Enhancing the Security of Your Network


Enhancing the Security of Your Network


Unlike wired network data, your wireless data transmissions can be received well beyond your walls by anyone with a compatible adapter. For this reason, use the security features of your wireless settings of mywifiext.net. The WiFi range extender provides highly effective security features, Indoors, computers can connect over 802.11b/g wireless networks at ranges of up to 300 feet. Such distances can allow for others outside of your immediate area to access your network. There are several ways you can enhance the secur ity of your wireless network in mywifiext set up.  Restrict access based on MAC address.


You can restrict access to only trusted computers so that unknown computers cannot wirelessly connect to the WPN824EXT in mywifiext.net. MAC address filtering adds an obstacle against unwanted access to your network, but the data broadcast over the wireless link is fully exposed. Turn off the broadcast of the wireless network name (SSID). If you disable broadcast of the SSID, only devices that have the correct SSID can connect. This nullifies the wireless network “discovery” feature of some products such as Windows XP, but the data is still fully exposed to a determined snoop using specialized test equipment like wireless sniffers. • WEP. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) data encryption provides data security.


WEP Shared Key authentication and WEP data encryption block all but the most determined eavesdropper. Wi-Fi Protected Access–Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK) data encryption provides strong data security. WPA-PSK blocks eavesdropping,  Because this is a new standard, wireless device driver and software availability might be limited. Wireless Settings Record Before customizing your wireless settings, NETGEAR recommends that you print this section and record the following information. If you are working with an existing wireless network, the person who set up or is responsible for the network can provide this information.


Otherwise, you will choose the settings for your wireless network. Either way, record the settings for your wireless network in the spaces below.  Wireless network name (SSID). The SSID identifies the wireless network. You can use up to 32 alphanumeric characters. The SSID is casesensitive. The SSID in the wireless adapter card must match the SSID of the WiFi range extender. In some configuration utilities (such as in Windows XP), the term “wireless network name” is used instead of SSID.  If WEP authentication is used. Circle one: Open System, Shared Key, or Auto. If you select Shared Key, the other devices in the network will not connect unless they are set to Shared Key as well and are configured with the correct key, WEP encryption key size. Choose one: 64-bit or 128-bit in mywifiext.net set up.


Again, the encryption key size must be the same for the wireless adapters and the WiFi range extender. – Data encryption (WEP) keys. There are two methods for creating WEP data encryption keys. Whichever method you use, record the key values in the spaces below. Passphrase method,  These characters are casesensitive. Enter a word or group of printable characters, and click the Generate Keys button. Not all wireless devices support the passphrase method. If WPA-PSK authentication is used. – Passphrase.  These characters are case-sensitive. Enter a word or group of printable characters. When you use WPA-PSK, the other devices in the network will not connect unless they are set to WPA-PSK as well and are configured with the correct passphrase. Use the procedures described in this chapter to configure the WiFi range extender. Store this information in a safe place.

Troubleshoot Internet Browsing
