The first phase of safeguarding your WiFi system is the similar to the initial step for pretty much everything else in PC organizing: “change the defaults”. Any hacker can discover what the default password is for a given program or gadget in a jiffy. The defaults are set to allow you the consumer to access the system the first time. Subsequently, you have to change them to keep these hackers and snoopers away.

How to connect your Zuki Wi-fi

Plug your router to the modem. The router has a port on its back marked WAN/WLAN/Internet. Connect the aforementioned port to the modem using a standard Ethernet link. Ensure the router is on.

While it’s not necessary for one to use the Ethernet cable, using it only allows you to fidget with the settings without losing your connection to the router. For excellent efficiency while setting up the router, connect it next to the PC whereas you change the settings.

After you are done designing the router, move it to its permanent position or a place where you won’t be interfering with it on a daily basis.  If your router was bought a with software, install it using the Ethernet link. Using the software, rename your wireless network and the type of security that you need to use.

WPA2 is considered to be the most secure system. Enter a password and continue. All router programming will certainly identify your web settings.

This is the info that the router needs to decrypt your internet connection and transfer it to other wireless devices. Open the router’s configuration sheet.  

Do this through a web browser. Search the exact Zuku router IP address from the documentation given. You will be asked for a username and password to continue with the router setup.

These are similarly equipped in the documentation that came with your router. Regular defaults are username: admin and Password: password or admin.

Give your Internet connection information. This integrates the IP address and DNS records from your network access dealer. Most routers will fill this segment automatically.

Should this fail, contact your ISP for the data that you have to input. Set up your wireless settings. Many routers have a Wireless Settings section towards the highest point of the router’s menu. From this section, you can;

  • enable or disable the wireless signal
  • change the system name
  • Set the encryption.

To set the name of the system, select the field marked SSID. This is the name that will be shown on any device that identifies your system.

Set the encryption to the most current form endorsed by your router. Generally, this will be WPA2. WPA2 works with only one password. You can input any password you like. Strong passwords contain upper and lowercase letters, digitals, and numerical.

Apply your settings. Confirm that you tap the Apply/Save Changes button in your router’s design when you are through with changing the settings. Subsequently router will process for a minute, and your new settings will produce results.
