Home Network Wireless Connection Settings

This section provides a tutorial example of how to view and change wireless connection settings with the DSL modem acting as a home network gateway.

As we can see from the previous section, the home network provided by the gateway modem has two parts:

The configuration of the Ethernet network part is very simple. So let's review the configuration of the wireless network part only.

1. Open a Web browser and enter this address: http://192.168.2.1/. The configuration main page shows up.

2. Click the "Home Network" icon on top of the page. The home network summary page shows up.

3. Click the "Wireless Settings" menu entry. The wireless settings page shows up:
DSL Modem Internet Connection Details

4. Change the Network Name to "Wang". Keep SSID Broadcast enabled so that my laptop can see the wireless network named as "Wang".

5. Change the Wireless Network Security to be enabled and keep the "Use default encryption key" radio button checked. From now on, when connecting my laptop to Wang's wireless network, I need to enter the default encryption key, which is printed on the back of the modem.
