To increase the security on your wireless (Wi-Fi) network, we recommend that you take the following steps:
Α. SELECT THE MOST SECURE PROTOCOL USED BY YOUR NETWORK FOR DATA ENCRYPTION
If you have an active wireless network, select the WPA protocol for data encryption to have maximum security.
You can easily check your network's level of security by observing the “WLAN” light on your ADSL modem.
- If the light is green, the protocol offering maximum security (WPA) is enabled
- If the light is orange, the protocol offering medium security (WEP) is enabled
- If the light is red, your wireless network is unsecured and open to anyone
- If the light does not come on at all, your wireless network is disabled
You can disable or enable your wireless network at any time by pressing the button on the front of your modem until the “WLAN” light goes out or comes on respectively.
Β. CHANGE THE FACTORY SETTING OF THE WPA-PSK ENCRYPTION KEY
The WPA-PSK encryption key is used by WPA protocol for data encryption and is set at the factory. To ensure maximum security, change the factory setting of the key and then activate your Wi-Fi connection on your computer.
Below are the instructions on how to select the WPA protocol and change the factory setting of the WPA-PSK encryption key of your wireless connection:
In order not to lose your connection during the change, should your computer be connected to the wired ADSL modem.
If any problem arises when you are changing the setting, please contact the Cyta Call Centre, free of charge, on 132, select Technical Support (press 3) and then DSL Access (again, press 3).
