Changing Antenna Placement

There are some strategic changes you can adopt in order to reserve your wifi signals within your range not others. If you place your wifi device somewhere near outdoors or near window then hackers can catch signals easily. So place your wifi device at center of your building of home or office.

Above is only a strategy to get full available signals from your wifi device. Now I will guide you how you can make wifi more secure by changing some network settings.

Wifi Network Security Settings

Disable DHCP

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol and it used to configure network devices. So it means if you activate or enable DHCP on your wireless network then hackers can configure your wifi device. So it is better to disable DHCP.

Disable SSID

Same like DHCP I strongly recommend change the SSID code and disable broadcast on SSID.

SNMP Settings

SNMP stands for Simple Network Management System. By default it will be available on public network. As name show it is a network management system so it holds all wirless and IP related information. So disabling SNMP will help you, otherwise hackers can get necessary information from it.

WEP stands for wireless encrypting protocol. As it encrypt the traffic on your wireless network. So must use WEP in your wireless settings.
