Crucial Changes to Implement:
- The router administrator password and username should be changed from their default settings.
- The name of your wireless network (SSID) should be altered from: Actiontec, Linksys, etc.
- Change the wireless security mode to WPA2 and utilize a long password.
"Your router is the first line of defense against hackers trying to access all the internet-connected devices in your home. Sadly, many of the top Wi-Fi routers are easy to hack. You should be concerned—and also make sure your router is set up properly." -Melanie Pinola
