Step 2: Enter the credentials of router to login.


Step 3: Select “Home Network/Wireless Network/WLAN” or a comparable option once you are in the network control panel. This is the area of the control panel where you can change some of the network’s default settings. You can configure the network by selecting the option. This button might have the words “Configure” or “Modify” or a similar phrase.


Step 4: Uncheck any choice that includes the phrase “Broadcast Network Name.” The selection may read “Hide SSID.” You can stop your browser from automatically broadcasting its name to anyone with a WiFi-capable device by making this modification. However, keep in mind that anyone you want to join to your network will now need to enter the network name into their device.


Step 5: Take a look at these extra choices if you want to make your browser more secure. You are probably concerned about anyone accessing your network if you’re attempting to make your network invisible. Hiding your network’s SSID won’t do much to help. The radio waves that your router continuously emits can still be intercepted by hackers, giving them access to your network. Make the following adjustments in the same area of the control panel where you concealed your SSID:

  • Switch on MAC filtering. All WiFi-capable devices have unique identifiers called MAC (Media Access Control) addresses. You will need to manually enter the addresses that have access to your wireless network if you set MAC filtering.
  • Put WPA2 encryption on. One of the best ways to improve the security of your network is to use WPA2 encryption. Go to the security tab in the control panel for your network. From any drop-down list or option list, choose WPA2. A PSK will be requested of you (Pre-shared key). Any device connecting to your network will need to enter this key before they can access the network. Try to extend its life as much as you can by keeping it in a secure location.


Step 6: Select “Apply” or a button that looks similar. The changes you made to your network have been updated.
