How to setup your Wifi and Wifi Security
#1
Lightbulb 
Prerequisites:
You will need to hook up the Cat5 from your pc or laptop to access the router correctly. If the router came from us directly you can access over wifi because the router is default open to the public and not secure. This manual will help you Lock it down.

Login to your router at http://192.168.1.1 (Or if we set it up as a VPN Configuration to attach to a primary router http://192.168.2.1)
Default Router Username: root
Default Router Password:  admin,



Step 1 - [Setting up your DNS Settings]

(Make sure they look like below) And scroll to the bottom and press Apply)

We recommend googles dns servers and open dns servers
8.8.8.8 - Google Primary
208.67.220.220 - OpenDNS Primary
8.8.4.4 - Google Secondary
208.66.222.222 - OpenDNS Secondary

Change the 2.4 Ghz Radio SSID to something like “MyRouter2.4” or “DDWRT2.4”

 Step 5 - [Securing Your Router Access]

Last but not least you need to secure your router Username and Password to Access the Router.
Enter what you want CAREFULLY into the boxes below. If you mess the username up you will not be able to login and need to reset your router and start all over. Write your settings down.
After you have your settings as below scroll to the bottom and press apply. That’s it!
