How to create a secure password for the Wi-Fi network

Before resetting your Wi-Fi router password, you need to think about a few aspects. It is important that the code created is easy to remember, but at the same time strong. The website of the specialist company NetSpot gives some tips that can help you set the perfect password.

  • Create passwords with at least eight characters;
  • Use uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols randomly;
  • Create the password based on a phrase that is easy for you to remember and, if possible, make deliberate misspellings or substitute numbers for letters. An example given is to exchange i love hamburger by 3uS28uRgEr$!1;
  • Finally, avoid very obvious combinations, such as numerical or alphabetical sequences, repetitions, birthdays, use of obvious words (like admin, administrator), etc.

Wi-Fi tips

On its website, Vivo gives some tips to make the most of the Wi-Fi signal. One of them concerns the installation location of the router. The ideal is to leave it in a higher place and free of obstacles. This helps to have a stronger signal, as there are some elements inside the house that can get in the way.

So, note if between the device and the router are refrigerator, television, mirror, metal, water, tile or a person. They can generate interference and, consequently, reduce quality. To help, always keep the router antennas up.

The company also highlights that the speed of the internet also depends on the device used. Therefore, a more modern cell phone will probably have a faster connection than an older one.

In addition, the maximum speed advertised by operators can only be reached via Ethernet cable. By Wi-Fi it is not possible due to the above mentioned interferences.

Finally, the more people using the same network, the slower it should be. After all, the bandwidth is now shared between the devices in use. If any one of them is downloading, playing a game or watching a streaming service, it could alone be consuming most of the bandwidth.
