Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol,General router DHCP is enabled by default, so that all wireless devices within the signal range can be automatically assigned to the IP address, which left a great security risk. An attacker can easily get a lot of information about your router by distributing the IP address, so disabling the DHCP feature is necessary.
General wireless AP or router has WEP encryption and WPA encryption, WEP includes both 64-bit and 128-bit encryption type, as long as enter 10 or 26 x 16 string as encrypted password can protect your wireless network.

Because each network card’s MAC address is unique, you can increase security by setting the MAC address list. After the IP address filtering feature is enabled, only IP addresses in the list of MAC users can access the wireless network, the other is not in the list can not be connected to the network.
