One of many reasons I like using this Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832) together with the Apple ipad is that it supports many security features. Security is of the utmost importance especially in wireless network because we can never be sure who is connecting to the network if we don’t secure it.
I’ve compiled a step-by-step guide to effectively secure the wireless network when using Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832). We’ll need to connect the modem to a PC for configurations.
Step 1: Connect the modem to a PC, then switch it on.
Step 2: Run the Maxis Broadband Setup to install device driver and necessary applications.
Once the installation is completed, carry on with the following steps :-
1. Change Network Name (SSID)
Step 3: Open a web browser, enter http://192.168.1.1 to access the admin control panel.
Step 4: Click Advanced Settings > WLAN Settings.
WPA2 & AES offer better encryption than the default ones so I prefer to use them. The WPA Pre-Shared Key is the network password, we should also change the default one to a better password with at least 10 characters long combining letters (uppercase & lowercase), numbers and symbols.
The advanced mode for securing wireless network using Maxis WiFi Modem is available too. Check it out!
