Why do I need to secure my Wireless Network?
Wireless networks are more convenient than wired networks and allow you to move from room to room in your home. But they can also be more vulnerable if not properly secured.
Wireless networks use signals that can pass through walls and can travel beyond the limits of your home. If you do not secure your network, nearby computers might be able to access your home network or use your Internet connection.
Cogeco’s Wireless Modem is configured by default with customized security measures, greatly decreasing the chance of any unauthorized access.
By securing your wireless network, you can help protect it from unauthorized access.
Your wireless network was originally secured by the technician who installed your wireless modem, but we recommend that you change your password for greater security.
