Do you know? Your WIFI has been stolen by strangers! Aug 01, 2018

Sometimes watching the video suddenly stops, or the download speed drops significantly, then be wary, your router may be stolen by strangers! So how do you judge whether Wi-Fi has been stolen?

Many smart routers now come with a mobile app, which can be used to view connected devices at any time. It is also a breeze to kick the device. But the router is not a year-old device. Many people still use old antiques. For them, how should they be viewed and stolen? How to avoid it? The following simple 6 strokes solve the problem of misappropriation.

How to identify whether it has been stolen?

First, the speed of the network is slow for no reason.

If you download it normally, browsing is fast, and the network speed suddenly becomes slower. Be alert.

The second point is to find strange devices.

Unexpected devices found on computer networks can be sure that the network has been stolen by others.

The third point is to check the IP address.

Through the management interface, the devices listed on the router are compared with the computer name, IP address, and hardware address. If they are inconsistent, you are stolen.

How do I view the devices connected to my router?

Enter the router URL on the browser page. The URL is usually written in the router manual. It is usually “192.168.1.1” or “192.168.0.1”. After entering the user name and password, go to the operation page and click “DHCP Server” to view the “client list”. ", will show all devices connected to the wireless router. Devices that are not known, that is, have been stolen.

Teach you to quickly set a copy password!

1. Open your browser with your computer or mobile phone and enter 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.

2. Enter the username and password to enter admin.

3. Change the password in the wireless device management bar and replace the original password with a combination of uppercase letters and lowercase letters of 10 or more digits.

4. Turn off the power of the router and turn it on again after 5 seconds.

The first trick of anti-theft with WIFI

Lengthen the wireless routing password

In the router's settings interface, go to the "Security" option, then select the WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK password, so you can get a password of 8-63 characters. Make sure the user's password is easy to remember but hard to guess.

The second measure of anti-theft with WIFI

Turn off the routed SSID broadcast

By disabling the SSID broadcast settings, people on the network will not find your wireless network name. Although the efficiency of wireless networks will be affected, it is worthwhile to exchange security.

The third measure of anti-theft with WIFI

Turn off DHCP

When the SSID broadcast is turned off, the DHCP function needs to be turned off, that is, the wireless route cannot automatically assign an IP address to the wireless client. In this way, even if the other party can find the wireless network signal, the network cannot be used.

Anti-theft with WIFI fourth move

Modify the default IP address of the router

Generally, the management address of the wireless router is 192.168.1.1. If it is modified to 192.168.44.1 or other numbers, it can be easily guessed by the network.

Anti-theft with WIFI fifth move

Reduce the transmit power

At present, some wireless routers have the function of adjusting the wireless transmission power, and the wireless network coverage can be controlled by adjusting the wireless transmission power. This also prevents the net from being smashed because it is difficult for the other party to search for your wireless signal.

Anti-theft with WIFI sixth move

Bind MAC address

Find your own Ethernet adapter MAC address, then find the wireless MAC address filtering in the routing settings interface, add your own MAC address, so that other devices can not use the network when not allowed.
