Rogers has introduce a new modem to their collection named the Hitron CDE-30364. This will show you how to secure it if you happen to lose the USB key they give you.

Steps

1Start off with the web browser. After the modem is set up we now need to access the router to change some settings. You need to go to your internet browser (Internet Explorer/Firefox/Chrome .etc) and open it up.

2The web browser is now open. In the address bar you need to type in the default IP address. The IP address of this gateway modem is 192.168.0.1 and press enter.

3Now you're at the login screen. The default username is,"cusadmin"and password is,"password". Once you enter your credentials press Enter.

4Now that you've logged in to the router, you should go to the"Wireless"tab on the left hand side of the screen.

5Make sure these are set to this setting. First, wireless needs to be enabled. Wireless modem should be set to"11B/G/N Mixed"and channel set to auto.

6Name your network. In the same tab where it says,"Primary SSID", that is where we are going to input the network name. It can really be anything you want.

7Add a security password to the network. Now we need to set up some security for the network. There are 3 tabs along the top, the middle one is security, click that.

8Choose the security type. There are 2 types of security for this router, WEP and WPA-Personal. We'll set it WPA-Personal. Now the other settings are set by default. The only other thing we need to do here is make a password. Pre-shared Key is where the password goes, make it anything you want. Just remember, the easier it is someone could possibly figure it out. Hit apply to set the password.

9Make your network hidden. This will make your network more secure. Back in the setup tab where we chose the name of the network there is a check box with"hidden"above it. Check the box and now your network is hidden from other people.

10Connect your device to the network. To be able join it wirelessly you have to search for it in the Connection Manager. In the bottom right hand side of your monitor click on Connection Manager symbol (the one that has signal bars) and chose"Other Network"

11Type out the network credentials. From there you need to type in the network name and password you chose from earlier.

12Happy surfing. Now you're connected to your network and it is secure with a password.
