3. Wireless Settings should be as below

Network Name/ SSID: Write Network Name which you want to Broadcast for your home wireless Connectivity.(Ensure there are no spaces or special characters in your network name)

Wireless SSID Broadcast: Enable Broadcast

Region: Asia/ India ( As per options available in settings)

Mode: Mixed/ Both b and g mode

Security Option: WPA2 PSK (Wi-Fi protected access Pre-Shared Key)

Passphrase Key: User has to set this key as per his convenience and same has been used while connecting WI-FI devices to his personal Router.

Note: Make sure that your passphrase key is having strong keyword so that no one can guess it easily. Strong Passphrase key will help to ensure security.

4. Internet/ WAN Settings:
Internet Settings:
Select Option from one of the below
Dynamic IP/ Get Dynamically From ISP/ Automatic Configuration-DHCP

5. LAN Settings:
This setting will specify IP Settings allotted to your Device( Laptop/Smart Device etc).
LAN Settings/Router Settings/DHCP Server Settings: Keep this on DHCP.

6. Keep Firewall settings disable/off.
This is suggested as many customer faced frequent disconnection and after checked thoroughly found that some router’s self-firewall has very low threshold for syn packet hence blocking IP temporary & then release after some interval, this resembles intermediate disconnection.

> Finally, Save above settings and remove cable from Router.
> Restart the Router.
> Now you can able to view SSID which you have broadcasted, on laptop wi-fi utility.
Click on SSID, It will ask for Passphrase Key, Enter same key which you have set on router configuration.
