“Home” routers pop up everywhere, from the actual home to good-sized organizations and businesses that want to cut corners on wireless networking expenses. Amazingly, some best practices involved in configuring and securing these access points still are not practiced, despite more than a decade of warnings about what a bad idea it is to leave your SSID set to “default.”

This guide covers all the basics when it comes to securing home networking equipment. Among the pointers you’ll find: use a directional antenna to limit the range of your WLAN. If hackers can’t get a signal from the parking lot, you’ll be that much safer.
