    I bought Asus DSL N10E, Wireless Router. I have set up it with NO security.
    Can anyone teach me how to secure it with password (WPA/WPA2 , WPE, whatever!) ?


    What to do in here ?

    No security means anyone within the wireless range of your router will be able to connect - and consume the data and bandwidth meant for you. For the screen that you've pasted, I'd recommend -

    1. 2.4 GHz (Better Range)
    2. SSID -> Abhishek's Wi-Fi or any other name that you want your wireless connection to show.
    3. Encryption: WPA2 should do.
    4. WPA-PSK (Pre Shared Key) - Enter a keyword that the network will ask you when you connect. Don't keep it too complex; but keep it something that you can easily remember. Typing complicated passwords on phone is difficult. But it's a one time job!

    @Kaustubh Katdare There are two WPA : 1) WPA2 (AES) 2) WPA2 (TKIP)
    or WPA/WPA2 ?

    WPA 2 (AES) .

    alrighty done. Thanks.
  7. WPA2( AES ) for higher security and encrypting your data and password

    Disable SSID broadcasting.
    Whatever device you want to connect you need to enter SSID/password manually.
