In today’s world of threatening and hacking, everybody is very much particular to secure their home security system, prevent his or her home network from third-party or unknown persons, etc. Everybody wants a safe, secure, and reliable networking system in order to keep his or her entire security system, door locks, smart devices, hardware, and software everything away from the unauthorized source. Also, remember dear users that you are not supposed to perform the task of Netgear WiFi Range Extender Setup in a public hotspot or Internet connection. What you have to do:
- Disable the public WiFi hotspot and enable the personal one.
- Make sure that you have active and live Internet connection coming out of the main router.
- Do not hide your device just because of its ugly looks.
- Do not place router and the extender far away from each other.
- Plug in both the devices into an electrical outlet and also connect them both with the help of an Ethernet cable.
- After that, what you have to do, grab your smart device, connect it with the range extender, launch a web browser and type field of the address bar.
Moreover, there are lot many things that you have to know, apply, and implement.

Built an advance and extra strong security among the unknown and unauthorized sources
Avoid using and creating Pre-Shared Keys
Think you bought a new device and set p a wireless access point and also enable WPA2-PSK as your personal encryption; assure that you must create a pre-shared key that would be extra strong, safe, and reliable. Avoid setting an uncomplicated and unfussy Pre-Shared key. People set and create an easy network password, just because they have to enter every time they connect with their wireless network. But we would like to suggest our users, not to do so. Setting up an easy password makes your life a lot more simple and convenient, but it will also make for an unknown to crack the password you applied to secure your network.
Avoid using common or default Wireless Network Names (SSID)
Dear users are you sure that when setting up your wireless access point, you change the network name from default to something secure, convenient, and reliable. Mostly, 50% of the people in the entire world had left wireless settings to default, set by the manufacturer or the Internet Service Provider. Do you know the fact that the unknown sources have the list of the top most common 1000 SSID? They can easily crack the network name and password using the most common SSID in use and easily have access on them. Still, if your network name is not on the list of unknown people, they can still generate rainbow tables for your unambiguous and definite network name. It will be the easiest task for them.
Build as long Pre-Shared key as you can
Well, in this world of computing and networking technology, nothing is possible. Moreover, the hard drive capacity and the computing power desired to support cracking long pre-shared key that has become impractical for keys more than about 20-22 characters. On the other hand, WPA2-PSK support more than 60 characters of a pre-shared key that means you have enough space for something that is more complicated, thorny, and knotty. Go and built an extra-strong password as you can. Perform the process of a most relevant and valuable app that is very much useful, manages, and controls the security, speed, etc of your entire networking system.
Create your Wireless Network Name as Random as Possible
Be certain and assure yourself that your SSID is not on the list of unknown resources (top 1000 SSID). This step will definitely prevent you from getting into the trap and also make you rid of becoming an easy target for an unauthorized source that already has the pre-built Rainbow Tables for cracking network with the least common Wireless Network Name (SSID). In order to prevent yourself from such brain-teaser and annoying issues, built your SSID as random as you can, make it more complex by adding digits, number, and alphabets with lack of dictionary words of about 30-32 characters.
