Security features in TRENDnet® router
A router is a type of electronic device that helps and provides the complete support to interconnect computer networks. The routers help to interconnect two or more networks and selectively interchange packets of data between them. The data packets associated with it contains address information, which a router can use to determine if the source and destination are on the same network, or if the data packet must be transferred from one network to another. As and when multiple routers are used in a large collection of interconnected networks, the routers help in exchanging information about target system addresses, so as each router can build up a table showing the preferred paths between any two systems on the interconnected networks. TRENDnet router provides you with a wide range of advanced routers that offer you perfect connectivity. They provide you with greater coverage, advanced encryption and you can get the fastest speeds for all your wireless activities. You can read the following to understand the need to turn on the security features in your TRENDnet router and the things that can be done to increase security in your router.

- Keep your SSID safe
- Reasons for turning on security features
Secure with password
You can secure your TRENDnet router by setting up a very strong password for your access point or router. This lets your TRENDnet router stay protected and makes it complicated for hackers to intrude to your wireless network. Your TRENDnet router has an administrator password, which is necessary to access the router’s configuration. This password is provided by your router manufacturer and you can change the default password immediately as you set your wireless router on your network.
Keep your SSID safe
Another step to protect your TRENDnet router is to keep your SSID safe. The SSID stands for Service Set Identifier and with that it becomes easier to set-up clients in a wireless network, because you don’t actually need to know the network name. By disabling your wireless router from broadcasting SSID ensures that your network remains undetected to your neighbors or others who try to intrude your wireless network.
Turning the security features on is very much required to protect your TRENDnet router and the computers connected to your network from hackers. Chances are there that you may lose your confidential data or have hackers accessing your computers remotely and deleting the critical operating system files. You may find hackers infiltrate your TRENDnet router, if you have not enabled proper router security. This may finally end up with you losing your important data or you being unable to boot your computer, unless you perform a clean installation of your operating system. Setting up proper security features in your TRENDnet router gives you great protection against such threats.
