Encryption is a method for converting the data into some symbolic or in other formats it cannot understand the hackers and intruders By using of this  method, the hacker or intruders cannot decode or find or understand your data directly

there are 2 encryption methods to protect the network that are WAP(wired Equivalent Privacy)
and WPA(Wireless Protected Access) but these are free tools to allow everyone  encryption by using
brute force method to use and Protect  or Provide high security Must Use the WPA2 it is the latest
technology and slandered for highest protection Make sure the devices which support the Wap2 encryption and use the Strong encryption method and use the mixture of the words and don't use common words.

Must Use Strong Passwords for your router:

Most of the users can't use the strong passwords for their network they can use default passwords for their network, it is the biggest mistake the hackers and intruders can use this and very easily track the passwords the manufacturer cannot be able to give the strongest passwords to the users because they can give the option to the users to change their username and password to their choice so you must change your user name and password very strong using mixture of letters and numbers.

Enable Mack address Based Filtering:

MAC address identifies Each and every device is connected to your network Mac address is the mixture of the alphanumeric Key separated by the commas by enabling of MAC address based filtering allows the users or devices having only particular MAC address if you want give them to a connection you/owner must enter mac address to allow them to connect so without owners permission the others cannot connect so you must enable MAC address Filtering.

Up to date your Firmware Daily:

Keep up to date your daily because  router vendors regularly release the firmware you should daily check the vendors website for regular for updations and if it changes you can update your firmware gently .

Reduce the signal range and Turn off network:

you must Reduce the signal strength for avoiding of the caching of your network from hackers if hackers are connected to your network low signal will cause the slower connection to the hackers so they cannot use it if you're not using your network you can turn off your network to avoid the hackers if you not turn off then hacker has the long time to hack your network so don't give the opportunity
