Wireless Router Security
Dear WildBlue Customers,
This is an important notice if you have a wireless router connected to your WildBlue system.
WIRELESS ROUTER USERS: Many users simply plug in their router and start using the network without giving much thought to security. Take a few extra minutes to configure the security settings of your wireless router. Almost all routers have an administrator password that is needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. As soon as you set up your router your first step should be to change the default password to something unique. Your router also comes with default security settings that need to be changed. If the settings are not changed there is the potential of having neighbors or someone driving by accessing your router causing your bandwidth to increase. If your Internet account exceeds the bandwidth limit, your system may either slow down or have service interruptions.
If you have any questions regarding the setup of your wireless router please call the toll free number that came with it or contact WildBlue technical support at their toll free number 1-866-543-3414.
