It's time for a router emergency call to 911. You knew about hackers stealing our credit cards from retailers, the NSA spying on anyone who picked up a cellphone or writes an email, and ad trackers watching our every move and purchase.Hang on, we've got a string of recent reports of router vulnerabilities. Backdoors have been found in NetGear and Linksys routers, two of the biggest sellers. A host of other brand names including D Link, Micronet, Tenda and others have also been the subject of mass attacks that let hackers hijack your browser, produce fake search results, and download malware into all the devices connected to your network.Yes, it's possible and it's happening. Take a deep breath. Here's what you need to do to secure your router.Many service providers give you a cable or DSL modem with a built in router. These steps still work for combined units.First, let's protect your router. There are three simple steps.1. You need to do a geeky thing called "updating the firmware." Every router maker's process is a little different, but here's the basic outline.First, find your router's program on your computer. Fire it up and it should automatically find your device.If you don't have a router program, look up your router's manual online and see what the device's IP address is.Type the number that corresponds to your router's address into your browser and enter the default login password found in the manual.While you're in the router settings, make sure to change the default login password that came with the router. There should be a button labeled "update firmware." Hit that and go through the process. That will, at least in theory, provide the company's latest protection. (Bonus: It might increase your device's performance, too.)2. Make sure you turn on wireless encryption and provide a strong password. Strong passwords are a pain, but for your home network you Converse Black Low

a pain, but it will make your network secure from anything but industrial strength attacks.3. Take your router offline and make it invisible to passers by. In the settings, turn off SSID (or network name) broadcasting. This keeps your network hidden unless you know the name. Be sure to change the network name to something that's hard for someone to guess.It won't foil the most dedicated bad guys going around sniffing our networks, but it should stop casual hackers and snoops. Jokesters like to call their networks something like "FBI Surveillance" or "NSA Snoops."Now your router is safe from attacks.On Converse Brown Shoes the Kim Komando Show, the Converse Gold Shoes
