In this tutorial, we’re going to cover how to make sure your router is secured properly by creating a strong password that can only be accessed by those with access to your Internet connection. We also need to ensure that no one else has physical access to our router so they cannot plug their own devices directly into the Ethernet port. If someone does gain physical access to the device then they could potentially change settings such as DNS server addresses, IP address ranges, DHCP lease times, etc.. These changes would allow them to intercept any data sent over the network.
