I login on to the site to change Wi-Fi password. And things. But I looked around how to get fastest and most secure reliable connection. And found out about changing the DNS to Google's. I'm wondering if I did the right thing and and changed it right. And before changing any settings had kept dropping connection at least 1 or 2 times every hour or couple. NoW it's dropping more.
Can someone please point me to a site that would show me pics when ND explain to me what to change to get fastest and most secure and reliable connection possible. And also modem is literally within 16 feet of my room.
I post on my off hours, away from work and any statements made are my opinions, and do not necessarily reflect the views and beliefs of Spectrum Communications.
Change it back to the factory settings and set the DHCP lease to a day, not an hour.
For better security buy a real routerand use a dumb bridged modem.
And for ultimate security, turn off all wireless and use ethernet.
All wireless can be interfered with as well as hacked.
Just to save you some time looking them up, the DNS server IP addresses to use forTWC and Spectrum are 126.96.36.199 & 62 - 61 is the primary and 62 is the alternate, used while 61 is off line receiving updates or for service.
