Changing a MI424WR-GEN2 Router from WEP to WPA2 for Wi-Fi

Someone reported to me that when she attempted to connect to the WiFi service at her office that she received the message below on her phone:

Weak Security

WEP is not considered secure.

If this is your Wi-Fi network, configure the router to use WPA2 Personal (AES) security type.

When I checked the Verizon-provided router providing the wireless service at her office, I found it was an ActionTec MI424WR-GEN2 router. To change the wireless security on that router from WEP to WPA2 take the following steps.

  1. Log into the router and, from the main menu, click on Wireless Settings.
  2. Click on Advanced Security Settings.
  3. From the Advanced Security Settings menu, select WPA2 (An enhanced version of WPA providing stronger security settings.
  4. At the WPA2 window, type a key, which is akin to a password, in the Pre-Shared Key field and click on the Apply button.
  5. When you click on Wireles Settings again from the top menu bar, you should then see the key you provided in the WPA2 line.

Configuring an RDP firewall rule on a MI424WR-GEN2 Router

To configure an Actiontec MI424WR-GEN router/firewall to permit an RDP connection through to a system behind the firewall, you can take the steps listed here to configure the device for connections on either the standard RDP port of 3389 or a non-standard port of your choosing. You may want to choose a nonstandard port to reduce the number of break-in attempts on the port from systems on the Internet or in cases where you have one public IP address for the outside of the router, but multiple systems behind the router that need to be accessed by users via RDP.
