Change MSI RG310EX Default Wifi Name (SSID)

Rename your MSI RG310EX Default Wifi Name (SSID). Some MSI routers come with default network names (with the name of the manufacturer). We recommend to use a different name because a default name unnecessarily identifies the make of your router, making it easier for attackers to break in.

When you’re deciding on your new password, try to pick a complex series of numbers and letters and try to avoid using a password that can be guessed easily.

Where are you placing the MSI RG310EX router in the house?

You wouldn’t think about this at first, but where you place your MSI RG310EX also has a bearing on your security.

Place the MSI RG310EX router as close as possible to the middle of your house. The first benefit is that all the rooms in your house have the same access to the Internet. The second benefit is that you don’t want to have your wireless signal range reach too much outside your house, where it can be easily intercepted by cybercriminals.

For this reason, don’t place your MSI RG310EX router next to a window, since there’s nothing to obstruct the signal going outside your house.
