A router security cheat sheet

There are a lot of knobs to tweak when making a home router as secure as possible. I keep a pretty comprehensive checklist of router security features on my website. 

But that list is targeted at techies. Non-techies need a simpler list with just the most important things to do/check/change. I mention this because on the August 13th episode of his Tech Guy radio show, Leo Laporte boiled down the router security list a bit too much.

In response to Tom from Huntington Beach, Laporte said “the only thing you really need to do is turn on WPA2 encryption … Turn it on and give it a password that isn’t obvious.”

That leaves out quite a lot, even for non-techies.
