The router is a hardware firewall so your systems is already protected from intrusions. The internet can only see the routers i.p address and cannot see anything beyond that.If you want to be bulletproof do this as well. Do all your windows updates and keep them current. Get a good internet protection suite and keep it current.Norton Internet 2009 gets great scores from the experts and unlike old Norton products it is not a rescouce hog.It does all Antivirus,Spyware and Malware,root kit protection,anti phishing and tons more.

If your new modem has a wireless aerial then it has a built-in wireless router. If not then you need to plug your new modem into the wireless router.

I have a linksys WRT150N wireless n home router and I don't get internet signal with Ethernet or wireless all of the lights are blinking except power and security


I would ask for clarification, but the question that REALLY needs to be asked is: Are you signed up to any network? I've found that Linksis works as a motem. It picks up signals, and lets you onto the network as long as the network isn't locked. If it is locked, you'll need the WEP Key.

I have a Motorola SBG 900 router and I need the password for my network to connect my iPod touch


you will need to check the wireless settings of your router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.

There's another option to configure the security or encryption using your SBG 900

Connect your computer to one of the LAN ports
Access the configuration of the modem (example 192.168.254.1)
The if you got the configuration page open find the wireless settings and configure the WPA or WEP security using your modem.

Need to change the security of my SBG 900 wireless router


Plug your router in with an ethernet connection and type 192.168.100.1 into your browser address bar. This should load the modem login screen. Unless you have changed the username / password they are admin / motorola. From here you can click on wireless and configure the SSID and security setup.

You can't use a T connector for a network (to my knowledge there is no such thing for an ethernet cable). All computers must connect directly to the router, whether they connect wirelessly or not.

Your other option is you can purchase a network hub/switch, e.g. one of these:

You plug this it into your router. Then you can plug usually up to four computer into it, and they'll all be on the network.

Networking with Motorola SBG 900 Gateway


No, you don't need a router... that gateway supports up to 253 devices on your private network segment. That being said, you only have one ethernet port, so if your desktops have LAN cards rather than wireless, you'll need a hub to split off enough ports. If you add a router, it'll give you a whole new level of complexity. A gateway is a router/modem combo. It converts the Cable Internet signal from your ISP to ethernet and isolates all of the computers behind it into your own private network. A hub is basically an ethernet splitter... it won't isolate a new network segment, it'll just add more ports. Get a hub, they are cheaper and won't add a new level of complexity.
