Port 80 is the web port. Whenever you look at a web page you are going to port 80 on the server. If you block port 80 then you won't see web pages. I am assuming it's outgoing traffic to web servers you wish to block. A standard router will have incoming port 80 blocked by default. You would OPEN port 80 if you had a web server at home.
In the router table you should be able to see the offender.. from there you can block them but they may just go to another computer to log on.... But this takes experience. Most important change your password.. words (wifi) too.. use wifi encryption .. and make sure that remote login on the modem is off. This is the first level of defense It could be more serious..
Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.
I assume that you have a wireless router that is connected to your Motorola cable-modem.
Connect to the web-server "inside" the router, and configure the wireless network:
* set an SSID -- the "name" for your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network
Now, your wireless communications between your computer and your router will be encrypted, i.e., "secure".
Also, having a password keeps other computers out, if their owners do not know the password.
The WEP encryption key is configured in the wireless settings in the router. If your wireless router can support WPA and WPA2 then I suggest you use this because it is a much stronger encryption.
