We get our internet service through Wildblue satellite. A few months ago we installed a router so that two computers could get online. A month ago our upload usage went WAY above our contracted amount. ...

ring your ISP internet service provider and ask them to provide you with the user name and password that you provided to get the internet
you might have to check your windows firewall settings this may vary on the operating system you are using
click start control panel system and security windows firewall you can block persons not on the list you provide also
scroll to the bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click you can select task manager applications also processes you will see whats running on your computer also select users you will see who is using your computer

hope this helps

I am trying to find the connection for wildblue so that I can hook up a belkin router?

Are you trying to install the router ?
Your internet service provider is wildblue.
First make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected directly to the modem.
If not then you will need to contact ISP and get internet working on modem.
If yes then you can set up the router manually.

At&t usbconnect mercury

It is remotely possible but will be very complicated. You will have to leave the computer with the Mercury powered up all the time and use internet connection sharing to provide access to the other computers. But also you will need to reconfigure your router as a dumb switch since your PC will now be the DHCP server. In short it's not easy and not practical - but it is possible.

Lost Wireless Connection to Laptops

the internet port on the router needs to be connected to the Wildblue modem.

everything else connects to the OTHER ports on the router, never to the internet port.

you may need to power cycle both your wildblue modem and your router at this point.
