If you do not use the wireless setting then just go to your router page and disable wireless. If you do use wireless, then you need to set up some type of security. You can either use WPA or WEP. The best solution is WPA it is easier to set up and has stronger encryption algorithms.

this is what your settings should look like, but instead of the key in box 1, use something unique, try not to use personal information since it will be far to easy for your neighbors to guess.

Trying to access DSL with HP modem

If you mean you're trying to use DSL service with the modem that came built into an HP computer, you can't. That modem is for dial-up Internet service only, or if you want to use your computer as a fax machine along with a scanner or all-in-one printer.

To connect to DSL, you'll need a DSL modem. If you're just getting service, your service provider should have supplied one. (Actually, I think you have the option now of ordering DSL service and not getting a modem if you already have one. Maybe you did this.) The DSL modem has a telephone-type jack to connect to the phone line (same as on the HP modem), but the connection to your computer is through a different, larger, jack usually labeled "Ethernet" or "Computer". If you don't have a modem, you can easily find them for sale. You can buy new ones at retailers who sell computers, and many used ones are available on eBay or on your local Craig's list.

Another possibility is that you already have a DSL modem and are asking how to connect an addtional computer. If this is so, you don't connect the new computer to the DSL phone line. Instead, you need to share the network connection coming from the modem. This is done using a router, which allows several computers to use the same connection either through a cable or wirelessly. The DSL modems typically supplied now have the router built in, with 4 connections for wired computers and wireless capability as well. If your modem is an older one intended for a single connection only, it will have just one network connection. If this is the case for you, you'll need to supply your own router.

How do I secure wireless router ... currently open .. I'm attempting to restrict piggy-backing for security reason.

Which router do you have.You have to first open the administration page of the router. Better to do it with a laptop or computer attached to the router physically with a cable as the wireless configuration might corrupt data as the router will disconnect when you change the security setting. Default ip for router's are , you can see your manual for the correct address and even the username and password would be provided in the documentation. Once inside the administration select Wireless and then Wireless Security may change according to manufacturer. Here you have many choices like WEP or WPA, i think for home networks WPA is a better choice as WEP is easier to break. Select TKIP under that, then you should enter a pass phrase. This is going to be like your password.It has to be minimum 11 characters long.Save settings and check if the pass phrase is asked for when connecting to your router. If it does you have secured your wireless connection.

Router not speaking to modem

you need to change dhcp from the modem to the router to be a different network than what your router hands out via dhcp. you will also need to set dns up in the router to forward to the upstream modem.
