    I would like to help you out, but need more information. Which router model do you exactly have?
    Look at the sticker on the bottom of the unit and you will find that information (i.e. WRT54Gv4 or WRT54GLv2.)
    Come back here and leave a comment with that data - I will check back and help you set up your security.

What is the default Password for Hughes Net Router? Can't find the papers on it..Hughes H1100 is on the front of it..

Did you mean HT1100? If so, here's the manual:
But that's a satellite modem, not a router.

Here's some evidence that HughesNet routers have:
Username: admin
Password: password (or 1234 on older routers)

Maybe what you have there is an Allwin H1100 VoIP gateway/router.

Why not ask HughesNet for the default password?

For beginners-how do i connect the linksys e1000 to my hughes net modem? or do I hook the cable directly to my tower so i can use my laptop in another room

The modem will plug into the router, it should come with a cable for this, there will be 5 ports on the router, one will be labeled as internet most likely , this is the one you use, the other 4 will be numbered and you can use any of these to connect your tower. the wireless should work automaticly for your laptop, but if you want to make it a secure network, please contact me directly and ill walk you through it.
hope this was helpful

I would like to lock and secure my connection that way im the only one using it. How do i do it please help.

The way to secure your router is to enable Security at one level or another. Log in to your router, open Wireless settings, verify your SSID (Network Name), and choose security other than None. Whatever passcode you set is the code you use on all computers to access your router. If the passcode is not known then wireless access will not be granted. NOTE: Wired access has no passcodes, as you pretty much know who's plugged in to it.

Lose internet connection (hughes net) when hooking up router

I would contact your hughes net, that is a satelite provider. That is a total different system, than dsl or cable. Hughes net should be able to walk you through the setup.

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem

I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes and Netgear

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.

NetWave Base G4 router "goes to sleep"

well one thing if your router uses the same IP address as your hughes net then they will interfere with each other. hook your router to your pc and leave the hughes modem out of the equation then go to command prompt on your pc and type in ipconfig that will tell you what ip address your router is using that way you can get into the settings of the router and change whatever you need to change.....I would just set it back to default and make sure the ip address is not because that is the dynamic ip for hughes

No connection to internet

First thing you need is to run the set up disk that you should have received when you purchased modem. It should run you through the steps. This should also allow you to set up your wireless connection also. It should also provide you the access code for your wireless security. Basically what this does is prevent unauthorized access to your network. Whenever you add additional computers you will need to set up each individually and enter access codes. If you don't have a disk you might need to contact manufacturer to get a replacement disk. Good luck.
