I'm guessing this is a wireless router in which case you need to look at the router configuration and enable some security features such as changing the access rights and your admin password.

Usually typing the ethernet router IP address on the in your Internet Explorer address box will bring up the configuration.

Having an open router path to the internet for other wireless users is fine by the way. And unlikely to comprimise your security. You simply become a free mini ISP.
But if you feel it is slowing your own usage then block it.

OK, to clarify.
Ethernet = modem?
Wireless box = router?
Do you have hardwire connection to router?
Check the wireless settings in router with hardwire connection.
Most routers use random channel search for wireless.
I usually set this for to use one channel only.
Stops random interference and connections.
FYI: Most routers are on 2.4ghz - same as cordless phones and some hand radios - the frequencies over lap sometimes - even though they aren't supposed to.
Microwaves will also disrupt signals.

Can I hook up a wireless router with only laptops


you need a pc or laptop using a hardwired connection prior to using the router, hence the name router, it routes the hardwired conenction and broadcasts it wirelessly.

Do i have to hardwire my Sony HDTV to my router to get it on my network, there is no mention of hardwiring in the manual


hi Steve
2 things to check. Is there an ethernet socket on the back of the TV? is there any mention of connecting by wireless? Chances are that if it connects by wireless there will be instructions how to do it as it won't be simple.
I think you'll find an ethernet socket on the back and then it will probably just work by plugging it in.

If you are using Windows XP, go to Control Panel > Network Connections. Right click on Local Area Connection and then click Enable. (This is only applicable if the ethernet port is disabled).

Also, you may go to Device Manager (Right Click My Computer > Manage > Device Manager) and then check if the ethernet is disabled or has a question or exclamation mark.

If both dont work, your ethernet controller is broken.

Can't browse my bank web site using Trendnet TEW-432BRP router.


When you are hardwired to the router you should disable the wireless internet access and enable the local area network.You should do the opposite when you are trying to connect to your router wireless.

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.
