Question about Arris SURFboard SB5120 Modem
Go here: http://www.answersthatwork.com/Download_Area/ATW_Library/Networking/Network__4-List_of_default_Router_Admin_Passwords_and_IP_addresses.pdf . On that list you can find your default router IP, type this IP into your web browser to access your router, use your login (one you made, or the default) to access the router, from there go to your wireless settings and ensure that you have a password set. If the router does not have wireless than there will be no way for people to access it without being connected directly to it, although you can change your router password to prevent kids or other houseguests from modifying router settings. Hope this helps

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.
