Question about Internet Computers & Internet
I bought this modem from ebay. I was hoping it didn't have a router in it. I wanted to know how I can get the software to use it just the dsl part of it. I'm sick of finding a few hundred wifi robbers in my modem. I saved the internet call log. I was promised by att and earthlink they would block these people off. So does this modem have a router built in? I don't want a modem with router built in. And I'm also hoping the sb6141 modem doesn't have a router built in either. These people use those cube devices and rasberry pi devices to get into my wifi.i don't like stalkers. I unplug my modem. And they drive off every time. Thanks anybody know if these modems are modems without wifi???????
Great comprehensive answer from Larry as always

first off both those modems are wired only, no wifi there, at all, and only one is connected to you ISP
the better one is ARRIS, mine has all 32 channels enabled and paid for .(and OMG FAST)
next buy a new router, wifi (they are cheaper, due to Economies of scale,))
$27 USD gets you and AC1200 router, then turn off wifi and now you have a wired ONLY router with a working, HARDWARE FIRE WALL ! do not run lacking this firewall ever. (I warned you) grin.
AND ALL HACKING ENDS, WITH WIFI 100% DEAD, THERE CAN BE NO HACKING.
BUT i SAID, the hardware firewall must be there
a business wired only router is 70 to $100 (USD)
a AC1200 router with both channels wifi turned off , costs $27 (amazon or walmart both)
so there are your choices. simple
tell more facts and get better answers
how many PC and smart TVs or TV devices do you have.
I guess no wifi needed, . just Ethernet and 5G?
all routers made have manual
and in those manuals the 2 check boxes to turn wifi IS THERE.

just click disable and save
see NO MORE WIFI on any router made on earth, on YOUR setting page,
ask for help, by posting your router full model number and version off the service tag rear or bottom of all routers made, make ,model and version,
or buy new one is 10x better as it has no EXPLOITS.
wifi is safe if you learn to use WPA and good Pass word (phrase) sure is.
but not old routers most are junk. (exploited max)
learn to be informed on exploits
here is a list of the bad boys not to own,.
or update, as be the case/
routers are BAD BOYs, if old,most are. some are HORRIBLE
$27 is the cure, for sure. kick known bad to the curb, be fast. or like you said flip wifi enable to OFF
sold old routers (nasty) have this check box. allow remote, settings and access to this router, (yes/no
answer NO. and do not use simple logins to the actual routers,
admin,1234. (do not do that)
