Hi and thanks to anyone kind enough to help me. I bought a new motorola sbg6580a. I regret buying it now because of all the different pages of settings. It offers more bandwidth potential and I found the sb6180 finally after I already bought this one. I'm trying to use it as a modem only. I want to disable wireless completely and keep my data and bandwidth secure from people hacking the router part. I'm don't have any idea how to do it. I've looked around and done a lot of google searches. I have napt disabled and wireless set to disabled. There are other settings people say to turn off but I'm not sure and don't know enough about this to know if what they say is right. Most of the threads are for people asking how to disable the modems router so they can use their own routers instead like dlink and linksys routers. The modem router is weak, but I just want to turn mine into a router only that won't compromise my bandwidth or breach my information. I'm hoping somebody familiar with wireless and cable modem routers can help me change a few setting. Thanks again and happy holidays to everyone.
