i have 2 pc's & xbox360 connected to my router/modem. My question is this: My connection seems to lag quite a bit even if i'm just surfing the net. I have a wireless modem/router and think maybe a neighbor is yoinking my connection or something. Is there a way I can shut the wireless capabilities down or anything?

What you can do is setup encryption on the router. That way only the people with the key can access the wireless.

Does it lag if you connect directly to the modem? or is it a router and modem in one?

what is the make and model of the router?

usually you can check by:

if running winxp - click start > run and type cmd
in the command prompt type ipconfig
the default gateway address is usally your router ip address (e.g. 192.168.0.1)
type that ip address in the web browser, should prompt to log into the router. user name and password could vary depending on the router, but if you dont know try admin for user name and leave password box blank and click OK

let me know if u get there
