    Cousin used his laptop on his visit and want advice

    Relatives visit, one of them kids messed up his laptop looking at porn but off of my wireless router connection.

    I'm not concerned about his laptop but what should I do about my IP router address ??

    Should I ditch my ATT u-verse router or what ?

    Probably nothing. If you want, you may reset the router by sticking the head of a pen into the little round hole in the back.

    Why would you ditch a perfectly good router?

    And to prevent this type activity in the future use something like http://system.opendns.com/ in the router.

    There use to be a small software program where I could type in a like www.yahoo.com or a IP address and it would show where that IP had to go to get to the source.
