    I don't know much about wireless internet or networking, so I don't really know how to ask this question but I'll try my best. We have a wireless router from Actiontec and as you surf the internet it records all websites you access. Recently viewed websites are listed on a page (local host or something?) for anyone on the network to see. Does anyone know how to make it so that it does NOT record the sites I visit?

    Actiontec advertises this as a “feature” (you know, so that you can keep an eye on what your kids/husband/dog are doing on the internet). But clearly this is not something we want.

    See here for the full article

    I have copied the instructions below.

    You need to use telnet from the command prompt, and you need to know the adminstrative username and password.

    Open a command prompt box and type telnet 192.168.0.1 to connect to your router.
