If you have BT firmware and dont set a password, then you were always at risk anyway (and was in good company until half an hour ago - I've set a password now and changing router IP )

Solution. Change your router IP address (Make sure its not in the DHCP range)

Go here

or here

http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J08&NEXTPAGE=J09

and change the Router Address.
If you have DHCP enabled make sure that the range of addresses doesn't include
your new router address.

Thanks Ydrol.
It may also be worth adding the following to the hosts file.
AFAIK this will block all ways in to the router other than by it's IP.
127.0.0.1 home
127.0.0.1 2wire.gateway.net
127.0.0.1 gateway
127.0.0.1 homeportal

Have you notice that BT's upgrade server for this router is no longer accessible, or is it just my router?

Good call. Forgot the bit about adding those domains to the host file!
Shame you cant put them in the Routers DNS Resolve table.
(Although you could add them to your own local DNS server)

Also I assume you have changed your routers IP too.

Hi there. Yes! I have changed the routers ip addres to some random number abover 100, and I have DHCP disabled. One thing that I am not sure about, is that I have cleared my dns cache, but when I do an ipconfig /all comand my old default dns address is still listed(192.168.1.254) Is this normal?

I wouldn't disable DHCP unless you dont mind setting up a static address for anything that connects to your network.

If you want to keep it disabled you must edit the connection properties and hardcode your
address , gateway , dns servers etc. on every device that will connect to your network.

Otherwise re-enable DHCP, as before, and just change the range so that you new router's IP is not in that range. Most people can get away with a range of 30 ips. or less. Even me, and I've got 2 media streamers, printers and laptops with multiple interfaces all clamouring for IPs.
