I would not expect "configuration knobs" on the router. There should be configuration web pages when you open the routers address in a web browser. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 is the default address, if I remember right. It is in the router manual. But it probably does not have anything to help you with your problem. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
