    You should check the documentation for your modem/router. If it is a router at all. If you are not sharing your internet connection and the modem box doesn't have several local ports on it then it is most likely just a bridge and not a router meaning you can't configure anything.

    Routers are made with many configuration options. The most common is a web page accessible at the routers local IP address but you may have to use telnet or a serial console if the router isn't that avanced.
