How do I access my Router OR Cable Modem admin configuration panel ?

Cable Modem: 192.168.100.1
Username : root
Password : root (this is the default and can be changed under the TOOLS menu on the right-hand side)



Wireless Router:

192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 ( also www.mittip.com)

Username : admin
Password : admin OR 1234 ( (this is the default and can be changed)



If this fails consult http://www.routerpasswords.com/ for your specific 3rd party router model

Which numbers on the sticker on the back of the modem are the password/passphrase and which numbers are the PIN


Even though it's an Arris, try this:
1. Open a browser window.
2. Type in the IP address for the modem 192.168.0.1.
3. Type in the default Username; admin.
4. Type in the default Password; motorola.

If that doesn't work, try "root" for the username and "motorola" for the password and reset it to factory settings. Then start again with the steps above and change the username and password to whatever you choose. Good luck!

I have a SBG6580. I am trying to enter the security key but cannot find it on the back of the router...please help


I shall have to assume you in a 'Factory Reset' situation, where you have not signed into the modem, and changed username/password defaults, (new unit, fresh out of the box).
Do not connect to the cable company yet. First, secure the modem.....
From the User Manual, page 9..... You do have a User Manual?
1. Open a browser window, after connecting your computer.

Use a 'wired' connection. Never change security settings, using Wi-Fi connection.....

2. Type in the IP address for the modem 192.168.0.1 in the URL address. That should take you to the modem's password change window.
3. Type in the default Username: admin.
4. Type in the default Password: motorola.
5. Type in your new username in the Password Change Username field.
6. Type in your new password in the New Password field.
7. Re-enter your new password
8. Re-type your new username in the Current Username Password field.
9. Click Apply.
10. Connect the modem to the cable company. You should shortly be able to go online, after the modem has synchronized to the cable company. That usually takes about a minute.

Your question asks for the 'security key'. That generally refers to the Wi-Fi settings. If that is the case, go to the 192.168.0.1 address, sign-in, and click on Wireless. Follow the obvious directions.... Or, post here again....

how do I change the "Pass code" on my wireless Motorola surfboard modem ???


If you mean the wireless pass code or Passphrase you need to log onto your modems web page which normally sits at IP address: 192.168.100.1. In the wireless section there is the pass code update field.

I just received a new modem from my cable company and now my router doesn't work. I tried resetting it and it still doesn't work. What do I do next


Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543
