Password for setup program lost /WEP-key??

Hey guys, I got a Motorola SBG900E SURFboard. The problem is that I lost the password to get to the setup program.But I have to get there to find out my WEP-key to use the WLAN with another laptop. Is the only possiblity to find out the WEP-Key to run the setup program of the SBG900 or is there any other way?Please help me, cause I'm going nuts. Installing the modem once again doesn't solve the problem....

    Some time ago, a friend put password protection on my Motorola SBG wireless router. He didn't write it down and forgot it. When friends come over to visit, I want them to have internet access. I saw the reset advice you gave, connected the modem to the laptop via usb, and hit the reset button (I think!) I got the window up, type in "admin" and "motorola" and go nowhere. What am I doing wrong?!

If by set-up program you mean 192.168.0.1, then the default password is "motorola" and username is "admin" from there you should be able to see everything you need. If you changed it from the defaults, then you might have to reset the SBG900 to factory defaults by pushing and holding the small reset button on the SBG900.

I never had to run any "setup program" to get mine working, just plug and play. If you did need to install additional software then you might have problems that I am unaware of. Hope I was able to help.

I have a Motorola SURFboard Gateway SBG6580 modem. I want to use the wireless for my DS lite but it says that I need an WEP key, but I don't know how to enable it. Help!


Your wireless is set up with a password. You need to get that password before you can connect any more devices. From a computer that can connect to the internet go to 192.168.0.1. Then type admin for the username and motorola for the password. I believe from there you click Wireless then click Primary Network. You should see your wireless network name and password from there. I'm getting this from the modems manual here: http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf

We have a SBG900E but have lost the password. If we hold the reset button will it go back to factory settings allowing us to rename and repassword?


Is that a Motorola router? Usually when you press the reset button on the router everything does go back to factory settings... Another question, what password did you loose the wep password or the password to access the routers settings? Let me know if this solved the problem and good luck..

Hi, I have a new Moto SurfBoard 5101U and I just set it up. But when I try to connect to it wirelessly, it asks for password? Where can I find one? thanks.


By accessing to the configuration page of the cable modem, you should have a wireless settings section. You will find the password there. It will either be a Wep Key or a WPA password.
