    I forgot my password and login and motorola couldn't tell me how to reset modem. Save this Solution #1 and after a few tries of holding the reset in for 20-30 seconds it worked.

I had this problem just last night. I held down the reset button for 20-30 seconds. It worked when after pressing teh button the LEDs stayed on and then after the 20-30 seconds they started to blink indicating the reset. If they do not start reset while holding down the reset, let go and the modem should reset itself. It took me a few times to get this right since teh reset button is rather sensitive and a momentary depression/release will resutl ina reset of the modem but not to default password. I found out I was inadvertantly doing this momentary reset due to teh sensitivity of the switch.

Anyway, next make sure you type "admin" and "motorola" in all lower case. I was using Admin and Motorola - no good.

Couple of things you can do....
In the User ID field, type admin (case sensitive) and press TAB. In the Password field, type motorola (case sensitive) and click Log In to display the SBG900 Setup Program main window
If you are still having problems, try the following:
  1. Press the reset button on the rear panel. Resetting may take 5 to 30 minutes
  2. Try the login again, if that fail try from a different browser.

How do you unlock the secured wireless signal when you were not given the code


first you need to connect a cable between a PC and your router. Next she can need to log into the router using a browser. The routers should ask you for a login and password. the default password for your router is motorola. The user ID is admin. I have attached a link to the manual for your router. Page 71 of the manual will explain how to set up your wireless password/passphrase. That is the security code being asked for. Use the same passphrase with your PC when asked.

The link is: http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SBG900/downloads/SBG900_User_Guide.pdf

If this sounds your problem please leave feedback otherwise send me more information about what you tried in how worked out.

I cant reset my Motorola SBG900!


Ok in the back of this unit or bottom there is a reset button or hole that you need a pin needle to access. Press it in for 15sec and let it reboot. Once it reboots, open a web page and type in 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.0.1 This will bring up a log in page. The login is admin and the password is motorola.

Wireless router


1. Log into the router with your browser by entering 192,168.0.1 into the URL bar near the top of the screen.
2. Type admin in the user field
3. Type motorola into the password field.

This will get you into the router setup.

Go to the wireless tab and setup WEP encryption. Write down everything you do, because you'll need ti later if you don't remember it.

Once setup, you'll need to setup any wireless computers that you want to hook to the router.

Here's a link to the router manual. If you go through it page by page, starting at page 22, then you should be OK. Key things to setup are WEP encryption. A lot of the other stuff, you don't have to worry with. And, you can change the login user name and password, which is highly recommended.
