Re: Wirelees lost

If the wireles led is turned OFF, either the wireless is turned OFF in the router's settings or the wireless portion is not working anymore. You may contact contact motorolla for this or your ISP (if the ISP has provided the router) good luck

Reset password

The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

How do i find my security key for motorola wireless

The wireless security key is the encryption key that is set in the wireless router's configuration.
You need to connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open the Internet browser and enter the wireless router's configuration URL, then the default login and the password, provided the login and password has not been changed. The configuration URL, the login and password is in the Motorola router's documentation.
If you have lost the documentation then go to the Motorola's WEB site to download the WR850g wireless router documentation.

Motorola WR850G wireless router - what is a security key or pass phrase that I am being asked to provide? Verizon has no clue. Thank you. Russ

Check this manual and look at the installation part. It will tell you how to reach to your Wireless Security page. That is where you would find your key or pass phrase.

I need to get rid of the password protection on my wireless route

Usually there is a little button that you have to use a paper clip to get at that will nuke all the settings and take it back to Default Settings... Just to let you know there are setups now that can easily receive a wifi signal over 2-10 miles and the furthest recorded wifi connection was over 125 miles so you might want to keep those security settings...

Can't access WR80G. Sniffers detect it ESSID, signal, etc. Leds green. bt doesn't comunicate.

if you have set it to dhcp on wan only then your local pcs will not be issued an IP address unless dhcp over lan is enable you could try setting a static ip on your local pc but it has to be in the same range as your router, your routers default IP address is so set your pcs ip to and of course try talking to your router via the ethernet cable not just wireless. Link to Manual....
