Hello,
You can enable your router firewall by logging straight into your router, as the necessary software (firmware) is within the router itself.

To login to the router, open a web browser, and type the IP address of the router into the address bar. The default for this router is http://192.168.0.2

You should see a popup box asking for username and password. This are likely to be the defaults: username: admin and password: motorola. Click to login.

If successful, you should now see the router configuration screen.
Click 'Firewall' tab in the left hand screen. From here you should be able to configure the firewall. You can enable it in Policy > Basic.

Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if you need further help.

    Important:: use a wired (ethernet) connection to the router when making these changes.

Is the Motorola SBG900 cable modem gateway a router- that is will it enable file sharing between the computers that share the gateway (one wired, one wireless). If so how is this set up?


you should be able to set up a home network you will have to enable file sharing, if you run through the network setup wizzard in the control pannel it should be fairly straightforward

I have a Surfboard SBG900 router and cannot connect to VPN


The issue you have is not due to enabling WPA. It is due to enabling Firewall protection. Either turnoff firewall or use custom option to enable required ports.

Can't open my NAT


Hi there.. i had that problem too and i just solved it...
heres the thing..
first you go into the router setup page.. which is.. 192.168.100.1
go to the gateway tab
go to port forwarding tab
go to config
thenTemplate --> custom
Name--> whatever
Port start--> 88
Port end-->88
LAN IP address--> check on your xbox on network settings and copy the same ip address.
Enable --> checked
Then click add.
After that.. you will do the same thing but on the port option you will put 3074. add it ..
now your nat should be open. ;)

Downloading Problem with Motorola SBG900 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway


Sounds like your laptop is hit with spyware and or viruses. Try starting it in safe mode (F8) and seeing if you still have this problem. If it works in safe mode go to grisoft.com and download the antimalware free trial. Restart in normal mode and install and run the trial version.
