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.

How do i open my NAT w/ my xbox 360 with this router?


You can either disable your NAT (not recommended) or you can port forward. Here is a link that describes the port forward process.

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.

Wireless Doesn't Work - No light.


If someone else setup the router for you they may have turned off the wireless. If you can connect via ethernet use the web based configuration utility to turn it back on.

The intial setup is as follows in the manual:

To provide an initial wireless connection to your network and the Internet:
1 Connect the SBG900 to the cable TV system as described in Section A.
2 On each wireless client computer, install the wireless adapter hardware and
driver software according to the manufacturer's instructions.
3 On each wireless client computer, set up a wireless adapter profile to
“connect” the client to the SBG900. The procedure depends on your
wireless adapter and computer operating system.
In your initial profile, use the SBG900 default wireless Network Name
(ESSID) motorola (case-sensitive).
Your computers are connected but not secure.
The default SBG900 settings provide no wireless security. After
your wireless LAN is operational, be sure to enable security as
described in “Setting Up the Wireless LAN” in the SBG900
User Guide

Need Firewall


For what reasons do you want to install a firewall on the wireless network? There may be valid one's I just need to understand what you want to achieve.

Here is another option to complete a different task that traditional firewalling will not stop.

If it is to secure the network from use by others outside those intended then there are other means that should be considered. The SBG900 supports WEP encryption -- where a password (or passphrase) is entered into the router and into each wireless adapter (assuming the wireless adapters also support WEP) of machines to connect to the router keeping those machines without the password off the network.

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.
