SOURCE: The PC/ACTIVITY my Motorola modem isn't on...

if all of the other lights on the modem are lit, except pc activity, that means the modem isnt communicating with the computer. 3 things can cause this - modem could be bad, ethernet cord could be bad, or the NIC card(the card in the cpu that houses the ethernet port) is bad. Most of the time its the ethernet cord or the NIC card in my experience. Dont fret, both of those are relatively cheap fixes.

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

In need of a user manual for SBG6580 wireless router


The User Manuals for many of the Motorola modems and gateways are available from Motorola on their support site: http://www.motorola.com/Support/US-EN/Consumer-Support/Cable-Modems-and-Gateways . Select your model. On the next page, use the drop down menu to select User Manual in the Select A Topic drop-down menu. Then click Search. The direct link to the manual for the SBG6580 is http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/US-EN/Home-and-Office/Cable-Modems-and-Gateways/SBG6580-SURFboard-Wireless-Cable-Modem-Gateway/Documents/Static-Files/SURFboard_SBG6580_UserGuide.pdf . Note you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file.

I hope this helps.

How do I setup to use the dual band feature on the motorola surfboard gateway SBG6580? We want to set it up to use both for different applications. Thanks


Contact your Internet Service Provider. Since you will be connecting your modem to their network, you need to follow their setup instructions, to ensure that it functions correctly.

I'm getting good internet signals to the modem, but am unable to connect to the computer. Any idea why?


How are you connected? USB or Ethernet from the Modem to the computer? Do you have other internet devices on your network? Vonage (Internet Phone Box), Another computer, Gaming console.

If you have 1 device connected - then reset your modem by removing the power cord for 10 seconds.
Replug your power after 10 seconds. Then check and see if your computer has a connection.

If you have many (2 or more devices) on this network then get a Router. and Newegg.com
You can connect as many devices to a router, but the modem will only be one..

These are the most simplest possible solutions. Otherwise contact Motorola. Your Internet service provider could check your modem for signal and communication problems.

Thank you for your fixya.com visit..

How do I find the key for my motorola router and I want to add a wireless printer


If You are connected to the internet using the same motorola router then simply first take out the default gateway of your PC ( type ipconfig /all in cmd). put the default gateway in the adress bar of the the internet explorer or whatever the browser u are using that shoud give access to your motorola router screen and from their u can teh get the WEP key.

Dynamode Internal Fax Modem 56K


i had same problem trying to receive faxes until i changed phone connections.

according to a motorola manual (link below) this has something to do with being connected to a "proper analog phone line".

i had the phone line running from wall to a newer gateway (maybe 8 months) dec 07 to a maybe 2 year old compaq. kept getting that loop current error on the compaq when trying to receive a fax until i elimated the gateway connection and plugged the wall right into the compaq.

here's a link that might help: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/12655/ENG/Motorola.htm

see section 6, troubleshooting. hope this helps...
