Question about Arris Wireless G Broadband Router (wr850g)

Connecting to the wireless router

Hi,
I moved to my new apartment, and bought a new internet connection. I was using Motorola WR850G in my old house. I am now trying to setup the same in my apartment. The ISP provider has given me a static ip for my laptop. But I don't know how to connect to the motorola device and setup the ip, so that I can enable wireless connectivity at home. (I had done this with the help of my friend about 4 years back, and have now forgotten the information and lost my documentation as well.)

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.

Laptop sees the wireless network and connects, but then indicates that there is little or no connectivity. Help


this mostly happens when the router has been configured to block certain devices. take a look at the wifi config, look for IP-filtering or MAC filtering. you should see tables containing letters and numbers. make sure this table is empty

Our internet went down for several hours (it was an area-wide problem with our server). Once the internet came back up, my motorola 850G router will not work. I have reset the router, but the modem light...


(It worked for me for WR850G, when I had a similar issue. However, don't know how your connection is setup.)

1. Switch-off the ISP modem that connects to the router
2. Switch off the wireless router
3. Now switch on the ISP modem
4. Switch on the wireless router

No wireless connection


Go to Parental Control after logging into 192.168.10.1. Then make sure you have allowed the MAC addresses of the wireless clients ( machines). Reboot the router one after making any changes.

Good Luck

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

1) Are you sure you're connecting to YOUR wireless network? From my own house, I can access 5 different wi-fi networks, 3 of them unsecured. I've even logged into two of them, unintentionally.

2) Check all of your cabling connections that they are tight and
secured. This includes the cables from the wall to your modem,
between the router and modem, and from the router
to your PC. Ensure that your LEDs are not lit Red or not at all.

3) Ensure that you are using Ethernet cables and not telephone
cables between the router and PC. Ethernet
cables use a wider RJ-45 style plug using 8 wires where
telephone style plugs use the smaller RJ-11 style plug using 4 to
6 wires.

4) Ensure that your Ethernet adapter is enabled. Check the System
Tray at the bottom right of your display to see an icon that looks
like a monitor. You can click on this to see the status of
your Ethernet adapter. Also in Control Panel > Network and
Dial-Up Connections, you can examine the state of your Ethernet
adapter.

5) Firewalls. Your desktop firewall(s) may be blocking your internet access. Check them.

6) You may not be completely blocked (only web traffic - port 80 - blocked). Go to Start > Run and type CMD. At the DOS prompt, type ping 192.168.1.1 (should be the default IP address of your router). If you get a response, your PC is talking to the router. If you get "timed out", then they are not talking, for some reason. If successful, try pinging an external address, something like ping www.fixya.com, and see what happens.
