Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
1. Log into the router with your browser by entering 192,168.0.1 into the URL bar near the top of the screen.
2. Type admin in the user field
3. Type motorola into the password field.
This will get you into the router setup.
Go to the wireless tab and setup WEP encryption. Write down everything you do, because you'll need ti later if you don't remember it.
Once setup, you'll need to setup any wireless computers that you want to hook to the router.
Here's a link to the router manual. If you go through it page by page, starting at page 22, then you should be OK. Key things to setup are WEP encryption. A lot of the other stuff, you don't have to worry with. And, you can change the login user name and password, which is highly recommended.

under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.

SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows
this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE
Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping
to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.
Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name
is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).
Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.
Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or
cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical
access is usually not the security issue.)

avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors
There are more secure settings available, all the way down
