Setup your IP addresses correctly by checking available IP addies in router.

You will have to know your router addie and your available wireless addies (in router). For this you need to enter router configuration (read manual).

Open network properties, tcp/ip properties, check "use following ip addie and enter something like 192.168.1.5 depending on what your router is setup as available.

Enter same subnet as your router.

Enter DNS server addies from you ISP.

I want to plug in another wireless router into my surfboard modem and have the wireless router work as well as the surfboard. Is there a way to do this successfully?


Yes this is possiable. First you need to unplug the power to the Motorola and the new router. Second connect the ethernet cable from the Motorola to the internet port on your second router. This port may be colored in yellow, marked as modem, or the ethernet port by its self. Third connect a ethernet cable from the new router to a desktop or laptop this is only to configure the new router. Next power on the Motorola and wait for the online light to become solid. Then plug in the power to the new router. Give the router about two minutes to obtain ip address from the motorola then try to get on the internet with the pc connected with the ethernet cable. Now you can run the new router setup cd on the wired pc to setup router. Once completed remove ethernet cable to the pc and connect to either network you have and you are good to go. Any questions just ask.

We just tried to secure our wireless motorola sbg900 and now the wireless portion doesn't work. We have to use an ethernet cable. How do we reverse this and still make it secure?


To change any wireless settings on the router, you will need to make wired connections to the router.
If you change the wireless settings on the wireless laptop it will drop the connection because you are changing a wireless setting.

Sbg900 wireless connectivety


I had that long time ago. Now I do not broadcast ESSID and changed the channel to 11 (I also use Vonage and when the call was placed the wifi was dropped. No longer).
Changing the MTU to 1452 (on the gateway) helps with the connection. Just to make sure I assigned the first IP address a bit away from the starting point, .10 so that somebody around having the same would not confuse my settings.

Can I use my router just as a Wireless router with a DSL .


i doubt it will work. most times the cable companies give you a modem/router all in one box. the problem is there in no inbound connection to recieve an internet signal other than the cable cord connection. with the dsl modem you will need a seperate router. they cost around $40-50 on avg

I cant find my wep key for my motorola sbg900 and i need it to get online for my ps3. how do i find it?


Usually to do this, you need to connect to the router with a computer and an ethernet cable.

Start the browser and enter the following:

http://192.168.100.1 or http://192.168.0.1

This should bring you to a configuration screen of the router. Next, go to the configuration tab and head out for the wireless configuration and then the security configuration. In there you should find the location where the WEP keys are stored.

if you can't get connected, yu can look for more help in the manual of the device.

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
.
