Re: Need to change the security of my SBG 900 wireless...
Plug your router in with an ethernet connection and type 192.168.100.1 into your browser address bar. This should load the modem login screen. Unless you have changed the username / password they are admin / motorola. From here you can click on wireless and configure the SSID and security setup.

If you got to the router's interface by typing 192.168.0.1 and it requested the userid and password. If the password you enter did not let you in, then the password is wrong. Maybe someone changed the default userid and password to something else.
You can always press the reset button on the router to set it back to Factory Settings. Then the default userid and password will work, but you will have to set the wireless back up and configure the basic settings (if you have a userid and password that the phone company uses as the network userid and password. This is not your email address userid and password).
You mention "the WEP security code of my internet provider, and from this either you mean the WEB of your Router that you provided that the other devices use, or you mean something like the user name and password that you use to log into the ROUTER to set the settings for it. I'd try to help; but, it's not clear what you are really having an issue with. You should be able to check any device that uses that router and get the information needed. But, mostly devices just need to have you put in the password, in this case the same WEP used on other devices, as long as you are using the same protocol in the new device this should work.
The other issue you have is that you list the model of a Netgear Router: WNDR3400100NAS but you call it a USB, which sounds more like a NIC (network interface card). So, there's confusion over what is trying to connect to what. Are you trying to connect a device, or another router to the first router wirelessly. And that's another problem altogether. So I see three issues with your description, could you be a little more succinct?
hardwire to your router and see if you can that way. if so log into your router (internet explorer in the address bar type in 192.168.1.1 Username: linksys and Password:admin (unless someone changed the defaults) then go to Wireless Settings tab, then cange the channel. THen go to Wireless Security tab and reset the "WPA password"
you will need to check the wireless settings of your router. Is there any computer online using the router. If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You want to secure the wireless network. Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable. Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page. Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured Click Here for step by step instructions
There's another option to configure the security or encryption using your SBG 900
Connect your computer to one of the LAN ports Access the configuration of the modem (example 192.168.254.1) The if you got the configuration page open find the wireless settings and configure the WPA or WEP security using your modem.
No, you don't need a router... that gateway supports up to 253 devices on your private network segment. That being said, you only have one ethernet port, so if your desktops have LAN cards rather than wireless, you'll need a hub to split off enough ports. If you add a router, it'll give you a whole new level of complexity. A gateway is a router/modem combo. It converts the Cable Internet signal from your ISP to ethernet and isolates all of the computers behind it into your own private network. A hub is basically an ethernet splitter... it won't isolate a new network segment, it'll just add more ports. Get a hub, they are cheaper and won't add a new level of complexity.
