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.

Do you get an error that says something such as "Unable to validate identity"? You can definitely fix this issue by logging into the modem and changing the security to WEP. If not WEP you can try no security. I know that no security will work but its trial and error to find out which security type will work with the Dell wireless.
The LAN lights will only turn on once you have an Ethernet cable connected to it and the other end of the cable is connected to a working computer.
If you already have a computer connected to the Ethernet port of the router via an Ethernet cable and the lights are still off. Check if the computer you have connected recognizes a network via LAN.
If the lights on the router are still off and the computer doesn't recognize a network then that means that the port for the ethernet of your Router is bad and sadly there's no way of getting that fixed but to have the router replaced.
Otherwise if the lights are off and the computer recognizes the Network and lets you connect to the internet or other computers on the same network then its just the LED of the LAN light that's broken and I think you can live with that.
Hope this helps!
1 On a computer wired to the SBG900 USB or Ethernet port, open your web browser (for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer) 2 Type http//:192.168.100.1 and press ENTER to display the login window: 3 In the User ID field, type admin (case sensitive) and press TAB. 4 In the Password field, type motorola (case sensitive) and click Log In to display the SBG900 Setup Program main window: As soon as your network is operational, run the SBG900 Setup Program to:
"Wireless Network Setup" For a LAN with one or more wireless clients, enable wireless security on the SBG900.
"Wireless Network Setup" After enabling wireless security on the SBG900, as required on each wireless client: > If you disabled ESSID broadcasting on the SBG900, set the client Network Name (ESSID) identical to the ESSID on the SBG900. > If you enabled WEP on the SBG900, set the client WEP key identical to the WEP key on the SBG900. > If you enabled Allow Only Listed Stations Access, be sure the MAC address for each client is correctly listed on the SBG900.
Dont enter the Router IP as WWW.192.168.0.1, Instead just type 192.168.0.1 and it should let you access the Router EWS Page. you are trying to access Internal network ( which we can call local network or LAN ) so do not use WWW.
In the Address bar of Internet Explorer, just type the IP Address.
The only thing that you need to setup on your Linksys for it to work with cable is to make sure that DHCP is enabled on the router. You will need to plug your router into the modem via the ethernet cable and then plug your neighbors pc into a link port on the router (the cable modem plugs into the internet port) You will also need to follow the reboot procedure. Power everything off.
1: Turn on the surfboard and wait about 1 minute for the surfboard to make a connection with your ISP (the link light should come on).
2:Turn on your router and wait for your router to sync up with the surfboard .
3: Turn on your computer.
Whenever you plug anything into a cable modem, you must recycle power to the modem. It "remembers" the last device that was plugged into it, so it's memory needs to be cleared.
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
