Reset password


The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

I installed a motorola wr850g and messed up. I cann't reach it using 192.168.10.1 and I can't remember the network authentication information. I reset the router using pushing the reset for 30...


Hi there,
This thread might help you:
http://marasingha.blogspot.com/2006/07/how-to-log-in-to-your-motorola-wr850g.html
If the reset button doesn't work and you can't reach the Router GUI through the address it has given then it could be a faulty router.
The number is listed on that thread and I do think you have the same problem.
This other link is for the router's manual incase you need it: http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/WR850g/downloads/WR850G_6.1.4_Rel_Notes.pdf
hope this helps!

LOST MY INSTALATION DISK


Go to this URL:
http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/support/default.asp?supportSection=DiscontinuedProducts
Right near the bottom of the page is the WR850G documents, drivers, etc. (might be an idea to let the page load, and then do a CTRL+F to get your find box, and type in 850... there are a couple of 850's on that page, the 850GP and the 850G, so be careful which one you look at :)

Hope that helps!

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.

I have a wr850g router which has worked well for 3 years. I tried to configure the network to have a security access code. Partway thru the process I lost access to the router and cannot now reenter...


If you lost your password, you need to reset your router to the factory default and configure it from scratch.

Pull out your router manual or download the PDF file from this (http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/WR850g/downloads/WR850G_userguide.pdf). Follow the instructions from it to:
  1. find out your logon details from your service provider
  2. reset your router to factory default
  3. use a network cable to connect the router to a computer to re-configure the router

Is there any way to reset the password on a wr850g. its been in a box forever and i forgot the setup pass word, and dont have the software...


Yes. You simply press and hold the button on the back for 30 seconds. The button might be indented, this is because it is a reset button and shouldn't be pushed in all the time.

This will reset the password to factory settings.

Thanks,

Motorola WR850G wireless router - what is a security key or pass phrase that I am being asked to provide? Verizon has no clue. Thank you. Russ


Check this manual and look at the installation part. It will tell you how to reach to your Wireless Security page. That is where you would find your key or pass phrase.
