Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)

Motorola SBG900 - network cannot see hardwired computer

I have an SBG900 and it is working perfectly EXCEPT for one thing: I have set up a Windows XP network and the computer that is hard-wired (connected via Ethernet to the one Ethernet port on the back of the SBG900) does not appear in the Windows network I have set up at home. All computers, including wireless and the one wired computer, can connect to the Internet perfectly. But when I set up my home network, the wired computer is not visible; the shared folders do not appear on any computer. All computers are a member of the same workgroup. Any suggestions?

Motorola SBG900 Assign network address to computer


I guess your modem router was already configured well since it worked already previously. It seems that your motorola router is set to broadcast dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled) and your last connected Pc and laptop were configured with static IP. Please check your "network connection" setting and make sure it is set to "Obtain IP automatically"

Home Networking


Is the laptop an xp machine? If so:

In order to access shared files on a Windows XP computer (or any computer running Samba) from a Mac, the Mac will need to "connect" to the Windows XP computer and "mount" the shared files.

Instructions:

Start at the "Go" drop down menu at the top of your screen, then "Connect to server".
If the computer you wish to connect to is listed, just select it from the list.
If the computer is not listed, type into the "Server Address" field 'smb://' followed by the computer name or IP address of the computer to which you want to connect.
Click the "Connect" button in the bottom right corner of the window. See more at the link below:

Can't connect to the internet wirelessly


Well, to avoid confusion, I'd start by doing a factory reset. Insert the straightened end of a paperclip into the reset hole and power up the device to do this. From there, the device should begin broadcasting the default wireless network with the name (SSID) of "Motorola." The DHCP server should also be enabled and if your computer is configured to receive an automatically assigned IP address your wireless network interface should pick up an IP. The security for the "Motorola" network is disabled by default.

Basic troubleshooting from there would be to try to see if you can connect your wireless computer to another wireless network that is know to be working well. Either buy and return another wireless access point or router from a retailer or head to a Starbucks or other establishment that offers free wireless. If the wireless computer is hooking up nicely with the secondary wireless network, you can refocus on the SBG900 as the likely source of the problem.

If after attempting the aforementioned procedures you find that the wireless computer continues to fail to connect to the SBG900 you might have to consider that you have a faulty device. At that point I would consider consulting the manufacturer's documentation.
