Networking with Motorola SBG 900 Gateway

Hi I have a Motorola SBG 900 Gateway in my Bigpond wifi cable connection. I have six computers to connect. Do I need a router to do this? Originally I had only 3 computers: two desktops and a laptop, but now I have 3 desktops and 3 laptops. I can generate the WEP number for the the four computers. And the computer attached to the ethernet connection seems to disable the rest of the computers. Do you think the router with 6 ethernet slots will help, and do away with the network cards (wireless and PC based, and USB wireless adaptor)? Someone suggested a router, but I dont want to spend unnecessarily. I'd appreciate your help.

With my knowledge in theory of networking I have never heard of that inless there is something else working at 2.4Ghz on the computer that is disabling the wireless inless it is a hub or a dumb device that requires little or no power. I recommend linksys vs cisco. contact me at singleman190@yahoo.com for advice from someone studying mcse and ccnp

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.

On the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page check whether the WPA Encryption type is TKIP.

If all of your wireless clients support AES, change the WPA Encryption to AES. This may make a difference for you.

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.

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

You can't use a T connector for a network (to my knowledge there is no such thing for an ethernet cable). All computers must connect directly to the router, whether they connect wirelessly or not.

Your other option is you can purchase a network hub/switch, e.g. one of these:

You plug this it into your router. Then you can plug usually up to four computer into it, and they'll all be on the network.

SBG 900 SECURITY


you probably need to access the web management function for this modem. Using a PC connected to the modem, open a web browser and type into the address bar the address of the router/modem/gateway. This is usually 192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1 or 10.1.1.1. If you cannot find this information, find the status of your ethernet connection on your computer (where it tells you you computer's IP and time connected etc). Here you will find a number labeled "Gateway" this is the number you want to type into your web browser.  Once you get this correct you will be prompted for a username and password (by default it will be admin, admin) then you should have access to the configuration of the modem.
Write back if you're unsure of any steps
