Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 802.11g/b (motosbg900) Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Internet connection Just about everyother week I lose my wireless internet connection and I have to connent to the ethernet and reset all the passwaods and whatnot. I live in a 92 unit condominium complex. I am beginning to wonder is there is a "hacker" type person whom can disrupt my internet connection with malicious software. I tried to utilize the wep key features and change passwaords regularly. But for now, I just need to get my wireless internet going. I cannot even get it working without passwords or authetication now.

If you are worried that it is a Hacker then do not use WEP. Use WPA and do not use only words use symbols and numbers. But this seems like you have a router that is going bad. I would try resetting it to factory settings by opening internet explorer and typing in the box where you enter web addresses type 192.168.1.200 or 192.168.1 then you will find your router setup page and you will be able to reset your router to the factor settings. Another thing about securing your connection is that you must not use a WEP inscription and your WPA or WPA2 access code must not be only a word it must include other character e.g. #@$%^&*
Good Luck

All the computers should have the same NETWORK NAME or SSID.

Recheck the settings and make an adhoc connection for each of the computers to your router.

You can also get a USB wireless adapter to enable ht NO internet laptop and connect them.

Just keep playing with the NETWORK SETTINGS.

Make sure all are connected to the SAME SSID.

Hope it helped.

God Bless You!

There are several things you can try. First, I would recommend resetting the router by unplugging the power cord than reconnecting. Many times, that solution works. Next, right click on the network connection icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen (normally it looks like two monitor screens). It should bring up a list of choices one of which is connect to internet. When you click on that, it should show all the wireless networks available in your area. Your wireless network should be listed too, show highlight that by left clicking on it, then, at the bottom of that screen, there should be a button that says "connect". Click on that, and you should be able to connect. When you were connected using an ethernet cable, were there any connectivity problems(e.g. losing your internet connection)? If so, you may have to upgrade the firmware to your wireless router. For that you would have to contact the manufacturer's technical support people and they can assist you with downloading the file. Good luck!

Are you connecting to your own wireless router? If yes, have you changed anything in its configuration, or inadvertently reset it? If you're connecting to someone else's router (neighbor, etc.) it could be that they have locked you out. Does the wireless network show as secured? This sounds more like a security issue than hardware or driver.

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

That means that your router is functioning properly on your network, communicating with other devices, but your ISP (Internet service provider) connection is malfunctioning, out of service, or otherwise experiencing a problem. Your router can't connect to the Internet because of a problem somewhere between the router and your ISP, or your ISP and the Internet.

Loses network connection or says low connectivity.


hmmm... need to see if this is from the router end or the problem is your laptop. phone company replaced the router-- did they stick around long enough to see you connect to it with your laptop?

how long has the connection worked properly between the wireless laptop and your basement router?

can you visit a starbucks or whatnot to see if you can surf with your latop (i.e. it's not your laptop wireless card)

can you get a friend to come over to try your router with their wireless laptop?

what if you stay just in teh basement -- does the connection drop at all?

X Box 360 can't connect in hotel room!


I figured it out! I am also in a hotel room with only ethernet...and can connect to the network but not to the internet. When I got onto the internet for the first time on my laptop, there was a hotel internet webpage that came up immediately. You have to click CONNECT for 24hrs; 48; 1 week etc. unfortunately for us, Xbox doesn't have a internet browser like the PS3 does. So we can not click CONNECT when we are attempting to connect on the 360. The only reason why I know this is correct is because my friend brought his PS3 to my hotel room and that hotel connect window popped up and immediately we were playing Modern Warfare 2 with "full bars"...Xbox should really add a download for a browser! Like 360 way more. Sorry guys!
