SOURCE: How do you reset lost password?

Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip, and insert it into the small "reset" hole in the back of the modem.

This will reset the modem to the "factory" settings.
Then, reconfigure your modem, as if it were "day one" that you got the modem.

Which numbers on the sticker on the back of the modem are the password/passphrase and which numbers are the PIN

Even though it's an Arris, try this:
1. Open a browser window.
2. Type in the IP address for the modem
3. Type in the default Username; admin.
4. Type in the default Password; motorola.

If that doesn't work, try "root" for the username and "motorola" for the password and reset it to factory settings. Then start again with the steps above and change the username and password to whatever you choose. Good luck!

I cannot sign onto my motorola surfboard router site, no user names or passwords work. please help. my other laptop connects to wifi network fiine, but other one keeps asking for pin or security...

Connect to it directly using a LAN cat 5 cable, not wireless.
Log in as admin to the router, and change the wireless password to something new.
Disconnect the cable then try connecting from each laptop by wireless, when it prompts for password enter the new password.

I have a Motorola SURFboard Gateway SBG6580 modem. I want to use the wireless for my DS lite but it says that I need an WEP key, but I don't know how to enable it. Help!

Your wireless is set up with a password. You need to get that password before you can connect any more devices. From a computer that can connect to the internet go to Then type admin for the username and motorola for the password. I believe from there you click Wireless then click Primary Network. You should see your wireless network name and password from there. I'm getting this from the modems manual here:

Open your browser and paste this address in:
That should open the login page. I think the user and password are both admin (you can change both to something more personal or easier for you to remember if you want.) Otherwise, Google "Motorola Surfboard user/password" and you'll get your answer.
Once you're in click on the word "Wireless" in the little banner across the top of the page. When the wireless page opens you should see Control Channel as the next-to-the-last option.
Good Luck!

Trying to get my ps3 connected so i can get online

You need to disable the UPnP function on the Belkin router. Log into the router(, and look under System Settings. If you haven't changed the password on the router, the default password is blank, i.e., no password.
