I was trying to set up password protection for my SBG900. I went to the proper website with Motorola however once I selected WEP it kicked me off my network and will not allow me to reconnect without the password. I have no idea what the password is. I tried resetting the unit to factory default over a dozen times but it still requires a password. I tried connecting with an ethernet cord and I'm unable to connect because it can not find an IP address. What should I try next?

"Wireless Network Setup" For a LAN with one or more wireless clients, enable wireless security on the SBG900.
"Wireless Network Setup" After enabling wireless security on the SBG900, as required on each wireless client: > If you disabled ESSID broadcasting on the SBG900, set the client Network Name (ESSID) identical to the ESSID on the SBG900. > If you enabled WEP on the SBG900, set the client WEP key identical to the WEP key on the SBG900. > If you enabled Allow Only Listed Stations Access, be sure the MAC address for each client is correctly listed on the SBG900.
Use the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page to encrypt your transmitted data. Choose one of:
If all of your wireless clients support WPA encryption, we recommend using WPA instead of WEP because WPA:
• Provides much stronger encryption and is more secure
• Provides authentication to ensure that authorized users only can log in to your WLAN
• Is much easier to configure
• Uses a standard algorithm on all compliant products to generate a key from a textual passphrase
• Will be incorporated into the new IEEE 802.11i wireless networking standard
For new wireless LANs, we recommend purchasing client adapters that support WPA, such as the Motorola
Wireless Notebook Adapter WN825G, Wireless PCI Adapter WPCI810G, and Wireless USB Adapter WU830G.
For more information about the benefits of WPA, see the Wi-Fi Protected Access Web page:

You need to set security to the router, even if you use wep, it is better then an non secured.
Its hard to explain all the details, please read your manual as this will walk you through the process, wep is easy and the more security you have the more detailed.
You can also set your router to only see your mac address, your mac address is the address of the wireless lan that is in your laptop or computer, each one has a specific number, and it is usually a 12 digit number.
Every router is different in the security it has and some only have wep, so it depends on your router what security you can set.
If you don't have the manual just go to the website of your MFG and download it.
If you have more questions or help after reading it please post back.
When you first setup a wireless router you need to connect the wireless router to the computer with a LAN cable. Then you open a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and on the address bar you type the IP configuration address of the wireless router eg. for Netgear and D-Link wireless it is http://192.168.0.1 Enter the default login name and password. You should change the password and you should setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router. The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.
You don't need your disk to do this you need to type http://192.168.0.1 into your web browser. this will access your your modems setup program. your default user name will be "admin" and password will be "motorola" as long as you haven't changed it.. you can read in your manual how to set up your wep key from here on in. if you need to download the manual give be a bell and i will post it on my web page for you.
mac and pc security keys are not interchangable. I suggest not using a a key for both units. You can reset the router by unplugging it for 1 minute. or you gain access to the router through the web address. 192.168.1.1 Type this into the address bar to gain access to the router.
If you set a WEP security connection, of course you will be kicked out of your connection.
You have to re configure your laptop to gain access to your WiFi, inserting the new password you set the WEP with...
Hope this helps
Try admin for the username and motorola for the password. The default SSID is Motorola. Here is the pdf with all of this info.
