Motorola SBG900 WEP password problem - MAC OS X

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?

  1. Try the ethernet cable, but also configure it manually by setting the gateway as 192.168.0.1 and the IP to 192.168.0.2
  2. Then enter normally and reconfigure it.
Optionally, try holding the reset button for 20s and access through wireless if you want.

How do i put a password on my wireless motorola router?


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:
http://www.wifialliance.org/OpenSection/protected_access.asp.
Configure on the SBG900 Required On Each Wireless Client
If all of your wireless clients support Wi-Fi
Protected Access (WPA), we recommend
Configuring WPA on the SBG900
If you use a local pre-shared key (WPA-PSK) passphrase, you
must configure the identical passphrase to the SBG900 on each
wireless client. Home and small-office settings typically use a
local passphrase.
Configuring a RADIUS server requires specialized knowledge
that is beyond the scope of this guide. For more information,
contact your network administrator.
Otherwise, perform Configuring WEP on the
SBG900
You must configure the identical WEP key to the SBG900 on each
wireless client.

How do I secure my sbg900 from outside users


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.

I need to secure my wireless router


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.

Cannot connect 2 computers to Motorola SBG900 wireless cablemodem


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.
