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

    The problem with the sgb900 is that the instructions tell you to set to wep or aes before you can insert the wep key. Yes really, it does not allow insertion of the wep key prior to activation of the wep or aes, hence it locks you out and there is no way to determine what the key ought to be.

    Clearly designed by a programmer, sigh!

    It may be that there is a config tool as that is mentioned in the manual, and or the settings will activate if you use I.E (I am in this instance workign from a mac using firefox and the settings are not becoming active before locking me out).

How do i secure it


You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Motorola SBG900 settings set back to default settings


This exact problem just happened to me today. I called Motorola & they said this sometimes happens as a result of a power surge (can be on the cable or power lines). All settings were lost & I had to redo the entire set-up from scratch.

I cant find my wep key for my motorola sbg900 and i need it to get online for my ps3. how do i find it?


Usually to do this, you need to connect to the router with a computer and an ethernet cable.

Start the browser and enter the following:

http://192.168.100.1 or http://192.168.0.1

This should bring you to a configuration screen of the router. Next, go to the configuration tab and head out for the wireless configuration and then the security configuration. In there you should find the location where the WEP keys are stored.

if you can't get connected, yu can look for more help in the manual of the device.

You can download it here:

Unable to setup wireless print server with wireless router


The issue was the wireless print server not properly connecting to my home network and thus being unable to see my modem/network. This was because my linksys wireless print server generates its wep key with a different algorithm than the Motorola surfboard SBG900, this also explains why when I was using my old linksys wireless g router, things worked without any issue (same wep key algorithm). Once I figured out how to manually configure the print servers wireless settings and manually enter the wep security settings I was able to connect to my network and the configuration found the print server and I was able to finish setup.

Password for setup program lost /WEP-key??


If by set-up program you mean 192.168.0.1, then the default password is "motorola" and username is "admin" from there you should be able to see everything you need. If you changed it from the defaults, then you might have to reset the SBG900 to factory defaults by pushing and holding the small reset button on the SBG900.

I never had to run any "setup program" to get mine working, just plug and play. If you did need to install additional software then you might have problems that I am unaware of. Hope I was able to help.

Wireless Doesn't Work - No light.


If someone else setup the router for you they may have turned off the wireless. If you can connect via ethernet use the web based configuration utility to turn it back on.

The intial setup is as follows in the manual:

To provide an initial wireless connection to your network and the Internet:
1 Connect the SBG900 to the cable TV system as described in Section A.
2 On each wireless client computer, install the wireless adapter hardware and
driver software according to the manufacturer's instructions.
3 On each wireless client computer, set up a wireless adapter profile to
“connect” the client to the SBG900. The procedure depends on your
wireless adapter and computer operating system.
In your initial profile, use the SBG900 default wireless Network Name
(ESSID) motorola (case-sensitive).
Your computers are connected but not secure.
The default SBG900 settings provide no wireless security. After
your wireless LAN is operational, be sure to enable security as
described in “Setting Up the Wireless LAN” in the SBG900
User Guide
.
