Motorola SBG900 settings set back to default settings

My Motorola SBG900 modem settings have just been set back to its default (no security settings) without any configuration changes on my side. My original setup had WEP security mode with MAC access control list configured. A reboot of all attached devices, including the modem itself did not change anything. Anyone experienced this issue and know how this could of happened ?

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.

How do I reset the sbg900 to factory user name and password


This pdf is the manual for your modem:
http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SBG900/downloads/SBG900_User_Guide.pdf

Page 7 on the document contains a picture of your modem's back side. You'll notice a recessed button that will RESET the modem back to the default values, which include username and password. Press this for at least 5 seconds.

How can i find my password for my motorola SBG900 modem


Passcode is on the label on the bottom of the modem. To configure security, default code is "admin" and password is "motorola". If you are trying to log onto the wireless signal, that is the WPA-PSK code also found on the label. There are way too many codes on this router/modem - but it works well once you have it running!

The security code a computer or device needs is the pre-set WPA-PSK code found on the labels that came with the router/Modem. For some reason this particular device comes with security enabled on the wireless newtwork.

I cant reset my Motorola SBG900!


Ok in the back of this unit or bottom there is a reset button or hole that you need a pin needle to access. Press it in for 15sec and let it reboot. Once it reboots, open a web page and type in 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.0.1 This will bring up a log in page. The login is admin and the password is motorola.

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
