Reset password


The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

Hi there,
This thread might help you:
http://marasingha.blogspot.com/2006/07/how-to-log-in-to-your-motorola-wr850g.html
If the reset button doesn't work and you can't reach the Router GUI through the address it has given then it could be a faulty router.
The number is listed on that thread and I do think you have the same problem.
This other link is for the router's manual incase you need it: http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/WR850g/downloads/WR850G_6.1.4_Rel_Notes.pdf
hope this helps!

I have a Motorola WR850G router which works just fine for broadband internet access for our laptop and our desktop. We are trying to connect xBox Live and we are getting an error message that Maximum...


Starting on page 3-3 of the WR850G user manual, there is a setting for "PPP MTU".
Whether or not this will change the overall MTU of the router is not clear. Apparently the default setting is "0", which I would guess is automatic. I would try changing the setting to 1500 and work your way down from there until xbox live is hopefully satisfied.
Good luck...

Laptop sees the wireless network and connects, but then indicates that there is little or no connectivity. Help


this mostly happens when the router has been configured to block certain devices. take a look at the wifi config, look for IP-filtering or MAC filtering. you should see tables containing letters and numbers. make sure this table is empty

I need to get rid of the password protection on my wireless route


Usually there is a little button that you have to use a paper clip to get at that will nuke all the settings and take it back to Default Settings... Just to let you know there are setups now that can easily receive a wifi signal over 2-10 miles and the furthest recorded wifi connection was over 125 miles so you might want to keep those security settings...

Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610


If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

Wirelees lost


If the wireles led is turned OFF, either the wireless is turned OFF in the router's settings or the wireless portion is not working anymore. You may contact contact motorolla for this or your ISP (if the ISP has provided the router) good luck
