Reconfigure router I've had a motorola router and modem for few years. I was trying to secure my network and doing so I changed some settings on my computer and things went down the hill from there and ended up doing a complete recovery on my computer. Now the computer does not pick up the network and when I called Toshiba they told me I needed to reconfigure my router. Same problem with other 2 computers in the house, neither one will pick up the signal.How do i reconfigure?

Re: reconfigure router

Changing settings on your computer does not affect your router, but since the other computers cannot pick up the signal, then there is something wrong here.. See if there is a reset button on the Motorola and press it for 30 seconds to see if the router resets to its original configuration. If not, then you need to hardwire your computer to the router and get into the config page. usually, to do this, you just open up a browser and in the address line, type in the Default Gateway Address (usually this is

To find the DG for your LAN:

Start > Run > cmd (ok)

From the Command Shell type:

ipconfig /all > ip.txt
notepad ip.txt

This should open a window with all your IP information in it. you will find a line called Default Gateway.. this is the address (probably 192.168.x.x) that you put in your Browser Window Address Line to access the configuration page of the router..

I need to use my telstra thomson TG782T modem on a different network how do i reconfigure it??

You need to contact your 3rd party service provider for the configuration settings for their network.
If you cannot change the settings on the Thomson modem then maybe the firmware is set to Telstra's network and cannot be changed. In this case you need to use the recommended modem suggested by your 3rd party service provider.

Wireless security

I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

I dont know the key

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

Motorola SBG900 Assign network address to computer

I guess your modem router was already configured well since it worked already previously. It seems that your motorola router is set to broadcast dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled) and your last connected Pc and laptop were configured with static IP. Please check your "network connection" setting and make sure it is set to "Obtain IP automatically"

Reconfigure router

I seriously can't stand those motorola routers specially since they have to reboot themselves after every change.

Unplug the power from the router, hold the reset button in and plug the power back. Keep holding the reset button for 30 seconds. That should restore it back to factory settings. Plug one machine to the router and try to access the admin console. if memory serves me correctly, the user name is admin and password is motorola.

Modem router

I can tell that your network topology is not the most complicated ever.So u ve got 3 terminals,1 desktop pc and 2 laptop.Simple,reset your zyxel(from the button on the back) and reconfigure the Local area interface connection(ip & subnet mask for the zyxel),reconfigure your internet connection,(WAN zyxel interface) in case the zyxel is your Internet gateway too.Third,make sure NAT & Firewall are up and running(usually are by default) Finally,reconfigure the WiFi interface with the correct SSID name & WEP key or whatever security you prefer.Write down the security pass for your wireless and you are done.Good Luck.
