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.

How do you unlock the secured wireless signal when you were not given the code


first you need to connect a cable between a PC and your router. Next she can need to log into the router using a browser. The routers should ask you for a login and password. the default password for your router is motorola. The user ID is admin. I have attached a link to the manual for your router. Page 71 of the manual will explain how to set up your wireless password/passphrase. That is the security code being asked for. Use the same passphrase with your PC when asked.

The link is: http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SBG900/downloads/SBG900_User_Guide.pdf

If this sounds your problem please leave feedback otherwise send me more information about what you tried in how worked out.

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.

We just tried to secure our wireless motorola sbg900 and now the wireless portion doesn't work. We have to use an ethernet cable. How do we reverse this and still make it secure?


To change any wireless settings on the router, you will need to make wired connections to the router.
If you change the wireless settings on the wireless laptop it will drop the connection because you are changing a wireless setting.

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
