You probably need to access the web management function for this modem. Using a PC connected to the modem, open a web browser and type into the address bar the address of the router/modem/gateway. This is usually or or If you cannot find this information, find the status of your ethernet connection on your computer (where it tells you you computer's IP and time connected etc). Here you will find a number labeled "Gateway" this is the number you want to type into your web browser.  Once you get this correct you will be prompted for a username and password (by default it will be admin, admin) then you should have access to the configuration of the modem.

I no longer have the install software, how can I set up wep for my unsecured router?

You dont need the Software to do this - you can setup routers manually - by logging into them - to start lets find the correct online manual - this is the start of getting an online manual Page 28 - shows how to setup the wireless security also shows details on page 13 how to login to the router - using in an internet explorer address bar - now these are quite OLD settings - so they may still be valid or a firmware update may have changed - to check - on the PC do the following start>run {vista/7 search box}>CMD>ipconfig --- you should see a number next to default gateway if its then thats the same as the manual - but it may start 192.168.x.x ---- so that maybe the number you need to enter into the webpage NEXT - the default username and password --- from page 14 of manual then goto the wireless section and set the WEP security you require

Weak signal thorugh my sbg 900 wireless surfboard gateway

On the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page check whether the WPA Encryption type is TKIP.

If all of your wireless clients support AES, change the WPA Encryption to AES. This may make a difference for you.

Where is the security code to connect to the wireless gateway 2wire?

Usually you can find the security key for the wireless on a 2wire modem/router underneath it there's should be a 10 digit key in there as the wireless security key, if you cannot find it there you need to access the router setup page and it will be better if you can contact 2wire support to walk you through in getting that key from the router page..

Need to change the security of my SBG 900 wireless router

Plug your router in with an ethernet connection and type into your browser address bar. This should load the modem login screen. Unless you have changed the username / password they are admin / motorola. From here you can click on wireless and configure the SSID and security setup.
