The username is "admin," and the password will be "motorola." These are the [case sensative] default settings. If it doesn't work, you may have changed them yourself and not remember, or your internet installer may have done it for you when they set-up your internet connection [I know the guy who came to my apartment tried to do that to mine]. In either event, if you don't remember what your settings are, just reset your modem. This will restore ALL factory defaults on the modem.

To reset your modem, just look at the back. An inch or so above the Ethenet jack is a tiny pinhole. To reset your modem, you need to stick something in there [A mechanical pencil will work,or a paperclip], and hold it for a full 30-seconds. All lights will go out, and then slowly all come back on, but keep on holding - do not let go until a full 30 seconds are up. After 30sec, let go - the lights will all go out again, and then slowly return. The modem is now restored to its factory defaults, so open up a browser page, access the modem [192.168.0.1] and try the default login ID & password. Good luck.

I have the Motorola SBV5120 SURFboard Cable Modem now because we upgraded to optimum now i do not know how to find the WEP Key on this modem please help me


The Motorola SBV5120 cable modem does not have wireless capabilities and therefore does not require WEP encryption key. There is no WEP setting available for this cable modem.

How do i put a password on my wireless motorola router?


Use the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page to encrypt your transmitted data. Choose one of:
If all of your wireless clients support WPA encryption, we recommend using WPA instead of WEP because WPA:
• Provides much stronger encryption and is more secure
• Provides authentication to ensure that authorized users only can log in to your WLAN
• Is much easier to configure
• Uses a standard algorithm on all compliant products to generate a key from a textual passphrase
• Will be incorporated into the new IEEE 802.11i wireless networking standard
For new wireless LANs, we recommend purchasing client adapters that support WPA, such as the Motorola
Wireless Notebook Adapter WN825G, Wireless PCI Adapter WPCI810G, and Wireless USB Adapter WU830G.
For more information about the benefits of WPA, see the Wi-Fi Protected Access Web page:
http://www.wifialliance.org/OpenSection/protected_access.asp.
Configure on the SBG900 Required On Each Wireless Client
If all of your wireless clients support Wi-Fi
Protected Access (WPA), we recommend
Configuring WPA on the SBG900
If you use a local pre-shared key (WPA-PSK) passphrase, you
must configure the identical passphrase to the SBG900 on each
wireless client. Home and small-office settings typically use a
local passphrase.
Configuring a RADIUS server requires specialized knowledge
that is beyond the scope of this guide. For more information,
contact your network administrator.
Otherwise, perform Configuring WEP on the
SBG900
You must configure the identical WEP key to the SBG900 on each
wireless client.

I cant find my wep key for my motorola sbg900 and i need it to get online for my ps3. how do i find it?


Usually to do this, you need to connect to the router with a computer and an ethernet cable.

Start the browser and enter the following:

http://192.168.100.1 or http://192.168.0.1

This should bring you to a configuration screen of the router. Next, go to the configuration tab and head out for the wireless configuration and then the security configuration. In there you should find the location where the WEP keys are stored.

if you can't get connected, yu can look for more help in the manual of the device.

You can download it here:

Password for setup program lost /WEP-key??


If by set-up program you mean 192.168.0.1, then the default password is "motorola" and username is "admin" from there you should be able to see everything you need. If you changed it from the defaults, then you might have to reset the SBG900 to factory defaults by pushing and holding the small reset button on the SBG900.

I never had to run any "setup program" to get mine working, just plug and play. If you did need to install additional software then you might have problems that I am unaware of. Hope I was able to help.
