Question about Arris SBG1000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway Router (493989-001-00)

Motorola SBG1000 No Power


My Motorola SBG 1000 Wireless Modem/Router will no receive any power what so ever. I have tried two power cables and numerous plugs as well as coaxial cables. Does the power depend on the actual coaxial as well? If so I imagine the coaxial port is bad. I had the same model operating fine until it was damaged by a fallen speaker. I purchased the same model and I am unable to get power.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Motorola SBG1000 No Power

My SBG1000, had the same issue. I had removed the cover and saw that the solder failed at the main power supply, simply re-soldered and it resolved. I think that a weak solder joint had plagued these units.

I want to password protect my sbg 1000 . i have never do it before but i have more stuff running thru now

You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

My laptop is asking for the security key in order to connect to the wireless network. I am sitting right in front of the router, but I do not know which numbers/letters it is wanting

The SBG 1000 only supports wired equivalent protection (WEP) encryption. Did you set up the router yourself or your ISP. If the ISP set it up they will have the WEP key, if you set it up and don't remember, you can either log into your router and find the WEP key, or reset it to the factory defaults via the reset button on the back of the router

Can I use my router just as a Wireless router with a DSL .

i doubt it will work. most times the cable companies give you a modem/router all in one box. the problem is there in no inbound connection to recieve an internet signal other than the cable cord connection. with the dsl modem you will need a seperate router. they cost around $40-50 on avg

Make sure your modem or router is compatible with XBOX. I think Microsoft has a lost of working modems and routers. If this is all clear, connect the eth.cable to the modem/router. Power up the modem FIRST then the xbox. All this without any cd/dvd in the tray.
Usually as simple as that...
