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.

I have a SBG6580. I am trying to enter the security key but cannot find it on the back of the router...please help


I shall have to assume you in a 'Factory Reset' situation, where you have not signed into the modem, and changed username/password defaults, (new unit, fresh out of the box).
Do not connect to the cable company yet. First, secure the modem.....
From the User Manual, page 9..... You do have a User Manual?
1. Open a browser window, after connecting your computer.

Use a 'wired' connection. Never change security settings, using Wi-Fi connection.....

2. Type in the IP address for the modem 192.168.0.1 in the URL address. That should take you to the modem's password change window.
3. Type in the default Username: admin.
4. Type in the default Password: motorola.
5. Type in your new username in the Password Change Username field.
6. Type in your new password in the New Password field.
7. Re-enter your new password
8. Re-type your new username in the Current Username Password field.
9. Click Apply.
10. Connect the modem to the cable company. You should shortly be able to go online, after the modem has synchronized to the cable company. That usually takes about a minute.

Your question asks for the 'security key'. That generally refers to the Wi-Fi settings. If that is the case, go to the 192.168.0.1 address, sign-in, and click on Wireless. Follow the obvious directions.... Or, post here again....

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.

How do i secure it


You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot connect 2 computers to Motorola SBG900 wireless cablemodem


mac and pc security keys are not interchangable. I suggest not using a a key for both units. You can reset the router by unplugging it for 1 minute. or you gain access to the router through the web address. 192.168.1.1 Type this into the address bar to gain access to the router.

Motorola SBG900 settings set back to default settings


This exact problem just happened to me today. I called Motorola & they said this sometimes happens as a result of a power surge (can be on the cable or power lines). All settings were lost & I had to redo the entire set-up from scratch.
