Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip, and insert it into the small "reset" hole in the back of the modem.

This will reset the modem to the "factory" settings.
Then, reconfigure your modem, as if it were "day one" that you got the modem.

Hello, I bought motorola wireless surfboard sbg900 from USA. now I want to use it in India. I forgot password of it. how to solve this problem?


As far as I know there is no password on that modum only on the wireless network that you set up. If you connect to the modum via ethernet cable..You should be able to access and make changes to anything you need to. If not, there should be a reset button on it. You may have to use a pin or paper clip to press it.

How do I reset the sbg900 to factory user name and password


This pdf is the manual for your modem:
http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SBG900/downloads/SBG900_User_Guide.pdf

Page 7 on the document contains a picture of your modem's back side. You'll notice a recessed button that will RESET the modem back to the default values, which include username and password. Press this for at least 5 seconds.

My new mac mini wants a password to connect to my wireless network (Motorola SBG900)


Hi,

The SSID (network name) and password should be on the wireless router itself, usually underneath the unit.

If its not there, the password will be with documentation you got with the wireless router.



Regards.

I cant reset my Motorola SBG900!


Ok in the back of this unit or bottom there is a reset button or hole that you need a pin needle to access. Press it in for 15sec and let it reboot. Once it reboots, open a web page and type in 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.0.1 This will bring up a log in page. The login is admin and the password is motorola.

Sbg900 setup and login page


I had this problem just last night. I held down the reset button for 20-30 seconds. It worked when after pressing teh button the LEDs stayed on and then after the 20-30 seconds they started to blink indicating the reset. If they do not start reset while holding down the reset, let go and the modem should reset itself. It took me a few times to get this right since teh reset button is rather sensitive and a momentary depression/release will resutl ina reset of the modem but not to default password. I found out I was inadvertantly doing this momentary reset due to teh sensitivity of the switch.

Anyway, next make sure you type "admin" and "motorola" in all lower case. I was using Admin and Motorola - no good.

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.
