To reset the values to their defaults, hold down the reset button located at the top most part of the modem for more than 5 seconds, you can use a pen or a paper clip. Resetting may take 5 to 30 mins because the SBG900 must find and lock on the appropriate communication channels

By holding down the button in the back, you may have reset it to factory defaults for the password and username. Try using Admin for the user name and motorola for the password.

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.

Running Vista. My laptop won't conenct via wireless, but other laptops i add can connect via wireless to motorolla SBG900, even though i have added my laptop's mac address for the dell wireless card.


You need to ensure you laptop has DHCP set to OFF and disabled, START>>RUN>>services.msc enter, scroll down to DHCP, set to OFF and Disable.Reboot. Now check that the PC, it must have a login password, must be in same Workgroup, and have Sharing enabled, too. it also MUST have a Name too. The "Other" PC's all need to be the same, workgroup, password, name sharing etc.

I have lost my router User Id and Password. So is there any way to fix it or i need to get a new router...


In the back of the unit there is a reset button, you need to hold it in for 30 seconds, this will set everything back to the default setting.

Your default settings are
user--admin

password- motorola

You will have to run through the settings to set up the router again.

I dont know the key


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

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.

Get to the security setting for my motorola sbg900


Bring up your internet browser, and in the address bar enter "192.168.0.1". This will bring up a page that asks for a password and username. The defaults are:

Username - "admin"
Password - "motorola"

From here click on the wireless option, then on security, and I would suggest using WEP, and throwing on encryption. Also you will probably want to click on the admin option at the far left to change your username and password, since if people know those security becomes a bit more pointless. Make sure you do not forget your new username and password, as you can probably see there are currently many people on this site with the problem of not remembering what they set it to. :)

Disabling firewall?


by default, you can get to the surfboard configuration page by http://192.168.100.1. username: admin / password: motorola
username and password are case sensitive.

if you dont know the password better get it from your roommate to avoid resetting the modem back to factory defaults. if there's no other way to retreive it you can reset it by pressing the reset button on the back of it for 5-10sec.

after resetting, according to the manual, the modem might need 5min to 30min to sync again with your ISP.
