Open your Internet Explorer browser:

In the URL field, enter
http://192.168.10.1 (the router's default IP address) and press the Enter key.

Enter as follows:

User ID: admin
Password: motorola

Once you have logged in, for security reasons you should change the User ID and Password.

Reset password


The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

Try contacting your internet service provider. Your modem seems to be on walled garden status meaning the modem is not authenticating any device.

Can't reset my the password for my wr850g motorla wireless router or get into the router configuration utility, every time I try to log in the page just goes blank. I've tried everything but...


I assume that pressing and holding the reset button did not work for you. Try pressing the reset button, and while holding it, power off the unit, wait 10 seconds and then power on again, holding for another 10 seconds. This can be tricky, but it should work.

How can i reset the password to my wireless router (wr850G) I've held down the reset button for more then 30 sec on and off with no luck and when I try to log into the router through a wired connection...


Did you try unplugging it, holding the reset button for 30 seconds, then plugging it in (while holding the reset button), then (after I'd say like 5-10 seconds) letting go of the reset button? Also, if you're seeing a blank configuration page, it could be that the username/password combination is wrong. Try using username "admin" and password "password" "1234" "0000" "admin" and leaving the password blank. One of those combinations should work.

If none of those work, unfortunately, it might be that somehow the router got damaged or broken somehow. You can try some of the steps from the manual (located here) to get it to work again, but you might want to look into a new router.

I forgot my password and i cant let my friends use this line


If you forgot the password, resetting the router will allow you to access the router's configuration screen again. However, this will reset the settings to default, and you will have to reconfigure the router.

To reset the router to the factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds. This clears the router's user settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask.

Here is the instruction manual for the WR850G Router (the above instructions are from page 1-8):

Hi i have the motolora router wr850g and im trying to reset it. but i dont know my password. what do i do?


If you want to reset your router, hold down the reset button on the back of the router for 30sec (this will wipe ALL of your settings). Now that it's reset, your login information is back to the defaults which is admin for your Username and motorola for your Password. If you never setup a password or username before, then this is already (or rather, it still is) your login information. Hope this helps.

Forgot password to network. Trying to reset password. Tried pressing reset button on wireless router but after going to http://192.168.1.254 still asks for a password. Nothing is working.


To reset the router to the factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds. This clears the router's user settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask. To re-configure the router, see Section 3: Configuration.

Wr850g router will not reset held down the reset button for 30 to 60 seconds nothing.


Sounds like it may be "bricked" - check Google for a detailed explanation. The bottom line is the router's firmware may be corrupted and it may be difficult if not impossible to repair - sorry :(

I have a wr850g router which has worked well for 3 years. I tried to configure the network to have a security access code. Partway thru the process I lost access to the router and cannot now reenter...


If you lost your password, you need to reset your router to the factory default and configure it from scratch.

Pull out your router manual or download the PDF file from this (http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/WR850g/downloads/WR850G_userguide.pdf). Follow the instructions from it to:
  1. find out your logon details from your service provider
  2. reset your router to factory default
  3. use a network cable to connect the router to a computer to re-configure the router

Is there any way to reset the password on a wr850g. its been in a box forever and i forgot the setup pass word, and dont have the software...


Yes. You simply press and hold the button on the back for 30 seconds. The button might be indented, this is because it is a reset button and shouldn't be pushed in all the time.

This will reset the password to factory settings.

Thanks,
