What is the default network security key

Actually the Motorola SBG901 comes with security enabled on the wireless. You need to use WPA-PSK code found on the label on the bottom of the modem (or on the several extra labels in the box) to sign onto the wireless network. It is one of the only modem/routers I have ever seen who has the factory default as security enabled. It is frustrating - I just spent 2-3 hours figuring this out myself. The intstructions are less than clear that this is the code to use - but it is!
