You need to be connected to the modem via Eathernet cable. The WPA can not be set up using the wireless.

Going through the same thing.....you must be hard connected (i.e. not wireless) to the cable modem.

We have forgotten our wifi network password. We have a Motorola surboard cable modem but I dont see any wireless router. Is that possible? If so, do we need to reset the modem password? help.


hi,
yes this has built in wireless the thing sticking up in the back is it's antenna.
if you have a machine wired directly to the modem you could then browse it by its IP. usually something like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 there is a default ID =admin and password=motorola..see page 12..http://broadband.motorola.com/noflash/customer_docs/user_guides/506705-001.pdf
if you can't get in you would have to use the hard reset feature described page 15

Trying to apply network key


Hello,
You need your PC connected to the Router via cable, then open Internet Explorer.
In the Address bar type 192.160.100.1 and press enter, for login enter admin and for password enter motorola, now you should see a Motorola window with all the settings.

On the left side select Wireless, a different window will appear.

In the Security Mode field, select WPA and click Apply.
Skip the portion about WEP and go below.

Under WPA CONFIGURATION, for WPA Encryption choose TKIP and for WPA Authentication choose Local (WPA-PSK)

Under Local there is WPA Passphrase, here enter your desired password; try not to forget the password in the future or you have to repeat the steps above, also try to use a combination of letter and numbers.

Click on save changes and you have finish, now you can close explorer.

Please let me know if you need additional help.

regards

Weak signal thorugh my sbg 900 wireless surfboard gateway


On the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page check whether the WPA Encryption type is TKIP.

If all of your wireless clients support AES, change the WPA Encryption to AES. This may make a difference for you.

Locking wireless signal


Did you meant you'd give a passcode for your WiFi network?

Try this:
1. Double click the connected wireless icon on the task bar.
2. Click support tab, obtain your default gateway address.
3. Input your default gateway address to your Internet Browser. (it's like 192.168.x.x)
4. Login by your ID and password (usually leave blank or both ID OR password used admin as the default, depends on the wireless router brand.)
5. Click the wireless tab session.
6. There will be options for security.
7 It's recommended for you to use WPA-TKIP encryption (must contains 8 characters)
8. You've done it!

Any questions? Feel free to ask me =]

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.

Securing wireless network connection


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.
