Hi.. I have just been connected to cable broadband with a Motorola Surfboard SBG9001 modem. I don't have any security, how can I change that so that the neighbours get free internet. Thanks


Open Internet Explorer and type 192.168.0.1 in the location for a web address.
When the SBG900 page appears choose WIRELESS on the left.
When WIRELESS appears click SECURITY AND stay on the basic page.
Choose WPA as the SECURITY MODE.
Use your phone number as your passphrase
Under the WPA CONFIGURATION section choose TKIP and LOCAL WPA-PSK.
Then click SAVE CHANGES.
The SBG900 may restart before the changes take effect.

Can i change the frequency on this router it is interfearing with my security system


http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/sbg900/downloads/sbg900_user_guide.pdf is a pdf of your manual. On page 71 it shows a menu that allows you to select a channel.
"Channel" is another name for frequency. It probably defaults to channel 1, try setting it to channel 11. Or channel 6.

Wireless light is yellow on SBG900 .. can connect to internet wired, but not wireless


Sounds like your wireless card is not working. Some will have an on/off switch on them that will cause this problem.

I am unable to connect to my VPN, although my wireless connection is excellent


Double check that you are using the proper WEP key and VPN settings. You can also try using a different channel for your wireless. Many of these systems use Channel 6 as the default channel. Change this to channel 10 in the router. If you are forcing 105mbs you will need to change that to automatic to make this change as in forced 105 mode the only broadcast channel to use if 6.

Sbg900 wireless connectivety


I had that long time ago. Now I do not broadcast ESSID and changed the channel to 11 (I also use Vonage and when the call was placed the wifi was dropped. No longer).
Changing the MTU to 1452 (on the gateway) helps with the connection. Just to make sure I assigned the first IP address a bit away from the starting point, .10 so that somebody around having the same would not confuse my settings.

SBG900 Wireless not detected


See the other post. Change the "channel" on the online settings and that should work.
