It depend upon what operating system you got

Windows Xp

right click on my computer icon the click properties and select tab computer name click change and add the same workgroup name as in the rest of the pcs also note down there IP address range.

Some laptop requires to create wirless access profile prior to connect some will create after we connect.

On your laptop enable the wireless switch and make sure its on down in the system tray (next to the time) you can see wireless icon right click and view wireless network then it will show all the wireless around its range click your connection and press connect if it connects its fine otherwise you have to manually enter the ip address for your new laptop according to your home network ip catergory.

Most of the laptop use their own wireless management software which they disable wireless zero service in windows which you have to take care - one only works at a time.

browser (for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer)
2 Type http//:192.168.100.1 and press ENTER to display the login window:
3 In the User ID field, type admin (case sensitive) and press TAB.
4 In the Password field, type motorola (case sensitive) and click Log In to

"Wireless Network Setup"
After enabling wireless security on the SBG900, as required on each wireless client:
> If you disabled ESSID broadcasting on the SBG900, set the client Network
Name (ESSID) identical to the ESSID on the SBG900.
> If you enabled WEP on the SBG900, set the client WEP key identical to the
WEP key on the SBG900.

How do i put a password on my wireless motorola router?


Use the Wireless > SECURITY — basic Page to encrypt your transmitted data. Choose one of:
If all of your wireless clients support WPA encryption, we recommend using WPA instead of WEP because WPA:
• Provides much stronger encryption and is more secure
• Provides authentication to ensure that authorized users only can log in to your WLAN
• Is much easier to configure
• Uses a standard algorithm on all compliant products to generate a key from a textual passphrase
• Will be incorporated into the new IEEE 802.11i wireless networking standard
For new wireless LANs, we recommend purchasing client adapters that support WPA, such as the Motorola
Wireless Notebook Adapter WN825G, Wireless PCI Adapter WPCI810G, and Wireless USB Adapter WU830G.
For more information about the benefits of WPA, see the Wi-Fi Protected Access Web page:
http://www.wifialliance.org/OpenSection/protected_access.asp.
Configure on the SBG900 Required On Each Wireless Client
If all of your wireless clients support Wi-Fi
Protected Access (WPA), we recommend
Configuring WPA on the SBG900
If you use a local pre-shared key (WPA-PSK) passphrase, you
must configure the identical passphrase to the SBG900 on each
wireless client. Home and small-office settings typically use a
local passphrase.
Configuring a RADIUS server requires specialized knowledge
that is beyond the scope of this guide. For more information,
contact your network administrator.
Otherwise, perform Configuring WEP on the
SBG900
You must configure the identical WEP key to the SBG900 on each
wireless client.

My new mac mini wants a password to connect to my wireless network (Motorola SBG900)


Hi,

The SSID (network name) and password should be on the wireless router itself, usually underneath the unit.

If its not there, the password will be with documentation you got with the wireless router.



Regards.

Motorola SBG900 Assign network address to computer


I guess your modem router was already configured well since it worked already previously. It seems that your motorola router is set to broadcast dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled) and your last connected Pc and laptop were configured with static IP. Please check your "network connection" setting and make sure it is set to "Obtain IP automatically"

NO INTERNET CONNECTION


You need to properly configure the wireless settings of your computer. Make sure to disable the firewall on your computer like windows firewall or any other firewall. Now make sure that you have entered the correct wireless security key on your wireless settings. Go to control panel > network connections > right click wireless network connections > properties. Go to Wireless Networks tab and remove all the Preferred Networks there. Go to Add and proceed to adding manually your wireless settings.
