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.

Hello,
You can enable your router firewall by logging straight into your router, as the necessary software (firmware) is within the router itself.

To login to the router, open a web browser, and type the IP address of the router into the address bar. The default for this router is http://192.168.0.2

You should see a popup box asking for username and password. This are likely to be the defaults: username: admin and password: motorola. Click to login.

If successful, you should now see the router configuration screen.
Click 'Firewall' tab in the left hand screen. From here you should be able to configure the firewall. You can enable it in Policy > Basic.

Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if you need further help.

SBG900 doesn't go online


I have the same modem/router. I had the same problem. I had to call my service provider and they had to put the modem into the system so the ip address would so up correctly. You need to call them and tell them what kind of modem you have. Have the model number and serial number ready to give them. They will have to make some adjustments on their end and they will most likely tell you to reset your modem. After that it should work fine. My worked fine after I talked to them and they made their adjustments. I hope this helps you.

Can't open my NAT


Hi there.. i had that problem too and i just solved it...
heres the thing..
first you go into the router setup page.. which is.. 192.168.100.1
go to the gateway tab
go to port forwarding tab
go to config
thenTemplate --> custom
Name--> whatever
Port start--> 88
Port end-->88
LAN IP address--> check on your xbox on network settings and copy the same ip address.
Enable --> checked
Then click add.
After that.. you will do the same thing but on the port option you will put 3074. add it ..
now your nat should be open. ;)
