In order to solve this problem you would have to connect to the router through the ethernet cable and from there you can access the settings where you would be able to see and/or change the WEP key.

    To connect to the modem

    type in the address bar of your browser

    default login is admin
    default password is motorola

    The problem with the sgb900 is that the instructions tell you to set to wep or aes before you can insert the wep key. Yes really, it does not allow insertion of the wep key prior to activation of the wep or aes, hence it locks you out and there is no way to determine what the key ought to be.

    Clearly designed by a programmer, sigh!

    It may be that there is a config tool as that is mentioned in the manual, and or the settings will activate if you use I.E (I am in this instance workign from a mac using firefox and the settings are not becoming active before locking me out).

How do i find my wep code for my motorola sbg900

OPEN A BROWSER & type enter.
This should open up the wizard to make settings. Look through all the different tabs & links.
If you cant do it then hit the reset button on back & hold it in for 30 seconds. release and it will be back to default settings. Enter your own NEW wep code.

I need wep key westell model 327w

Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!

My computer shows my sgb900 with a good signal but wont connect i have a compaq laptop running 32 bit vista


Please check the security feature which you have enabled on sgb900. I dont think that running vista or Xp will make any change.

I cannot upload via FTP, I have a motorola sgb900

Set up a port trigger for FTP in the "Gateway" section on the "Port Triggers" page. Click on the "Custom" link at the head of the page.

Enter these values

Name FTP
Enable checked
Protocol TCP
Port Range 21:21
Session Chaining TCP/UDP
Session Interval 600
Address Replace Disable
Multi Host Yes

Click Add, then Apply.

You should be all set. Either that, or you could turn off the firewall.
