  1. I have no problem with my xp pro laptop or desktop...have a new acer aspire one laptop with win 7 and it won't detect the modem/router...however I can see my neighbors network.
  2. your modem is in 5Gz and your computer can only detect in 2.4Gz this can be changed in the options when connected by Ethernet Motorola's website tells you how to do it
  3. Cannot login to motorola surfboard SBG6580 ?

    You have no idea how long I've been digging around looking for a way to get into my router...your second suggestion is the first and only user/pass combo that's actually worked. You're a godsend. Now if only I could get it to let me change the username...apparently I don't have permission to do that, which leaves me wondering who does...
