Motorola SBG6580 / Using A Gateway As A Access Point / Router

Mar 16, 2011

I switched to comcast internet recently and got a new modem. The modem is the telephony Arris one, but the problem is that I already have a Motorola SBG6580 but can not use that for my wireless laptop options. I want to be able to use the SBG6580 as my access point and LAN, but it isn't allowed any internet to share wirelessly?

Motorola SURF Board Gateway SBG6580

Oct 2, 2012

Since the new cable company won't let me use my SB6141, I need to pick up a new cable modem. One that works with Oceanic TWC is the new SBG6580. It has wireless built-in; however, I don't want to use it. Is it possible to use this modem and leave the wireless off? Or does the wireless automatically turn-on whenever the modem is on? With all that said, is the built-in wireless any good? I recently purchased an ASUS RT-56 and would prefer using it to some built-in system.

Adding Belkin N Wireless F5D8236-4 To Motorola SBG6580

Jan 7, 2012

Looking to add my belkin wireless router to Sbg6580 router as an access point to extend wireless. I've read up enough to understand the fundamentals - LAN to LAN, changing IPs, turn off DCHP etc. - but am confused by a couple of things.

First, belkin faqs says to Open the router page, click on "use as access point" (I get that) "Select Enable" (I also get that), and then it goes on to say "This will give you the options to set the IP Address and Subnet mask for the router.**These settings should match your existing network settings; by default the IP address will be set to and the Subnet mask will be". Does this mean to set the IP address of the Belkin to that of the Motorola (which is on this page?

Then the FAQ goes on to say access the LAN and "change the IP Address to something such as or you can use**As long as the first three sets of numbers match your existing network, you will be fine". I thought the LAN IP address should fall outside the DCHP range of the Motorola? So if the DHCP range for the Motorola is through then I'd assign to the Belkin?

Netgear WNDR4500 - Adding Wireless Router To Existing Network?

Sep 23, 2012

Added a wireless router to our office here so that people with laptops could get on the net without having to physically plug in. Right now it is ok, but the router is acting as it's own DHCP server instead of our server here assigning out the IP's.

The main gripe I have is I can only login to the router through my phone and not through my computer. How can I achieve this. We have multiple offices that all connect through a VPN. I would like our sys admin to access the router at his location as well.

Do I just turn off DHCP on the router and thats it? The model is Netgear WNDR4500.

Netgear WNDR4500 / 802.11n And 802.11ac Compatibility?

Mar 31, 2013

I know that N operates on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, whereas AC operates only on 5Ghz. Yet many AC routers advertise as operating on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. So what happens when you connect to an AC access point on 2.4Ghz? Does that operate using 802.11n?

What happens when you try to connect to an 802.11ac access point using an 802.11n client on 5Ghz? Is this possible, or are legacy connections only possible at 2.4Ghz?

I have a Netgear WNDR4500 (802.11n, dual band) currently that I am very happy with. I figure I will eventually switch over to AC. I'm trying to determine if I would be better off simply replacing the N unit with an AC unit, or running both (perhaps WNDR4500 to handle 2.4Ghz clients, AC access point to handle 5Ghz clients, or similar).

Netgear WNDR4500 - Clients Not Showing Up In Clients List

Jul 6, 2012

I have a Netgear WNDR4500 running the stock firmware, acting as a router for my home. I also have 2 routers that are flashed with DD-WRT (Linksys WRT54G and Asus WL-520GU) running as client bridges. The Netgear is and the other 2 client bridges are and The Netgear router is performing DHCP giving addresses from to I have numerous machines connected to the Netgear, wirelessly and wired, and numerous machines wired to each client bridge. All machines have IP addresses that are,,, etc... Everything is working fine, but I have one question: When I access the Netgear router, it shows the client bridges as clients, machines that are wired and wireless to the Netgear router are listed as clients, but the client list does not show any clients that are connected to the client bridges. I assumed that since the router is performing DHCP that all clients would show up.

Netgear WNR2000 As Repeater With Motorola SBG901?

Feb 17, 2011

I have a Motorola SBG901 router/gateway that is hooked to my desktop. I recently purchased a Netgear WNR2000 to use as a router to connect to a Blue-Ray player to receive firmware updates wirelessly. On every attempt to access the netgear unit to set it up as a repeater, I get nowhere. I tried hooking the unit up to my laptop and login in under the admin account but again to no avail. I really don't want to have to disconnect the SBG901.

Netgear WNDR3700 And Motorola 6121 - Lag Spikes From Connection

Oct 31, 2012

I have Comcast cable and prior to a couple days ago, it has always been smooth @ 36mbps download and 5mbps upload. I have a Netgear WNDR3700 and Motorola 6121 connected to my PC via Ethernet cable. Up until a couple days ago, I've been getting lag spikes where my games would completely freeze for a good 2-3 seconds and resume, as if the entire connection dropped and reconnected. I did a speedtest and I was getting around 4mbps download and 1-2mbps upload with huge fluctuation in speed.

I called Comcast and they said they were seeing a "red" signal error from their end so they sent out a tech to my house. He came over, changed some cables outside because they were corroded and that's about all he did. I tested my connection while he was still there and I was again getting 36mbps download and 5mbps upload. It was a quick 1-2 test so everything seemed normal until I started to see lag in games again.

I am getting the same lag spikes, albeit it's not as bad as before but it's still pretty annoying. Using speedtests, I am still getting 36mbps download but the graphs show that there are inconsistencies where there would be sudden drops in speed and picks back up still to show 36mbps. These drops are what I assume are the lag spikes. The upload is also suffering now, dropping down to 2-3mbps and it takes the test about 20-30seconds to load the upload portion of the test. Even loading web pages, sometimes it locks up for a few seconds longer than it should, which is normally instantaneous.

I have tried connecting my PC directly to the modem to bypass the router and am still getting the same lag, probably a little LESS but still the lag is there. My router is has always been updated to the latest firmware.

I have a netgear WNDR4500. What I want to do is stream video from my PC to my IPAD using a program I downloaded from the IOS Store. I simply cant seem to get the router to forward the port.

I will post 3 pics showing what I see on the router side and what the streaming program is asking erroring out. The program on my IPAD just errors out and does not see the PC at home at all.

Internet Port Broken On WNDR4500?

Dec 1, 2012

I recently swapped a router out for an old one to check an internet problem (to rule it out basically) and when I tried swapping the newer (better) one back in it networks fine (ie computers can see/stream off each other) but it doesnt recognize as being plugged into the internet.

After doing a factory reset via I still have the same problem. The only thing I can think of is maybe the port got damaged? (The ethernet cables all work fine).

My process for hooking up the new router in case I was doing something wrong:

Unplug cable modem power, swap all the cords, on router while cable modem was rebooting and then once modem connected I turn on router. Did I need to restart the PC as well? Is that why this is screwing up?

Wi-Fi Connection Is Lost And Needs To Be Re-established Wndr4500

May 27, 2012

I have the netgear wndr4500 setup on my home theater shelves which are located in the corner of the room. When using my ASus G74sx with the Atheros 9002 wifi I consistently get disconnected. The wifi connection is lost and needs to be re-established.

Interestingly, when I am using the laptop downstairs the disconnects never happen. I have pored over my router's settings, updated to the latest firmware, as well as installed the latest drivers on the laptop. I also tried setting the router to short preamble and changing the channels to 11and automatic.

WNDR4500 - Connecting Two Routers For Internet Using Wi-Fi On Both?

Oct 10, 2012

I have two routers, one Apple router and a WNDR4500. The WNDR4500 is the second router and I need to have access to the computers and printers on the first router. Right now I have a cable from the first router (Apple Router) connected to the WAN port on the second router (WNDR4500). How do I set up so I can use both routers as wifi access-spots, both have internet and all the printers and computers are available on both? So I can print and share regardless of which wifi and router I'm connected to.

WNDR4500 Adding A Dedicated Firewall To Network

Feb 22, 2013

I'm considering adding a dedicated Firewall to my network.Here is what my home network currently consists of:

-Comcast Arris TM722 Broadband Modem
-Netgear WNDR4500 N900 Gigabit WiFi 450/450 Router
-2 x Netgear GS108NA 8 Port Gigabit Switches
-1 x Netgear WN2500RP Universal WiFi Range Extender
-4 Pc's running Windows 7 Home Premium
-Netgear ReadyNAS NV+
-3 x Blu-ray players - Sony & Oppo (2 wired, 1 connected by WiFi)
-Sony PS3 (wired)
-Onkyo TX-NR905 AVR (wired)
-Sony KDL-55HX800 TV (wired)
-2 x Vizio E400 Seies Smart TV's (1 wired, 1 connected by WiFi through Netgear WN2500RP Range Extender)
-HP Photosmart Printer

All wired connections using Cat6 ethernet cabling.So, I want to setup a Gigabit Firewall between the modem and the router (and just use the router as the wireless access point) but I don't want to take a hit on my bandwidth speed.I was thinking of the Netgear ProSafe FVS318G for this.

WNDR4500 - Shutting Down Wired PC Disconnects All Wireless Connections

Oct 30, 2012

So I have this Netgear N900 (WNDR4500) wireless router. I have one PC connected via ethernet cable to the router and 4 wireless devices connected wirelessly. As long as the ethernet-connected PC is turned on, the other wireless connections work fine, but as soon as I shut down that PC, the internet connection is lost (although I can still connect to the router via the wireless laptops - router login page - so I know the router's wifi part is working). Why would my PC need to be on? Does the PC handle any of the internet connection for the router?

I hope I don't need to keep my PC running 24/7 so that the other devices can access the internet!

SBG6580 Low Signal From Home Routers

Sep 11, 2012

I have a broadband Motorola SBG6580 cablemodem that feeds internet into my main home computer via a cable. The modem is also a wireless router.The modem is in an "office-room" inside my house. The main bedroom is located about 25 meters, with two bedrooms in between the office-room and the main bedroom.I broke a leg so I figured I could work on bed, but I have this problem: the signal from the motorola wireless router is so low at the main bedroom that the connection drops all the time. Oddly (or maybe not), I can see like 10 other access points, presumably from my neighbors, all with a full signal. And I live in a "full-floor" apartment so I only have neighbors above and below.I connected a linksys WRT54G2 that I have and I get the exact same problem.

SBG6580 Private LAN Subnet Conflict

Jun 28, 2012

I have a Motorola SBG6580 wireless gateway/router and am happy with it in general. I had a 192.168.2.n subnet with old Linksys but I find that I cannot change the MOT from its pre-set 192.168.0.n net to the because it conflicts with a "private LAN" in the same range. How do I change the provate lan to, for example, ..9.n so I can use the ...2.n net? I'm running with the ..0.n now, just fine, but, I VPN into office and primary net there is ..0.n and so is confusing with IP shortcuts/conflicts. how to make the change?
