My motorola router (SGB941) will not show up on wireless. Already reset in the back. Any ideas?


Make a wired connection to the router. Open a Web browser. Type in the Web address 192.168.0.1. You should get a login screen. If you don't know the username and password, try "admin" for username and "motorola" for password (without the quotes).

Once you've logged in, navigate to the Wireless Primary Network page and make sure "Primary Network" is Enabled and "Closed Network" is disabled.

Try 255.255.255.0 for a subnet mask. That should be the one by default. Usually the network setup on your Tivo should be automatic when it looks for the router. Is the wireless turned on the router?
