If you have Motorola Surfboard SBG6782AC installed at home for your cable and wireless network. Use this complete password guide to help you login to your SBG6782AC modem / router using the default credentials. In addition, learn how to reset the login information if you have forgotten the SBG6782AC password.
Default SBG6782AC Login Password
You can access the Surfboard SBG6782AC modem with any browser and use the IP login address. Always use ethernet connection when you are changing the passwords to avoid any potential information losses. If the default login IP address does not work, consider doing a hard factory reset so you can configure your modem.
Username and admin password:
Default IP login address: 192.168.0.1
Default Username: admin
Default Password: motorola
Although the default login is usually the same for Cox, Comcast, Time Warner, Brighthouse, and other providers. Sometimes your cable provider can push their own default login to your modem/router. When this happens, and you cannot access your modem using the defaults, remove the coaxial cable and do a hard factory reset.
Resetting to SBG6782AC default Password and Login
The default login password combination will not work, if you or someone else had made any change to the SBG6782AC username and password and forget it. You will then have to do a hard factory reset to restore the original defaults. Do the hard reset by holding down the white reset button on the back panel with a pen for 30 seconds and reset default.
Changing SBG6782AC Login and Password
It is advised that you change your SBG6580’s default login to protect against unauthorized entries or edits to your modem. To change the factory default login, go to the following screen and change your login combination.
Click the Status -> Security to display the Status Security screen. Change the drop down selection box to “Change Username”. It should be noted that the new custom login and password made by you are case sensitive.
You will need the “current” login information to make any changes to the default. After you do the factory reset, the default SBG6782 AC user and pass combo would be (admin/motorola).
