Security for Wireless LANs
For a LAN with one or more wireless clients, enable wireless security. Because
wireless data is transmitted using radio signals, unauthorized people can
eavesdrop unless you enable wireless security. The SBG940 supports several
wireless security measures. The ones that make sense for you depend on your
needs and networking equipment.
To prevent unauthorized eavesdropping, you must encrypt wireless data
transmissions using one of:

SBG940 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway
ƒ
If all of your wireless clients support Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA),
Motorola recommends configuring WPA on your SBG940 and wireless
clients. You can use the same WPA Passphrase on the SBG940 and any
wireless adapter that supports WPA.
ƒ
Otherwise, configure a Wired Equivalency Privacy (WEP) key on the
SBG940 and each wireless client. You can use the same WEP key on the
SBG940 and any Motorola 802.11g wireless adapter.
To further protect from unauthorized intrusions, you can:
ƒ
Configure a MAC access control list to restrict wireless local-area network
(WLAN) access to known MAC addresses.
ƒ
Disable ESSID broadcasting to prevent unauthorized individuals who scan
for unsecured WLANs from accessing your WLAN.
For more information and procedures to enable these security measures, see
“Setting Up Your Wireless LAN” in the SBG940 User Guide.
Wireless Security on the Clients
After enabling wireless security on the SBG940, as required on each
wireless client:
ƒ
If you enabled WPA on the SBG940, set the client WPA Passphrase
identical to the WPA Passphrase on the SBG940.
ƒ
If you enabled WEP on the SBG940, set the client WEP key identical to the
WEP key on the SBG940.
ƒ
If you disabled ESSID broadcasting on the SBG940, set the client Network
Name (ESSID) identical to the ESSID on the SBG940.

Configuration for Gaming
Firewall: By default, the SBG940 firewall is disabled. If you enable the
firewall, refer to the game’s documentation to ensure that the necessary ports are
open for that game. If low security policy is enabled, the SBG940 can pass Xbox
Live™ by default and no user action is required. If medium or high security
policies are enabled, the firewall must be configured for Xbox Live traffic. Xbox
Live requires UDP 88:88 and UDP/TCP 3074:3074.
Port Triggering: The SBG940 has pre-defined port triggers supporting
DirectX® 7 and DirectX® 8, MSN Games by Zone.com, and Battle.net ®.
If your game uses one of these applications, no user action is required. For a list
of games supported by Battle Net, visit http://www.battle.net. You can also
configure custom port triggers that other games may require to operate properly.
If you set custom port triggers and enable the firewall, you must configure the
firewall to allow traffic through those ports.
Gaming DMZ: Some games and game devices require the use of random ports
or the forwarding of unsolicited traffic. We recommend configuring such a
device as the gaming DMZ host. First, reserve a private IP address for the game
device’s network interface MAC address. Then designate the device as the
gaming DMZ host. You can reserve IP addresses for multiple devices, but only
one device at a time can be the gaming DMZ host. To use a PlayStation® 2 for
PS®2 online gaming, assign it as the gaming DMZ host because the ports
required vary from game to game.
For more detailed gaming configuration guidelines, see the SBG940 User Guide.
