You shoul also have a wireless icon on the x6. if someone is using your wirless link and you are not. the wireless icon should be flashing.
if you don't have the wirelss icon, then you have to have software to monitor the modem activity.

I have the Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem, trouble using software


You may check the following:

1. Make sure to plug the power cube into a power strip or wall outlet and then plug the power cube's other end into the modem's power (PWR) jack.

2. You should only use the power cube with the Zoom X6. Other power cubes may damage your hardware.

3. Try another wall outlet.

4. Reset the modem. Use a paper clip and insert it into the RESET pinhole in the modem's back panel and press it 3 times. Then turn off the modem for a minute and turn it back on. Check if the power light will turn solid green.

5. Possible defective modem.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Ethernet light flashing


Check your DSL Filters on your house phones or anything connected to the phone line EXCEPT the modem. The modem should not have a filter on it. If this doesnt help I would recommend getting your ISP out to test the line because sometimes the resisitors or hardware in the box goes bad or at the DSLAM.

I have a Zoom X6 ADSL modem that keeps dropping my internet signal. How can I correct this?


is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto zoom.com/x6 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

turn off the computer. connect the phone line one end to the ethernet port on your computer and the other end to one of the LAN port on the x6.
power up the (power cube shipped with the X6), the Pwr and the WLAN should come on and become steady, the LINK light should blink,
turn on you computer, connect a new phone line between ADSL port and the wall jack, the LINK light should become steady.

Zoom X6 installation


you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straight forward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.


if you need more information please email me at frcs68@hotmail.com

please rate if the answer solved your porblem.
thank you

Internet light turned red and won't change back to green


Hi,

If the Internet is red, this may be because of problem with authentication. Please pull the configuration page of modem and check whether the username/password are correct.

Take care

Zoom ADSL X6 Modem "Link" Light Suddenly Blinks Continuously


the modem may have gone faulty so if your isp provided it ask them to replace it if the modem is in warranty period and if your isp provides internet connection through the phone line then first please try plugging the modem on main socket in with an adsl filter plugged in and if this is not the case then problem is definately the line through which the broadband signal come to your place which is suppose to be sorted out by your isp.

presuming that the router moved with you the telephone line socket could be too far away from the BT socket or is not correctly wired. if you have not moved the router then you need to buy a booster

Need Zoom X6 help unresponsive


make sure your ethernet port is set to 'obtain address' and 'DNS' automatically (IE use DCHP and not static IP address) The software should be able to 'find' the zoom modem then.
