Set the router to low or medium, save, then set to high. This model does this occasionally after a firmware update.

It is recommended to hard reset the router every after firmware update. Look for the reset button normally at the back of the router. Press and hold it down for 20 seconds then release, then unplug the power for about 30 seconds then plug it back in. That should fix it.

My computer recognizes the wireless network that I have set up with my NBG-416N Router, and my internet works when I plug into the ethernet. However, I can not get any internet from my wireless.


Is it enabled on your laptop? It can be turned off! All laptops are different, some have a switch or on/off button for the wireless receiver, some use a keystroke/combination. Look for picture of radio signal on your F-keys, if you find it, hold down the FN key and tap the radio key, it will toggle it on then off.

When you get that symbol in Windows 7 it usually means that there is no internet connection. You can be connected to the wireless router but still not get on line if the wireless router has lost the internet connection. Probably your best bet will be to update the firmware on the NBG-419n. The only firmware sometimes had issues staying connected to the Internet through some modems. First you will need to download the firmare. Here is a direct link. Firmware Then you need to log into the router. It will be best if you are on a computer that is connected by Ethernet to one of the LAN ports on the router. Open up Internet Explorer and type '192.168.1.1' into the address bar. You should get the login page for the NBG-419n. Default password is 1234. Once logged in click on Expert Mode at the top right corner of the page. Then click on the maintenance icon on the left side of the screen, then click the Maintenance heading to drop down the list, then click on Firmware Upload. Once in there click Browse and select that BIN file. Then click Upload. The firmware upgrade should take a couple of minutes. Once it is done you may want to power cycle your modem for a couple of minutes and then see if you can get on line. This should help with any connectivity issues.

NBG-419N can not connect to the internet thru router?


Have you connected your Zyxel to your cable/DSL modem? Is your access problem issue with Wireless computers? The first thing you must do with a new router is to set it up, using a CAT-5 cable connected to the router. Connect it to http://192.168.1.1 and proceed through the setup items, after logging in to the router. One of the more important items, Security, must be set up by choosing your network name (SSID) and security passwords --- I prefer using the WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity. You will need the passcode you choose whemn you try to access the router wirelessly, once this is set up. Not too much access unless this is done. Use this as a guide:

This is a common problem. There are two ways on how to fix this. First, update the firmware of your router. You can download the firmware from Microsoft download site.

Before you install the router's firmware, you must do a hard reset. Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for another 30 seconds before you plug it back in.

Access the router's admin page through http://192.168.1.1 and look for firmware update settings.
After successfully updating the firmware, you must do a hard reset again. Reset for 30 seconds then power cycle it.

In fixing low signal strength, you'll just need to change the wireless channel on the router's admin page. Access the router's admin page through http://192.168.1.1 and look for wireless tab, change the channel to 11 and save the settings. If you have cordless phone you need to relocate its base away from the router.
