Question about Zyxel ZyAIR G-4100 Wireless Router (ZYAIRG4100)

1 Answer

How do I connect a Linksys WVC54GCA camera to the router?

I purchased this Linksys Wireless-G internet home monitoring camera. Then spent 6 hrs on the phone with their technicians trying to configure it to work with my Zyxel G-4100vs router. ...No luck..
I've got an Xplornet sat. system with the modem connected to the Wan port.... And two of the Lan ports are connected to the printer, and an optional (no wifi) computer plug-in site. ...I tried disabling the authentication, but the router still would not recognize the camera, even if | connected the programing computer and camera into adjacent Lan ports. Are they not compatible?

The camera and the router need to be on the same "subnet" if you don't understand the "subnet" please e-mail me at
the other things is that you can only use the camera "within your network". you can't see the camera from outside. like Starbucks, at work, or by use of any internet browser. etc.
I am assuming you want to able to see the camera using the web browser.
in order for you to see the camera from outside of your network, you have to enable a port on the router. (don't know if you have to enable a port on the Modem). which open your network for attack by outsider. In another words, anybody with wireless laptop can find your network and tap in to it and use it for what ever they want.

I cannot connect wirelessly to my router from my lap top

Set up a Linksys Wireless Router
  • 1 Choose and purchase a Linksys router, taking into account your budget and computing habits.
  • 2 Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.
  • 3 Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.
  • 4 Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.
  • 5 Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."
  • 6 Plug the router into an electrical outlet.
  • 7 Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.
  • 8 Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • Configure the Router
  • 1 Open your web browser, type " " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
  • 2 Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
  • 3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
  • 4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
  • 5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
  • 6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

    First as a test, turn off the wireless security, and see if the laptop can connect.

    If it can connect with security turned off, then it is likely that you are making some type of mistake with the password. (Such as caps lock being on, or having a keyboard error.)

    Good Luck!

    To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

    To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
    1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
    2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
    3. Enter the router setup, login and password
    4. Change the admin password
    5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
    6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
    7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
    8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
    9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
    10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
    To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

    Router not connecting to internet modem

    This is a tuff router.  I bought it myself hoping for good things, and spent a good two days actually getting the thing to work.

    I got mine to work by plugging it into the modem, the laptop I was setting it up with, etc, and then running it all. I would just suggest trying to reinstall it again with everything plugged in from the get go, and then hope for the best.... sorry I cant help more.
