Problem connecting to Router with Mac Airport

Hi, just visiting friends and they have Zyxel 600 series router. I can see the router in the list of available networks but when entering the WPA password it is not accepted. Is there something special I should do because I am using a Mac? I had this problem once visiting the USA and there I had to enter the dollar sign before the password. Perhaps there is also a trick solution for Zyxel and Mac?

    Hi , and thanks for your thoughts - alas - no joy! As I said, I'm visiting a friends house for a week and don't wish to mess with his router -- my MAC does support WPA passwords - have been travling all around Europe and USA and never come across this problem. My friends windows notebook is communicating with the router / I am hard wired at present but still cannot use Airport!! Most frustrating!!

The $ sign or a hash character before the network key only works with WEP 64 bits on Mac, if you enabled WPA(is it TKIP or AES?) make sure that your Mac computer supports that kind of authentication if not try to lower down the security level on the router by using WEP instead of WPA.

    If that's the case you can also inquire if there is another security feature on the Zyxel ADSL Gateway such as Wireless Mac Filter in which the router will filter which computers are permitted to and which is not based on the Wireless Client Mac List.

My Zyxel P-600 series modem is connected to my desk top. Can i get a wireless connection to my laptop?


Yes you should! Download a manual for your router and read how you start the wireless LAN. I think you login to your router by writing 192.168.1.1 in the URL window in a web browser. Password is 1234 as default. Be sure to encrypt the AP with WPA so that your neighbours dont use your internet conection.

I can't get access for new laptop via existing zyxel 600 router


Hi,

On the left side there is a menu called Advanced Setup. After you click on that button you must select on the main panel view the Security button. There you will find the settings for the wireless connection and the MAC filter option also.
