Question about Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem (55900003)

1 Answer

Wireless connection is slower than wired!

I ghave a zoom x6 wireless router and even though my broadband package allows speed up to 8MB and BT say my area can get up to 6.5MB, I have been getting just 2.5MB! I recently queried this with my provider who asked what hardware I was using. This made me wonder whether the speed was any different when plugged directly into the router. It is! I got about 5.5MB! Why is there such a difference between the wireless and wired speeds?

    So a 3MB difference is normal & I can't do anything to improve it?

Yes there is a difference although most router manufacturers claim that you can get 4 or even 6x times faster than 54Mbps of a regular 802.11g wireless standard, wired connection(10/100/1000Mbps) are still faster because they are less subjected to interference unlike wireless that are vulnerable to interference like cordless phones, microwave devices, lighting fixtures, distance and the obstruction between your wireless router and the computer.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

I need a signal booster for my zoom wireless. I


Rather than going down the route of signal boosters, I would reccomend "homeplugs" This runs your broadband signal through your electricity ring main. You can then extract the broadband connection at any plug socket you want. Have a look at the link.

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.
