Question about Zoom (5590-00-03) Wireless Router (G66115)
I bought the Zoom aDSL X6 modem/wireless router last winter and used it successfully for several months to connect via Ethernet cable to my desktop box and via wireless to my laptop. But suddenly last September, I found myself unable to make a connection to my wireless network.
My laptop WILL connect to other wireless networks in the neighborhood. And I've disconnected the Ethernet cable from my desktop box, installed a wireless card, and tried to make a wireless connection from that machine, too -- but without success.
The Ethernet-cable connection works fine, connected to either computer. I'm guessing, therefore, that the problem lies someplace in the wireless portion of the Zoom X6. Any ideas what I might do to fix it, or is it likely just broke and needs replacement?
Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:
1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.
2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.
