Question about Zoom X6 Adsl Wireless Gateway Rohs Router

1 Answer

DSL Flashing I brought the Zoom X6 so I can have a internet on my laptop wirelessly. Whilst installing the Zoom X6 correctly I realised that the DSL light wasn't solid. I wasn't sure if i needed to replace my Thomas Speedtouch 330 with the Zoom X6. I tried replacing the modems and the DSL light was solid on the Zoom X6 but I have no internet connection on my computer because i needed the Speedtouch to activate my connection and also connecting the laptop to the Zoom network I had no internet connection. Is there any solution to this problem, is there a way to have both speedtouch and zoom x6 connected on my computer??

You dont need both. Do the following:
Unplug your speedtouch from the phone line at the back of the speedtouch unit. Plug that cable into your Zoom. Then plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)

PPP Password doesn't match error


1. You should better check the power supply if it is plug on, properly on a 220AC Voltage. 2. After installing your disk suppose to be you should reset the configuration of your DSL 2740B so that it will restore back to the main configuration of the system. (to reset your DSL 2740B try to look for a small button on it. then press according to standards then your done. Good luck and i hope this steps will help you accurately. God Bless.

Signal showing but no connection (zoom 5590 x6)


Hi……there could be a number of reasons why you can’t connect. I’m assuming you have rebooted both laptop and router to see if this helps, so let’s move on to some basic troubleshooting steps to start with:


  1. Can you pick up the internet through a wired (Ethernet) connection between the laptop and the router? If so, this narrows the problem down to your wireless connection.
  2. Can you login to your router again, and check to see if MAC filtering has been enabled. To find this, go to Advanced Setup > MAC filtering. If the status is ‘enabled’, disable it, Save changes, and try to connect wirelessly again
  3. If MAC filtering is off, and you still can’t connect, go to ‘View Wireless Networks’ on your laptop: disconnect from your network, wait 30 seconds, and reconnect. When prompted, re-enter your network key very carefully. Can you connect now?

If you still can’t connect, please come back to Fixya, and let me/us know the operating system on your laptop. Good luck…

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting


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.

X6 modem router


Your ISP probably has some setup requirements from the modem side of the router that will need to be identified.
