Zyxel PK5001Z keeps disconnecting after 15 minutes in games, cannot connect to PSP and can barely connect to XBOX 360


I see a whole lot of answering and very little reading. After speaking with Centurylink's tech support for several weeks I had a lady who saw the amount of times I called in and forwarded me to her boss. He told me that they were having that same problem in house and that it appeared to be a firmware issue that they couldn't locate. He offered to ship me an older modem that didn't have Draft N, which I could care less about because I don't share files wirelessly all the time. So there you have it, from what I've seen it appears to be a packet loss as only certain things disconnect at times. For me it could be a game and vent or just the game or just vent. It is definitely these PK5001Z modems though.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

How to set up xbox live? i have wireless, but it still doesnt work.


The 360 requires a wireless adapter, which I assume you already have. This would connect to your wireless router or other wireless access point you have in the house.

If you are having issues connecting still, make sure your High Speed modem is a docsis2.0 modem or higher.

If you are still unable to connect through your wireless, I suggest plugging an ethernet cable directly from your router into your 360. This is to make sure you get the best and most reliable connection.

If location of router versus location of XBox is a problem, a long ethernet cable can be purchased from a website like Newegg or Amazon for a cheap price.

Wont let xbox live update i checked connection and it was fine


If your Xbox 360 console is connected to the Internet through a router or gateway (as opposed to through a direct modem connection), try connecting the console directly to the modem. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console and the other end into your modem.
  2. On the console, sign in to Xbox LIVE and start the game.
  3. Choose to download the game update.

If you can download game updates when the Xbox 360 console is connected directly to the modem, there might be a problem with your router or gateway configuration.

Cheers!!

Connecting windstream dsl modem to xbox


Did you get a router, the dsl modem it self wont do much good, you need a router so it can assign your xbox an IP address. You need to have a router hooked up to the DSL modem, and the xbox hooked up to the router.

First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.

Help connecting to XBOX Live


If the modem is not connected to a computer, you have no need for a router. Try restarting the modem with the XBOX connected, that might do it.
