This a long one, I have to cut it into 2 parts. Since Fixya have limited space on each of the reponds.

There few steps that you need to take in order to get to the x6 modem.
You may already taken these steps before, but you need to re do this again:
Step1:
Disconnected the modem from the computer and turn it off.
Make sure the DSL software is installed on the computer.
Disconnect the ISP cable from the modem and leave it off for now.
Turn off the computer.
Step2:
Reset the DSL by insert a paper clip into the “reset” pinhole on the rear panel of the DSL and press 3 times (press down and hold for 2 sec).
Connect the DSL to the computer and turn of the DSL first then the computer.
Step3:
Open the browser and type in http://10.0.0.2 on the address bar, press enter.
If this do not open the DSL login page.
Do the following; close the browser.
Open the DOS prompt (if you have windows Xp or Vista-start>>all programs>>accessories>>command prompt.
Type in “ipconfig/all” (without he quote mark) at the blinking curser.
This is what you should see, with little variation, dependent on what is on the network.

Zoom X6 router does not properly initiate...


The first thing i would do is try to get hold of another router to test on that line to make sure the problem is not with the telephone line or even connecting to the ISP, if you dont have a problem with the second router it is safe to assume the router is at fault, in this case i would reset to factory conditions and then try again, if the problem continued i would go to the zoom website and look for a firmware upgrade.

DSL Flashing


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)

Modem Speed Dropped With Updated firmware


try to lower down the MTU settings of your router. If that does not work, you can try to isolate the concern by using another modem and checking if the same problem happens. if it does, then it is a problem with your ISP but if not then it is on the modem. You can try reset and reconfigure or firmware upgrade.

Zoom x6 router


Well for most zoom X6 routers I saw it's

http://10.0.0.2

That should take you to the main page. The manual is located here for X6 models.

http://www.zoom.com/techsupport/adsl/adsl_x6.shtml

In the manual it's on page 13. I would download a copy of the manual and read it as well.

Zoom X6 wireless router


Hi, With or without the firmware update, the wireless should work and be indicated with the WLAN led. Have you done an update? Have you tried a hard reset? Most routers would require a reset to default after a firmware update. Pls be reminded that when you do a hard reset, all configuration would be lost, better log them down or do a backup. Alternately, you can check your router's web based configuration manager, apparently, there is an enable/disable feature/selection for the WLAN. Verify that is set to enable. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
