Re: ZyXEL P-660HW-D3 password change
There should be a tiny recessed 'button' (usually more of a hole) in the back of your router. This may be marked 'reset'.
To use this to reset your router, the manual for the Zyxel P660HW router advises that your power LED should be on, but not blinking.
Push the end of an opened out paperclip into the 'reset' button (hole) for 10 seconds, or until the power LED blinks. This restores your defaults. The manual I have advises that your password will be reset to 1234. If you have a manual, please check this.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1 Make sure your ZyXEL Device hardware is properly connected (refer to the Quick StartGuide). 2 Prepare your computer/computer network to connect to the ZyXEL Device (refer to theQuick Start Guide). 3 Launch your web browser. 4 Type "192.168.1.1" as the URL. 5 A window displays 6 For administrator access enter the default admin password 1234 to configure the wizardsand the advanced features.(or if you already changed your password, enter that password) 7 On the right hand side of the screen you will see a drop down menu. click on NETWORK. 8 Then click on NAT. 9 Find the area to configure Port Forwarding. 10 The ports that Microsoft recommends to be open are:88 UDP, 3074 UDP, and 3074 TCP. It also looks like you will have to set up a static address on your XBOX (I was looking at the .pdf for your particular router) You can do this by editing your network setting on your XBOX console, and then using this address as your "server" address when opening the above mentioned ports on your router. ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/P-660HW-D1/user_guide/P-660HW-D1_3.40_Ed1.pdf
For the first steps, the WAP-R8900 start wizard shall assist you: After first power on, the system will ask by a screen with flags for your preferred operation language. Select the language by selecting the country flag with UP/DOWN and LEFT/RIGHT buttons and then press OK.

In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push
in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere
between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or
something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once
you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to
the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must
remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router
settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of
the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down
any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset.
Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.
If you need more help post back!

For user access enter the default user password user to view the status only. The following window will appear.
1 For administrator access enter the default admin password 1234 to configure the wizards and the advanced features. 2 Click Login to proceed to a screen asking you to change your password or click Cancel to revert to the default password. 3 If you entered the admin password, it is highly recommended you change the default admin password! Enter a new password between 1 and 30 characters, retype it to confirm and click Apply. Alternatively click Ignore to proceed to the main menu if you do not want to change the password now.
This router has a user password to see the status and an administrator password to change settings. Please mark this as solved if this solves your problem. If not feel free to ask more questions :).
You need to reset your router to defaults then configure it again then it will work fine. For that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
