Question about Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router
I just got a new laptop computer. When I tried the internet, it wouldn't work. When I pinged it, it was registering a 75% loss. So I swapped wireless modems. The WPA key was written on a label on the old modem (which I returned to the telephone company), and so now I have no clue what the WPA key is. I knew how to access the modem and change the settings on our old modem, but with this new ZyXEL modem, I can't seem to access it. Is there any way to access the settings and change the WPA?
To access Zyxel configuration/setup utility, launch a web browser (Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, or Netscape, etc.) on your computer, type in http://192.168.1.1 (default IP address for most Zyxel wireless devices) in your Internet browser's Location/Address bar, and then press Enter on your keyboard.
If presented with a user authentication (login) screen, try the following:
Default Username - Zyxel Wireless Router: N/A (none, leave blank)
Default Password - Zyxel Wireless Router : 1234
If you cannot login using the above, verify that (a) you are entering your password correctly, and that (b) your CAPSLOCK key is off. It could also be due to the firmware (a set of instructions stored on an EEPROM microchip) on your Zyxel product being corrupt. If so, you would need to reset your Zyxel WiFi router to its factory default settings.
IMPORTANT: Do not forget to promptly secure your Zyxel router (using a strong password, a non-obvious WEP Key, etc.) following a reset to factory default settings. Failing to do so may potentially expose your entire WLAN to scammers.
*Your vote is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You have to get access to the wireless router or modem, to do that usually you have to type in your browser: http://192.168.0.1 some modems use http://192.168.1.254
