Question about Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router

How do you access WPA Key Settings on a ZyXEL modem?

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?
Thanks---

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

Cant access internet through wireless network.


How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

you can ping a website to check if there's data flow. if you're using vista just click the Start button and type in command in the start search, then right click the Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator". in the command prompt just type in this command:

ping www.google.com

if the result is 0% loss then there is dataflow, it might be your firewall blocking the connection or your browser itself is not working properly. you might need to reset the browser if that's the case.

if the result is 100% loss then type in this command:

ping 64.233.189.104

if the result here is 0% loss then it's probably a DNS problem which is quite easy to resolve. you can download and run this application from microsoft:

hope this helps you...

On the DOS black screen after the blinking cursor type ipconfig hit enter check the ipaddress if are getting ipaddress other than (169........) it is proper ipaddress for e.g 147.14.48.478
Ping the default gateway e.g ping 147.11.445.478 if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss zero is with Internet explorer or operating system.
If unable to ping or getting 169..... ipaddress . you are having static ip address
On the black screen at the blinking cursor type ipconfig /release hit enter
then type ipconfig /renew hit enter .check ip address
Ping default gateway then ping www.google.com if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss 0. Try connect to internet using internet explorer or other browser. if still unable to connect then issue with firewall or antivirus or IE corruption .
Create new administrative account in XP and do MSconfig .Restart the system and logon to new account and try connecting to internet.
If issue persist might have to repair IE or operating system as it is software issue or virus issue.
You can connect a different computer if you have one and check internet.
If unable to get any ipaddress or still getting static ip address ,reset modem or check ethernet cable ,do a hard reset on the internet modem.Shutdown and restart computer and check ipaddress then try connecting to internet. Good luck.

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

Cannot "ping" 192.168.1.1 (default gateway)


1) yes, referring to the router's IP address.

2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.

3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?

Wireless connection


Chk if you are able to ping the router ( Start - Run - cmd - ping ip address of the router  ) . IF you can do this when you are wireless, you will know if your card is communicating with the router.
Alternatively, carry your laptop to any hot spot to chk if its the wireless card in your laptop or your router thats causing the trouble. Atleast you can isolate teh issue with this.
