Question about Gateway Embarq Eq-660hw Adsl Wireless Gateway

Open Question

Can I use a wireless router from a previous provider (Centruylnk) with my new provider TimeWarner?

I have a 660HW router from Century Link that I would like to use with my new provider Time Warner. I tried to plug in the Ethernet cable into the router but was not able to access internet. I am trying to save money and not buy another router. Yes I know they are cheap but that 40 bucks can buy a bunch of groceries!

SOURCE: Belkin Wireless G Router causes loss of internet connection

Does your router have one LED lamp for each "wired" port?
If so, does unplugging the Ethernet-cable (the one that connects to your desktop PC) cause the lamp to go off?
Does reconnecting that cable cause the lamp to go on?

Also, on your desktop computer, there could be a lamp right beside where the Ethernet-cable connects into your computer.
Again, disconnect the cable, and reconnect the cable, to see if that lamp goes off/on.

Have you tried a different cable?

Do *NOT* connect your desktop computer to the 'WAN' port on the router -- connect it to any of the "LAN" ports.

SOURCE: Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router

No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

SOURCE: Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.

If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Recently, I bought ZyXEL Prestige 660HW-T1 router, it works fine, but sometimes GREEN Power (PWR/SYS) light changes to ORANGE color and lights for a few seconds and change backs to Green. Is it Ok? or...


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.

I`VE GOT ZYXEL P-660HW-T1 WIRELESS MODEM I BOUGHT


You will have to reset the router to factory settings. There is a small hole in the back, depress the microswitch with a paper clip when the power is on. The default password is 1234. Some of these devices are general, while others are hardwired to work with certain providers. So if, say, this 660 is branded with embarq it is unlikely that you can set the parameters to work with other providers.

I should mention that if you care about security you should not use WEP - a cracker can break an internet connected WEP device in minutes with the right toolset. The protocol has many problems that simply can't be fixed, period. Consider using WPA2 with WPA backcompatability, as allowed by the 660.

Do you have a wireless telephone, operating on the same frequency and same channel as your wireless router? If so, then the telephone and the router will interfere with each other. Change the router to use a different channel.
