Question about Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router
I have a zxyel router and when I connect via the cable I get internet access. However, I can't connact with wireless. I can't pick up any new wireless routers outputting?? any sugesstions?
Hi again….thank you, I see!
The Zyxel manual is very large (350+ pages); it has several versions, and the user interface is quite complex. I was expecting (hoping) you might see the following screen - p108 of the manual I was looking at.....
- but maybe another option has to be selected at login – eg ‘Advanced’?
I’ll leave that one with you for the moment, but it’s worth noting that when you find it - or its equivalent - ‘Active Wireless LAN’ box must be checked, or wireless will not work.
In the meantime, another troubleshooting step is to check the status of the wireless adapter, on the laptop. If you have not done this already, here is a guide:
1. On your laptop, pull up the Device Manager (if using Windows). One way is to go to Start > Run (for Windows XP only) > type devmgmt.msc in the box you see, and click OK.
2. You should see the Device Manager. Next to Network Adapters, click any ‘+’ you see to locate the Wireless Network Adapter. Are there any unusual symbols there, such as a red cross, or yellow exclamation mark?
If so, this suggests a problem with the wireless adapter. For example, a disabled adapter will show a red cross (right click to select 'enable').
There is more troubleshooting you can do within Device Manager, such as updating the device driver - but it's good to check for obvious problems first.
Apologies if you have checked all this already, but this is where I would start, given the problem you describe.
If all seems well with the Wireless Network Adapter, and the router is broadcasting its SSID - or if you have problems with troubleshooting - please come back to Fixya.
