Question about Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem (55900003)

1 Answer

My zoom x6 modem doesn't block pings (ICMP). How do I configure?

When I try using "shields up" to test my firewall, it fails the ping test, responding. I cannot find any way to configure it to prevent this.

Saibrains is correct unless your firmware is of earlier version. you might have to upgrade your firmware. Also you can not use a port #
No ports required for Ping as it uses icmp packets

It needs to allow icmp 'echo-request' (type 8) packets out and icmp 'echo-reply' (type 0) packets in
to allow ping request. On earlier versions of the sonicwall firmware it only absorbed Ping request as to stop hackers from ping attacking pass the firewall.

check the manufactures website for your model and see if they have newwer firmware.

The GUI should have a place where you can set it up

Hi,

If the Internet is red, this may be because of problem with authentication. Please pull the configuration page of modem and check whether the username/password are correct.

Zoom X5 adsl with Embarq high speed internet


Hello wil31nc, Lets get back to basics, what I want you to do is to turn off your windows firewall for now, reset your router/firewall to its default configuration. How to do this This can be found in your users guide (Hard Reset). Once this is done then I want you to connect your DSL upto the Router and your PC to one of your LAN ports. It (the router) should give you an IP Address at this point, then I want you to use your web browser to log into the web UI of the device once there you will need your ISP provided login ID and password. choose PPPOE and after you input those (login and password) into the proper dialog box. then from your PC try to perform these tests: ping to the router 192.168.1.1 (ping 192.168.1.1) ping to the ISP gateway address (ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) (xxx=The octets of the address of the ISP router) ping to a site on the internet (ping www.dslreports.com) you shouls at least be able to ping to the gateway (ISP router) of your ISP. I beleve that this will get you up and running
