This refers to the wireless connection between your computer & your router, not to the connection from your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) out through your ISP to the Internet.
If you use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the cable/DSL modem, do you still have "intermittent" problems?
If so, then your router (or other wireless devices, such as your neighbours' router, or your neighbours' wireless telephones that are trying to operate on the same broadcast frequency) is the problem.
talk to your wireless manager about your problem. once my laptop didn't receive connection, and it took them a week to fix the problem and get the internet back.
you can also try unplugging the cable ot restarting the computer.
If you are on windows vista it could be your driver. You can go into safe mode on the computer with F8 while the computer is starting up, then go to the control panel and device manager. Plug the adapter in and remove the driver for it. Download a new driver at http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=download and install it.
Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.
try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.
Problem with the Zyxel P-660? I experienced:
1. laptop would see the wireless 660HW briefly and then it would disappear.
2. laptop would not see wireless at all.
3. same issue with desktop when using USB wireless 11g dongle
4. no problem on wired connection (ethernet)
EASY solution! if Zyxel is set to scan for a channel it will want to work on channel 13 nearly every time in a busy environment.
HP laptops and many receivers cannot recieve on 13 - highest channel is 12.
Pick on setting for the Zyxel which matches an available channel on your receiver. Problem solved.
First plug your router directly into your computer via the ethernet cable that came with the router. You'll want to connect the cable to the port on the router that says "Internet" (it's ussally to the far left when looking at the back of the router) make sure the other end is plugged into your computer's Network Interface Card (NIC).
Plug your computer into the modem via the UBS connection.
Insert the setup cd that came with the router and follow the prompts.
Once configured then unplug the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the modem (which should have an ethernet (RJ-45) jack as well as a USB.
Now you can either hook up to the wireless connection using a wireless adapter OR you can plug your computer in with a ethernet cable to one of the outgoing ports on the back of the router.
