Question about Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router

1 Answer

Cannot see other computers on my Zyxel router network

I've just replaced a sick Linksys ADSL router with a Zyxel one, and overall am pleased with its performance.

I have three laptops that access the net via wireless, and my main PC which is connected to the router via a LAN cable.
My problem is that the main PC cannot 'see' the wireless laptops, andthey cannot see the main PC - which is a headache, since the main PChas the printer attached which needs to be accessible on the network!

I have tried going through the network setup routine on both a laptopand my main PC, but while all the wireless laptops can see eachother, they are still blind to the main PC. What do I have to do to get all the machines accessible to the main PC??

All the PCs are running Windows Vista, Home Premium.

    The settings are all the same - the same as they were before, when they
    were connected on the network before I changed the router. All the PCs
    are on the same workgroup and all have network discovery on.

    Did you put administrator rights or might be the firewalling system/ antiviruses might block it.

I have a ZyXEL EQ-660R-F1 and a Linksys Wireless Router (B BEFW1154) that I'm trying to hook up. Can you tell me what I need to do?


Who is your ISP (internet service provider)? Anyway, it is possible to get your set up working. ZyXel is the DSL modem gateway and Linksys, your router/wifi. If you are able to get online by hooking up directly to the Zyxel, then it is possible to add the Linksys to the system.
Dont hook up the Zyxel to the Internet port of Linksys just yet. First you have to configure the Linksys by connecting your PC to it with a cable. Boot up the PC.
Open web browser and enter the address 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. This is the default address of the Linksys. username = admin and no password. It is probably the same as the Zyxel which causes the conflict.
The first set up page may look something like this below.
Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1
Then click apply...From now on the Linksys IP address is 192.168.2.1.
Now you can connect the Linksys internet port to the Zyxel. Reboot the Linksys and Zyxel.

Your PC should be on the internet after that. To check/setup wifi, you need to log back into the Linksys using the new adress x.x.2.1

How do I bridge mode a ZyXEL 600 series ? help please


Try setting both internal and external interfaces to DHCP rather than static, or if you have legal static IP address put it on INTERNAL interface only.and leave external as automatic.

Can't connect my Ipod touch to my router?


You must be sure to what router you are trying to connect. I understand you have a ZyXel and a linksys. You must have 2 wireless networks. Your wireless network must be secured, so you just have to use the correct password. I need more details. Try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

Port forwarding


well to start, your connection would possibly be ADSL and your zyxel is set to provide DHCP address on your network, so its router capabilities could be turned on.

if this is true, you may need to rework the connection settings.

here's a recommendation:

1.set your modem to bridge mode (bridge only)
2.this will then be allowing your linksys to manage your DSL connection through PPPoE
3.after so, your linksys router should get a public IP address for an internet IP when you go to status tab (not an IP address starting with 192.168.1.xx)

after so, you may reconfigure your port-forwarding.

the reason why you will need to set your modem to "bridged" only is that if it is not, your zyxel's firewall is also turned on, provided that the linksys' firewall is always on. so even if you define which port will be opened on the router, it will still be blocked by the modem's firewall.
