Question about Zyxel Prestige 334 Router

1 Answer

Limited or no connectivity.

My router was being attacked recently by the DOS attack. So I need to refresh frequently.. and connection is slow. So i've decided to return the router to its factory configuration. After I do that, I can't go online. I've followed the manual step by step but i still cant get it. I can go online with my modem. But once i plug in the router, i cant. i can get in the web configurator offline but only the first page. When i press login, it says you need to connect. Please help me..

Look in the manual for instructions to do a "Hard reset" usually involves holding the small reset button on the back with a pen (or paperclip) for about 30 seconds. this will absolutely factory reset your router including passwords. the default passwords for your router apear to be "user- Blank, password- 1234" try those settings after reseting the device and see if you can login and change your settings

How to secure a wireless network, access point, or router


Once you have setup your wireless router, it is a good idea to secure it, so that attackers have a harder time getting to your network (if they can get to it at all), and so that people cannot steal your internet, and possibly slow your connection's overall speed. Here are some key tasks to preform in order to secure your network:
  • Disable SSID Broadcast - Doing this makes your network virtually invisible to other devices looking for a connection
  • Change SSID - Most hackers/attackers know the default SSID for routers. Changing it will make it harder for them to guess your network's name (and knowing the SSID can be half the battle).
  • Enable Encryption - This makes it so that you need a password to connect to your router wirelessly. Obviously, setting a password makes it harder for a hacker/attacker to access your network. (I suggest setting a WPA2-PSK rather than WEP, because WEP is able to be cracked)
  • Change Router's IP Address - This is another default setting that hackers/attackers find useful. Changing this, just like changing the SSID, will make it harder for people to figure out your network's address (which would give them a better opportunity to change the settings on your router, just as you are now).
  • Change Router admin password - If someone somehow gets onto your network, doing this will make a last line of defense against a person changing your router configurations.
  • Enabling Wireless MAC Filtering - Doing this will allow you to prevent or allow a specific device or devices connection to your network. (note: not recommended for the regular house hold, because it can be a big hassle for connecting new devices)
Though similar in features, each device has a different way of go about these tasks. If you need further assistance for your particular device, or have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

After preforming these tasks, your network will be much more secure. I am looking forward to getting feedback on this guide.

When attacking monsters and when monsters are attacking me screen freezes then screen says oops sometnibg broke


Check first your internet connection if it is good.. The notice "Oops! Something Broke." you have a slow internet connection to buff the Adobe Flash continuously.. But if have a good connection, some internet provider limits the bandwidth to process the buffering of the site..

Does the router interfere or slow down your internet loading email? And what is the life of a router in years usually?


Yes router can make your connection a bit slow since the router has a firewall inside it that protect your network from outside attack, the life span of a router usually more than 3 years....

Router Firewall


Not entirely. Hardware firewalls (such as the one in your router) will block incoming connection attempts based on the port they're using, the protocol, and a number of other factors (varied between firewall brands). Some are designed to block only popular attacks (DoS, PoD, crackers on port 80, Telnet connect attempts, etc...) while others will block a larger variety of attacks.

Anyways, software firewalls will block almost all incoming Internet traffic (except for the ones defined in the exceptions) along with almost all outgoing Internet traffic. The only way I find this to be useful is if you're trying to keep some private information private, or if you use that computer to determine if some software is trying to phone home (web beacon, trojan, dialer, etc...).

I really don't see the need for Software firewalls unless you're a hard-core web-surfer and don't care what you click on. If you do like the extra security, perhaps one of the better software firewalls is made by ESET.

I prefer ESET to Symantec's Personal Firewall because Symantec's Firewall on one of my older systems was hijacked by a virus a few years back which allowed the virus unprecedented access to the root of my Operating System. The virus gutted the computer without any alerts from Norton CE or the Firewall.

Anyways, I hope this was the answer you were looking for. If not, please feel free to respond with more details on what you were truly asking. All the best. ;-)

How to prevent Port Scanner Attacks on Wi Fi Modem


Withouth knowing the exact model I dont have specifics, but the scanner attacks can usuually be prevented or at least minimzed by a setting in the router that prevents pinging. Some models are better at this than others. Is the unit setup with a passkey? and if so do you know the method?
