My ex partner set up my internet access using a Zyxel router P-660HW-T1. Now my daughter has purchased a laptop and wants to connect to the internet. Unfortunately, he didn't tell me the security key...


There is a reset button on the back of the router. You have to press it in for about 10 seconds. (While the router is on) This will reset the router to default settings. You will lose all security, and your network will be "Open". You will then have to refer back to the guide in order to setup your network security, and create a new password.
Here is a link to the guide.

I dont know ho to change the password on the PK5000Z Wireless Router


I just set up my new ZyXEL PK500Z, so happen to know this answer. In the ZyXEL Qwest Modem Configuration (launch 192.168.0.1), select Wireless Setup, then Wireless Security. Scroll down to Enter Security Key/Passphrase. Unless you changed this, Use Default is selected. If you want to use a password of your own creation, select Use Custom, then enter the password you want. Finish with Apply. Everything connected to your network will be prompted to re-enter the password. Is this what you were after?

I`VE GOT ZYXEL P-660HW-T1 WIRELESS MODEM I BOUGHT


You will have to reset the router to factory settings. There is a small hole in the back, depress the microswitch with a paper clip when the power is on. The default password is 1234. Some of these devices are general, while others are hardwired to work with certain providers. So if, say, this 660 is branded with embarq it is unlikely that you can set the parameters to work with other providers.

I should mention that if you care about security you should not use WEP - a cracker can break an internet connected WEP device in minutes with the right toolset. The protocol has many problems that simply can't be fixed, period. Consider using WPA2 with WPA backcompatability, as allowed by the 660.

Where do i find th security key or passphrase on a zyxel 660hw-61 to use my laptop


From User's Manual: In order to configure and enable WEP encryption; click Network>Wireless Lan to display the General screen. Select Static WEP from the Security Mode list.

For Passphrase: Enter a Passphrase (up to 32 printable characters) and click Generate. The ZyXEL Device automatically generates a WEP key.

ZyXEL P-660HW-D3 password change


There should be a tiny recessed 'button' (usually more of a hole) in the back of your router. This may be marked 'reset'.

To use this to reset your router, the manual for the Zyxel P660HW router advises that your power LED should be on, but not blinking.

Push the end of an opened out paperclip into the 'reset' button (hole) for 10 seconds, or until the power LED blinks. This restores your defaults. The manual I have advises that your password will be reset to 1234. If you have a manual, please check this.

Good luck ;-)

Zyxel wireless router password


hi . do you guys cant access to your wireless router ? if yes than try this

reset your modem by pressing reset button on your modem for more than 5 seconds so all the information entered will be gone including your password

than insert your modem CD and connect to your modem

set up your internet again
put your password and user name that your ISP gave you
set : get IP from ISP
get DNS from ISP
APPLY
than go to wireless setting

use wpa- personal
and set up a new password eg. (usa2008)

than it will say your computers and network setting doesnt match
go to connect find your modem
right click on it
click on properties
than go security
choose WPA- personal
TKIP
and your password (usa2008) you set to your modem
connect to your internet


im not sure if this is what you mean / thats how i anderstood your problem

NOTE : RESET YOUR MODEM IF YOU HAVE ALL YOUR INTERNET SERVICE INFORMATION

BECAUSE IT WILL DELETE ALL INFORMATION IN YOUR MODEM including user name / password / IP / DNS / and your modems password
