Question about Zyxel Prestige 334 Router

1 Answer

I am unable to get into my Prestige 334 configuration screen

If I connect just one computer on the Lan and ping, the router doesn't respond, when I thought that the software and the setup box would be something coming out of the router and that, for the configuration, I wouldn't need to plug on the net. But if I do so, the router doesn't give any sign of life even if the color is amber for my pc connection.

If I connect the Internet and one computer on the router, then I can successfully connect to the Internet and ping But if I connect to the address, I get the NetGear password box to configure my NetGear router.

I also tried resetting the router - no change.

Can someone help?

    Dear Fougzki,
    I followed the instruction of the manual point by point setting an address either manually or automatically such as I used the Internet Explorer and Mozilla to connect directly onto the router using the addresshttp:// like the manual says - if i don't plug Internet on the router, these is no answer of the router, if I plug also the Internet, then I get the Netgear password windows, meaning all my connections are working, the light is amber but the router doesnt give me any password box like it should, if I disconnect the Internet.

    So, what did I do wrong per the manual ?

    1) The power light is green, enough power, in fact, right now, I am answering you going through the router, which doesnt filter anything.
    2) There are effectively other routers up the line and thus other via. Otherwise, the firmware is original.
    3) Right now, I have only one computer connected to the router plus the Internal line coming from another router. It is true that there are certainly several other routers on the line before the P334.

    Now my question is: When you configure your P334, did you have to connect also the Internet cable or, as per the manual, you had only one computer connected to it. In other words, is the configuration software loaded in the router or is it on the internet and thus the Internet line needs to be plugged in. Because, then, if I have to plug the Internet cable in, thus, what might occur is that are there are many router on the line, I am getting the configuration box of another router down the line.
    - Patrice.

    Ok as per manual. Just try to connect the power supply of the router without any other wire. Does it light in amber coz it say it doesn't receive enough power. Then check your power adaptor.

    Second as per manual its say Prestige 334 in web configurator. May I ask why your saying Netgear? Is it the original firmware or it uses netgear firmware? Or do you have other router?

    Third, how many computer does you connect in your Prestige router? And how they are connected to it, wireless or wired?

    And may I know from your bundled manual how to properly reset your router?

  • fougzki May 31, 2009

    I see, for basic setup of router it can actually run itself with only one computer, this acts like the maintenance input. Actually when you configure it first it must be like that, so that you cannot get interference from the outside.

    And the way you describe it, it could be your upstream line is also a router(say it is the netgear). And is set on default. And when you type you are actually routed in it. That is why you are flash in netgear configuration page. Just a thought.

The cable doesn't connect thru the router and it does without the router

It's hard to figure out what you mean with the lack of detail, but I'm assuming you mean, when you connect your computer to the modem, it connects to the internet, but when you use the router, the internet stops working.

Sounds like the router is either configured incorrectly or not at all. Try reading the owners manual on how to set it up:

Unable to ping static IP from remote desktop when

Does PING works on the same location where Camera's are located?

Usually, RDP connections uses the same PC on LAN and that should work fine. Please check Camera's configuration; make sure they have valid IP address, SM, Default gateway and DNS servers. Make sure that PC with enabled RDP can PING computers on the LAN either by IP address or Computer name. Make sure they're part of the same WORK GROUP.

Hope this helps! Please provide additional information so I can further assist you.

Trying to connect two computers to the internet through a router (not wireless) having problems after connecting both computers to the router, only one computer has internet connection. My internet...

Initially check whether the ip address is assigned in the computer in which internet is not browsing using the command ipconfig/all for windows and ifconfig for linux.If ip is present try to ping the default gateway ip address,if ping is success there is no issue in the cable you used and also with ip address.If ip is not assigned assign ip by manually or by using dhcp of router.Enable and disable the lan card in the router so that sometimes the problem get resolved.After ip is assigned and ping with router is ok .Ensure dns servers are correct else give google public dns server try to ping in command prompt if ping is success then you can browse.

Unable to connect with dlink300 router

You must configure first its settings both on your network card and router. See you manual.

First you must connect your internet directly to the computer then get its DNS settings, jot it down. Then connect the router lanport1 to lan card port of your computer using LAN cable. Under lan properties goto TCP/IP settings input the default IPaddress of the router then its subnet mask commonly, the router's default gateway, input the DNS settings of your ISP 2 of the set.

Then goto default router's utility web. Open internet explorer, key in router's ip add you should go to router's configuration log in user = admin, pass = just hit enter. Set your time and date then save. You could also test its connection by pinging the IP address of router. on windows DOS. Type ping you should get 4 lines.

If everything is set. Connect the internet cable(UTP/LAN cable) to its WAN port of the router then test to browse the internet. If not then change the DNS settings with the remaining set (on Lan setting).

If I miss something just leave a comment.

Connects but no internet connection being allowed through.

You should configure your Router as a "router" or as a bridge. Usually, you can access the router's IP via web service (using http://ip.address.of-this.router). In this web access, you can modify your router configuration to act as router or bridge, also you have to specify the DNS, DHCP configuration as well.
