Re: configuration settings for the zoom x6

When connected to your local network, open your browser and type in and hit enter. A password screen will appear - type in "admin" for the username and "zoomadsl" for the password (without inverted commas).

Click "basic setup" then click "start" which will configure your settings. If it says it can't configure them, turn off your anti-virus and firewall then try again. If it still doesn't work set the protocol to "PPPoE" and VPI to "0" and VCI to "38" then type in your username and password you received from your ISP. Remember your username is an e-mail address so should end in "" i.e, etc.

Then click "write settings to flash" and wait for a ridiculously long time. Your internet light may flash green then disappear then go red for ages but eventually (providing you have entered your correct ISP details) it will come on.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.

Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button

Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example:

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

After installing the router it was working fine. I went in to set up wireless security and now the internet light stays red.

Probably means that the security is turned on, if the wireless doesn't work even after you have entered the right password then press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to restore it to defaults - factory defaults just like it was first powered on.

you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straight forward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.

if you need more information please email me at

please rate if the answer solved your porblem.
thank you

Zoom X6 Adsl Router

You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6 router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.
  1. Assign a Static IP address on the Xbox 360 console:
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
    • Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following settings:
      • IP Address: (or any 10.0.0.x IP address, where x is between 100 and 250)
      • Subnet Mask:
      • Gateway:
    • Select Done, to go back to the Edit Settings screen.
    • Select DNS Settings. The Edit DNS Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following setting:
      • Primary DNS Server:
      • It is not necessary to enter a Secondary DNS Server.
    • Select Done.
    • Power down your Xbox 360.
  2. Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:
    • From a computer that is connected to the Zoom X6, open a web browser and type in the address line and then press Enter (or Return).
    • Enter the User Name and Password (in lowercvase letters):
      • User Name: admin
      • Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
  3. Create a Virtual Server rule to put the Xbox 360 on a DMZ:
    • In the Zoom Configuration Manager, click on the Advanced Setup icon at the top page.
    • Click on the Virtual Server/DMZ button.
    • On the Virtual Server/DMZ page, enter the following settings:
      • Internal IP Address: (or whichever Static IP address you selected per Step 1)
      • Protcol: DMZ
      • Start Port: 0
      • End Port: 0
    • Click Save Changes
    • Click the Enable box, if you have this option.
    • Click Write Settings to Flash
  4. Plug the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter in to the Xbox 360 console. If you are not sure how to do this, please refer to the manual that came with the Adapter.
  5. Select the Zoom wireless network on the Xbox 360. (Note: The following steps assume you have a working wireless network with WEP or WPA security enabled and you know the Key and SSID of the network. If you have not done this, please refer to theFAQ on setting up a wireless network with the Zoom X6.)
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Wireless Network.
    • Enter the SSID of your network
    • Enter the Security Key for your wireless encryption. This must be either WPA or WEP. If you use WEP, you must enter the HEX digits for the Key you are using.
    • Power the Xbox 360 off, wait a few seconds, and then power the Xbox 360 back on.
    • Go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings.
    • Select Test Xbox Live Connection. If everything is configured correctly, all the tests will show Pass.
  6. Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.

DSL light flashing constantly


I had the same problem to begin with. Here is what the Zoom helpdesk suggested:
"To force the dsl light to stop blinking, please follow these steps.

1) Open up your web browser and type in the address bar. Type in the the username and password to log in to the modem.
username: admin
password: zoomadsl

2) When you get to the address bar, Click on advance setup.

3) Click on ADSL Configuration.

4) Change the standard to G.Dmt and change the activate line to Start.

5) Save changes and then write settings to flash.

Within a 1 or 2 minutes, the dsl light should go solid."

This worked for me. Good luck.

the internet light, is usually a blinking green, showing that it's seeing the internet signal. The only reason it's red, is cause there's no net signal..double check the phone line going into the back of your router, and change it if you need to.

Zoom adsl x6

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue

presuming that the router moved with you the telephone line socket could be too far away from the BT socket or is not correctly wired. if you have not moved the router then you need to buy a booster
