Laptop does not detect wireless from Zyxel 660 router

I have a Zyxel 660 router from Post Office broadband. My Iphone and office laptop (dell winXP) get the signal from the router and i can access the internet, but the other two laptops (lenovo and HP, winXP) in my home and a Nintendo DSi do not manage to catch the signal, it does not show up at all. The internet works fine when connected directly to the lan cable. I have checked all the configurations on the router but i cant seem to find the problem. anyone else has had any issues like this?

Disable the network adapters on the laptop via device manager and then enable again. If this does not work reinstall the network drivers and see whether it helps.

All the best!

I would guess that all the other wireless routers are broadcasting using the G wireless standard 802.11g and your router is only broadcasting using the newer N 802.11n standard. Your laptop only supports B/G. Check your settings on your router and either change it to G or dual G/N mode so your older laptop can find the network

you said the laptop is connected to the network.
when you try to connect to the wireless network on the i-touch or i-phone, do you see your network.
if your network is secured then you must enter the correct password for the wireless. If you are not sure about the wireless key or the password then you will need to open the router set up page and check the wireless settings.
you can also try to upgrade the firmware ( software) of the router.

make sure that the linksys VOIP(secure) router is broadcasting it's SSID or signal, otherwise it will not reflect even if you refresh the wireless network. If the router is broadcasting SSID but the lenovo laptop is not detecting it, try to re-install the wireless software for the laptop using the software from lenovo.com, just click Support then Downloads and drivers.

P660HW-D1 Router not working wireless


Problem with the Zyxel P-660?   I experienced:
1. laptop would see the wireless 660HW briefly and then it would disappear.   2. laptop would not see wireless at all. 3.  same issue with desktop when using USB wireless 11g dongle 4. no problem on wired connection (ethernet)
EASY solution!   if Zyxel is set to scan for a channel it will want to work on channel 13 nearly every time in a busy environment.
HP laptops and many receivers cannot recieve on 13 -  highest channel is 12.   
Pick on setting for the Zyxel which matches an available channel on your receiver.  Problem solved.

Dell laptop


Do you get an error message?
Can you connect with an ethernet cable?
Do you see the wireless icon in the system tray?
Have you used any encryption?
Is your wireless turned on?
These devices tend to be pretty fool proof. It might benefit you to start over, paying careful attention to the instructions, which can be confusing.
