Re: zyxel p660hw and g202 problem

I had an almost identical problem and contacted Tech support at Zyxel. They were excellent and the guy talked me through to a solution. The main issue related to 'Bandwith management' which defaults to active on the router configuration. Unset all three (Wan, Lan, Wlan) and see if it sorts out problem. Because of some other issues I did have to reset the router to start with and on the wireless client I unset 'Obtain IP address automatically' and used an IP address with the default gateway set to the router address. If this does not help, I would recommend talking to Zyxel Tech Support, the consultant I spoke to was brilliant.

Win XP manages my Zyxel G-202 and there was a problem that no ip-address was possible to get from Zyxel router. I added router gateway address to "Advanced TCP/IP settings" and now connection seems to work fine.

Re: zyxel p660hw and g202 problem

It seems that your router may not be configured properly, make sure that your router is configured in a pppoe mode , and when you connect your computer, do not use a connection manager(i.e) do not enter the user name and passwd, when you try to go online with the laptop and the desktop, just open ie and try top go online.. if it prompts for user name and passwd, try this steps top avoid it,

open internet explorer > click tools > click internet options > click connection > select never dial a connections > and if you have any icon under dialup[ and vpn , remove the icon, then it will not prompt for user name and passwd,
and you would be able to go online both wirted and wireless,

try this out and revert back in case of any issues..

I have ZyXell P660HW-T2 & a PC with XP but can not connect and have no cd?

The short answer is, it's a router - you don't need a CD - just hook up the ethernet cable or connect wirelessly. No software is needed outside the operating system.
Let me know what it is you are trying to do, and what you've tried so far, and the results, and I can help you further. Post this information as a reply here.

II have been trying to connect wirelessly my new HP lap top to an old series 600 but the computer can't connect even after entering the key. It works ok on cable.can any one help

1. your issue is due to a a wireless laptop is not compatible with the old router or
you may need a firmware upgrade.
2. the cold compute may be able to connect via a cord (Ethernet) but not wirelessly due to an outdated driver for the network card ( the card will need updated drivers also) if it is a wireless b card then the ability to us a WAP key will not be possible
because your card was designed to use WEP key.
3. a new wireless G card installed to the old PC will allow connectivity if the wireless card is backwards compatible.
4. most all PC's can connect via a Ethernet cord they are all designed that way and have not changed for the 20 or 30 years they have been in use.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

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.

Zyxel P660HW with vista issues

If you are connecting via usb you will need to install all software and drivers on your pc before plugging modem in. If you did install them already you may need to reinstall
If you connect through ethernet (RJ45 terminated network cable), you may have a firewall preventing regular acess to network.


1) restart pc and modem it may work just with this

2)USB only: reinstall all modem software, then restart all.

3)Ethernet only (network cable), |Restart all and disable firewall. If this does not work you may need to change network settings on your computer (fo example change IP from static to dynamic).
