I had an P660HW-D3 router, and both Wired as wireless worked fine.
Due to induction in the LANcables, the router was damaged.
I got a new one form my insurance company.
When I connected thsi new one I've problems with wiressless connections to my laptop.
I defined a new ESSID, WPA-RSK in the router and on my laptop
The first time I connected the Laptop everything went very smooth.
But after the laptop went to sleep mode and came back again, I could not connect again. Only after "restore" the wireless connection, switching the router of and on several times, I managed to connect again. This is reproducable.
What canbe the case ?

Re: Wireless Problems Zyxel P660HW-D3
When you defined the name for Wireless connection with you new router, did you give it a new name? If this is a case then you can delete the old name in your available wireless network list in your lap top so it won't go back to the default one which is the old one, then you are all set.

Make sure to install the USB adapter's driver and utility. If it's installed, you need to use the Belkin WLAN Utility to connect to the wireless network. You should be able to find the signla coming the router and you can connect to it
WIRELESS Look in your manual for a method to set wireless security to WPA. Choose a non-obvious encryption key and make it long for best security. WEP will not secure your wireless. You may also consider not broadcasting your SSID.
WIRED Don't use the DMZ. It great reduces your security. Close any ports that you are not using. Use a password for your router and don't enable remote adminsistration.
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.
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.
If a LAN connected PC will not work while a wireless laptop is connected you need to go into advanced router setup, bandwidth management, and untick the three boxes labeled "active" to disable the band width management. Easy!
First many current PC models have switches to power on the wireless feature. Do you have one of those and did you power on the wireless.
Second wireless devices communicate on four different bands A, B, G, N. Some devices support multiple bands. Does your wireless router/access point (maybe a Zytel p660HW-D1 from above) support at least one of same bands as your laptop built-in or purchased wireless adapter? If you do not know post the manufacturer of the wireless router/access point, laptop if the wireless is built-in or wireless adapter if it is a separate device and I will check that for you.
