Question about Zoom X6 Adsl Modem/router Rohs (5590-00-00BF)
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.

When you first set up your X6 wireless network, security is turned off by default. This means that your wireless signal is not encrypted and that anyone with compatible wireless technology can access your computer network and the Internet using your wireless connection.
To set up wireless security, you will create and enter a unique passphrase or an alphanumeric key. Once entered, only devices with the proper key or passphrase will be allowed to establish a connection to the network, which you may have already done.
There are two basic ways to configure and implement a passphrase or key. They are WPA (WiFi Protected Access) or WPA2 and WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) 64 and 128 bit. WPA2 is best, but you can use it only if all your wireless devices support the 802.11g profile, followed by WPA and WEP, in that order.
Setting Up Security Using WEP
Before proceeding, if you have not read our FAQ "Wireless Security - An Overview", please Click Here
If all of your network devices DO NOT support WPA2 or WPA, you can use WEP to configure network security.
WEP can be configured in two ways, 64-bit and 128-bit. 128-bit WEP provides a bit more security than 64-bit, but 128-bit WEP also tends to diminish network performance. We recommend that most people configure their WEP for 64-bit security.
A. If ALL of the wireless devices (clients) on the network are Zoom devices, you need to enter the Passphrase that you just created for each device. Every wireless network client needs to be set individually. Open the software that came with the device, which should be running on the computer where the device is installed. Find the configuration menu for security, choose WEP, and enter the Passphrase, exactly as you entered it on the X6 Wireless Setup page. Your security setup configuration is now complete!
B. If any or all of the other wireless devices on the network (clients) are not Zoom devices, you will enter one of the keys shown below the Passphrase on each client. You must enter the same key for each device. The key that you must use is the key corresponding to the Default Key number shown. If the number in the default key box is 1, use Key 1, and so on. You can choose the default key you prefer using the pull-down Default Key menu box.
Now that you have a key, enter it for each client. Every wireless network client needs to be set individually. Open the software that came with the device, which should be running on the computer where the device is installed. Find the configuration menu for security, choose WEP (64-bit or 128-bit depending on what you selected), and enter the Default Key, exactly as it appears on the X6 Wireless Setup page.
Your security setup configuration is now complete!
If you follow these instructions correctly, your internet light will beam correctly.
