Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I installed a new Zoom ADSL X6v Model 5697 router. It was working fine, including the wireless signal (I had been using it unsecured for about six hours). I decided to add WEP security. I connected a hardline to the router and entered the IP address (192.168.0.1), entered the user name and password, and clicked on ?Wireless Setup?. On the wireless set up page I: Changed the SSID Left the default channel on 10 Selected WEP 64 bit encryption Checked the box and entered a passphrase Left the default key at 1 Clicked the ?Save Changes? button (keys appeared) Clicked the ?Write to Flash? button Then it gets a little hazy. The written instructions say no more ? but this didn't work ? the internet light was red. Then I noticed on the ?Wireless Setup? page, it said that after clicking on ?Write to Flash?, you had to press the ?Reboot? button. I found a reboot button on the ?Router Setup? page and clicked it. Nothing. Tried resetting the router. Nothing. Tried removing power from the router for 60 seconds. Nothing. Tried changing the channel to 5. Nothing. My internet light still glows a maddening shade of red.

I think the router firmware is not working properly.
Some routers need power cycle ( reboot ) after any changes on the router settings.
Now make sure that you are getting IP address on the internet part of the router.
When you set up WEP and passphrase , Your actual password for the wireless network will be the number in the key number 1 box and NOT the passphrase.

I no longer have the install software, how can I set up wep for my unsecured router?


You dont need the Software to do this - you can setup routers manually - by logging into them - to start lets find the correct online manual - this is the start of getting an online manual http://www.zoom.com/techsupport/adsl/adsl_5590cf.shtml Page 28 - shows how to setup the wireless security also shows details on page 13 how to login to the router - using 10.0.0.2 in an internet explorer address bar - now these are quite OLD settings - so they may still be valid or a firmware update may have changed - to check - on the PC do the following start>run {vista/7 search box}>CMD>ipconfig --- you should see a number next to default gateway if its 10.0.0.2 then thats the same as the manual - but it may start 192.168.x.x ---- so that maybe the number you need to enter into the webpage NEXT - the default username and password --- from page 14 of manual then goto the wireless section and set the WEP security you require

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

Mac router compatability Zoom ADSL X6


Remember it takes two to tango, so the issue may just as well be in the iMac as in the Zoom X6... Regardless of that, I had the same problem (PC works fine, iMac and PC both get flaky when the iMac is powered up). Zoom tech support suggested trying RF channels 1, 6, or 11. The router was using channel 10, changing to channel 11 calmed things down. Zoom said there wasn't anything magic in those numbers, but their testing showed those channels worked best with the Apple products.

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting


Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.
