Re: setting up my wirless that a bought for christmas

When you connect your computer directly to your DSL modem with an ethernet cable are you still able to access the internet?

If so we need to see if your DSL modem is assigning IP addresses from the same subnet as your new router.

With your computer connected to your cable modem click Start and then Run (Windows XP) and type "cmd" (no quotes) in the box and hit the enter key. A black window should open. In the window type the following and hit enter "ipconfig /all" Please write down the following items:
1. Description
2. IP Address
3. Default Gateway

Once completed connect your computer to one of the 4 LAN ports on your router, restart your computer and run the same test again then write down the same 3 items.

Please post the information here when complete.

Im having a zyxel wireless usb adapter and im playing alot of games. and i have to change my nat or whats it called to open network. how do i do?

If the ZyXEL device you have is a USB adapter then that is not the device you need to look at to change NAT settings. Either the wireless router or possibly your modem will need to be set up to allow the ports your games need in order to connect. Which ever device you have with the internet connection coming to it is where you will need to look at changing settings.

I have a new earthlink zyxel modem and am having problems configuring my linksys router with it. When I go to192.168.1.1 I am only able to configure the modem and not the router

Disable the modem first, then dial in to your router. Your modem IP should be set to When you reconnect, the router should be connected to your router. I have the same set up but I connect my modem to the router by cable. Saves a lot of complications with conflicting radio signals.

How do you access WPA Key Settings on a ZyXEL modem?

To access Zyxel configuration/setup utility, launch a web browser (Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, or Netscape, etc.) on your computer, type in (default IP address for most Zyxel wireless devices) in your Internet browser's Location/Address bar, and then press Enter on your keyboard. 
If presented with a user authentication (login) screen, try the following:

Default Username - Zyxel Wireless Router: N/A (none, leave blank)
Default Password - Zyxel Wireless Router : 1234 

If you cannot login using the above, verify that (a) you are entering your password correctly, and that (b) your CAPSLOCK key is off. It could also be due to the firmware (a set of instructions stored on an EEPROM microchip) on your Zyxel product being corrupt. If so, you would need to reset your Zyxel WiFi router to its factory default settings.

IMPORTANT: Do not forget to promptly secure your Zyxel router (using a strong password, a non-obvious WEP Key, etc.) following a reset to factory default settings. Failing to do so may potentially expose your entire WLAN to scammers.

*Your vote is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

ZyXEL adsl wirless modem router P660HW

To bring up the blue screen you need to open internet explorer (or whatever) and type the ip address given. In my book it says after that you should get the blue screen. You can set up the connection then.
