Re: ZyXEL Wireless set up.

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.

Lose Internet connection on wireless network

Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.

Unable to connect my wifi laptop to my existing wireless b/band

Your wife's laptop is setup to connect to another wireless network. It must be set up now for the wireless network that you are trying to connect to. This means that your wife's laptop is trying to connect to the wireless network somewhere else. You need to let the laptop look for available wireless networks. It should be able to see your wireless network. It will then require you to enter the password that you have set in your Zyxel. If you don't know the password, call Zyxel.

I have zyxel nbg334w bought before xmas 08 can connect pc to internet with it but although wireless laptops and games consoles find it still wont connect i am connected to internet via virgin media...

Had the same problem connecting zyxel NGB334W to XBox 360. Other computers and devices would see the SSID but the XBox 360 would not. I had no luck talking to the techs at zyxel, they said it was incompatible with the wireless XBox device. Good news!!! This can be resolved. I went into the setup ( / Wireless Lan / Advanced / Wireless Advanced Setup. Under the 802.11 mode set to 802.11b. Factory is 802.11b/g and this was not seen. Hope this helps you out.

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.

Modem router

I can tell that your network topology is not the most complicated ever.So u ve got 3 terminals,1 desktop pc and 2 laptop.Simple,reset your zyxel(from the button on the back) and reconfigure the Local area interface connection(ip & subnet mask for the zyxel),reconfigure your internet connection,(WAN zyxel interface) in case the zyxel is your Internet gateway too.Third,make sure NAT & Firewall are up and running(usually are by default) Finally,reconfigure the WiFi interface with the correct SSID name & WEP key or whatever security you prefer.Write down the security pass for your wireless and you are done.Good Luck.

Zyxel Modem Router P660hw wont work on LAN

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!

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.
