Wireless light is green but i don't receive any signal on my laptop?

I have connected actiontec wireless router to zyxel cable modem.power,wan,internt,ethernet and wireless lights are green on the actiontec wireless router but I don't get any wireless signals on my laptop.Laptop's wireless adapter is working fine as it catches other neighbourhood wireless signals.Moreover, I have checked with another laptop that actiontec wireless router doesnt appear to generate any wireless signals at all.If I connect laptop through ethernet to the modem, itnernet works fine.One more thing,Wireless router and modem still connected,if I connect laptop to wirelss router (same configuration which is used to set up wireless router first time), I can browse the internet on my laptop.

Please suggest me what to do?

    I have all my lights lit up on my router, but I am not able to connect to the net on my desk top or my lap top, did a hard reset, worked once and kicked my off after a few minutes saying I had a low signal.

Connect canon pixma printer to zyxel router

If the printer has wireless capability built in , no cables are necessary. Install the printer driver in the mac as a wireless connection. Connecting a printer to the router is pointless, unless you want to install the printer as a network printer, which would disable wireless.

My ISP is the post office in the uk. they sent me a zyxel 1429lov router. i never received a disk as we had the previous router model. the problem is the signal drops every couple seconds and the green...

I hope the the green Light your are talking is the ADSL light.
If the DSL light flickers and then cuts off that means the cable comes to your home is not good. Please ask the provider to check the cable and VPI/VCI settings/signals

How many lights should be on my westell model327w?

The Westell has several lights on the front that have various meanings

Power = When lit, this light indicates there's power to the router. It should be solid green.

Ethernet = When lit, this light indicates that the modem is communicating with your computer. This will be on only if you're using the Ethernet cable to connect the modem to your computer

Wireless = When lit, this light indicates that the wireless function of the Actiontec is working. This will only be lit if you're using the wireless function.

DSL = When lit, this light indicates the modem is speaking to the central office (phone company). When working, the light should be solid green.

Internet = When blinking, this light indicates that you're receiving information i.e., you're able to browse from site to site. This light will be blinking as you're receiving information.

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.

Play on xbox live via wireless

First your setup should be, wall (isp) > Actiontec DSL Gateway > Zyxel router > your computer

If that is already setup right, try the ip address of, some routers use this ip rather that

Hope that helps.

Actiontec wireless router

This is a Wireless Gateway not a router. Although the Actiontec website says that it uses NAT firewall like a router would.

If you do not get any green lights this usually means the wireless gateway is broken. Try plugging it into power but not the modem. Wait a few seconds. Are there any green lights?

If so, then the gateway is not configured correctly to work with your modem. You may have a smart modem. Call your ISP, for help.

If not, then it is probably a bad gateway. You can try to connect to the configuration web page that comes with the gateway. OR Power on the unit while holding down the Reset button for a minute. This will reset it to factory defaults.
