Question about Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router

2 Answers

Simultaneous PS3 and 'net connection probs.

I have recently purchased a zyxel P660HW router. The main reason for purchase being that my son could play online on his ps3 which is in a different part of the house to the computer. the router works fine when accessing the internet (although downloads seem a lot slower than when through the previous modem). The problem is that when I then turn on the PS3 the device does not detect its presence unless I restart the computer and restart or reset the router. Once I have done this it then plays online fine. Then when I try to access the internet on my PC it gives me a 703 error unable to connect. then I have to restart my pc and reset router to access the net again, then the bleeding PS3 won't play online and so on. Please help. I have spoken to other people who can play online games fine and access the net at the same time. I have rung numerous different 'help' desks which have cost a small fortune, none of which have helped me with the problem. The last one I rang was Currys where I purchased the thing from who said there was something wrong with the router. So I took it back and exchanged the thing to no avail. Same problem exists.

Re: Simultaneous PS3 and 'net connection probs.

Further to previous you understand correctly. The computer is using a wired connection, the PS3 connects wirelessly. Computer is windows XP. Don't know what firmware is, sorry.

Zyxel P660HW-D1 Router. Which settings need to be changed to turn it into a repeater and connect with my main broadband router.

Can't use a router as a repeater in a wireless sense. You could set it to AP mode and run an ethernet cable from a lan port on your other router to the WAN/uplink port on the Zyxel. If it doesn't have AP mode then you could have it in gateway mode run have a different subnet on the Zyxel with DHCP.

My nat type is strict and when i try to play my PS3 i have connection issues. How would i get my nat type to be open?

Zyxel routers don't support Nat 2 confirgurations for the PS3 software. You can fix some issues by powrforwarding the speciffic ports that the PSN uses. To do so follow this ismple guide:

It may vary from game to game so you should choose what speciffic product are you trying to use here:

Hi there! i have a zyxel ph660-f1z and since it doesnt suport dmz i get nat type moderate on my ps3 so it gives a lot of trouble.... i have tried port fordwarding,upnp,default server but nothing seems to...

Sometimes not just the dmz or port configurations cause your nat settings to be other than open, you may not have good internet connection, the better it is the more you will open. Most routers are open by default, and those others need to be forwarded(like you wrote) with the upnp open and specific ports for xbox/ps3 servers opened. You seem to know a little already, maybe time to get a new router?,I recently upgraded myself due to problems with configuration.

Nat type changes back on ps3

you need to make sure that when you change it that you apply in your modem setup page that bridge mode is activated so that it turns it into a dumb unit allowing just to pass through the internet stream thus allowing constant nat 2 connection

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.

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!
