    Yes - same: desktop gets knocked off Internet connection when another device (laptop or smartphone) logs onto the wi-fi router. Tried quiet a lot of things including, sadly, using the Netword Wizard on the desktop XP whose settings I would happily delete but cannot.

    But, now very happy at finding MalfoyKaine's suggestion. Which works for me. 10 out of 10 and have book marked this site for life. Spot on.

    Can you determine what firmware version your router is using? The user manual (on disc?) should have information about finding the current firmware version.

This has nothing to do with firmware!

You need to login to the router (http://192.168.1.1) and select the advanced setup, on the left hand side of the screen you will see some words written in blue (network, maintenance, security etc) select the "advanced" one and then "bandwidth mgmt" there are 3 lines here (LAN, WLAN and WAN). Untick all the "Active" boxes and click "apply".

Logout and reboot both your computers........problem solved!

For that you need to change wireless channel type in router. You can also configure it with below method.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless->wireless channel type to 3 or 6 or 11 then save settings and restart router. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

while your computer is directly connected to the router, try to change the channel to 1,6 or 11. Try to enable wireless security and disable firewall on your computer. try to turn off other wireless device that may cause interference on your network

Zyxel P660HW with vista issues


If you are connecting via usb you will need to install all software and drivers on your pc before plugging modem in. If you did install them already you may need to reinstall
If you connect through ethernet (RJ45 terminated network cable), you may have a firewall preventing regular acess to network.

solutions

1) restart pc and modem it may work just with this

2)USB only: reinstall all modem software, then restart all.

3)Ethernet only (network cable), |Restart all and disable firewall. If this does not work you may need to change network settings on your computer (fo example change IP from static to dynamic).

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.
