    I wonder if anyone

    can help me out. I am trying to install a Zyxel NBG334W in Windows Vista via a Netopia broadband modem (eircom.net).

    The problem is when the Ethernet cable from the modem to the PC is connected through the router; it shows as “unidentified network” and disconnects me from the Internet. I’ve gone as far as doing a clean install of Vista and NOT installing Norton Internet Security, and turning off Windows Firewall, but still the same outcome. Unidentified Network message and not allowed access to the Internet.



    Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    have you successfully installed the wireless adapter to your computer? in the instruction manual of your wireless router, does it require for you to configure it via hardwire connection or can you configure it wirelessly right away.

I got a zyxel wireless router and was able to plug it into my eircom connection without much hassle.

Step1 - configure the wireless router.

This involves connecting the ethernet cable from the zyxel to your computer. Once your ethernet cable is connected to your pc, you can setup the router by opening your favourite browser and typing in this http://192.168.1.1

That will open a "welcome to zyxel setup" page and you need to enter in a password to get in...check the documentation that came with the zyxel but I think the default is

username: admin
pass: 1234

STEP 2

Once you get past the login stage, you are effectively connected to the zyxel control panel where you can configure your wireless and broadband settings. I used the wizard which steps you througn each step....including setting a nickname for your wireless router and the security phrase.

On the advanced settings page, here are the settings for eircom (under the broadband->network option):

Username: eircom
Password:
broadband1
Encapsulation: PPPoE
Multiplexing:
LLC Based
VPI: 8
VCI:
35
Primary DNS: 213.94.190.194 *
Secondary DNS: 213.94.190.236 *

* I didn't need to set those...I simply selected "detect IP address automatically".

I hope that helps others. I bought a second hand zyxel on ebay and it came this morning without a manual, so I stumbled my way through it with the help of google. My zyxel was a p-600 so I'm not sure if the control panel will vary with other models...the key thing is using http://192.168.1.1 in your browser, with your ethernet cable attached between your router and computer, to "get into" the router in the first place, once there, you should be able to walk through the setup without too much grief.

This is my first wireless router, so I can't say whether they make great routers or not - I've nothing to compare it to - but, it does exactly what it says on the tin for me.

cheers

Secutiry issue


You will need to access your router and configure your wireless settings. If you are uncertain about the password/username to access the router 0 then you might find it on label at the backside of the router.

Failing this - the favourite combinations are :

Username admin

Password admin

or sustitute "password" (without the quotes) as the password. If that does not work then you could "google" the question.

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 (192.168.1.1) / 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.
