Need Zoom X6 help unresponsive

I'm trying to install a Zoom x6 modem/router but the installation software only reports "Zoom ADSL Modem Not Found", no matter which route i take, auto detect, choose, or manual.

I have the settings right, which worked with another router, pppoa, 0, 38.
I'm trying to stall it on a Vista machine but since this did not work i'm also trying an XP one.

I do not get a responce from either, power light, ethernet and dsl lights are all solid.

I haven't been able to find any drivers on the disc or over the net to do it manually either, I really need some help please.

Make sure your ethernet port is set to 'obtain address' and 'DNS' automatically (IE use DCHP and not static IP address) The software should be able to 'find' the zoom modem then.

Is the Zoom ADSL X6 modem router supposed to provide connectivity for a 3G Kindle? If so, how do I set things up?

Zoom X6 routers don't work with either Kindles or Nooks- it seems the connect on demand to save power confuses the Zoom router - typically requiring the unpractical fix of rebooting the router every two minutes.

I have a Zoom X6 ADSL modem that keeps dropping my internet signal. How can I correct this?

is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

X6 won't pick up DSL

hopefully you haev installed the software first on yoy computer>
turn off the computer. connect the phone line one end to the ethernet port on your computer and the other end to one of the LAN port on the x6.
power up the (power cube shipped with the X6), the Pwr and the WLAN should come on and become steady, the LINK light should blink,
turn on you computer, connect a new phone line between ADSL port and the wall jack, the LINK light should become steady.

please rate the answer if it solved your porblem.
thank you

Zoom X6 installation

you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straight forward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.

if you need more information please email me at

please rate if the answer solved your porblem.
thank you

Zoom adsl x6

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue

presuming that the router moved with you the telephone line socket could be too far away from the BT socket or is not correctly wired. if you have not moved the router then you need to buy a booster
