Question about Zyxel Prestige P-330W Wireless Router (P330W)

1 Answer

Connection problems After 5/10 minutes of excellent connection and performance my pc suddenly becomes offline and wants to connect to my previous dial up connection. I have corrected the settings so that dial up is not the default option and to 'never dial a connection', however it still wants to do it. I then no longer have any broadband connection and am continually offered to connect via dial up. The broadband connection then becomes totally random - one minute connected then not. I then can no longer get any connection and have to switch off the pc for a while before it becomes available again, then I go through the whole situation again. HELP!

Re: Connection problems

Try scanning your computer for viruses or malware. this is a common symptom when a computer is compromised by a virus or malware and the culprit has somehow configured your computer to connect via dial up.

connect your computer to the router by an ethernet cable. Open Internet explorer or FIREFOX. Type the roiuter's default IP-address (if not known: its either or or or keep trying until you're answered and asked for the password to enter the router (either attached on the router, in the manual or try: user: admin password: admin or password: password. Whgen you're in you'll find many checkboxes you could fill oput or notr; Easyway: give your net a name (SSID), then choose the network access security (set it to wpa-psk), choose a password and enable DHCP (then the router does the rest). Disconnect, look if the computer sjhows reception of your netwoirk by displaying its name. then connect. You will be asked for the password you chose. Done.

Getting error 721 on my laptop what does this mean

error 721 is for a dial up connection. If your using a belkin router open the control panel on your pc and find internet options. Click connections at the top.. the connections you see in this window are for dial up modems. click on each one in turn and remove it. Your pc is trying to use a dial up connection and not your wireless router. This should fix the problem

Can you check if you have problems with your internet connection?
How about your browser? i recommend using mozilla firefox browser because i assure that it it the fastest browser.

If you have no problems with your internet connection probably you may want to check if your device are working properly.

The type of Internet connection you use is the most important factor in determining your connection speed. The three most common ways to connect to the Internet from home are dial-up, DSL, and cable. If you have a choice, cable is usually the fastest, but both DSL and cable are faster than dial-up.

The health of your computer can affect your Internet connection.Spyware and viruses can definitely cause problems, but your Internet connection speed can also be affected by add-on programs, the amount of memory the computer has, hard disk space and condition, and the programs that are running.
Two of the most frequent causes of poor Internet performance are spyware and viruses. Spyware can slow your system by interfering with your browser and monopolizing your Internet connection. Spyware monitors your Internet use and keystrokes, which adds delays. The problem is compounded when there are multiple spyware programs running at the same time. If the problem is severe enough, you can lose connectivity altogether. To get your Internet performance back, you should regularly run an antispyware program to clean out any spyware infestation.

Computer viruses can also cause poor Internet performance. When a virus infects a computer, it installs computer code which will attempt to propagate itself, usually by sending copies of itself through e‑mail. Some viruses can multiply at the rate of hundreds of e‑mail messages per minute, which leaves little computing power and Internet connection bandwidth for anything else. Viruses often do not give any obvious indication that they are running, so it is best to run your antivirus software at all times.

Thank you : ) i hope my information works.
Please pm me if none of the options work. :)

Gateway appears to be offline

It is best to use the reset button on the router to start over.
if it then connects you will have to reset all the passwords and setting you had previously.

Does your wireless router supply DNS addresses via DHCP or are they configured into the wireless adapter on the other computer? If the DNS addresses are configured into the working laptop's wireless adapter and not the router -- they may need to be configured into the wireless adapter of the new laptop. Is there a proxy server configured into the browser of the new machine that should not be there or does not match the working machine? Is the new laptop statically configured to an inappropriate IP address or gateway or DNS servers for the network you are attempting to use it on.

If your ISP is not having problems typically a router will just need a reboot to make it start working again. Simply unplug the power cord to it, wait 10-15 seconds, plug back in and try it again.
