ZyXEL Ethernet Bridge Won't Connect

I have two ZyXEL G-470 wireless ethernet adapters (bridges) which I am trying to connect to a Linksys WRT54GS router running Tomato firmware. The first bridge (either one, doesn't matter) links fine. The second refuses to link, or links sporadically. I can only get it to stay linked if I attach a wired cable to its WAN port and enter the admin console. It then links immediately. However, after a few days, the link becomes sporadic again, and eventually both bridges lose their links. I contacted ZyXEL tech support but they couldn't re-create the problem (they didn't have a Linksys router to test with). I even got a third bridge and it does the same thing.

I suspect the router, although it supports every other wireless device on my nextwork (I have 4) without a problem. I have tried different configurations on the ZyXELs (MAC cloning, static IP, DHCP, only b or only g modes ... with no success.

Suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, but already tried different channels on the router, including channel 1. I think, though, that you are on the right track in seeing this as a router problem, because changing channels did improve (but did not eliminate) the problem. I know that the Tomato firmware still uses the Linksys kernel, meaning that (to my thinking) the problem lies inbedded in the Linksys software. Can anyone add to this?

The i =ndications are quite clear it's a concern with router's wireless reception...try to reconfig wireless settings on your router change channel to 1 if still the same router is not sending wireless signals properly..

My wall-plug says it can't get in ip adress. It also says that it can't even connect to the network. Is this fixable? If yes, how? (P.S. This isused for my xbox by me, if that helps anything.)


The device is for "bridge the networks" each other PC,Laptop,etc...,is not a router.The device communicates with the router so you can have better "signal" between any device that want access to your network.

Hi,
Check the following steps to connect wireless linksys router :

First, you have to connect the router to the ADSL or the cable modem.

Your system has to be set in such a way that it will get its TCP/IP network settings from the router via DHCP.

Second, you need to configure the router to use your Internet service.

Connect the antennas to the Linksys wireless router. Connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port at the back of the Linksys router and it will establish a connection between your modem and router.

Connect another Ethernet cable between the computer and the router. Then connect the router to an electrical outlet.

When I connect the ethernet cable to my tower, I gave an orange light. What could be causing this to happen?


What Orange light are you refering to? You have an orange and green LED on the block of the Ethernet connecter, if the cable is plugged into the plug and the other end is terminated into another deive such as a modem,bridge,router or switch the orange light(led) should come on as that indicates a valdi link hence being called the link light, the green light(led) indicates data being received or transmitted. If orange flash with sparks(bad) from the plug it means there is power on the cable..very bad as this could be due to the ethernet card that is faulty or the device on the other end of the cable is faulty.

I have a lexmark c534n color laser printer that I want to make wireless. There are several products but I dont know which one to get. there is the n2050 wireless network card for 40.00 but I dont know if...


In my travels, I believe the matching brand for this type of architecture makes the best sense and Lexmark would be quicker to support any issues. Best bet is ti go with Lexmark 802.11b Wireless Print Adapter bridge ( 1010042 )
