See there might be network key set up on the wireless modem already, you will need to check what the network key is ? For this you will need to access the set up interface of the modem/ router. Is there any computer connected to the router ? or is there any other computer able to go online ? use that computer to find out the key. Click Here for more info about how to find the key
When you defined the name for Wireless connection with you new router, did you give it a new name? If this is a case then you can delete the old name in your available wireless network list in your lap top so it won't go back to the default one which is the old one, then you are all set.
You have to set different ip address. To clear this up this how I got my setup. I have verizon internet. I use a westell 6100g modem, I have the local ip address set for 192.168.1.1 and I got a linksys wireless router and the ip address set for 192.168.9.1. Then I plug my modem into the wan port and it works. What am I doing is setting a static ip address from my modem to the router and using the router to distribute my address through the network. If you have any printers on the network you need to change that numter to 192.168.9.x number. If you don't have two different numbers set the router will take over.
did you setup a wireless network ? if you didnt go to control panal and then wireless network setup icon and follow instructions (select automatically provide network key option) then follow instructions and finish. once you did that, search through wifi on youf phone it should find your WNetwork and then connect and enjoy. if you want to use internet and have an ADSL modem, make sure that the modem is connected to the internet RJ45 plug on your router. and from router to PC.
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.
If a LAN connected PC will not work while a wireless laptop is connected you need to go into advanced router setup, bandwidth management, and untick the three boxes labeled "active" to disable the band width management. Easy!
I have not seen this issue before and I work directly with this modem on a daily basis. If its under warranty, then get a replacement. If not... Test the modem with wireless enabled, but wireless security disabled.
