Question about Zyxel Prestige 645M (AM408405) Bridge

1 Answer

I was helping a friend who has Earthlink DSL (a ZyXel DSL modem) to get her Linksys WRT160N wireless router working with the Earthlink modem. No luck. Earthlink won't help unless you pay $7.95/mo with a $55 fee if you cancel. Does anyone know what settings to input into the routers setup? I figure it is PPPoE but don't know if I need to input her user name and password, and the ISP's domain, etc. Any real help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dennis McNeel

Hello mcneel,

The router should use the ZyXEL P600 as it's DHPC Server. And review/update the ZyXEL WAN configuration as follows:

• Log on to the ZyXEL P600 browser configuration interface: 192.168.1.1
• Enter username/password: Default is username:admin - password:1234
• Click '+' by Network in the letf-hand panel
• Click WAN
• In the Internet Connection tab, select the following options:
...
Name - (Any Name)
Mode - (Routing)
Encapsulation - PPPoE
User Name - (ISP login username eg. MyName@isp.com)
Password - (ISP Login password)
Service Name - (Leave Blank)
Multiplexing - (LLC)
Virtual Circuit ID
VPI - (Leave Blank: Issued by ISP)
VCI - (Leave Blank: Issued by ISP)
IP Address
Obtain an IP Address Automatically - ([X] Check this option)
Static IP Address - (Not Selected)
IP AddressI - (Leave Blank)
Connection
Nailed-Up Connection - ([X] Check this option)
Connect on Demand Max Idle Timeout sec
...
• Click 'Apply' button
• Close the browser configuration interface page

Sync wrt54g2v1 router to modem?


Turn off the modem (i am assuming you are using a cable modem. if it is a DSL modem, this will not work) and the router. Turn the modem back on and wait until all the LED's on the front of the modem come on and blink or stay solid, then turn the router on. If it is DSL, you will have to refer to this page:

I just switched from cable modem to dsl modem..dsl modem gets on the internet when connected directly to computer..once connected to router doesnt connect to internet


Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working.
The DSL modem works on 2 different modes.
You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

Have a acer wireless laptop I can not configurate my linksys wireless wrt610n wireless router ' I tried both options using my exsisting dsl modem and just the linksys wireless router.


your internet service provider is DSL.
Is there any other computer which is able to go online ?
If this is the only computer then you will need to check the Internet through the modem.
Your computer should be able to go online when connected to the modem.
If not online then you should have user name and password for the ISP.
if you have other computer online through the modem, then you will need to check the settings of the router.
