Question about Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem (55900003)

Zoom X6 fail connect to Nintendo DS Lite

The nintendo people are stumped and assigned me
to one of their specialists who has never called.
I thought i'd give this a shot.

I use ATT/SBC DSL service and the connection
is fine on the computers in the house.


:the Zoom firmware is completely up to date.
: Zoom router is set to 802.11 b&g special for the DS
:on the zoom I have switched it to be WEP
:got the WEP Key - just fine
:manually assigned the DS an IP address by adding 10
to the IP address of my main compy in the house.
:changed the Wireless channell to either 1 or 11
:double checked that the SSID is broadcasting correctly
:triple checked that all the manual info in the DS is correct
:I point the DS directly at the Router with no obstacles
in the way, sitting 5 feet away.
:I do NOT have cordless electronics or the microwave on
or even near the DS
: i restart my router a few times in the mix just in case.
The DS sees the SSID and the router.
The DS has a full green signal while attempting
to test the connection. The DS errors out saying
the access point is fine but could not reach the
server.
:I bite the bullet and take ALL security off the Zoom X6
and I still get the same error.
: i turn off and unplug ALL other devices from the router
so that the DS wifi is the only possible connection
nada. zip. zero.
: i use just one device so I can play with the router
settings at the same time as the DS
nope. Nada 3

    I fixed it. it was an issue with router setting.

    Change the 802.11 b +g to Mixed Long

    on channel 11 and you're good to go.

  • gideonkain Apr 26, 2008

    Sam I've turned off all encryption, set to MIXED_LONG on Channel 11, incremented IP Address by 10 - and it keeps giving me error 51300

  • Mayren Apr 26, 2008

    Under Zoom's Wireless setup
    Hide SSID is set to FALSE
    Default Channel must be set to 1 or 11 (mine is 11)
    THIS IS HELLA IMPORTANT: the Profile
    must be changed from 802.11 to what Zoom
    calls "Mixed Long".
    Set the encryption to WEP

    You MUST manually enter your IP addy, subnet mask,
    primary/secondary DNS into the Nintendo DS.
    Most of the info is on the System Status page of
    the Zoom router info ... the DNS info is on the
    Advanced Setup page under the DNS button.
    -------------
    Make sure you assign your DS an IP address that is
    higher than normal so it cannot interfere with your
    other devices. I used 10.0.0.30 and it works nicely.
    -------------

    That's it. when you test the connection it works
    bravo! Be aware that cordless phones and Microwaves
    DO affect the connections of download play AND wifi
    play of the Nintendo DS.


    The Gateway IP is usually 10.0.0.2 for this router.
    If you have any other questions on this router with the DS let me know. I've just been through it all and can now do it with ease.

    Gideonkain-

    here's the difference

    My firmware is the 2.1.5 version because my modem is the x6 that is NOT color coded. There are a couple of software differences. yes. but the essentials are close to the same.



    Check out this website to see that there are 2 main types of modems.http://www.zoom.com/techsupport/adsl/ads...



    Now for your modem please referr to the manual. here.

    It's super easy to follow.

    http://www.zoom.com/techsupport/adsl/ads...



    if you ever need some help that's real time (trust me

    sometimes it's necessary) I can give you my IM nick name.

    perhaps that might help? I have done this with 2 others to success. just a thought.

  • gideonkain Apr 28, 2008

    I also have the non color coded x6...best buy?! :)

    Its a terrific router - but when I downbload the firmware and try to install it is says it contains no firmware data, course this is another problem, unless having that exact verison is the only way to get DS working

  • gideonkain May 11, 2010

    What firm ware does yours say?
    on System Status mine says:





    Firmware Version:
    Zoom X6 Ver 5.0.2-00

Ds lite wi fi connect wpa


Try changing your WiFi encription to WEP or no security, this should be available on your cablemodem/router web internface (need a user and password for that) under the Wireless/Security option.

DS Lite is not compatible with any other WiFi encription for online gaming: "Important note about the Nintendo DSi and WPA security: While the Nintendo DSi is compatible with WPA security, Nintendo DS games with online play still require the use of WEP or no security to connect with the Nintendo WFC. Therefore, your connection settings for using these games must be set up on slots 1-3.

I have a Motorola SURFboard Gateway SBG6580 modem. I want to use the wireless for my DS lite but it says that I need an WEP key, but I don't know how to enable it. Help!


Your wireless is set up with a password. You need to get that password before you can connect any more devices. From a computer that can connect to the internet go to 192.168.0.1. Then type admin for the username and motorola for the password. I believe from there you click Wireless then click Primary Network. You should see your wireless network name and password from there. I'm getting this from the modems manual here: http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf

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.

Light on Zoom modem out


Is there any Nintendo DS user around you?

Zoom has pre-defined security / short cut to let Nintendo user to connect to the Internet

If there is no Nintendo user around you then I would not worry about this setting/feature.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

I cannot connect my ds lite with zoom wireless


Sometimes they will put the wep key on the router. It should be a 10 digit number. You could also try resetting the router. There should be a very small hole in the back of the router. Stick a paper clip in it and hold down the button for 10 - 15 sec. Good Luck

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 zoom.com/x6 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

ADSL Zoom x6 5590 DNS 360 Problem


Yes the router assigns an internal IP address. connect it up then using your PC go into the configuration of your router (http://10.0.0.2) and look under system status, scroll to the bottom and under DCHP status you will see a list of all clients connected. Your Xbox will be listed along with its internal IP address.

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 frcs68@hotmail.com

please rate if the answer solved your porblem.
thank you

Zoom X6 Adsl Router


You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6 router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.
  1. Assign a Static IP address on the Xbox 360 console:
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
    • Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following settings:
      • IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or any 10.0.0.x IP address, where x is between 100 and 250)
      • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
      • Gateway: 10.0.0.2
    • Select Done, to go back to the Edit Settings screen.
    • Select DNS Settings. The Edit DNS Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following setting:
      • Primary DNS Server: 10.0.0.2
      • It is not necessary to enter a Secondary DNS Server.
    • Select Done.
    • Power down your Xbox 360.
  2. Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:
    • From a computer that is connected to the Zoom X6, open a web browser and type http://10.0.0.2 in the address line and then press Enter (or Return).
    • Enter the User Name and Password (in lowercvase letters):
      • User Name: admin
      • Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
  3. Create a Virtual Server rule to put the Xbox 360 on a DMZ:
    • In the Zoom Configuration Manager, click on the Advanced Setup icon at the top page.
    • Click on the Virtual Server/DMZ button.
    • On the Virtual Server/DMZ page, enter the following settings:
      • Internal IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or whichever Static IP address you selected per Step 1)
      • Protcol: DMZ
      • Start Port: 0
      • End Port: 0
    • Click Save Changes
    • Click the Enable box, if you have this option.
    • Click Write Settings to Flash
  4. Plug the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter in to the Xbox 360 console. If you are not sure how to do this, please refer to the manual that came with the Adapter.
  5. Select the Zoom wireless network on the Xbox 360. (Note: The following steps assume you have a working wireless network with WEP or WPA security enabled and you know the Key and SSID of the network. If you have not done this, please refer to theFAQ on setting up a wireless network with the Zoom X6.)
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Wireless Network.
    • Enter the SSID of your network
    • Enter the Security Key for your wireless encryption. This must be either WPA or WEP. If you use WEP, you must enter the HEX digits for the Key you are using.
    • Power the Xbox 360 off, wait a few seconds, and then power the Xbox 360 back on.
    • Go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings.
    • Select Test Xbox Live Connection. If everything is configured correctly, all the tests will show Pass.
  6. Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.
