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

2 Answers

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

Error code 52100


Hi there! There are a couple options you could try to solve this problem!

To solve this error :

I would first check Nintendo's special notes router infomation page located here.

  • If you can't locate your router on Nintendo's special notes router information page, log into your router and change the basic rate to 1-2 and the transmission rate to 2. Try to connect again.
  • You can try to manually assign an IP address to the Nintendo DS as another device may be sharing the same IP address of the Nintendo DS.
  • To manually assign an IP address to the Nintendo DS, on a PC click Start > Run > type CMD and press Enter > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. On Windows Vista, click Start > type CMD in the Start Search box > click on CMD icon > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. The IP address for the Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than your PC, for example 192.168.1.200 becomes 192.168.1.210. Also make sure that the correct DNS is the entered under the DS manual settings.
Hopefully one of these options is your answer and you can easily fix your problem! Good luck! If you need any further assistance I would suggest calling Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.

Getting Error code : 052000-1


Error Code: 052000 Our experience has shown that this error message is solved by performing a manual setup on the Nintendo DS. Please follow these steps:
The first thing you'll need to do is find out what IP address range you should be using. To do this:
  1. Click the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer.
  2. Next, you will need to access the command prompt. To do this:
    • Windows XP users click "Run."
    • Windows Vista users click inside the search bar.
  3. Type "cmd" into the box and press Enter.
  4. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press Enter. The IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS servers of the PC will be displayed.
The IP address you are going to assign to the Nintendo DS must be 10 digits higher than the PC's. (e.g., 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.110). The DS and PC must have different IP addresses.
Enter in the exact same values for your Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Secondary DNS. They must be the same for your Nintendo DS and for your PC.
  1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router Configuration page.
  2. Use the drop-down box on the left to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
  3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
  4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing the settings found in the Special Notes. Follow the instructions and test the connection.
You will now need to manually assign this new IP address to your Nintendo DS. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this on your Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite, please click here.
Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
If you try these steps and you get a different Error Code, please review the values that you entered carefully, since an incorrect manual setup will cause another Error Code to appear. If the 52000 Error Code persists, than the problem may be caused by a basic setting in your router such as transmission rate. Please carefully read the instructions below:
If you are still unable to connect, please call 1-800-255-3700 in the USA or Canada for more information.

I have a nintendo ds lite.however it fell on a pale with water. i asked a repair specialist and told me that the motherboard was corroded and charges me that much.do you know a repair center where i can...


Hello,

The mainboard of the DS will really cost you much. I suggest that you just get yourself a new DS lite instead of having it repaired. Trust me, doing this will save you from having head aches...

Replaced shell on DS Lite, after when turning on, green light comes on, screen flashes and DS shut down. What could be the problem?


Maybe a wire got connected wrong in the reconnection process. Maybe you could call or go to Nintendo support.

Nintendo ds lite has a broken hinge


You can buy a new plastic housing for your DS lite on many different sites. Some are great quality. If the DS still works (despite the broken hinge) it makes sense to replace the housing.
You should be able to find enough videos on youtube to learn how to disassembe the DS and not do any harm. Make sure that you buy a tri-wing screwdriver (also called a nintendo screwdriver).

Hope this helps

DS Lite flight mode?


The Nintendo DS LIte itself is in flight more or it's called "not connected". Unless you activated the Picto-Chat or any wireless games (Download Play, WiFi), the nintendo ds isnt emitting any wireless signals.

zoom x6 in full bridged mode Good Morning all, I have searched google and these forums, but can not seem to figure out what is going wrong with my port forwarding. Problem: Can not ssh to internal server. Setup: ADSL WAN line connected to the RJ11 jack on my Zoom x6 (model 5590C). Zoom router is currently set to FULL Bridged mode. Cat6 cable is connected to Port 1 on the Zoom router, the other end of the cable is connected to the WAN port of my WRT54GL (running Tomato v1.23). Other linux boxes are connected to the LAN ports of the WRT54GL. I am able to see the Internet from all computers on the Local Lan inside of the WRT54GL. In Tomato I see the Public WAN IP that is being passed to it via the Zoom router. WAN IP: 9x.xx.xx.xx LAN IP: 10.xx.xx.xx/28 LAN DHCP: is on and working correctly. Port forwarding->Basic->Has the following (lets use port 55555): On |||| Proto |||| Src Addr |||| Ext Prots |||| Int Ports |||| Int Addr |||| Description X |||| TCP |||| [left blank] |||| 55555 |||| 55555 |||| 10.xx.xx.14 |||| ssh server Now I have no special Iptable rules added to the WRT54GL as of yet... since I can't ssh in yet either.. The server have port 55555 entered in its /etc/ssh/sshd_config and I can access this by all computers on the internal LAN, so the server config is good. But I cannot access anything if I am coming in thru the WAN. nmap shows that all normal ports are filtered, which is good, but if I run: nmap -P0 -sV 9x.xx.xx.xx -p55555 The reply is also filtered. When I try to ssh to my WAN IP from the WAN it times out. Tomato logs are not seeing the attempted scans, though iptables is reporting 'DROP's from other things on the Internet. When I dump the Tomato Iptables config it appears to be right to me and unfortunately I did not bring a copy of them to work with me today. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything that I need to explain further or that is not clear in my post? ANY input on this would be GREATLY appreciated, even if its just a link to something that might help. Thank you all in advance!
