    WEP code means if you want to secure your wi fi you need to enable WEP security then you can add password there.
    Then only those users can connect with your wifi wh know that wep code.

I have zyxel nbg334w bought before xmas 08 can connect pc to internet with it but although wireless laptops and games consoles find it still wont connect i am connected to internet via virgin media...


Had the same problem connecting zyxel NGB334W to XBox 360. Other computers and devices would see the SSID but the XBox 360 would not. I had no luck talking to the techs at zyxel, they said it was incompatible with the wireless XBox device. Good news!!! This can be resolved. I went into the setup (192.168.1.1) / Wireless Lan / Advanced / Wireless Advanced Setup. Under the 802.11 mode set to 802.11b. Factory is 802.11b/g and this was not seen. Hope this helps you out.

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

Cannot finish connecting


Hi fozzy211 - Please don't rate this 'til were finished. You've got two things going on. You said it's telling you to check the cables and then you say it's saying the router isn't from Verizon. Is it both? Are the cables hooked up correctly to your knowledge? We can fool Verizon's system. Let me know if you actually have two problems. For now I would only hook up one pc via wired until it's working. I'll await your response. Thanks.

Virgin broadband to laptop


Try setting a static IP on your computer with the DNS provided by the modem- to set this up contact Virgin and have them help you setup a static IP(or if you know how to set static IP on the computer use the same IP information you getting from the DHCP).
