Question about Zyxel Prestige 660HW Wireless Router (PRESTIGE660HW)

Open Question

Xbox 360 cant find ZYXEL 660 wireless router

Hi I have this router which came with my ISP - Post office broadband extra.
I am trying to connect my Xbox 360 to the wireless network - I have tried to input the details manually, I have copied them from usb drive via windows connect now.

The Xbox just can-not see or connect to the network - it was working fine with BT broadband at the old house. The PS3 and Wii sitting next to the xbox discovered and connected to the router instantly with no problems.

I have checked and mac filtering is off - the SSID is not hidden (laptops ps3 etc... found it instantly) it is just the xbox 360 that is having problems.

I am using the official xbox 360 G wireless adaptor which is showing a steady red light (shows not connected - would be flashing to indicate a fault).

I have turned uPNP on in the router setup, and from reading on google other people don't seem to have this problem so I am really stuck and would appreciate any help to resolve this.

Disable the network adapters on the laptop via device manager and then enable again. If this does not work reinstall the network drivers and see whether it helps.

All the best!

Go to "My Network Places" and then click on "View Network connections". You should see an icon for your internet service provider. If you do not see an icon to your ISP, then click on "Create a new Connection" and follow the wizard which will guide you through the setup process.

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?

For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

    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 ( / 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.

    you do have an account with an isp yeah? eg BT, Tiscali, Sky, etc etc having a wireless router does not in itself get you onto the net... if you have an isp already thats cool but is the router you have a broadband modem too? or does it need to connect to your existing modem? the reason I ask is DNS is dial up networking service and one of the reasons a DNS would not be found is if there simply was not one to be found

    Play on xbox live via wireless

    First your setup should be, wall (isp) > Actiontec DSL Gateway > Zyxel router > your computer

    If that is already setup right, try the ip address of, some routers use this ip rather that

    Hope that helps.
