NOTE: The following setup info .is for da PPPoA connection type.(most common in UK).
Its advised to keep da ethernet connected to your laptop untill you configure da wireless on the router, you can disconnect da ethernet cable after the confoguration is over to connect wirelessly.
Try the following: check if your PC is communicating correctly with router. (You might need to restart the computer, after the router is connected to it). On the desktop click on Start and then on Run. In the open box, type cmd.
It will bring up the command prompt window
Type command ipconfig in that window and press the Enter / Return key on the keyboard. It will bring up results similar to the image below.
Note the values of IP Address and Default Gateway in the ipconfig command results. If the IP address is in the range of 169. 254.x.x or 0.0.0.0, then your PC is not communicating to the router. In such a case contact your router vendor for support.
If the IP Address is in the range of 192.168.x.x then the network setup should be ok. Note down the values of IP Address and Default Gateway. Close the command prompt window.
Open Internet Explorer window and in the address bar type in the address that you found for Default Gateway. In case of a Netgear router it should be 192.168.0.1
It should bring up the logon window similar to the image below. Type the router username and password in the respective text boxes. Refer your product manual for the default Router username and password. In case of most Netgear routers, default username is admin and password is password. Then click on the Login button to continue.
In the next window that appears, click on the setup wizard button
This should bring up the Setup Wizard page similar to the image below. Select Country as UK and Language as English. Under Auto-Detect Connection Type, select No. Then click on Next button.
Basic Settings page will appear. Under Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?, select Yes.
Configure the following settings in the window:
Then ckick on da wireless settings option.( its on the left pane on the window).
- keep the channel as 11.
- mode can be g&b
Make sure that da option WIRELESS ACCESS POINT is enabaled.
Also check da security options .... I would suggest use WPA-PSK encryption.
make a note of da shared key(network password).
ckick apply and wait till it saves the settings.
Disconnect the ethernet and try connecting to the wireless network with the correct security key.
Hope this helps you.

Hi, May be your router is now running a more secure algorith and needs password etc which the old one can't handle. You may have to downgrade your router to the older system..not a good idea.

1) If you are using the Windows Default Wireless Network Connection. Open the windows where you you will see a list of all wi-fi connections near by your location. On the left panel(Related Tasks) click on "Change Advance Settings" >> Wireless Network Connection Properties >> Click "Wireless Network" Tab >> from the Preferred Networks: list, remove the wi-fi connection you are trying to connect. Once your W-Fi connection settings are removed. You can either add it manually clicking on the Add button and entering all informaiton manually, or from the wi-fi network list click the network name it will ask you to enter the netowkr key....
2) if you are using any other Wi-Fi connection application, like the Intel's, follow the same procedure. delete the settings and try connecting again.

i had the same problem too with my'n. My issue was on of my setting's was set to block that wi-fi connection. Try switching your setting for finding internet connection from automatic to manual. that should do the trick!

You should set the security on your computer wifi card to wpa-psk and then type in the securitycode which is written in your Zyxel Router.
If this is not possible with your networkcard, change to wpa or wpa2 inside the Zyxel. And do the same procedure with your networkcard, when detected the Router.
