Zoom X6 installation

I'm trying to install a Zoom X6 (5590) router to my desktop to enable me to log onto the internet on my laptop but I'm confused!
My adsl modem has a usb connection into my PC but requires a different type of connection to plug into the router!? Also when I connect the ethernet cable from my pc to the router the ethernet light doesn't come on. What a I doing wrong??!!

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

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.

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 Have zoom adsl x6 and it disconnects after a couple of minutes.


You got to check for some kind of interference in your area.
Maybe a cordless phone, etc...
You can try changing the channel your wireless router is using.
To do that, you must log in into the Main Menu inside the wireless router itself.
For instructions, look in the manual.

Signal showing but no connection (zoom 5590 x6)


Hi……there could be a number of reasons why you can’t connect. I’m assuming you have rebooted both laptop and router to see if this helps, so let’s move on to some basic troubleshooting steps to start with:


  1. Can you pick up the internet through a wired (Ethernet) connection between the laptop and the router? If so, this narrows the problem down to your wireless connection.
  2. Can you login to your router again, and check to see if MAC filtering has been enabled. To find this, go to Advanced Setup > MAC filtering. If the status is ‘enabled’, disable it, Save changes, and try to connect wirelessly again
  3. If MAC filtering is off, and you still can’t connect, go to ‘View Wireless Networks’ on your laptop: disconnect from your network, wait 30 seconds, and reconnect. When prompted, re-enter your network key very carefully. Can you connect now?

If you still can’t connect, please come back to Fixya, and let me/us know the operating system on your laptop. Good luck…

presuming that the router moved with you the telephone line socket could be too far away from the BT socket or is not correctly wired. if you have not moved the router then you need to buy a booster

Need Zoom X6 help unresponsive


make sure your ethernet port is set to 'obtain address' and 'DNS' automatically (IE use DCHP and not static IP address) The software should be able to 'find' the zoom modem then.

Zoom X6 wireless router


Hi, With or without the firmware update, the wireless should work and be indicated with the WLAN led. Have you done an update? Have you tried a hard reset? Most routers would require a reset to default after a firmware update. Pls be reminded that when you do a hard reset, all configuration would be lost, better log them down or do a backup. Alternately, you can check your router's web based configuration manager, apparently, there is an enable/disable feature/selection for the WLAN. Verify that is set to enable. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
