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??!!

Re: Zoom X6 installation
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 straightforward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.

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.
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.
Contacted the company who gave the good advice of changing the DPI settings and also showed us 2 different ways of how to do it. For anyone who has the same problem try right clicking the desktop and click on personalise, adjust font size to default and save,. Alternatively click start, control panel, appearance & themes, change screen resolution, settings, advanced, DPI to normal 96 DPI and save. Thanks for your help we will always check this site if problems in future.
If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue
