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.

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.

Zoom x6 modem disconnect


If you only get disconnected on the desktop, the problem is the desktop.

You can try removing network card from device manager and installing it back, try also logging in with a different user name and disabling eventual firewalls.

Fastest way to get rid of problems of this kind is by reinstalling windows, and if it does not work getting a replacement network card, or connecting the PC wireless.

If you have a spare wireless LAN Usb adapter, try connecting the PC on wireless.

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.

Zoom adsl x6


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

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.
