Question about Zyxel Prestige 660R Router (91004397002)

1 Answer

Port forwarding I have a linksys BEFW11S4 and a zyxel-660. I am attempting to forward ports and I can not get them to take. I have switched routers and modems thinking that was the problem but obviously as in most cases, its the operator. I have followed guide after guide step by step and its still a no go. Could someone else be of assistance please?

    Even if i turn off the firewall in the modem? There is an option to do that and I have disabled the firewall according to that option.

Well to start, your connection would possibly be ADSL and your zyxel is set to provide DHCP address on your network, so its router capabilities could be turned on.

if this is true, you may need to rework the connection settings.

here's a recommendation:

1.set your modem to bridge mode (bridge only)
2.this will then be allowing your linksys to manage your DSL connection through PPPoE
3.after so, your linksys router should get a public IP address for an internet IP when you go to status tab (not an IP address starting with 192.168.1.xx)

after so, you may reconfigure your port-forwarding.

the reason why you will need to set your modem to "bridged" only is that if it is not, your zyxel's firewall is also turned on, provided that the linksys' firewall is always on. so even if you define which port will be opened on the router, it will still be blocked by the modem's firewall.

    well disabling the firewall on the router may not do any good since its (Network Access Translator) NAT is still truned on, so it will be best to set your modem to bridged.



    good luck on this one p_kat, what application are you trying to run anyway?

    no need to do anything in the modem since it is bridged. for the forwarding just forward the ports to the IP address that will use it, like a server perhaps.

Port forwarding not working in ok firmware AGL6 or later


According to my very thorough testing some weeks ago, P-660-HW-D1 port forwarding is really very broken.

The worst thing is that not only does the port forwarding work properly, it lets packets to LAN addresses where they're not supposed to go. This means you're not safe behind LAN.

Firewalled or not, AGL.6 or AGL.7 shouldn't be used at all in my opinion, they're unsafe. When in routing mode, and having several LAN machines behind one Zyxel switch port (i.e. separate switch attached), I found that the port forwarding is completely broken.

I have contacted Zyxel Finland about this issue two weeks ago, and they initially thanked for the finding and said they're passing the issue onwards and investigate it.

The best current solution is to downgrade to (also very buggy) AGL.4.

Port Forwarding


hello just got sorted, hope this is helpful ,,,i logged onto port forwarding.com and a long story short , basically had to interigate my zyxel router, what you do is fix the ip add of your wireless connection (the computer) to a manual fix eg. mine is now fixed to 192.168.1.40 with a port tunnel 46207(utorrent preferences)i picked this out of my head as there is a scale from one no. to another.   you then get the password to your router and get into its internal settings via password and go to the port forwarding section, you then tell the router that the computer has a fixed ip add (the one above ) and dedicate a fixed port or tunnell/window mine is 46207save this setting on your router and your home and dry, basically your telling the router that the computer has a fixed add, with port window??? and off it goes ,,,,portfward.com tells al

Unable to log into router to open ports


To log in to the router in order for you to do a port forwarding you can follow the steps from this link, but if the default username and password didn't work reset the router so it will be back to its default settings http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/ZyXEL/P-660HW-T1v2/Age_of_Empires_III.htm

Linksys BEFW11S4-RM 4 port wireless router


This is an old router. Look at the power light. You must have a STEADY power light. RESET the BEFW11s4 by pushing the reset button for 30seconds. Unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 30 seconds. Connect pc to port 2 or 3. pc should get an ip of 192.168.1.x. If you are getting this ip that means that the pc is already detecting the router.

Good Day
