Question about Zoom (5590-00-03) Wireless Router (G66115)

Laptop won't connect to wireless

I have a zoom adsl x6 router/modem and an hp laptop. On my laptop, I can see my wireless connection with full 5 bars, but it will not connect. My husband's laptop works just fine with it and always automatically connects to the wireless when turned on. Mine has actually worked a few times, but seems to be very random. I have tried changing the default channel several times, have also upgraded the firmware to the 5.4 version, have done a reset of router, have tried over and over to get computer to repair connection. The message I usually get is that the computer can't connect to the wireless. Also, it works just fine in other places; at work, when I turn my laptop on, it automatically connects to the wireless there. So there's some setting issue between my home wireless and this laptop. Oh, and I have it set at WEP-64 bit encryption with a network key and set at mixed long profile. I've spent hours upon hours trying to figure this out and am ready to chuck the laptop out the window. Please help!!

    Same thing - HP laptop and a Zoom X6 dsl modem/router - very random when it connects and disconnects. I wonder if Zoom has a know issue and doesn't play well with others...

Hello :-)
Try going into device manager, and uninstalling your wireless network adapter.
Reboot your PC. It will automatically reinstall your wireless network card.
Now try your wireless connection. This often solves random wireless issues.
Good luck!

Try giving your wireless card a manual IP address. Open network connections (under Start menu or control panel), right click your wireless card, then choose properties. Highlight 'internet protocol' and choose properties then select 'use the following IP address' fill in the details as below

  • IP address
  • Subnet mask
  • Default gateway
  • Preferred DNS Server

SOURCE: are trying to enter the WEP key and it is not

It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption.

Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead.

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.


Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)

    The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

    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.

    Not recognized by cable modem

    Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

    Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
    Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
    Turn on PC
    It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

    I have a Zoom X6 ADSL modem that keeps dropping my internet signal. How can I correct this?

    is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.

    Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting

    Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

    1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

    2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
    3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.

    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 straight forward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.
