Question about Zoom X6 Adsl Wireless Gateway Rohs Router
Currently I am only using a 2Wire 1701HG Gateway as the primary modem/router for my home network. My laptop can barely pick up on the wireless signal that is being sent out by the 2Wire. So, I would like to set up a Zoom X6 ADSL as an access point or switch to broaden the wireless range.
The 2Wire is set up in Access Point mode. But I do not know how to set up the Zoom X6 ADSL in client mode. Also, from what I understand all I need to do to "bridge" the routers is connect a network cable from a LAN port on the Zoom to a LAN port on the 2Wire. So far the result is FAIL. Thanks for any help you can provide!

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.

My parents use satellite as their primary internet connection. We have had a heck of a time getting a router to work in their configuration because of the lag involved in the satellite communication. In a nutshell, but the time the data gets requested and sent back to your computer through the satellite your computer got tired of waiting and "times out" or give up on that data. You can try to purchase a wireless router and connect it up to the satellite modem and see how it works, but I wouldn't hold my breath (the best we've been able to do is get it work 1/2 of the time).
By the way because of the lag of satellite communication, online gaming with your PS3 would difficult, but not impossible. My younger brothers use my parent's connection for their Wii & Xbox.
I just with the ISPs would get on the ball and roll fiber to everyone's house. I have to say I love my fiber connection!

If you want to setup wireless network then......
you need to config your router for wireless network..
for that you need to open router configuration page or either you can run the disc you got with your router..
in that it gives you an option of wireless network..
it will ask you to type in a network name ssid give any name you wish to your network..
it will also ask you to type in a password for network...
choose wpa-psk security and type any secure password in 8to 63 charactersand apply and once it's done...
now if you're on windows xp then click start>then control panel>network connections>then rt click wireless network connections and click view available wireless networks there you'll find your network name ssid in it select it and press connect..it will ask for your 8-63 characters password type in the same press connect it will say connected..
unplug ethernet cable and try opening pages ie..
If you're on vista then click start>connect to>rest is same as above...

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.
