Setting up Zoom X6 ADSL as an access point for 2Wire 1701HG Gateway

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.

Two words:
I'm sorry.

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...

Can i remove ethernet cable after installing router because when i do i lose connection


A router basically acts as a translator between networks to enable inter-connectivity. Your question was not descriptive enough. I think you are using a wireless router to route a wired network to a wireless one. If that is so, the router should be connected to both. For instance an ADSL or DSL Gateway router should be connected to the ISP through the wired cable and at the same time act as an access point (i.e. a getway, DHCP etc) to the local network. If this doesn't give you enough information try to clarify your question and i 'll try 2 help.

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL
modem.

My zoom ADSL X6 works well for my ethernet. Yet


hello. with regard to your concern.. the network key is probably under the adsl x6 or at the side of the device.. if you cant see it.. try to access the setup page, but you need to know the default gateway of your adslx6, to check the ip address right click the network icon on the lower right taskbar of your computer and select on status, select support and it will show the details.. ex. your default gateway is 192.168.1.1, pull up a brower and at the url, type the default gateway, 192.168.1.1 then it will ask for the username and password.. after entering the username and password.. go to the wireless setting and it will show there the network key..

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

Wireless router


What is the make and model of your router?

What type of internet access do you have (DSL or cable)?

Are you connecting the computer with a cable or via wireless?

If you have verified that the cable connections are correct then I would try to power cycle next.

1. Unplug the modem, router and turn off the computer.
2. Plug the modem in and wait 5 minutes.
3. Plug the router back in.
4. Turn the computer back on.

Let me know the details for the above questions if we need to go further.
