20 Most Recent Zoom X6 Adsl Modem/router Rohs (5590-00-00BF) Questions & Answers

The red light that you have there is a sign that router is having some hardware failure on it, what we can try here is to do a reset on it and see if that corrects the problem.

To reset it look for a small reset button on the router and then use a pen or paper clip then press and hold it for 30 seconds while power is ON then power off and power back on see if that corrects the issue. But if still the same you now need a new router if its still under warranty have it replace.

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.

There will be at least 2 plugs on the modem. One will be a smaller plug, that you will plug a phone line into (if you look closely, there will be only 2 wires in that plug). The remaining plugs will be for either your wireless router (if you use one), or your computers.

You dont need the Software to do this - you can setup routers manually - by logging into them - to start lets find the correct online manual - this is the start of getting an online manual http://www.zoom.com/techsupport/adsl/adsl_5590cf.shtml Page 28 - shows how to setup the wireless security also shows details on page 13 how to login to the router - using in an internet explorer address bar - now these are quite OLD settings - so they may still be valid or a firmware update may have changed - to check - on the PC do the following start>run {vista/7 search box}>CMD>ipconfig --- you should see a number next to default gateway if its then thats the same as the manual - but it may start 192.168.x.x ---- so that maybe the number you need to enter into the webpage NEXT - the default username and password --- from page 14 of manual then goto the wireless section and set the WEP security you require

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

No, they are specific to using cat 5 cable.
Anything else could cause a signal loss or interference.

You may check the following:

1. Make sure to plug the power cube into a power strip or wall outlet and then plug the power cube's other end into the modem's power (PWR) jack.

2. You should only use the power cube with the Zoom X6. Other power cubes may damage your hardware.

3. Try another wall outlet.

4. Reset the modem. Use a paper clip and insert it into the RESET pinhole in the modem's back panel and press it 3 times. Then turn off the modem for a minute and turn it back on. Check if the power light will turn solid green.

5. Possible defective modem.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

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.

Plug a network cable into the back of your PC and Router. The usually the default router page is

Go to that page in a browser on your PC once you have conectivity. Try using 'admin/admin" to login, if that doesn't work try "Administrator/Password" keep trying a few different combos until you login to the router config page. From there you should have a section to setup the WEP/WPA key. Once you establish the security key you can set it up in your wireless lan card of your laptop.

Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:

    • User Name: admin
    • Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)

Probably means that the security is turned on, if the wireless doesn't work even after you have entered the right password then press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to restore it to defaults - factory defaults just like it was first powered on.

Unplug the plug (from phoneline) on back of USB modem, plug into Zoom router. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
