My zyxel 660 hw works fine for 10 minutes, then starts disconnect
After switching on my zyxel prestige 660 hw it works fine for 10 minutes, then it starts disconnecting, connecting, disconnecting etc etc., but only for the internet connection for my pc by ethernet cable.
at the same time (simultaneously) internet works fine on my lap top on a wifi connection with the same Zyxel modem/router. Anyone have a solution?

If the same thing is happening with the USB WIFI on the PC. This sounds like a problem with your PC rather than your router. Is your antivirus / spyware scanner up to date? If not up date it and run a full system scan. Also you should check to see if your Firewall is up to date, and that the wireless network you are connecting to is included in the safe zone area of your firewall.
1 more thing if you are using a Thrid party firewall (i.e. Norton, Zone Alarm, McAfee, Etc.) Make sure Windows Firewall is deactivated (in Conntrol Panel) having 2 firewalls on can lead to random problems

Hi i have the same problem with Zyxel router. I have tried to reset it, to unplug and whait, to insstaal new drivers but Zyxel router is still not wokring properly. It sometimes work for a half day and sometimes it just unconnects the internet 5 times in a minute.. I went where i bought it and they gived me anoder zyxel router, the same, but i still have the same problem.
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.
