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?

    Thank you, yes. As I suspected something to be wrong with the ethernet connections, I bought and installed a USB WiFi on the PC. It worked for one week and then the problem started all over again.


    The amazing thing is that my lap top's WiFi internet connection works perfectly over the same Zyxel WiFi modem/router.

    I have the same problems. I have different PCs and notebooks operating both Windows XP and Mac OSX the can connect to the router only by wireless. Using the ethernet ports they continuously disconnect.

    Did you try changing the ethernet cable between the router and the PC to see if its your cable giving problems?

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

I cant use the 5 IP on a zyxel P-660-D1

Are the 5 IP addreses you mentioned public IPs assigned to you by your ISP? Also what is the end result you are after, the assigning of the public IPs to devices behind the router?

Port forwarding not working in ok firmware AGL6 or later

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.
