We've got hardwired and wireless hooked connected to the router. The wireless connections keep getting dropped, it's quite frustrating. Actually, it's 3 things connected, an ethernet and two routers, one for phone and one for internet.

Who is your ISP (internet service provider)? Anyway, it is possible to get your set up working. ZyXel is the DSL modem gateway and Linksys, your router/wifi. If you are able to get online by hooking up directly to the Zyxel, then it is possible to add the Linksys to the system. Dont hook up the Zyxel to the Internet port of Linksys just yet. First you have to configure the Linksys by connecting your PC to it with a cable. Boot up the PC. Open web browser and enter the address 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. This is the default address of the Linksys. username = admin and no password. It is probably the same as the Zyxel which causes the conflict. The first set up page may look something like this below. Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 Then click apply...From now on the Linksys IP address is 192.168.2.1. Now you can connect the Linksys internet port to the Zyxel. Reboot the Linksys and Zyxel.
Your PC should be on the internet after that. To check/setup wifi, you need to log back into the Linksys using the new adress x.x.2.1
