I recently bought a Zoom X6 model 5590 wireless router to use with my Talktalk broadband, but can't get an internet connection. Talktalk gave me their settings to configure the modem, but when I attempt to enter the DNS server address it says it's invalid. Can anyone tell me how to get this router to work with Talktalk (I'm using Windows Vista).

is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto zoom.com/x6 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.
Yes the router assigns an internal IP address. connect it up then using your PC go into the configuration of your router (http://10.0.0.2) and look under system status, scroll to the bottom and under DCHP status you will see a list of all clients connected. Your Xbox will be listed along with its internal IP address.
Yes there is a difference although most router manufacturers claim that you can get 4 or even 6x times faster than 54Mbps of a regular 802.11g wireless standard, wired connection(10/100/1000Mbps) are still faster because they are less subjected to interference unlike wireless that are vulnerable to interference like cordless phones, microwave devices, lighting fixtures, distance and the obstruction between your wireless router and the computer.
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 http://10.0.0.2 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)
you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straightforward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.
