Wireless Setup - ZyXEL P-660HW-T1

Step 1 - Log into Router:

To configure your router's wireless network open Internet Explorer and navigate to the router's configuration page by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar as shown below.

When the page loads you will be prompted for your Router configuration password. By default this is 1234 unless you have changed it previously.



Once the password is entered click the button marked Login and you may be asked to change the password. Click Ignore to move to the next page.


You will now be asked to choose between Wizard or Advanced setup. Choose Advanced Setup and click Apply to log into the main menu.


Step 2 - Navigating to the Wireless LAN configuration page:

Upon logging in you will be presented with the main menu of your router. To access the wireless settings click on Network and then Wireless LAN on the menu on the left.


When the wireless LAN settings page appears you will see the following:




Step 3 – Configuring the Wireless LAN:

Basic Wireless LAN Settings:

First ensure that Active Wireless LAN is ticked. This will ensure your network is being broadcast by the router.

The network name is what is broadcast by the modem to identify your network. The default network name is ZyXEL however you may change this to something more personal to you or your household to make it easier to identify your network.

The channel is set to 11 by default. Most wireless routers use channel 11 and as such if you are experiencing poor signal or disconnections and there are quite a few other wireless networks in range it is recommended to change the channel.

Once you have specified a Network Name and desired Channel click on Apply to save the settings before moving onto the Security section.


Wireless LAN Security:

WEP:

WEP security provides only basic encryption but better compatibility with games consoles and portable devices.

Select WEP from the Security Mode drop down list and the page will adjust automatically to show the Passphrase and Key fields.

Leave the passphrase field blank and in the Key field enter exactly 10 digits. The letters A to F may used along with any number (0 to 9).

Review your settings and note down the wireless key you entered as you will need this again later when logging onto the network.

Click apply to save your settings and confirm that the same page reloads with the message "Configuration updated successfully" in green at the very bottom of the page.

If you get an error message when the page reloads it is possible you entered too few or incorrect characters. Check your wireless key and try again.

Close the Internet Explorer window once the settings are saved.


WPA-PSK:

WPA provides enhanced encryption and is recommended to use by Digiweb to ensure your wireless network has maximum protection.

WPA is not compatible with some games consoles or portable devices. If you are experiencing issues connecting with such a device it is recommended you test using WEP encryption.

Select WPA-PSK from the Security Mode drop down list and the page will adjust automatically to show the Passphrase field along with some secondary options

Enter a passphrase of your choice containing at least 8 characters (A-Z, 0-9) ensuring there are no spaces.

Review your settings and note down the passphrase you entered as you will need this again later when logging onto the network.

Click Apply to save your settings you should receive the message "Configuration updated successfully" in green at the very bottom of the page.

If you get an error message when the page reloads it is possible you entered too few or incorrect characters. Check your passphrase and try again.

Close the Internet Explorer window once the settings are saved.
