Configuring ZyXEL P-660HW series modem-router

  viesiic 20:52 04 May 2007

I am from Latvia and I have a BIG problem with my router (ZyXEL P-660HW series) configuration - I can't configure it from my pc through IE or Firefox (IP). When I'm trying to open that configuration page - it is not opening. Thats why I called to my provider (Apollo), and they said, that it is not possible from my pc, it is possible only from their technician's laptop! I dont understand why?! is there some another way how to configure it? ...very important, lot of programs are not working because that firewall is blocking them. If someone knows - please help!

Which model? The relevant user guide should tell you how, the address depends on the model.

Do you have all the things necessary to make it work as it says in section 2.1

(popup allowed, java working, IE 6 or newer)

yes, I have. I think the technichian may be blocked access from my pc's local IP adress to the web configurator and telnet. ..I read about this possibility in users manual. but now I dont know how to change my computers LAN IP adress.. and I have no idea what IP the technichian may be used as allowed IP. Oh man what a mess..

You can see this, make sure you note the settings before changing anything.

Look in Network connections, local area connection - right click - properties
- highlight internet protocol - properties.

well, there I can see that there everything is set to automatic. nothing more.
my opinion now is to make a Reset, but later I dont know if the Internet will work then..
maybe there are some kind of software, with who I could confugure that ***** black box?! ...starts to get realy annoying.

Confirm that is the routers ip - check on the support tab on the Local Area Connection status page. Look under default gateway. If this is different to then use the different address in your browser.

As for their technician being the only one who can access it ... have you tried getting the public ip address of your connection, and logging in via that? It does sound like the best solution is going to be do a reset on the router, but that will lose your internet connection settings, so you might wanna get them written down first.
