i have recently bought a ZyXel P66OHW modem router, i have a pc and two laptops, i used the web-based set up site and set up the pc and the two laptops are running of wireless while the pc is directly connected to the router. i live in hull so i have karoo broadband and i used to use speedtouch connection. i had to change some internet explorer settings for the pc to accept the internet to come through the ethernet cable although the laptops accepted it fine. the laptops are running on windows vista and the pc on xp. i got evertyhing set up fine and then it all went wrong..........

my problems started when i restared the pc, it wouldnt connect to any internet pages, the laptops were fine but when i went onto the web based diagnostic page the router thought i was connected to the internet eventhough i couldnt get any sites.

i then decided to connect the pc via a wireless dongle and that worked for about 20min then it would kick me off and then flicker a bit and then reconnect and do it all again.

all the time the laptops have worked perfectly but i am having lots of problems with the pc.

please help as i have spent about 7 hours racking my brains trying to set it up.

thank you

My next door neighbour had exactly the same problem and asked me to check it out. I couldn't find owt obvious so
dropped the copmany a note yesterday. They responded this morning with a solution and it worked!

Give it a go and see if it helps.

2. Enter your password (default: 1234)
3. Click to go to Advanced Setup
4. On the Main Menu, click on Advanced -> Bandwidth Management
5. Untick all 3 boxes and click Apply.

Happy new year bud. Good luck.
