Surface Pro (2017) vs Surface Pro 4
Trying to connect my sisters PC to the Zoom x6 wireless router but having major issues. When I get to the stage of detecting ISP settings (on auto detect), I get an error message stating that the 'zoom router cannot be found'. I also cannot access the management page on click here in order to ammend any settings in there as I just get the "page cannot be displayed" message... She's on orange broadband by the way running windows XP.
sorry, should have been more clear. I have wired it all up, etc as the set up disk says.. I know I'm doing something wrong, just completely stumped as to what :oS
Did you set up the Lan card and your browser to access the router?
If any firewalls are installed on any of the PCs, uninstall them.
This includes Zone Alarm, Sygate, Kerio, Norton Internet Security, Zero Knowledge Freedom, Cisco VPN Client, F-Secure, McAfee Firewall, Trend Micro, etc.
In many cases, disabling the firewall is not enough; you have to actually uninstall it.
Do not install or re-install the firewall until after you have the network functioning properly

Start your web browser. Select “Tools” then “Internet Options”.
In the “Internet Options” screen, there are three selections:

Hiya, I did the browser setting but not the LAN setup. Will give it a go when I try again tomorrow and let you know how it goes! Thank you very very muchly! :o)
Setting Up The Wireless System
You have to setup the SSID address on the router first
By default some wireless router come setup with the manufacture name as the SSID address 3Com, Linksys, Belkin etc, you can change the SSID to what ever you want, 452john06 or ezyclip01 etc.
Write it down; as the same name must be used on the wireless device when set it up to access the wireless router.
Do not setup the security system as yet, make sure that you can access the router and browse the Internet first, and then setup the security system.
If you get it wrong the wireless device will not access the wireless router or the Internet
Go to Page 6 Step 3: Establishing Communication in the manual
And just follow the instructions
Protocol - Select PPPoA
Encapsulation – VCMUX
VPI – 0
VCI – 38
NAT – Enabled
Username and Password in the appropriate boxes.
This information should have been given to you by your Internet service provider.
Your Username is typically your email address or the characters Preceding the @ sign in your email address. ([email protected]) etc.
Your Password is the one that you use when you requested the broadband service
This is NOT the same login you that you used earlier to open the Zoom Configuration Manager.
Click the Save Changes button, and then click the Write Settings to Flash button.
Verify that your Internet connection is working. Open your Web browser (i.e., Internet Explorer or Firefox) and try to connect to a familiar Web address.If you connect successfully, you are ready to set up the rest of your wired and/or wireless Internet connections.
(If you do not connect, see the Troubleshooting Tips on page 15.) and recheck the computer setting
Check out this site before you setup the wireless system could save you a lot of time and headache.
Question said by first time user of ADSL Wireless Broadband
The hard wire PC does not have to be on for the wireless system to work
Once the router is on all wireless devices should have local and Internet access
With a hard wire system the LAN card runs at 100Mbps, wireless runs 54Mbps
You cannot see the wireless system from a hard wire PC only your Local Area Connection
If there is a wireless card installed on the hard wire PC you will see it in the network connection area
You should not have both the LAN and Wireless connect at the same time.
Some computers will automatic disable the LAN or wireless card as required, as this causes conflict within the router
The hard wire connection will allow you access the router setup menu, Internet, Security, Password, wireless setting etc.
The signal strength and the connect speed on the wireless PC is governed by the location of the router to the laptop, distance, amount and thickness of walls, quality of signal can verity from poor – excellence, connect speed from 1Mbps to 54Mbps
The normal connect speed on a build in wireless card or USB adapter is 54Mbps
