Hello everybody,

I bought ADSL Wireless Router. The problem I found out is that there are four Ethernet exits and only one slot which is to be connected with a telephone cable.

I tried to plug in the internet cable in one of the ethernet slots and then plug another cable to my laptop and it is working fine as a normal connector.

The problem that I face now is that I want to make it wireless.

When I switch on the wireless on my laptop it appears that it is finding the router but it gives "limited or no connectivity" message at the bottom.

I tried the software but it is not letting me go through the installation process unless I have plugged in the telephone ADLS cable.

Any idea what I can possibly to? Should I seek for another software?

Thank you for any help!

What make and model?
This appears to be a Modem/Router combination.
In most cases, you'll need to access the Router's Web Interface to set up your wireless config.

Hi, thank you for the reply.

It is ZOOM Model 5590

it is ADSL 2/2 + Modem + Wireless-G Router + Switch

This is what it is said to be:

and here are the specifications:

As I told before the sotware I have with it requires me to have the ADSL cable plugged in in order to continue with the installation.

Ok. I got the manual.

when I go manual I do not know what to enter in the following fields:




When I enter the address in the bar of the browser this appears:

When I go to Select from a list:

it is asking me for ISP, and then username and password and after
that it gives me Performing modem and error page after a couple of minutes.
