How to Access My ZYXEL Router Settings?

I set a password on my wireless network through a wireless computer and now the network recognizes the password I set. I'm using Dell laptop through Ethernet cable and I tried accessing Zyxel router through the normal but it won't connect. I've already tried resetting both the router and the modem but I am unable to access my router settings.

Access My ZYXEL Router Settings

To access the router's settings of your zyxel router you need to first connect the router to your computer with the help of an ethernet cable. Go to the web browser and enter the IP address of your respective router. You will then be asked to enter the password and username; type admin as your username and 1 2 3 4 as your password. Now that you are logged in, a set wizard will open; go to the "maintenance" and "user account" options, type your current password, and form a new password as well. 

How to Access Zyxel Router?

Step 1: Connect a Cat5 Ethernet cable to the WAN port on the router. Connect the other end of the network cable to the Cat5, LAN or Network port on the modem. Connect the AC adapter to the router, then plug it into an available electrical outlet.

Step 2: Connect RJ-45 cables to any wired computers you want to use with the router. Plug the RJ-45 cables into the LAN ports on the rear of the router.

Step 3: Power on the broadband modem and the ZyXel router. Wait a few minutes for the modem to initialize and establish an Internet connection.

How to Configure ZyXel Router?

Step 1: Go to one of the PCs connected to the router via an RJ-45 cable. Open your preferred Web browser. Type "" in the address bar, then press "Enter." When prompted to enter the administrator password, enter "1234" and then click "Login."

Step 2: Click the "Go to Wizard Setup" link, then click your preferred language on the welcome screen. Click "Next" on the "System Information" screen.

Step 3: Type a unique network name in the "Name (SSID)" field, then click "Next." A small dialog box appears and displays the "Pre-Shared Key" value. Write this value down, as you will need it to connect wireless computers to the router later. Click the "OK" button to close the dialog box.

Step 4: Select your broadband connection type from the drop-down list -- if the utility does not detect it automatically -- then click "Next." If using a "PPP over Ethernet" or "PPTP" connection -- most broadband connections are usually one or the other -- enter your username and password in the corresponding fields.

Step 5: Select the "Get Automatically From ISP" option if your service provider assigns a new IP address each time you connect to the Internet. If you have a static, or permanent, IP address, select the "Use Fixed IP Address" option, then enter the IP address and Subnet Mask assigned by the ISP in the corresponding fields. Click the "Next" button.

Step 6: Click the "Factory Default" option in the "WAN MAC Address" window, then click "Next." On the next screen, leave the "Enable BM for All Traffic Automatically" checked, then click "Next."

Step 7: Click the "Apply" button, then "Finish" to complete the setup process. Wait a few minutes for the router to reboot and apply the configuration changes.

Step 8: Open a new tab or window in your Web browser. Surf the Web as you normally would.
