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.

Q. How To Access My ZyXEL Router Settings?

A. Setting up configuration

  • Connect the router to your computer using an ethernet cable.  The LAN port of the router and the ethernet port of your computer should be connected via single ethernet cable. The ADSL cable of modem goes inside the wan port of the router.
  • Open your web browser and type in the IP address of your router. The default IP address, in this case, is
  • A login prompt asking you to enter the username and password on the screen will be displayed. Type the username as admin and password as “1234”. (1234 is the default password for Zyxel routers).
  • After logging in, the router based setup wizard will open in front of you.
  • Go to “Maintenance < User Account”. Type the existing password and a set new password.
  • After setting your new password, click on “apply” to save the changes.


Setting up network settings

  • Go to network settings tab and click on “Wireless”.
  • Go to “Wireless Network Settings” < “Wireless Network Name (SSID)”.  Type a new SSID in the field.
  • Now go to the WAN settings and set the encapsulation to “PPPOE”  and enter the username and password. If you have been assigned a fixed (static ) IP address, enable “fix IP address”.
  • Set the WAN mac address to factory default and apply changes.
  • Wait for a few minutes for the router to reboot and after that, you are ready to go.

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.

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.
