CHAPTER 1
Introduction
1.1 Overview
This chapter introduces the main features and applications of the NBG6604.
The NBG6604 extends the range of your existing wired network without additional wiring, providing easy
network access to mobile users. You can set up a wireless network with other IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
compatible devices. The NBG6604 is able to function both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks at the same time.
A range of services such as a firewall are also available for secure Internet computing.
1.2 Applications
You can have the following networks with the NBG6604:
• Wired. You can connect network devices via the Ethernet ports of the NBG6604 so that they can
communicate with each other and access the Internet.
• Wireless. Wireless clients can connect to the NBG6604 to access network resources. You can use WPS
(Wi-Fi Protected Setup) to create an instant network connection with another WPS-compatible
device.
• WAN. Connect to a broadband modem/router for Internet access.
1.3 Ways to Manage the NBG6604
Use any of the following methods to manage the NBG6604:
• WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). You can use the WPS button or the WPS section of the Web Configurator
to set up a wireless network with your NBG6604.
• Web Configurator. This is recommended for everyday management of the NBG6604 using a
(supported) web browser.
• Zyxel ONE Connect App. See Section 12.3 on page 85.
1.4 Good Habits for Managing the NBG6604
Do the following things regularly to make the NBG6604 more secure and to manage the NBG6604 more
effectively.
NBG6604 User’s Guide

Chapter 1 Introduction
• Change the password. Use a password that’s not easy to guess and that consists of different types of
characters, such as numbers and letters.
• Write down the password and put it in a safe place.
• Back up the configuration (and make sure you know how to restore it). Restoring an earlier working
configuration may be useful if the device becomes unstable or even crashes. If you forget your
password, you will have to reset the NBG6604 to its factory default settings. If you backed up an
earlier configuration file, you would not have to totally re-configure the NBG6604. You could simply
restore your last configuration.
1.5 Resetting the NBG6604
If you forget your password or IP address, or you cannot access the Web Configurator, you will need to
use the RESET button at the back of the NBG6604 to reload the factory-default configuration file. This
means that you will lose all configurations that you had previously saved, the password will be reset to
“1234” and the IP address will be reset to “192.168.1.1”.
1.5.1 How to Use the RESET Button
1
Make sure the power LED is on.
2
Press the RESET button for one to four seconds to restart/reboot the NBG6604.
3
Press the RESET button for longer than five seconds to set the NBG6604 back to its factory-default
configurations.
1.6 The WPS Button
Your NBG6604 supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), which is an easy way to set up a secure wireless
network. WPS is an industry standard specification, defined by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
WPS allows you to quickly set up a wireless network with strong security, without having to configure
security settings manually. Each WPS connection works between two devices. Both devices must
support WPS (check each device’s documentation to make sure).
Depending on the devices you have, you can either press a button (on the device itself, or in its
configuration utility) or enter a PIN (a unique Personal Identification Number that allows one device to
authenticate the other) in each of the two devices. When WPS is activated on a device, it has two
minutes to find another device that also has WPS activated. Then, the two devices connect and set up
a secure network by themselves.
You can use the WPS button (
) on the top panel of the NBG6604 to activate WPS in order to
quickly set up a wireless network with strong security.
1
Make sure the power LED is on (not blinking).
2
Press the WPS button for more than three seconds and release it. Press the WPS button on another WPSenabled device within range of the NBG6604.

3.3 Internet Type
The NBG6604 offers three WAN selection types. They are: Automatic - DHCP, PPPoE, and Static.
Configure the Internet type settings on your NBG6604 in the first part. The following screen depends on
your Internet connection type. Enter the details provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the
fields (if any).
Check with your ISP to make sure you use the correct type. This wizard screen varies according to the
connection type that you select.
3.3.1 WAN Selection Type: Automatic - DHCP
Select the Automatic - DHCP option if your ISP did not assign you a fixed IP address.
Figure 9 WAN Selection Type: Automatic - DHCP
3.3.2 WAN Selection Type: PPPoE
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) functions as a dial-up connection. PPPoE is an IETF (Internet
Engineering Task Force) standard specifying how a host personal computer interacts with a broadband
modem (for example DSL, cable, wireless, etc.) to achieve access to high-speed data networks.
For the service provider, PPPoE offers an access and authentication method that works with existing
access control systems (for instance, RADIUS).
One of the benefits of PPPoE is the ability to let end users access one of multiple network services, a
function known as dynamic service selection. This enables the service provider to easily create and offer
new IP services for specific users.
Operationally, PPPoE saves significant effort for both the subscriber and the ISP/carrier, as it requires no
specific configuration of the broadband modem at the subscriber's site.
NBG6604 User’s Guide
20
Chapter 3 eaZy 123 Wizard
By implementing PPPoE directly on the NBG6604 (rather than individual computers), the computers on
the LAN do not need PPPoE software installed, since the NBG6604 does that part of the task.
Furthermore, with NAT, all of the LAN's computers will have Internet access.

7.1 Overview
This chapter provides tutorials for setting up your NBG6604.
• Set Up a Wireless Network Using WPS
• Connect to NBG6604 Wireless Network without WPS
• Using Guest SSIDs on the NBG6604
7.2 Set Up a Wireless Network Using WPS
This section gives you an example of how to set up wireless network using WPS. This example uses the
NBG6604 as the AP and NWD210N as the wireless client which connects to a notebook.
The wireless client must be a WPS-aware device. There are two WPS methods for creating a secure
connection via the web configurator or utility. This tutorial shows you how to do both.
• Push Button Configuration (PBC) - create a secure wireless network simply by pressing a button. See
Section 7.2.1 on page 38. This is the easier method.
• PIN Configuration - create a secure wireless network simply by entering a wireless client's PIN (Personal
Identification Number) in the NBG6604’s interface. See Section 7.2.2 on page 39. This is the more
secure method, since one device can authenticate the other.
7.2.1 Push Button Configuration (PBC)
1
Make sure that your NBG6604 is turned on. and that the device is placed within range of your notebook.
2
Make sure that you have installed the wireless client (this example uses the NWD210N) driver and utility in
your notebook.
3
In the wireless client utility, find the WPS settings. Enable WPS and press the WPS button (Start or WPS
button)
4
Log into NBG6604’s Web Configurator and press the Push Button in the Wireless > WPS screen.
Note: Your NBG6604 has a WPS button located on its top panel, as well as a WPS button in its
configuration utility. Both buttons have exactly the same function; you can use one or
the other.
Note: It doesn’t matter which button is pressed first. You must press the second button within
two minutes of pressing the first one.

get a PIN number.
2
Enter the PIN number to the PIN field in the Wireless > WPS screen on the NBG6604.
3
Click Start buttons (or button next to the PIN field) on both the wireless client utility screen and the
NBG6604’s WPS screen within two minutes.
The NBG6604 authenticates the wireless client and sends the proper configuration settings to the wireless
client. This may take up to two minutes. Then the wireless client is able to communicate with the
NBG6604 securely.

7.4 Using Guest SSIDs on the NBG6604
You can configure more than one guest SSID on a NBG6604. See Section 10.4 on page 72.
This allows you to configure multiple independent wireless networks on the NBG6604 as if there were
multiple APs (virtual APs). Each guest SSID has its own wireless security type. That is, each SSID on the
NBG6604 represents a different access point/wireless network to wireless clients in the network.
Clients can associate only with the SSIDs for which they have the correct security settings. Clients using
different SSIDs can access the Internet and the wired network behind the NBG6604 (such as a printer).

This chapter discusses the NBG6604’s WAN screens. Use these screens to configure your NBG6604 for
Internet access.
A WAN (Wide Area Network) connection is an outside connection to another network or the Internet. It
connects your private networks such as a LAN (Local Area Network) and other networks, so that a
computer in one location can communicate with computers in other locations.

9.3 What You Need To Know
The information in this section can help you configure the screens for your WAN connection, as well as
enable/disable some advanced features of your NBG6604.
9.3.1 Configuring Your Internet Connection
Encapsulation Method
Encapsulation is used to include data from an upper layer protocol into a lower layer protocol. To set up
a WAN connection to the Internet, you need to use the same encapsulation method used by your ISP
(Internet Service Provider). If your ISP offers a dial-up Internet connection using PPPoE (PPP over
Ethernet) or PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol), they should also provide a username and password
(and service name) for user authentication.
WAN IP Address
The WAN IP address is an IP address for the NBG6604, which makes it accessible from an outside
network. It is used by the NBG6604 to communicate with other devices in other networks. It can be static
(fixed) or dynamically assigned by the ISP each time the NBG6604 tries to access the Internet.
If your ISP assigns you a static WAN IP address, they should also assign you the subnet mask and DNS
server IP address(es) (and a gateway IP address if you use the Ethernet or ENET ENCAP encapsulation
method).
DNS Server Address Assignment
Use Domain Name System (DNS) to map a domain name to its corresponding IP address and vice versa,
for instance, the IP address of www.zyxel.com is 204.217.0.2. The DNS server is extremely important
because without it, you must know the IP address of a computer before you can access it.
The NBG6604 can get the DNS server addresses in the following ways:
1
The ISP tells you the DNS server addresses, usually in the form of an information sheet, when you sign up.
If your ISP gives you DNS server addresses, manually enter them in the DNS server fields.
2
If your ISP dynamically assigns the DNS server IP addresses (along with the NBG6604’s WAN IP address),
set the DNS server fields to get the DNS server address from the ISP.
WAN MAC Address
The MAC address screen allows users to configure the WAN port's MAC address by either using the
factory default or cloning the MAC address from a computer on your LAN. Choose Factory Default to
select the factory assigned default MAC Address.
Otherwise, click Clone the computer's MAC address - IP Address and enter the IP address of the
computer on the LAN whose MAC you are cloning. Once it is successfully configured, the address will be
copied to configuration file. It is recommended that you clone the MAC address prior to hooking up the
WAN Port.
NBG6604 User’s Guide

Chapter 9 WAN
Multicast
Traditionally, IP packets are transmitted in one of either two ways - Unicast (1 sender - 1 recipient) or
Broadcast (1 sender - everybody on the network). Multicast delivers IP packets to a group of hosts on
the network - not everybody and not just 1.
Figure 28 Multicast Example
A
B
C
Server
D
In the multicast example above, systems A and D comprise one multicast group. In multicasting, the
server only needs to send one data stream and this is delivered to systems A and D.
IGMP (Internet Group Multicast Protocol) is a network-layer protocol used to establish membership in a
multicast group - it is not used to carry user data. The NBG6604 supports both IGMP version 1 (IGMP-v1)
and IGMP version 2 (IGMP-v2).
At start up, the NBG6604 queries all directly connected networks to gather group membership. After
that, the NBG6604 periodically updates this information. IP multicasting can be enabled/disabled on the
NBG6604 WAN interface in the Web Configurator (WAN). Select None to disable IP multicasting on these
interfaces.
Auto-IP Change
When the NBG6604 gets a WAN IP address or a DNS server IP address which is in the same subnet as the
LAN IP address 192.168.1.1, Auto-IP-Change allows the NBG6604 to change its LAN IP address to 10.0.0.1
automatically. If the NBG6604’s original LAN IP address is 10.0.0.1 and the WAN IP address is in the same
subnet, such as 10.0.0.3, the NBG6604 switches to use 192.168.1.1 as its LAN IP address.

9.4.2 PPPoE Encapsulation
The NBG6604 supports PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet). PPPoE is an IETF standard (RFC 2516)
specifying how a personal computer (PC) interacts with a broadband modem (DSL, cable, wireless,
etc.) connection. The PPP over Ethernet option is for a dial-up connection using PPPoE.
For the service provider, PPPoE offers an access and authentication method that works with existing
access control systems (for example Radius).
One of the benefits of PPPoE is the ability to let you access one of multiple network services, a function
known as dynamic service selection. This enables the service provider to easily create and offer new IP
services for individuals.
Operationally, PPPoE saves significant effort for both you and the ISP or carrier, as it requires no specific
configuration of the broadband modem at the customer site.
NBG6604 User’s Guide
55
Chapter 9 WAN
By implementing PPPoE directly on the NBG6604 (rather than individual computers), the computers on
the LAN do not need PPPoE software installed, since the NBG6604 does that part of the task.
Furthermore, with NAT, all of the LANs’ computers will have access.
This screen displays when you select PPPoE encapsulation.

Wireless LAN
10.1 Overview
This chapter discusses how to configure the wireless network settings in your NBG6604. The NBG6604 is
able to function both 2.4GHz and 5GHz network at the same time. You can have different wireless and
wireless security settings for 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless LANs. Click Wireless to configure wireless LAN 2.4G
or wireless LAN 5G.
See the appendices for more detailed information about wireless networks.
The following figure provides an example of a wireless network.
Figure 36 Example of a Wireless Network

The wireless network is the part in the blue circle. In this wireless network, devices A and B are called
wireless clients. The wireless clients use the Access Point (AP) to interact with other devices (such as the
printer) or with the Internet. Your NBG6604 is the AP.
NBG6604 User’s Guide
63
Chapter 10 Wireless LAN
10.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the Wireless screen to enable or disable the 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless LAN, set up wireless security
between the NBG6604 and the wireless clients, and make other basic configuration changes (Section
10.2 on page 68).
• Use the Guest Wireless screen to set up multiple wireless networks on your NBG6604 (Section 10.4 on
page 72).
• Use the MAC Filter screen to allow or deny wireless stations based on their MAC addresses from
connecting to the NBG6604 (Section 10.5 on page 75).
• Use the Advanced screen to allow intra-BSS networking and set the RTS/CTS Threshold (Section 10.6 on
page 76).
• Use the WPS screen to quickly set up a wireless network with strong security, without having to
configure security settings manually (Section 10.7 on page 77).
• Use the Scheduling screen to set the times your wireless LAN is turned on and off (Section 10.8 on
page 78).
10.1.2 What You Should Know
Every wireless network must follow these basic guidelines.
• Every wireless client in the same wireless network must use the same SSID.
The SSID is the name of the wireless network. It stands for Service Set IDentity.
• If two wireless networks overlap, they should use different channels.
Like radio stations or television channels, each wireless network uses a specific channel, or frequency,
to send and receive information.
• Every wireless client in the same wireless network must use security compatible with the AP.
Security stops unauthorized devices from using the wireless network. It can also protect the
information that is sent in the wireless network.
Wireless Security Overview
The following sections introduce different types of wireless security you can set up in the wireless
network.

Normally, the AP acts like a beacon and regularly broadcasts the SSID in the area. You can hide the
SSID instead, in which case the AP does not broadcast the SSID. In addition, you should change the
default SSID to something that is difficult to guess.
This type of security is fairly weak, however, because there are ways for unauthorized devices to get the
SSID. In addition, unauthorized devices can still see the information that is sent in the wireless network.
NBG6604 User’s Guide

Chapter 10 Wireless LAN
MAC Address Filter
Every wireless client has a unique identification number, called a MAC address.1 A MAC address is
usually written using twelve hexadecimal characters2; for example, 00A0C5000002 or 00:A0:C5:00:00:02.
To get the MAC address for each wireless client, see the appropriate User’s Guide or other
documentation.
You can use the MAC address filter to tell the AP which wireless clients are allowed or not allowed to use
the wireless network. If a wireless client is allowed to use the wireless network, it still has to have the
correct settings (SSID, channel, and security). If a wireless client is not allowed to use the wireless
network, it does not matter if it has the correct settings.
This type of security does not protect the information that is sent in the wireless network. Furthermore,
there are ways for unauthorized devices to get the MAC address of an authorized wireless client. Then,
they can use that MAC address to use the wireless network.
User Authentication
You can make every user log in to the wireless network before they can use it. This is called user
authentication. However, every wireless client in the wireless network has to support IEEE 802.1x to do
this.
For wireless networks, there are two typical places to store the user names and passwords for each user.
• In the AP: this feature is called a local user database or a local database.
• In a RADIUS server: this is a server used in businesses more than in homes.
If your AP does not provide a local user database and if you do not have a RADIUS server, you cannot
set up user names and passwords for your users.
Unauthorized devices can still see the information that is sent in the wireless network, even if they cannot
use the wireless network. Furthermore, there are ways for unauthorized wireless users to get a valid user
name and password. Then, they can use that user name and password to use the wireless network.
Local user databases also have an additional limitation that is explained in the next section.
Encryption
Wireless networks can use encryption to protect the information that is sent in the wireless network.
Encryption is like a secret code. If you do not know the secret code, you cannot understand the
message.
1.
Some wireless devices, such as scanners, can detect wireless networks but cannot use wireless networks. These
kinds of wireless devices might not have MAC addresses.
2.
Hexadecimal characters are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, and F.
NBG6604 User’s Guide

Chapter 10 Wireless LAN
The types of encryption you can choose depend on the type of user authentication. (See page 65 for
information about this.)
Table 20 Types of Encryption for Each Type of Authentication
Weakest
NO AUTHENTICATION
RADIUS SERVER
No Security
WPA
WPA-PSK
Strongest
WPA2-PSK
WPA2
For example, if the wireless network has a RADIUS server, you can choose WPA or WPA2. If users do not
log in to the wireless network, you can choose no encryption, WPA-PSK, or WPA2-PSK.
Usually, you should set up the strongest encryption that every wireless client in the wireless network
supports. For example, suppose the AP does not have a local user database, and you do not have a
RADIUS server. Therefore, there is no user authentication. Suppose the wireless network has two wireless
clients. Device A only supports WPA, and device B supports WPA and WPA2. Therefore, you should set
up WPA or WPA-PSK in the wireless network.
Note: It is recommended that wireless networks use WPA-PSK, WPA, or stronger encryption.
IEEE 802.1x and WEP encryption are better than none at all, but it is still possible for
unauthorized devices to figure out the original information pretty quickly.
Note: It is not possible to use WPA-PSK, WPA or stronger encryption with a local user database.
In this case, it is better to set up stronger encryption with no authentication than to set
up weaker encryption with the local user database.
When you select WPA2 or WPA2-PSK in your NBG6604, you can also select an option (WPA/WPA-PSK
Compatible) to support WPA/WPA-PSK as well. In this case, if some wireless clients support WPA and
some support WPA2, you should set up WPA2-PSK or WPA2 (depending on the type of wireless network
login) and select the WPA/WPA-PSK Compatible option in the NBG6604.
Many types of encryption use a key to protect the information in the wireless network. The longer the
key, the stronger the encryption. Every wireless client in the wireless network must have the same key.
Guest WLAN
Guest WLAN allows you to set up a wireless network where users can access to Internet via the NBG6604
(Z), but not other networks connected to the Z. In the following figure, a guest user can access the
Internet from the guest wireless network A via Z but not the home or company network N.
Note: The home or company network N and Guest WLAN network are independent networks.
Note: Only Router mode supports guest WLAN.

WPS
WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) is an industry standard specification, defined by the WiFi Alliance. WPS
allows you to quickly set up a wireless network with strong security, without having to configure security
settings manually. Depending on the devices in your network, you can either press a button (on the
device itself, or in its configuration utility) or enter a PIN (Personal Identification Number) in the devices.
Then, they connect and set up a secure network by themselves. See how to set up a secure wireless
network using WPS in the Section 7.2 on page 38.

12.1.1 What You Can Do
• Use the UPnP screen to enable UPnP on your NBG6604 (Section 12.2 on page 84).
• Use the One Connect screen to enable or disable Wi-Fi auto-configuration (Section 12.3 on page 85).
12.2 UPnP Screen
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is a distributed, open networking standard that uses TCP/IP for simple
peer-to-peer network connectivity between devices. A UPnP device can dynamically join a network,
obtain an IP address, convey its capabilities and learn about other devices on the network. In turn, a
device can leave a network smoothly and automatically when it is no longer in use.
Use this screen to enable UPnP on your NBG6604.

12.3 ONE Connect Screen
One Connect is a Zyxel-proprietary feature. It complies with the IEEE 1905.1 standard and allows autodetection and auto-configuration.
If your wireless router supports Zyxel One Connect, NBG6604 for example, you can download and install
the Zyxel One Connect App in your mobile device to check the connection status, do speed test, turn
on or turn off the devices in your network, block or allow a device’s access and set up a guest Wi-Fi
network from the mobile device. You can even use the App to access the NBG6604’s web configurator.
The mobile device with the App installed must be connected to the NBG6604 wirelessly.

12.4 Technical Reference
The following section contains additional technical information about the NBG6604 features described
in this chapter.
NAT Traversal
UPnP NAT traversal automates the process of allowing an application to operate through NAT. UPnP
network devices can automatically configure network addressing, announce their presence in the
network to other UPnP devices and enable exchange of simple product and service descriptions. NAT
traversal allows the following:
• Dynamic port mapping
• Learning public IP addresses
• Assigning lease times to mappings
Windows Messenger is an example of an application that supports NAT traversal and UPnP.
See the NAT chapter for more information on NAT.
Cautions with UPnP
The automated nature of NAT traversal applications in establishing their own services and opening
firewall ports may present network security issues. Network information and configuration may also be
obtained and modified by users in some network environments.
When a UPnP device joins a network, it announces its presence with a multicast message. For security
reasons, the NBG6604 allows multicast messages on the LAN only.
All UPnP-enabled devices may communicate freely with each other without additional configuration.
Disable UPnP if this is not your intention.

Security
13.1 Overview
Use these screens to enable and configure the firewall that protects your NBG6604 and your LAN from
unwanted or malicious traffic.
Enable the firewall to protect your LAN computers from attacks by hackers on the Internet and control
access between the LAN and WAN. By default the firewall:
• Allows traffic that originates from your LAN computers to go to all of the networks.
• Blocks traffic that originates on the other networks from going to the LAN.
The following figure illustrates the default firewall action. User A can initiate an IM (Instant Messaging)
session from the LAN to the WAN (1). Return traffic for this session is also allowed (2). However other traffic
initiated from the WAN is blocked (3 and 4).

13.1.2 What You Need To Know
The following terms and concepts may help as you read through this chapter.
About the NBG6604 Firewall
The NBG6604’s firewall feature physically separates the LAN and the WAN and acts as a secure
gateway for all data passing between the networks.
It is a stateful inspection firewall and is designed to protect against Denial of Service attacks when
activated (click the IPv4 Firewall tab under Security and then click the Enable Firewall check box). The
NBG6604's purpose is to allow a private Local Area Network (LAN) to be securely connected to the
Internet. The NBG6604 can be used to prevent theft, destruction and modification of data, as well as log
events, which may be important to the security of your network.
The NBG6604 is installed between the LAN and a broadband modem connecting to the Internet. This
allows it to act as a secure gateway for all data passing between the Internet and the LAN.
The NBG6604 has one Ethernet WAN port and four Ethernet LAN ports, which are used to physically
separate the network into two areas. The WAN (Wide Area Network) port attaches to the broadband
(cable or DSL) modem to the Internet.
The Local Area Network (LAN) port attaches to a network of computers, which needs security from the
outside world. These computers will have access to Internet services such as e-mail, FTP and the World
Wide Web. However, "inbound access" is not allowed (by default) unless the remote host is authorized to
use a specific service.
Guidelines For Enhancing Security With Your Firewall
1
Change the default password via Web Configurator.
2
Think about access control before you connect to the network in any way, including attaching a
modem to the port.
3
Limit who can access your router.
4
Don't enable any local service (such as NTP) that you don't use. Any enabled service could present a
potential security risk. A determined hacker might be able to find creative ways to misuse the enabled
services to access the firewall or the network.
5
For local services that are enabled, protect against misuse. Protect by configuring the services to
communicate only with specific peers, and protect by configuring rules to block packets for the services
at specific interfaces.
6
Protect against IP spoofing by making sure the firewall is active.
7
Keep the firewall in a secured (locked) room.

changed to 10.0.0.1 automatically. See Auto-IP Change on page 52 for more information.
The default IP address of the NBG6604 in Access Point Mode is 192.168.1.2.
7
If you changed the IP address and have forgotten it, you might get the IP address of the NBG6604 in
Router Mode by looking up the IP address of the default gateway for your computer. To do this in most
Windows computers, click Start > Run, enter cmd, and then enter ipconfig. The IP address of the Default
Gateway might be the IP address of the NBG6604 (it depends on the network), so enter this IP address in
your Internet browser.
8
If your NBG6604 in Access Point Mode is a DHCP client, you can find your IP address from the DHCP
server. This information is only available from the DHCP server which allocates IP addresses on your
network. Find this information directly from the DHCP server or contact your system administrator for
more information.
9
Reset your NBG6604 to change all settings back to their default. This means your current settings are lost.
See Section 15.5 on page 105 in the Troubleshooting for information on resetting your NBG6604.

• If the NBG6604 is in Router Mode, make sure the WAN port is connected to a broadband modem or
router with Internet access. Your computer and the NBG6604 should be in the same subnet.
• If the NBG6604 is in Access Point Mode, make sure the WAN port is connected to a broadband
modem or router with Internet access and your computer is set to obtain an dynamic IP address.
3
If the NBG6604 is in Router Mode, make sure you entered your ISP account information correctly in the
wizard or the WAN screen. These fields are case-sensitive, so make sure [Caps Lock] is not on.
4
If you are trying to access the Internet wirelessly, make sure the wireless settings in the wireless client are
the same as the settings in the AP.
5
Disconnect all the cables from your device, and follow the directions in the Quick Start Guide again.
6
If the problem continues, contact your ISP.
I cannot access the Internet anymore. I had access to the Internet (with the NBG6604), but my
Internet connection is not available anymore.
1
Check the hardware connections, and make sure the LEDs are behaving as expected. See the Quick
Start Guide and Section 1.7 on page 11.
2
Reboot the NBG6604.
3
If the problem continues, contact your ISP.
The Internet connection is slow or intermittent.
1
There might be a lot of traffic on the network. Look at the LEDs, and check Section 1.7 on page 11. If the
NBG6604 is sending or receiving a lot of information, try closing some programs that use the Internet,
especially peer-to-peer applications.
2
Check the signal strength. If the signal strength is low, try moving the NBG6604 closer to the AP if possible,
and look around to see if there are any devices that might be interfering with the wireless network (for
example, microwaves, other wireless networks, and so on).
3
Reboot the NBG6604.
4
If the problem continues, contact the network administrator or vendor, or try one of the advanced
suggestions.
Advanced Suggestion

15.5 Resetting the NBG6604 to Its Factory Defaults
If you reset the NBG6604, you lose all of the changes you have made. The NBG6604 re-loads its default
settings, and the password resets to 1234. You have to make all of your changes again.
You will lose all of your changes when you push the RESET button.
To reset the NBG6604:
1
Make sure the power LED is on.
2
Press the RESET button for one to four seconds to restart/reboot the NBG6604.
3
Press the RESET button for longer than five seconds to set the NBG6604 back to its factory-default
configurations.
If the NBG6604 restarts automatically, wait for the NBG6604 to finish restarting, and log in to the Web
Configurator. The password is “1234”.
If the NBG6604 does not restart automatically, disconnect and reconnect the NBG6604’s power. Then,
follow the directions above again.
15.6 Wireless Connections
I cannot access the NBG6604 or ping any computer from the WLAN.
1
Make sure the wireless LAN is enabled on the NBG6604.
2
Make sure the wireless adapter on your computer is working properly.
3
Make sure the wireless adapter installed on your computer is IEEE 802.11 compatible and supports the
same wireless standard as the NBG6604.
4
Make sure your computer (with a wireless adapter installed) is within the transmission range of the
NBG6604.
5
Check that both the NBG6604 and the wireless adapter on your computer are using the same wireless
and wireless security settings.
6
Make sure traffic between the WLAN and the LAN is not blocked by the firewall on the NBG6604.
7
Make sure you allow the NBG6604 to be remotely accessed through the WLAN interface. Check your
remote management settings.
• See the chapter on Wireless LAN in the User’s Guide for more information.
NBG6604 User’s Guide

Chapter 15 Troubleshooting
I cannot access the Web Configurator after I switched to AP mode.
When you change from router mode to AP mode, your computer must have an IP address in the range
between “192.168.1.3” and “192.168.1.254”.
Refer to Appendix B on page 113 for instructions on how to change your computer’s IP address.
What factors may cause intermittent or unstabled wireless connection? How can I solve this
problem?
The following factors may cause interference:
• Obstacles: walls, ceilings, furniture, and so on.
• Building Materials: metal doors, aluminum studs.
• Electrical devices: microwaves, monitors, electric motors, cordless phones, and other wireless devices.
To optimize the speed and quality of your wireless connection, you can:
• Move your wireless device closer to the AP if the signal strength is low.
• Reduce wireless interference that may be caused by other wireless networks or surrounding wireless
electronics such as cordless phones.
• Place the AP where there are minimum obstacles (such as walls and ceilings) between the AP and
the wireless client.
• Reduce the number of wireless clients connecting to the same AP simultaneously, or add additional
APs if necessary.
• Try closing some programs that use the Internet, especially peer-to-peer applications. If the wireless
client is sending or receiving a lot of information, it may have too many programs open that use the
Internet.
• Position the antennas for best reception. If the AP is placed on a table or floor, point the antennas
upwards. If the AP is placed at a high position, point the antennas downwards. Try pointing the
antennas in different directions and check which provides the strongest signal to the wireless clients.
