How do I prepare the Zyxel Prestige 623/660 router for installation?
  1. Plug the power adapter into a mains socket. Plug the other end into the socket marked “power” on the rear of the router.

  2. Connect one end of the supplied RJ11 telephone cable to the socket marked “DSL” on the rear of your router and the other end to the socket marked “DSL/HPN” on your double-port ADSL microfilter, which you connected to your phone line during microfilter installation.

  3. Turn on the router by pressing the ‘power’ button on the back.

  4. Check that the ‘PWR’ LED has come on to ensure that power is being supplied to the device.

  5. After the router has completed its start-up procedures, the ‘PWR’ and ‘SYS’ lights on the front should both be lit. (The SYS light will flicker at first while power-on self tests are performed.)




    Please note:There is a button marked RESET at the rear of your P623/660. You will typically only need to use this button if you’ve forgotten the Prestige’s password. It returns the Prestige to the factory defaults (password is 1234, LAN IP address 192.168.1.1 etc. See the User’s Guide (contained in Adobe Acrobat PDF format on the P623 CD) for more details.
