How do I install the Zyxel Prestige 623/660 router using the Ethernet cable?
This is the preferred method of connecting your computer to the Prestige 623/660 – if your computer has an available Ethernet network port.

Please note: If your computer does NOT have an Ethernet port available, you should click the link at the bottom of this page relevant to your Operating System for assistance installing the USB driver.

Connecting the Ethernet Cable

Connect the Ethernet cable supplied with the router between the Ethernet port on your desktop or notebook PC or Macintosh and the port labelled “LAN 10/100M” on the rear of the Prestige. This port is “auto-negotiating” – so it will automatically work with either a 10mb or 100mb computer network card.

After you have connected the Ethernet cable, the 10M/100M light on the front of the router should light within a few seconds, indicating that an Ethernet connection has been established.

Note: The Prestige is configured to act as a “DHCP server”. This means it automatically assigns an IP network address to your computer if it is configured to accept a “dynamic IP address”. Since new computers are normally configured this way, most users need only plug the ethernet cable into their PC – and then go straight to the router configuration steps found here
