How do I install the USB driver for the Zyxel Prestige 623/660 router with Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows ME?

A "driver" is a piece of software that tells your computer how to work with a peripheral device such as a printer, scanner or modem. The Prestige CD contains its drivers for Windows 98 (second edition), Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The USB function is incompatible with Macintosh, therefore you need to use the Ethernet Cable.

It should take just a few minutes to follow these instructions for installing the appropriate driver for Windows.
Note:You should first save your work and close any open Windows applications.

  1. Turn on your PC as normal. When Windows has finished loading, connect the Prestige to your PC using the supplied USB cable. (Plug the square end of the USB cable into the back of your Prestige and the rectangular end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your computer.) Windows will automatically detect your new modem using "Plug and Play" and will launch a wizard that offers to install driver software for you. Click Next to continue.

  2. On the next screen, choose the option to "Search for the best driver" and click Next.

  3. Windows now needs to be told where to locate the driver software for installation. Choose the option to "Specify a location" and enter D:\Driver where D: represents the drive letter for your CD drive.

    The actual drive letter for your CD may vary depending on your PC configuration. You may also choose to "browse" to select the correct drive and directory where \DRIVER is located if you are unsure of the drive letter for your CD drive.

  4. When Windows locates the driver on the CD, select the "The updated driver (Recommended)" option and click Next to continue:

  5. Windows should now tell you that it is ready to install the driver software that it has located on the CD. Click Next to continue.

    The installation process will copy files from the driver CD to your PC.

  6. Depending on your Windows configuration, the installation process may determine that additional components of Windows need to be installed. These are Microsoft Windows files, which are contained on your Windows CD ROM and not on the Prestige CD ROM, so you will be prompted to insert your Windows CD ROM in the CD drive if required:

  7. When the installation has completed, you should see the screen pictured below.

  8. As a final step, the installation will ask to re-start the PC. Click YES to re-start– but first ensure that you have placed the Prestige CD back into the CD drive if you replaced it with the Windows CD during the install process (and that you have saved any open files).
