This guide will help you configure your zyxel router to enable its routing capabilities so you can be able to share the internet connection without using a router.
There is no need to follow this guide if you have a separate router like linksys, dlink, edimax, tplink, etc. all configuration should be done on your router, leave your modem alone… default modem settings is bridge mode.
Although you can follow this guide, set your modem to router mode and still use a separate router, but that would result in a double router connections. that also means double port forwarding rules.
You may need to set a static IP address on your computer first before
you can access the web config.
computer IP: 192.168.1.33
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.1.1
save settings and reboot.
after restarting, on your web browser type 192.168.1.1
you need to login as an admin account on your modem to be able to see and make changes to these settings… otherwise you would only see the status page… use this username/password to login as admin.
this is the status page when in bridge mode… take note of VPI / VCI value here and use it on the next configuration page…
