CD-R King's ADSL Kit

At PhP 880, CD-R King’s ADSL kit is the cheapest modem/wifi router you can find in any store right now. Problem is, it won’t work out of the box for most people.

This post will explain how I replaced my PLDT DSL modem + D-Link wifi router setup with this unbelievably cheap device.


Overview

As mentioned in my original post on the device, CD-R King’s ADSL kit is actually a ZyXEL P-660HW-61 modem/wifi router. It is a bit outdated, leaving me to believe that CD-R King was able to get a hold of a large surplus of this device from Telefonica’s Chinese contractor at a dirt-cheap price.

The problem with this device is that people might think it’s a wifi router. It’s not… well technically. It doesn’t have an ethernet port at the back for connecting to another router, instead it has a phone jack for DSL.

That’s right, it’s primarily a modem. The 4-port router and 802.11g wifi was just added to make this an all-in-one package. People buying this modem thinking it is a router are going to be pissed.

On the other hand, people buying this modem thinking it would work out of the box with their DSL will be surprised to find out that it doesn’t. The default settings are for Telefonica, a Spanish ISP. I’ll be discussing below how to change the settings to work with PLDT myDSL.

Make the device work for PLDT myDSL

Before you can connect to the modem, you must set your computer’s IP address as static and use the modem as the default gateway. This can be done by going to the Control Panel -> Network Connections -> right click ethernet connection -> Properties / General Tab -> select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) -> Properties.

For Vista users, use Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> View network status and tasks -> Manage network connections -> right click ethernet connection -> Properties / General Tab -> select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) -> Properties.

IP 192.168.1.1, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.1

Follow the settings above. Connect the modem to your computer afterwards.

There are two things that prevent you from using the modem with your DSL connection. First is the WAN settings. To change this, go to http://192.168.1.1/. The password should be 1234.

Router settings

Go to Advanced Setup / WAN -> WAN Setup. Use the settings above if you’re in Metro Manila and are using the new IPDSLAM network. Provincial users might have to change their VCI to 35. If you’re still using the old PPPoE network, change the encapsulation to PPPoE and add your credentials.

If you’ve seen the settings for the ZyXEL modem provided by PLDT, you might find it weird that we’re using ENET ENCAP here instead of RFC 1483. I also personally find it weird–I don’t know why the latter doesn’t work with the P-660HW-61.

Anyway, we’re not done yet. Open your command prompt (PuTTy is fine too) and telnet to the modem via

telnet 192.168.1.1

Enter 1234 as password. Now let’s open the command interpreter mode.

Enter Menu Selection Number: 24

Enter Menu Selection Number: 8

ras> wan adsl opencmd adsl2+

This will now enable ADSL2+ in your modem.

Revert your network settings back to “Obtain an IP address automatically” and restart the modem. You should now be able to connect to the internet.

If you want to change your router’s settings, you can open 192.168.1.1 in your browser (no need for static IP address because you’ve already set the modem to “router” mode). The port forwarding settings are weird so I suggest you go to PortForward.com for more information.

There you go, a working modem/wifi router at a third (fourth? fifth?) of the cost.

Update: Globe users can try the settings at the post near the end of this link.

    Globe’s settings will probably be different. Assuming your original modem is Prolink H9200. you can check the settings by going to http://192.168.1.1/ , username: admin, password: “admin” (or “password”). If you can enter the configuration screens and the encapsulation is not PPPoE, you can just copy the settings to the ZyXEL router.

    If not, you’ll have to figure out the username and password of your account. These two links might help.

    Bry, the last command, “ras> wan adsl opencmd adsl+”, is it “adsl+” or “adsl2+”? I bought that same device with the same purpose as you to combine modem+router+wireless access. after putting in that last command and restarting the modem nothing happened. the dsl led did not lit up.

    You sir, are a gentleman, a genius, and a scholar.

    I just got this piece of hardware and spent a good three hours trying to translate the Spanish instructions with my aging grandfather. The results were ugly, to say the least.

    But, finally, I got it to work. All thanks to you.

    One question, though. Is it possible to activate the wifi in this thing?

    @halo8888

    It should be wan adsl opencmd adsl2+. Thanks for pointing it out!

    If it isn’t working, you can try out wan adsl opencmd multimode or the other modes listed after entering wan adsl opencmd. Note that the modem takes around a minute before it can detect the dsl from your phone line.

    @John

    AFAIK, the wifi should work out of the box, maybe with a little tweaking from the Advanced Settings – Wireless LAN – Wireless of http://192.168.1.1/. If the WLAN lights up, it should be a sign that the wifi is working.

    If you still can’t connect, another option is to restart both the router and your wifi device/computer. If that doesn’t work, you may have to upgrade your firmware.

    for me, the multimode is the one that worked. is the dsl led light suppose to constantly flashing when it it working properly, bry? that is what I’m getting. from your experience does the light lit up differently with adsl2+ and multimode?

    also about the wlan/wifi @john, it is not also enabled at default. you have to enable it from the gui.

    Yes, the DSL/PPP LED should be flashing quickly when you’re connected to the internet. When you start the modem it’s usually off – on (startup) – blinking (detecting dsl) – blinking quickly (connected).

    I personally haven’t tried multimode yet, but I’ve read in some Spanish sites that multimode sometimes works when adsl2+ doesn’t. Don’t know if the LED lights up differently depending on mode, though.

    one thing with this device(with what i got anyway), I think is an older firmware version that yours, bry, it does not have a firewall config settings. it’s dated 2005. Also cdrking took out the nic the came with the box.

    do we really need to open the case and connect wires to flash the firmware? is there another way?

    btw, can we put open nas with the firmware?

    Yes, the device CD-R King is selling has V3.40(PT.0)b46 (10/5/2005 9:54:21) firmware and, as you said, you also can’t change the firewall settings under this firmware version. This is one of the main reasons why you might want to upgrade this modem’s firmware.

    They also took out the NIC, probably to repackage and sell it as another product.

    I’ve tried uploading via FTP but it seems the Bootbase (basicaly the BIOS or OS of the device) doesn’t accept non-Telefonica firmware, hence my attempt at downgrading the Bootbase first before upgrading the firmware. You can try using TFTP, but I think the Bootbase will still reject it. Upgrading via serial cable is still the most reliable way.

    As for OpenNAS(?) or any other third party firmware, you’ll need to overwrite the Bootbase for them to work.

    @ruby

    Aside from changing the encapsulation to PPPoE, you can also try the various modes listed in the command interpreter after entering wan adsl opencmd. It’s possible that your ISP is not using ADSL2+ so the setting above won’t work.

    Have your done the “wan adsl opencmd adsl2+” part? If so, the standard should show “Standard:ADSL2+”.

    I bought mine at the Greenbelt branch. The Makati/Ayala area has a lot of branches you could choose from, the largest of which would be the branch along Arnaiz avenue (near the Park Square branch, just exit Park Square from there and look to the left across the street).

    BTW, CD-R King’s now selling other types of modem/routers nowadays. Some are 100 pesos cheaper (PhP 780) but I think they don’t have as many features like Dynamic DNS.

    Yes. gumana without the the firmware upgrade. I just needed to set it to adsl2+. Telefonica parin firmware but i dont really need all the other features like the firewall etc. so I never tried changing it.

    Off Topic, may nagbebenta ng same model sa TipidPC dati at P1.5k in what looks like an actual Zyxel branded packaging. If I didn’t know how to respect posts, I would’ve hijacked his IFS, directed people to CDR King and provided them with the know-how.

    Back on topic about CDR King’s 660HW. The one I got to work was in fact a replacement. The one I originally bought did not synch. It did not even detect the dsl signal. I’m not sure if changing dsl modes would have fixed it though. So If somebody reads this and thinks about buying one from cdr king, be sure you test it right away since there is no way you can actually check it in their stores and that they only provide a 1 week replacement warranty on this.

    @halo888, Im not sure if you bought your 660HW before I did but in case you got yours at waltermart munoz, that modem might have been the first one I bought since I forgot (?) to return the NIC that came along with it.

    Again, thanks Bryan, It has been two months since and it’s still running.

    @Rene Since nakaka-connect naman yung wireless, I think walang problema sa wireless settings.

    Try mong i-check kung iba yung binibigay na IP address every time ka magco-connect ng device sa router. Kung pare-pareho, baka may mali kang setting sa LAN e.g. maliit yung DHCP IP address range na linagay mo.

    Kung hindi parin gumagana, most likely may defect nga yung unit mo. Balita ko medyo mataas yung defect rate nitong modem na ito e..

    @Rene Di na kailangan gawin yung Telnet kung nakaka-connect naman sa Internet. By default kasi di siya naka-ADSL2+ kaya di siya makaka-connect sa Internet; baka binago na ng CD-R King para di na hassle sa mga tao.

    I also bought this router today (Nov 29, 2009) at CD-R King SM Davao. Thanks to your guide, I manage to connect 2 PC’s to the Internet. However I still had have to use the PLDT-supplied ZyXEL modem (P-660R-D1) and connect it to the router. I tried using the “wan adsl opencmd” commands (I tried “t1.413”, “adsl2”, “adsl2+”, and “gdmt”) but “wan adsl opmode” still results to “ADSL_G.lite”. P-660R-D1 will output “ADSL_G.dmt”
    Right now, I’m using the 2 devices (P-660R-D1 and P-660HW-61) instead of just 1 (P-660HW-61). Are there any way to configure this modem-router to use “ADSL_G.dmt”? Because “ADSL_G.lite” cannot connect to the Internet. Thanx in advace for your replies.

    Have you tried “wan adsl opencmd multimode”?

    Hi Bry,

    Thanx for the reply.
    Yes, I’ve tried “wan adsl opencmd multimode”, but “wan adsl opmode” still results to “ADSL_G.lite”.
    Maybe the modem component of my unit’s is defective. I hope that there is still hope.

    I don’t have any problems with this now, but before there is even I did configure it. I was the problem of PLDT. Now I have a latency issue with them, I modified my p600 modem (PLDT Issue), changed to gdmt using telnet. Lowered my latency for about 10-20ms. I haven’t tried it on the cdrking router, I just saw this and will try changing it to gdmt mode later when I get back and I will post if it will reduce my latency …hope so. but still this is nice as a cheapo unit from cdrking, I dont have any issues with wireless.We can make a mod on the antenna to make it like a sat dish to be able to increase the signal power.. ^_^v

    P.S.
    PLDC, i mean PLDT sucks…

    Nope, I haven’t tried doing that with this router.

    @anji

    Sorry, I don’t know the VCI/VCP settings for Globe so I don’t think I can help you with that. Have you tried accessing your old modem for the settings?

    Hi,
    Just tell you my story. Was using a DSL-1 PLDT Modem since abt. 4 Years. It was always working fine. But the last 1/2 year I get more and more problems. At the last it stops 20-30 times a day.
    The PLDT techn. are here several times but the result was not good at all. Finally I was trying the “Hint” of buying the Telefonica Modem. Putting in the configuration and within 10 minutes I have had a good working Modem. No problems at all. Just working fine. I only have one question:
    Please can you tell me the changes on the configuration to access one of the computers from “outside”. At the LAN it work fine and assigning port 82 to the configurator works fine, but I cannot access the computer from the WAN. The configurator is accessable fine from the WAN when I call them with port 82. Please can you help me to configure the Modem. I’m sure it is a command via Telnet? but I’m not so comfortable with them and I don’t like to make a GOOD working Modem a not working one Hi.

    Regards Erwin

    Are you talking about port forwarding? If so, there’s a link in the post above to the PortForward.com guide for the modem.

    Hi Bry,
    Thanks for your fast replay. Unfortunatly it was a big mistake. My Virusscanners standing direkt on his hands and I also have had to reload part of the operatingsystem from SP3. Thanks God the computer is still running good. So I will not reload this bag of Virusses (PortForeard.com).
    By the way what I wont is just going in from the Internet via the Modem to one of my Computers where an Internet-Site is running. I use 3 Computers on the Modem plus a Internet-Phone. All having fixed Adr. in the Network. The Problem is, I can easy go to the Site from one of the other computers on the LAN but I’m not able to access them from the Internet (WAN). It must be a configuration option on the Modem (Telelink) where I’m not so good in.

    You don’t need to download anything from the site so you shouldn’t be getting any viruses from there. You just need to read the default guide to know how to forward the port to the outside world.

    I’m also assuming that you’re running on a static IP address so you didn’t have to setup DynDNS for routing.

  97. hello says:

    i have with a problem with this modem router sir, it doesn’t seem to accomodate 3 connections. it works fine when there is only one laptop connected via wireless and one desktop connected via cable. now that there is another one laptop at home, when the two laptops connect to the internet the desktop lost it’s internet connection. anyone has a solution for this? do i have to reconfigure the modem?

  98. ray says:

    can you please tell me which ADSL WIFI is better? The ZyXEL P-660HW-61 or the CERBERUS ROUTER ADSL WIFI 802.11G which is also available in CD-R king? I am planning on setting a wifi home connection.

  99. mark says:

    thank you for the blog ^^, TWO THUMBS UP!!!

  100. Hi, I have a problem with the Wi-Fi. I already did all of your instructions, and it is already working as a modem. But the problem is my iPod Touch 4G is connected to it but it isn’t transmitting internet connection. Another is that the Wi-Fi name and password is really hard to change, what can you say about this? I really need your help please :( PM As Soon As Possible

  101. nina says:

    hi, the settings you posted above worked (for more than a year already) on my telefonica router and pldt dsl until a few days ago when i can’t connect to the internet. problem is, everytime na magcoconnect it says error 105: net::err_name_not resolved; gumagana naman lahat sa router, may ilaw lahat pero di pa rin maka connect.
    na try ko na ireconfigure, reset yung modem , pinalitan ko na yung opencmd sa multi…pero wala pa rin

    ano pa kaya pwede ko gawin?

  102. oliver says:

    same problem as @nina above. i already did a reset on the router but still could not browse to any website. seems like a DNS problem to me. one thing i noticed is that the adsl type is set to g.lite even if i set it to adsl2+ or multimode. weird thing is our torrent client (utorrent) is able to download and seed even if web pages cannot be visited. anyone encountered this and has a fix?

  103. Loloi says:

    Hi guys!

    Just got a couple of Telefonica’s from CDRKing for an amazing PhP380.00 each. Can anyone beat that price (for a re-branded Zyxel P660HW-61)??

    Hurry up, there are very few units left (if you can find one at all!!!)

  104. betsyroa says:

    Hi Nina & Oliver,

    u may try changing your DNS to google’s public dns – PRIMARY: 8.8.8.8 SECONDARY:8.8.4.4

    Connection (either Wireless or LAN) Properties, Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

    FYI:
    The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:
    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4
    The Google Public DNS IPv6 addresses are as follows:
    2001:4860:4860::8888
    2001:4860:4860::8844

    documentation – http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html

    hope this helps :)

  105. betsyroa says:

    actually, pwede na rin pala na ichange yung sa router mismo.

    192.168.1.1 > username 1234, password 1234 (if default) > advanced setup > LAN
    just change the primary & secondary DNS under the DHCP settings.
