Connectivity Issues between Intel Evo Laptop and Zyxel Home Router

Hello Zyxel Community,

I'm facing connectivity issues between my Intel Evo laptop and Zyxel home router, and I'm seeking assistance and insights from the community to address these concerns. Your expertise and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Unstable Wireless Connection: When connecting my Intel Evo laptop to my Zyxel home router's wireless network, I experience frequent disconnections and unstable connectivity. The wireless connection may drop intermittently or exhibit slow and unreliable speeds. These issues disrupt my ability to work online, stream media, or access cloud services seamlessly.

Limited Range and Signal Strength: I've noticed that the wireless signal strength and range of my Zyxel home router seem to be limited when connecting with my Intel Evo laptop. Even when in close proximity to the router, the signal may be weak, leading to diminished network performance and limited coverage within my home environment.

Inconsistent LAN Connection: When connecting my Intel Evo laptop to the Zyxel home router via a LAN cable, I experience inconsistent connectivity. The LAN connection may frequently disconnect and reconnect, resulting in interrupted access to local network resources, printers, or NAS devices. This inconsistency affects my ability to transfer files or stream media reliably within the local network.

Compatibility Issues with Zyxel Home Router Features: I suspect there might be compatibility issues between certain features or settings of my Zyxel home router and my Intel Evo laptop. Specific functionalities such as DHCP, port forwarding, or firewall configurations may not work as expected, causing potential conflicts or limited functionality when trying to optimize network performance or security.

I have attempted troubleshooting steps, including updating firmware on the Zyxel home router, resetting network settings, and ensuring the latest drivers on my laptop. However, these connectivity issues persist, suggesting a potential concern specific to the interaction between Intel Evo laptops and Zyxel home routers.

If any members of the Zyxel community have encountered similar connectivity issues with Intel Evo laptops or have suggestions for troubleshooting and resolving these problems, I would greatly appreciate your insights. Let's collaborate and find solutions to enhance the compatibility and performance between Intel Evo laptops and Zyxel home routers.
