I have changed my home network and have reset my ZyxelWRE6505 to factory settings. I want to configure it in a new place. I have tried to follow the set up guide. I am supposed to turn on the WRE6505 and connect my computer to the wireless network form the ZyxelWRE6505 and then go to zyxelsetup login site. 1. The network from ZyxelWRE6505 has no internet connection. 2. So I try to connect via my network with a connection The site zyxelsetup login site seems to be non existing. What am I doing wrong?

    Because WRE6505 hasn't established the connection with your router to cause no Internet connection.

    2. So I try to connect via my network with a connection The site zyxelsetup login site seems to be non existing. What am I doing wrong?
    What do you mean? You also can find WRE6505's IP address on the DHCP table of your router, if WRE6505 is already connected to your router.

    You can download user guide and quick start guide to check from below link.

    • Yes, exactly that is the problem; How do I get the WRE6505 connected with my router before it is set up? And is it necessary? My router is connected

    • No, the WRE6505 is not connected to anything

    • Yes I have tried these guides, but everything stops because the WRE6505 is not connected to the internet and because I cant find any zyxelsetup login site

    If WRE6505 is AP mode. (Internet---Router---WRE6505---Laptop, --- : Ethernet Connection)
    You should able to find its IP address on the DHCP table of your router or use IP scan tool to find.

    Then use its IP address to login WRE6505's web interface to configure it.

    If WRE6505 is Repeater mode. (WRE6505---Laptop, --- : Ethernet Connection)
    Please check IP address of your laptop, it should be 192.168.1.X.

    Then use http://192.168.1.2 or http://zyxelsetup to login WRE6505's web interface to configure it
