Multi-media Auto Provisioner version 2, developed by ZyXEL, is a driver application bundled with different kinds of Zyxel devices, such as routers and wireless LAN, that enable users to connect to the Internet. The driver supports Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 98, 2000, and XP, and the devices it supports are the P-660H Series ADSL 2+ 4-port Gateway, the P-661H Series ADSL 2+ Security Gateway, and the P-661HW Series 802.11g Wireless ADSL2+ Gateway.
The driver is packaged in a Self Installation Kit with an easy-to-use interface that guides users through the process of hardware installation, as well as network configuration. The interface contains the instructions and comes with animated displays to enable users of all skill levels to easily understand what needs to be done to ensure that the hardware functions as it is supposed to. The Multi-media Auto Provisioner streamlines the product installation and makes it a simple, five-step process for all users.
There are two stages in using the application. One is the Installation Tutorial, which provides users with a product overview of the device and gives an explanation of how to set up and connect the hardware properly. The other is the Configuration Genie, which launches after the physical connections are completed. In this stage, the application will check the connection, detect the online access settings, and configure the user’s device, before finally connecting to the Internet. Those with wireless devices will then proceed to the WLAN setup through a pop-up window.
