I have another computer i want to install in the up stairs.do i need another dsl router to connect to it????.


If you have a Westell 6100, it's just a modem meant to connect a single computer to the Internet. It has the jack where you plug in the cord to your DSL phone line, and an Ethernet jack so you can plug in your computer. You can't have more than one of these connected to the phone line because of address conflicts that would result.

What you need is a wireless router so your Internet connection can be shared by several computers. Most service providers are installing Westell models that combine the modem and a 4-port wired/wireless router for new customers now. Since you have the modem only, you'll need to supply the router. The wireless function lets you use the upstairs computer without having to run a network cable to connect it. That's much cleaner and simpler. There will be four connectors on the back of the router for wired computers or other things (such as a network printer) you might want to connect. You still have only one connection to your DSL line, but now you can hook up several computers at once.

There are several companies making wireless routers and they all do pretty much the same thing. Netgear, Linksys and D-Link are the most common, and you can buy a wireless router at almost any retailer that sells computers. You can also find them online from companies like TigerDirect or Newegg. Other than staying with one of the major brands (it's easier to find support for those if you need it), there's not much to recommend one kind over another.

It's pretty easy to install a wireless router and set up your wireless network. They all come with a CD containing setup software that will guide you through the process. You'll have that upstairs machine on line in no time.

Wireless Connection

  1. Write down your wireless network name (SSID -example 2WIRExxx) and the security key (WEP key)
    • If you are using an 3rd party(PlayStation) wireless networking adapter (sold separately from your system), connect the USB connector to the USB port on the back of the console. Do not use the front USB ports.
  2. Turn on your console and wireless device.
    • If you have a wireless-to-Ethernet bridge, turn on the device.
    • If you have an 3rd party (PlayStation) wireless networking adapter, the device turns on automatically with the console.
  3. Turn on your 3rd party(PlayStation) console.
    • If this is the first time you are turning on your console, complete the initial setup and create a profile before continuing.
  4. In the System area of the 3rd party(PlayStation) dashboard, select "Network Settings."
  5. Select "Edit Settings."
  6. From the Basic Settings tab, select "Wireless Mode."
    • You are asked to set your locale if you have not set it on the console. Your locale is the country or region from where you are connecting to3rd party(PlayStation) Live.
  7. Is your wireless network name (SSID - 2WIRExxx) displayed on the screen?
    • If it is displayed, select it.
    • If it is not displayed because you are connecting to a wireless network where the network name is not being broadcast, choose "Specify Unlisted Network". Select the security type for the network, and enter the wireless security settings for the network.
  8. Enter the WEP Key.
    • If encryption is disabled on your HomePortal, you will not have the option to enter wireless security settings.
  9. When prompted, select Test Xbox Live.
If the Xbox Live test reports Connected, congratulations! You are now successfully connected your Xbox 360 console to Xbox Live. Select "Edit Settings" to review your settings or Xbox dashboard (Y button) to begin gaming.

Can't connect to internet through Netgear WRG into Speedtouch DSL


Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

Can I use old 2wire router to connect PC to new wireless router?


Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.

Let me know if you need any further help regarding this.

Creating a secure internet connection


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

Wireless routers


Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.

Wireless configuration


What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC. This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection. Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet. Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
