You will need to assign a different ip address to the Westell modem - I am assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ip address 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 to the modem.
Your Wireless router should have come with a CD. Insert the CD into your computer and follow it step by step. If it did not come with it here is a basic wiring setup. From wall jack to Westell modem, From modem to uplink port on Max G router. Reboot Westell modem. T Everything should auto-configure unless you need a username and password for your DLS. If so you will need to program this into your router.
if this is the first time you're trying to connect your laptop with the gateway, if this is a windows operating system, you have to go to your wireless zero configuration so that windows can automatically configure the wireless connection of your laptop. you cann see that by clicking on start, and then run, and then type in the box services.msc, and then search for wireless zero configuration click on start if the service has not yet started. if this doesn't work check your built in wireless adapter, uninstall and reinstall it. try to access your westell by typing in 192.168.1.1 in the internet explorer address bar. the default username and password for that is admin and password. you can configure the wireless settings in the modem by going here. the WEP key for your wireless connection can be found below your westell modem/router. if i'm not mistaken this is the westell 327 versalink right? you can also find out if your laptop is connected to your modem by checking your computer's ip address. it should be 192.168.1.xx. if it's like this, your laptop is connected to your 327w. if it's a 169.xxxx ip address, you're not connected to the modem. the best way to configure your laptop and modem wirelessly is to configure it while you're connected using an ethernet cable.
If the 327 was never set up for wireless you need to connect to it with an Ethernet cable and plug that into your Mac and one of the RJ45 ports on the back of the 327. Type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser, this should take you to the Westell Home Page (Your Router). The default for wireless in this router is disable. There are tabs across the top on the page, select Configuration>Wireless>Basic. This opens the Wireless Operation Window. If Wireless is disabled, click arrow to enable. You can also enable and disable encryption in this same window and if you choose to use the basic WEP in the device, the WEP key is on the label on the bottom of the router. If all this is good your laptop should be able to detect the wireless connection, the default is the serial number on the bottom of the router so you will know which connection is yours. REMEMBER TO CLICK SAVE before exiting the window! Hope this helps.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this to setup your router and see if this help solve your problem
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
the default password for your westell 327 is username: admin and password: password, the admin admin combination is what usually isp providers such as verizon tells you to put in after configuring it for the first time. 192.168.1.1 is the url add for you to be able to access your westell 327. after accessing your modem you can find the WEP key below the modem, after enabling the security of your network the WEP kep is your default security password
Yes there is an easier way! Just setup the router as you would any normal setup. Follow the directions to set it up for the first time. What you want to do is have the put in all of your information that you need for it to communicate with your Modem. This will automatically place the router onto your network. Now the part that I believe you want is for this to be secure! Well setup either a WEP or WPA these are both encryption Protocols that will denie access to anyone other than you or someone you allow to access your network wirelessly.
You do not really have to go through all of the trouble of setting up specifics. As long as the two devices communicate the router and the modem will do the rest. I do this everyday in my daily work day! Anymore quesitons please feel free to ask!
