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.

I have a Westel wirespeed. Can I hook up a


The Valet Plus manual shows rear connections for 4 wired computers (like most routers), so you would plug your work computer into one of those. The yellow Internet port on the back of the Valet would connect to the modem's Ethernet jack (also yellow, I believe; that's the standard color coding). If you need full setup information you can download the manual and get other answers at Cisco's site.

That Westell is not wireless so the short answer is no.
However you can buy a used wireless cheap on www.craiglist.org for not too much. Wire the wire that is going into your pc into the NEW WIRELESS MODEM you get and then set that to run the first one to your PC and then you will have wireless as long as the modem you put into the mix is wireless.
XP - Vista and especially Windows 7 makes wireless a breeze.

One last note - Some internet providers do not like you to set up home wireless systems - and they sell wireless units - or 'rent' them for extra money. So -you might check with them. There is no law against setting you your own network but the ISP or what is called your provider will know and some don't like it - so if you loose connection after setting up your network - check FIRST with your ISP -- to see if they are messing with it - [ not saying they are - just saying]
Best of it

Do i need a wireless router if i have westell 6100f


Yes. The Westell 6100f is not a wireless modem, therefore, you will need to get a wireless router to connect wireless computers.

Or if your ISP is Verizon and you want a wireless modem/router, you may contact them and replace the Westell 6100f with a Westell Versalink 327w, or Westell 7500, or an Actiontec.

Hope this helps!

Westell 2200 modem


You have options definitely. You can get it through verizon, they'll ship it to you free of charge. You can also buy it at any local store near you. If you're going with the second option, just make sure you're getting either an Actiontec or Westell brand, because those are the only modem that Verizon supports, even if you buy it outside. Since you're going to upgrade your modem, I suggest getting a Westell 7500 or an Actiontec GT704, both are wireless capable already. If you use XBOX 360, I suggest getting Westell 327 or Actiontec GT701 or GT704.

How can you duble the use of a modem&is it posible?


Definitely if you are planning on hard wiring all 10 computers you need to purchase a hub..Basically you would use one of the 4 ports on your modem. Run ethernet from router to hub input and add up to 16 computers. Over 16 you need a switch. If you are going to have some wire and the others wireless, you just need to security access code from the router,that you should have from the first wireless set up.You should have a setup disk for router if you didn't complete initial setup. Or contact manufacturer to get a replacement disk. As long as all 10 computers have wireless capabilities you just have to enter the access on each individual computer to access your wireless network.

Get no connection useing 6100 modem connected to wireless B router


Hi starman re westell 6100.

Hi i hope you have find solution with your issue ifnot let me walk you through on how to get it up and working.

First , you need to connect your modem directly to your computer. We need to access its Graphic Unit Interface by opening your browser and type onyour address bar its default gateway.

The def. gateway can be 192.168.1.1 or depending what ISP youre connected to . For ATT broadband its 192.168.1.254 / verizon broadband is 192.168.1.1..  { onyour address bar : type in 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter.

to check def gateway : you can go to start > run > cmd then enter > on DOS command type in ipconfig /all  then HIT enter > itl provide you your network list > your default gateway is your westell modem or if your linksys is connected than it should be you linksys.

Itl route you to your westell page. Try to go to  Broadband and choose connection or configure connection.button. Look for configure and by default you will see its in PPPoE> change it to bridged ethernet and save.

By enabling bridge to your modem w/c is westell youl have a chance to configure you linksys to PPPoE. 

Connect you westell to your linksys and on your computer try to check your default gateway as seen above. By default linksys can be access by typing in 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. Itl prompt you for UN and PW: by default your Username is : Blank and Password should be admin. { blank = dont type anything}

On your linksys SETUP page > by default it is set to DHCP or obtain IP address automatically. Pls change it to PPPoE and type in your UN and PW : username@isp { your ISP name}. and hit save settings or save.


Restart your linksys and try to browse to check fore connection.

========================
For all types of modem such as westell : you need to set it to bridge mode first foryou wireless router to work ie linksys. Set linksys to PPPoE .. that should work .

For more detailed steps or questions re: this issue pls dont hestiate contact me. Best wishes.


Pls enable you Wireless Encryption for your home network security.

Ciao .

Westell Dsl2+ Router internet sharing


You can only use one or the other.

What you need is another router to plug the Westell one into. I have the same Westell modem and what I did was I plugged it into a wireless modem (since my Wii and Laptop use wireless) but it also has 4 LAN ports in case I need them.
