Question about Westell Wirespeed VersaLink (A99-327W11-00) Router (A99327W1100)

Changing from DSL to Road Runner Turbo

We just switched from Bellsouth DSL to Roadrunner Turbo. Bright house Networks provided a new modem. Now, we can only get on the internet with the main computer. We have 2 desktop computers, 2 laptops, and an XBOX that were on a wireless system with a Westell Versalink Model 327W Router. Is there a way to bypass the Westell modem and only use it as a router? If so, how do I hook it up? OR....Can you just tell me what I need to do to get everyone back online and happy again? After weeks of listening to kids complain about how slow DSL was, I upgraded to Roadrunner. Now, no one is happy because they can't get online at all. HELP!!!!! : )

I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....

1- in order of what connects to what
1- linksys connects to road runner modem. Should be a network connection on the back of the router that says uplink. This connects to the road runner`s wired port on the back of the unit.
Vonage phone will/should connect through the wireless section an in your personal wifi connection when you get the router wireless setup. Name your wireless something that other people are not using and then tell vonage phone to connect to that network.
Hope this helps

Ok.....my internet is up and running......and im useing the SB5101 Model...but when i switch it back to my SBG900....it gets stuck on the roadrunner (internet provider) web page.....it works fine with the...


Turn the cable-modem off.
Unplug the AC poewr to the cable-modem.
Turn the router off.
Unplug the AC power.
Reconnect the AC power to both the cable-modem and the router.
Turn the router on -- this off/on sequence should "reset" the cable-modem and the router.

If the router still does not work, replace it.

If the cable-modem does not work, get RoadRunner to replace it, if they want to keep you as a paying customer.

Hi, My sister is switching dsl providers but doesn't want to purchase a new modem. She owns a Thomson ST516v6 but it is apparently locked to her old provider. How do I unlock the modem for her so that...


This isn't possible as the firmware is pushed down from the provider themselves. It sounds as if your sister was leasing this unit and never returned it to the original provider, if she bought this unit then I would demand that whatever provider she previously had replace it.You can find a new DSL modem from an electronics store and then she will never have to switch again and she can avoid that modem leasing fee.

We just got a road runner cable motem, and I had a linksys router before we got the road runner. I have a dsixl, and it's not connecting to the linksys anymore. please help.


Unplug the roadrunner cable modem completely as well as the Linksys. Let them sit for 20 minuets or so and then plug in the roadrunner modem first. Let it power up completely and then connect the linksys via the internet or wan port.

Check for connectivity.

If no internet connection enter the linksys control web page usually at 192.168.1.1 and perform a ip address release/renew on the status page.

If you do not know your admin login for linksys the default is admin with a password of admin. If you are unable to access the router then perform a factory reset on the router.

Make sure the router is powered ON. Then Press+Hold the Reset button of your router for 30secs first. (Reset is found on the back panel of your router, you have to use a pen or a paper clip to press the button) For the LED's if the power blinking that indicates that the router is being reset and then power-cycle the router for only 30secs.

If the Power LED won't blink Press+Hold the Reset Button for 1min and then Power-cycle the router for another 1min. Then check the IP address of your PC then try accessing your router's GUI admin console using a web browser with the address of 192.168.1.1 and use admin as your password.

Westell versalink 327w from bellsouth can't connect


Howdy,

I do not think this modem will work for you. Contact O.T.C. to be sure. For a few details...

I presume that you can access your Westell wireless modem/router 327w with the IP address of - 192.168.1.254. (Or you can simply type "launchmodem" in the address bar - (one word - no quotes)) This will definitely get you in. You will then see the setup menu. If you see the Bellsouth FastAccess Internet Service logo then you know you definitely have a Bellsouth modem.

Now, let's presume, you are using a Westell wireless modem/router 327w made for Bellsouth/ATT. If this is the case, as stated above, you will see the Bellsouth Logo on the setup page. Additionally, it is stated on the page below, that you cannot use a Bellsouth modem/router for any other ISP (Internet Service Provider) This is due to the Bellsouth/ATT firmware that Westell builds into this modem/router.

This is the page link:
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/bellsouth/3.141_Westell_327W__wireless__Info#13772

This is the relevant quote:
"The BellSouth supplied 327W (model C90-327W30-06) is made exclusively for BellSouth FastAccess. They are functionally different from retail Westells (or any model designed for use with other ISPs) and the firmware between them are not compatible and can not be interchanged."

That being said, you still might attempt to use this 327W with orlando telephone company but I do not know if it will work. (Doubtful...) I use the Bellsouth 327W and it is GREAT. (With Bsouth/ATT) Good luck.

P.S. - Please be advised that Westell does manufacture an identical 327W that does NOT have the Bellsouth/ATT firmware.installed. This is the "generic" version I suppose but I have no experience with this one. If you need more just ask. :)

Good luck,

J

Setup router with vonage device and dsl modem


For the best call quality, I suggest you connect the Vonage router to the DSL modem, and if necessary, connect the Linksys router behind that. Why are you using a second router, though - you probably just need a switch or hub, if you're trying to connect more machines. Small networks rarely require more than one router. MaverickSolutions.biz may be able to provide additional support if you can give us more details about your installation.

X-Router Pro (MIH-130) difficulties


If from going to Bellsouth to Charter you went from DSL to Cable, you may need to change the MTU on the router to match what is set on your modem (it's often different for DSL than for other networks)

Wag354g


From the pieces I am gathering I cannot see how to replace the supplied modem/whatever from BellSouth with the modem in the WAG354G (I see no identification of the required configuration options) however we may be able to use only the lan side of the device as an access point connected to the modem device supplied with the DSL service from BellSouth. In order to do this you will need to provide the manufacturer (Alcatel, Netopia and Westell are three possible manufacturers) and model number of the device provided by BellSouth -- it appears they have 4 or more. I may be able to determine some options based on what you provide. I believe the Vista compatibility issue for the router is not related to usability but some special configuration software that can be bypassed using the following web-based approach.

The preceding should get us access to the wireless configuration if needed as follows
