    Hi Wsuh,



    what kind of security are you using? WPA-PSK TKIP, WPA2-AES? Try changing it to WPA-PSK (TKIP) on your Router and your Macbook. Tell me the result please.



    Regards,

Can i hook my westell 327w to a linksys befsr41


Absolutely, it is as simple as plugging in the westell to the befsr41. However all that will do is split the cable so it can accomodate multiple devices. BUT, the befsr41 is a wired router, to go wifi pick up a wireless router. This wireless router replaces the befsr41. I like the linksys (Cisco) 1000 or the 2000. If they have the Wrt54g thats best. Good luck! Dont worry it is pretty simple.

I have charter internet with a modem and i have a westell 327w wireless router/modem. How can i connect the two modems to work wirelessly?


I think the Westell Router/modem that you have must be the modem for the DSL connection.
Charter is a cable internet service provider.
You can not use 2 modems connected to each other.
You have a charter modem , you can purchase a wireless router only.
That will work.

Adding laptop to existing Westell 327W Router


that's probably because the MAC address of your old pc is bound by the router. when you the new laptop can't recognize your router i'm assuming you can't go online? if this is the case, you need to call verizon tech support and have them clear the dhcp of your router so that it can communicate with your new laptop and you may be able to go online, sometimes the network gets used to an old pc, it automatically finds the MAC address of the old one, if they can't, they won't let you connect.

however, if by recoginze you mean your laptop can't locate your router's signal wirelessly, that's because you have to enable Wireless Zero Configuration first in windows. you can activate that by going to services. if you have an XP, that's clicking on start, clicking on RUN, and the typing in services.msc and then click ok, look for Wireless Zero Configuration and activate the service. If you have vista, click on search, type in services, click on services that it will show you and look for Wireless Zero Configuration and activate the service. after this you will the be able to see your wireless connection when you view available networks. I hope it's either the first or this one. Hope this helps.

SMC Barricade g SMCWBR14-N Wireless Router... router Configure with Westell 327W


it seems that the router capability of both devices are conflicting with each other so below are the steps that you can try to setup the two devices to work with each other.

i assume that you are using pppoe connection from at&t and you are using a connection manager. if so, with the current setup that you have right, you need to disable the connection manager on your computer (network connection, disable at&t connection) and set the connection of your web browser to "never dial a connection". check now if you will be able to connect to the internet instead of being prompted for a password. if your problem is still the same, try the steps below.

configure the westell 327w the way it was before (when it works properly when hard wired to the computers but the wireless sucks) but disable the wireless capability. change now the ip address of the smc router from it's default (192.168.2.1) to an ip address which is on the same segment as the ip address of the westell 327w (ex. 192.168.1.2 if your westell 327w is using the ip address 192.168.1.1). disable the dhcp of the smc router (note:make sure that you have configured all the settings that you want to configure with the smc (i.e. wireless settings, port forwarding, etc). then connect the westell to one of the LAN ports of the smc (note: with this setup, the wan port of the smc should not be used) and power cycle everything and check if this setup will work.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern.

ciao!

Westell versalink 327w i need default password


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.

Hook up westell 327w to linksys router


the wireless won't work. i have the same problem. westell modems aren't compatible with wireless function on some laptops therefore routing signal through a wireless router allows that. it can be done, i've done it but after modem was reset having issues. keep searching it can be done...

thanks for the vague and non-informative answer though whoever that was.
