Can't connect to friends network


They are four reasons why your wireless would say "acquiring network address" and later changing into "Limited or no connectivity"

1) Invalid WEP/WPA Encryption key.
2) Mac Filtering, Your friends might have disallowed the mac address of your laptop or he it might be filtered.
3) Short IP range mentioned on the router (May your friend has specified a short ip address range for DHCP)
4) Invalid configuration for wireless on Windows Vista

To this problem, do this on your laptop

1) Start >> Control Panel >> Network and Sharing Center (Classic View) >> Manage Wireless network>> remove the wireless network by clicking and then right clicking on top of it and remove.
2) Now try to connect again to the wireless network, reenter the key and that should do it.

If this doesn't work, then probably you have to ask your friend about the 2 and 3 possible cause listed above.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

Cannot connect MacBook to DIR-615 router

Is your wireless network secured ?
If you are trying to connect to the secured wireless network, make sure that the network that you are typing is correct.
If you are not sure about the network key
then check the network key on the router.
You said that MAC is able to connect to the neighbor's wireless network.
Make sure that the Wireless MAC filter on your router is disabled.

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.

Macbook latop

There is a user name and password stored in the Westell router, when you connect to the Internet it sends this info to the ISP to allow your connection. Hopefully your ISP provided you with this info. If you have it, type in in your browser, this will take you to the Westell Home Page (Your Router). There will be a Connection Overview window open, select profile editor, this will open another window, click on edit profile. This will open another screen where you can input your Account Name (username) and Account Password. Enter them, select the Always On button and save. If the reset button has been pressed on the back of the router, this will remove the name and password and restore everything back to the factory defaults including disabling the wireless operation. Usually when you are being asked for the password, it has been erased from the router. Hope this helps.

Macbook pro network connection

Verizon, the ones who sent me the router, helped me fix the problem. The router/modem software has to be updated because the old software can't work with the new version of leopard. The technical support guy did all of the updating via a screen share, so your best bet is to call the company who sent you the router and get their help.

Connecting to a macbook


This is all what you just need to do. You need to get you mac address first and edit it using a computer that is currently connect to your router as you are using Mac filtering. To check your mac address :

To find the serial number located on the computer If the MacBook is not turned on, you can open the computer's battery bay to find the serial number.
The MacBook serial number and Ethernet ID (also called a MAC address) are located on the bottom of the computer, underneath the battery, in the battery bay.

Remote access through a Westell Wirespeed Versalink model B90-327W15-06


You need to setup a feature called "Port Forwarding." Do you know what program you will use to access your desktop remotely? I recommend windows windows remote desktop or VNC programs.

The link below is a complete walkthrough on how to enable port forwarding for windows remote desktop from a westell 327.

There is an alternative option called a DMZ which you could use. Let me know if you need further assistance.
