    By the way the model number should start with E90 or F90 and is located on the bottom of the modem.

    What is your operating system (XP, Vista, 98). And can you give me the model number of the modem.

Yes, you will need to reinstall the USB drivers of the westell modem.

The drivers are on the CD that came with the modem.

Check the device manager if the computer is still detecting the modem. If yes, then just reinstall the modem.

If no, unplug and replug the modem from the usb port of the computer and a found new hardware wizard should appear.

Hope this helps!

I just reintalled windows XP, how can I re-connect to my modem?


You either need to power cycle your modem, Or reinstall the drivers if you are connecting through USB. If you are talking about your actual dial up modem in the computer or NIC card then you will need to get the drivers for those from the manufacturer of your computers website.

Blinking light on Westell 6100 DSL modem


Blinking light means that firmware on your DSL modem just got updated. The modem is pinging the Networ/Computer connected to it. If you open your Modem Page 192.168.1.1 you will see the difference, unless you never have done it before.

Run Installation Wizard..


Yes. This means to say that you need to install all software that came with the modem, contained in a disc before connecting (installing) USB cable or anything else. After installation of the software and computer is restarted you can now then connect all peripherals for modem connection.

Connecting modem via ethernet cable


I'm not an expert in window based units but since it worked with Vista OS and not with XP. Sounds like you might try re-installing XP again. Take note on any windows that refer to the ethernet port during installation. It is likely you might of hit "next" without reading all the text. I know I have in the past. I changed over to mac and I know longer have any problems only at work but give then I give it to the IT Dept and wait and wait and wait.

Connecting another computer


HI,

Im not sure what model of westell you are using but if you say that it has a USB port then it must be a westell 6100. With this type of modem { 3 ports } w/c are USB port , ethernet port and a phone port. Connecting another computer is technically a no-no for that device. It will create a conflict and the other computer wont work at all vice-versa. Youd experience slow connection too.

I would recommend you to just use 1 PC for this device OR you would consider on purchasing a router for that.A router is a separate device where-in you can connect multiple computers. modem --> router ----> computers { wired and wireless}. Routers are more secured and is very efficient when it comes to home networks.

Hope that helps and if you may have additional questions pls feel free to post it in FIxya.

Good Luck .

USB Connection


Hi floinmist .

Westell 6100 modem by default can only be used for 1 PC . It cannot orit is not enabled to use for 2or morer computers as it creates a conflict within. Ethernet connection is the BEST connection for you to use.> your USB is sent to you by you provider { ISP} or by westell packages. Its is only a spare cable just in case your PC doesnt support ethernet connection ,  nothing else. 

To resolve this issue you might want to upgrade your modem to a router w/c is westell versalink . You can connect 2 or more computers  { wired or wireless connection } and is more stable compared to your westell 6100.

Connecting 2 computers could cause slow, intermittent and NO connections at all problems.

IF you have other questions pls feel free to ask and let me know if theres anything ii can assist you with .

Best wishes.

Prince

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.
