    I can tell you know what your talking about, however, my westell is connected to my DSL (verison DSL) which is connected to my Motorola Vonage Voip modem and then to my computer (running xp) I'm trying to connect my linksys WRT54G somewhere along the line to facilitate wireless capabilities throuthout my apartment. After my vonage connection should I connect the internet cable to the linksys internet socket and the linksys to my computer?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Further, the IP address of this router is 192.168.15.1. So, in the step no. 7, the IP Address would be 192.168.15.1 and you can skip changing the IP Address of the router to 192.168.2.1. Since, its already different than your modem's IP Address.

    Thanks

You will need to connect a router to the Westell in order to use more than one computer with your dsl. That modem will need to be put in bridge mode in order to allow it to work with the router.
Call ATT/Bellsouth support and tell them you need to setup your modem for bridge mode and connect your Linksys router.

Can not setup modem:Westell 6100 to router:Linksys WRT54G


i think the best way is to describe to you the physical setup first. so you have a computer, a modem, and a router. the setup should be like this: from the walljack, the phonecable is connected to the 6100, make sure there are no micro filters connected between the walljack and the phone line because it will not allow you to connect to the dsl. from the modem, the data/internet cable at the back of it, using an ethernet cable, should be connected to the router. and at the back of the router E1 to E4, another ethernet cable is connected there and the other end of the cable is to be connected to your computer. you are right in bridging the modem, the reason for that is because both the westell 6100 and router have GUI's or Graphical User Interfaces, in short, they each have their own virtual brain. you will not have a connection if both of them have this GUI thing, so you need to bridge your westell 6100, so that the only GUI active is the routers. to bridge the modem you may need assistance from tech support of your ISP provider. assuming that's done, light status in your 6100 should have a solid DSL light. for the router, it should have lights in WAN, WLAN if you want to connect wirelessly and E1 to E4, whichever ethernet port you're using for a wired connection. you have to access the GUI of the router to make sure you have a routable WAN IP Address. As for the IP address in your computer, it should be a 192.168.x.xxx type of ip address. this is the LAN IP Address. Basically you need to have routable WAN and LAN IP Addresses to be able to connect online. you will need to configure the GUI of your router to be able to do this. for that you may need assistance from tech support of the router or if you can follow the instructions in the manual, by all means do so. the most important thing in this setup is bridging the modem.

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.

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.
