Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

1 Answer

Replacing older model Westell ADSL modem with newer one.

Hi! Recently picked up a E90-610015-06 Westell modem off Ebay to replace my faultering C90-610015-06 unit that I have connected to Verizon service. After I plug it in what procedure do I undertake to enable it to connect to the internet (just plugging it in does not allow connection)? The original installation from Verizon involved inserting a CD-ROM to download drivers and set up account. Do I need to go through that whole process again to enable the new unit or can this be achieved by entering the setup mode at the Westell site (192.168.1.1)? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Plug your old modem back in and access it via the browser. Either dslrouter or 192.168.1.1 in the url seacrh bar. Go to configure and write down all the ISP setting and LABEL what sections in the configure they go to for your ISP. Still with me?
The plug in your "new" modem access it the same way and enter the ISP and modem settings from the old modem; it should work.

Can I set this up this wireless router if I have cable internet and not DSL?


You CAN do this if you have access to the firmware of the ADSL gateway.

Connect cat5 cable from ethernet port on cable modem to ethernet port 1 on ADSL Gateway. (Must be port 1)
-Connect cat5 cable from computer NIC to other port on ADSL Gateway.
-(You may need to) Start->Run->cmd
ipconfig -release all
ipconfig -renew
Here's the trick...
-Open web browser, go to ADSL Gateway homepage (likely 192.168.0.1)
-Configuration tab, Advanced WAN->WAN
-Change WAN PORT drop down from DSL ATM PORT to ETHERNET PORT 1
-Click Edit button. Change Protocol from PPPoE to ROUTED.
-Radio button for DHCP Client to Enable.
-Click Set button.
-(You may need to) Power cycle both Cable Modem and ADSL Gateway device

Now this was done on a Westell ADSL gateway from verizon, yours may differ and you may need to look up the instructions for your specific gateway.

Hi there i have just changed from ADSL cable in put to ADSL2 wi-fi but my wi-fi needs updating is this correct ? if so how do i do this


Just changing or replacing the ADSL Cable ie if it is the Network cable (RJ45) will not affect the configurations of the router in your WIFI modem. Update is not necessary.

Replacing your WIFI modem set, you have to reconfigure the wireless modem router settings to get acess to your internet.

Read the setup instructions manuals if you are replacing your WIFI set.

Hope it helps.

Upgraded dsl modem to westell G-90-610015-20 and my linksys WRT54G router cant get an IP address. I just upgraded the modem from and older westell model, didn't change any of the settings and it can't get...


if you connect the computer directly to the modem, without any router , does it work?
Make sure that your computer will be online when connected to the modem.
If you are not online through the modem, then you should have the correct user name and password for the ISP.

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

I have switched to a Westell VersaLink 327W from a older Westell Wirespeed. The Wirespeed communicated via USB and the new Westell communicates via Ethernet. How do I get the computer to see the modem?


If you are using a Westell DSL modem with ethernet connection, then you connect the modem's ethernet port to the computer's network card. This also uses an ethernet cable. Good Luck
