My Westell USB cable won't connect to my Netgear router!

Any solutions? The Westell cable has a unique plug end which doesn't fit to the Netgear router. Any ideas?

    I have an idea, but you're not going to like it. A typical Westell cable modem has TWO jacks on it, one being a USB and the other being an ethernet. Try the ethernet port.

If you are connecting the Westell to the Netgear router, you need an ethernet connection(a different cable---AN ETHERNET CABLE)

All lights on router lit up except usb do have internet connection should i be concerned that this one light is not on


No... assuming you are using an ethernet connection. The USB light is only for when you are connecting via a USB cable.

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 followed the CD instructions for connecting the router to my modem, and I am unable to get a connection. I took the thick yellow ethernet cable and connected one end to my PC, and the other end to the...


Contact your Internet Service Provider (DSL or cable) and let them know you're hooking up a router to your modem. They may have disabled the router feature in the modem and will need to identify it on their system for it to work correctly - they should walk you through the process (it's free). The thinner yellow cable you mentioned - is it a USB cable? Sorry, I've never heard of such a cable unless it's USB, Ethernet (the thick cable), or a phone line cable - the cables used for a network.

Westell 6100g has one dataport, but I want to link to my Netgear WPN824 wireless router. XP machine.


Connect the NetGear WAN/ Internet port to the WAN/Internet port of the Westell cable modem, then connect your PC to any of the ports on the router
Then:

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe




If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

I need help connecting a westell 7500 router/modem,i want to get a notebook on line. i didnt receive any intsructions.i need help connecting the westell 7500 to my pc and notebook thanking you.


Westell makes a line of broadband home networking products that enable residential customers and users in small businesses to access and share broadband services. These inexpensive DSL router/modems offer multi-users Internet LAN access for home or business applications. The Westell router/modems allow you to have the benefits of the "always on" high-speed broadband Internet connection without losing the ability to receive voice calls over the same phone line.
  1. Step 1 288254_thumb.jpg Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the computer's Ethernet port. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Westell router.
  2. Step 2 Connect the barrel end of the router's power cord to the connector labeled "12 v" on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the power cord into a wall outlet.
  3. Step 3 Connect one end of the DSL phone cable to the DSL line jack on the back of the router. Connect the other end to the wall jack.
  4. Step 4 Wait for the Ready and the Link LEDs to glow steady green. The router is now ready to use.

How do you connect a netgear router from dsl to cable


The DSL modem will have a LAN port (RJ45), plug a LAN cable in this port and connect the other end to the Netgear router's WAN port.

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
