Question about Westell Wirespeed ProLine 6100 Router (C9961001100)

1 Answer

Desktop and two laptops won't work with modem & router now

I have a Westell 6100f modem and a Cisco Linksys Router. Best Buy set it all up. Modem goes into router - ethernet cord from router to my
main computer - two laptops connected wirelessly. Everything worked fine until I unplugged the ethernet cord from my computer and the router the other day to replace with a new shorter E cord. Since then, I cannot get them all to work at the same time. Plugged in the way it was, both laptops work. To get my desktop on line now, I have to plug the ethernet cord straight into the modem and my desktop and then my laptops don't work. I have
verified the modem works, the router works and all cables and phone cords work. The modem and router are about 2 months old. Running Windows Xp and MacProbook. Can you please tell me what to reset or how to fix this problem?

    the cord is a cat 5e. It is the same cord I have used for 4 years. All I did was unplug it from desktop and modem and then plug it back in.

    What type (cat 5e, cat 6, straight through, crossover, STP, UTP, ???) of cable did you buy? If you switch back to the old cable, do you have the same problem?

Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

Verizon can only support from the telephone-pole across the telephone-wire to your DSL-modem; any "customer-provided-equipment" is not their problem.

LINKSYS (now CISCO) is the "market-leader" in the wireless-router business. Look at their "Wireless N" routers, and look for "extended range". It should be well under $100.

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.

Linksys router and Westell modem are not talking to each other...how to fix


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I need to know the best router/modem combo to buy


Order the Westell 7500 from Verizon. May not be the best, but your love will be easier because it eliminates a device by providing a single gateway / combo modem router.
Speed issues are ambiguos. Call Verizon and have them take you through some slow speed troublshooting.

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

Need to redo wireless setup betw linksys & westell


You will need to assign a different ip address to the Westell modem - I am assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ip address 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 to the modem.

Changing from DSL to Road Runner Turbo


I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....
