Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem
Verizon's DSL modem, Westell 6100, has only one ethernet jack. I'd like to connect two Windows XP computers to the modem. Do I need a hub, a router, or something else?
Yea, isn't that annoying! Took me like 15 - 20 min to figure out you just leave it blank and click ok or apply whatever it is and you're golden. I'll post seperate here for a full set of bridging instructions.

Well depends on if you want to hookup wirelessly with one or not. If the modem has a USB connection as well as ethernet, then you can hook up 1 computer to usb and 1 to ethernet with no problems. If you do want a wireless hookup then yes, you need a wireless router. I would just go with a router because of the convenience of being able to go wireless if you decide to. I would suggest a Linksys WRT-54GL with a 3rd party firmware (DD,-WRT, Tomato, etc.) Hope this helps.

To connect two pcs for internet use you need a USB (bridged) cable for your modem. A regular USB will burn out your ports.

The Westell 6100 DSL modem already is in actuality a modem/router and as such can be connected and configured to work by attaching via hardware network switch such as the brand name Linksys EZXS55W available at: http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-EZXS55W-EtherFast-5-Port-Workgroup/dp/B00003006E/ref=pd_sim_e_1
This solves and avoids the networking configuration dilema and problem of putting the Westell 6100 in bridge mode and all the anxiety that arises from that exercise and experiment in networking.

So I have a westell modem, but how do I make it bridge so i can use my linksys router to it... I tried connecting to westell odem and it just wolt let me in, everytime I access it the log in window apears asking for username and password....admin, password... I am directed to a Verizon window that is is asking me to change user name and password and it doesnt go anywhere else after that, it keeps asking me to change un/password...no matter what I do it does the same.
