    Are you trying to use BOTH the USB and NETWORK ports at the same time?



    Disconnect the USB port, connect the NETWORK cable,

    and power-off the DSL-modem. Turn it on again,

    and see if the NETWORK connection is now working.

I have yet to see a single DSL modem that will allow USB and Ethernet connections simultaneously (and actually work properly). You should install a DSL router instead.

directly connect the dsl modem to your pc and then restart your system. once your up and running the pc should automatically create a connection with the modem device. once you have established an internet connewction this way, shut down the system and reboot. after complete bootup, unplug the power supply cords to both the modem and the router. now plug im the modem, wait 1 minute and plug in the router. after about a minute you should now be able to connect to the internet both by your pc and wireless connections.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from the computer's LAN PC card and connect it a DSL or cable modem. Contact a Internet Service Provider and select a plan that suits your requirements. The Internet Service Provider may also supply this broadband modem with the plan.

My computer wont recognize the 2 wire modem


may be you are using the wrong RJ from the modem to pc. Check with RJ45.. Else if you are using wireless modem.
I suggest you switch off pc
Remove USB cable to modem
Start computer
Uninstall all drivers for the modem and software. Delete network settings.
Install software without inserting USB cable untill it asks you to insert
I guess you can follow from there and get details from ISP how to log on and password
Hope all goes well

What is the difference between connecting a computer to a DSL modem via Ethernet and connecting a computer to a DSL modem via USB?


They are just two different methods of connecting a router. I always choose using an Ethernet over USB if I have the option. USB connections are more prone to problems with drivers.

If the modem connect to a coaxial cable its cable, if connect to a RJ11 aka Telephone cable is DSL. Most of the modems connect the computers via RJ45 aka Cat5 or network cable. For this type of connection you do not need drivers.

If the computer not connect to internet, check for the NIC card driver in COntrol Panel. If the drivers are good, then open the command prompt (go to START | Run.. | Type cmd and press ENTER) and type ping 127.0.0.1, if you not have a success the network card is bad. If successfull...

Type ipconfig, if you have return IP of 169.254.x.x then your computer is not getting an IP. reset the router and check again.

When type ipconfig you have to display one of these IP address . 1) 192.168.x.x 2) 172.16.x.x 3)10.0.x.x. If you cant connect check for third party software installed.

Resuming verizon dsl usb internet connection


If you reformatted your Windows on your pc, there's no need to change the settings of your network connections. The Westell 6100 can either be connected to your pc using the Ethernet port or the USB port if you're using the combo cable or Y-cable. It's more stable to use the Ethernet port for your Lan connection. For the USB, to reinstall the USB connection properly, you'll need the Verizon Installation CD. Make sure the USB is not connected to your PC first before you install it. You just need to follow the CD because it will tell you when to hook up the USB cable to the pc. If you still have the CD, after it runs, you have to select existing customer and then select connect new modem. After that you just to have follow the steps to install the USB connection properly and then your modem will work fine afterwards. If the problem still persists, you can try replacing the cable. If all else fails, it could be a modem problem already. You also need to check your Network Interface Card of NIC as we call it, it's built in your pc. it's the device that allows your pc to communicate with the modem. Normally after reinstalling windows, the NIC is forgotten, make sure you also install the drivers and utilities Cd for your windows.

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.

I have a netgear wireless router which I need to configure. Part of the process requires me to connect the router to the modem. However the modem uses a USB connection. How do I connect it to the router?


I would check you have the right router, as DSL and cable use different types routers, if you are on a DSL connection my advice would be to return the router and purchase a modem/router and do away with your modem, if you are on cable modem, you have bought a DSL modem as they have no connection for a modem.

The DSL router/modem will receive an address from your ISP (Qwest) and will assign an address to the connected PC.

There should be a cable that goes from your DSL modem to your PC. It'll either be a USB cable (flat rectangular plug on the PC end), or a RJ45 (looks like a wider telephone plug).

If there is neither connection between the DSL modem and your PC, then the PC can't "talk" to the DSL modem, so it's not getting an address from the DSL modem.
