Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6110 Modem

1 Answer

XBox 360/modem/router set up

Hello there. This is a problem that I've been having for almost a month now. I have a Westell 6100 gateway router and as you know, it only has 1 ethernet port. I have a Netgear rangemax wireless router for the sole purpose of my laptop. Here's my problem: I want to play xbox Live, and although it says I'm ''connected'' when I run the test while connected to my router, I can't play any games because I will get either ''the game has been canceled'' or something like that. When I connect the xbox cord directly into my westell router, I have no problems with gaming. What can I do to solve this problem? Should I call my isp and get a new modem/router with multiple ports so I can plug my xbox cord? Will that help? Also, I did the port forwarding stuff on my router too and it didn't help. I also found out about having my modem in bridge mode, but I figure another modem from my isp with extra ports would be easier. Unless any of you guys can give me another suggestion. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    I tried port forwarding, I called an xbox team and they have given me a list of ports to open on my router, but it didn't help. In fact, as stated on my original post, I CAN connect to Live while plugged up to my wireless router, I just can't play games with a certain friend. When I try to invite him, I get a message that the game is canceled or whatever. When the ethernet cord is plugged directly into my Westell modem, I have no problems playing any game I want on Live. I am sure all my NATS are opened with the help of Microsoft and Netgear, I just can't understand this weird problem of only being able to "play" on XBox Live with connection into my modem.

    Again, I am connected to Live with a wireless router but I can't play Live games, but if I plug my cord into my modem, I am able to play Live games that way.

    I also should point out that he has done the port forwarding too, so I honestly don't know what to do anymore.

SOURCE: Connect 2 PCs to Westell 6100 DSL modem

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.

SOURCE: westell 6100 problems

we had the same issue. Here is how we fixed it. I had the xbox 360 plugged directly into the westell 6100 modem via ethernet cable. the mtu test failed everytime. I was extremely frustrated and called microsoft and verizon (dsl) about 10 times each and they kept giving me the wrong solution. (get a new modem, get a new server, pay us money and we'll figure it out etc...) Here is what a man at microsoft told me to do and finally it worked. Power cycle your equipment (unplug modem and xbox 360 for 30 sec.) then, plug in modem first and wait until all lights are back on. Then plug in xbox and run test. In my case mtu failed again. I was then instructed to go to my dashboard and restore xbox to factory default which I did and rerun the test. This time everything FINALLY passed. We were in business. I then decided to try connecting through my airport extreme router. I power cycled again starting with the airport then the modem then the xbox and ran the test and unbelievable as it sounds it all passed and my son is now sitting happily on the couch playing a game online with his xbox 360. This took away days of my life to get this simple thing done. I was given codes to change and change back on the computer, phone calls to everyone and the solution was so simple when you finally reach a knowledgeable person. Hope this will help save someone else the time I spent!

Since the Linksys router and Westell 6100 have the same ip address which is 192.168.1.1, then they will have a conflict.

Please note: before doing the steps below, make sure you know your Verizon settings. Such as username and password.

Reset the westell 6100 (push the reset button for 30 seconds) to remove it from bridge mode. Directly connect the laptop to the Westell to access the setup page using 192.168.1.1. Set it back on how it was working before you connect the linksys router. For PPPoE, make sure Verizon username and password is correct. For DHCP, make sure that it is obtaining a WAN ip address from Verizon. Check if internet is working, if yes, then connect the Linksys router, access the setup page using a browser (http://192.168.1.1).

Under the setup page, change the LAN ip address of your Linksys to 192.168.2.1. Make sure that the WAN/Internet connection type is Obtain IP address automatically or DHCP.

Click save and it will prompt "page cannot be displayed" since the ip address changed.

Turn off the modem, router, laptop and ps3. Then turn on the westell first, wait for the DSL light to become solid, then turn on the linksys, and then the laptop and ps3.

The laptop and PS3 will now obtain the new ip address of the linksys which is 192.168.2.100 - 254.

Are one or both of you behind a router of any kind that might have a firewall feature on it blocking you from communicating with one another. It is possible that the specific port used to connect the two of you has been accidentally blocked. Try resetting security on one or both of your routers, or try connecting directly to the internet by connecting your modem to your Xbox360 directly. Doing this will show you where the problem is, if it is with the router than going directly to the modem should resolve the issue. If this does not resolve the issue than perhaps there is something wrong with your settings on the Xbox. Comment if these suggestions do not help you and we can move forward with more possible solutions.

Good Luck!

How To: USB hookup for computer while having ethernet hookup to Xbox 360.


USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.

How do you get xbox live through a phoneline straght from your computer


If were talking a common router you will have to have a broadband connection going to the box from a local provider and a good signal along with a ethernet cable that you will need to plug into the back of the router and connect to the XBOX 360 ( Note: XBOX ) does not have access to XBOX360 Live . Microsoft offers alot of Tech support on www.xbox.com

Get no connection useing 6100 modem connected to wireless B router


Hi starman re westell 6100.

Hi i hope you have find solution with your issue ifnot let me walk you through on how to get it up and working.

First , you need to connect your modem directly to your computer. We need to access its Graphic Unit Interface by opening your browser and type onyour address bar its default gateway.

The def. gateway can be 192.168.1.1 or depending what ISP youre connected to . For ATT broadband its 192.168.1.254 / verizon broadband is 192.168.1.1..  { onyour address bar : type in 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter.

to check def gateway : you can go to start > run > cmd then enter > on DOS command type in ipconfig /all  then HIT enter > itl provide you your network list > your default gateway is your westell modem or if your linksys is connected than it should be you linksys.

Itl route you to your westell page. Try to go to  Broadband and choose connection or configure connection.button. Look for configure and by default you will see its in PPPoE> change it to bridged ethernet and save.

By enabling bridge to your modem w/c is westell youl have a chance to configure you linksys to PPPoE. 

Connect you westell to your linksys and on your computer try to check your default gateway as seen above. By default linksys can be access by typing in 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. Itl prompt you for UN and PW: by default your Username is : Blank and Password should be admin. { blank = dont type anything}

On your linksys SETUP page > by default it is set to DHCP or obtain IP address automatically. Pls change it to PPPoE and type in your UN and PW : username@isp { your ISP name}. and hit save settings or save.


Restart your linksys and try to browse to check fore connection.

========================
For all types of modem such as westell : you need to set it to bridge mode first foryou wireless router to work ie linksys. Set linksys to PPPoE .. that should work .

For more detailed steps or questions re: this issue pls dont hestiate contact me. Best wishes.


Pls enable you Wireless Encryption for your home network security.

Ciao .
