Re: 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!

Bellsout6h and att are full of ****. they list a USB driver for the westell 6100 modem. its blatant false advertising. there IS NO DRIVER! when i download and open the zip its some "security catalog" and some some notepad installation nonsese that accompanies it.
they are a bunch of liars and morons. spread the word and maybe they will get a the message.

MS-DOS reg command help 1 - Failed 2 - Successful, the result compared is different ... Deletes the registry value MTU under MyCo on ZODIAC.

Linux and UNIX route command help The default is the device MTU minus headers, or a lower MTU when path mtu ... reject, install a blocking route, which will force a route lookup to fail.

Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

there might be a problem with the Linksys router, the Westell 6100 should be 1st set to bridge mode in order for your router to be connected to it. or there could also be a proble on the Verizon server.

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 .

USB Connection

Hi floinmist .

Westell 6100 modem by default can only be used for 1 PC . It cannot orit is not enabled to use for 2or morer computers as it creates a conflict within. Ethernet connection is the BEST connection for you to use.> your USB is sent to you by you provider { ISP} or by westell packages. Its is only a spare cable just in case your PC doesnt support ethernet connection ,  nothing else. 

To resolve this issue you might want to upgrade your modem to a router w/c is westell versalink . You can connect 2 or more computers  { wired or wireless connection } and is more stable compared to your westell 6100.

Connecting 2 computers could cause slow, intermittent and NO connections at all problems.

IF you have other questions pls feel free to ask and let me know if theres anything ii can assist you with .

Best wishes.
