How to configure Westell VersaLink 327W to work with ATT internet

I bought a Westell VersaLink 327W router thru the internet but I didn't know it was a Verizon product. I have ATT DSL internet service. I accidentally broke the antena to my existing ATT VersaLink 327W router. Can the Verizon router be configured to work with ATT service? If yes, how do I configure it - step by step. Thanks.

    The router doesn't come with setup cd or any other documents. I did connect it and the router works but I cannot connect to the internet. I contacted ATT & for $99 they will configure it. I don't want to pay that amount, so I'm trying to do it myself. Thanks.

I bought one of these wireless routers a while back and found that these can work well with At&t simply by logging into the router (192.168.1.1), creating an account with your At&t user ID and password, and enabling PPPoE with the VCI set to 8 and the VPI set to 35. Worked well for me for about two years now. Hope this helps

Just connect the cables, and "test" it -- either it works, or it does not.

If you still need help, telephone your Internet Service Provider (AT&T), and ask them for assistance, on a "best efforts" basis.

Westell versalink 327w from bellsouth can't connect


Howdy,

I do not think this modem will work for you. Contact O.T.C. to be sure. For a few details...

I presume that you can access your Westell wireless modem/router 327w with the IP address of - 192.168.1.254. (Or you can simply type "launchmodem" in the address bar - (one word - no quotes)) This will definitely get you in. You will then see the setup menu. If you see the Bellsouth FastAccess Internet Service logo then you know you definitely have a Bellsouth modem.

Now, let's presume, you are using a Westell wireless modem/router 327w made for Bellsouth/ATT. If this is the case, as stated above, you will see the Bellsouth Logo on the setup page. Additionally, it is stated on the page below, that you cannot use a Bellsouth modem/router for any other ISP (Internet Service Provider) This is due to the Bellsouth/ATT firmware that Westell builds into this modem/router.

This is the page link:
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/bellsouth/3.141_Westell_327W__wireless__Info#13772

This is the relevant quote:
"The BellSouth supplied 327W (model C90-327W30-06) is made exclusively for BellSouth FastAccess. They are functionally different from retail Westells (or any model designed for use with other ISPs) and the firmware between them are not compatible and can not be interchanged."

That being said, you still might attempt to use this 327W with orlando telephone company but I do not know if it will work. (Doubtful...) I use the Bellsouth 327W and it is GREAT. (With Bsouth/ATT) Good luck.

P.S. - Please be advised that Westell does manufacture an identical 327W that does NOT have the Bellsouth/ATT firmware.installed. This is the "generic" version I suppose but I have no experience with this one. If you need more just ask. :)

Good luck,

J

Set to work with centurytel instead of bell south


Howdy - You may have a two fold problem here. First of all the Westell wireless modem/router 327w has the access IP address of - 192.168.1.254. (Or you can simply type "launchmodem" in the address bar - (one word - no quotes)) This will definitely get you in. You will then see the setup menu. That problem solved...

Now, from what I understand, you are using a Westell wireless modem/router 327w made for Bellsouth/ATT. If this is the case, you will see the Bellsouth Logo on the setup page. Additionally, it is stated on the page below, that you cannot use a Bellsouth modem/router for any other ISP (Internet Service Provider) This is due to the Bellsouth/ATT firmware that Westell builds into this modem/router.

This is the page link:

I configured my verizon westell 327W to connect to the internet using an ATT FastAccess DSL connection but when the IE window comes up - i get the verizon activation startup page - how do i get around...


You most likely have to call and setup you mac address with your ISP. There is really no way around this is your ISP requires your MAC address. This is located on your modem. Give them a call and tell them the MAC Address of the Moden and you should be good to go.

My brother just gave me a Westell versa-link model 327w router. there isn't any instruction/opeartor's manual with it. is there a web site with instructions on how to go about hooking this up? Thanx Wayne


The 327w router is distributed by Verizon, an internet service provider. On their website you find tons of info on this model.

Go to the Verizon support page and enter

<westell versalink 327w> in the search field.

Furthermore here some interesting info for you:
