Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

1 Answer

I can't get on line

I cant connect. Verizon says there is no problem with the dsl line. My Westell 6100 modum is on and the dsl light is blinking constantly. Someone told me to double check my IP address? I'm not sure how to do that or if it is what I should do...any suggestions? I have a HP pavillion (only 4 months old) so I don't think it's the computer.

Re: I can't get on line

A blinking DSL light means that you have no DSL sync -- you are not receiving a digital signal. You will need to contact your ISP to have them repair your service.

Steps to do first:
1. Powercycle the modem -- unplug the power from the back for 15 secs, plug it back up.
2. Ensure that all phones that share a line with the DSL have filters attached.

Keeps losing the internet and it just got so slow

Have a look at this link:
Usually slow or dropped connections occur when the modem is having difficulty communicating with the DSLAM in the exchange. This is usually due to line 'noise'. If your line has external noises they will interfere with the data and cause corruption therefore dropping the line or slowing valid data transmission. Check that all devices connected to your phone line have filters, phones, faxes, back to base alarms etc.

Green blinking internet light on verizon westell 6100 modem.

Yes. When you power down the modem you are suppose to power down the pc. That is what the machine tell you before you get a tech person. It could be that your cache is getting full causing slow speeds.

Blinking light on Westell 6100 DSL modem

Blinking light means that firmware on your DSL modem just got updated. The modem is pinging the Networ/Computer connected to it. If you open your Modem Page you will see the difference, unless you never have done it before.

DSL Modem

That means that the phone is interfeering with the broadband. Often you fix this kind of problems by replacing the broadband filter. If it does not work after replacement it means there is a problem either with phone line or with broaband provider.
In this case contact first ISP (broaband provider), then your phone company to locate the problem.
Most likely it is the filter.

My ethernet light is blinking

Make sure you have internet. The ethernet light is blinking because what ever u have plugged into it is talking to the modem. The modem will then take that request and ask for it on the DSL/internet line. Make sure the DSL light is steady on and the internet light is on or flashing with activity.
