Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

1 Answer

Westell 6100 seems unstable

After being on line for a while my ethernet connection sometimes goes off line. Up until today all four lights have remained on, however today the ethernet lite was off. The lap top computer had sat idle for a half hour or so and I shut both the computer and modum down for a minute and restarted okay. The shutdown and restart thing has been going on as a 'solution' for several days even with all four lights still on.
Anyone else having a similar problem or solution?

    I did not mention that I am using Verizon DSL service without any router....am wired direct from the modum to the laptop.

Westell 6100 connected to a wireless router; wireless internet connection works but ethernet cable connections for desktop and PS3 will not work, even tho the desktop says its connected. This started after...


You have to make sure that in PS3 you select Automatic Configuration under Network Settings.

In Westell 6100, you have to make sure that there is "DHCP" configured on it. You have to access it via web interface and check under IP configuration or so.

Let me know if you want the detailed process for this.

Do the dsl modem have to be connected to an isp before the ethernet light comes on. i started service with att and i have a modem westell 6100 i purchased before from them and i still have the software but...


no. The ethernet light should comes on right away when you plug modem if there is something plug in. There is a but. But if your dsl light is still flashing and not staying solid it is your isp problem.

Desktop and two laptops won't work with modem & router now


Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

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.

Prince

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.
