Westell Versalink 327w -- can't change channel

The westell327w seems to be OK,however the wirless signal is weak. I thought I would try changing the channel to see if it improves my signal. I finally got into the router settings, but when I change the channel to 1, it defaults back to 6. Channel 6 seems to be a popular channel in my neighborhood, so i think it would be good to switch to a different channel. Why won't it allow me to change it?

Do I have to change the channel setting through the Verizon website and if so how do I do that?

I followed advice that I read on online about how I needed to get into the router settings, but they failed to explain that the default log in and password were "admin" and "password." I finally found it on another troubleshooting site. I got in, but it would not except any changes. I finally gave up.

A couple of ways later, I tried again and when I accessed the router settings it prompted me to change the default log in and password. After that, I was able to make any changes I wanted. Viola' !!!

My westell versalink 327W router works when my computer is connected to it but it is not sending out a wireless signal


Try the following:

Check if wireless is enabled on the router.

Check if the wireless switch (if any) on the computer is on.

Check if the SSID broadcast is enabled.

Try a different wireless channel (6 or 11).

Hope this helps!

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:

Westell 327w channels


Type in http://192.168.1.1 in your browser window, this will take you to the Westell Home Page (your router). There are tabs at the top, select Configuration>Wireless>Basic, this will open a Wireless Operation Window. You will see Channel in the 3rd box down. Click on the arrow to change the channel, then click save at the bottom. Close all windows and X out of the browser.

No wireless signal


Access the firmware page by going to your web browser and ener the following the address bar:

http://192.168.1.1 (assuming your provider hasn't changed this)
Mouse to "Configuration"
Click on "Wireless"
Select "Basic"
You will see the "Wireless Operation" field. Select "Enable" here.

I actually support this modem on a daily basis. If you have any more issues let me know and I will send you a link to a document with these instructions and screenshots.

Poor wirless signal


Hi HHC,

You can try resetting the Westell to defaults, but pressing a thin pin, (Paperclip works great!) into the reset hole, in the back, and holding it in for 10 sec. You could also try using the lowest channel you. Most Westell's I have worked with have good wireless range, though. Test your laptop at a nearby hotspot, i.e. Starbucks. McDonalds, etc. If it is not the laptop, (Averatec laptops have horrible range!) and the reset don't fix it, have it replaced.

Good Luck!
