Intermittent Internet conncection

I have a Netgear WGR614 v6 and the Westell 6100 modem/router on Bellsouth DSL xtreme6.0. I have a wired ethernet to a Vista desktop, and wireless to a Win XP desktop. I have problems on the Vista PC where intermittentanly IE has stopped working or lost connection. I have to close and re-open IE7. Now on the Wireless PC, I also loose my internet. If I go into the Netgear router itself and cahnge the wireless channel, I resume connection on the wireless PC. Is it, the Modem, the Router, or VISTA?

I have another computer i want to install in the up stairs.do i need another dsl router to connect to it????.


If you have a Westell 6100, it's just a modem meant to connect a single computer to the Internet. It has the jack where you plug in the cord to your DSL phone line, and an Ethernet jack so you can plug in your computer. You can't have more than one of these connected to the phone line because of address conflicts that would result.

What you need is a wireless router so your Internet connection can be shared by several computers. Most service providers are installing Westell models that combine the modem and a 4-port wired/wireless router for new customers now. Since you have the modem only, you'll need to supply the router. The wireless function lets you use the upstairs computer without having to run a network cable to connect it. That's much cleaner and simpler. There will be four connectors on the back of the router for wired computers or other things (such as a network printer) you might want to connect. You still have only one connection to your DSL line, but now you can hook up several computers at once.

There are several companies making wireless routers and they all do pretty much the same thing. Netgear, Linksys and D-Link are the most common, and you can buy a wireless router at almost any retailer that sells computers. You can also find them online from companies like TigerDirect or Newegg. Other than staying with one of the major brands (it's easier to find support for those if you need it), there's not much to recommend one kind over another.

It's pretty easy to install a wireless router and set up your wireless network. They all come with a CD containing setup software that will guide you through the process. You'll have that upstairs machine on line in no time.

Try a different ethernet cable. It could be that your cable is bad. I had that happen to me before. My was from the modem to the router. If it was working at the store and not at home, then it is cable. It is should bea cheap fix.

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.
