Call your ISP and demand a DSL tech visit. It sounds like either you do not have the correct password in your gateway to allow for access OR you have your computers wireless connection trned off. On my dell, i use Intel pro wireless set to connect. Your ISP's csr support should be able to get this up and running for you.

I have a westell 327w and have a laptop that I use wirelessly. It worked in the kitchen now it doesnt. When I bring the laptop near the router then the laptop "finds" the connection. What gives. Is the...

Did you introduce new equipment recently--microwaves etc? These could degrade the signals...some paints could degrade signal so if you have painted the kitchen recently this could be part of the problem.

On the other hand it could be your laptop's wifi adapter. I recommend powering off the computer and repowering; reinstalling the driver.

My guess is that dhcp is using the same private network scheme. Try changing your home network scheme to something different than your office.
For example:
Office = 192.168.1.x
home = 192.168.2.x

Remote access through a Westell Wirespeed Versalink model B90-327W15-06


You need to setup a feature called "Port Forwarding." Do you know what program you will use to access your desktop remotely? I recommend windows windows remote desktop or VNC programs.

The link below is a complete walkthrough on how to enable port forwarding for windows remote desktop from a westell 327.

There is an alternative option called a DMZ which you could use. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hook up westell 327w to linksys router

the wireless won't work. i have the same problem. westell modems aren't compatible with wireless function on some laptops therefore routing signal through a wireless router allows that. it can be done, i've done it but after modem was reset having issues. keep searching it can be done...

thanks for the vague and non-informative answer though whoever that was.

Poor wirless signal


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!
