The driver for your Dell wireless card should have installed a wireless client application. If you open up the application you should see all the available wireless networks within range. The one with the best signal is yours, not sure what AT&T would've named it. It may be open then you just need to connect to it and that should be it. If it's secured then you will be asked for a password/key to connect, this would have been provided by AT&T most likely, enter the key and your notebook should connect. If you don't know the key then call customer support, they will have to provide you what the key is.

    Did you try plugging in the notebook with a network cable directly to the router? If that also gives you limited connectivity you might have a static ip address configured.



    Try plugging it in. Then type cmd in the Run box. Then type: "ipconfig /all" without the quote at the command prompt. Copy the info that provided for us. Thanks.

I need to know how to hook up a westell versalink ? i dont have directions & i have a dial up connection on my desk top . do i need a server ? i have no idea what to do !!


In order to setup the versalink you need an active DSL account, a phone line cord, a phone jack, a pc or mac, and an ethernet cord or wireless ethernet card. Plug in the phone cord to the phone jack and to the DSL port on the versalink- once the DSL light is solid, plug in the ethernet cord to the computer you have, or enter the wep key on the bottom of the modem into the wireless manager for your system. At that point, if you need further assistance in getting online, contact Verizon or Bell (whichever is your DSL provider)- they can and will walk you through setting up the versalink to connect to the internet.

You will need to check the settings of the router. You are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the modem. Your internet service provider is DSL. You can try to reconfigure the router. Press the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. release it. unplug the power to the router. plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and try to reconfigure the router.

You can manually go into the network settings and delete the old network configuration, and set up a new one. If all else fails, go to your desktop (which I am assuming connects OK) and check the settings on it, and use those to set up the laptop. Hope this helps

So you are connecting the DSL Modem output to the D-Link's LAN port 1, right? In this case, you should connect the DSL Modem output to the D-Link's WAN Port, which is between the power input and the LAN outputs.

If it doesn't work that way, check this out:

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Changing from DSL to Road Runner Turbo


I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....

Need the installation drivers


The Westell 327W (VersaLink) combination DSL 'modem', router and wireless access point will, for most people, be supplied with their new DSL service. Were you using a DSL service and suspended or disconnected? You should still have the drivers in your original computer. If not, the DSL people will install from their side.
I'll keep looking for you.

Wireless connect


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.
