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.
Reset your modem.
There is a reset button on the back.
Push it in and hold it down for thirty seconds with the modem on.
Log into the modem at 192.168.1.1 (admin/password=username/password)
You will need to change the modems administration username/password,
doesn't matter what to since we'll make it unreachable soon enough.
On the connection overview page goto configuration.
Go to DHCP configuration and switch the DHCP server off.
Then goto configuration and click on VC configuration.
All but the first VC should be disabled.
Click on the edit or configure button next to the first and enabled VC.
Switch from either DHCP or PPPoE to Bridge.
At the bottom of the screen click on set VC.
Your modem is now in 'full bridge' mode and will need to be reset again to get it out.
the default password for your westell 327 is username: admin and password: password, the admin admin combination is what usually isp providers such as verizon tells you to put in after configuring it for the first time. 192.168.1.1 is the url add for you to be able to access your westell 327. after accessing your modem you can find the WEP key below the modem, after enabling the security of your network the WEP kep is your default security password
