Hello!

don't worry, we will figure it out.. i'm pretty sure that you surely did the right thing. its probably the modem itself that is not cooperating here. if you dont see any dsl light on the modem that is because the modem is not yet setup.

nwy, since you already try setting it up using the installation cd, let's try to do check it manually instead

check your cable connection:
step 1: Power supply connected
Step 2: Phone cable to the DSL port of the modem to the DSL outlet
Step 3: Ethernet cable from the ethernet port of the modem to your pc

device configuration:
Step 1:open browser and type 192.168.1.254
Step 2: create your own password
Step 3: username admin and the password you created
Step 4: type your ISP user ID and password
Step 5: it should give your the confirmation that you are now connected

Have a motorola modem and a AT&T DSL for internet. I can"t connect to the internet. The internet service said that the modem is fine but my drivers are bad. How do I get new drivers when I can't...


Ok, first off, lets have the computer talk to the modem.
When you first connect to your modem, (Power, phoneline (with filter in the correct port, and Ethernet cable to computer), the accompanying disk will negotiate the setup of your account.
If you already had an account, then proceed:

Connect the RJ45 cable to the computer and the offset port in the back of the modem (RJ45 is the cable that looks like a really big telephone jack, it only goes in one way)

once that is connected, bring up your browser. (Internet explorer)
Do not expect the internet just yet, but if it does, then you modem is working and you do not have wireless with this modem.

after you bring up the browser, type this into the address bar (where you have the http:.....)
192.168.1.254 and hit enter (on your keyboard)

Assuming everything is properly connect and powered up, you should see a display of your modem's internal menu page.

The first page requires some information in order to talk to the ATT servers.

You will need you account login name

xxxxxxxxxxx@att.net

and your password; the one you set up your account with

save the settings, Power cycle your modem (remove the power plug and after 10 seconds plug it back in)

You should have (left to right)
Power,
Ethernet
DSL
Internet
Activity
If the 5th light blinks on the modem after the restart, you are connected.
Try to surf on your computer.
If you still do not have the 5th light (activity) you may have gotten a bad modem.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Can't connect my wrt56gs to my westell 6100 modem, could you please help?


Hi,
You are using westell modem that means your internet service provider must be DSL.You will need to make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected to the modem. that will decide the type of ISP connection.

Westell versalink 327w from bellsouth can't connect


Howdy,

I do not think this modem will work for you. Contact O.T.C. to be sure. For a few details...

I presume that you can access your Westell wireless modem/router 327w with the IP address of - 192.168.1.254. (Or you can simply type "launchmodem" in the address bar - (one word - no quotes)) This will definitely get you in. You will then see the setup menu. If you see the Bellsouth FastAccess Internet Service logo then you know you definitely have a Bellsouth modem.

Now, let's presume, you are using a Westell wireless modem/router 327w made for Bellsouth/ATT. If this is the case, as stated above, you will see the Bellsouth Logo on the setup page. Additionally, it is stated on the page below, that you cannot use a Bellsouth modem/router for any other ISP (Internet Service Provider) This is due to the Bellsouth/ATT firmware that Westell builds into this modem/router.

This is the page link:
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/bellsouth/3.141_Westell_327W__wireless__Info#13772

This is the relevant quote:
"The BellSouth supplied 327W (model C90-327W30-06) is made exclusively for BellSouth FastAccess. They are functionally different from retail Westells (or any model designed for use with other ISPs) and the firmware between them are not compatible and can not be interchanged."

That being said, you still might attempt to use this 327W with orlando telephone company but I do not know if it will work. (Doubtful...) I use the Bellsouth 327W and it is GREAT. (With Bsouth/ATT) Good luck.

P.S. - Please be advised that Westell does manufacture an identical 327W that does NOT have the Bellsouth/ATT firmware.installed. This is the "generic" version I suppose but I have no experience with this one. If you need more just ask. :)

Good luck,

J

Set to work with centurytel instead of bell south


Howdy - You may have a two fold problem here. First of all the Westell wireless modem/router 327w has the access IP address of - 192.168.1.254. (Or you can simply type "launchmodem" in the address bar - (one word - no quotes)) This will definitely get you in. You will then see the setup menu. That problem solved...

Now, from what I understand, you are using a Westell wireless modem/router 327w made for Bellsouth/ATT. If this is the case, you will see the Bellsouth Logo on the setup page. Additionally, it is stated on the page below, that you cannot use a Bellsouth modem/router for any other ISP (Internet Service Provider) This is due to the Bellsouth/ATT firmware that Westell builds into this modem/router.

This is the page link:
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/bellsouth/3.141_Westell_327W__wireless__Info#13772

SB5101 Motorola Modem Disconnects Randomly


If all the lights go out I would assume you mean the power light as well. Couple of things I would look at:

Has your ISP replaced the modem including the power adapter?
Has your ISP verified there is no short on the incoming data cable? You could try to wiggle the incoming data cable to see if the lights go out. I would do the same on the power cable.

If it's not a mechanical fault (cables), verify that you have the correct and current drivers for your modem and operating system.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi! I use bellsouth dsl on my Medion desktop. Got a small Acer notebook id ike to add to the dsl network but - do not know how to do it. Can two wires (cables) run from one modem to both computrs? Can iT...


You will need to connect a router to the Westell in order to use more than one computer with your dsl. That modem will need to be put in bridge mode in order to allow it to work with the router.
Call ATT/Bellsouth support and tell them you need to setup your modem for bridge mode and connect your Linksys router.

ISP problem with 2wire 2700HG-B


When I purchased the same router on Amazon I did my best to set it up on my own, but you need the correct IP information you can only get from your customer support at AT&T. I'm using this router with an old Airport card in an 2003 iBook and a 2007 iMac (built in Airport express card). The set-up was all done wirelessly, with bellsouth (AT&T) customer service instructing me over the phone, the process took about 15 minutes.
My suggestion is to call AT&T and speak with someone who knows what their doing, and they do use the SBC global page to set up the unit, starting with http://192.168.1.254/ for the system summary, from there you can set up your password etc...
