Question about Westell Wirespeed VersaLink (A99-327W11-00) Router (A99327W1100)

Forgot the Network Key

My Aunt has a Westell Versalink 327W wireless router for her Bell South DSL, and she forgot the network key for the wireless connection. I would tell her don't worry about it because she's still connected on her main computer, but her daughter's computer can't connect because she doesn't know the network key, and I want to connect and don't know the network key. She's asked me to try to solve the problem and the only answer I can come up with is reseting the router and creating a password she can remember. I just need to know how to do this. Any help would be great.

You can get the network key if you can connect a computer directly to your westell modem. you can use any of the 4 ports on the back of it labeled E1,E2, and so on. then open your internet explorer and in the address bar type any of this http://dslrouter or http://192.168.1.1. next click the configuration menu on the top then select wireless. you'll see there the security or authentication type.

if you really want to reset the modem, press the reset button on the back of it for 5-10 sec.

Log into the Router and go to the Wireless Config. The router address would be the default gateway for the connected PC; most likely 192.168.1.1 or something of that nature. There you can create a new network key or use a converter to convert the hex to decimal.

SOURCE: Forgot the Network Key

Ok, if her main computer is connected wireless, and still works, you may not have to reset the router at all.

Go here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html

download it, and run it on her main computer. It basically finds the key that windows has already saved, and allows you to view it.

Let me know if you have any other issue. :)

My grandpa set up our wireless network a few years ago, but bless his heart, he passed away just this year and we forgot our WEP key and we need to reset it or just get ahold of it so the family can access...


Sorry for your loss.
  • Note: Resetting your router to the factory defaults not only changes your gateway user name and password to the factory default values, but it also deletes all your home network settings. This includes the SSID and network encryption key. After you reset your gateway to the factory defaults, your home network won't be accessible until you reconfigure your router and all your network devices to use the same SSID and network encryption key.

To reset your VersaLink 327W gateway to the factory settings:
Hold the reset button on the back panel of the VersaLink gateway for 30 seconds.
  • All your settings will be lost including network encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered.
  • The gateway user name and password will revert to the default of Admin as the user name and Password as the password.
  • You will need your user name or password to reconfigure the unit..

Your VersaLink 327W gateway is now using the default settings for the network configuration. This includes the default SSID and network encryption key. You must re-configure your VersaLink gateway to match your previous settings that were assigned to all other devices on your wireless network. Otherwise, no other network devices will be recognized.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I need to enable security protection on my Westel 327W dsl router


You need to access the router and find security settings and look for WEP encryption, follow the steps as outlined for full security.

Note also that any existing users will need to type in this encryption key to access the network.

I need wep key westell model 327w


Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!

I need the key towestell 327w router


The default user/password is "admin" & "password". If that doesnt work then you'll need to reset the router if you forgot the login password. The tiny reset button is on the back or underside.
