Re: am i connected?
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

you dont need a Cd to install your wireless router. If you are looking for a CD , download the same from the routers site.
Or press the small reset button on the back of your router to reset the entire network, then connect the router to your laptop/desktop by a wired connection, navigate to your routes default webpage (details behind or benath the router) and then login and configure everything again.
It doesn't need a separate modem; it replaces a modem in your home network. If it's properly connected to the phone line, and you have an internet service provider (ISP) supplying you with a broadband connection, and the PC is connected to the router, then it should all work fine.
If it isn't all working fine, the most likely problem is either that the wires aren't connected in the right places, or that the PC's internet connection isn't set up properly (e.g. if you changed from dial-up with a modem to broadband with a router).
If you have recently changed from dialup to Broadband, and you're running Windows, use the Network Connections wizard to set up the internet connection. In Windows XP you can do it this way: 1) click on Start 2) move the mouse to Settings 3) click on Control Panel 4) double click on Network Connections 5) click on File 6) click on New Connection Wizard 7) follow the instructions.
Your ISP should have sent you a CD-ROM to help you to connect, so insert the CD when prompted by the New Connection Wizard.
Sometimes you can just insert the CD into the computer and you'll be prompted to do everything necessary to connect to the internet. BT, for example, do it this way.
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy. Click Here for step by step instructions about how to set up the router
make sure the cable going from your laptop/computer is connected - you NEED to be connected! or if you are going wireless and you know that your laptop wireless adapter is working and you can see the default wireless network - which is "linksys" (without the quotes) you should be able to connect to it and configure it without the CD..
If you reformatted your Windows on your pc, there's no need to change the settings of your network connections. The Westell 6100 can either be connected to your pc using the Ethernet port or the USB port if you're using the combo cable or Y-cable. It's more stable to use the Ethernet port for your Lan connection. For the USB, to reinstall the USB connection properly, you'll need the Verizon Installation CD. Make sure the USB is not connected to your PC first before you install it. You just need to follow the CD because it will tell you when to hook up the USB cable to the pc. If you still have the CD, after it runs, you have to select existing customer and then select connect new modem. After that you just to have follow the steps to install the USB connection properly and then your modem will work fine afterwards. If the problem still persists, you can try replacing the cable. If all else fails, it could be a modem problem already. You also need to check your Network Interface Card of NIC as we call it, it's built in your pc. it's the device that allows your pc to communicate with the modem. Normally after reinstalling windows, the NIC is forgotten, make sure you also install the drivers and utilities Cd for your windows.
check if your dell wireless card is properly installed. to do so, right click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop (or click start > right click my computer), then click on properties. Click on the hardware tab and go to device manager. a small box will appear which will list all of the hardware installed on your computer. click on the positive (+) sign beside network adapter, and make sure that it will show your dell wireless 1397 wlan card without any exclamation point or question mark beside it. if it does have the yellow ! or ? beside it, it means it's not properly installed or it's not yet installed so you might have to use the cd to install it. If you don't have the cd, download the driver from this site, http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R189133&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=259099 (xp).
if it is, make sure that your laptop is detecting your network from your westell 327w. to check, click start, connect to and click on wireless connections. on the wireless connections window, click on the name of your network and disconnect (if its connected already) and try to connect again.
if this doesn't solve the problem, try to click on START > RUN and on the pop up box, type in NCPA.CPL. on the network connections window, right click on the active wireless connection and click on properties. click once on tcp/ip settings to highlight the item and click on properties on the lower portion of the box. on the general tab, make sure that obtain ip address and obtain dns server is set to automatic. click on the alternate configuration tab and make sure that it's set to automatic as well.
that should solve the problem. if it doesn't try to post again what happened on this thread. thanks.
After connecting your router hardwired.. do the ipconfig in the command prompt window... make a note of your default gateway...It should be as 192.168.1.xxx Enter this no... in the address bar in Internet Explorer... Access the Modem... Try to configure it with the username and the password provided from your ISP, eg bell, verizon, primus etc..
this is the manual installation of your wireless router.. make sure that the modem is in the bridged mode or DHCP mode...
