HI,

Im not sure what model of westell you are using but if you say that it has a USB port then it must be a westell 6100. With this type of modem { 3 ports } w/c are USB port , ethernet port and a phone port. Connecting another computer is technically a no-no for that device. It will create a conflict and the other computer wont work at all vice-versa. Youd experience slow connection too.

I would recommend you to just use 1 PC for this device OR you would consider on purchasing a router for that.A router is a separate device where-in you can connect multiple computers. modem --> router ----> computers { wired and wireless}. Routers are more secured and is very efficient when it comes to home networks.

Hope that helps and if you may have additional questions pls feel free to post it in FIxya.

Good Luck .

Westell 7500 set up guide


modems are not routers. Routers can port forward. You need your WAN to face your ISP, and your LAN will need to face your router. Once you have your router talking to your ISP you can set it up to hand out interal network services, but I doubt SOHO routers will do port forwarding. Routers, however, can do port translation like passing gaming traffic over port 80 (web). You can do that in the security tab on your linksys.

Can I connect 2 PC's to a Westell DSL2 + ROUTER? 1 through usb and the other through Ethernet...


- If you want to connect 2PC's to your Westell, make sure your Westell router has 1 or more Ethernet ports on it for you to connect your 2PC'sto the Internet simultaneously, if hasn't you may need a desktop switch for it.

Run Installation Wizard..


Yes. This means to say that you need to install all software that came with the modem, contained in a disc before connecting (installing) USB cable or anything else. After installation of the software and computer is restarted you can now then connect all peripherals for modem connection.

Connecting modem via ethernet cable


I'm not an expert in window based units but since it worked with Vista OS and not with XP. Sounds like you might try re-installing XP again. Take note on any windows that refer to the ethernet port during installation. It is likely you might of hit "next" without reading all the text. I know I have in the past. I changed over to mac and I know longer have any problems only at work but give then I give it to the IT Dept and wait and wait and wait.

USB Connection


Hi floinmist .

Westell 6100 modem by default can only be used for 1 PC . It cannot orit is not enabled to use for 2or morer computers as it creates a conflict within. Ethernet connection is the BEST connection for you to use.> your USB is sent to you by you provider { ISP} or by westell packages. Its is only a spare cable just in case your PC doesnt support ethernet connection ,  nothing else. 

To resolve this issue you might want to upgrade your modem to a router w/c is westell versalink . You can connect 2 or more computers  { wired or wireless connection } and is more stable compared to your westell 6100.

Connecting 2 computers could cause slow, intermittent and NO connections at all problems.

IF you have other questions pls feel free to ask and let me know if theres anything ii can assist you with .

Best wishes.

Prince

Westell Dsl2+ Router internet sharing


You can only use one or the other.

What you need is another router to plug the Westell one into. I have the same Westell modem and what I did was I plugged it into a wireless modem (since my Wii and Laptop use wireless) but it also has 4 LAN ports in case I need them.

Port forwording


ok port forward if any has router this is easy ill get too others in momment

routers port forwarding features type in ip address in internet explorer search bar at top
router ip's start like this 192. type the whole ip in
this will ask you for password and that usually is the word "password" or "admin" threw that you can set the router port forward by going down the list

now for comps with out routers
goto control panel
then network connections
right click on your connection
goto properties
goto advanced
goto settings
you will be directed to windows fire wall
goto exceptions add program or port you want to forward

basically port forwarding is a program that keeps 2 comps from having conflict with each other running the same program and helps in monitoring ports for intrussions
