I have a Verizon USB 150 internet connection. I would really like to get a router, so I can use more than one computer in my house. I'm not sure which would work since it connect with a USB port. Vz isn't very helpful.
You arent gonna get a router to run off of a usb connection card linksys does make a router for PCMCIA cards called the WRT54G3G what you can do with your usb connection card though is to install it on one computer and then use ICS (internet conection sharing) to share between the two computers.

If you can reset all the parameters, however if you know all the info I would suggest that you use something like a Belkin. You need the IP "name" for you, the connection password, and you really need to know what you are doing.
The only ISP that cannot easily be used with another modem is Sky as they deliberately use a different encoding. Yet again another reason NOT to use sky, it is difficult to monitor, and to use other equipment.
there might be a problem with the Linksys router, the Westell 6100 should be 1st set to bridge mode in order for your router to be connected to it. or there could also be a proble on the Verizon server.
i worked for verizon for two years and I encounter this problem many times,to tell you honestly,its not with you internet connection since if you'll notice,while you are connected to the internet and you make a call or call someone,its interrupted... Obviously,its the phone itslelf,the signal comng from the phone is different from the signal of the internet...thats the reason why you need a modem to convert the signal coming from the phone line to make it work for internet,,,what I suggest is you change the DSL plan from the Dry Loop to the regular dsl with the phone...
You cannot use the UBS and ethernet conenction of your modem at the same time, so it only means that you can only use either the UBS or the ethernet connection of your modem and since you want to use to computer and get online at the same time you need to have a router to share the internet connections on 2 computers at the same time, you can get this router BEFSR41 or WRT54G...
Unplug the plug (from phoneline) on back of USB modem, plug into Zoom router. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
It's clear that the router has lost its connection through the modem since there are no computers that can get online through it. Either the router lost the right settings or the modem is not online. have you tried to bypass the router and try the internet through the modem and check the internet connection? What is the brand or the model of the your modem from verizon?
for westell 6100 modem usb driver installation follow the steps for windows xp -close all programs -unplug usb cable from the pc -insert installation cd from verizon -plug usb cable back to pc -wizard will pop up found new hardware -click next then follow instructions -select usb connection on the installation
