How do I turnon the USB on the westell 6100 modum?


f 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.

Westell 6100 connected to a wireless router; wireless internet connection works but ethernet cable connections for desktop and PS3 will not work, even tho the desktop says its connected. This started after...


You have to make sure that in PS3 you select Automatic Configuration under Network Settings.

In Westell 6100, you have to make sure that there is "DHCP" configured on it. You have to access it via web interface and check under IP configuration or so.

Let me know if you want the detailed process for this.

MY COMPUTER WILL NOT DETECT MY MODEM. I AM TRYING TO GET CALLER ID APP. TO RUN ON MY MONITOR AND IT CAN'T FIND THE MODEM. I HAVE A WESTELL 6100.


THERE ARE A VARIETY OF REASONS A COMPUTER WILL NOT SEE THE ROUTER/MODEM.

1. THE CABLE BETWEEN THE COMPUTER AND THE MODEM COULD BE THE WRONG KIND. THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF CABLES A CROSS-OVER, TYPICALLY YELLOW WITH A CROSS OVER LABEL OR A STRAIGHT THROUGH CABLE. THE WRONG CABLE WILL JUST NOT WORK.

2. THE COMPUTER IS SET FOR A SPECIFIC IP ADDRESS AND GATEWAY WHICH IS NOT WHAT THE DEFAULT IS FOR THE MODEM. CHECK YOUR CONTROL PANEL, THEN NETWORK CONNECTION PROPERTIES, THEN THE TCP IP PROPERTIES. YOU WILL TYPICALLY HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN ON THE NETWORK PROPERTIES WINDOW TO SEE THE TCP IP. IF IT IS SET TO AN ADDRESS, WRITE THE INFORMATION DOWN THEN SET BOTH IP AND DNS TO BE OBTAINED AUTOMATICALLY.

3. THE MODEM COULD BE BAD, OR THE NETWORK CONNECTION ONYOUR COMPUTER COULD BE BAD OR HAVE A BAD DRIVER. CHECK THE SYSTEM, DEVICE MANAGER AND NETWORK ADAPTER TO MAKE SURE IT IS FUNCTIONAL, A YELLOW ICON INDICATES A PROBLEM.

CHECK IT ALL OUT, SEE WHAT YOU LEARN AND
IF ONE OF THESE ITEMS LEADS TO THE SOLUTION, PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK OTHERWISE SEND MORE INFORMATION BASED ON WHAT YOU LEARNED.

I had a wire come lose from our modem and don't know which it is. I need a diagram of the connections for the westell model 6100


Can you see where the wire came from? Is there still a color left on both pieces of wire? I assume Westell is either DSL or Cable, so it must be worth fixing. I will go looking on the westell site for you.

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

Problems with home networking between desktop running XP (wired) and laptop running Vista (wireless), using DSL broadband (PPPoE) internet connection, Westell 6100 modem/router & Linksys Wireless-G WR


Hi MissGarbs,

Based on your post and description, it would seem that your problem is caused by:
1. having 2 routers on the same system;
2. Both routers performs DHCP server function; and
3. Both routers use 192.168.1.1 as default IP Add.

Your problems are:
a. laptop has no internet access only local network; and
b. you cannot access the router to make changes.

A possible solution. Pls back up your configurations first before attempting changes (or log them down somewhere so if needed you can revert back).

A. Power off and remove all connections to the LinkSys WRT54GS, set it aside for the moment. The objective is to verify/establish Internet connection.

Connect your desktop PC via LAN cable to the Westell 6100. Boot your desktop PC, right click on the networking icon bottom right side in your system tray, click on Status, click on Properties button, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on properties button (mid right):
tick "Use the following IP address"
Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.4
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12
click on OK, OK, Close.

Power on the Westell 6100, give it time to sync and connect to your Verison. .In the desktop PC, open a browser. Verify that your desktop have access to the Internet, do it on a few sites. Should you have no internet access, pls seek assistance from Verizon tech support. You need not mention the LinkSys nor the laptop since you have as of the moment a single PC attached directly to the Westell 6100.

If it is all green & go, power up your laptop and boot to Windows. Remove the LAN cable at the back of your desktop and connect it to the laptop's networking port. Do the same configuration ("Use the following IP address") to the networking/LAN card of your laptop.
Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12

In the laptop open a browser. Verify that your laptop have access to the Internet, do it on a few sites. Should you have no internet access, pls seek assistance from Verizon tech support again. You need not mention the LinkSys nor the desktop since you have as of the moment a single laptop attached directly to the Westell 6100. (This is of course assuming that your laptop has a networking port)

If both the desktop PC and the laptop can now connect albeit individually to the Internet, the LinkSys may now be inserted into the system.

B. Disconnect the LAN connection of the laptop to the Westel 6100 and connect it to one of the 4 LAN ports at the rear of the WRT54GS; do the same with the desktop (use another LAN cable). The LinkSys for the moment need not be connected to the Westell. So in effect you have 2 units connected to the WRT54GS. Do a hard reset on the WRT54GS, with the power on, press on the small reset button at the rear of the unit. Allow it to reinitialize. Open browsers to both laptop and desktop. Type "192.168.1.1", password is "admin" and the username is blank, verify that you can open the LinkSys Web Configuration Utility. On either the laptop or the PC desktop (assuming both can access the same page), on the setup page of the LinkSys Config, change your Internet Connection Type to "Static IP",
Internet IP Address 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12

Scroll down to Network Setup,
Change IP Address to 192.168.1.3
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Disable the DHCP Server (You can have at any given time only 1 instance of a DHCP server, either from the LinkSys or the Westell, but you can also have NO DHCP server if you are using static addresses.)

Click on Save Settings at the bottom, exit, and close. Verify that the LinkSys can be accessed from any of your browsers by typing "192.168.1.3", if no; go through the procedure again very carefully. If yes, proceed to change the Default Gateway of both the laptop and desktop PC from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3, all other configurations stand.

In your laptop, right click on the WiFi networking icon (bottom right of System Tray). Click on Status, click on Properties button, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on properties button (mid right):
tick "Use the following IP address"
Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.6
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.3
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12
click on OK, OK, Close.

Verify that you can access/connect/ping 192.168.3; 192.168.4; 192.168.1.5; and/or 192.168.1.6 from either the laptop or desktop.

If yes, we can now connect the LinkSys WRT54GS to the Westell 6100. Remove the LAN cable attached to your laptop. Verify that you can still access/connect/ping 192.168.3; 192.168.4; 192.168.1.5; and/or 192.168.1.6 from the laptop even without the LAN cable since you are now connected via WiFi.

If yes, connect that LAN cable to the Westell 6100 LAN port, move the other end from 1 of the WRT54GS ‘ 4 LAN ports to the WAN likewise at the rear of the LinkSys.

Verify that you can access the Internet from either computer. At this moment, you have not assigned a security method (WEP, WPA, MAC Filter). Your choice as to what security you want implemented but offhand I would suggest the simplest, MAC Filter since any other would affect speed of your connection.

Additionally, you may want to enhance you browser connection. In Mozilla, click on Tools, Options, Advanced tab, Network tab, Settings button, tick "Auto-detect proxy settings for this connection, OK, OK;
In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN settings button, check "Automatically detect settings", OK, Advance tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.
In Opera, Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy server buttons, check "Enable HTTP 1.1 for proxy, OK, OK.

Normally (and perhaps easier for some) would be using the DHCP and not using static. Experience has shown me that static proves to be more stable especially if WiFi is concerned and in your case, only 2 PCs.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
