your westell is a modem/router which means you can hook up more computers wirelessly. yes, if you're using a laptop make sure it has a wireless card and for desktop computer..you have to have a wireless adapter...
Try this, go to network connections, right click on your connection, click on properties, where it says this connection uses the following items, scroll down to internet protocol, highlight it then click on properties below it, make sure Obtain IP address automatically is checked.
do this on both computers. Let me know if it works. lone99star
I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....
you can run another ethernet cable from your westell modem to your laptop. hence, if you want your laptop to connect wirelessly, it must have a wireless card/adapter inside. if it already has a wireless adapter, it should automatically detect your wireless network and you just need to connect to it (note: you need to enter the correct wireless security/network key if you have enabled it on your modem). by default the serial number is the ssid of the router and the wireless security is disabled. but if you are not sure of your wireless security, log on to the modem's web user interface by typing http://192.168.1.1 on your web browser's address. then go to the wireless section and verify your wireless settings from there.
Did you try turning the Radio Button on. I had the same problem for awhile until I realized the 1st Silver button on the Keyboard that turns on the Radio signal. Thats how you get the wireless capatability to work. Try that.
Looks like you are running Microsoft XP Home SP2. If you recently bought the computer (just over 30 days ago) you might be getting this message because you need to activate windows. Look on your start menu under system tools for an "activate windows" icon and follow the prompts.
the wireless won't work. i have the same problem. westell modems aren't compatible with wireless function on some laptops therefore routing signal through a wireless router allows that. it can be done, i've done it but after modem was reset having issues. keep searching it can be done...
thanks for the vague and non-informative answer though whoever that was.
