I'm trying to change my port forwarding settings due to my extremely slow download speeds. i have a westell versalink router model number d90-327w15-06. when i enter my ip address in my browser a prompt box pops up and asks me to enter a username and password and by default they are both supposed to be admin. For some reason it doesnt work for me and i don't remember changing the password or username..How do i fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I use tcp optimizer, it's by far the easiest way to change those settings.. it is available for free download here. Make sure you read the instructions on the download page. http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
Actually the application may be games or any other software which it setted port is not open/accessable through your router and it will work by default ports and the speed or the performance is very slow- Try to configure proper port forwarding according to the application port settings check those ports are open after configuration
As I had mentioned earlier to another gentleman, who had a similar issue; those SOHO routers and modem/routers have issues with their advanced functionalities which includes port forwarding. The first thing you must do is
- Make sure 'block anonymous internet requests', is disabled in the router's settings
- Go to the following website http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scanner/
- Try to see if there is a service running on port 80
If the port is open (which I believe would be a least possibility), there is something else we are missing here.
