Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

RE: router problem

Hi Randy,  
I recently asked you a question about how to re-connect my few pc's and laptop to internet.  You responded with directions to type in the modem's ip and then user/pw etc.  I wanted to take the time to say thank-you. It solved my problem.    
Now, I'm not expecting you to solve every problem i have, but figured since you helped me out with the first one, i may as well see if you can help me with this:
After i regained connectivity, (thanks to you)  My internet has been ungodly slow.  Both on wireless and while connected directly.  Do you have any idea why?  I run DSL through the same phone line we take calls on, but before I reset the router (which caused my first issue) the internet worked fine on that line. The web-pages work, but they load and function as if i were still on dial-up.   what would you suggest i do?  
Thank you so much for your time and help!

You're welcome. anything to help out.

I'm sure you still have the phone filters installed.
So,
Run a speed test from here.
Then, compare it to the speed that you're paying for. For ex., you might be paying for a 1500 Kbps download and 256 Kbps upload.

If any speed (upload or download) is lower than 50 Kbps, call your service provider and tell them that you are not receiving the reasonable speed you paid for and that you have already cleaned your "cache" (they will suggest that you clean several files from your computer but that does not affect your speed).

Thank you for responding. Its rare for people to respond to helpers.

I went into Tool in internet explorer and made sure that the SSL and TSL buttons were all ticked. I also checked my firewall to make sure that the firewall recognised and accepted the entire network.

It also seems that when the laptops went online to Spotify the firewall prevented a connection.

Not quite got that bit sorted but all seems ok now so long as no one tries to connect to Spotify

Wireless Connection


The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.

The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).

Trying to connect between cable pc xp edition and new dell vista laptop


the SSID is only the name which your connection is called.
If you have security enabled, you will need to type in the passkey when asked.

First go to internet explorer open it and go to tools>connections tab, then tick 'never dial a connection' and close I. Explorer.

go to control panel>network connections>right click on your wireless connection icon, then go to the TCP/IP line, highlight it, click properties, then select 'Obtain IP address automatically.

Select Ok, then close window, go to internet explorer, then open it up and you may need to click refresh a few times ,but should connect

WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS


Hi,

I would suggest that you get a Wireless Router something like a LinkSys WRT54G. There other brands and models available. With such a WiFi router, you can still connect your old PC using the LAN/Ethernet and connect your new laptop without any wires. Most (but not all) would require that you run first the CD before installing the router.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Main PC can't connect but others can!


I had this model of router quite some time ago. I had some bad experiences where when I tried to login to it I was unable to, the web based management interface would not respond (as you have described) . Resetting the device would resolve this I would recommend trying that. Unplug it, wait a few minuets and plug it back in. Then try again to access the management interface. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or whatever via a web browser.

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.
