On connecting your laptop wirelessly, it is best if you set the router to have wireless security first.

accessing the router's setup page:

open IE, then type http://192.168.1.1 on your address bar, it will ask you for a username and password, thats both admin (these steps will depend if you have changed the settings on the router)

once opened, go to the wireless tab, change your Wireless Network Name (SSID) to something esle instead of Linskys, like your name perhaps. then set the channel to 11ghz and hit save settings.

now look for a Wireless Security SUBTAB, enable to wireless security, under security mode select WPA-Personal (PSK) set your algorithm to TKIP and make up a password on the blank space that says Passphrase / Pre Shared Key , that will be you wireless security code. now hit save settings.

in connecting your wireless laptop, make sure the wireless adapter on the device is enabled and it will automatically locate the wireless network and wil ask you for the security code, once you place it, you will get connection.

All the lights on my Westell Model 6100 are green except the internet light is red. What does that mean? Thank you!


The reason why your internet light is red for the westell model 6100 is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this modem. Enter the username and password for your internet connection. You will get the username and password from your ISP. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

I need to set up my IP provided WiFi router-modem (Westell 327M) for use with my two laptops, such that the router-modem provides me internet access via ethernet cables (not interested in the WiFi aspect...


first check with the ISP if any DNS server settings or proxy settins are required(but i think you can alternatively connect your laptops these may have ben already set on the laptops but just in case)

now if your ISP accepts you to have more than one connection from the same link then you can connect the connect the cable from the modem to the INTERNET/WAN areas and you can connect the ethernet cables in the ports marked 1,2,3,4

here check that if you are only etting the link on the computer connected to port1 and no connection on the others then make a small adjustment disconnect the cable from WAN/Internet port and connect it to the Port1 and the computers to 2,3,4

now that you are saying that u r not interested in the wifi so it is advisable that you go to the home page of the router and from there to the wireless page and disable the wireless broadcast of the router for safety purposes

this can be changed any number of times back and forth

cheers

Cannot connect to my Sony laptop with Windows vista


Hmm..the best way I can think of here is to get both Techs on the same line so that they can discuss what the problem really is. I've tried this before and I have to admit. Things worked out very well, It seems a device built in my laptop was not running properly, so I had to install it again, it's called the NIC or Network Interface Card and it's the device that allows your laptop to communicate with the modem.
Regarding the lights in your modem. The DSL light should always be Steady Green, that means that your modem is in Sync with the network. If it's blinking, check all connections, make sure every physical connection is connected properly, if the dsl light is still blinking, that's a network problem already and you should call Verizon so that they can send a tech to fix it.

Sometimes it's difficult to isolate the problem for an internet connection, but to make it clearer for you and anyone else with the same issue. The modem is the central part of the connection. It's a verizon problem if the problem is the connection of the modem to the central office, and you can check it with the DSL light and Internet light.

It can either be a Verizon Problem or a Modem to PC problem, if the problem is between the modem to the pc. Possible Scenarios here are: The modem is defective, the NIC is defective, the Ethernet Cable is defective.
The first is a verizon problem only if the modem is still covered by warranty, if the modem is qualified for a DSP or a Device Service Plan, then that's good, you don't need to buy a new modem anymore. The second and third issue is a physical problem with the devices already and you'll need to have your pc fixed.

Try and isolate the issue, and if you can, let me know and I'll let you know what you can do to fix your problem.

Get no connection useing 6100 modem connected to wireless B router


Hi starman re westell 6100.

Hi i hope you have find solution with your issue ifnot let me walk you through on how to get it up and working.

First , you need to connect your modem directly to your computer. We need to access its Graphic Unit Interface by opening your browser and type onyour address bar its default gateway.

The def. gateway can be 192.168.1.1 or depending what ISP youre connected to . For ATT broadband its 192.168.1.254 / verizon broadband is 192.168.1.1..  { onyour address bar : type in 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter.

to check def gateway : you can go to start > run > cmd then enter > on DOS command type in ipconfig /all  then HIT enter > itl provide you your network list > your default gateway is your westell modem or if your linksys is connected than it should be you linksys.

Itl route you to your westell page. Try to go to  Broadband and choose connection or configure connection.button. Look for configure and by default you will see its in PPPoE> change it to bridged ethernet and save.

By enabling bridge to your modem w/c is westell youl have a chance to configure you linksys to PPPoE. 

Connect you westell to your linksys and on your computer try to check your default gateway as seen above. By default linksys can be access by typing in 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. Itl prompt you for UN and PW: by default your Username is : Blank and Password should be admin. { blank = dont type anything}

On your linksys SETUP page > by default it is set to DHCP or obtain IP address automatically. Pls change it to PPPoE and type in your UN and PW : username@isp { your ISP name}. and hit save settings or save.


Restart your linksys and try to browse to check fore connection.

========================
For all types of modem such as westell : you need to set it to bridge mode first foryou wireless router to work ie linksys. Set linksys to PPPoE .. that should work .

For more detailed steps or questions re: this issue pls dont hestiate contact me. Best wishes.


Pls enable you Wireless Encryption for your home network security.

Ciao .
