Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem
First time asking for help from you, liked what I saw. I just got a Westell 6100 to replace my 6110 that crapped out. Problem is I just need a dumb modem, not a smart modem with firewall, power windows, door locks, and keyless entry. I just need something to connect to the internet. I have Linksys 160N I use for firewall.
The issue is that I can't get people into my servers now that we have this damn thing. I've bridged the modem, turned off the DHCP and then get no internet, I know I'm missing something, but what? Is it possible to get this 6100 to work just like the 6110?
You have to activate DHCP in order to make the westell a modem "dummy" (it will just act as a bridge to the internet from your Linksys.
on the modem, go to a setting that is similar to "Public Routed Subinterface". dont choose anything that says "proxy" or "NAT".
find out the Linksys's IP adress by looking at the devices or computers list on the Modem's home page.
Now, put that IP adress on the setting "Public Routed Subinterface" (or similar). If it has a "Subnet Mask" option, type in "255.255.255.0". Also, If it has a "open firewall" or "bypass firewall" option, enable it.
If it does not have a firewall option, disable the firewall on the MODEM, not the linksys. This is also called DMZPlus mode.
If the above does not work, go here on the entire instrucitons for setting up the linksys with your modem.
