Question about Westell Wirespeed VersaLink (A99-327W11-00) Router (A99327W1100)
I am a radio amateur trying to connect through a system called EchoLink. They tell me to use Port Forwarding with UDP port settings at 5198, 5199 and 5200 respectively. I have tried this, but I am still unable to connect with EchoLink all the time. Sometimes it works, but other times it doesn't. I have tried every possible alternative setting with TCP, UDP as well as Port Triggering. Again, sometimes it works, but other times it doesn't. Does someone have a good solution? Thank you.
Hello Michael Yancy,
Seems to be a bit dated... but the AMATEURS that have these ... like them.
Those trying to set them up... Not-so-much

Howdy - You may have a two fold problem here. First of all the Westell wireless modem/router 327w has the access IP address of - 192.168.1.254. (Or you can simply type "launchmodem" in the address bar - (one word - no quotes)) This will definitely get you in. You will then see the setup menu. That problem solved...
Now, from what I understand, you are using a Westell wireless modem/router 327w made for Bellsouth/ATT. If this is the case, you will see the Bellsouth Logo on the setup page. Additionally, it is stated on the page below, that you cannot use a Bellsouth modem/router for any other ISP (Internet Service Provider) This is due to the Bellsouth/ATT firmware that Westell builds into this modem/router.
This is the page link:
This is the relevant quote:
"The BellSouth supplied 327W (model C90-327W30-06) is made exclusively for BellSouth FastAccess. They are functionally different from retail Westells (or any model designed for use with other ISPs) and the firmware between them are not compatible and can not be interchanged."
That being said, you still might attempt to use this 327W with centurytel but I do not know if it will work. I use the Bellsouth 327W and it is GREAT. Good luck.
P.S. - Please be advised that Westell does manufacture an identical 327W that does NOT have the Bellsouth/ATT firmware.installed. This is the "generic" version I suppose but I have no experience with this one. If you need more just ask. :)

PS3 and Xbox ( NON BELKIN)
You Will Have to Disable the Firewall In Your modem / Router
And IF it is a router then Open The Ports
• TCP 80
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
• UDP 53
• TCP 53
And also make sure that UPnP is Enabled
