Question about Westell Wirespeed VersaLink (A99-327W11-00) Router (A99327W1100)

1 Answer

I am having trouble with Port Forwarding for the Westell 327W Wireless Router.

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

SOURCE: I can no longer connect to Echolink

How to set up the ports for Echolink:

  1. Go to this page (link).
  2. Choose the correct router model (if you don't find it, use a model similar to yours. The setup for all Westell routers is almost the same.)
  3. skip the advertisement on the next page (upper right corner)
  4. choose "Echolink" from the list.
  5. Simply follow the instructions.
  6. Voila!
In general:
  1. Important!! (and most often the reason why it is not working): Make sure that yourWindows Firewall is not blocking the application (see Control Panel-> Windows Firewall -> Exceptions) (details also here).
  2. You have to allow UDP destination ports 5198-5199 between Internet andPC in both directions and allow TCP (source port any, destination port5200) from PC to Internet.

If you have any more questions, just come back and leave a comment - I am happy to help.

Thanks for rating!

SOURCE: set to work with centurytel instead of bell south

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:
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/bellsouth/3.141_Westell_327W__wireless__Info#13772

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. :)

Need to open port 443 on my westell 327w how do i  do it

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on NAT then click on port forwarding .Then allow prot 443 it is for https then save settings and restart router .
Let me know if you need further assistance.

How do I hook up my Westell wireless router to the zhone modem so I can use my laptop. I have to use a dedicated line with a zhone modem to get DSL service. I want to hook up my wireless router Westell...

Connect the Westell wireless to the Zhone as if the Westell is the PC that used to be connected to it. Then connect the PC (through any available port) only to the Westell. That's the WIRED connection. For the wireless to work, after connecting through the WIRED connection, there should be a CD that came with it that will help you configure the wireless.
