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. :)

Unable to get verizon westell modem/router to work

2272d11.jpg

Try this:
Go to the interface through your browser: 192.168.1.1
Go to profile editor, if there is a profile listed, click edit. Then enter in your username under Account ID and then your password. Hit save, then OK.
Then hover over the configuration menu option, click on advanced WAN. It should look like the following attached screen shot to this message. If the VPI/VCI and Protocol are different, which they probably are, click the edit button. Make sure it matches exactly as it appears above. VPI=8, VCI=35, Protocol=PPPoE.

Forgot the Network Key

Ok, if her main computer is connected wireless, and still works, you may not have to reset the router at all.

Go here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html

download it, and run it on her main computer. It basically finds the key that windows has already saved, and allows you to view it.

Let me know if you have any other issue. :)

Westell model 327w

you can run another ethernet cable from your westell modem to your laptop. hence, if you want your laptop to connect wirelessly, it must have a wireless card/adapter inside. if it already has a wireless adapter, it should automatically detect your wireless network and you just need to connect to it (note: you need to enter the correct wireless security/network key if you have enabled it on your modem). by default the serial number is the ssid of the router and the wireless security is disabled. but if you are not sure of your wireless security, log on to the modem's web user interface by typing http://192.168.1.1 on your web browser's address. then go to the wireless section and verify your wireless settings from there.

hope this'll help you.

ciao!

hi, sometimes if changes was done you need to recofingure you're wireless all over especially if the key has been saved on your pc to be rembered, you could actually reset your router and configure it by going to your routers gateway by doing an ipconfig you'd be able to see the gateway..launch it in your browser n youd be able to access the configuration of the versalink...i could actually give you more detail though im in a hurry, better you call your isp provider or bellsouth now att since westell versalink are manufactured by them and they give great tech support for connectivity problem...
