Remote access through a Westell Wirespeed Versalink model B90-327W15-06

I have a Westell Wirespeed Versalink model B90-327W15-06. It works fine regarding the computers connected via the copper links. It also works okay with my notebook via the wireless port. I am having issues connecting my new notebook via wireless, but that is another problem.

I would like to access my desktop, or a desktop at home when I'm at work. However, I am not sure what I need to do to the Westell to allow a connection from the "public" network into my home network? What do I have to do?

Thanks!

Garbow,

You need to setup a feature called "Port Forwarding." Do you know what program you will use to access your desktop remotely? I recommend windows windows remote desktop or VNC programs.

The link below is a complete walkthrough on how to enable port forwarding for windows remote desktop from a westell 327.

There is an alternative option called a DMZ which you could use. Let me know if you need further assistance.

No... assuming you are using an ethernet connection. The USB light is only for when you are connecting via a USB cable.

My westell versalink 327W router works when my computer is connected to it but it is not sending out a wireless signal


Try the following:

Check if wireless is enabled on the router.

Check if the wireless switch (if any) on the computer is on.

Check if the SSID broadcast is enabled.

Try a different wireless channel (6 or 11).

Hope this helps!

I have switched to a Westell VersaLink 327W from a older Westell Wirespeed. The Wirespeed communicated via USB and the new Westell communicates via Ethernet. How do I get the computer to see the modem?


If you are using a Westell DSL modem with ethernet connection, then you connect the modem's ethernet port to the computer's network card. This also uses an ethernet cable. Good Luck
