Westell D90-740010-06 DSL/Router + Compusa 54Mbps wireless router (SKU:333628)

Q: Westell D90-740010-06 DSL/Router + Compusa 54Mbps wireless router (SKU:333628)


I have subscribed to DSL and Teleco Video (cable) through my phone company. They provided the Westell Modem (Model #D90-740010-06). It has 4 ports but 3 goto the televisions for cable and the other is going to my personal computer.

I have a Compusa SKU:333628 wireless router I want to connect so i can also use my laptop.

my ISP will not assist since the connection works with model/personal computer with hardwired.

I thought I could just run a cable from one of the ports on the DSL/Router to the WAN port on my Wireless Router, however this did not work. So I ran a cable from one of the ports on the DSL/router to a regular ethernet port on the wireless routher (not the WAN) and I could hardwire both the desktop pc and wireless and connect to internet however the wireless would never work, my pc says wireless is connect but when I open IE or firefox it does not connect.

Can someone please help, I am going insane.

The following link will take you to the manual for my wireless router:

Preferred Solution: Westell D90-740010-06 DSL/Router + Compusa 54Mbps wireless router (SKU:333628)

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Westell D90-740010-06 DSL/Router + Compusa 54Mbps wireless router (SKU:333628)

You have 2 routers - they are both trying to issue IP addresses so it is not surprising that there is a problem. If you can disable DHCP on the wireless router it might work as a wireless switch or hub. It is worth a try.

So here is my case:


Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!

A:Netgear Wireless Router and Westell Modem + Router = Routed Bridge failure

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

Try this solution to configure it for bridge mode, direct from Verizon: http://www22.verizon.com/residentialhelp/highspeed/networking/setup/questionsthree/123756.htm

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

A:Westell DSL modem/router/firewall VS. Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router

I'd put the Westell in bridged mode, which will then emulate your old configuration, which apparently worked properly.

I bought the CompUSA wireless router during CompUSA's black friday sale for $2.95. It seems to be working fine, but it has the default password on. I figured this wouldn't be a problem and I could just reset it, but when I reset it the password is still on. Does anyone know what the default password for this router is, or what else I could try to reset it?

I just cancelled my service with centurylink as my internet provider. They didn't want the wireless dsl modem back. My new service provider did not provide me with a wireless router, just a lined modem. Is there a way I can set the versalink 327W to use it as just a wireless router?? My old internet was dsl. Now I have cable, so I can't just plug in my new service to the versalink, but I have oodles of ethernet cables to play with. There doesn't seem to be any kind of manual that will tell me this info and I don't know what settings to change so that its literally just a router.

A:How to use westell versalink 327W as a wireless router?

don't think that's possible.

Both Cable & DSL modems have a primary input from the ISP and one Ethernet connection
for the PC or router connection. If you've ever seen a router, ALL connections are Ethernet,
even the primary or WAN side that connects to the modem. Your DSL modem not only doesn't
have the right connection, but the circuit behind the DSL slot is all wrong

Hey everyone,

I found my old Westell modem/router that was through Verizon DSL, but I don't have Verizon anymore, and I have Service Electric. I had asked my questions over at DSLReports, and they said Westell could be used as a Ethernet router, but they still doesn't fully answer my questions.

The Westell modem/router model is A90-750015-07. I only have a modem through Service Electric. My questions are could this Westell modem/router be used as a separate wireless only router? Like, the D-link, and Linksys sells wireless routers, right? People could connect to it, or people could enable WPA for more secured? Could this modem/router act as wireless without the need of a DSL link through Verizon? I know on some wireless routers others are able to connect the modem to router using a WAN port, and then router to PC using a LAN port. However, I did not see any ports on this Westell for LAN and WAN. I'll show what I see from left to right.

This is what I see.

I have this Westell B90-327W 15-60 dsl modem/wireless router combo.

It works fine that's not the problem here\ I'm trying to get into the router settings so I can change some port forwarding settings.

The problem is I go to connect and it prompts for user name and password. Usually the default is leave username blank and 'admin' for password. Doesn't work though. I go to westell website and go to this model and it says that since its throug hverizon I have to contact them for support - but verizon website has no information on this model and is completely unhelpful.

I was wondering if anyone else has this model or has a westell modem and knows what the defulat username/password is.

Hi guys,

And all the other numbers are off. eg. next to the internet there
number 1 "off"

number 4 "off"

I'm trying to setup this wireless Netgear 54Mbps WG614 v7 router with a optusnet ADSL 4200 modem.
When I go threw the netgear the netgear interface a show. But I NOT have interent access.
When connteched directly to the ADSL Modem 4200 I get internet.
Oh the have a WG111v2 USB Wireless adapter.

NO internet from the router.

P.s tried reset router already. I get page can not be display.

A:Router Netgear 54Mbps issue

The ADSL mdoem is probably looking for the MAC address of your computer (which had normally been the first device modem connected to till now). The MAC address is unique hardware address assigned every network adapter.
=> Meaning your netgear router has its own MAC adress
=> And the modem won't provide internet connect to any hardware it sees that's different from the your PC's MAC address (we'll leave aside why some ISP's do this)

Couple options:
a) Most routers (you'll need look at the netgear) have a setup option where you choose to either
- Use the router MAC address (default)
- Use a MAC address you tell it (in which case you tell it the computer's MAC address)
b) But probably simplest to try and force your ISP to reset the address it looks for. Either call your ISP and tell them OR for most ISPs power down your modem for about 15 minutes. Should now accept the MAC address from router. (power down/up works most of the time, if not call ISP dor mac setup in netgear

I use verizon DSL and was sent the Westell 327W modem/router combo. It does the job nicely but has a weird problem. If I set the Westell firewall to anything above "none", it will reboot itself constantly. (I'm using Windows XP with SP2). With modem firewall set to "low", pages begin to load slowly, then not at all, then the modem power light goes red.. then power returns until the next time which comes very soon.

Verizon has said there's nothing they can do; The Westell firewall doesn't seem to like Windows firewall (or other firewalls for that matter..ZoneAlarm didn't like the Westell firewall either.) Westell had said that my Windows firewall should be fine by itself and I didn't need the modem firewall.

All runs fine with modem firewall set to "none" and Windows firewall happily firewalling. What good is a hardware firewall if it can't be used?

Any ideas? My email is [email protected] Emails full of wisdom greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Reset the router. 2. Diagnose the problem on windows 7. When I diagnose it, it searches for the problem, but right when it looks for a problem in "name resolution", it works again and says there is no problem.

Hi all, I've got a Westell 2200 modem from bellsouth, the default router.

I was wondering actually, how do I set my computer to automatically detect IP's so I can get into the setup? Thanks.

A:Westell 2200 Router/Modem

Generally when setting up Windows to detect the IP server through connection, a first
item seen is the internet connection wizard that brings you through the step by step.
In a few short pages, you will see the option to have Windows automatically detect an
active connection without a need for manually entering any IP address info. From that
point, you then enter the assigned user name and password provided by the service. A
manual that accompanies the router should explain the proceedures for setting it up.

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

Within the last 6 months, I purchased a Toshiba Satellite C655 running Windows 7. When I take it to my summer house, I can connect wirelessly initially to a Westell VersaLink model# B90-327W15-06 router, but by the end of the first day I lose my connection and cannot connect unless I direct cable to modem. When I return home, it works fine again. The next time I visited my summer house, the same thing has happened.
I worked with my IP support tech to try and resolve this issue to no avail. My husband's MACbook has no problem connecting wirelessly. The IP support tech had me enter the router's IP address to acess the router. When the Westell screen came up, no matter what menu option I clicked on the screen did not respond. My IP support person suggested I download firmware from the Westell site. My question is I am not sure what to download - is it 'triggering' or 'forwarding' firmware? Or is this not the right thing to be doing at all? Suggestions?

A:Westell 327W router dropping connection

If this is your Westell router I agree to upgrade to the latest firmware; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it. If it is owned by the ISP I suggest you double check with another tech support person, as sometimes ISP's use special firmware.

I don't understand your question about type of firmware. The routers I'm used to just have one variety of firmware--no choices.

Also, make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If you are using an integrated adapter get the driver from Toshiba's web site.

I'm trying to save the $10/mo. renting fee and see if I can use my old Verizon Westell 327w modem/router instead. I connected the ethernet cable running from the modem in the ONT to the ETHERNET port (kinda like the WAN port on other routers) on the Westell and then my computer into the other regular LAN port (on the westell). I can connect to the internet and browse any site but I can't access, the Versalink Gateway where I can change settings and configuration for the Westell router. When using the rental router I can access the gateway page (also Is it b/c the Westell is a modem/router and it conflicts with the modem in the ONT? Can I use it as a router only? The Westell is also meant for dsl and that's what I had before getting FiOS, is that a problem? The dsl light is flashing green all the time which according to the manual means it's trying to sync.

I am now trying to connect my Belkin 54g wireless modem to the DSL Modem. I have tried everything given on diffrent sites, none of them work. I have setup the westell modem as a bridge and deactivated DHCP, and athenticated PPPoE from my wireless router- But it doesnt work. Have tried everything given on forums to websites - No luck yet.Click to expand...

DHCP is seldom an issue -- It bugs me to no end that it gets the blame for so many issues!

You will need to document your ISP settings BEFORE connecting the router;
capture all the PPPoE data therein. Document and report back the IP, Mask,
gateway and dns addresses

THEN copy those settings into your router setup.

REACTIVE the router mode -- nothing wrong using it.
connect the modem--router--system and document your NIC settings seen
from run->cmd /k ipconfig all

see this post for debugging your settings

I have 3 Kindles (2 Kindles with keyboards and 1 kindle touch) that have wifi and they were working fine until our 2Wire router died and we got a new Westell DSL Wireless Gateway from ATT (model: B90-755025-15). All of our other wireless devices are working fine (Ipods, laptop, Ipad) with the new wireless router, but the Kindles will now not connect to our wifi network. I type in the same network key that I did for the other devices but it doesn't work. Amazon said all sofware was up to date on the kindles and it is a problem with the settings on the router because they were working before we got the router. AT&T won't help me because they say the other devices are working so it must be a problem with the Kindles. Is there a setting I can change on the router or does the Westell router just not work with the Kindles?

Hello Everyone!

I have a netgear WNR2000 (V2) that I want to use as my main router, but (and I assume) it is not a modem, so I have 2 modems that I might be able to use... 1st is a westell G90-610014-20 Rev: D, the other is a Westell E90-610014-06 REV: C...

if I can get this setup to work I will be so happy! but the closest I've got is the G90 connecting to the internet... but not talking right to the router... (can't even get the E90 to connect to the internet)

I don't really know much about this stuff as far as terminology... but I think what I need to do is bridge the modem???

Thanks for any replies!

having a bit of trouble connecting my new netgear rangemax wireless router to my verizon dsl and my modem is a westell 6100. I really have no background in network connecting so a little help is necessary. Setup is a destop to a modem to a router to a ps3. The ps3 gets a signal no problem without even installing the setup disc, its just that im having trouble connecting the internet to the router itself. When is comes to Subnet and Ip and Gateway im lost. Considering when i look at the connections i have Verizon online, Westell Wirespeed Dual Connect Modem and NVIDIA nFORCE MPC Networking Controller, don't have any clue which to connect to. Any walkthrough or help would be greatly appreciated.

First of all, thank you for reading this post. As I look through the history on this forum, I see a lot of questions similar to mine but yet I've been unable to correctly fix the problem I am having.

I am working in a K-8 school which has all rooms in the building wired for the Internet. We have Verizon Business DSL which came with a Westell A90-750015-07 router modem. The phone line comes into the building, connects to the Verizon router, which then connects to a series of switches that go out to the entire building.

Now, one of administrators in the building has a Cisco E1000 wireless router in their room. They would like to use it so that they can have wireless access in their room and for any visitors (other admins, accountants, etc.) to use in her office.

My problem is that I cannot get the wireless router to even pick up the Internet in that room. I have it plugged directly into the room's connection, but computers wired or wirelessly connected to the Cisco will not pick up any Internet connections. I have seen many threads about disabling DHCP on the Cisco router, etc. I have tried to copy the settings to the best of my ability, but I cannot seem to get it to work. Does anyone have any experience with this particular router to help me get her connected in her room through her Cisco E1000 router?

Thanks in advance!

A:Verizon Westell router to Cisco E1000 not working...

All you should need is an access point in the room, not another router. As long as that AP has some sort of security for guest and LAN users you should be fine. Why add more complexity if there is no need to.

I am guessing with this router that the LAN interface is not part of your LAN.

I just received a Westell 2100 Wirespeed Dual Connect DSL modem that I ordered. I also have a D-Link DI-604 Ethernet Broadband Router which I've been using for a while now to network the two PC's that I have.

The Westell is up and working (which is how I am connected now). What I want to do is connect the Westell DSL modem to the D-Link DI-604 Ethernet Broadband Router (so that I can share the Internet connection, and still have a network connection between the two PC's also).

The problem that I am encountering is whenever I hook up the
D-Link, I cannot establish an Internet connection, nor connect to the Westell or D-Link's setup through their IP's, as if connecting the D-Link is causing some sort of blockage in the network.

When trying this, I connect a CAT5 cable from the WAN port on the D-Link router to the ethernet port on the Westell DSL modem, and both the PC's are connected to the ports 1 and 2 of the D-Link router.

I can ping the Westell and D-Link's IP's but I get no response. If I disconnect the D-Link router I can enter the setup of the Westell modem, if I disconnect the Westell modem and connect the D-Link then I can conncect to the D-Link's setup IP. With both connected I can't do either one.


Note: I updated the Firmware on the Westell Wirespeed Dual Connect DSL modem and it is now up to date.

Update: The Westell DSL modem needed to be set as "Bridged Ethernet" and the D-Link had to be setup for PPOE.

In other words, it working now .

I am very new to port forwarding and firewall issues. I have been told that the software issue that I have probably is a router/modem issue as every other possibility has been ruled out. I have a Westell 7500 modem. How do I access, set or change settings on it?

And, which is the better modem, a Westell 7500 or a Westell 327W??

I recently needed a new router from my internet provider. They came to my home and set up Westell 7500 modem router. My home computer brings up internet with no problems or delays. Unfortunately, my wireless laptop won't recognize any network. I plugged it in using the ethernet cord directly to laptop and modem and still no internet. I'm frustrated, I use my laptop all the time and without the internet it's worthless. Can someone suggest a solution to this problem? My laptop runs Windows XP, if that helps.
Thank you for your time!

A:No Internet connection Windows XP and Westell 7500 modem router

does the laptop work anywhere eles

so the laptop does not work on cable or on wireless
your home computer how is that connected ?

lets see an ipconfig /all from the working home computer

and then from the laptop lets see a ipconfig /all and xirrus screen shot = make sure we know which ipconfig /all belongs to which PC
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

The Internet on our westell modem model 6100; would cut out. It would flash on then flash off. And sometimes it would turn red. We have a asante rotuer coming off of the modem and thats how i would connect. But since i moved my computer back upstairs I am now connected threw our Belkin wireless router model F5D8230-4 v2. So the modem hasn't screwed up lately since i moved upstairs. But now our Belkin is. It will reset like atleast 15 times in one day. So thats very frustrating to deal with. But now the internet has gone very slow. I have no idea why. I "restore to default" on Belkin and Westell. And there both slow, and the Belkin is still reseting. my ISP is frontier. I am getting a new Belkin wireless router/modem in one, model F5D8236-4. I am also connected threw Ethernet and when I connect with my iPod on to the Belkin router it is slow!
So if you need anything thing to assist you in helping me just tell me.

I have a Westell Wirespeed B90-210015-04 DSL modem that I received from Verizon and used for their DSL service. I quite them and now would like to use the DSL modem with my new CenturyLink DSL service. Their sales staff said that their DSL was plug and play with most modems, but after my Westell did not work I called their tech help and they said, NO, third party modems must have their port settings changed to "835" for Century link. This DSL modem was manufactured specifically for Verizon. I can't help directly from Westell it seems. Can I change the port settings myself, and if so how?
