20 Most Recent Westell Wirespeed ProLine 6100 Router (C9961001100) Questions & Answers


If your object is to get Netflix on your TV, and not knowing what brand or model TV you have nor whether or not you have an existing wi-fi system, that question is a little difficult to answer. For example, I have Suddenlink cable, wi-fi, and can access Netflix and other similar providers through either my TV or TiVo, although I always go through TiVo. You may need to update your TV.

Connect what? The obvious question would be can you connect a computer via a Ethernet cable? If so, it's most likely your computer. Is the wireless secured?

f you reformatted your Windows on your pc, there's no need to change the settings of your network connections. The Westell 6100 can either be connected to your pc using the Ethernet port or the USB port if you're using the combo cable or Y-cable. It's more stable to use the Ethernet port for your Lan connection. For the USB, to reinstall the USB connection properly, you'll need the Verizon Installation CD. Make sure the USB is not connected to your PC first before you install it. You just need to follow the CD because it will tell you when to hook up the USB cable to the pc. If you still have the CD, after it runs, you have to select existing customer and then select connect new modem. After that you just to have follow the steps to install the USB connection properly and then your modem will work fine afterwards. If the problem still persists, you can try replacing the cable. If all else fails, it could be a modem problem already. You also need to check your Network Interface Card of NIC as we call it, it's built in your pc. it's the device that allows your pc to communicate with the modem. Normally after reinstalling windows, the NIC is forgotten, make sure you also install the drivers and utilities Cd for your windows.

You have to make sure that in PS3 you select Automatic Configuration under Network Settings.

In Westell 6100, you have to make sure that there is "DHCP" configured on it. You have to access it via web interface and check under IP configuration or so.

Let me know if you want the detailed process for this.

Your wireless network must be secured
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.

are you talking about the security key? if thats what your lloking for it should be located on a sticker on your router. or by default there shouldn't be any password on it. i suggest call your manufucturer to help you reset your router

Westell... | Answered on Apr 02, 2010


Are one or both of you behind a router of any kind that might have a firewall feature on it blocking you from communicating with one another. It is possible that the specific port used to connect the two of you has been accidentally blocked. Try resetting security on one or both of your routers, or try connecting directly to the internet by connecting your modem to your Xbox360 directly. Doing this will show you where the problem is, if it is with the router than going directly to the modem should resolve the issue. If this does not resolve the issue than perhaps there is something wrong with your settings on the Xbox. Comment if these suggestions do not help you and we can move forward with more possible solutions.

Good Luck!

Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

If it works your good to go!

Hope this tip helps :) Tell your friends and ratings are nice. Just kidding, I just hope I helped.
