Quote from bbser :
How I hooked up.
1. Plug internet (i.e. cable from ur modem) into WAN port.
2. Plug computer into any of the LAN ports
3. Power up & log on to 192.168.200.1 (name: admin password: password) to turn on Firewall
--wish you would have bought more and not been scared by folks saying this was locked and no good.


ignore all the VoIP/VoLAN information.
That part of the router is switched off in the firmware. It will take a mod to make it work...
...however VoIP/VoLAN VLAN (virtual [wireless]LAN) is always on so there will always be an active wireless signal from this device even when you turn the wireless off.

it is not "locked" to verizon as far as the basic router functionality goes.

Has [?deactivated?] [Standard USB type A] USB 1.1 Port (i.e. print server) (USB B!) (Where can you get USB B to B Cable?) [?firmware will need to be modded to enable?]
NO pre-made custom firmware avail. (ex. tomato, dd-wrt) --roll your own firmware (mod the linux build)
discussion on DD-WRT forums [dd-wrt.com]
Uses BCM4318 chipset, same as D-Link DIR-320, which does support DD-WRT. 32MB Etron EM6AA160TS-5G memory.


READ THE MANUAL HERE (it's also on your cd) > http://www.mediafire.com/?njqjo0tzynn
USB port is powered and active. But there is no software to configure it yet, according to manual

Westell/Verizon "Open Source uncompiled" Firmware [westell.com]
Any Linux gurus..... Please hack the firmware. Instructions are provided on the same webpage.

How to install and build the open source package

You should have the following files:
A90-750115_toolchain.tar.bz2
A90-750115_VER01_00_00_02.tar.bz2

UPDATE per hard_where on dd-wrt form:
If you want to compile the source from westell extract the linux tools (toolchain) to /opt/toolchains, not /opt as the readme specifies. After this change it will compile without issue. I have successfully compiled the firmware and it is very similar to openwrt


As root cd to /opt/toolchains and install A90-750115_toolchain.tar.bz2 as follows:
tar -xvjf A90-750115_toolchain.tar.bz2

From your working directory install the source as follows:
tar –xvjf A90-750115_VER01_00_00_02.tar.bz2

To make the source package execute the following commands:
cd SW
make PROFILE=A90-750115

The resulting upgrade file App.upg can be found at SW/targets/A90-750115

This upgrade file can be applied from the modem's GUI firmware upgrade page under the Advanced tab.

Access Point Intructions:
Quote from digitaldawg :
Got mine today. I set this up as a second wireless access point to get better WIFI coverage in my house. I already had an ethernet cable run to the other part of my house, so this worked out great. Been wanting to do this for a while and for $6.50 this deal can't be beat.

Steps I did to make it an additional access point in case anyone else wants to do it:
1) Plug computer into Verizon router with ethernet cable(any port except WAN).
2) Access admin page at 192.168.200.1. (username: admin password: password)
3) Cancel all the whining about not being plugged into WAN.
4) Go to Advanced-->Public Lan. Uncheck Enable DHCP Server and uncheck Public LAN Enable and Apply
5) Go Wireless Settings-->Basic Security Settings. Change the SSID to match your existing routers SSID. Change WEP key to match your existing wireless router and Apply. Note: If using WPA instead of WEP, click Advanced Security Settings and add the info from your existing router there first.
6) Go to Advanced-->Private Lan. Uncheck Enable DHCP Server
7) Change the VZ routers IP to a free address in the same range as your primary router. (For most that would be something like 192.168.1.254, assuming your primary router is 192.168.1.1) and Apply. This is the address you will use to access the VZ router for any further configuration.
8) Now unplug your computer. Plug ethernet cable into VZ router(any port except WAN) and plug the other end into your network.

It should now be working. You can test it by disabling wireless access on one of your routers and verifying that you can still connect to the internet using WIFI. Then do the reverse to check the other.

These steps worked for me. Use at your own risk.

I have a Westell (edit: model 327W) wireless router/DSL modem combination that we're using as a router behind our cable modem. I have to reset it daily (sometimes twice) because wireless computers can't get through to the outside world.

Should I worry about this router having the same problem? I guess it's worth $6.50 to find out. In 4 1.
