1. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (MODELS 6000, 6100, 6110)
The Westell® Modem provides reliable, high-speed, Internet access to your existing home or office phone line.
Your ADSL connection is “always-on” ending the hassles of dial-up modems and busy signals. Installation is easy
... no tools ... no headaches. Simply connect the hardware, apply power, and perform the simple software
configuration for your Modem and you are on the Internet.
This Modem is capable of data rates hundreds of times faster than a traditional analog modem. But unlike analog
modems, Westell’s Modem allows you to use the same phone line for simultaneous voice/fax communications and
high-speed Internet access, eliminating the need for dedicated phone lines for voice and data needs.
2. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (MODELS 6000, 6100, 6110)
Never install any telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.
Never touch non-insulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the
network interface.
Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
WARNING
Risk of electric shock. Voltages up to 140 Vdc (with reference to
ground) may be present on telecommunications circuits.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15
of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy, and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment OFF and ON, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver.
Connect the equipment to a different circuit from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
PART 68 - COMPLIANCE REGISTRATION
This equipment (Models 6000, 6100, 6110) complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by
the ACTA. A label on the bottom of this equipment contains, among other information, the Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN) and the product identifier. For products approved after July 23, 2001 the product identifier is in the
format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g. 03 is a REN
of 0.3). The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone line. For earlier
products, the REN is separately shown on the label. If requested, this number must be provided to the telephone
company.
Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most,
but no all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be
connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company.
This equipment is designated to connect to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible modular
jack that is Part 68 compliant. An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with the equipment.
See the Installation Information section of this User Guide for details.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply with the
applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug
is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See
installation instruction for details.
If this terminal equipment (Models 6000, 6100, 6110) causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company
may request you to disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved. The telephone company will notify you
in advance if temporary discontinuance of service is required. If advance notification is not practical, the telephone
company will notify you as soon as possible. You will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if
you believe such action is necessary.

If ENABLED, this option allows PPP traffic to be bridged to the WAN. This feature
allows you to use a PPPoE shim on the host computer to connect to the Internet
Service Provider, by bypassing the Router’s capability to do this.
NOTE: The values for IP Address, Gateway, DNS Primary, and DNS Secondary are all “Override of the value
obtained from the PPP connection,” They default to “0.0.0.0,” in which case the override is ignored. Westell

VC 1 Bridge Settings
Bridge = A bridge is a layer 2 device that connects two segments of the same LAN that use the
same protocol such as Ethernet. The modem does not have a WAN IP address in this mode. The
client PC will typically get an IP address form a DHCP server in the network or it can be assigned
statically.
Routed Bridge = Routed Bridged Encapsulation (RBE) is the process by which a bridged segment
is terminated on a routed interface. Specifically, the router is routing on an IEEE 802.3 or
Ethernet header carried over RFC 1483 bridged ATM. RBE was developed to address the known
RFC1483 bridging issues, including broadcast storms and security. The modem will get a WAN
IP address through DHCP or can be assigned statically. NAT will use the global address assigned
to the modem.
Proxy Bridge = Proxy Bridge is the process in which the modem acts as a proxy ARP agent for a
local public subnet. The modem will be assigned an IP address from within that public subnet.
The modem will direct all traffic to a gateway, which is configured statically. The gateway
address must not reside within the modems assigned public subnet. All traffic will be sent via the
gateway MAC address. The LAN may also have a private NAT'ed network. NAT will use the
global address assigned to the modem.
If you select Routed Bridge, the following screen will be displayed. Click on set VC to save your VC settings.

Diagnostics Help
This screen provides tools for diagnosing PPP connection problems. Some tests depend on the Router status and the
capabilities exercised by previous tests, which may prevent other types of testing.
Beginning of Diagnostics Help screens
DSL
The Router status checks the Router connection. The following is a list of the possible responses:
Up
Down
DSL
The Router is operating correctly and has obtained synchronization with the
opposing modem.
Explanation: The Router is operating correctly, but has not synchronized with
the opposing DSLAM.
Solution: First, check to be sure that the cable connecting your Router to the
ADSL wall jack is properly connected at both ends. If the cable is properly
connected and the Router does not synchronize, try another phone cable. Next,
wait for the Router to train. It can sometimes take as long as two minutes for the
Router to train. If it still has not come into synchronization, power cycle the
Router. If you have tried the approach above and the Router still does not
synchronize, contact your service provider.
PPPoE
The PPPoE status indicates if a PPPoE session is established (i.e., if the PPPoE Discovery procedure has
completed). The following is a list of the possible responses:
Session up
no session
initiating session
Session halted
passed
Session failure
030-300361 Rev. A
PPPoE
A valid PPPoE session has been detected.
Currently there is no active PPPoE session. A PPP session must be connected
from the homepage screen.
The connection process for a PPPoE session has been initialized. It can
sometimes take a few seconds for the PPPoE Discovery procedure to complete.
Wait 10-15 seconds and try again. If the PPPoE Discovery still cannot complete,
there may be a configuration issue with your service provider's equipment.
Verify your VPI/VCI settings (on the LAN Advanced page) and contact your
ISP provider.
A successful PPPoE session was halted. A PPP session must be connected from
the homepage screen.
A valid PPPoE session was established.
A PPPoE session could not be made. There may be a configuration issue with
your service provider's equipment. Verify your VPI/VCI settings (on the LAN
Advanced page) and contact your provider.

following is a list of the possible responses:
Connection up

PPP
The Router has established a PPP connection.
There is no PPP connection. A PPP session must be connected from the
homepage screen.
The PPP connection process has been initialized.
A successful PPP connection was halted. Solution: A PPP session must be
connected from the homepage screen.
Explanation: A PPP connection could not be made because of a PPPoE session
failure.
The username or password is incorrect. Verify that the username and password
your Service Provider issued are entered correctly.
Try re-establishing the session (from the home page). If this doesn't help, there
may be a configuration issue or other failure with your provider's equipment.
Contact your service provider.
Self Test
The Self Test performs an integrity check of certain internal components of the Router. The following is a list of the
possible responses:
Success
Flash Corrupt
Self Test
The Router is operating correctly.
Explanation: The self-test process has detected a problem with internal flash
memory.
Solution: Restart the Router. If the error persists, contact your service provider.
PING ISPs' Router
The IP remote router test performs an IP network check (i.e., an IP Ping) of the Service Provider's Router. This test
verifies that the Router can exchange IP traffic with an entity on the other side of the DSL line. The following is a
list of the possible responses:
Success
No Response
could not test
030-300361 Rev. A
PING ISP’s Router
The Router has detected an IP remote router connection.
Explanation: This message will occur when an IP remote Router does not
answer the IP Ping.
Solution: This test fails when the provider's Router does not give its IP address
to the Router during session establishment. Try Pinging another host, using the
Ping test near the bottom of the Diagnostic screen. If you are able to Ping any
host, or even if you are able to find an IP address for a given host name (try
"www.yahoo.com"), then the failure of the "IP Remote Router" test is moot,
because the success of the Ping demonstrates that you are getting IP traffic
across the DSL line. If the separate Ping fails as well, contact your service
provider.
Explanation: Test could not be executed because of Router status.

box. The following is a list of the possible responses:
Success
No Response
Host not found
No data, enter host name
could not test
DNS
The Router has successfully obtained the resolved address. The IP address is
shown below the host name input box
Explanation: The Router has failed to successfully obtain the resolved address.
Solution: Determine the IP addresses of your DNS servers (from the home page,
click "Edit" and then "Advanced"), and then use the Ping test near the bottom of
the Diagnostic screen to try to Ping those addresses. This may provide useful
information when you contact your service provider and speak with Technical
Support.
Explanation: The DNS Server was unable to find an address for the given host
name.
Solution: That host may no longer be available on the Internet. Try entering a
different host name.
Explanation: There must be a host name entered in the input box.
Explanation: Test could not be executed because of Router status.
PING
Select PING to check IP continuity to a remote computer either within or beyond the Service Providers network.
Enter either the IP address or the hostname of the remote host computer into the input box to the right of the Test
button. If you Ping by name, DNS will be used to look up the appropriate IP address for that name.
The following is a list of the possible responses:
Success
No Response
No name or address to
PING
could not test
PING
The Remote Host Computer was detected.
Explanation: This message will occur when there was no response to the Ping
from the remote computer.
Solution: Bear in mind that many hosts on the Internet are configured for
security reasons to not respond to IP Ping messages. If you get a success from
the DNS test using the same host name, chances are good that your connection
is fine, whether you can Ping the named host or not.
Explanation: There must be a host name or IP address entered in the input box
in order for the Router to Ping.
Explanation: Test could not be executed because of Router status.

applications are enabled to talk through the Router. This selection specifies
which service profile is used when the Router is using this connection.
These radio buttons specify how this connection profile is used. A manual
setting requires that this connection must be manually established through the
“homepage” connection button. When this is set to auto, the Router will monitor
the network traffic and determine when a connection needs to be made. The
connection process will happen automatically the “Always ON” selection causes
the Router to aggressively establish a connection with your ISP. Whenever the
Router detects that the connection to your ISP is down, it will try to re-establish
that connection.
Selecting this option will enable the disconnect timeout. If this option is enabled
the Router will monitor the ISP connection for activity. If there is no activity for
the timeout period, the Router will disconnect from the ISP.
This screen is an advanced screen. Modifying parameters identified on this

Firewall Settings
This screen is an advanced configuration screen. It allows you to set the level of security you wish to have on your
local network. All security levels except “None” protect against known Internet attacks and devices that attempt to
gain remote access to your Router. The following settings are displayed.
High
Medium
Low
Custom
Firewall Settings
This security level only allows basic Internet functionality. Only Mail, News,
Web, FTP, and IPSEC are allowed. No other traffic is allowed. Another
restriction of high security is that it can’t be modified by NAT configuration
options. With High security, you are guaranteed to only pass the previously
mentioned traffic.
This security level only allows basic Internet functionality by default. Like High
security, Medium security, allows customization through NAT configuration, so
you can enable the traffic that you want to pass.
The low security setting will allow all traffic except for known attacks. With
low security, your Router is visible by other computers on the Internet.
Custom is a very advanced configuration option that allows you to edit the
firewall configuration directly. Only the most expert users should try this.

Public LAN
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an Internet standard that
allows the ADSL router to automatically assign IP addresses to devices
connected on the LAN network. It is advised that this is enabled for Private
LAN.
This setting enables the Public interface. This feature allows a global subnet to
exist behind your modem.
This controls the IP address that the ADSL router uses for local
communication.
This setting specifies the subnet mask to use to determine if an IP address
belongs to your local network.
This setting specifies the start of the IP address pool that the modem uses to
assign IP addresses to local devices.
This setting specifies the end address of the IP address pool used for automatic
configuration of local devices.

Trace
The Trace feature allows you to perform an IP trace route to a remote computer either within or beyond the Internet
service provider’s network. Enter either the IP address or the hostname of the remote host computer into the input
box to the right of the Trace button. If you trace by name, DNS will be used to look up the appropriate IP address for
that name.
Success
Failure
Trace
Trace will display its progress in the text box. Trace will show three round trip
times and the DNS name (if available) of each intermediate router.
Trace will display “*” when it does not receive a response or cannot determine
the DNS name of an intermediate router. This is not necessarily an error, as
some routers are configured to ignore trace route packets or do not have DNS
name.
Turbo
Turbo
Turbo TCP is a sophisticated network traffic prioritization and queuing method that dramatically improves
the performance of downstream TCP/FTP/HTTP transfers under heavy upstream bandwidth utilization
conditions.
This feature first assigns a high priority to TCP signaling packets in the upstream direction, then places the
packet in one of several transmit queues based on this priority.
Packets of unspecified priority, like TCP or UDP data, are assigned a low priority and placed in a low priority
queue.
The packets in the high priority queues are then transmitted before packets in the lower priority queues
minimizing any transmit delays.
Minimizing the transmit delay of the TCP messages upstream enables the server to send the TCP data
downstream faster, resulting in a substantial throughput gain.
