Westell Model 7500, does it have wireless capability?

I recently got Verizon High Speed DSL which came with the Westell Model 7500 DSL Modem/ Router. I am using a wired connection, but I noticed there is a flashing Wireless light on the top of the modem.


Does this modem have wireless capabiltiy on it's own? I tried to use my laptop to discover a connection and was unable to.


If so, how does one password protect this connection? I do not want my neighbors stealing my bandwidth. I would also like to be able to use the wireless functionality if this modem is indeed wireless capable.


Thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter.

Re: Westell Model 7500, does it have wireless capability?

Yes, it appears to have wireless.


#1 Log-in to the modem combo.


#2 Go look for Wirelesss Settings.


#3 As need be, show a screen shot from the router's screen(s).
