Westell 9100 & new Apple Time Capsule - I have Fios TV & Internet

Message 1 of 7

Hello,

 

What is the best setup to take advantage of the dual frequency wireless feartures (2.4 and 5.0) of the Apple Time Capsule while not shutting off the wireless signal on the Westell as it sends programming info to my DVR's.

 

My priority is to use the Time Capsule as an external back up and I want to take advantage of the wireless back up features. I have seen many posts in this community regarding the ActionTec router but none on the Westell 9100.

 

Thanks for the help!

best bet would be to disable the wireles on the westell and supply your own router with n capable.

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

I am not super techno savvy.

 

How do I go about turning off the Westell's wirelss? Doing so won't mess with the Fios TV programming?

 

I assume I just connect the Time Capsule to the Westell via ethenet LAN to LAN?

well if you connect directly to the westell then there is no need for another router, that is only if you run wireless on the time capsule.

 

To log into the router.
The address to access the router is: 192.168.1.1
The default username is: admin, the default password is either: password or password1.

Click on Wireless to view the wireless settings.

Are you using the Verizon DVR or another vendors such as Tivo ?
