I recently installed an external hard drive. For some reason that seems to have erased the Westell 6100 modem set up/ drivers. I tried re-installing using the Verizon cd, but when I click account set up I get a message that I do not have administrative privileges. I checked and I am in fact still the administrator. Any thoughts on how to fix or why installing the back up drive would do this? I know my DSL connection is still good because wifi is working. This is on a MAC computer. I called Verizon which was a joke.
By what you said, it sounds like you are using some sort of Wireless NAT router.
If you are using a Wireless NAT router to handle the public IP like I suspect, you do not need to install any drivers for that Westell 6100 modem.
