Westell Model 7500, does it have wireless capability?

Message 1 of 2 (6,197 Views)

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.

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).
