Hi. I am a new member and have a quick question. I had a westell wire speed dsl modem for verizon hooked up to a linksys broadband router and everything worked perfectly until I had a lightning strike near my home which fried the modem. My dad gave me a westel model 327w modem and router combo unit for verizon and works perfectly provided i have the linksys router hooked up also. When I try to hook up the new modem without the linksys router i have problems. Can anyone help me out?
