If you happen to purchase a modem from a friend, online, or received a modem for another ISP, don't worry there's still hope!

WARNING!! This should be for advanced users only. This may cause serious problems to your dsl modem if the necessary precautions are not taken. Again, only do this if you find out your modem is unable to sync on your line.

For the Westell Wirespeed:

The following items are found: VPI and VCI Table.
If you do not know your VPI/VCI contact your local telco. They will tell you; but don't disclose what ISP you use. Otherwise, try these common settings from across the globe:

UK, BellSouth835
Denmark, Orang835
France, Wanado035
Singapore Pacificnet0100

Click EDIT VCI or EDIT VPI and click "enable" and then OK.
Click apply again.

  • What do you change it to? That important part seems to be missing. :-) I've read that it is supposed to be a VPI/VCI of 0/38 for AOL DSL.
