Verizon Westell 7500

Hi Group!
Newbie here. HNY to you as well!

I tried searching for this but wasn't sure what to actually search for. Way back when... I had Verizon for my DSL service. I accidentally spilled chocolate milk on my Verizon wireless router, and was forced to purchase a new one from Verizon. I now no longer have Verizon but was able to keep the router. I have Time Warner cable now. I'd like to use this Verizon wireless router with my TW internet service now. I'm getting an 192 address from the wireless but can't seem to get anywhere with it. Does anyone know if this is even possible? Do i need to configure/remove something on the router to make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There's a related FAQ:
»Westell Equipment Forum FAQ »Guide to Using 327w as a router for Comcast

If that doesn't work, then it might not be possible. Some of the newer firmware removed support for that.

The directions are for the gui that looks like what's linked
red and black gui

There is a blueish and white gui it's slightly different

I'd love to wipe that Verizon gui and bring it to the Westell one. Is there a way to do that?
