Want to configure Westell 327w wireless rtr

Specs: Windows 7
I have a Westell 7500 feeding my home wireless network. I have an older Westell 327w wireless router that I want to reconfigure so that I dont have to pull an ethernet cable, and cut holes. the ww-drt firmware is not compatible with the 327w, so that won't work. Is there ANY way to change the 327w into a wireless switch? PLEASE HELP!

The 327W IS a wired/wireless combination modem. You don't need an additional wireless router. All you need to do is connect your DSL line to the 327, physically connect a computer to the modem, access the router via IE (the IP is probably and configure your wireless network. You can then remove the wired connection and use only the wireless if you wish.

Or, if the wireless network is already configured, all you need to do is select the wireless network from the list of available networks on your PC/laptop, etc, and connect.

The new location I need is 2 floors above the 7500 router. I need to connect my satellite TV receiver to the network, and I'd like to do so w/out pulling another ethernet line. Was hoping the 327w could be set up to connect to the network wirelessly, then I could hook up the receiver to the 327w.
