jcapell,

I don't know about that model but have you tried the common default.  First, leave everything blank.  Next, try admin for name and password.  Finally try leaving the name blank and admin for the password.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

You must take the router out of the path between a PC and the modem to get to change the modem to bridged mode.
Once you set the modem to bridged mode, then you can put your router back into the mix between your modem and PC(s).

There is absolutely no login or password required to get to my Westell 6100 modem via the http address I have supplied above.  The Westell 6100, beyond a modem, has router capabilities where you can set it up to forward ports and the like just as you would in a dedicated router.
