Try a hard reset with the button on the back, do not connect to the Westell, and try again. Failing that, try installing the CD which sets it up so you can connect the first time using http://www.routerlogin.net
There is also a Netgear logon troubleshooting guide:

Hi,
Connect the netgear directly to your computer & configure your LAN connection on the computer manually with same subnet as the netgear
192.168.1.x you have to setup the IP (any IP within the range of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254) then subnet 255.255.255.0 & default gateway
192.168.1.1
Try configuring the other subnet 192.168.0.x as well if it does not work with first one
It looks like DHCP was not enabled on the router!

Thanks
Mo
