all right, did the updates i could fix. the more info about the driver appears below:

Westell Router Driver

More Information
An interoperability issue has been identified between the Westell DSL modem/router model A90-327W15-06, software version 03.00.63A, and all Dell wireless cards. The typical symptom is that the network name or SSID of the Westell modem/router is seen, but a connection cannot be established. Additionally, when a connection attempt is made, the network name or SSID may disappear.

This problem is corrected by downloading a software version upgrade from Verizon.

What Should I Do?
Determine the model number and software version of the Westell modem/router.
