Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

2 Answers

I just bought a SpeedStream 4100 modem

Hello, I am trying to connect the home wireless network to this main computer with 4100 modem SpeedStream. I had a 2wire but it broke yesterday. I cannot afford a new one, so I've bought a used one in Craigslist, the 4100.
The computers at home don't seem to recognize the wireless. What do I do?

Thank you,
Deyanir Helt

Most of the 2wire model are modem router , so there is no need for you to connect ur speedstream modem with ur 2wire .. verify connectivity to the internet using hardwired cx with ur 2wire first before trying to use wireless . ..

If you brought the wireless new from a vendor. you don't need to configure it. unless you want to.
but if you brought a used one (in you case). you have to configure it. You need to get inside (software wise) of the modem. to do that you need login name and password to start with. if you don't have it, please call or e-mail the guy you brought the modem from.
then you have to configure the security for the wireless, unless you want everyone under sun to access your modem via wireless.
search on the web, you should come away with a user manual for the unit.

I have A Vontage phone system using a Vontage model VDV21-VD router.I also have a AT&T internet connection with a Siemens speedStream 4100 Modem.Is it possible to connect a Sony PS3 and internet to my...


As long as the PS3 connects to the TV properly you can do this by creating or accessing a wireless network from the router, that your PS3 will receive the signal from and display on your TV. A gaming console will prompt you for a password to the wireless network you want to associate it with if you try to use any internet features on a game or interactive dvd. Sometimes this can be done on the consoles main menu screen before you attempt to connect through any media.
From a home computer you can view the options of your wireless network, in my case, a windows operating system - by click your start menu, opening control panel, and selecting network and sharing center. Here you can manage your networks and create homegroups or networks.
If there is a password on your router that you can't remember, I have had success in retrieving the number to customer service for the brand of my router - by calling my internet service provider. In your case you would want to contact Vontage if you don't have the password.
Hope this helps.

How do I configure for wireless?


Siemens Speedstream 4100 is just a modem, if you want to connect to the internet wireless you will need to set up your speedstream modem with a wireless router.
It can work with almost all the wireless routers available in the market, but I would recommend a Linksys wireless router.

How can create a wifi connection with my siemiens speedstream 4100 modem


You need to purchase a wireless router, and install it right after the modem.
Your Direct connect PCs would connect via ethernet cable, and wireless cards - wirelessly.

Speedstream 4100 does not work with router


you can't.
when the item name as modem/router. it means the main function is modem with added router function.
you can't connect 2 router/modem together. both need access to the internet and IPS for it function correctly.
however, you can connect 1 modem and one router.
