Unable to set up internet connection - option greyed out

When I go to setup an internet connection manually, the option for a "broadband connection requiring a username and password" is greyed out. I just reloaded Windows XP from scratch - did the complete hard drive format. Also, using a Speedstream 5260 ADSL modem.

How to setup a rca thomson digital broadband to a tm router


You have to reboot your modem anytime you connect a new device to it, this is what is great about routers! They act as the reference device to your modem since the modem can only "pair" with 1 mac address at a time, this allows you to connect and disconnect devices to your internet without having to reboot your modem and to also have multiple device use the same internet service at the same time.
Unplug the power to your modem and just follow the directions that came with your router on how to wire it to your modem and set it up. Once you are done plug your modem back into power and you should be up and running.

No CD included for set up


You should be able to download any necessary software (from a friend's internet connection) and complete your install. Most modems do not need a software disc, just need to be setup and most can be setup using your own web browser. Here's a link to download a PDF of the manual for that unit, as well as software and drivers.

Setting up for broadband


Hi,

First, you might want to check with Plusnet the login information and the type of the authentication they have. Secondly, setup your router, login to your router using a web browser. Type 10.1.1.1 in the address bar and press enter key.Login using the default setting username 'admin' and password 'admin'.

Click on Home tab and then on WAN on the left side of the screen.Select PPPoE/PPPoA option.Under Connection Type select 'PPPoE LLC' in the drop-down menu.Enter username and your password.Please check with your provider if not sure again.
If you have connection with static IP address, you do not have to specify the IP settings on the router: the router will be getting the same IP from your ISP every time it connects.Click on Apply. To save the settings into the router's memory go to Tools > [System] > Save and Reboot.Give the router a minute or two to reboot and reconnect.

Lastly, Restart your computer and you should be able to access the Internet.You do not have to run any login client on any of your computers because your router logs to your ISP automatically.

Speedstream 4200 setup


I have just set up 4200 with dsl - you may find that you need to reset modem before you can configure. I was told that you need either a grey or yellow cable from your laptop to the modem. I use 10.0.0.138 to access modem. The 4200 I have was from a bigpond a/c - originally configured accordingly.
Regards,
Richard
