Question about Siemens SpeedStream 5260 ADSL LAN Modem p/n 060-5260-003 (SPEEDSTREAM5260)

Modem cold to touch

If I remember right my modem used to be warm to the touch when I put my hand on the top of the modem to push the off button in back. Now it's no longer warm. Is this possible? I am experiencing frequent disconnects with automatic reconnects. It is an old speedstream. Maybe model 5360.
Thanks

Hey hi,



frequent disconnectes suggest tat u might have an intermittent sync prob that might be due to,

1 )filter problem(filter is a small box ,it is also called as splitter that splits ur broad band connectivity and telephone line)  
so try isolating the filter that isz
connect the cable runnin at the back of ur modem directly into ur wall jack.
this will probably solve the problem

2)next reason is , it might be a line issue pls cal ur broad band help desk they ll sort it out 

ur modems temperature has nothing to do with this.
try this n let me know .

Pushed the stand by button but that didnt help me grt the online to work


Make sure that all of you connections on your modem are plugged in (you should see 4 green lights and one blinking yellow/amber light). If you only have one amber light, press the standby button again. If the modem still is not working, check to make sure that the coaxial cable from the wall is tightly (hand tight) screwed into both the wall and the back of the modem, unplug the power cord and wait about 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Give the modem time to boot up (about 2 minutes usally) and try to connect to the internet again.

Reset button was hit but cannot log in with admin and motorola locked out and cannot get lap top to connect


It seems I didn't push the button long enough or I pushed it and then pulled the power cable. That got me into some weird condition where internet would work but was not able to login to the router.

The right way:
- Press and hold the reset button until the devices lights start to shutoff
- Wait
- Login with the defaults: admin/Motorola

Internet on-off key: how to use it ? May it be


hi, rmoriconi
pay no attention to people that tells you that that switch turns your wireless on and off..you do not have a wireless modem

all it does is block your incoming and outgoing internet service, its a security feature and thats it

(your modem is not wireless, if it is, its the first wireless modem i have ever seen)...

Actiontec Modem Won't Work!


take a wire and carefully touch it to the two attachment points of the copper ring on the left side while it is plugged in. I first froze my system for 15 min then thawed out and touched the wire as instructed and all works fine.

To open the box remove the clear soft contacts on the bottom, should be four. Using a small philips remove them and pull the box in two. Then fix according.

Hope this helps

How to connect to the internet with a PSP


To connect your modem to a wirless router. Then make sure when you set up the wireless router that you remember the settings (mainly the password) and what kind of security you set, WAP, WEP AES or TKTP. Also make sure the wirless connector is enabled on your PSP (basically a switch on top of your hand held system).

4100SS Power Button fails


I also had this problem with the 4100. This is what I did as a "Lo-Tech" fix. If you push in your power button and hold it in, and your modem powers on, then this should work for you. First unplug all cords. Turn the modem over and remove the small phillips screw from the bottom. Next, gently pry apart the two halves of the case. There are 4 tabs total. I found working back to front the best way. After removing the top half, gently pull the circuit board up and out. Now for the magic. Get yourself a twist-tie. Push the button all the way in, and wrap the twist tie around the whole button. Twist it down tight, and put everything back together. You should be good to go. If this doesn't work for you, or holding in the power button doesn't power up your modem, you could try just blobbing some solder over the three pins on the bottom of the board, under the switch. This should bypass the switch completely. Either way, you can cycle your power on and off with the cord instead of the button. Hope this helps!

How do i set up a wpa or wep on my modem


1.) Well first, you must open your web browser up.
2.) Then you would type in the address bar: 192.168.0.1 (being the default ip address for this modem)
3.) If you haven't changed it already, the username is <blank>, and the password is, "admin".
4.) Once logged on, you would go to the far top right, where it says: "Wireless".
5.) Then, on the column on the left hand side (about mid-page) you can see five different tabs, click on the one thats says: "Privacy".
6.) Now, this is where you have to decide what kind of Security you would want(either a 64-bit or a 128-bit encryption key) NOTE: having 128-bit encryption key will be a long password.
7.) Then, in the WEP Passphrase, you would type in something that you would remember, it could be anything, just as long as you can remember it.
8.) Then click the "Generate WEP Keys" button right next to it.
9.) Now, on the Default Key right under it, it gives you choice of 1-4. This means which channel would you like to connect though. So here is an example, if you picked a128-bit encryption kep with a default key of 3, then you would look at the corresponding chart at the bottom of the page. And at the row that says "Key 3" in the "128-Bit" box, then that would be your password for other devices to connect to this modem.
10.) And when you have saved you password somewhere, click "Apply", and you done!
