The Nintendo Wii site states that DSL users should be aware that many modems are not compatible with their Lan adapter. However, their tech support does not have a list of compatible ones. Can anyone tell me, so that I will not be forced to purchase a new wireless router?

Re: is 4100 compatible with Nintendo Wii Lan Adapter?
I'm sure they meant that the modem would need to support bridge mode and only if your connecting the Wii directly to the modem. If you are connecting the Wii to a current router, then there should be no problem, other than configuring the router for the new modem.

In all there should be lan led, dsl led, power led and internet led, So if dsl and power led is glowing and others not?? than check the lan cable and even check the lan card of ur pc is it enabled or drivers are properly installed and same way try to check the modem configuration??
Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future... The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations. 1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..
So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks.... Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
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.

Look at the log on your 4100. Select "keep log on restart". Look for log outs and about 4 steps down Log ins (mine were about 20 seconds apart). See if your modem reset (watch your lights) coincides with taking your phone off hook. Take phone off hook for about 20 seconds until you loose dial tone (mine would reset at this point about 50% of the time and show several log off-on in the log. My phone company tech (SBC/AT&T) said that there engineering department had them install some line equipment at drop site that caused this problem. If you can do something to force the reset, then you'll get some action by your telco. Otherwise the testing they do will not show a problem. If this does not work, contact your state PUC. Your phone company will be more cooperative when they are contacted by the PUC.
re 6520 seimens wireless modem
i have DSL internet connection
when the phone call dies i hang up the phone and call again for the same amount of time 3mins and 18 secs
i am using the seimens modem/router with the voip adapter connected via ethernet cable
i have updated the seimens modem/router with the latest firmware from the telstra site E752-AF5-106-71-a056-v1s
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
