Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge
Windstream is the ISP.
I have ADSL telephone line connection coming into the Modem, Modem then connects to Router ( Belkin F5D7321-4 Wireless G plus ) then router is wired to my two pc's.
I can set a static windows IP, but with windstreams PPOE connection, the adsl modem/router (4200 speedstream) I always get an Internal IP (static IP) and an External IP which is what is put out by the Speedstream 4200.
1. Can I get the Modem to Be a signal Converter only, not generate its own IP.
2. How and what steps do i need to follow to bridge modem to router if needed and what needs to be done prior to putting modem in bridge mode. Last i tried to bridge I could not connect to internet once modem was bridged. Please let me know what to do.
The Bottom line is I want to Host and Join Games via Gamespy Arcade, which with the network as is I can not do.
Thanks For Looking deep into teh equipment and Finding a knowledgable fix ahead of time.
I am assuming here with the way you have it set up your getting an internet connection.
what you saying i understsand mostly so i'll see if i can help you
first of all you have speedstreem modem that connects to you isp, this is assign your internet address from the isp if you paid for a static IP it would be in here, if not it's assiged by a dhcp from your isp company so if you if turn it off or have a power loss for anymore than 5-15min your ip changes.
now your modem then connects into your belkin router this as well as your modem it's prob set up as dhcp so it wants to issue each computer with an internal address of 192.168.0.X the reason for this is so it knows where to send the incomming information to what computer.
no matter what computer your using the address that goes over the internet will be the one assigned to modem from internet provider so if this need to be static IP to run your game server you will have contact your internet provider for an address.
but you may be confussing the issue a little, my suggestion to you would be:
1. go to your connections on each computer
2. right click on the lan connection choose properties
3. go to internet protocol (TCP/IP) then click properties
4. then click on obtain ip automatically and obtain dns automatically
this will remove the static windows address you may have put in.
try this and see if you can get you game or game server will work.
btw you may have to reboot your computers after this to get be sure to get the new address.
