Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

SS4100 modem moved to another computer, Internet LED light not on

My brother had the SS4100 modem on his computer and it was given to me to use on my computer since he left. I've connected it directly to the computer (instead of on the router) to check for connection. All of the LED lights come on except for the internet LED. I can't even get onto the ip address 192.168.0.1. I've tried multiple things and even tried it on my laptop and still nothing... can someone help me!

    I found out what to do. it seemed to work after I tried frcs68's solution and clicking on "set up a home or small office network" under My Network Places. Then I was able to at least access the IPS... but then the PPPoe and authentication failed, so I had to log in and it finally gave me access to the internet. As for the router I had to completely reset it to it's default settings (since it was setup for MAC filtering) luckily the back of the router had the username and password.

Turn off the PC and the modem. connected the modem to your IPS (Internet Provider). using a ethernet cable in the port marked WAN. connected another CAT5 cable from any of LAN port to your PC. turn on the modem first then your PC. waite for the PC to boot up. You should have Internet access. unless you Internet Provider need to configure them modem.(dependend on who is your Internet Privider).

    correction: connect the modem to your ISP via Cable Port. connect a CAT5 cable from WAN to a router WAN port, if you are using a router. of not then just use the LAN port on the modem to your PC.

Hi. Sometimes, you have to contact your internet provider, and they have to send an initialization string to the device in order for it to get internet.
Also, check the settings of your router and make sure it is set to allow internet access, and not just router access. They can be tempermental sometimes.

Internet light is not on


Hi Thanks for your question.
If you are able to access internet when using it you have nothing to worry about. To make sure it's only led restart your modem by disconnecting from mains and waiting about 30 sec. When you connect it back at some point all of led's should be on. If internet one don't come on at any point it's only faulty light and you have nothing to worry about.
Please do not hesitate to ask more questions. Fixya team is hear for you. Thanks

Connected to wireless OK but no internet


You have to reset the modem by holding the reset key from the back side for 5 seconds, and re-configure it by going to 192.168.254.254 and re-configure it from Quick-Start by following all the instruction given by your Wireless Provider, or configure your own in case you are NOT using it for InterNet access

Internet


Well, I understand that the modem is SS4100, which means ther are
5lights on it being, Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet & Activity....
Note:The trouble shooting is done according to the Light Status on the modem.
1. No matter what the proble is, the first step is to Power Cycle the modem to eliminate the static on the modem(to switch it off and back on).
2. If the Power Light is anything other than a solid green, then the modem is fried(except the fact that the adapter is plugged and working).
3. If the Power is green and Ethernet is off, then check for the LAN cable at the back 
of the computer if its connected to the modem.(It turns green if connected properly)
4. If the DSL light is anything other than solid green, then call up the ISP tech's to ask why the intenet is not working.
(make sure the DSL cable is plugged firmly onto the back of the modem and the wall jack)
5. If the Power, Ethernet and the DSL is green and the internet is not, the open up the Modem page(type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar and enter for the modem page), and cross-check for the username and the password. Save the changes and your internet is working!!!
6.  The Activity light usually blinks green and it does't have much to do with the troubleshooting.
The above are the basic troubleshooting steps.
Hope it solves your problem......

Light on my modem


If the internet light is not on then it means
  1. You are not connected to the internet, faulty connection etc
  2. You have no proper drivers for your modem or your current drivers are corrupted
  3. The computer has turned of your modem for reason like conflicts or ill-operation of your modem
I guess you also want to know how to resolve the issue (Cause you only asked why it is not flickering anymore)
  1. Connect the cable or wireless connection for your ASDL securely
  2. Update the driver for your modem and als diagnise the modem
  3. same as 2, goto device manager to update the driver and on properties to diagnise the hardware
