Will not connect

My speedstream 5667 is not working. when i plug everything in the computer shows that the ethernet cord is not plugged in and it says that there is no connection. i live in an apartment so i do not have a cd. the only thing that i can think of is that i pressed the reset button because our network was down so i was just wondering how i should go about fixing this problem. thank you very much.

Re: Will not connect

First, I would make sure you are using the right type of patch cable to connect to your cable/dsl modem. There are two types: 1) Straight through 2) Cross over The manual for this device says to use #1 when connecting directly to a computer, and #2 when connecting to a hub. If the cable/dsl modem is powered on and you are not receiving a link light on either the cable/dsl modem or your computer, try using a different cable. If this does not work, then you may have a problem with the device itself. At that point, call your Internet Service Provider, as they may be able to provide you with a replacement. If you did not receive this device from an ISP, then you will have to contact the manufacturer directly. Unfortunately, it looks like Efficient Networks was bought by Siemens, so you may have a hard time receiving support from them.

The ethernet light should not blink at all. The first thing to try is a new ethernet cable. If the problem still persists, then you need to check with your internet provider.

Wireless problems

You need ethernet for this. No router I have seen in all my years of networking will accept a USB plug

Yes and No! The 4200 gives you the option to connect via USB or Ethernet. You can only use one or the other to connect. You have two options. The first DOES involve another "gadget". The second does not!

Solution #1

I realize you're not looking to use additional equipment, but a network hub, switch or router will give you what you need. You can pick up a very inexpensive router for under $50 or even better a wireless router for a few bucks more.

I recommend a Linksys Wireless Router (Model - WRT54G) as it is very user friendly and comes ready to use. Just connect the port labeled "Ethernet" to the "WAN" port of the Linksys Wireless Router. Then connect both of your computers to any of the four "LAN" ports.

Solution #2

You can connect the first computer directly to the 4200 via USB and connect the second computer directly to the first computers ethernet port using a Network Crossover cable. Without a router of hub between the two computers, a crossover cable is required to allow them to talk to each other.

Once you have them connected to each other, on the first computer open the network connection properties for your internet connection (will be the one setup during the install of the USB modem) and click "Share This Computers Internet Connection".

Now the first option is surely the most reliable and keeps the traffic separate.

Hope this help!

On THIS page look for the link to file it should be the USB driver you need.

Ensure you virus scan the file prior to unzipping as I cannot verify the file is safe or what you want.

No connection

Did you install the line filter to isolate the dsl side from plain telephone signals? Telephone equipment can interfere with dsl signals if the proper filters arent used. Read this:

Speedstream modem 4200

put the modem in bridge mode and then connect a DSL/cable router to'll have to configure the PPOE if its DSL... Cable is a little easier because there usually is a MAC authientication not username and password...plug dsl/cable router into cable modem...turn both off for about aminute then turn modem on first then router... Be careful most routers with wireless have it enable with no security by default...turn it off or set securty (wirelss that is)
