Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge

1 Answer

DSL with Vista.

I just bought a new HP a6550f from Circuit City. It has Vista Premium SP1. For a few days, the my internet was up. About 2 days later, it completely shut down on me. The computer is hooked up to a Netgear WNR834B Wireless-N Router which is wired to the Siemens 4200 modem.

I called Windstream and was on for about an hour with one of their techies. I myself am pretty technologically up to speed, I'm working in the Cisco Academy right now. Between me, the tech guy at Windstream, and one of my friends, we couldn't figure it out.

I can ping my router and my modem, yet I can't access either through IE7.

The twist? I kept my old XP machine. I plugged everything in, and it worked fine. I can access the internet, play my games. Anything I really feel like.

The computer's onboard ethernet controller is fine because it was working just the other day, let alone the fact that I can still ping the router and such.

They're sending me a new modem, but I'm kind of curious if it's necessary at all. I'm really beginning to think it's just Vista (considering it's the 64 bit version).

Of all the backwards things. It turns out it was just a bad cable going from my PC to the router. >.>

Connect to router


There are plenty of good routers to pick from, but the choice you make depends on more than your DSL modem and computer. It depends on your wireless network needs.
What kind of structure are you working in?
How many floors do you need coverage on?
Do you plan to play any multiplayer online games?
Do you plan to stream video or audio media on your network?
Do you need to setup access to your network from the internet?
How important is your network's security?

All of these factors are key in deciding the best solution.

Cheap is never the best deciding factor. The average cost for a decent reliable router will range in price from $50 to $150 depending on features.

D-link DI-604 installing


The 192.168.0.1 was probably changed when it was first set up. To return it to default settings take a paper clip and insert it in the reset hole in the back of the router.

Give it a few moments to reboot and the 192.168.0.1 address should work.

Can't get on internet!!


Usually you can keep the same modem. Who were your old and new providers? You should be able to go the the new providers website and get all the necessary settings to configure your modem to work on their service.

Speedstream 4200 dsl modem


If you will have the new modem and the same problem will occur, then you can say that it could be a fault with the phoneline or if it is with the old modem.

I hate my server and their little black box toooooo!


If all of the lights go out or the DSL light stars blinking with no other light on then that usually indicates the modem lost sync. That is usually caused by noise on the DSL line. If the DSL line and phone line are on the same cables then you should have filters that need to be installed on every device connected to the phone lines except for the DSL modem. If that has already been done then you would need to contact you service provider as the issue is most likely going to be a problem with the phone lines in your house or their lines outside your house. Your ISP will be able to test your DSL line to get an idea of where the problem is. It is also possible that this is an issue with your modem and it needs to be replaced. Ig you are leasing the modem then once again you will need to speak with your ISP about it. If you bought the modem then you would need to contact Seimens about it if the modem is the problem.

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. http://www.fltg.net/Software/5667B%20Quick%20Start%20Guide.pdf 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. http://www.efficient.com/ http://subscriber.communications.siemens.com/broadband_family_frame.htm
