Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge
The power light is on, it is connected thru USB and the usb light is on, the adsl light is on (i dont use ethernet) . But the activit light will not come on and it wont let me search the net... whats going on?
SOURCE: Cant connect to "SOUL" adsl
First, just so you know, some devices (modems) just will not work on a provider's (ISP) network.. did you call your Internet Provider and ask it this device is compatible?
When you updated the firmware, did you receive any messages about failures? any messages at all?

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.

normally since it has usb and ethernet in one modem, it will divide the bandwith of your current speed.. i would suggest for you to use router so u can assign ip in both computers
