4200 speedstream modem problem

I just bought a new 4200 modem to replace one that died. I need to use it as a modem (have separate wireless router). I've installed throught ethernet and I get message saying Local Area is connected but I can't get on the internet or access email. Tried hooking up directly (by-passing router)changing cables, even tried old computer but I still can't get connected. Do I have to go into the modem's setup to change some settings? The fact that both old and new computer wouldn't connect tells me it must be the modem. (note: Problem initially started with just email on old modem, but when I changed virus programs, it went away. Then old modem died completely,5 years old, no lights at all. Problems might be un-related just co-incidence? All this within 2 days of initial problem) Running Windows XP, Internet Explorer 6 and Microsoft Outlook for Mail.

Re: 4200 speedstream modem problem

I guess you probably aint set-up a wireless router before, what you need to do is get it connected up so you revieve local area is connected then, load internet explorer you will recieve a message like page not displayed. where you usually type in for example type in the number thats on the bottom of the router ie it looks somthing like this for example. a menu will then appear, fill in your broadband username details etc and you should be up and going, if you have problems feel free to email me,, All the best John

Cannot locate modem access code for my 4200 and i cannot set it up on mypc without the code

Hello anp1922,

I haven't used a Siemens SpeedStream Modem for some time now. My son replaced the modem we received from our internet provider when we first subscribed. We now use a NetGear Wireless Router. On the NetGear's, there's usually information that explains how to log in to the router such as a User Name and a Password.

Now on your Siemens SpeedStream Modem, it may not exactly be the same. I can't remember if the Siemens had the same setup and I'm sure you would have checked already by now. My guess is that you probably would need the software that came with the modem in the first place. A lot of times your internet provider, especially if it's DSL, will provide you with the router. I would call them and ask them for assistance. They can usually help you best. If you bought the IP Router yourself, then they won't help you and you're best to call the manufacturer. Hopefully Siemens doesn't ask you to pay for their service. You most likely will speak with someone in India who is in training.

I know I haven't completely answered your question but I am willing to help you out if you desire. GOOD LUCK.

How do I configure for wireless?

Siemens Speedstream 4100 is just a modem, if you want to connect to the internet wireless you will need to set up your speedstream modem with a wireless router.
It can work with almost all the wireless routers available in the market, but I would recommend a Linksys wireless router.

I have a siemens 4200 adsl modem i had a net gear modem before and that was not working with wireless internet and now this modem wont let me connect wireless either only with the ethernet cabel. help!

Hello Mate,
the siemens speedstream 4200 is a DSL modem/Router which doesn't have wireless connection. So even tough if you have a computer equiped with a wireless adapter, you will not be able to connect wirelessly because the siemens 4200 doesn't act as wireless access point.
You may need next time to check first if the modem/router to buy support wireless (wifi g or n) and make sure that it's not only a modem, it should be also a router.
i attached here some references for you from the top brands:
1. Linksys DSL modem/Router with wireless N:
2. Linksys DSL modem/Router with Wireless G:
You can find other brands as Dlink, Netgear ...
Best Regards,

I just bought a SpeedStream 4100 modem

if you brought the wireless new from a vendor. you don't need to configure it. unless you want to.
but if you brought a used one (in you case). you have to configure it. You need to get inside (software wise) of the modem. to do that you need login name and password to start with. if you don't have it, please call or e-mail the guy you brought the modem from.
then you have to configure the security for the wireless, unless you want everyone under sun to access your modem via wireless.
search on the web, you should come away with a user manual for the unit.

Wireless networking

It has a slot for a wireless card, but there's no way to tell whether your provider supplies it with the card. Call tech support and ask them. If it's not wireless, either connect your laptop with CAT5 cable, or get a wireless access point (or a wireless router and emasculate it - instructions at The router will probably be cheaper and easier to find (Linksys WRT54-type routers are good and they're cheap), and emasculation doesn't require any modification of the router, just a modification in how you use it.

Speedstream 4200 and Linksys WRT54G router

there are several types of patch cables, but basically there are 2 general types: one for servers (they keep the websites) and for computers.
the servers need to communicate with each other in order to be in sync. so some cables are switched in one end.
The computers just want to receive and send data; it does not care about sync.

I cannt play wolrd of warcraft online but i go and check my and things like that should be close enough to get you started (they don't have pictures for the 4200). Check the link for the downloader too - you'll need those ports forwarded if you want to download upgrades. (And you probably can't get both the desktop and the laptop playing at the same time - a port can only be forwarded to one computer at a time.)

Speedstream 4200 setup

I have just set up 4200 with dsl - you may find that you need to reset modem before you can configure. I was told that you need either a grey or yellow cable from your laptop to the modem. I use to access modem. The 4200 I have was from a bigpond a/c - originally configured accordingly.
