To check your Computer(Private/Local) IP address:-Use the following command prompt start->run->cmd->ipconfig/all
And to check your Internet(Public/Network) IP address:- use the site .
And to change your Ip address, check your IP provided by Internet Service Provider(ISP) is static (or) dynamic. If you have dynamic IP, then change your IP address by following the steps:-
1)Clear all cookies and cache file from your browser.
2)Go to Start->Run->Cmd->Press Enter..
Type in "ipconfig/release" for Current IP address and then type "ipconfig/renew" for New IP address.
3)Either follow step 2 or Simply restart or unplug your modem/router .
If you have Static Ip address, Contact your service provider and request a IP Change.

What is thje ip address for the speedstream 5100 dsl modem ,i need to make changes to the settings does not work

You actually were fairly close on your answer to what is actually needed.
I use
Almost 100% of the time, this is the access address for the router that a computer is hooked up to.

Now, you will need to know the username and password, and that I can't help you with as I am not the one that set it up.
However, is it is still on the factory settings, and the username and password haven't been changed from the factory setting, then I can tell you what to type into for those spaces.

The factory settings are:for username : admin
:for password :
leave the password space blank.
Then, you can go and configure it any way that you wish.
Just remember to write the new ones down, that way if you need to do it again, you won't have to hunt for ways to acces the router again.
Also, here is a link for the manual for your router.
It is in pdf form, so you can either view it online, or you can download it and view it while offline.

I hope this helps you out, I know dealing with routers and modems can be a frustrating adventure.

Good luck to you, and have a good day!

Wireless connection goes of then will not connect

I get that you was connect to the internet by wireless connection .
so in you connect with access point connected directly to dsl modem so try to restart the access point and try to connect again ...and reset the wireless in your device... may be it works .

I think this problem occur cause access point or DHCP server cant give your device new IP address..
so you must clean the DHCP leased addresses by restart the access point or enter to server and do that from DHCP .

else you can try to assign static ip address has the same network id with router ..
for example : if router ip is so you must assign ip address like :
192.168.1.x while x number between 2 and 254
hope that helps you

I'm using an SB5101 and trying to use a new wireless router with this modem, but the set up is saying I have a static IP address... where can I find that on my computer whil I'm using my old router? thanks

I have one, after finding out how reliable and well-made they are. However, they can be picky during setup, especially since they have a rare 'config IP' address (the number you type into your internet browser's address bar to change the modem's settings). Click here >>
See this link for more info.

I can't connect my xbox. I have determined that I need to change some setting in the modem configuration page, But I don't understand networking language and so I have no idea what I need to do or change...

For that you need to enable DHCP on router then it will give ip to your xbox. you can also assign ip address to xbox with that range of your network. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to change usb to ethernet interface. When I try to do it is failing to communicate with the modem

Whenever you swap the Ethernet and USB connections, it will fail to work as the modem is still configured with your computers IP address on the port you are changing FROM. Since the computer has not used the Ethernet port after being changed from the USB port, the modem has no IP assigned.

The solution is simple and must be done ANY time ports are changed, either ones on the modem, or if you were to change Ethernet ports on you computer.

Swap your connections, then reset the modem by unplugging it's power cord on the back for at least 10 seconds, then plug in.

This forces the modem to reconfigure it's ports, and to re-issue the IP address to your computer on the new port.

Since the modem only configures a port when the computer is plugged into it as it starts up, the other one is left in an unusable state.

The same equally applies if you were to add a second computer using the second modem port. You would also need to reboot the modem. Note that using both ports on the modem, each of which gets a separate IP from the ISP, is usually disabled by your cable company as you normally have to pay extra for multiple IP addresses. Sometimes the ISP overlooks this and you can get away with a free second IP address as I did with this same modem... until they wised up! Now I can use either port, but not both together. Only one get's an IP address.
