Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi I need help with my modem settings. It is siemens speedstream 4200. I am told in forums I need to open ports to solve my problems.. but cannot successfully do it. PS3 will only give a NAT3 connection (which means there is incorrect connection to router/modem) I am told to open ports (port forwarding?) "bridge" the modem, assign PS3 a static IP address inside home network, place PS3 into DMZ... none of my attempts to do this have worked... but I am trying to learn as I go. Not fun.

    Hey,



    I was reviewing our chat, and found something else that is wrong.



    you need to make sure your TCP and UDP have the same port numbers. Change those, and see what happens. I'll be online in about 2 hours.

Do you have the device hooke up directly to the speadstream 4200? As the Speedstream 4200 is a modem most companies already have this device in bridged mode because it is largely understood that if this device enters a home it will be shared. That being said do you have a router? if so your task will be that much more easier if you are going to purchase a router please ensure that you buy a good one as gaming can be quite intensive and some routers do not do so well when it comes to this..

Depending on your ISP if you place the PS3 in DMZ you may have to registar the mac address with them before they allow it on the network. As of now they probably have the Speedstream modem registered and this is why you do not have access to online gaming in DMZ.

I have a Siemens 4200 ethernet/USB ADSL modem on a machine running Windows XP. If I switch to a new machine with Windows 7 64-bit, will I need a new driver for the modem?


If its connected via ethernet you may not need an updated driver of the modem but and updated driver of your LAN card. If its connected via USB then yup try the manufacturers website for the modem divers

For IP address, you need to contact Service Provider. Each customer has it's unique IP address that helps to track the person, if required.

Setting ports


Hello, I went through this with utorrent when I first started and I had trouble with my router not opening the port. When I hook directly to the modem the port is open. But after much research I found that you don't have to have the port open, it just enables other to download from the items that you are seeding. Works just fine either way. Enjoy.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I have helped you with your question and/or solved the problem, please take just a moment to rate this post. Thank you!

Problems installing modem with Windows Vista


If your Internet Service Proviser supplied the modem they would have supplied the driver including the configuration detail embeded in the CD.
If you don't have the CD, you need to contact your Internet Service Provider for this setup info plus installation CD and if they didn't supply the modem then you need to go to the Siemens WEB site to download the driver for your model modem.

Can siemens speedstream 4200 be used with wifi antenna. do not want dsl.


The Siemens is a DSL modem and doesn't meet with your requirements.
Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

I want to install a Siemens SpeedStream 6520 wireless modem but have no installation disks.


If you're talking about the drivers for Windows XP, click on this link.

For Windows Vista, go here instead.

You will need to extract those packages once they download, and run them. You should have no issues after that!
