Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

1 Answer

Printer and Modem

When I use the printer, the SpeedStream disconnects and I have to reset it. It worked for a year. I checked the connections. Pulled out all cords and reinserted them. Could it be the electricity in the den---looks like I get a surge on the computer screen---it dims and then brightens.

Re: Printer and Modem

Are you using a USB cable to connect your modem ? Are you using a USB cable to connect your printer ? If you are using a USB cable to connect your modem, try using an ethernet cable and your LAN card instead. It will work better and you won't need modem drivers to make it work. You do however have to have a LAN card or built-in LAN adapter. As long as you have one of those 2, the best way to hook up your modem would be by using the ethernet jack on the modem straight into your LAN card/adapter. If you are not using USB to connect your modem then please send me your printer model and how it's hooked up and I will help you figure it out. Hope this helps.

My Siemens speedstream 4100 modem looses the internet connection once in a while. Sometimes 2 or3 times a day. Turning the power off and back on resets it and it works OK for a while. At&T tech support...

The Modem may be over heating, make sure the modem is not in a cupboard or a small confined area, check if the modem is hot to touch, if it is move the modem to another area.

The internet light is off all others green on the 5100 modem. Also, very slow internet and hard to go to various webpages. Will this correct itself over time or is there a quick fix?

You can try resetting the modem to factory condition.
Turn off the modem from power
Disconnect the modem from the computer
Turn on the modem
Press the reset button using a pointed object, (a toothpick or a pencil)
Wait for all the lights to flash green then release the button
Reboot your computer
Connect the modem to your computer

Everything should work fine.

If the problem persists contact the service provider.

Speedstream 4200 lights no connection

Please check if the POWER light on your modem is solid RED.
Because if it is, your modem is already defective.
If you purchased it from your Internet Service Provider,contact them to check if your modem is still in warranty so they can replace it ot not.
If you purchased it from near computer shops near you, they it's time to buy a new modem.

Speedstream 4100 does not work with router

you can't.
when the item name as modem/router. it means the main function is modem with added router function.
you can't connect 2 router/modem together. both need access to the internet and IPS for it function correctly.
however, you can connect 1 modem and one router.
