Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge

1 Answer

I want to secure my wireless network so neighbors coannot use it

I have a
PC with
IP Address 192.168.2.10
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 92.168.2.1

SpeedStream 5242-Series DSL MODEM.
It appears to have
IP Adress 70.54.9.146
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.255
DNS Server Address 67.69.235.1
Modem IP Adress 192.168.2.1

I also have a
D-Link Wireless Router WBR-1310

I thought the D-Link router would be acting as my DHCP server with a default address of 192.168.0.1, giving my PC an IP adress of 192.168.0.2 or some such. However, it looks as though the Speed Stream modem is acting as the DHCP Server?
When I ping 192.168.0.1 I get no response. I can't see the D-Link router at its default IP address. If I cannot access it I cannot get into the configuration utility to apply security measures (I want to enable just the mac addresses of our PCs so no one else can get onto the network.)
Do you have any ideas?
thank you,
Bruce

Type your ip adress into you web browser, this should take you to the configuration screen, there should be a tab that says security or something like that, select the type of security that you want, and it should assign you a wireless key automatically, hope this helps

I just configured my MFC 490cw for wireless printing. It works but now I have IP address conflicts across all computers XP & Windows 7) and X-box in the house. If I turn the printer off, the network...


When configuring an address for the printer, the IP configuration might look like (just an example):

IP Address - 192.168.1.2

Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway - 192.168.1.1

It's important to note that even though you are not using any IP addresses in the default range for DHCP, the Subnet Mask and Default Gateway addresses will be THE SAME.

If you have another device on your network that will be assign a fixed address, you would use for example:

IP Address - 192.168.1.3

Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway - 192.168.1.1

For any other devices, just increment the IP address by one, 192.168.1.4, 192.168.1.5, etc and use the same Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.
(see the owners manual or site for steps on configuraing the printer TCP/IP information). This should take care of any conflicts.

How to Calculate an IP v4 Subnet


An IP address is a specific address assigned to a computer across a network, allowing computers to communicate with one another. When IP Version 4 debuted, there were far less computers on the web. IP v4 only contains 4,294,967,296 possible addresses, including subnet number and broadcast addresses. Now, there are many more devices on the web and because of this, subnetting (as well as NAT) was developed as a way of maximizing usable addresses.


The Parts of an IP Address:

IP addresses contain 4 octets, 8 bits each. For example,

192.168.1.1 in binary is

11000000.10101000.00000001.00000001


The Mask:

A Subnet Mask tells a computer what part of the address declares a subnet so it knows when the destination address is on the same network or needs to be routed to a different one. For example,

The subnet mask 255.255.255.0 in binary is

11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000

when applied to 192.168.1.1 or

11000000.10101000.00000001.00000001

The first 24 bits are the subnet. So, all addresses in 192.168.1.xxx are part of the same subnet. When a computer with address 192.168.1.2 wants to communicate with a computer with address 192.168.1.3 The information does not need to be routed because the computers are on the same network. However when a computer with address 192.168.1.2 wants to communicate with microsoft.com or 207.46.232.182, the data must be sent to the default gateway to be routed.

The area that is not covered by the mask (in this case, the last octet) are used by the network. The lowest possible number of .00000000 or 192.168.1.0 is the subnet number and the highest possible number of .11111111 or 192.168.1.255 is the broadcast address. These particular addresses cannot be issued to devices on a network. This leaves 254 addresses on 192.168.1.0 that can be assigned to devices on that network. The default gateway (the router) can be assigned any address in that space. However, it is typically assigned the first address (192.168.1.1 in this case)


One more example:

Ip address of 10.101.75.150 with subnet mask of 255.255.252.0 or,

IP:00001010.01100101.01001011.10010110
SM:11111111.11111111.11111100.000000000

00001010.01100101.010010 00.00000000 or 10.101.72.0 is the lowest address (aka subnet number) and

00001010.01100101.010010 11.11111111 or 10.101.75.255 is the highest number (aka broadcast address)

Any number in between is assignable to a device on the network.


The Easy Way (without binary):

Always look or the odd octet (the one that isn't 255 or 0) in the subnet mask.

255.255.252.000

in this case is 252. Subtract that number from 255 and you have 3 (or as I like to call it the magic number)

find the same octet from the IP address:

010.101.075.150
255.255.252.000

in this case is 75. Find the multiples of the magic number that this octet is between. In this case, 75 is a multiple of 3, so the numbers we are looking for would be 75 and the previous multiple 73.

So far we have,

10.101.73.xxx and
10.101.75.xxx

fill the X's for the low number with 0 and
fill the X's for the high number with 255 and you have,

10.101.73.0 (subnet number) and
10.101.75.255 (broadcast address)

All addresses in between are usable. As confusing as it all may sound, all takes is practice. "Practice makes perfect." Try making up your own IP address and Subnet mask and calculate the range to find the subnet number and broadcast address. In time you will have it down to a science.

Why Subnet Mask is used with IP address


In networking the subnet mask is used with IP address to get the Network ID. The Network ID is used to identify that the particular IP address belongs to which network. To get the network ID the Subnet Mask is AND ed with the IP address in binary format.

Example:-

IPv4 address contains 4 fields and each field is 8bit

IP Address - 192.168.10.2

Subnet Mask (Default)- 255.255.255.0

Binary

192 -> 11000000

168 -> 10101000

10 -> 00001010

2 -> 00000010

255 -> 11111111

Logical AND (formula)

* 0 AND 0 = 0
* 0 AND 1 = 0
* 1 AND 0 = 0
* 1 AND 1 = 1

192.168.10.2 ------> 11000000.10101000.00001010.00000010

255.255.255.0 ------> 11111111.11111111.11111111.11111111
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11000000.10101000.00001010.00000000 (AND ing)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hence after AND ing we get the network ID that is 192.168.10.0, so the IP address 192.168.10.2 belongs to this network.

Enjoy networking.

If you are in a network, you need to have a thing called IP address which is usually assigned by a DHCP server or a wireless access point.If DHCP Server is not available in your case then you need to configure evreything manually.If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.Just search for the WI_FI signal and connect with it.

For manually configuring Wireless Network Setting

Go to control panel and click "network and Sharing Center", click Change Adapter settings" Right Click on the wireless adapter, Select "properties", click on "Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4)".

Select now use the followinf IP address,

Manually fill the IP address : 
                       Subnet mask :
                       Default Gateway: 

Select "Use the following DNS address "

Manually fill Preferred DNS address:
                Alternate DNS address:

For example :                           IP address               : 192.168.0.10
                       Subnet mask               : 255.255.255.0
                       Default Gateway           :192.168.0 1  

                    Preferred DNS address    :218.248.234.117
                     Alternate DNS address   :218.248.136.142

IP address is needed for communications between devices.
subnet mask is needed for identifying your Network Address Node.
Default Gateway is usually your Router or Wi-Fi access point IP Address.

DNS address for resolving domain name(mostly for Internet browsing)

Hope you can connect it now.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Adding additional computer problem


Yes, the xp machine connects to the net. DHCP is not enabled. The ipconfig/all command brings up the correct static ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. But it does also say under the ip configuration that ip routing is not enabled. I did have the 2000 machine connected when I first set up the router yesterday, but I booted up my laptop to try to set up a wireless connection, and then I had to reinstall the entire router set-up.
