Dear kcpau

You need to set the internet connection manually on Windows Me. Go to Control Pannel, select Network connections and follow options to select LAN settings. You might need someone to walk you through the steps.

Consider upgrading your ME to XP; Windows ME is unstable on networks and may trouble you to drinking. It is ultimately best. If you start upgrading it, XP will automatically put on the internet if you have your IP addresses already set, or will ask you to punch in IP addresses at the end, then you are done.

Good luck.

No activity on my new speedstream 4200

Ethernet and DSL lights are indicating you have ADSL available on your line, and that you have computers connected to the router.

What has probably happened is that Optus did not set up the new router with your username and password. Go to thw following website for details on how to setup the modem.

Manual Modem Settings The Optus DSL Broadband self-installation CD configures all the necessary settings for your DSL Broadband service. You do not need to manually configure your modem if you have run the self-installation CD. While the following information is provided for your reference, using the self-installation CD is the recommended method for configuring your modem.
The Siemens SpeedStream 4200 ADSL modem can use either USB or Ethernet to connect to your computer.
  • If you are connecting via USB you will need to run the self-installation CD to install the USB driver before you connect your modem. The Siemens SpeedStream 4200 ADSL modem supplied by Optus has been customised for the Optus DSL Broadband service. Only the USB driver supplied on the self-installation CD will work with the Optus service. If you do not have the self-installation CD, you can download the latest drivers from the Siemens website.
  • If you are connecting via Ethernet it is possible to manually configure your modem without the self-installation CD. Only a web browser is required.
After connecting your modem there are two key steps to manually configure your modem for the Optus DSL Broadband service:
  • PC settings - Configure your computer's Ethernet network interface.
  • Configure Your Modem - Set the password in your modem's configuration pages.
PC Settings Step by step instructions are provided for each of the supported Windows operating systems:
  • Windows 98/Me
  • Windows 2000
  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
Configure Your Modem To configure your modem settings you must now access the configuration manager using your web browser. This is done by entering the IP address in the address bar of the browser window as follows:
Note: If you are updating the password in your modem, please complete steps 1 to 3 only.
Step 1 of 5
  • Enter (Default IP address of the Optus Supplied Siemens SpeedStream 4200) to access the modem Configuration software. You may wish to add this page to your Favorites for easy access later.
  • The following modem System Summary screen will appear.
ss4200_home_disconnected.gif Step 2 of 5
  • Click on the word Setup in the green menu of options on the left side of the web page. An expanded set of options will be displayed.
  • Click PPP in the list of options that appeared below the word Setup.
  • The ISP Password page will appear:
  • Replace the default username ( with the username provided for you by Optus DSL Broadband.
  • Replace the default password with the password provided by Optus DSL Broadband in the Password field.
  • Note: You will find your Optus DSL Broadband username and password on the letter you received with your self-installation kit.
  • Save these details by clicking the Save Settings button.
Step 3 of 5
  • The next screen will ask you to disconnect and reconnect to the Optus DSL Broadband service.
  • Click the link to return to the System Summary page.
  • Click the Disconnect button to disconnect the modem from the Optus DSL Broadband service. The text on the button will change to Connect.
  • Click Connect to reconnect the modem to the Optus DSL Broadband service.
Step 4 of 5
  • Click on the word Setup in the green menu of options on the left side of the web page. An expanded set of options will be displayed.
  • Click the word Mode in the green menu of options on the left side of the web page.
  • Confirm that Optus Bridge is the selected operation mode.
  • If Optus Bridge is not selected click the radio button next to Optus Bridge to select it.
  • Click the Apply button.
Step 5 of 5 ss4200_reboot_1.gif
  • Click the Reboot button to restart the modem using your saved settings.
  • After about a minute the modem will return to an operational state and connect to the Optus DSL Broadband service.
ss4200_reboot_3.gif Once the modem has rebooted and the ADSL connection has been successfully established the DSL LED indicator will light steady green.
Your modem is now connected to the Optus DSL Broadband service.

Make sure that the OS Window Vista has not encountered any problems while installation process.

click start>control panel>internet connection>network and sharing center>setup a new connection or network>connect to the internt>broadband PPPoE> Enter you User ID and the Password (contact your ISP) confirm the password and click connect.
You should be conected.
Make sure the ADSL LINK or DSL light on the modem is solid before you create the connectoid.

Can't get modem to work

speedstream 5260 modems don't have a built-in pppoe in it, so with your win xp OS you just have to make a broadband connection using the new connection wizard by either going to control panel > network connection > new connection wizard or in internet explorer, click on tools menu > internet options > connection tab > click on setup button. follow the wizard and type your username & password on your registered internet account. also make sure you delete your previous broadband connections (if you have set up one before) to avoid conflict with the new connection.
the set up is different if you are using lower versions of windows OS, (like win2000, ME, 98 SE/ FE or 95? ) or Mac 9 you may need to install a pppoe software such as Enternet 300, WinPoet, etc.
