Our speedstream 6520 modem won't connect 2 a new laptop w Vista

Hi we have a speedstream 6520 and the older computers connect fine to it with our WEP code - however we just bought a new laptop with vista and can't find the disk to the speedstream - it says the wireless strength is fine - however the new laptop keeps dropping in and out of connection when on wireless - its vista based the old ones are windows xp - however I think I may need the software or disc - anyone got ideas - I just don't understand why other older laptops can connect immediately with just our WEP code - but this new one needs the software installed???

I guess you probably aint set-up a wireless router before, what you need to do is get it connected up so you revieve local area is connected then, load internet explorer you will recieve a message like page not displayed. where you usually type in www.ebay.com for example type in the number thats on the bottom of the router ie it looks somthing like this 192.168.1.1 for example. a menu will then appear, fill in your broadband username details etc and you should be up and going, if you have problems feel free to email me,, All the best John Auctionscotland@tiscali.co.uk

SOURCE: 2wire modem not broadcasting wireless signal

Hey I was given a high speed Bell Sympatico interent system and I even had 7 different modems installed in one year and even including 2 new 2wire modems..

Firstly all of the problems were firstly related to the fact there was no Bell high speed cable actually in my area, even though i had paid for a high speed interent service for years too.

and the problmes were next directly also to the mostly pretentious, incompetent Bell technicians.

Do first use an interent speed test site to verify your actual supplied interent speeds and do always tell the ISP that you want real high speeds and real service from them rightfully ..

FINALLY THEY BELL SYMPATICO WOULD CORRECT THEIR SYSTEM PROBLEMS , AND FINALLY GAVE ME EVEN A FIBER OPTIC CABLE CONNECTION TOO, AND IT WOULD RUN GOOD FOR 3 WEEKS next till another fool, a Bell technican make some other LINE changes and my system became slow, problemed,

THUS SO MANY TIMES now I had discovered firsthand what the right hand of BELL,ca giveth the left hand can take away.. for it seems everytime they the techs do make new line changes my own ISP address next would change AS A RESULT too and lead to some of the new problems...

So I again called Bell tech and they next tend to do a ping and do something else and so for another short period their interent system would work till... the other hand had taken it away..

Continue to give them the techs hell for they deserve it and tend not to tell the truth as to what the real problems are.

If you have a 2 wire modem you do not need firewall software too and you can turn it off.

SOURCE: Vista OS can't connect wireless to Dlink DI-614+ rounter

yes it does but what exactly is this it's your comp that's not connecting to your wireless network..so here try these steps...
first click start>click in start search>in that box type in services>it gives you an option of services on the same start menu at the top click on that...
it will take you to a new screen that says services at the top on that screen you need to scroll down at the bottom and look for wlan auto configuration rt click on it and click start if start is greyed out press restart....
close services down..
click start>click connect to form the start menu> and check it gives your network name in there .if it says anything like no network found in range. pls make sure that wireless switch on your laptop is turned on...
if still you're not able to connectr it's a concern with the drivers of wireless adapter on your comp genrally on new comps its quite common get the drivers reinstalled....

Speedstream 6520 enabling voip connection to yahoo voice


Dear yohwayne

I am afraid that there are incompatibilities between speedstream 6520 and Voip service. I will need to look at this a little bit further but I think the only workaround is a firmware update. (modified version of the original)

Siemens SpeedStream 6520 Wireless problems! please help


Yes.Get rid of it.I have a Satellite also and do agree configuration was dodgy at first but the range in Wi-fi was not even 50 ft. as opposed the 100 ft. promised.But finally,after it shorted out my dial tone like most other 6520's I just went back to my trusty speedstream 4100.Good-luck.

Siemens SpeedStream 6520 Wireless problems! please help


um not sure, but if you have the disk that came with your router run it and fill in the wireless wizard. Also, on my 6520 the "wireless" led doesnt light up unless i have a device connected that is wireless. Your laptop may be incorrectly setup
