Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

1 Answer

Internet connection I am using Siemens 4200 DSL modem on my windows XP running desktop. I hav this strange problem with internet connection using this modem.When I start my modem and PC in the morning, the internet connection will not be established directly. The modem connects for a few seconds and then drops the connection. The internet and DSL lights on the modem goes off. After about 30 seconds it connects again and then drops again... This goes on sometimes for hours before I get a stable connection. But once I have the connection, it rarely drops on its own. Kindly hlp as it is very annoying .. I called my ISP providers technician and when he uses a Linksys modem the connection is established directly and doesn't drop!!!! He says the modem is faulty, but I have already got it replaced and I don't think the modem itself has a problem. I feel I am missing something in the settings. Please advice...

Re: Internet connection

I think your modem needs to be configure by your ISP.
I change my modem here in my house with other brand and did'nt work, so i put the original modem i used and it works again..

I have a siemens 4200 adsl modem i had a net gear modem before and that was not working with wireless internet and now this modem wont let me connect wireless either only with the ethernet cabel. help!

Hello Mate,
the siemens speedstream 4200 is a DSL modem/Router which doesn't have wireless connection. So even tough if you have a computer equiped with a wireless adapter, you will not be able to connect wirelessly because the siemens 4200 doesn't act as wireless access point.
You may need next time to check first if the modem/router to buy support wireless (wifi g or n) and make sure that it's not only a modem, it should be also a router.
i attached here some references for you from the top brands:
1. Linksys DSL modem/Router with wireless N:
2. Linksys DSL modem/Router with Wireless G:
You can find other brands as Dlink, Netgear ...
Best Regards,

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.

How to set dsl modem

You go to start menu and access the Control Panel. Open Network Connections and make sure the LAN connection is enabled. If not, right click and select Enable. After confirming LAN connection, then go back a page and click Internet Options. Then the page will automatically show you the General Tab. Type in (or verify) home page in the window. eg. . Then select Connections Tab. Remove any connections that appear in the window below. Below that on the same page, select LAN Settings. Check the Automatically Detect option. This will allow your PC to detect your modem and your internet service. Select OK at the bottom and the window will close. Click Start again and select the Internet Explore. If your internet service is active the window will open to your home page. Good Luck!

New computer running slow

if you are using dial up, you shud not have a modem.. modem is just for DSL connection
if you have a modem probably you are using a DSL connection

dial up - connection using a phone line with internet connection; cannot use fone while on internet

DSL/modem- connection using a modem plugged in with computer and fone line; able to use fone even when on internet.

Speedstream 4200 setup

I have just set up 4200 with dsl - you may find that you need to reset modem before you can configure. I was told that you need either a grey or yellow cable from your laptop to the modem. I use to access modem. The 4200 I have was from a bigpond a/c - originally configured accordingly.

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.
