Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

1 Answer

Siemens 4100 modem

My modem will disconnect instantly with the briefest of power interruptions. When power is restored, the internet is lost. I have had to reinstall the Linksys router to restore internet in the past. I have a new Linksys router, BEFSX41, and the problem continues. ATT&T tech support checked the outside drop and they say all is well outside. I have checked that all of the DSL filters are in place and replaced phone lines inside. Still, I must restart/reset the modem, router, and computer multiple times before internet access is restored. Do I have a bad modem?
Thanks

You may have a bad power supply.
You would be better off picking up a small APC or UPS and have all your computer devices running thru.
It is common that after a power interruption the modem must reset to regain it lost signal

Computer won't recognize driver


Turn the modem off. Disconnect the electrical power.
Reconnect the electrical power. Turn the modem on.
This "resets" the modem, and you should be good-to-go.

Or, telephone your Internet Service Provider's "Help Desk", and get them to trouble-shoot.

You might try uninstalling & reinstalling your network adapter. Then disconnect the power supply to your modem, reboot your computer, then reconnect the modem power supply, reboot again. The system should then recognize the adapter and restore your ability to access the internet.

Modem only shows two lights; can't connect my PC to the internet!


It sounds like you've lost connect to your ISP. Have you checked with them to make sure you don't have an interruption of service?
If it's not an IOS, work with the ISP support technician to trouble shoot. They may have to replace the modem if they can't isolate the problem.

Problem with network


Make sure the physical connections are correct. Modem connected to the Internet Port of the router and your PC to port number 1 on the Linksys router as well. Try to reset the router. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for about 20 seconds. After that, unplug the power to the router and to the cable modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Plug the modem first, wait for the lights to stop blinking then plug in the router. Check if the internet works fine again.

Hii,

* If you can connect after disconnecting power and reconnecting, it means there is formation of static charge on modem

* Check whether there is any cordless phone or any other satellite devices next to the modem. If so, move the modem 10 feet away.

* If your modem is placed on carpet, please place it on wooden desk

For guest:
Do you see the power is also interrupted while loosing connection? If so try plugging the modem into different socket. Dont waste money for simple problems.

If this doesnt work, please dont rate me down, if it works, please rate me as fixya!!! lol...

Have a nice day!!!
