Re: Cant connect to "SOUL" adsl

First, just so you know, some devices (modems) just will not work on a provider's (ISP) network.. did you call your Internet Provider and ask it this device is compatible?

When you updated the firmware, did you receive any messages about failures? any messages at all?

I have a D-Link G604T Modem/Router and ADSL light blinks after I have a phone call and wont log on to Internet.

sounds like you may not have filters correctly installed. You should have signal filters which will seperate the Internet signal from the standard phone signal. There should be one which looks like a cable splitter with a symbol for phone and modem... make sure these are connected the correct way. If you also have any other phones or fax machines connected, they should have a filter at the socket....

Connect two computers to D-Link ADSL Modem (DSL-502T)

There are many USB to ethernet adapters available, for example - Belkin USB to Ethernet Adapter with 2m Patch Cable from Amazon. Your laptop may only be USB version 1.0 so it would be best to make sur the adapter supports USB 1.0 and 2.0.

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.

  • 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.

Intermittent ADSL connection

The DSL light blinking or going out indicates that the DSL modem is loosing sync. This is usually caused by noise on the line. When you get the DSL service you should be given filters to put on all of your phones so that the phones will not interfere with the DSL signal. Those filters need to be attached to anything connected to the phone line that has the DSL on it except for the DSL modem. Other than that the problem could be on the service providers end, something outside your home, or the DSL modem going out. I would suggest that you verify everything is filtered, then contact your service provider so they can run test on your DSL line.

Static Ip with Speedstream 4200 Modem

I am assuming here with the way you have it set up your getting an internet connection.
what you saying i understsand mostly so i'll see if i can help you
first of all you have speedstreem modem that connects to you isp, this is assign your internet address from the isp if you paid for a static IP it would be in here, if not it's assiged by a dhcp from your isp company so if you if turn it off or have a power loss for anymore than 5-15min your ip changes.
now your modem then connects into your belkin router this as well as your modem it's prob set up as dhcp so it wants to issue each computer with an internal address of 192.168.0.X the reason for this is so it knows where to send the incomming information to what computer.
no matter what computer your using the address that goes over the internet will be the one assigned to modem from internet provider so if this need to be static IP to run your game server you will have contact your internet provider for an address.
but you may be confussing the issue a little, my suggestion to you would be:
1. go to your connections on each computer
2. right click on the lan connection choose properties
3. go to internet protocol (TCP/IP) then click properties
4. then click on obtain ip automatically and obtain dns automatically
this will remove the static windows address you may have put in.
try this and see if you can get you game or game server will work.
btw you may have to reboot your computers after this to get be sure to get the new address.

Siemens Speedstream 4200 NetComm V300 on VOIP

When the V300 Line/Phone led flash in alternating fashion, it's telling you it's WAN connection is dead. The WAN light is off too. so internet and VoiP phone will not work

When the V300 Line/Phone led flash in sync, it can't register to the SIP server.

The V300 does not appear to be listed on the Mynetfone website though. Have you checked to see that your V300 has the latest Firmware. LINK

It may be that the V300 is not getting it's IP renewed. Can you alter the IP lease time? Do you have the V300 set up for PPPoE, or do you have it set to static or DHCP (refer CH4, page 25)

Static ip address

It is a ADSL Modem. It should have all ports open. In order to set a EXTERNAL static Ip address, you would have to call up your ISP and ask for a static IP address.
