There is one ethernet connection to the modem which supports one computer. I have this device with my ATT Yahoo service.

This simplest however possibly undesirable option would be to take turns using the single connection.

I added a router between the modem and my computers and I can wire up to 4 computers to the router connected to the modem.

WIreless routers (as was mine) often have 4 wired ports for multiple machines connected by wire and can accomodate additional machines wirelessly.

The first set of answers you can probably give me to assist you is the make and model of the two computers you want to connect as well as the name of your internet service provider or even better a link to their help/support web site.

If you decided to connect them with a wire could you place a wire safely (like along a wall to connect both computers)?

Second option is connect wirelessly one or both computers the information already provided.

The answer to the above question will affect the router you choose to purchase to connect the machines.

If necessary there is a means to connect the second machine to the first and the first to the internet without a router however unless you already have the hardware and are willing to have the first machine on for the second to use the internet the cost of parts for this solution will likely be the same as for the router and it is not very flexible if you want to add another machine.

I would be happy to analyze the above alternatives and provide you a recommendation to move forward -- however to do so I need you to add a comment to this request with the information about your computers and your Internet service provider. and whether or not a wire only solution works for you. Look forward to the receiving the information and providing you some options.

I have a siemens speedstream 4200 modem. It gets very hot to the touch, is it good to turn the modem switch off sometimes when you have your computer shut down?


Sometimes it's normal for some modems to be very hot. Make sure it's no in a very enclose space. And yes it's ok tp turn the modem switch off sometimes if you have to shutdown the computer. Just be sure to turn on the modem first then the computer in that sequence when you need to use them again.

Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem


Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

2wire Gateway IP address:
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

Hi I need help with my modem settings. It is siemens speedstream 4200. I am told in forums I need to open ports to solve my problems.. but cannot successfully do it. PS3 will only give a NAT3 connection...


Do you have the device hooke up directly to the speadstream 4200? As the Speedstream 4200 is a modem most companies already have this device in bridged mode because it is largely understood that if this device enters a home it will be shared. That being said do you have a router? if so your task will be that much more easier if you are going to purchase a router please ensure that you buy a good one as gaming can be quite intensive and some routers do not do so well when it comes to this..

Depending on your ISP if you place the PS3 in DMZ you may have to registar the mac address with them before they allow it on the network. As of now they probably have the Speedstream modem registered and this is why you do not have access to online gaming in DMZ.

I cannt play wolrd of warcraft online but i go and check my and things like that


http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/World_of_Warcraft.htm should be close enough to get you started (they don't have pictures for the 4200). Check the link for the downloader too - you'll need those ports forwarded if you want to download upgrades. (And you probably can't get both the desktop and the laptop playing at the same time - a port can only be forwarded to one computer at a time.)

Siemens SpeedStream 2604 Router linking issue


It sounds like you are using a straight-through network cable. Try using a cross-over network cable to connect the your computer to the SpeedStream. One can be purchased for pretty cheap money from any consumer electronics store.
