Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)
How do I ? What do I need to hook up to desktop in another room I have a Siemens SpeedStream Modem. My computer is windows Xp the second computer is windows vista. I have no clue ?
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.
