Question about Siemens SpeedStream 2624 Router (936-2624-001 kit)
My father just bought this router, and I am having trouble setting it up. The currently hard-wired computer is a MAC running OSX, and is connected to a Westell Wirespeed modem; model 890 21001504. When I attempt to connect the modem to the router, via an ethernet cabel to the WAN slot in the back of the router, then connect the Mac to the router, via an ethernet cabel to the LAN-1 (2,3 or 4), neither the mac can access the internet, nor can i find the router with a wireless laptop. I found the default server name for the router, 192.168.254.254, and have gone through the resetting process, and have still had no luck.
Am I connecting the cabels accurately?
Can this router even be used in this way with a MAC?
I appreciate your time and help,
Any router will work, TCP/IP is a network standard, definately double check the cables. Your DSL modem is usually 192.168.254.254. and the router is usually 192.168.1.1. Check your documentation for the default IP. Once you know it type it in to the broswer in your Mac. Before doing so connect with an ethernet cable, purchase a new one if necessary. Connect from the <--> labeled port on the mac, or ethernet port. These wires are not like phone lines, they have 8 wires instead of 4/6. The router usually has ports on the back labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, and WAN. the 1-4 ports are LAN and that is also labeled on there. Plug the mac into port 1 and any other computers in after you get internet. once the physical connection is recognized. Go to your browser in the mac and proceed. if you get a web based router configuration page your router is working, then make the WAN connection to the ethernet port on the back of the dsl mode. Be sure your cables are good. Also go to your control panel and make sure your internet is enabled in your network section.
