Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

1 Answer

More than 1 computer accessing internet.

I bought a Seimens 4100 DSL modem to replace a Westell 6100. I created a broadband connection on all the computers in my little home network (I have a Linksys router). I can only have internet access on one computer at a time (get a meesage that the line is busy). My old Westell allowed continuous access for all the computers without having to double click on a shortcut on the desktop to connect to the isp. How can I get all my computers to have access to the internet simultaneously?

Probably not - contact your DSL internet service and ask what modem they suggest.

Get no connection useing 6100 modem connected to wireless B router

Hi starman re westell 6100.

Hi i hope you have find solution with your issue ifnot let me walk you through on how to get it up and working.

First , you need to connect your modem directly to your computer. We need to access its Graphic Unit Interface by opening your browser and type onyour address bar its default gateway.

The def. gateway can be or depending what ISP youre connected to . For ATT broadband its / verizon broadband is  { onyour address bar : type in and hit Enter.

to check def gateway : you can go to start > run > cmd then enter > on DOS command type in ipconfig /all  then HIT enter > itl provide you your network list > your default gateway is your westell modem or if your linksys is connected than it should be you linksys.

Itl route you to your westell page. Try to go to  Broadband and choose connection or configure connection.button. Look for configure and by default you will see its in PPPoE> change it to bridged ethernet and save.

By enabling bridge to your modem w/c is westell youl have a chance to configure you linksys to PPPoE. 

Connect you westell to your linksys and on your computer try to check your default gateway as seen above. By default linksys can be access by typing in or Itl prompt you for UN and PW: by default your Username is : Blank and Password should be admin. { blank = dont type anything}

On your linksys SETUP page > by default it is set to DHCP or obtain IP address automatically. Pls change it to PPPoE and type in your UN and PW : username@isp { your ISP name}. and hit save settings or save.

Restart your linksys and try to browse to check fore connection.

For all types of modem such as westell : you need to set it to bridge mode first foryou wireless router to work ie linksys. Set linksys to PPPoE .. that should work .

For more detailed steps or questions re: this issue pls dont hestiate contact me. Best wishes.

Pls enable you Wireless Encryption for your home network security.

Ciao .

DSL Modem

That means that the phone is interfeering with the broadband. Often you fix this kind of problems by replacing the broadband filter. If it does not work after replacement it means there is a problem either with phone line or with broaband provider.
In this case contact first ISP (broaband provider), then your phone company to locate the problem.
Most likely it is the filter.
