Re: 4100 no driver disc
Hi! make sure you have the new account name registered, (or if former account is still active, you can have it re-registered) you can also call on your ISP to let them register your account. if you already have a username/ password, access this modem by going to 192.168.0.1, click on advanced > connection configuration. if it asks you to enter the modem access code, locate it at the bottom of the modem. then on the user id box type your account name or user id and type the password as well, click on save changes. it will prompt you to restart the modem. please do so, check on the modem lights; power, ethernet, dsl and internet should be solid green, activity will be blinking on/off, then you've got good connection & you're ready to go. Note: this modem doesn't need a driver, it already has built-in pppoe software....

Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future... The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations. 1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..
So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks.... Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
Well, you can call up the estore AT&T toll free number and enquire if they do give away the installation disks so that you can have them ordered and have your internet connection up and running. AT&T do support and merchandise Siemens 4100. The Toll free number being:

Check if the hardware (modem) is recognised in the device manager (icon my computer > right click, > properties, > hardware, > device manager).
if its recognised then right click it select properties and then select diagnise and see if your computer is communicating correctly with your modem.
If its there but fails to diagnise then goback to the device manager update the driver and try process one again.
if its there and diagnise well, then all you need is restart your computer after turning off other potential modem devices eg mobile phone connections or bluetooth, after restart try using your moddem once again (I am assuming you havent deleted any important files or change your settings.
If three fails, then restore your computer to an earlier time when you were still able to use your modem (start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore ) and follow the procedure that follows.
* You dont need any special drivers to install modem. * Open up internet explorer, type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar and press enter key. * Now you should see the configuration page of modem. * On the left side, click on Advanced button, below that, you will see "connection configuration" option - click on it.

* Now it may ask you for restart modem. click on restart. within 1 min, you will be connected to internet.
