Siemens gigaset SE587

I have a siemens gigaset SE587 wireless router, the signal strength seems very poor as I have trouble connecting my Xbox 360 which is only about 20M away on the same level.....Tiscali advise me that it has a range of 100M.....don't think so somehow! is there a way to improve signal strength?
Thanks.

    I have 3 pcs and two playstation 3s . Two of the pcs and 1 playstation works perfectly , the 2nd plystation wont connect at all and the 3rd pc only connects occasionally . The 3rd pc is only 6mtrs away and has great difficulty connecting but if you move it closer it works fine . I as convinced the range on this router is very limited

    I am having very simnilar problems.

    My router is sitting on top of my PC, the wireless adaptor arial is sitting NEXT to the router, I can connect BUT it spends 4 or 5 mins trying to aquire a network address then gives up.

    My laptop does the same and the Wii cannot see it at all.

    Connecting by cable (as I am at the moment) is nearly as bad my network connetion has to have been in the connected state for 6 mins BEFORE it will actually let me connect to the internet.



    Tiscalli are going round in circles telling me to use the cd rom to install the software (shame this doesn't work and I have asked for another)

I had a lot of problems with this as well and I finally figured out that whilst your wireless router can supposedly support 254 different devices, it's only usually set up to look after five. We have about 8 wireless devices in our house and were having loads of problems. If you find that it's usually the same device that has a problem connecting then this is likely to be your problem - all the IP addresses have been snaffled by the other devices.

Go into the router set up (type in "my ip" in google, click on the What Is My IP, and then type the IP you are given into your browser, should take you to the router log in). Log in (admin/admin if you haven't changed anything). Go to Set Up, then Local Network. You should see a start IP and a finish IP - will probably only be about 5 difference. Change the last digits of the finish IP - if it's 145, maybe move it to 150, that should give you IPs for 10 devices - if you have more devices increase it further.

Save and restart everything just to be on the safe side and you should find that everything can get it's own IP and should have no problem cvonnecting - hope it helps.

Try moving you're pc AWAY from the access point a little. as having them too close together is not going to help.

Also, as this is the standard modem you get with tiscali, it will be preset to a certain frequency (channel). So it is likely that others are using this channel (ie other tiscali customers on your street), causing interference.

Change the channel by connecting ur pc to the router (via cable if necessary), open you're internet browser (internet explorer or firefox), type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar
username: admin
password: admin

->Wireless (the tab below the word tiscali)

It should be in there somewhere... fairly easy to spot, just look for the word channel

trial and error until it's better.

Having had 3 routers burn out, I was actually quite impressed with this. Easy to set up, and it just sits there, works, and does not crash. 3 weeks so far running 24/7. I can even pick up at the bottom of my garden - through walls - 60 feet+ away. There MAY be a setting you have to access where you can turn up the wireless power. I remember a Netgear you could set to 25%, 50% or 100%. NO WIRELESS ROUTER WOULD BE MADE THAT IS DESIGNED TO WORK ONLY TO 10 FEET

I also have a siemens gigaset se587 and when i rang up tiscalli i was told the range was only 10 ft. so i suggest buying a universal router that works on any network

Router connection loss


Your router might have been reset and now the settings on your devices does not match that of the router. If you have wireless security enabled on your router make sure your devices are set up to match those settings.

Gigaset SE587 networking adaptor


Any of the major manufacturers ie: Linksys, Belkin, D-Link Cnet etc. will work. Go to your local computer or office supply store and tell them the router that you have and they should be able to direct you in the right direction.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Configure gigaset SE587 for BSNL broadband


Hi,

If this is router is gifted to you by a friend of yours who is from UK, Please check if this is locked. Most of the times these would be locked by the ISP. This is a router provide by tiscali UK. Please select the dialing number to 0,38 this is the dialing code for india.
If you use this should work and use 192.168.1.1 as default DNS.

Tiscali Siemens SE587 router


I have solved my problem, after researching various messageboards yesterday to try and discover why my Siemens Tiscali router didn't work. I'm going to send it back and go with another company!
It seems there has been a lot of debate on these messageboards about Tiscali and/or Siemens products and it now seems also that no one would recommend them. I hereby add my name to that list.
