Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

1 Answer

Speedstream exceptionally slow

We have a Speedstream Effecient Network modem and are using it with a Linksys wireless. We also have D-link on several computers.

Everything was fine for a while, then the Internet connection got slower and slower. Now we can't connect to most Web sites, including our bank?

What's the problem and how do we fix it?

    Thanks. We called the provider, ATT. Totally useless. Spent 90 minutes on the phone with them and left with nothing. Ugh. We will try your suggestion and let you know.

Who is your broadband provider?

Make sure you have set the MTU right in the modem, if this is set wrong it will stop you accessing certain website especially secure websites i.e online banks & possibly windows update. Most providers use MTU 1458, aol used to user 1400 now recommend 1450.

I have a 4100. Can it be used wireless?


This modem that you have don;t have a wireless capability, but if you like to have a wireless network using this modem you need to get a wireless router that will be connected to the modem and the wireless router will be the one that is going to be transmitting the wireless signal for your wireless computers.

You can go and get a wireless broadband router from this manufacturer Linksys, Netgear , Belkin and Dlink , they make a good wireless router that can be use with your modem.

How do I configure for wireless?


Siemens Speedstream 4100 is just a modem, if you want to connect to the internet wireless you will need to set up your speedstream modem with a wireless router.
It can work with almost all the wireless routers available in the market, but I would recommend a Linksys wireless router.

Speedstream 4200 and Linksys WRT54G router


there are several types of patch cables, but basically there are 2 general types: one for servers (they keep the websites) and for computers.
the servers need to communicate with each other in order to be in sync. so some cables are switched in one end.
The computers just want to receive and send data; it does not care about sync.

Speedstream modem extremely slow


Try unplugging the router for 30 seconds, that usually does the trick for me. If not, you may have a software problem on your PC...spyware, etc.

Connecting one network to another?


This is what I would do I would connect the wireless to the internet direct and allow all PC with wireless capabilities to access the net through that wireless irrespective to where I place the wireless router.  Alternative I would link the cable on on the second floor the one you use for the PC to access the net to access the the wireless it should automatic allocate IP addresses as each machine accesses the network.  The speed of that wirless is decreased as each wireless PC comes on line.
