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.

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.
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.
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.
if you are using a siemens 4100 modem alone.. siemens 4100 modem has no wireless capabilty unless there is a wireless router plugged in..
if you already have a wireless router.. the SECURITY CODE shud be provided by your wireless provider
REMEMBER: SIEMENS SPEEDSTREAM is not wireless capable
um not sure, but if you have the disk that came with your router run it and fill in the wireless wizard. Also, on my 6520 the "wireless" led doesnt light up unless i have a device connected that is wireless. Your laptop may be incorrectly setup
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.
