I have a speedstream 4100b modem and yesterday after the powere flicked on and off a couple of times I lost my DSl connection. The power light and eternet lights are still solid green, no other light are lite. I tried hitting the reset button, restarting the computer, powering down and unplugging the modem. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Ok, so I am slow. Type the ip default gateway (please clarify) into your browser (got that part) then in the sppedStream Management interface (don't understand) just click the reboot button (is that the reset button on the modem?) I have a feeling that this is an easy solution I just don't understand the directions.

    So ok let me get this straight. I sign on to my browser like I want to get on the internet, then I go and find the speedstream management interface in program menu. I will then click the reboot button and then I am fixed.

  • dtkane Mar 06, 2008

    It didn'y work because I cannot find the speedstream management interface. Any hints?

    I got exactly the same problem on the same modom. I think the modom is die because it didn't act as a DHCP server. My PC didn't have the correct IP (192.168.x.x), and I could not talk to the modem through the browser.

Troubleshooting DSL Modems


Ever look at your DSL Modem and wonder what all those lights mean? Why do some flash, while others remain solid? What if your lights are different colors? How do you tell if your DSL Modem is working correctly?<br /> <br /> Each light on your DSL Modem represents a function. The light is an indication of whether that function is working properly. Sometimes the placement and title of each function can vary by modem manufacturer, but they are pretty standard in interpetation. If you look closely your modem, you might find that each function is labeled in small print to help identify them.<br /> <br /> A standard DSL Modem has a light for power, internet, ethernet, link and wireless connection. A healthy DSL Modem will have a steady green light that does not blink or flutter for all features other than internet, ethernet and wireless. A flashing or fluttering light indicates movement and useage. When you are connected to your DSL Modem wireless, the light for this feature will blink indicating a connection and/or active useage. If the internet connection is working properly the color of the light will be green. If the connection is working but experincing a problem the light can turn to yellow or orange. If the connection fails, the light on the DSL Modem can be red or absent depending on the problem causing the trouble. If your service is turned off by the provider, more than likely the light will be "off".<br /> <br /> If your lights turn a different color, are absent or your internet connection fails try power cycling your modem before reporting the trouble to your provider. Power cycling helps the DSL Modem to reset its connection and repair your internet services.<br /> <br /> If you are using a DSL Modem alone to connect to the internet (no additional router) you can power cycle it by first turning off your computer and then unplug the modem itself from the power source at the wall. Wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then plug it back into the power source and wait for the warm up to finish before rebooting the pc.<br /> <br /> The DSL Modem should go through the normal warm up procedures of blinking lights, making them all stable and solid green ect. You will know when its finished warming up when the features are set at solid green (other than eithernet, internet and wireless connection as explained above). When the modem finished the warm up, reboot your computer and check your internet connection.<br /> <br /> Power cycling your DSL Modem can help keep your connection healthy and running at optimal speeds.<br />

My modem sometimes work and sometime show only two lights i.e. power and ethernet and do not connect to my dsl internet


Do you know if you have line issues with your phone company? If you're at the outer edges of DSL range from the Central Office, your connection might be dropping. The fact that the power and ethernet lights stay lit shows that the connection might not be on your end. Does the connection get reestablished when you reboot the modem? You may have to get your provider to do connectivity tests on your line.

Lost internet connection. I use BT Voyager 190 ADSL modem on AOL with WIndows Vista. Power and Thernet indicator lights are on solid, but DSL and Internet indicators are off.


Sounds like there is a issue with your phone line. The DSL indicator is the phone line. Check to see if you have a dial tone or if a message is on the phone you haven't listen too, if you have message service. Try unplugging all phone connections as and replug them in again. You also might need a filter for your DSL to phone line. Also if you have an alarm that is monitoring your system, you need to by pass alarm and use a filter.

I have a new modem: model speedstream 5200, now I can't connect my router: Linskeys model BEFSR41


Your router and DSL modem probably both are set to the same IP address:
192.168.1.1

Change one of them to 192.168.1.2(I'm suggesting the Linksys)
and it should fix the problem and have them both working again.

We recently got high speed internet from Qwest. It will not work. It keeps saying that the can't "ping" it. All light are green; power DSL, and the Ethernet. The internet is not. I have...


The DSL router/modem will receive an address from your ISP (Qwest) and will assign an address to the connected PC.

There should be a cable that goes from your DSL modem to your PC. It'll either be a USB cable (flat rectangular plug on the PC end), or a RJ45 (looks like a wider telephone plug).

If there is neither connection between the DSL modem and your PC, then the PC can't "talk" to the DSL modem, so it's not getting an address from the DSL modem.
