The other unit needs a wireless adapter to talk to the router wirelessly

make sure that the wireless function is turned on in the router software ,

you need to enter an IP address in the internet explorer to get into the router, (this should be in the manual or printed on the base of the unit).

you will need to enter a user name and password, (read the manual for these), sometimes, admin admin ,or admin password)

if you used a security key, make sure it is in the wireless software, of the wireless pc/laptop

good luck
Terry

Cannot connect ps3 to Gigaset SE587 router


Before you test you connection see what the percentage of the connection is, if it's less then %50 it won't work with wireless unless you move it into a place with a better connection

I have a siemens gigaset se572 wlan dsl box. my lap top is aksing for the security key or passphrase, does anyone know where to find it? Thanks


You should be able to log into the router by opening an internet window and typing 192.168.1.1

Username: admin
Password: admin

(Unless it's been changed.) The WEP Key will be in there under a section for Security.

Can siemens speedstream 4200 be used with wifi antenna. do not want dsl.


The Siemens is a DSL modem and doesn't meet with your requirements.
Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

I just recieved my Siemens Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl router and i set it up but the only light coming on is the power light,is the router faulty or damaged?


Are all the cables connected correctly?
Are the DSL settings in?

If it's only the power light, and no WLAN, LAN, DSL or Internet lights on, it sounds like it may be faulty. Is it brand new or second hand?

Hi...unable to connect to ps3 using siemans gigaset se587 wireless router


hi there,
first you need to make sure u can access your wireless router with no problems and the wireless is turned on for your ps-3...then u need to forward some ports...

Turn on PS3 and goto Settings, Network Settings.
Select Internet Connections. If it asks you want to be disconnected select Yes. Select EASY. Select wireless

Select SCAN this will take a few minutes. The PS3 should find your router and already have the SSID# so just type in your WEP key. Select save and then wait a couple of minutes then select test. It should hook up.

If it hooks up with NAT3 then you will have to enable UPnP on you router. type in http://192.168.1.1 on your computers web browser.

username: admin
password: admin

Click on the advanced tab and then on Universal plug n play and then make sure both check boxes are marked.

Then on the PS3 make sure the UPnP is enabled also in the network settings.

This should give you network and NAT2.

please try this link for port forwarding help:-

Siemens gigaset se587 4 port wireless router will not connect to my computer. Error code 106 keeps comming up. any solutions?


Go into 'control panel' then 'network connections' and right click on your 'local area connection'. Select 'internet protocol' at the bottom of the list and click on 'properties'. Ensure that 'Obtain an IP address automatically' is selected. Run through the installation disk again and my guess is it will work. Despite this being relatively simple no one at tiscali suggested this over the course of 2 weeks which I found astonishing.
