E.F. Speedstream 5871 router


I just got a gob of "Efficient Networks" 5871 routers for free....
I'm getting conflicting info. off the web...can these only be used for IDSL...and not standard DSL?
Another seems I'll only be able to use this (just a simple home router application) by using it in PPPoe mode.... there's other options such as RFC -1490
..I don't know what this RFC stuffs about.. Is this correct?

I tried setting it up and selecting all the "automatically get" settings and still no internet/DSL connectivity. Thanks for your time.

You may be able to use these with "standard" DSL, which generally does require PPPoe (a username and password, basically). But you'd certainly need to have an ISP providing DSL service, the correct wiring drop to the device, and your DSL provider would need to support this particular device on their network.

These are not routers, per se, they are really just DSL modems.

How to install my speedstream 2602 router

If you mean IP address to access configuration through web browser, just connect an Ethernet cable from it to your machine, then in windows get details on your network connection and make note of the default gateway. That is the router's address usually, so just paste it into your web browser and you should be able to talk to it.

The default IP for that particular model is

I have siemens gigaset 504 AGU wi-fi modem. I am trying to connect this modem to my new broadband connection but it is not working. Please provide solution for this problem

You have to call your provider and let them know that you are putting on a new modem. they have to put all the new info into the system so the routers on there end let you in. If you have done that already reboot your router. Unplug it for 30 sec and then plug it back in. If still nothing then reset your router to factory default. you may have a conflict with the new modem.

Unable to delete route from Efficient Networks 5851 Router

Sorry to suggest this but since they don't make that unit any longer, it would be simplest to just replace it. The command set is not for the novice and you are correct nothing like Cisco IOS, you can still download the manual from
If I recall correctly, the default gateway is your default route on these units, been a few years since I have seen one.

Trying to remove a ip route on the 5871.

normally on router commands, in order to delete something you do not write del, but instead write out the command you would type to add the route with the word no in front of the line.

so if the command to add was eth ip addroute xx.xx.xx.xx xxx.xx.xx.xx 1

the command to take it off would be, no eth ip delroute xx.xx.xx.xx xxx.xx.xx.xx 1
