Hi there, Please follow these steps to set up your a wireless network with your Siemens Speedstream 6520 Wireless Modem.
To create a wireless network you first need to enable the wireless functionality of the router. To do this you need to connect the router by an Ethernet cable to your computer. Once the wireless modem is plugged into your computer via Ethernet and turned on please follow these steps to enable the wireless functionality.
If you have already enabled your wireless network please click here to go to the instructions to connect a new computer to the wireless network.

  1. Open Internet Explorer or your preferred browser.
  2. In the address bar type 192.168.254.254 then press enter.
  3. This will bring up the main page for the Router.
  4. Once the start up page has loaded you will then need to login by clicking on the "Go" button in the top left of the window.
  5. This will bring up the Login page. Once the page has loaded please enter the username username and your password, then click "Log In".

Note: The default password is "admin", although this may have changed if you have changed the password.
This will bring you to the following page.
Once this page has loaded click on "Home Network" and then click "Advanced".
Once the new page has loaded you will have a list of links, please click on the "Configure the Local Speedstream Gateway Wireless Network" link.
This will bring up a new page called "Wireless Summary".

    This will bring up the "Wireless 64-Bit WEP Configuration" page.
    On this page you will need to enter a passphrase to generate your WEP keys. We have used "icecream" but you can use anything. Once you have entered a phrase click "Generate Key".

    This will generate four 64 Bit Key's. Please select any one of the four keys and click "Next".
    Note: You will need the 64 Bit Key that you select in the future for devices to log on to the wireless network. Make sure you can remember your chose a passphrase that you will remember.
    Once you have clicked "Next" a new page will load called "Wireless Filter Configuration". This is an advanced page for allowing access and denying access to certain computers or devices. We have set the "Wireless Filter" mode to "Disable".

    Please click on the "Next" button to bring you to the "Wireless Options Configuration Page".
    On this page pleas make sure that:
    "Data Transfer Rate:" is set to "Auto"
    "RTS/CTS Threshold:" is set to "2432"
    "Fragmentation Threshold:" is set to "2346"
    Once these setting are correct please click "Next" to bring up the "Wireless Wizard" page.
    Once this page has loaded, you have finished enabling your wireless network so click "Finish".
    This will bring up the "Wireless Summary" page again, but next to where it says "State" it should say "Enabled". Please ensure your settings are the same as the screen shot below ("SSID" and "Security Key Info" may be different").
    If all these details are the same please click on the "Reboot" button to save the changes, and then once the new page loads click on "Reboot" to restart the router.
    Once your modem has fully rebooted, please close your browser.
    You are now able to unplug the Ethernet cable from the router and the computer.
    How to connect other computers to your wireless network
    On the computer you want to connect to the wireless network please follow these steps.
    Once your browser is closed please click on the "Start" menu on the bottom of your screen, the click on "All Programs", hover over "Accessories", then hover over "Communications" and then click on "Network Connections".
    Once "Network Connections" has opened under where it says "LAN or High-Speed Internet" please right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then click "View Available Wireless Networks".
    This should load the "Wireless Network Connection" window, and you should be able to see the wireless network you have set up.
    Note: If there is nothing in your list you will need to click the "Refresh network list" button.

    Once you see your network, make sure it is highlighted and then click "Connect".
    Once you have clicked "Connect" it will ask you for your "Network Key". Please enter your 10 character key next to where it says "Network Key" and then retype the 10 character key where it says "Confirm Network Key".
    Note: Your "Network Key" is the 64 Bit Key that you generated with a passphrase in step 16.
    Once you have entered and confirmed your network key click on connect.

    If everything is successful, the "Wireless Network Connections" window should say "Connected" next to your wireless network that you set up.
    You should now be able to browse the internet.

    The reset button is a small button located next to the port where you would plug the cable into, it has the word RESET written on it.

Login using username and password->click "Wireless Security" and Select "WEP" as the security encryption type.

Set the default transmit key to "1."

Type in a passphrase and click "Generate". This generates random passkeys.

You can note down your network's SSID (listed on the security page) and the first WEP key.

I HAVE SPEEDSTREAM 6520 AND WANT TO CHANGE MY WIFI PASSWORD BUT THE PROBLEM IS I LOST MY ADMIN PASSWORD IT IS ASKING WHN I WANT TO CONFIGURE HOW DO I GET MY PASSWORD BAC AND GO FURTHER WITH MY CONFIGURING...


The only way to get in to the router without password is to reset it to factory reset. RESET will bring all the settings back to what it was when you got it out of the box. Any custom settings will be lost and you will need to input them back in to settings (like your wireless network name or SSID, password and any open ports). Reset is done by pushing is little reset button (little round hole) that is usually on the back of the router and most times it says reset or it is different color than color of the router. You can use a pen or little screw driver but make sure not to press too had so you don't damage it. Router needs to be on and then when you push in the reset you need to hold it in for 30 seconds (make sure it is 30 per clock not just your count to make sure it worked). Once time is up just remove the pen or what ever you used and you can now log in to your router with default user name and password. This is probably on the paperwork you got with the router. If you don't have it just Google your model and most times you can find it there. If not you might have to call support and just ask them. Hope this helps.

I need to retrieve my password on the Speedstream 6520 Router so I can log in wireless with my iphone.


not possible to retrieve a password! that's why they are secure... if you have your ISP ADSL setup details you can reset the router to factory default and reprogram it from scratch, or call their help desk BEFORE you do it and ask them to email you the connection details before you start. then WRITE the password on a label and stick it to the router.

How do i make my speedstream 6520 wireless?


"If your PC has not been connected to a broadband modem or other network device, you will need to
perform the PC configuration procedure below. Remember to restart each PC when finished. If your
PC has been connected to a broadband modem or other network device, continue to the “Using the
Wireless Connection” section below.
1. Start your Web browser. In the Address box, enter the following: »speedstream.
2. Press Enter. The SpeedStream Simple Setup Wizard will launch.
3. When prompted, enter the Internet connection information provided by your
Internet Service Provider.
4. At the end of the Setup Wizard, you will be given the option to either connect to
the Internet or further configure the optional settings of the gateway.
5. If additional configuration is desired, select the icon for the service or option
you wish to configure: the gateway’s firewall and security settings, User
Profiles and content filtering, or home network options."

"Using the Wireless Connection
By default, the SpeedStream® Gateway is configured to work
seamlessly with other SpeedStream® wireless products. The default
wireless interface settings are:
SSID: SpeedStream
Channel: 11
Mismatched wireless settings will prevent successful
wireless network connections between devices, so
you may need to reconfigure some wireless settings
to ensure that all settings match between wireless
devices if you are:
a) Using another manufacturer’s wireless products
b) Adding the SpeedStream® Gateway to an existing
wireless network
The Setup Wizard will walk you through setting up wireless settings."

Unable to connect to speedstream 6520 adsl router


At this point to access the router you'll want to hard wire your computer with a network cable. If you have reset it and it was sucessful you can open your browser and type the default ip. possibly 192.168.1.1. If you can get into it go over your options and fix whats necessary. Then reconnect your wireless the same way you did the first time you set it up.
