    Thanks Slicenglide.That was quick. The problem is a new modem that does not allow me to connect the router cables . Do I require an adaptor? If so any suggestions? Thanks for the help.

  • diademers May 01, 2008

    My new modem has fewer ports, and connects more directly to my computor, which leaves my router with two loose cables with nothing to plug into:

    1. The Wan cable

    2. Port 1 cable

    Whatever adapters I had, I can no longer use. I need an adapter which will allow me to connect the router whitout disabling the new modem, or disrupt computor no.1's functions.

    Thanks for the help.

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.

How do I discover or reset the password


Your modem if it is a Speedstream 5200 does not have any wireless capability and as such, there is no need for a password. You can only use one computer connected with an ethernet cable to your computer. What you can do is purchase a wireless router, preferably a N series wireless router because it is stronger than a normal G series router. Normally your modem connects to your computer via the ethernet cable. With a wireless router, instead of plugging the modem to your computer you should plug it in router. From the router you can connect another ethernet cable and plug it in on your desktop. You can connect at least 4 wired computer to your router. For the wireless part, all they have to do is look for the strongest wireless signal then hit connect. If it ask for a password then it should be in the sticker at the side of the wireless router.

I recently had to have my Speedstream 5100 modem (surge damage?) that was connected to my Linksys BEFSR41. The new modem is a Westell ADSL2+ router. Ever since the change in modems, my Linksys BEFSR41...


Without a model number, it's difficult to tell you exactly how to resolve this issue. What you need to do is make sure that your modem is set to bridge mode. You'll need to plug directly into the modem, access the web interface that it uses (usually 192.168.0.1 or something similar) and set it to function as a bridge instead of a router. You should disable DHCP as well, but before you do that make sure you know how to do a full reset of the modem so that it will return to factory settings because disabling DHCP makes it tricky to access the web interface which means if you need to access it again later, you'll need to do a full reset.

I have a Speedstreams 5200 E242 modem. Installation stuck after modem connection. Is the 4.2.2.122 driver Windows 7 compatible? Where can I download the good driver for Win 7?


Hello,
If your router is connected via the Ethernet port no drivers are necessary.

If you don't have a good reason to use the USB port, please use the Ethernet since it's much faster.

Please let me know.

5200 speedstream blocks my peer to peer sites, mystic island game site, all bittorrent downloads and limewire


Hi Shepherd1880,

First thing:
The computer that you're using for these services needs to have a static IP address configured in your private network and not a DHCP address assigned by the router.

Secondly thing:
Depending on your security policies (computer firewall and/or router), you will need to sure that the settings from your router and/or your PC firewall are not blocking the ports that you need to connect for these services.

Once you know that you have this area covered, you can move forward with the necessary procedures to properly configure your Speedstream 5200 using the link below:

Hope this helps!
