    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 connect a netgear wireless router to comcast modem


Unplug your Comcast modem from your electrical outlet. Connect the Ethernet cord from the back of your Comcast modem into the Ethernet port labeled "Internet" on your new router. Connect an available Ethernet port from the back of the new router to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer.


Plug your cable modem into an electrical outlet. Plug your new router in an electrical outlet.


Reboot your computer. Click on "Start," then "Control panel." Click "Network and sharing." Select "Set up a new home network."

Click on the option for a router or cable modem when prompted by Windows to select your hardware. Your computer will attempt to access your new router. When the brand name for your router is listed, double-click it so your computer can configure itself to the new router.


Create a new name for your home network and create a unique password to prevent unauthorized users on your network. Your computer may reset your Comcast modem and router so your new changes can take effect.

Hi I need help with my modem settings. It is siemens speedstream 4200. I am told in forums I need to open ports to solve my problems.. but cannot successfully do it. PS3 will only give a NAT3 connection...


Do you have the device hooke up directly to the speadstream 4200? As the Speedstream 4200 is a modem most companies already have this device in bridged mode because it is largely understood that if this device enters a home it will be shared. That being said do you have a router? if so your task will be that much more easier if you are going to purchase a router please ensure that you buy a good one as gaming can be quite intensive and some routers do not do so well when it comes to this..

Depending on your ISP if you place the PS3 in DMZ you may have to registar the mac address with them before they allow it on the network. As of now they probably have the Speedstream modem registered and this is why you do not have access to online gaming in DMZ.

I have a speedstream modem and it is causing static in the phone line. There are filters fitted to all three phones on the line. If I unplug the modem the noise disappears. Do I need a new modem? Any...


Contacted Bigpond And was advised that I needed a model No C10245m filter.
The filter that I have is C10245e. Hopefully this will cure the problem.

If you want to access the internet with two computer, the easiest thing to do is to get a broadband router where the two computer will be connected so they can access the internet at the same time, you can get a Linksys router like this model BEFSR41 or a wireless router so you dont need a cable connected to your computer the model is WRT54G...

Hope that helps..........

Will The LinkSys Router Model No: BEFSR41 Slow Down My New Laptop ?


Nope your computer is independent from the router and the only thing that will influence speed is how fast the router is in relation to your old one and your internet connection.
