You need to connect your router to modem with the existing ehternet cable from wan post in the back of the router to modem port. After powering up the router, use an ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the ports on it marked 1 through

Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. This will take you to the Netgear Smart Wizard welcome page, click OK to begin the configuration. The router will attempt to detect the type of connection you have and the next message you receive should be Dynamic IP (DHCP) Detected, click Next once you see this.

Next you will enable the wireless capability of your router. In the dropdown box for the region where you are located select United States from the list. On this screen you should also change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from its default value to something unique so that your Base Station will not be confused with another. Click Next. You should now see a message confirming that your connection is working and wireless is enabled. However, your are not secured yet. Read the notes and click Done.

Then direct your browser to http://www.routerlogin.net to continue the configuration. A window will pop up prompting you for your login and password, enter admin for the username and password for the password, then click OK.

Once you have logged in you will see the main configuration page (shown above). Now click on the Wireless Settings at the left of the page. In order to password protect your wireless network select the WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) option under the Security Options and then under the Security Encryption (WEP) section that appears, select 128 bit next to Encryption Strength. Choose a password between 6 and 8 characters and type it into the Passphrase box under the Security Encryption (WEP) Key heading. Then click Generate. Finally click Apply. You may also select WPA encryption, however not all network cards support this, so check your documentation first.Once you have finished, click the Apply button.


Finally click on the Set Password link on the left of the page under the Maintenance heading. Change the default password for accessing your wireless router setup pages by first typing the old one, password, into the appropriate field and then entering a new one into the New Password field and confirming it. This should be a different password than the one you setup for WEP encryption, but should also be atleast 6 to 8 characters in length. Click the Apply button.Your Netgear Wireless Router is now secure.

Contact AT&T DSL support for help in getting your network to work. And do not believe them if they tell you your modem is no good. They want to shut down their DSL service and will go to any length, lying included, to get people to change over to their fiber optic system.

Need to telnet or web into speedstream 5360 modem


I believe the default IP address for those is 192.168.254.254 and the login and password are both admin. If that address doesn't get you to the login screen, do the following.

1. Go to start>run
2. Type cmd and hit enter
3. Type ipconfig
4. Write down the default gateway address
5. Type that address into your web browser and see if it connects to the gui now.

If that doesn't help let me know and I'll keep digging for the manual but wow is it hard to find anything about it online.

INSTALL A MODEM


The 5360 is techncially a bridge, not a modem, so it doesn't require software drivers for installation and operation.
There is a 5360 firmware upgrade, but it should only be used in certain situations -- see Related Articles at right for further information.

Note that DSL and cable bridges are often called "modems" because that is the familiar term for a device that connects the residential user to the ISP.
