  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    I'm having problems tring to connect to ATT HS DSL, flashing green light but can not connect to internet, what settings on DSL-2640B do I need???


    If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
    If that works then the modem is working.
    Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
    You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
    You can set up the router without the CD also.
    It is very easy.

    No activity on my new speedstream 4200


    Ethernet and DSL lights are indicating you have ADSL available on your line, and that you have computers connected to the router.

    What has probably happened is that Optus did not set up the new router with your username and password. Go to thw following website for details on how to setup the modem.

    http://help.optuszoo.com.au/help/dsl/connected/windows/optus_modems/speedstream_4200



    Manual Modem Settings The Optus DSL Broadband self-installation CD configures all the necessary settings for your DSL Broadband service. You do not need to manually configure your modem if you have run the self-installation CD. While the following information is provided for your reference, using the self-installation CD is the recommended method for configuring your modem.
    The Siemens SpeedStream 4200 ADSL modem can use either USB or Ethernet to connect to your computer.
    • If you are connecting via USB you will need to run the self-installation CD to install the USB driver before you connect your modem. The Siemens SpeedStream 4200 ADSL modem supplied by Optus has been customised for the Optus DSL Broadband service. Only the USB driver supplied on the self-installation CD will work with the Optus service. If you do not have the self-installation CD, you can download the latest drivers from the Siemens website.
    • If you are connecting via Ethernet it is possible to manually configure your modem without the self-installation CD. Only a web browser is required.
    After connecting your modem there are two key steps to manually configure your modem for the Optus DSL Broadband service:
    • PC settings - Configure your computer's Ethernet network interface.
    • Configure Your Modem - Set the password in your modem's configuration pages.

    PC Settings Step by step instructions are provided for each of the supported Windows operating systems:
    • Windows 98/Me
    • Windows 2000
    • Windows XP
    • Windows Vista
    top
    Configure Your Modem To configure your modem settings you must now access the configuration manager using your web browser. This is done by entering the IP address in the address bar of the browser window as follows:
    Note: If you are updating the password in your modem, please complete steps 1 to 3 only.
    Step 1 of 5
    • Enter http://10.1.1.1 (Default IP address of the Optus Supplied Siemens SpeedStream 4200) to access the modem Configuration software. You may wish to add this page to your Favorites for easy access later.
    • The following modem System Summary screen will appear.
    ss4200_home_disconnected.gif Step 2 of 5
    • Click on the word Setup in the green menu of options on the left side of the web page. An expanded set of options will be displayed.
    • Click PPP in the list of options that appeared below the word Setup.
    • The ISP Password page will appear:
    ss4200_ppp.gif
    • Replace the default username (john_citizen@optusnet.com.au) with the username provided for you by Optus DSL Broadband.
    • Replace the default password with the password provided by Optus DSL Broadband in the Password field.
    • Note: You will find your Optus DSL Broadband username and password on the letter you received with your self-installation kit.
    • Save these details by clicking the Save Settings button.
    Step 3 of 5
    • The next screen will ask you to disconnect and reconnect to the Optus DSL Broadband service.
    ss4200_ppp_reconnect.gif
    • Click the link to return to the System Summary page.
    ss4200_reboot_3.gif
    • Click the Disconnect button to disconnect the modem from the Optus DSL Broadband service. The text on the button will change to Connect.
    ss4200_home_disconnected.gif
    • Click Connect to reconnect the modem to the Optus DSL Broadband service.
    Step 4 of 5
    • Click on the word Setup in the green menu of options on the left side of the web page. An expanded set of options will be displayed.
    • Click the word Mode in the green menu of options on the left side of the web page.
    ss4200_mode.gif
    • Confirm that Optus Bridge is the selected operation mode.
    • If Optus Bridge is not selected click the radio button next to Optus Bridge to select it.
    • Click the Apply button.
    Step 5 of 5 ss4200_reboot_1.gif
    • Click the Reboot button to restart the modem using your saved settings.
    ss4200_reboot_2.gif
    • After about a minute the modem will return to an operational state and connect to the Optus DSL Broadband service.
    ss4200_reboot_3.gif Once the modem has rebooted and the ADSL connection has been successfully established the DSL LED indicator will light steady green.
    Your modem is now connected to the Optus DSL Broadband service.

    Confuguration Issue


    You seem to be following the correct procedure, so the only thing left to do is re-set the router. My best guess is that the router password was inadvertently changed at some point. Reset to default settings: The following reset procedure will completely restore the default settings on the router including your password. Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit. Step 2 With the router powered on, press and hold the Reset button. Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds. Step 4 Release the Reset button. Step 5 The device is now at factory defaults. The default username is admin and leave the password blank. You'll need to follow all the steps you performed initially to re-connect to your ISP.

    AOL DSL Plus


    AOL DSL+ now uses PPPoE for authentication bypassing the client software. To set up your router: Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration of your router by opening a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape and enter the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1). Enter admin for username and then your password (blank by default). Configure the WAN side to use PPPoE. Please consult your manual for login instructions since all routers are not the same. Step 2 Enter your screen name followed by @aol.com for the user name. Enter your AOL password in the password box. Step 3 You will have to set the MTU to 1400. AOL DSL does not allow for anything higher than 1400. Step 4 Apply settings. Step 5 Unplug (turn off) the power to the modem and router. Wait 1 minute and then power on only the modem. Wait about 1 minute and then power on the router. NOTE: If you connect to the Internet with a different Internet service provider and want to use the AOL software, you can do that without configuring the router?s firewall settings. You need to configure the AOL software to connect using TCP/IP (LAN). Contact AOL for more specific configuration information of their software.
