SOURCE: Siemens SpeedStream 6520 Wireless problems! please help

um not sure, but if you have the disk that came with your router run it and fill in the wireless wizard. Also, on my 6520 the "wireless" led doesnt light up unless i have a device connected that is wireless. Your laptop may be incorrectly setup

Well, I'm sorry that i could't to your help earlier.. Every device that is connected to the computer has to be recognized by the former, and hence the hardware that is connected comes with a utility CD.. Though most of the computers dont need and recognise the device on being connected....
If you were given any CD along with the product, make sure you install to prevent trouble and compatibility.....(Siemen 4100 modems dont carry any INSTALLATION SOFTWARES) Now to arrive at your problem,
Note: just connect it and troubleshoot as below:
1a. Your modem carries 5lights Power, Ethernet, DSL,Internet & Activity.
Once the modem is installed, the Power light and the Ethernet will glow by default after a transitory patch of  Power lights going from REDto blinking RED and then to Solid GREEN and the Ethernet also turning Solid GREEN.
If this happens, then the computer is LAN connected and just with a DSL connection can connect to the internet..
1b. If the Power light dont turn Solid GREEN, the two possibilities

  • the Power adapter is busted(if so get a new adapter) or
  • the Modem is Fried(if so change the modem, avail warranty if applicable)
Hope this solves your problem!!!!!!

SOURCE: Cannot connect to Internet

Hi

Looks like there is a problem with the modem, you can either connect through bridge mode or replace the modem from your ISP.

If u are still not able to connect then u have to check the loop length from the CO. if it is a dedicated loop then there is a problem with the line........

UNABLE TO CONNECT WITH MY LAP TOP ON INTERNET HAVE FOUR LIGHTS ON AND FIFTH ONE FLASHING JUST STARTED YESTERDAY.


So that means its working well and connected to the ISP' server. What is your connection? Is it ADSL?
First make sure that all light have the color of green. If they are Flashing with color RED that means the property associated with the light is having a failure.
Here are the description of Colors and Lights.
Modem Light state: Unlit Flashing Red Flashing Green Steady Green
Cases:::
Power Light
Modem is not getting power - no light Modem has failed POST - Red Power is on - Steady Green
Ethernet (2nd Light)
No Ethernet link detected - No light Problem with ethernet port or cable - Flashing Green Modem has detected a successful link to a PC or router - Steady Green
DSL (3rd light)
ADSL sync signal is not detected - Red Modem is trying to synchronize. - Flashing Green Modem has ADSL sync and is ready for PPPoE session traffic - Steady Green.
Internet (4th light)
Modem has given up or isn't configured to initiate the PPPoE session - No Light PPPoE initiation has failed or PPPoE has been terminated. - Red Initiating a PPPoE session to Internet - Flashing Green. Modem is ready for Internet traffic - Steady Green.
Note: This light sometimes not working even if the connection initiated.
Activity
Normal DSL traffic flow - Flashing Green. Steady traffic flow - Steady Green.
Solving problems.
Case1: You have to connect your machine to the Modem Via the Network cable. Plug the other side of the cable to your Machine. (Not the modem port. Network card port.). Case2: You have to make sure that you have installed the Network Card drives. To check that you have to use Device Manager. Follow these steps. Hit Windows key with R In the "Run" box type devmgmt.msc In the right hand side check whether the network card is installed. If it has a yellow exclamation mark or a mark with red that means you haven't either installed or its having a device/driver problem.
Case3: If its fine then what you have to do is to check your network settings. Heres how: Since you haven't specified the Operating System I m including the Windows XP method here. Not much difference in other Operating Systems as well.
  • Get the Control Panel.
  • Go to Network and Internet Connections.
  • Go to Network Connections.
  • Check the Local Area Connection.
  • Right Click and check "Status".
  • If it says connected
  • Check the Duration and Speed(100 or 1000Mbps).
  • If the settings are fine go to "Support" Tab.
  • Check whether the Machine has received an IP Address. Which is often in the range of 192.168.254.xxx for Siemens Modems/Routers.
  • If you see an IP Address which starts from 169.xxx.xxx.xxx your network card was unable to pick an IP Address from the DHCP router which runs in the modem. (If you run a DHCP in the machine you have to configure to stop leasing IP Addresses to your machine from the Router/Modem. You can try the "Repair" button below and it will try to Release and Renew your IP. If it fail either you have a problem with your network card or Modem/Router (Could be the cable also).
  • If you still see the IP Address which starts with 192.168 the connection with your Modem is fine.
  • Next: Right Click on the Local Area Connection again.
  • Go to "Properties".
  • Double Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  • Check the settings.
  • The settings should be "Obtain IP Addresses Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically". (But if you know the router's/Modem's IP Address you can configure it and you can give a "Static IP" to your PC as well. It must not be the Router's / Modem's IP and must be in th SAME SUBNET. If router uses 192.168.254.xxx you can assign it as 192.168.254.2)
  • Then Apply the Settings and go to the "Status" again and then click on "Details".
  • Except Wins Server all others must be populated with values in 192.168 range. Check the "Default Gateway" Setting. Its very important that you have pointed the machines Default Gateway to the Router/Modem.
  • Final Check:
  • Go to the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) again and click on "Advanced".
  • Check IP Settings (first tab) too make sure DHCP is enabled on you machine.
  • Go to "Options" tab and Check TCP/IP Filtering. Click on properties and make sure that the Filtering is not enabled. If it enabled make sure your network adapter Permits all routers traffic in to the machine.
By following these options will let you surf the internet.
Check for the behaviors of indicators as well.
Case 3 :Browser settings
In the Internet Explorer go to: Tools -> Internet Options ->Connections -> LAN Settings -> Its fine if any box is not checked. Or you can check the "Automatic Detection".
Last thing is If you have a Firewall or Antivirus Suite Please make sure that you are not blocking adapters and traffic/application. You can try to disable Windows Firewall and check whether it works as well.
Hope this will solve your issue. Please be kind enough to rate the answer with a comment (testimonial) if this helps you to overcome the issue. Feel free to contact us further. Thanks for contacting Fixya

Internet


Well, I understand that the modem is SS4100, which means ther are
5lights on it being, Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet & Activity....
Note:The trouble shooting is done according to the Light Status on the modem.
1. No matter what the proble is, the first step is to Power Cycle the modem to eliminate the static on the modem(to switch it off and back on).
2. If the Power Light is anything other than a solid green, then the modem is fried(except the fact that the adapter is plugged and working).
3. If the Power is green and Ethernet is off, then check for the LAN cable at the back 
of the computer if its connected to the modem.(It turns green if connected properly)
4. If the DSL light is anything other than solid green, then call up the ISP tech's to ask why the intenet is not working.
(make sure the DSL cable is plugged firmly onto the back of the modem and the wall jack)
5. If the Power, Ethernet and the DSL is green and the internet is not, the open up the Modem page(type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar and enter for the modem page), and cross-check for the username and the password. Save the changes and your internet is working!!!
6.  The Activity light usually blinks green and it does't have much to do with the troubleshooting.
The above are the basic troubleshooting steps.
Hope it solves your problem......

Constantly blinking Activity light


Well, you are very correct with the activity light blinking and the increased blinking except the fact that modem will encounter a problem in future...
The 5 different lights on your modem namely Power, Ethernet, DSL, Internet and Activity have their own indications and explanations.
1. The Activity Light indicates the amount of activity that is takin place on the computer on the Internet though the activity might blink even when you are not browsing. This can be explained by stating that the computer constantly keep sending signals  about it being connected to the internet and any other acknowledgements..

So, you've got nothing worry about unless the Power or the Ethernet or the DSL or the Internet light Blinks....
Cause they are the resultants of a fried modem(check for the adapter), faulty LAN connections, interrupted Dsl line and the account verification failure indications respectively.....
