Question about Efficient Networks SpeedStream 5100 Modem

1 Answer

Trying to use SpeedStream 5100 with new DSL Provider

We moved from SBC/AT&T service area to CenturyTel. Rather than leasing a DSL Modem from CenturyTel, I was hoping to use the SpeedStream 5100 that I purchased through SBC/AT&T. Also have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router that I want to rehook back up to DSL Modem. It all worked with SBC/AT&T as my provider - how can I make it work with CenturyTel? I have naturally tried both company's tech support but they keep pointing their finger at each other. I found this link -- is this a good start even though it is a Speedstream 4100

Thank you for any assistance someone can provide me.

1. In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.
2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.
3. At the login screen type in your SBC/AT&T member ID and password.
4. Click Connect.
5. If everything is successful you will get a screen that says, "You Are Connected." and your Internet light will go solid green. If you username or password is invalid you will get a screen stating such. If there are other problems you will get a screen stating, "The DSL connection is down."
