Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)

1 Answer

Telephone line noisy & faint. Dial-up modem not working. Line volts drops to 9 (plus nine). Modem works fine at a friends & their line volts drops to -12 (minus twelve). Since the modem works else where but not on 01827830918 I'm thinking the fault must be with the line.... Also at friends house the modem signal is about 800mV peak to peak, but at our house it is half this. Can you help please?

Its probably comming from the wire plugged into between your modem and the wall.

Replace it with a new line and see if the hiss goes away.

HP Officejet 6500 no longer hears the dialtone. The line works fine with a regular phone, but not the printer. Up until a couple of days ago, it worked fine. The printer says the line is in use (wh


Usually on hook telephone line voltage around 40V DC +/- depends on exchange, voltage will drops below 12VDC if its half hook..You will get engage tone/usage tone if voltage drops less than 12V, in this condition you wont get any incoming calls.
You need to open the printer formatter to locate the modem where telephone line inserted..
Let understand why this malfunction happens..
The ring voltage between the line is +120V AC, but it should not exceed more than 200V.. To protect the circuit, line will guarded by component called "VARISTOR". The Varistor will burns if voltage reaches specified or more voltage across it.. Once varistor burns U will get engage tone always... Basic multimeter is enough to check the varistor, put multimeter in diode mode, test both ends of varistor, it should not show zero value or beeping. Some times it may burn, blast or bulge. Remove the faulty component from the circuit with the help of soldering iron, connect the line & verify, if line is good replace with same rating of component.. Chk for the ring & dial tone...
Req tools: Multimeeter, soldering iron, little paste & Led, screw driver set for opening the printer..
Depends on design varistor may fix accordingly which we need to find out the location.. But its always fixed between line in path. pl see the attached sample diagram.
if you are non technical pl don,t try it...Best of luck.. 6f4a7950-5cc9-42c6-bb47-b2ba2007add0.jpg 21aa8d50-de72-49d9-a692-6c813c2c0768.jpgEx: Varistor ac224650-2c77-4de1-934f-929cbd6f0d15.jpg Damaged/burnt varistor

Tip

Linking your system connection to Air


TEMAB COMPUTERS ICT

You moving to the world of internetworking, as in you connecting your system with a dial up or modem so you can access the internet from your home, office and everywhere you may be the following are to be considered .
1. A computer. In order to use dial-up you must make sure not only that you have a computer but that it is going to work with your dial-up service. Some ISP's do not require that you install any software to get connected, so just about any computer would work. However, if they do require that you download their software or run a CD to start their service, you need to make sure that their software is compatible with your service.
For example, your computer may not have a CD drive if it's a compact laptop. Or perhaps you have an older operating systems like Windows 95 or 98. Many installations are not compatible with these older computers. If you have a Mac or Linux computer, you must make sure that the ISP will be compatible with it, or it might not work. If you are using the modem that came with the computer you have to make sure that the modem is installed or updated enough that it will not cause slow connections. Check with a computer technician if you are not sure there is a modem or that it's in good working order.
2. A modem. If your computer does not have a modem, or you wish to use a separate external modem, make sure that it is the correct type of modem. It must be a dial-up modem--broadband modems will not work. Also make sure that your modem is going to be compatible with the services you would like to have on your dial-up. For example, if you would like to add an Internet Call-waiting feature on your dial-up service, you need to have a V.92 standard computer. Otherwise you will not be able to be notified of incoming calls while you are online. Also, if the modem is not in proper working order, for example, it is missing it's latest driver software or has been damaged or corrupted, you will not be able to use it. Thirdly, if the modem is too old and does not have the latest standard, it may not connect as fast as a new one would, so if you know your modem is not V.92, you may need to get a new one so you can get better connection speeds.
3. A land-line telephone. This means your phone line must be an analog phone--cable phones, digital phones, and (usually) cellphones will not work. Dial-up uses analog phone lines because of how it converts and transmits information. It's just like a normal telephone. If you try to use dial-up on any other type of phone, you will get an error connecting because the modem cannot detect the analog dial-tone. Check with your phone provider if you are not sure if it is compatible to dial-up. Also, keep in mind that you will not be able to use your phone and the Internet at the same time, so if you wish to keep your phone line free for telephone calls, you may need to add a second line to your home. However, if you don't want two lines, simply add call waiting and caller ID to you land line and if you have a V.92 modem, you should be notified of incoming calls while you're online.
4. A telephone cord. This may sound silly, but some people do forget about this step. In order to have Internet through dial-up, you must have a phone cord attached from the back of the modem or the back of your computer to the phone jack in the wall. You might want to get a splitter so your phone line can share the phone jack with your computer, or you might be able to connect your computer to your phone or vice versa, using the "line in" and "line out" jacks on the phone or on the back of the computer.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that your telephone cord needs to be as short as possible. Any cord longer than 6 feet could affect your ability to connect to the Internet, or affect how fast you can connect. The longer the cord the more likely you are to have slow or dropped connections. Also, you may need to get a back up phone cord in case the cord you intend to use is damaged. If you buy a new modem, an extra phone cord is usually included.
After all that then you can move to meet an Internet service provider to have their modem or dial up. and their setup for the dial up giving to you. From there have a wonderful browsing and meting people

I have constant trouble with my toshiba laptop using windows vista constantly losing the dial up internet connection.


If your telephone line may have disturbances from any electronic devices at any point then this could happen. Try moving other devices especially speakers, mobile phones and TV near the modem. Does your laptop wifi enabled one? Do you use telephone in that line? If so use a line filter with two out. could you give your laptop model no.? There is not enough details to pinpoint the problem

Can not phone out or receive phone calls bt say my line is ok, my broad band works ok but not my phone


When did it start?
You haven't mentioned what you hear when you lift the receiver and try to dial out.
Please try this: (A process of elimination.)
- Unplug your modem from the telephone line.
- Plug your telephone directly to the telephone line without going through the line filter.
- It should work OK. If the phone is not defective, you should hear a clear dial tone.
- Now connect your phone through the line filter and try to use it again.
- If it does not work then you need a new line filter for your telephone.
- If it works, then re-connect your modem back to the telephone line like it was before.

If the modem knocks out your phone again, please contact the modem supplier.

Bell dial up is at 17kbps uploading at 2 kb/s. is there anyway to speed this up?


A dial-up modem should download up to 50 Kbits/second, on a "clean" telephone-line, and should upload (send from your computer to some site) up to 28.8 Kbits/second.

So, if you're only getting 17 Kbits/second, you have a "noisy" telephone-line -- contact Bell, and get them to measure the line-quality.

When placing a "voice" call over that telephone-line, does it sound scratchy, or otherwise "bad" ? If so, then tell Bell that your voice-quality is "bad". A friend recently got the local telephone-company to replace the wires all the way from the telephone-pole on the street to the junction-box on the side of their house, at *NO* cost to the friend.
The wires were between 30 and 90 years old.

Lost dial tone and phone service


Your phone line might be connected to Telephone 1 not 2. That could be the reason why you are not getting a dial tone.

Dialing through the modem


Ok sometimes PABX systems just don't seem to play well with modems... as a thought put a couple of Commas, a "Pause" B4, AND AFTER ya try to dial the 9, IE: ,,9, As sometime it takes a while for the PABX to "Latch on" to the DTMF tones. Thats all I can think of really.
