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.

Made unsuccessful attempts to connect to the Internet using the dial-up modem. The internal modem came installed on my original PC and is a Smart Link 56k Modem. What do I do?


Can we have more information about the problem you have when attempting to connect ? The error code and message would me very useful in your case.

For example :
1. If it says the modem is already in use, go to "Network connections" or "Network and sharing center" and delete all existing dial-up connections, then create a new one based on the settings your internet provider gave you.

2. It might be a problem with the login and password. Write both in Notepad on the computer, then copy and paste the information in the required fields in the connection window.

3. It might also be a problem on the telephone line. Try another computer with dial-up modem known to work properly. If the problem repeats on that computer, the problem is on the telephone line. You will need to contact your provider to fix the problem.

ATD 66419700 NO DIAL TONE.


That means that the modem cannot detect the correct (or any) dial tone when it picks up the line. Connect a normal; telephone to the line and lift the receiver. If you hear a normal dial tone, then the line is ok. Ithat is the case, then the modem may be faulty. You could try atz command and see what happens. If it is on a pabx or fax machine or something, the dial tone may be non-standard and teh modem won't recognise it. In that case, consult the modem manual for the AT command that tells it to ignore dial tone and dial anyway. You may have to enter that command as well as teh correct command to store that setting, alternatively you can enter the commands as an initialisation string in whatever software you are using to dial.
Hope that helps.

Hi,

It can be an issue with the modem or with the line. When the line drops the link then the modem shows only two lights. And, when you power cycle the modem (unplug and replug it) it establish the session again with the comcast.

So, i'll suggest you to get the line checked first and if comcast finds that line is working fine then get the modem replaced.

No dsl or internet activity on 2wire wireless modem


Please make sure that your telephone connection is working fine. In case it is working fine, remove any external devices like fax, multi function printers etc from the same line. In case the telephone is also not working, please contact your telephone company to check the line.

Cannot receive phone calls on a dsl setup


There must be DSL Spliter inbetween telephone line & Wi-fi modem. Please check whether you have connected telephone instrument line with that Spliter or not. According to me, Telephone instrument should connect to telephone line option on DSL Splitter to use same telephone line as internet as well Telephone.

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.

on an arris modem, if the telephone light is solid, then there is dial tone coming into the modem. that means the problem is somewhere in the house wiring. check to make sure the phone line is plugged into line 1 on the back of the modem. next make sure it is plugged into the wall jack. if this is correct then you need the cable co to come out and troubleshoot your inside wiring. as a quick fix, you can plug your phone into the jack on the back of the modem labled line 1/2

Dialup link problem


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
