If you have DSL service, Actiontec makes a wireless DSL modem thats easy to setup. It had a built in router in it.

You should setup wireless security for your network so that you won't have any unauthorized inturders entering your network.

How to conect to wifi

You need to obtain and connect a wireless router to the modem to add a wireless network. Use an RJ-45 between the WAN port on the router and to the yellow port on the TM822G (or similar Arris telephony modem). Check with your ISP. If you have set your computer to obtain an IP address and DNS server automatically, you will have the router's wired connection set up immediately.

You will need to check the router's manual to find its IP address and administrative user name and password. Using a computer with a wired ethernet connection to the router, log in and set up the wireless network; you probably will want to change the network's default name to one that is easier to remember. Enable the encryption and use a password on your wireless network. (I recommend disabling the guest account option.)

Then go to your devices that can connect to the wireless network and set them up to find that network. (For some tablets, see the Settings > Network > Wireless menus. On Windows 7 and 8 computers, enable the wireless adapter if needed. Then go to the Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center. Then set up a new connection.) Some routers have a WPS button on the back or front. If you press this button when prompted by the device, the router will send out a signal that will pair the device and the router without much effort. For other devices, you will need set the device to search for available networks and then type in the password.

I hope this helps.

How do I configure for wireless?

Siemens Speedstream 4100 is just a modem, if you want to connect to the internet wireless you will need to set up your speedstream modem with a wireless router.
It can work with almost all the wireless routers available in the market, but I would recommend a Linksys wireless router.

2wire modem is not brodcasting wireless

Usually 2WIRE modems are automatically configured to broadcast wireless. If your modem is not broadcasting it can be due to a few minor D.I.Y issue.

1. Access your gateway address E.g in most cases
, access wireless settings, scroll down to see if the ENABLE SSID is checked. If it is not checked, check it and submit settings. Try searching for wireless again and it should appear in your wireless networks

2. Check your wireless channel if its in the default channel. By default it should be in channel 6. Too high channel will not broadbast wireless networks. E.G Channel 13 will not broadcast wireless. Even it does the wireless will not be strong enough.

Hope this may help and solve your problem
