Reset the DSL Modem and make sure the modem is setup for your DSL account information. You might have to call up your ISP for that information to be added. If that was done prior then the Router has to have the same information user name @ your or .com and password. for PPOE. Make sure the router has it MTU set to 1492 for DSL.

1. unplug the modem
2. unplug the router
3. between both of them wait 30 seconds
4. all PCs should not be on
5. plug in back the modem
6. plug in back the router
7. Turn one one PC
8. login to the router and make sure it connects to the internet

Since your using Gig Router make sure that the WAN is to 10 if you have 6Mbps plan 15 to 30mbp plan go to 100 for WAN.

If you're still having issues, then you need 3rd level service tech from your ISP to check the DSL back at the office side to see how that's connecting to your modem. If that checks out okay, then have line tech come out and check the DSL going into the house. If that checks out good then it could be the a problem with the new router you have there you have updated the firmware for it yet?

If you have then the modem could be the problem. These are the steps you need to take to trouble shoot the problem. Check all connections make sure they're plugged in correctly. Make sure all DSL filters are working correctly one bad filter can throw the DSL off. Check each phone connected to a filter to see if its clear.

First set up WAN side access to the internet. For this you need information about your internet service provider. Please respond with your internet service provider's name or better yet a link to their help/support website.

I assume you already have access to configure the router at if not please do the following. Open Internet explorer and enter where you would enter and press enter -- do web pages appear in your screen from the wired computer. If so we have manual access to configure the router...

hope this helps you..

Thank you!!...

Westell 7500 set up guide

modems are not routers. Routers can port forward. You need your WAN to face your ISP, and your LAN will need to face your router. Once you have your router talking to your ISP you can set it up to hand out interal network services, but I doubt SOHO routers will do port forwarding. Routers, however, can do port translation like passing gaming traffic over port 80 (web). You can do that in the security tab on your linksys.

I have a siemens 4200 adsl modem i had a net gear modem before and that was not working with wireless internet and now this modem wont let me connect wireless either only with the ethernet cabel. help!

Hello Mate,
the siemens speedstream 4200 is a DSL modem/Router which doesn't have wireless connection. So even tough if you have a computer equiped with a wireless adapter, you will not be able to connect wirelessly because the siemens 4200 doesn't act as wireless access point.
You may need next time to check first if the modem/router to buy support wireless (wifi g or n) and make sure that it's not only a modem, it should be also a router.
i attached here some references for you from the top brands:
1. Linksys DSL modem/Router with wireless N:
2. Linksys DSL modem/Router with Wireless G:
You can find other brands as Dlink, Netgear ...
Best Regards,

hi, what you have to do is open the router page by typing in the address bar of internet explorer and press enter..
it will ask you for username and password i.e. admin and password....after that you'll be on netgear page there click the one on the left BACKUPSETTINGS below maintenance and after that on the new page click erase tab on the main page..then click yes router will reboot after that click ok and again type in password and press ok....After that you'll be back on netgear page and this time click on first option on the left BASIC SETTINGS and on left change encapsulation to pppoe and under that login will be your username provided to you by your isp and the password as that scroll

And then click adsl settings on the left and change multiplexing to llc based and vpi and vci you have to confirm that from your isp and then apply router will go online....
