Speed Stream 5100 Modem -

I've connected a Speed Stream 5100 modem to a split phone line and it cannot get connection to the internet. Why?

    Where do I get an AT&T approved phone line splitter if those you mentioned are no good? And, why is it if I run a 25 foot line to a regular phone outlet that is wired differently with a splitter on it, it works? I put that splitter into the problem phone jack and I still can't get a good connection. I'm tusing a Linksys SRX wireless broadband Router (Model WRT54GX) and a Speed Stream 5100 Ethernet ADSL Modem. Does how the jack boxes mater how they are wired?

You must use a phone company phone line splitter that is approved for DSL usage. If you use a radio shack or walmart phone splitter it will not work.

    Call your isp and they can provide you with one. DSL is real funny on what will work and not, but the easiest and for sure thing is to get one from your isp. Make sure the line you put the isp splitter on is not a split line itself.

If you are using DSL, you most likely do not have your line split between the internet and phone. At that point, you need to find the filtering devices provided with your DSL modem and connect one phone line from the phone slot to the cordless phone jack, then connect another phone line from the internet slot to your DSL modem.

My speedstream modem wont let me connect with wireless router

high this is a crazey fix but it might work it has done on two of my modems speedstream and speed touch and i track this problem down just so i could post this fix because i know what its like to pull your hair out over thease things its pretty simple and i know idear why it works but it has done for me
firstly if your with a internet provider and they have supplied you with a disk if your lucky it will have modem problem fixing file such as with tiscali
if like me you only get some way through it as it configures your modem hear it is take the phone of the receiver ie hook then it will configure your modem for you
if not lucky enough to have this on your set up internet cd you can still try it
by taking the phone of the hook and then rebooting your modem ie switching it of and on becarfel though it might be best if you closed your computer down first
1) take phone of hook
2)re boot modem
3)tern on computer /laptop
good luck
