It's just a regular modem, LiteOn is name brand, just like Conexant. Also, modems are used for dialing on a land line, and must be connected or hardwired to a land line, there is no such thing as a wireless modem, however there are modems that can communicate with computers through wireless receivers, but they are not considered wireless modems, they're considered and called wireless capable modems. These are generally found in high end office fax machines.

I had unplugged my wireless modem and now I cannot get it to connect to the internet. I tried to reboot and nothing worked. It is recognized in my computer.


Try unplugging and reconnecting Ethernet cable to modem. Reset the modem if there is a separate modem than the wireless modem (i.e. Cable modem). Your pc acknowledging the wireless modem does not mean your Internet should work, although a prerequisite... If this is no help, may need to connect to wireless modem (via http://ip address) and configure settings. It's likely though the issue is wireless modem not communicating with cable modem correctly if you have a set up like that.

I have a 4100. Can it be used wireless?


This modem that you have don;t have a wireless capability, but if you like to have a wireless network using this modem you need to get a wireless router that will be connected to the modem and the wireless router will be the one that is going to be transmitting the wireless signal for your wireless computers.

You can go and get a wireless broadband router from this manufacturer Linksys, Netgear , Belkin and Dlink , they make a good wireless router that can be use with your modem.

Connecting internet


The Wii has built in WiFi so if you have a wireless modem all you will need to do is go to the Wii settings menu and select Internet, Next choose Connection Settings then select Connection 1. Here you will have the option to choose a Wireless conection -OR- Wired connection. If you have a wireless modem or Router click Wireless connection and choose Search for an access point then
select your access point from the list. Save then start a connection test.

If you do not have a wireless modem or router you must buy the LAN Adapter which you will find here http://www.amazon.com/Wii-LAN-Adapter-Nintendo/dp/B0014KM2KG. You will need that to connect a ethernet cord from your modem to the Wii. You would choose Wired connection and click ok to start the test. Good luck and have fun (",)

How do i activate and find out what kinda modem is in my x1700 i cant get on internet


your best bet is to open the unit up and read the information on it.
by modem, if you mean dialup the drivers should already be in the unit both in windows and from the manufacture. You can go to acer.com on another PC to check the drivers. Most acers run standard Conexant chipset modems but the brands coudl be different.

According to Acer they are using LiteOn or Pro-Nets modems.

We are unable to have highspeed internet and have to have dial up but there is no modem on the laptop I have. How do I get a modem downloaded into my laptop to use the dial up at my home?


Hi Guest,
You cannot download a modem for dial-up internet as you do not have an rj11 phone jack on your laptop so you need something like this that is a dial up modem that plugs into your usb socket.

I want to connect my telstra wireless modem to my PS3


I assume the Telstra wireless modem is configured correctly and the computer/laptop can access the Internet wirelessly.
The PS3 needs to be configured with the Telstra modem's wireless settings so it can communicate with the wireless modem.
To configure the PS3 please follow these steps :-
1. Power up the PS3 and login then Select Network Settings and
press X
2. Select Easy then press > button
3. Select Wireless then press > button
4. Select Scan then press > button
5. Select the wireless modem you want to use, then press X button
6. Confirm the SSID for the wireless modem then press > button
7. Select the security settings (ie WAP, WPA - this is the in the wireless modem settings) then press > button
If there is no encryption I suggest you enable the encryption on the wireless modem, use passphrase to generate the encryption key.
Write down this encryption key, you will need this key for your computers and PS3.
8. Enter the WEP or WPA encryption key (from the wireless modem) then press > button
9. Check the settings then press X button

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: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/MEA/en/products/WAG120N
2. Linksys DSL modem/Router with Wireless G: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/ANZ/en/products/WAG54G
You can find other brands as Dlink, Netgear ...
Best Regards,

Does a router or combo need to be connected to computer?


As you already have the modem you only need a router. In all cases the modem connects to the WAN port on the router.

I think your best bet surely would be to go for a wireless router though? Then you wouldnt have to trail ethernet cables all round the house. I'm sure your laptop has a wireless adaptor built in unless it;s very old.

I always use Netgear networking stuff so forgive me posting a link to a nice 54G wireless router :-) :

Modem replacement inspiron 2200


Do you have access to another laptop that you could test the new modem in? Sounds to me like the new one maybe faulty :(

Try uninstalling the old one whilst its in via device manager then shut down and put new one in. If it doesnt detect it then its faulty.
