If it is wireless, it would double as a router. All you would need to do is either get a wireless adapter or use the internal one. All you need to do is set up your router. Most likely, when you set it up for the first time, it will say the company name.

It has a slot for a wireless card, but there's no way to tell whether your provider supplies it with the card. Call tech support and ask them. If it's not wireless, either connect your laptop with CAT5 cable, or get a wireless access point (or a wireless router and emasculate it - instructions at http://webdingers.com/router.html). The router will probably be cheaper and easier to find (Linksys WRT54-type routers are good and they're cheap), and emasculation doesn't require any modification of the router, just a modification in how you use it.

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,

Router to connect or sub the speedstream 5100


Option 1 (easy)
you could buy a switch or router and put in line with your modem.
you will have to set up appropriate networking on the xbox
DSL --> MODEM --> SWITCH <-- PC
^---- XBOX

Option 2 (harder)
you could get a wired/wireless AP (Access Point) for your PC and run ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) through Windows. connect the XBOX through your PC

Speedstream 4200 setup


I have just set up 4200 with dsl - you may find that you need to reset modem before you can configure. I was told that you need either a grey or yellow cable from your laptop to the modem. I use 10.0.0.138 to access modem. The 4200 I have was from a bigpond a/c - originally configured accordingly.
