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.

Connect to router


There are plenty of good routers to pick from, but the choice you make depends on more than your DSL modem and computer. It depends on your wireless network needs.
What kind of structure are you working in?
How many floors do you need coverage on?
Do you plan to play any multiplayer online games?
Do you plan to stream video or audio media on your network?
Do you need to setup access to your network from the internet?
How important is your network's security?

All of these factors are key in deciding the best solution.

Cheap is never the best deciding factor. The average cost for a decent reliable router will range in price from $50 to $150 depending on features.

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,

Can siemens speedstream 4200 be used with wifi antenna. do not want dsl.


The Siemens is a DSL modem and doesn't meet with your requirements.
Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.

Speedstream modem 4200


put the modem in bridge mode and then connect a DSL/cable router to it...you'll have to configure the PPOE if its DSL... Cable is a little easier because there usually is a MAC authientication not username and password...plug dsl/cable router into cable modem...turn both off for about aminute then turn modem on first then router... Be careful most routers with wireless have it enable with no security by default...turn it off or set securty (wirelss that is)
