4200 speedstream modem problem

I just bought a new 4200 modem to replace one that died. I need to use it as a modem (have separate wireless router). I've installed throught ethernet and I get message saying Local Area is connected but I can't get on the internet or access email. Tried hooking up directly (by-passing router)changing cables, even tried old computer but I still can't get connected. Do I have to go into the modem's setup to change some settings? The fact that both old and new computer wouldn't connect tells me it must be the modem. (note: Problem initially started with just email on old modem, but when I changed virus programs, it went away. Then old modem died completely,5 years old, no lights at all. Problems might be un-related just co-incidence? All this within 2 days of initial problem) Running Windows XP, Internet Explorer 6 and Microsoft Outlook for Mail.

    I have set up one before. It didn't work. I ended up going back to the supplier and they had to re configue the modem as it was configured as a router not a modem.

I guess you probably aint set-up a wireless router before, what you need to do is get it connected up so you revieve local area is connected then, load internet explorer you will recieve a message like page not displayed. where you usually type in www.ebay.com for example type in the number thats on the bottom of the router ie it looks somthing like this 192.168.1.1 for example. a menu will then appear, fill in your broadband username details etc and you should be up and going, if you have problems feel free to email me,, All the best John [email protected]

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'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.

Wireless networking

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.

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)
