Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)
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 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]
