Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge
I have an old SpeedStream 4200. It has worked perfectly up until now. Internet connection will be fine for a while and then just drop out for no reason. I notice that the DSL light flashes occasionally or goes off altogether. Can I assume than my router has just reached the end of its lifespan? I have recently reduced my home phone line rental plan....that wouldn't have anything to do with it...would it? Probably a stupid Q...I'm not tech savvy at all.
The DSL light blinking or going out indicates that the DSL modem is loosing sync. This is usually caused by noise on the line. When you get the DSL service you should be given filters to put on all of your phones so that the phones will not interfere with the DSL signal. Those filters need to be attached to anything connected to the phone line that has the DSL on it except for the DSL modem. Other than that the problem could be on the service providers end, something outside your home, or the DSL modem going out. I would suggest that you verify everything is filtered, then contact your service provider so they can run test on your DSL line.

This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE, but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.
plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )
The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:
Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:
SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)
If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.
For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.
UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.
PLZ REPLY IF THIS HELPS, I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE RESOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE
