Last night I helped a friend who had two modems supplied by Telstra, one of them was a Thomson modem, I don't remember the brand of the other. Both had the same IP address of (it is probably a standard address set by Telstra.
Try it, it worked for me.

Lolz, who ever dosen't know how to do this on his/her own is 1337 noob, o well i've got free time right now cuz i'm watching some video on core animation.

firstly on the far left side click home network > interface > you will now see in the middle of the page LocalNetwork, under that click WLAN:[Name Of PC] (56Mbps) > on the top far right of the tool bar click Details now at the bottom of the page you'll see the WEP key.

Anonymous is a common/default network router connection. Thompson use a different connection of

Don't forget to configure XBOX360 and PS3 through there too. You can even find your WEP key just incase you've forgotten it.

If you use in Internet Explorer you may be greeted with a box asking for username and password. Both username and password are " admin " in lower-case. Then to retrieve the WEP key click on HOME NETWORK. You'll see your Wireless network and Ethernet network. Beside the WIRELESS you should see WLAN: XXXXXXX (54Mbps) click on that. In the top right just under SPEEDTOUCH you will see OVERVIEW | DETAILS | CONFIGURE | HELP If you click on DETAILS down near the bottom is your WEP key. Hope this helps anyone out there.

How to connect two speedtouch modems wirelessly ?

  • Hi you need a wireless router to do this,
    PICK A ROUTER - There are tons of wireless routers to choose from. Depending on how big your house or office you might have to purchase multiple routers. The current standard in wireless technology is known as Wireless G. It is rated at a maximum speed of 54Mbps with a radius range of approximately 75'. This is most suitable for small homes or offices. Other types include Wireless A, B, and N and all vary in bandwidth and range. Do some more research and find out what might be suitable for your needs.
  • Step 2PICK A WIRELESS NETWORK CARD - If you set up a wireless network make sure to get wireless networking cards for each desktop, otherwise there'll be no way for you to connect to the internet. Most laptops have wireless networking cards built in, check your laptops manual to make sure.

    I have two routers Netgear DG834Gv3 and Thomson SpeedTouch TG585v7. I want to create a wireless bridge between these two routers, so that I can have internet on the Netgear router. The main router/Access...

    I am sorry but I am not so familiar with the Thomson Device but I can give you a clue on how to set it up....you can skip the security settings first just make sure they work then you can set it later...Check it out!

    - Thomson as "Master Router" connected to modem set up as follows
    -- Set up wireless access point as you normally would in Wireless Settings, muine are "MY_SSID",Channel 2,b+g mode,
    64-bit WEP with hex key (rather than pass phrase)
    --- Enter any laptop wifi MAC addresses in the "Client Access List" here to allow them and make sure it's set to restrict
    -- Set DHCP range to to (my preference) in "Lan Settings"
    -- go to Wireless Bridging and Repeating menu option
    --- Set "Enable Wireless Repeating Function"
    --- Set as "Wireless Base Station"
    --- DO NOT check the "Disable Wireless Client Association" if you want to be able to use laptop wifi
    --- Enter the mac address of your "Slave Router" here
    Make sure all of the above is applied and has stuck, i had a habit of setting some things then clicking to a sub-menu
    before clicking apply, always scroll down and click apply before drilling into sub options!

    DG834G V3 : "Slave Router"
    -- Get latest firmware as earlier v3 firmware doesnt support WDS
    -- Enable Wireless Settings and set to exact same as "Master Router" including 64 bit WEP key and MAC access list for
    laptops etc
    -- Disable DHCP in Basic Setup (I think)
    -- "Advanced Wireless Settings" menu option
    --- "Enable Bridging and Repeating"
    --- Select the "Wireless Bridge With Client Association" (or similar) option
    --- Enter the "Master Router" MAC address here
    Again, double check everything has stuck, that the "normal" wireless settings for both routers are identical and reboot
    both (in either order worked for me but booting the Master first is probably best practise)
    GOOD LUCK!!!
