Speedstream 5200 modem

I have a new computer with Vista as the operating system. It does not accept or recognize the USB drivers software that I have for the modem. It is dated July 2004 and works on Windows XP. Is there new software that I need to downlaod or what? I would have to downlaod it on another computer and save onto a disk, I guess. Please let me know what I need to do.

Open the following link --

speedstream 5200

Download the manual from the link and review page 7 for ethernet connection.

Notice particularly the back of the device. There are four connection points to plug things in the one on the left with DSL is where cable with the phone connectors connects the phone jack to the speedstream 5200. On the right the round connector with the pin is where the power goes. Next to the power connector to the left is a USB connector. In between usb connector and the DSL port is an ethernet connector. One way to avoid the need for the USB software os to use the ethernet connector bu connecting an ethenet cable (wider connector that fits snugly in both ports one on the Speadstream 5200 and the other probably present on your computer.

USB driver including VISTA (if you prefer)

    Try this -- the links only seem to work for the browser I am using -- maybe a cookie issue.


    http://kb.efficient.com

    Click on 5100/5200/5400/5500 Router in the left column
    click on this in the center for the manual
    5xxx Router User
    Guide


    then try this for the usb driver

    I hope this is better -- sorry for the problems --I have not encountered a website that caused these issues providing links

    alternate means to vista driver

    http://kb.efficient.com

    Click Vista Drivers in left column
    click USB Driver in center
    click drv_4.9.0.135.exe on resulting page

    Yes you should download the sofftware to another machine and transfer it on an appropriate device such as a USB memory stick. A second alternative would be to use the ethernet connection to download the USB file directly to the machine in question, if it works in your configuration.

I have a Speedstreams 5200 E242 modem. Installation stuck after modem connection. Is the 4.2.2.122 driver Windows 7 compatible? Where can I download the good driver for Win 7?

Hello,
If your router is connected via the Ethernet port no drivers are necessary.

If you don't have a good reason to use the USB port, please use the Ethernet since it's much faster.

Please let me know.

regards

Speedstream 6520 driver

Windows doesn't detect Ethernet connected devices. You could hook up a dozen Ethernet Modems and Windows would not see any of them, but they all would work fine using TCP/IP. It is not like you installed the DSL Modem/Router inside the case of the PC. You do know how Ethernet works, right? The only driver needed is the correct one for your Ethernet card, but that comes the Ethernet Card or the Motherboard Drivers CD for onboard Ethernet.

Found a few things, here are some websites to try:

I have a new operating system Windows Vista Home.

In most cases Vista will "discover" your hardware and apply the correct drivers. It is never a bad idea to visit the manufacturer's site to see if they have a more current driver than was selected by the Vista install.

This is not a direct link but should get you the latest driver.

Driver Issues on Windows Vista Basic

As an adhoc solution you may try to download drivers for XP SP2, tell the driver installation applet to search for drivers from the folder you downloaded them to when it tells you this driver was not made for Vista tell it to install them anyway. It may not work but as this manufacturer is no longer in the modem biz vista is not supported by them at this time.
