Question about Siemens SpeedStream 4200 (13A4200001) Bridge
I am a new windstream customer and I want to connect my Speedstream 4200 modem to my D-Link router. I have spent over 9 hours on the phone with Windstream "tech" support (over fifteen calls) asking them to put my modem in bridge mode so I can connect my router. I also spoke to D-Link tech$ support who advised me that my modem is yet to be bridged and requested I contact windstream. I would love to know if I can bridge the modem from my location. Thanks for your help.

Http://192.168.254.254/brgmode.html ...or if they have the gay firmware >.> go to http://speedstream/brgmode.html then click apply....now set your router to log in with your user information with a PPOE login...if your like me and using the dlg-4500 just go to setup and do internet wizard to set up easily...then your ready to go... it can take up to 10 minutes for your router to configure so give it time..and if it doesn't seem like it's working in that time...try cycling your power then check again...and if still not working, do a hard reset (hold reset till lights alternat from green to red) to reset to factor default (do it for your router too becfause it will still be set to sign into your isp for you)

Do an ipconfig to determine your IP address, 192.168.2.10, look at the gateway & that is the IP address of the modem so - browse to 192.168.2.1/brgmode.htm - apply & reboot the modem. now you can enter the connection credentials into your router or network connection - PS the Pwr LED does not alternate between red & green when the reset button is pressed - depends on firmware revision perhaps? just remember to hold the reset button for 4s, holding it for too long (as someone mentioned) will bypass the reset.

Try THIS document. particularly page 35
Important! If you switch to Bridge mode, you will lose access to the Web management interface and can only return to Router mode by resetting the Router to factory defaults.
Make sure that you have configured all other parameters as required first
To reset the Router:
1. Using the tip of a ballpoint pen or unfolded paperclip, press and hold the Reset button located on the bottom of the router. The pwr LED will blink red once, indicating that the reset has begun.
2. Continue depressing the Reset button for four seconds or until the pwr LED begins to blink alternating red-to-green.
3. Release the Reset button.
To cancel the reset:
Continue depressing the Reset button for longer than 10 econds. The pwr LED will return to green, and the action will be cancelled.

Plug your speadstream modem into your router via ethernet cable. Make sure router and modem are powered on. Once you have conected the two and the power is on just push and hold the reset button on the modem for the count of five. Your modem has now been bridged with your router....It worked for me and I have the same modem just different router. I hop this helps you good luck :)

Step 2: Please assign your manual to a product:
Windstream uses dynamic router configuration scripts to remove that option from the menu, so we need another solution.
