Question about Efficient Networks SpeedStream 5200 Modem

1 Answer

Speadsream 5200 E240

While I was away on vacation, someone from Bell Canada phoned my home and talked my 15-year old son into doing some "tests" on our ADSL connection, tests which "determined" that our current modem was way too slow and that we should "upgrade" to a new free replacement modem he would send us.
When I got home, I confirmed with Bell that it was indeed a free "upgrade" and could return the old one to them by prepaid post. The new modem, a Speedstream 5200 E240, is actually slower than the previous one; when viewing a video, we can only see 4 or 5 seconds at a time until it "reloads", something the old modem never did. I have 3 questions:
1- have we been duped by Bell Canada?
2- is there any way I can hack this modem to make it faster?
3- if not, can you recommend a faster modem?
Thanks for any help you can provide
Jacques

Modems are now shipped with the Hardware firewall turned on low to block things,and also Telnet..

Turned it off and then it should also all fixed.

there is methods of hacking this unit as well

------------------
Step 1: you have to make sure your IP is set to 192.168.2.2


Step 2: Go to »192.168.2.1/pfwizardj.cgi?code=E···retain=f and set "All Items" under "Profile Configuration Access" click next and choose "Do not require admin login"


Step2: Go to »192.168.2.1/pfwizardj.cgi?code=E···retain=f and do the same thing, except type 192.168.2.2 as your "Constant Profile IP Address".

(if everything went ok, you should now see the new configuration page)

From here, you have to access every configuration page manually.

Here they are:

»192.168.2.1/dhcpcfg.htm - DHCP
»192.168.2.1/ddnscfg.htm - Dynamic DNS (what francoisr wanted)

Erasing a 3-4 year old VX5200

  1. Click OK/Menu
  2. Click right twice to get to the Settings and Tools Menu
  3. Click down until you get to the System (this is 5 on a 5200)
  4. Click down until you get to the Security (this is also 5 on a 5200)
  5. Enter your lock code. If you have not customized it, this is the last for digits of your phone number.
  6. Click Reset Default
  7. You’ll see a message that says “Reset Default: Preference settings will be set to factory defaults. Press OK to continue.” You know what to do here…
I’ve not done this on my phone. I like my settings. But I’m told that this will NOT remove the custom rings you have uploaded on your phone AND there is a seperate menu item for deleting contacts. So, I don’t think it will remove your contact information either BUT I cannot guarantee this. Choosing this option MIGHT remove all of those settings.
If someone reading this follows these instructions, please let me know, in a comment, what is cleared and what is not.

My northwestern bell phone has a problem, I can hear the caller b

How old is this phone? It might need new batteries, either that or you might be moving too far away from the base. Another option is that someone in your immediate area has a similar phone on the same frequency which could be causing interference. Hope this helps.

Checking voice mail remotely

for this model of phone, you perform the following:
1- Call the phone, wait for the machine to answer
----if the machine is on, it should answer within about 4 rings and begin playing your answering machine message
----if the machine is off, it will still answer after about 10 rings with a series of beeps
2- During the message (or beeps if it is off) press 0 and then enter your 2 digit PIN code. This should get you remote access to the phone. from there you can follow the menu structure that the phone tells you. If you never entered a PIN code, that's not a problem. the default code for this model of phone is 80.

you have about 15 seconds to enter a command, all commnds are two digit (01 through 10) and the digits must be entered within 2 seconds of eachother for the command to hold.

follow those directions and you'll be checking your messages in no time flat.
