sureRe: Speedstream 6520 Wireless

turn protocol to open and take all the security off
also make sure the receiving modem is set to the same channel as the router under advanced area.
from there the ssid will show up. Then the security will need to be set up first on the dsl and then on the computer
good luck it worked for me.

You're talking about using the 6520 as the modem/router at the same time though right?
So maybe it shouldn't be on channel 11? I have the encruption disabled for now. And I have enabled SSID broadcast...I'll have to fiddle around with the channels maybe.

You can also try using NetStumbler to see if it picks up the 6520's SSID. Sometimes the Windows Zero Config utility (if you're using Windows) might be acting up. I'm assuming you've tried connecting to other AP's using the same laptop?

if you cant see the ssid in most cases its not the modem it s usually a button/switch or a combo/function key that you have to turn on for the laptop to start looking for a wireless signal. if you want to test this take the laptop into pretty much any area downtown in any city and look for the available wireless networks ....if it still doesn t find any....you need to turn on the wireless in our laptop.

by default in many laptops its turned off in an effort to extend the battery life of the laptop.

kind of different but same at origin problem here. wireless is being activated, SSID broadcast disabled and MAC filter is on. ok for now, but then after 5-7 mins passes, the wireless goes off (the led goes off). but when i check the wireless setup through gateway, it says its on and working as intended. but it is not!

aany particular way to solve this out? maybe a firmware upgrade or so?
