I have a SpeedStream 4100 (a) that I bought off eBay. The seller said it was new, and I think it is. I was able to access the Siemens configuration page (»192.168.0.1
) after using the supplied AT&T/Yahoo Setup CD where I entered my User Name and Password. I've had SpeedStream 4100s before; it's the only DSL modem I've used. I wanted one for backup, because earlier 4100s died on me. I was playing with the new one to see if it worked.
After directly connecting the modem to my Mac I started the modem back up and it seemed fine. My User Name and Password were sent to the modem, as expected. When I tried to access the Advanced features of the Configuration Page I was prompted for the Modem Access Code.
I input the Modem Access Code that was on the yellow sticker on the bottom of the modem, but it wasn't accepted. I've tried several times to get the modem to accept its own code, but it won't. I don't think the previous owner changed it, because I was able to view some stats without the code, and the first use of the modem is today.
I reset the modem and reinstalled the AT&T/Yahoo software to see if it was a temporary glitch. It wasn't.
Any ideas on what's wrong?
