I have a siemens speedstream 6520 modem and a new isp. I managed to find out how to logg into the modem via firefox the browser using 10.0.0.138 and then I rebooted the modem resetting to default but I don't know where to go after logging in using my isp userbame/password. I tried several possibles as I amnot 100% sure of that info. the reason I am asking here and not the isp is I rememeber I had to get extra help. The isps don't like linux users. I am also doing it this way as I paid for naked dsl and I only have a mobile phone now. Way too expensive to ring an isp and be on the line for a long time. I can't get to a public phone and no one around me hasa landline phone. I am using my blackberry internet connect to do this and the typos would be numerous. Would appreciate the help as I am on disability and the mobile phone cost to ring iprimus would be huge

Your best place is to look at the web pages of the ISP.

Do you have the dns ip's addresses?

Hi i finally found out what was the trouble. I had the wrong username/password plus it wasn't even connected yet. I had to get to a public phone box. It is just too hard to get on the net on a blackberry. Mine is pretty good when it comes to zooming in on pages but it is tiring waiting for the navigation loading of pages. Plus googling just takes way too long. The isp pages don't show info of modems they dont support so i didn't bother. Anyway i am on now as of half an hour ago....thanks :0)
