Applications
The SpeedStream 2614 by Siemens provides many advanced features and functionality:
•
LAN Access – The SpeedStream 2614 provides connectivity to 10/100 Mbps devices, making it easy to
create a network in small offices or homes.
•
Internet Access – This device supports Internet access through an xDSL, cable, ISDN or PSTN
connection. Since many DSL providers use PPPoE to establish communications with end users, the
SpeedStream 2614 includes a built-in PPPoE client, eliminating the need to install this service on your
computer.
•
Shared IP Address – The SpeedStream 2614 provides Internet access for up to 253 users with a single
shared IP address. Using only one ISP account, multiple users on your network can browse the Web at
the same time.
•
Virtual Server – If you have a fixed IP address, you can set up the SpeedStream 2614 to act as a virtual
host for network address translation. Remote users access various services at your site via a constant IP
address. Then, depending on the requested service (or port number), the SpeedStream 2614 can route the
request to the appropriate server at another internal IP address. This secures your network from direct
attack by hackers, and provides more flexible management by allowing you to change internal IP
addresses without affecting outside access to your network.
•
User-Definable Application-Sensing Tunnel – You can define special applications that require
multiple connections such as Internet gaming, video conferencing, and Internet telephony. The
SpeedStream 2614 will then sense the application type and open a multi-port tunnel for it.
•
DMZ Host Support – The SpeedStream 2614 allows a networked computer to be fully exposed to the
Internet. This function is used when the special application-sensing tunnel feature is insufficient to allow
an application to function correctly.
•
Security – The SpeedStream 2614 supports security features that can deny Internet access to specified
users, or filter all requests for specific services the administrator does not want to serve. The
SpeedStream 2614’s firewall can also block common hacker attacks, including IP Spoofing, Land
Attack, Ping of Death, IP with zero length, Smurf Attack, UDP port loopback, Snork Attack, TCP null
scan, and TCP SYN flooding.
•
Virtual Private Network – The SpeedStream 2614 supports three of the most commonly used VPN
protocols: PPTP, L2TP and IPSec. These protocols allow remote users to establish a secure connection
to their corporate network. If your service provider supports VPNs, any of these protocols can be used to
create an authenticated and encrypted tunnel for passing secure data over the Internet. The VPN protocols
supported by the SpeedStream 2614 are briefly described below:
-
Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol provides a secure tunnel for remote client access to a PPTP
security gateway. PPTP includes provisions for call origination and flow control required by ISPs.
Layer Two Tunneling Protocol includes most of the features provided by PPTP, but has less
overhead and is more suited for managed networks.
IP Security provides IP network-layer encryption and can support large encryption networks, such
as the Internet, by using digital certificates for device authentication.

Description of Hardware
You can connect the SpeedStream 2614 DSL/Cable Router to the Internet or to a remote site using its RJ45 WAN port or RS232 serial port. You can connect it directly to your computer or to a local area network
using any of the four Fast Ethernet LAN ports. The SpeedStream 2614 can even function as a print server.
Access speed to the Internet depends on your service type. Full-rate ADSL provides up to 8 Mbps
downstream and 640 Mbps upstream. G.lite (or splitterless) ADSL provides up to 1.5 Mbps downstream
and 512 Kbps upstream. Cable modems can provide up to 36 Mbps downstream and 2 Mbps upstream.
ISDN can provide up to 128 Kbps when using two bearer channels. And PSTN analog connections can
now run up to 56 Kbps. However, you should note that the actual rate provided by specific service
providers may vary dramatically from these upper limits.
Although access speed to the Internet is determined by the service and type of modem connected to your
SpeedStream 2614, data passing between devices connected to your local area network can run up to
100 Mbps over the Fast Ethernet ports!
The SpeedStream 2614 includes an LED display on the front panel for system power and port indicators
that simplify installation and network troubleshooting. It also provides four RJ-45 LAN ports on the front
panel, and one RJ-45 WAN port, one RS232 serial port and one parallel printer port on the rear panel:
•
(1) RS232 serial port to connect to an ISDN Terminal Adapter (TA) or to a PSTN analog modem.
•
(1) Parallel printer port that can be connected to a printer. This printer can then be shared by any LAN
users.
•
(4) RJ-45 LAN ports for connection to a 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN).
2-1
These ports can auto-negotiate the operating speed to 10/100 Mbps, the mode to half/full duplex, and the
pin signals to MDI/MDI-X, allowing these ports to be connected to any network device with straightthrough cable. The ports can be connected directly to a computer or to a server equipped with an Ethernet
network interface card, or to a networking device such as an Ethernet hub or switch.
•
(1) RJ-45 WAN port for connection to an xDSL or cable modem. This port is fixed at 10 Mbps fullduplex and only supports MDI-X pin signals. Consequently, you will have to use either a straightthrough or crossover cable, depending on the port type used with the modem.

Enable Firewall Protection
From the Advanced Setup | Firewall screen, you can enable the SpeedStream 2614 firewall to block
common hacker attacks, including IP Spoofing, Land Attack, Ping of Death, IP with zero length, Smurf
Attack, UDP port loopback, Snork Attack, TCP null scan, and TCP SYN flooding. The firewall does not
significantly affect system performance, so we advise leaving it enabled to protect your network users.
Enable Virtual Server
From the Advanced Setup screen, you can enable Virtual Server. If you configure the SpeedStream 2614 as
a virtual server, remote users accessing services such as Web or FTP at your local site via public IP
addresses can be automatically redirected to local servers configured with private IP addresses. Depending
on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the SpeedStream 2614 redirects the external service
request to the appropriate server located at another internal IP address.
To use the Virtual Server, the WAN interface must have a fixed IP address. Some of the more common
TCP service ports include HTTP: 80, FTP: 21, Telnet: 23 and POP3: 110.
Figure 3-5. Advanced Setup | Virtual Server
1. Specify the Private IP, Private Port, Type, and Public Port information.
2. Click Enter to save the settings and continue.

information.
4. Click Copy to to enter that information in the Public Port boxes on the designated line.
Network Address Translation (NAT)
Network Address Translation, or NAT, is automatically enabled when you enable multi-user Internet
access or enable the Virtual Server function. NAT provides multiple users with access to the Internet via a
single user account, or maps the local address for an IP server (such as Web or FTP) to a public address.
This secures your network from direct attack by hackers, and provides more flexible management by
allowing you to change internal IP addresses without affecting outside access to your network.
Configure Special Applications
Use the Advanced Setup menu to configure applications that require multiple connections, such as
Internet games, video-conferencing, and Internet telephony. These applications may not work when

TROUBLESHOOTING
This section describes common problems you may encounter and their possible solutions. Use the panel
indicators to monitor and identify problems with the SpeedStream 2614. If you cannot resolve any
connection problems after checking the indicators, refer to the following table.

•
External power supply has failed or is disconnected.
•
Check connections between the SpeedStream 2614, the external power supply, and
the wall outlet.
•
If the power indicator does not turn on when the power cord is plugged in, you may
have a problem with the power outlet, power cord, or external power supply.
•
If the unit powers off after running for a while, check for loose power connections,
power losses or surges at the power outlet.
•
If you still cannot isolate the problem, then the external power supply may be
defective. In this case, contact Siemens Technical Support for assistance.
•
Verify that the SpeedStream 2614 and attached device are powered on.
•
Be sure the cable is plugged into both the SpeedStream 2614 and the corresponding
device.
•
Verify that the proper cable type is used and that its length does not exceed the
specified limits.
•
Be sure that the network interface on the attached device is configured for the proper
communication speed and duplex mode.
•
Check the adapter on the attached device and cable connections for possible defects.
Replace any defective adapter or cable if necessary.
Network Connection Problems
Cannot ping the
•
SpeedStream 2614
from the attached
LAN, or the
SpeedStream 2614
cannot ping any
device on the attached
LAN
•
Verify that the IP addresses are properly configured. For most applications, you
should use the SpeedStream 2614 DHCP function to dynamically assign IP addresses
to any host on the attached LAN. However, if you manually configure any IP
addresses on the LAN, verify that the same network address (network component of
the IP address) and subnet mask are used for both the SpeedStream 2614 and any
attached LAN devices.
Be sure the device you want to ping (or from which you are pinging) has been
configured for TCP/IP.
Management Problems
Cannot connect using •

Be sure you configured the SpeedStream 2614 with a valid IP address, subnet mask
and default gateway.
•
Check that you have a valid network connection to the SpeedStream 2614 and that the
port you are using has not been disabled.
•
Check the network cabling between the management station and the SpeedStream
2614.
•
Press the Reset button on the front panel (holding it down for at least five seconds) to
restore the factory defaults.

Twisted-pair Cable
Caution:
DO NOT plug a phone jack connector into any RJ-45 port. Use only twisted-pair cables with
RJ-45 connectors that conform with FCC standards.
For 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX connections, a twisted-pair cable must have two pairs of wires. Each wire
pair is identified by two different colors. An RJ-45 connector must be attached to both ends of the cable.
Except for the WAN port, all RJ-45 ports on the SpeedStream 2614 support automatic MDI/MDI-X
configuration, so you can use straight-through cable to attach the LAN ports to any network device.
However, when connecting the WAN port to a broadband modem, you will need to use either straightthrough or crossover cable, depending on the port type used on the modem.
The figure below illustrates how the pin numbering on the RJ-45 connector. Be sure to hold the connectors
in the same orientation when attaching the wires to the pins.

All LAN ports on the SpeedStream 2614 support automatic MDI/MDI-X configuration. This means that
the pin signals in use will depend on whether the LAN port is operating in MDI or MDI-X mode. The
WAN port is configured only for MDI-X mode.
