Setup Airtel broadband connection

December 2016

Sometimes you may face a problem with an Airtel broadband connection with the router settings and network connections already in place. The LAN icon shows that the internet is connected but the website says "Page cannot be displayed". In this case make sure that the lights on the modem are green. If not, reconnect all the wires including the wire connecting USB or LAN. If the lights are green and you are still unable to access the web page then open the internet browser and enter the appropriate IP address in the address bar. A DSL router which manages the connection and sharing of the DSL service in the network will open after entering the Username and Password. Make the changes on the modem settings and reboot your modem. Restart your PC to access the internet.

Issue



I took an Airtel broadband connection a couple of days back. The router settings and the network connection (IP address) have been set. The LAN icon shows that it's connected but when I try to open a website it says "Page cannot be displayed"; this happens in IE and Firefox. The service people could not figure out what is wrong. I'm using a Laptop Compaq nx6320. The router and the phone connections are working fine. Could there be a problem with the hardware? I have no idea what to do. Can someone please help me.?

Solution

  • Step1)

Make sure all the lights are green on the modem. If not, re-connect all the wires and also the wire that connects to USB or LAN.

If they are already green then there is a problem with your Modem connection or with your wires or ISP.
  • Step2)

If all the lights are green on the modem and you are still unable to access the internet, open your internet browser and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter.

A window will pop up; enter the following:

Username = user
Password = password

DSL Router will open and you have to make some changes in the modem settings.
  • Step3)

In the left sidebar click on WAN and a new page will open.

Click EDIT and click Next until you get to click on SAVE and then click on Save/Reboot.

When you click on Save/Reboot your modem will restart and wait until all the lights on the modem are green. Now restart your PC and you will be able to access the internet.
