Hi, I am receiving many mails requesting help on how to configure the router...
so i am writing this tutorial...to the best of my knowledge...please add additional information if you know any...
connect the router properly...you get 4 slots to connect different computers via lan...
dont use the bsnl cd....it wont work...call center guys also dont know how to configure..
open ur internet browser and type 192.168.1.1 and click enter....
enter both username and password as admin..
1......to set up a connection
go to configuration/ internet connection
you will see serval entries, but the first one will be something like pppoe_0_35 or something like that....
click edit at the end...
vpi 0 vci 35....click next until you reach a page :
Internet Connection Configuration
Configure Broadband User Name and Password
servicename is dataone
type in username and password given by bsnl....
select always on option...
this way your connection will be always on....otherwise just leave it blank, and dial using the dialer ..
2...wireless settings(wifi)....
go to wireless network under configuration on the left...
select enable wireless network...
SSID : give anyname u want.(for example prabhu1729)
this is the name you will see in the wireless devices when u try to connect to the net
you will see prabhu1729 in the list of wifi routers...then you have to enter the password you will give below...
Select Security Option: wpa mixed mode (you can use others, but this is more secure)
Select Authentication Method: psk
type in ur choice of password and confirm.....
go to MAC ADDRESS FILTER....in the same page of wireless network....
Select MAC Auth : disable is best option
otherwise enter the mac address of all your wireless devices
3...setting static ip address(this is not a good idea coz it will reduce ur security online, but some softwares need a static ip address, for example p2p networks. this is not needed for regular internet usage or wifi)
under configuration, left side menu, you will see, DHCP server...click that
...go to advanced settings....
under server pools....
see what the starting and ending ip addresses are..click edit..
under pool ranges,
remove the last ip address by selecting one less than the last ip address...
for ex. 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.17 you enter, end ip address as 192.168.1.16, and use 1.17 as ur static ip address from ur control panel/network and internet connections/network connections /properties/internet protocol(tcp/ip)/properties/
use the following ip address/
there u can set 192.168.1.17 as ip address, 255.255.255.0 as subnet mask and 192.168.1.1 as default gateway...
dns server is also 192.168.1.1
4...port forwarding...(you only need this for p2p softwares and such, not needed for regular usage or wifi)
go to security / portforwarding.....
userdefined/
click add , and enter ip address which u selected in the above procedure... (192.168.1.17) at the Forward to Internal Host IP Address:
enter the port you want to open in all the fields... and apply
5...Updating the firmware of the router...(not required to make it work, but improves performance)
download it here http://www.motive.bsnl.co.in/ this file and self care kit will not be added in your download quota by bsnl... self care kit is the same thing you get in the bsnl cd....it wont work...just download the cpe firmware upgrade...~3mb
instructions are given in the file...if u update ur router, it will work better...otherwise sometimes you will get disconnected...
5...DNS(if you are having problems browsing like slow loading or webpage not found)
In your network connections
enter
Primary DNS 218.248.255.147
Secondary DNS 218.248.255.146
start/control panel/network and internet connetions/network connections/local area connection which you are using to connect
right click/properties/tcp-ip/properties...click ok and close
