I have a BSNL broadband Type II WiFi connection. I have a DNS-A211-I modem. I can connect my laptop to the internet using an Ethernet cable, but I am struggling to do so using the wireless connection. I have managed to achieve this by enabling "Internet Connection Sharing" from my desktop PC, but this solution is far from ideal as it requires both machines to be on in order to use the internet from the laptop.

Desktop OS: Windows XP
Laptop OS: Vista


What you have to do is:
  • Open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type in: and hit enter
    • This will take you to the modem admin page
  • Here use the default username and password, which is "admin" in both cases, to log into the modem console
  • On the left hand side you will see connection types, choose PPPoE and then on the right hand side of the screen you will be asked for the username and password again.
  • Here you need to provide the username and password provided to you by BSNL
  • Leave the next few screens unchanged and simply press Next
  • On the last screen click the Save and Reboot button
  • This will reboot the modem and you will see the lights blinking on the modem
    • Wait until all four lights are more or less stable
  • Go to the Network connections tab on your PC or laptop and right click on the Local Area Connection icon
  • Select Properties and in the next dialog box select the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) and then click on Properties
  • Make sure "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS automatically" are selected
  • Click OK and close

You should now have a wireless connection.
