    Ok, so u want to use BSNL modem with your Airtel connection. Right?

    Yes it can be done. Since both BSNL and Airtel are providing DSL services. And the modems are not locked to some particular network.

    @bondshiva
    Both modems are almost identical. ( see modem settings pages except Wireless Not available in beetel 110BX1)

    Select VPI/VCI 0 and 35 for BSNL
    Select VPI/VCI 1 and 32 for Airtel.

    Keep existing entries for AIRTEL.
    You can use a single/any modem for either ISP.

    In "Bridged" mode Dialup enter ID password externally.
    In "AlwaysOn"PPP/PPPoE userid and PW entered in WAN page.
    ( for BSNL BB @ dataone.in or @ bsnl.in may be omitted)

    5Follow settings given in the Chennai link
    6. Confirm Internet works.

    7.Keep the Lan cable connected
    8and program modem/router DNA.A211-1 for wireless.
    ( All adsl modems routers wif routers 3-in one can be used for All ISPs. )
    Item 15 onwards.
    9.Try unsecured first.
    10.Then security key.

    11. Post your ipconfig/all data
    Start/ run type cmd type ipconfig /all

    Reply by number. or like this .

    Do a hard reset of the router, using a small pin in the hole found behind the router. Hold the pin for atleast 10 secs before releasing it.

    Note the following properties which are to be ensured for seamless connectivity :

    PVC : PVC0
    VPI : 1
    VCI : 32
    Virtual Circuit : enabled
    Wan Setting : PPPoE or PPPoA
    Username :
    Password :
    Authentication Type : Auto
    Connection Type : PPPoE LLC (Not sure about this part for Airtel Broadband)

    Setting all these correctly in the modem should make the connection work flawlessly. Bothe BSNL and Airtel use DSL technology, hence the modem can be interchanged. I am using a Reliance Broadband modem with my BSNL connection.

    Hi everyone, I tried everything, but in vain !

    Now, the issue is, when connected to the Airtel DSL cable and LAN, my BSNL model does not glow lights for INET, DSL and WLAN

    When I connect back my Airtel modem (Beetel 110TC1), the connection works fine....

    Can I ever use my BSNL Wifi router (DNA-A211-1) with my Airtel broadband connection ?????????

    VPI/VCI 1 and 32 (if airtel DNS used not known )change to 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222
    in modem menu item DNS.

    select a link with screen shots. say 7.
    try LAN port ethernet port first.

    Thanks for the reply Essbebe.

    My biggest issue now is that I am unable to find any light (except for Power) on my BSNL modem when I plug it in with the DSL and Ethernet wires

    Only when I get some connection, I can configure the WAN/LAN settings

    Try connecting the DNA211-I modem directly to the
    Phone junction.
    Rj11 from Phone Junction to above router.

    Lan1 to computer ethernet port.

    Unhappy

    Thanx once again Essbebe,

    I connected the RJ11 directly from the line junction box to the BSNL modem and also the Ethernet cable to Ethernet Port # 1 of the modem.

    Still the same. Only the Power LED was glowing. I tried a modem reset (pressing the button using a pointed metal I have for 40 seconds) still no use.

    Now I am replying to you by connecting back the Beetel modem (line directly from the line junction).

    What could be wrong ?? This way, I cannot either update the software for DNA-A211-I or configure setting on 198.168.1.1
