    Lightbulb Setup of BSNL ADSL Modem/Router (UT300R2U) with Linksys Wireless Router (WRT54G)

    Repost of the guide in forum text format ...

    Setup of BSNL Dataone ADSL Modem/Router (UT300R2U) with Linksys Wireless Router (WRT54G)

    Assumptions:
    • Windows XP with SP2
    • BSNL DataOne Broadband Plan
    • ADSL Modem/Router (UT-300R2U)
    • Linksys Wireless Router (WRT54G)

    Preliminary Steps:
    • Ensure that the router is not connected to the PC and router is powered OFF.
    • Install the UT300R2U router drivers from the CD provided.
    • After the drivers are installed connect the router via the USB port in the sequence shown in the picture attached


    • Power on the router.
    • Make sure that the router is recognized by Windows/XP.
    • Keep your BSNL DataOne username and password ready.

    Step 1: Configuration of UT-300R2U

    The UT-300R2U is a modem/router and its IP default address is 192.168.1.1. To set it up, you must access the web setup page. To access the web setup page, it depends upon how your desktop/laptop is connected to the modem. If you connect using Ethernet LAN (RJ45) cable then the web page is accessed from http://192.168.1.1. On the other hand if the modem is connect via USB (and this is how most people will connect to the modem), the web setup page is accessed via http://192.168.1.2.
    1. Open browser and go to page http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.1.2
    2. Login as 'admin'; default password is 'admin'.

    3. The first page that you will see is the Wizard page. Click on the 'Run Wizard' button. If you are not on the 'Wizard' page, click on the 'Wizard' button on the left had side panel.
    4. Setup a Bridge connection by following the next set of screenshots:


      Click next ...


      Set the time zone to IST and click next …


      Select the Bridge Mode option and click next …


      Leave the defaults on this page and click next …


      You are done. Click the “Restart” icon …

    Default

    You will see the following screen. Let the modem/router reboot and then
    you will see the see the next screen …



    After some time the message will go away and you will see the following screen:


    Click “Exit”.

    Other Settings
    You will see the router page again after router reboots. Click on the DHCP button on the left panel and ensure the following:


    Click on the apply button. Now change the default ‘admin’ password. On the top panel, click on the “Tools” tab.
    You will be on the “Admin” screen (if not click the “Admin” button on the LHS panel).

    Change the administrator password to something other than ‘admin’. Make a note of it.


    Click on ‘Apply’ icon.

    Click on the ‘Status’ tab and check that PVC-0 is connected.

    Click on the ‘Status’ tab and check that PVC-0 is connected.

    Default Configuration of Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router

    Step 3: Configuration of Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router

    • Ensure that the Linksys WRT54G is switched off (unpowered).
    • Connect your Desktop/Laptop to WRT54G using an Ethernet cable (use one of LAN 1~4 ports of WRT54G).
    • Connect the LAN port of UT-300R2 to Internet Port of WRT54G (sometimes this does not work;
    • in that case use one of the LAN 1~4 ports of WRT54G)
    • Power up the router.

    The figure below shows complete connection:


    • From the web browser, open the page http://192.168.1.1
    • You will see the login page as follows. The default username and password are ‘admin’ and ‘admin’ respectively.
    • If you have changed the password use the appropriate password. Screen below:


      .
    • The first step is to setup the PPPoE connection. You will need the BSNL provided username and password. Screen below:


      .
    • You must change the WRT54G router IP address. I suggest using an IP address such as 192.168.2.1. The subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0. Click on ‘Save Settings’. Screen below:

      If you change the router IP address you will get the ‘Login’ dialog box again.


      .
    • Next click on the ‘Wireless’ tab. Here we shall set the SSID and wireless security. First select the sub-tab ‘Basic Wireless Settings’ (you should be there already). The default Wireless Network Name is ‘linksys’. Change this to something different and unique to you.

      Leave the Wireless Channel to 6 (default). If wireless channel is set to 1 or 2, you will get interference from other devices such as cordless telephones, microwaves, etc.

      Screen below:


      .
    • Next click on the sub-tab ‘Wireless Security’.
    • The default Security mode is ‘Disabled’. Change it to ‘WPA Personal’.
    • Chose the algorithm as ‘TKIP’ or ‘AES’. I suggest ‘TKIP” because I had trouble connecting my wi-fi Windows Mobile phone (O2 XDA IIi) to the wireless network when the algorithm was set to ‘AES’.
    • Next choose a really long WPA key. Make it as long as possible using a fair bit of alpha-numeric characters – upper and lower case, special characters, etc. Mine is 42 characters long. Here is a good example:

      Code:
      Iw@ntLinks&sToConn3tw|thmY8SnLmOD3m-g00dl*cK
    • Do not worry about the long key; you will need it to enter it once only for any wireless connection; but note it down somewhere.
    • Click on ‘Save Settings’. Screen below:


      .
    • The last steps are to change the default administrator password and check the status of the internet connection.
    • First change the administrator password from the ‘Administration’ tab.
    • Click on ‘Save Settings’ button. You will now get the ‘Login’ dialog box again.


      .
    • After logging in again, click on the ‘Status’ tab. You should see the ‘connected’ message and have a real IP
      address for your connection.



    You are done and now you are all set for a wireless connection at home.

    This concludes the guide.

    Default Failing on the last step

    Thanks for this very detailed and well-written guide.
    I've followed all the steps given here but in the end last step i.e. checking the status, it shows as disconnected. When I click on connect manually it says "Cannot get an ip address from PPOPoE Server". Any idea what could be wrong?

    The wireless network shows up on my cellphone and it connects to it too but wifi isn't really working i.e. I can't bring up any webpage.

    This means that the modem is not configured properly. Check the VPI/VCI values for the ISP. It could also mean that the ISP authentication server is down and unable to verify credentials.

    good guideance Just4Kix!!... I hav a doubt.. is the type 2 modem of bsnl requires any further router ? if no, then, my laptop does not connect through wifi.. if my desktop (which is connected through ethernet cable) is switched off... (I made the modem in PPPoE mode and wifi enable etc etc).. wifi in laptop works only when the desktop is on.... Any REASON >>

    How can i overcome this problem ? ( is there any solution, so that only the modem shall be on and able to connect through wifi ?) thanks..

    Type 2 modem is ADSL+WiFi. No second modem required.

    You have bridged the desktop LAN to wireless. Unbridge it.

    Reset the modem to factory setting and (re)configure as mentioned in this thread.

    I have the same modem just renamed to T-KD 318-EUI (don't know why ; for mtnl I guess).
    I have a query. This modem has a usb port. Can we use this modem for torrent downloading ?

    Yes. You can use the modem for torrents. Torrents have nothing to do with modems. As long as port is open and internet is working, your torrents will work.

    Thnx for replying.
    Sorry I wasn't clear. I have been using torrents for a time now.
    I want to download even when pc is off .
    Something which this router do-
    Asus RTN13U

    If this can't be done by this modem please provide an alternative.
    Something for which I wouldn't have to buy adsl modem + router.
    By the way can I combine RTN13U with my current modem for my torrent purpose or would I have to buy another modem ?
    If there is an adsl modem with this torrent feature then it would be great as I will be able to return my current modem get somewhere around 800rs

    Sorry. I am not very up-to-date with torrents. I know some bits and pieces and about port forwarding. But that's it.

    Hi,

    Could you tell me how to configure the router as Access Points / Repeaters?? I am able to make an Access Point, but no repeater! Do you have any clue?

    Thanks for the detailed steps. I am also failing at the last step; the router is giving an error "Cannot get an ip address from PPOPoE Server".

    What should i change in the VPI/VCI values for the ISP?

    For BSNL the VPI/VCI values are 0/35 respectively. For most others, it is 0/32. Check with ISP.
