    Default Configuring DLink DIR 600M?

    Can someone please tell me how can I configure DLink DIR 600M Router? I have MTNL Broadband connection. There is no useful information available on the internet and I am confused.
    Thank You.

    Please have a look at this router setup guide as everything is similar. The values you need for MTNL are : VPI = 0, VCI = 32

    D link modem's are a pain in the behind to setup. The firmware is unintuitive, confusing, and downright absurd. Couldn't you have done some research on modems and routers before buying one?

    I have been advising people for ages, on this forum and in real life, to not buy D-Link modems till they fix the FUBAR firmware.

    Most modems and routers are straightforward to setup. You type in the ip address in a browser, log in, and go to the setup page, enter information, and done.

    In d-link shitty modems, you have to create a new profile with some technical information (VPI / VCI) which you should do properly, else the profile never appears in the list. Then edit that profile, enter username and password for the connection authentication, save, then in the list, connect. In case you do something wrong, good luck following that track again. Firstly, good luck finding the page where you are supposed to enter all this information.

    Why D-Link messed up with the earlier firmware front end is beyond me. There are 12 year experienced IT-Support people in my earlier office who had a hard time setting up a d-link modem. They still use netgears and older d-links. For new modems (or modem + routers) I highly recommend Zyxel, Netgear, Belkin, in that order.

    Ha ha ha I bought one myself and later found out that I made a fool of myself.

    It was a pain to set up and it took me a while to do that. I wrote a tutorial with a screen shot of every single step one needs to take for 2750U but even then I get personal messages saying it didint work. Also the USB port only takes Dlink USB modem and other brands wont work. Dlink really needs to get their act together.


    I have always had a great experience with Netgear.

    Anyone have a manual for this thing? I can't find a DIR-600M anywhere on dlink's sites. My inlaws just got one as part of their new ACT install.

    PS. I second the recommendation on Zyxel. Their product philosophy rocks! I can't wait to upgrade all our gear.
