    Default Bsnl wimax

    Hello i have purchased BSNL Wimax Soma 400. An ethernet cable from device to my computer is connected. I need to access net on muliple computers, i have a switch DLink but it does not work.

    They say a router is needed, has anyone been able to get this work?

    The router its WAN port is it RJ-11 or RJ-45 and any idea its price in India?

    BTW i called a BSNL tech and he tells any wifi dsl router will do, a cable from the soma network device (ethernet ) has to fit in a wan port of the router (so its RJ-45) and all computers can connect via LAN, Laptop can connect to it using wifi.

    Any other routers which can do the job as in name brand, dont want an expensive one to buy

    1.
    The router (*wifi) its WAN port is it RJ-11 or RJ-45 and any idea its price in India?
    ALWAYS RJ45 for a wifi router.
    You can try Netgear wgr614V9 wifi router with 4 lan ports.
    2.
    Usually the Rj45 carries some D.C in addition to signals
    PoE ( power over ethernet ). for a Wimax setup.
    3.
    I am not sure , where the modem is installed.
    At the Mast head ( antenna outside ) , or in your room.
    4.
    If in your room ,a coaxial cable may be connected to the modem
    and the lan wire rj45 can connect to computer (or WIFI router WAN port ).
    5.
    If you can access the modem menu pages
    Annex as screenshot(jpg) Device status or connection status.
    6.

    Also confirm whether you use a dialer ,
    ( userId and PW entered in a window in computer )
    or the internet connects automatically.

    Feedback item wise please.

    You can try and test
    with a borrowed WIFI router such as
    Netgear wgr614v9 and connect the Rj45 cable to its WAN
    (Internet port ).
    I am not sure this will work.
    Anyway please copy/paste following data here.
    ipconfig /all
    Procedure:
    In computer
    START RUN type cmd
    OK
    New window
    typeipconfig /all
    Para two:
    2. In case customer wants to purchase the WiMAX CPE directly from BSNL, the same can be sold to customer with the following sale price.
    Sale price in Rs.*
    1Indoor-CPE 4200
    2.Outdoor-CPE 5000
    3 CPE-PCM-CIA/USB 2800
    Which one you purchased?

    Para three:
    Not much information here.

    I just connected the RJ45 cable from the wimax modem to one LAN port of my Beetel 450TC1 ADSL2+ Wifi router. Voila... it worked as normal Wifi router and I am able access the wimax modem diagnosis page from my Laptop.. [
    Connect to WAN/Internet Port or LAN1
    of Belkin wifi router .
    Mention type of wimax modem supplied to you.
    If USB type above will not work.
    feedback.
    Belkin model type/number. required.
    1. Connect the ethernet (RJ-45) cable (white colour) coming out from Power over Ethernet (POE) to WAN port of the router. At back side of the router your can see 5 RJ-45 ports, out of this 1 for WAN and rest 4 for LAN.
    2. Connect your network card of desktop pc or laptop to any of the LAN port of the router.
    3. Switch off the power to POE
    4. Go to >>>Control panel >> Network >> Local Area Connection >>> Properties >>> Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) >>> Properties >>> Select obtain IP address automatically.
    5. Go to Command prompt and type ipconfig/all you should get the details as below

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.100
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

    6.Open your browser (IE / Firefox) and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press ENTER
    7. It will prompt for username and password type “admin” for both username and password. Now you are under settings page of your router.
    8. Under Setup >>> Basic Setup ,Change the Local IP Address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2 (This is very important, because the Subscriber Station (receiver or SS) will have ip address as 192.168.1.1 )
    9.Under Setup >>> MAC Address Clone >>> Enable >>> Click “Clone your PC’s MAC” . Then Save settings.
    10.Switch on the power to POE and allow atleast 2 mins to complete hand shaking.
    11. Under Status >>> Router >>> you can see as below
