I recently got BSNL Broadband connection.
The internet is working fine in my Laptop. But the Ethernet is not working in my Desktop. So I want to connect to internet using USB.
CASE 1 Laptop:
I first thought of trying USB connectivity in my Laptop and then trying in Desktop.
The modem provided by BSNL is DNA A201BEI. They gave a CD (ADSL2 + CPE/Router WiFi-TA) along with it. I could find only one setup file 'VMC PPPoE Dialer Installer.msi' in it along with few Drivers for various OS. Even after installing it the USB is not working.
I also tried downloading drivers for DNA A201 BEI and followed the instructions to install the driver. After turning on the modem with USB connected, I got found new hardware for 'RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget', then the regular installation dialogs. I selected the folder where I have the drivers. Even then the setup ends unsuccessfully with the message, "The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software".
How can I ensure USB connection.? Is there any other drivers or something that needs to be installed.? Why am I facing this problem.?
CASE 2 Desktop:
I am not getting any Found new hardware pop-up dialog at all. After connecting the modem through USB and turning on the modem, everything remains silent. Any idea of why this problem is.?
Till two months back, I was using a BSNL broadband connection in the same desktop in my home town in USB mode. Recently I shifted my PC and got a new broadband connection. The previous modem was a BSNL Huawei Quidway 1003A Modem. The new modem provided by them is DNA A201BEI. The USB cable I am using was provided for my Huawei Quidway Modem. Is this anything to do with the modem.?
Thanks in advance.
