    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Double posts will get you nowhere man... just go to your nearest BSNL office and register a request to give you your username and pass. Keep your figners crossed and pray that you'll get them

    Default Desprate

    Doctor,

    I was so desprate to get the username and password that i realized later I made a double post. Sorry about that.

    Anyway i have been trying to get it form the BSNL but there is no response from them even after giving a written request. I am trying to get the user name and password from February. Seems their communication is not as fast as their internet and one could never get through their call center number.

    BSNL needs to resolve these kind of issues fast as i am sure I might not be the only person who had forget the password and username.

    Mathan.

    NP man...

    So it seems that plain 'ol requests will not work. Might I suggest that you visit your BSNL office and talk to the head of that office. Tell them about your grieviences and he might be able to help you. Don't talk to the lowlife customer care reps...

    Thumbs up pass word for netone/bsnl.

    Go to the concerned telephone exchange and ask for the telecom engineer concerned with internet. U can access their telehone numbers from bsnl.co.in/directory enquiry. Explain him personally and request him by a letter to reset your pass word. They cannot give you ur old pass word but they will reset and give you a new pass word. later u can change ur pass word.

    Technical people are located in telephone exchange. by the way u have not mentioned ur location.

    If you can still connect to internet then their might be possibility to recover your password from the modem itself. If you are new broadband user with IP starting 117.*.*.* and you changed your bb password then the same may be recovered from the modem. But if you changed your portal password than only BSNL people can help in this. You can use password recovery tools for the same.

    if you want to recover portal ID(14 characters long different from the bsnl ID you use to connect to net) then you have to contact BSNL.if its the BSNL ID you lost(used to connect to net)then it can be recovered easily from the modem.

    We want to change our adsl modem (DLink 302T) to a wireless router.

    I have forgotten my login password with BSNL Dataone. Can I recover this password from the existing modem or do I need to go to BSNL?

    I am based in Bangalore.

    When one first gets the broadband connection from BSNL Dataone, they give a password. Its a standard format I think eg user name+123. Any one remember what that password is?

    Any help is welcome, don't fancy going to BSNL for this!

    username is created as follows(i think) for connecting to internet

    username: customer's name(shortest possible)_your city name
    password : password

    by default password is password


    if you have forgotten your login password(to enter into the modem config. page) try resetting the modem and then your login password will be

    username: admin
    password: admin

    if your an old user of bsnl.. then this is how the default password goes..
    example:
    username : broadband
    password : banbro123

    password is ban+first 3 letters of username+123
    where ban stands for bangalore

    Approach your BSNL SSA head office broadband section

    If u have not changed the user name and password then go for this option

    Contact any one in your same SSA with BSNL broad band connection and check the username and password issued. Change the first few letters of that
    username according to your name. Initial password will be same to all. In some areas it is "password".

    Have a similar problem with my Dataone connection password. Still remember my username but although I have saved my password (in the connection window where it gives the option of saving PW) I don't remember it. Am scared that if someone deletes it by mistake or clicks on the tick mark then I'm screwed. Good thing is that I can surf for now but is there any way to find out what it was?
    Thanks.

    You can get webmail id and password from your local telephone exchange. They have the record. Try it.

    The webmail id most likely is your surname then underscore then initial of your name and middle name and password is "password" ( ex. sharma_ab@bsnl.in )

    To know your broadband uses without portal id or password refer the following thread
