    Default How to connect BSNL modem DNA A 201BEI to Linksys N300 Wi-Fi Wireless Router

    I understand from reading some related posts that using the Linksys installation CD is not going to help.
    I am a tech-layperson. For e.g.I searched and found a previous post, in which the OP was asked to set PPOe to "always on". I can't make out where I should find PPOe etc.
    So, please give me step-by-step instructions.
    Here's some info based on ipconfig:
    host name: home-e3b3cae673
    primary dns suffix: (blank)
    node type:unknown
    IP Routing enabled: NO
    WINS Proxy Enabled: NO

    Ethernet adapter local area connection: (blank)
    connection-specific DNS SUffix: (blank)
    Description: Realtek RTL8139 family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC
    Physical Address: 00-13-D4-20-C2-46
    IP Address:
    Subnet Mask:
    Default Gateway:
    DHCP Server:
    Lease Obtained: 7/28/2013 1:00:58 PM
    Lease Expires: 7/29/2013 1:00:58 PM
    DNS Server:
    WINS Server:

    Thank you so much.

    what is the ip address of your modem? if its the same, then there will be a conflict and you might not get internet connection to pass through the router.
    first of all, set the ip address of you wifi router to something other than (perhaps use

    connecting your bsnl modem to your computer, access its config page and on the page where it asks for ur bsnl username and passwd, set it to bridged mode.
    then connect the modem to the router and the router to the computer (wired connection just for the first config). go into this router's config page and find the options for internet connection, use pppoe and enter your username and password there.

    You should now have a working net connection.

    the logic behind this is that, when just the modem has only 1 computer connecting to the net, then the username and password must be authenticated from the modem. If there are more than one computer connecting to the net, (as in your case with a wifi router) then the user name and password must be authenticated off the router, and to prevent the modem from doing the same alongwith the router, we put it into bridged mode.
