    Default concurrent multiple pppoe logins on same bsnl adsl modem

    hi, here is my problem
    me and my room mate wanted 2 bsnl adsl broadband connections but they have got only 1 port left on the nearest junction (or whatever it is..)
    they said we need to wait for 2 months for another connection
    they have installed 1 adsl modem and it is working fine

    but for some reasons we two want to use separate accounts
    and my room mate is ready to borrow bsnl broadband user id of his colleague for time being

    now my question is if it is possible to configure and use two concurrent pppoe logins on same adsl modem simultaneously if
    we put modem in bridge mode and setup individual account logins in our laptops

    i have read somewhere that it is possible but i doubt bsnl binds user account to phone number in which case above setup doesn't work

    another problem is i dont know basis of bsnl billing, i mean if data is billed on the basis of phone number or account id
    above setup fails if it is done on phone number basis

    any suggestions pls..

    interesting clue, thank you
    let us assume we get port binding disabled on both of our broadband accounts and i understand we can use one account at a time

    my 2nd question remains which is, if it is possible to put adsl modem in bridge mode and can we use our individual accounts simultaneously by dialing pppoe from laptop's operating system?
    if it is possible, how many concurrent connections we can run like that?

    BSNL broadband connections come with port binding and it is not an option so using the same id on different land lines for adsl connections is not possible. You should look at getting a new connection instead.

    nope, this is not about concurrent logins against same user id
    my requirement is opposite of that. i wish to know possibility of using 2 different user accounts out of same adsl modem
    1 native account of that phone connection +1 guest account which belongs to other phone line

    mr. krishnan said port binding can be removed by requesting bsnl and he referred some URL in support of his opinion
    that was the 2nd post in this thread but it got deleted. pls un-delete it
    if it is true, any account can be used on any phone line
    but not at the same time. simultaneous logins are not possible

    now my question is if it is possible to login to 2 pppoe broadband accounts concurrently on the same modem and both users can use their respective account on their computers?

    Who ever is suggesting that port binding can be removed if you send a request to BSNL is either misinformed or is trying to mislead you. Please do not believe everything that is written on websites especially user generated content. That link was removed because the information was misleading and a quick phone call to a BSNL employee confirmed that.

    I have no clue how you could log into two different adsl accounts using one phone line (provided port binding was disabled) because thats not what an adsl modem is designed to do. I would personally just spend Rs500 a buy a new modem or even better pick up a used one from the local shop afterall its just a modem. Having said that, I still maintain that port binding cannot be disabled by BSNL unless someone goes against the norms and does it for you as a favor and I doubt anyone would risk their job for this.

    i could have gone for 2nd modem but the problem is bsnl can not provide us 2nd line right away
    and we 2 users want to keep our data separate for some reasons (refer to my 1st post)

    if port binding disabling is not possible, guest user can go for prepaid bsnl broadband
    they dont have port binding for prepaid accounts. its mentioned on their website

    can we log 2 pppoe accounts simultaneously on a single dsl connection? this is what i want to know from fellow members

    some websites suggested that we can do that by keeping modem in bridge mode and logging either from different computers or from another set of 2 modems connected in daisy to original modem (bridge)

    I have come accorss the "Prepaid broad band connections" from BSNL, although you can't use two accounts in the same landline at a time.
    See if this could help

    That is not going to help because the reason BSNL is not giving a connection is that there are no free ports at the exchange and the exchange is running at max capascity and they expect one port to be free in two months time.

    I believe getting something like a BSNL evdo connection would do the trick for the time being.

    The best solution here is to just use a router and plug it into the modem after the modem is in bridge mode. Then you and your friend can both be online. You can alternate the logins if you want too.
