    Default Accessing WLAN from UTStartcom wifi modem

    hello all,
    i have Nokia E51 and a UTStarcom wifi modem
    i had to access internet from my phone using this modem
    i searched a lot to get the solution but found none.
    even the modem support was dead dumb.
    and guess who gave me solution ???
    a BSNL officer@my villages's BSNL office (m still in shock !!)
    solution is quit simple

    1.just open the web interface for modem/router config.
    http://192.168.1.1
    2.advanced setup
    3.WAN
    4.edit the entry with vpi/vci 0/35
    dont change anything else in the settings
    just click next next till you get ppp username,ppp password like fields
    5.once you get it enter your broadband username and password here
    authentication should be set to AUTO.
    6.enable wireless from wireless section
    7.save setttings and reboot

    thats it now u should be able to access WLAN

    NOTE :: c ur internet becomes ALWAYS ON because of these settings.

    Default how about IPOD Touch ?

    Hi Abhijeet:

    I asked a same kinda question about a minute ago. I am buying a IPOD touch, but, wanted to know how to surf internet wirelessly using BSNL, since IPOD can connect to wi-fi. I am not sure if BSNL is wi-fi. Also, can you tell what router should I use ?

    BSNL provides wifi router with boradband connection
    you have to explicitly mention this in application form as TYPE II modem
    you can also purchase from outside,but BSNL does provide good modems,configuration is also very easy
    @my side its UTStrarcom WA3002G4 wireless router/modem
    it provides 4 Ethernet LAN ports and a wifi antena
    with wifi speed between router and your wireless device can go upto 54 Mbps !!

    speedd while surfing too is dam good ,so u can 4 sure go 4 bsnl

    can u plz tell the model of ur BSNL modem?
    i've given some settings for the modem@the begginig of this set
    witha little bit difference all modems have same settings
    cos,@the end we jus have to make the modes setting "Always On" for internet
    since our phone is not able to dial a connection,we have to username and password in the modem only.

    once your modem is ready with settitngs u just have to create access point in e51 and you can surf net

    so do mention your modem make n ill tell u wat 2 do nxt

    enter that ip address (which is of your modem) in a web browsers Address Bar(i.e.Internet Explorer,Mozilla Firefox)...then the web interface will open up just like any other web site

    as u r able to open 192.168.1.1 from your wifi device your WLAN connectivity is OK

    problem lies in making the modem "ALWAYS ON"

    please see the instruction once again
    especially advanced settings->WAN-> in this the entry pppoe eith 0/35

    make sure to save/reboot after you make changes stated on page one

    in your phone settings enable get IP address & dns address automatically.also if there is a gateway option in phone set it to 192.168.1.1
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    I have tired all the options as suggested by you but could not get the desired result, i.e. could not connect with my e51 and wireless router.
    Then I had to manuualy assign an ip address in the phone and gateway address was set as 192.168.1.1 then it started to work.
    The setting was given by one of the BSNL employees.

    may be this is because DHCP server at you UTStarcom router is turned off...

    No my DHCP server option was on , as my laptop connects with automatic ip address whereas my e51 did not.

    thanks so much abhijit....i'm using a ZTE wifi modem & was dying to connect my nokia e51 thru wlan. After making the changes as suggested by you, the damn thing is working yaar...moreover, now i can also connect my playstation portable thru wlan..bingo...apun ki to lottery lag gayi boss...thanks again. And yes, for people who r still struggling, kindly note that u also need to define an access point in ur cell, and then edit the settings..just make sure that the WLAN network mode shud be selected to "infrastructure" (though i didnt try ad-hoc as infrastructure is working fine :-) )same goes for the PSP too!!!

    regards,

    I have a E51 and I have done as you have pointed out.
    I get "No Gateway Reply".
    I have a WA1003A wifi modem from Dataone, BSNL.
    What settings have you used in E51?

    I have managed to get wifi running.
    The problem was that DHCP server was not
    enabled on modem/router.

    Another problem..:-(
    How to use DNS...It is a bit slow.
    In E51 I have option of DNS but desktop
    cannot use DNS now in PPPoE mode.
