    Default How to set Modem in Bridged mode and wireless router in PPoE mode

    Hi fuys i got UT-300R2U modem and a WGR614 wireless router ....
    And i have a BSNL BroadBand connection with user name and password.
    Currectly i have my modem working in PPPoE with username and password feeded in the modem .And the router is configured with no user name and password ....
    So can some one tell me how to configure the modem in a bridged mode and the router in PPPoE mode so that i can feed the username and password in the router console to dial it automatically rather than my modem dialling it ....
    Please help.

    are you sure a router can dial?it is a modem's job to dial & unless your router is a modem+router i don't think it can dial.
    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?

    Well actually i thought ...that as we dial from a machine using a dialer via the modem configured in bridged mode .....may be storing the passowrd and username in the router can enable it to dial via the modem....

    Well i dont know how correct is this ..but i can understand what u said that its only the modem that can dial .....so thats what i am saying
    We wil allow the modem to dial but as a dialer can we use router ....?



    Or else take it this way :
    I want to have modem in bridged mode ....and i want to have a wireless router also installed ...so how can i do it ?

    yes you can allow the router to dial.. most wireless routers do have the facility to dial.. so for that you need to setup your bsnl modem in bridged mode and your wifi router in ppoe mode.. but i dont get it.. there is no difference if the modem dials or wifi routers dial..its the same...better leave it as it is... unless you have some specific reason!!

    Actually i am getting some problems while i access certail live exchanges .....
    Hence i thought if i try changing the config may be it will make a difference .
    Well actually doing the reverse will mean the same but i just wanted to try it .....
    If u can let me know the procedure for
    UT-300R2U and WGR614 ......then it will be very helpfulll
    I can put the modem in bridge mode ...but how to put the router in pppoe mode ....is what i am not getting?

    ok.. your answer is right there.. in the screenshot page...Select "YES" for Does your connection require a login ...then some new options will POP OUT..under INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER select OTHER...type your bsnl username and password in the LOGIN and PASSWORD field..
    under DNS ...change it from get automatically from ISP to USE THESE DNS SERVERS..and type the following 2 ips
    208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 ..this is optional by the way.. but its better you use this..then just click on APPLY and you should be done...
    also remember to go to your bsnl modem settings and change from ppoe mode to bridged mode!!!

    Hi ,
    Hey i tried doing so but it didnt work .....
    Let me tell u what i have done :
    I ran the UT-300R2U whizard and configured it for following settings :
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    WAN
    Use this page to quickly configure the system.
    ATM Interface: PVC-0
    VPI: 0
    VCI: 35
    Virtual Circuit: Enabled

    WAN Settings

    Bridge Mode Choose this option if your ISP uses Bridge Mode. (I choose this.)

    Bridge Mode

    Connection Type : 1483 Bridged IP LLC
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I checked by dialing the connection from my windows machine.....the internet got connected and its working fine.
    Now i think my modem got configured in the bridged mode successfully.
    Also the DHCP is configured as saying :

    Please select the appropriate option for the LAN network.
    DHCP Server Choose this option to setup as a DHCP Server to distribute IP addresses to the LAN network. (i have chosen this option.)

    DHCP Server

    Start IP Address: 192.168.1.
    End IP Address: 192.168.1.
    Lease Time :days3

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    After this i disconnected the modem from the machine ...and then i plugged in the router ...and then it took me to the Basic settings page :
    There i set
    the requires username and password option as YES
    And choose
    Other
    entered Username and passowrd ...
    and rest i kept as it is ....



    but still not working.......
    please tell me if i need to post more data for the router and tell me what should i do to get my router in pppoe mode and how to do it ...
    so that ...when i connect my modem to the router and the router to the computer ...i will get internet directly...

    Start IP Address: 192.168.1.
    End IP Address: 192.168.1.
    you mean something like 192.168.1.2 & 192.168.1.20.

    well is DHCP enabled in your netgear?? check that out.. sometimes you may not be given an ip.. there maybe a conflict as to whether your bsnl modem is giving the ip or your netgear is giving the ip.. make sure DHCP is off at one place and on at the other..

    go to the command prompt when your network connection is ON..i.e. when both your modem and router is on.. and type ipconfig in your command prompt.. and post results here.. i still havent got to know whether you are getting an ip address from your modem or router!!!

    Ok ..i did as u said ....
    I am sending u the screen shots ..check them out...

    I got them by connecting Modem in Bridged mode ....and DHCP disabled.
    And router in PPPoE mode and DHCP endbled....

    Hey now i am getting a doubt that does it really work in that manner ..i mean the modem in bridged and router in pppoe mode?Of it has to be vice versa always.....?Now its freaking me out....

    I have posted a guide on this: http://www.indiabroadband.net/bsnl-b...er-wrt54g.html

    The topic covers Linksys router but if you follow the principles you should do same:

    a) First setup UT-300R2U in bridge mode. Use the Wizard with default settings.
    b) Now connect Netgear router to UT-300R2U (Lan port of UT-300R2U to Internet port of Netgear)
    c) Connect your PC to Netgear router via LAN cable and open the Netgear web setup page
    d) Change router IP settings in LAN Settings and set appropriate IP ranges. DHCP must be ON.
    e) Go back to Basic settings, set up the PPPoE options
    f) In Wireless Settings, name and enable SSID, WPA security, etc.

    (At this point, you should be able to connect to internet)

    g) Change 'admin' password in both routers.

    hey are you connecting the cable from your bsnl modem to the WAN PORT of your wifi router.. if you have set the bsnl modem to bridge mode and the wifi router to ppoe mode .. then the cable from bsnl modem should go to WAN port of wifi router.. the WAN port is not a LAN port... its a bit seperate from the LAN ports..
    if you have a 4 port wifi router... then you will have 4 LAN ports with a small seperation and 1 WAN port.. connect it there and check!!

    Hi i did exactly as it was written in the guide u gave ......

    Accidently i found some difference ...
    In the screen shot of the Satus page that u showed for the UT-300R2U modem/router........in ur case it shows as NAT disabled for both LAN -Ethernet and LAN- USB. Wheras in mycase it shows NAT Enabled in both the cases.......



    Also in the WGR614 configuration .....in the router status page again i found a difference ........ In ur case the Under ROUter Status -> Internet Port ->
    DHCP DHCPCLient


    Whereas in my case .... ROUter Status -> Internet Port ->
    DHCP PPPoE



    and under ROUter Status -> Wireless Port ->

    Urcase :

    Mode Auto

    In my case there is not such field saying mode....




    The screen shot that u posted to me for the Router Status ......its for
    WGR614v7 and V1.0.3_1.0.3
    even my is Version 7
    but
    the Firmware Version is different ...in my case its V2.0.23_1.0.23



    regarding success :
    Well i could login into Google talk ..but google.com didnt open nor did hotmail
    gmail login page opened but after signing in nothing opened....
    Nergear website is also not opening ...i am not getting whats wrng ....
    Well will i have to check for that modem ka NAT status
    How will i be able to change it to disabled .....from enabled ...?Cos i didnt find any option given in the UT300R2U for changing NAT ...?
    NAT se farak pad ta hoga kya?

    NAT does not matter in case of Bridge connections. In fact from bridge, it must be disabled. Please re-configure your UT-300R2U in bridge mode by reseting the modem first.

    NAT come into picture only when there is external IP and internal IP (both) are involved. In case of a bridge, there is no external IP.

    For more details on NAT, please refer to my post: http://www.indiabroadband.net/bsnl-b...and-guide.html

    For all the three comments mentioned, I must mention that:

    a) I created the guide from the downloaded user manual
    b) I do not have this router with the latest firmware
    c) Pictures were borrowed (shamelessly) from the manual

    Hence, links and pictures may be incorrect.

    I would like you to completely restart from the beginning. Please reset both routers to factory defaults (I understand that you know how) and restart from beginning.

    Hi buddy i did all the the process again ..
    Reset manually both the devices ..and reconfigured them .....
    but still no success ...
    1 thing i observed ..
    that after i configured the netgear wireless router ....with all the basic settings ..
    I checked the router status page ..and i noticed that netgear is getting the IP from BSNL.

    I tried pinging the id ..its was something 59.95.19.69
    And it got pinged....i mean no packed was dropped ...
    this suggests that ..the netgear router is getting the connection from the modem ...but i am not getting it on the machine .....
    I tried that test button in the basic settings of the netgear page ...but it didnt open the site .....







    For all the three comments mentioned, I must mention that:

    a) I created the guide from the downloaded user manual
    b) I do not have this router with the latest firmware
    c) Pictures were borrowed (shamelessly) from the manual

    Now i am getting fed up by this ..all .......I guess there is a problem with my netgear router .....Its working the other way round ...i mean by putting the modem in pppoe mode and router in bridged ......but i wanted it this way cos ......its giving some problems with the Live Exchange software that i have.

    If u got any further advancements to the configuration i can do ..please tell me ..
    Hey also do me a favour ..if possible add me in ur gmail list
    shriniketsarkar@gmail.com same with yahoo ...
    so that may be i can catch u up online sometime ...we can discuss this ..ofcourse if ur interested in solving my problem.NO offence ment.thanks for all the help ....
    Also thanks to the other guy superprash i guess ....do drop an update if u get and solution.
    regards,
    shriniket sarkar

    It is dangerous to mention emails in public forums as you may get spammed. Use PM for this. I have PMed you my id.

    Of course, I wish to help you and anyone else who can be helped. I cannot claim to be an expert. Have faith. Configuring a router is not easy as stated. Rarely things work out in first go. And when they work out you have a big laugh at yourself because it was a very silly mistake that you did.

    I had a lot of problems with Linksys WRT54G. My other wireless, Airlink 101 AR430W, gave me much less problems.

    The usual culprits are: VCI/VPI (for modem side only), NAT, and MTU. As I said, completely reset both devices and start all over again.

    Since your Netgear router appears to be working in bridge mode (no login required), I very much doubt that it is faulty. Please check whether you have the latest firmware and if not, do upgrade it, but do it carefully. Wrong firmware can damage the router completely byond repair.

    DHCP must be ON on both routers.

    I am also assuming that RJ45 cables are not faulty - especially the one that connects Netgear to UT Starcom.

    During the setup you must use wired connections only. The wired connection should be as follows:

    Telephone Jack ---(RJ11)---> Splitter ---(RJ11)---> UT-300R2U ---(RJ45)---> WGR614 ---(RJ45)---> PC or Laptop.

    Can you also check the following:

    a) whether you are able to ping to the UT-300R2U modem (192.168.1.1).
    b) whether you are able to open the UT-300R2U web config page (http://192.168.1.1) from your PC/Laptop?
    c) Have you set up the correct region and channel in WGR614?

    Actually i checked for the firmware lot before ...but my version seems to be the latest available on the netgear site ....its
    WGR614v7 Firmware 2.0.23_1.0.23
    And it says that u cant upgrade to WGR614v8/9 firmware cos reverse compatibility is not supported hence i am on the latest firmware as per the netgear site.

    Regarding the LAN wires buddy i guess the are ok cos they allow me to do all the lan functionality.

    Also i have done the setup of both the devices as u said above ......
    I am getting ping for the modem and the config page is also opening .....

    PLease tell me se i am in India and this WGR614 gives me an option only for Asia.So i had to choose that ......but how to know the channel ?
    Cos i have seen wireless routers at my firends place which work on US as the location and 11 as the channel ........
    What difference does both make?

    Actually, if you are able to get a good signal, then channel is not very important. Here is verbatim from the page: 10 tips for improving your wireless network

    Wireless routers can broadcast on several different channels, similar to the way radio stations use different channels. In the United States and Canada, these channels are 1, 6, and 11. Just like you'll sometimes hear interference on one radio station while another is perfectly clear, sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. Try changing your wireless router's channel through your router's configuration page to see if your signal strength improves.

    I am actually stumped at your problem. The only thing I can think of is that you UT-300R2U modem/router is not accepting dialing commands because it is already busy. I know that a guy in my neighbourhood uses Netgear wireless (SSID = NETGEAR). I don't know him but his SSID is visible to me, has no security and I could even login to his modem. Although the signal is weak to my home, I could neverthess surf.

    Default Issue Resolved.

    Hi,
    I could reslove the issue that i was facing regarding configuring the UT300R2U in Bridge mode and the wireless router in PPPoE mode.
    Actually i was getting the ping after i configured it by the procedures suggested in the previous comments in this thread.
    Thanks to all who helped.
    The problem was with the MTU value configured in my netgear router....
    It was set to 1500 so i brought it down to 1400 randomly ...but if u want to configure it to exact u can try setting it to 1492 cos 8 bytes are consumed by PPPoE protocol.
    For more information check this site.....

    MTU, Partial Loss of Internet Connection, and Performance

    Or even a search on microsoft site will do u the needy.
    Thanks everyone.

    Default Help required for MT841 with WGR614

    Hi Friends,

    I'm new to this forum.

    I'm having Huawei SmartAX MT841 Adsl modem+router (provided by BSNL). I bought Netgear WGR 614 (Wireless G 54) Wireless Router.

    I use Ethernet for connecting modem to my computer. I have to use dialer (give username and password) for connecting to Internet.

    How can i configure my router (WGR614), so that i can remotely dial to connect? Here my problem is i'm having one desktop & 2 laptops.

    Will i be able to use all the 3 (desktop & laptop) simultaneously-using dial-up?

    If i had to configure my ADSL modem to be always on, what is the procedure?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Hi Sriram, Your SmartAX MT841 is already configured in bridged mode (because you are dialing in to connect to internet). You must configure the Netgear router in PPPoE mode as per this guide: http://www.indiabroadband.net/bsnl-b...-wgr614v7.html.

    After you configure Netgear in PPPoE mode, you must connect to internet via Netgear router only and you must not dial thru the SmartAX modem/router.

    Your Netgear modem will now be in always-on mode and you just connect to the Netgear router (wired or wireless) and you will be on internet.

    no, if you use bridged mode then if you dial from one laptop then only that laptop can use the internet.. when you have multiple pcs its better you use ppoe mode
