    Default Configure DataOne with Dlink DSL-2640T

    there everyone,
    I recently purchased the Dlink DSL-2640T ADSL 2 Modem, Wireless b/g Router. But unable to set it up on my computer. However, UT300R2U modem router works fine. Please help . I need to connect my laptop and mobile phone using wireless connectivity to net. Some of the posts listing automated connection of UT300R2U didn't help. Thanks

    first of all go to connection settings & see if any connection has VPI/VCI values 0 & 35 respectively.if not create one such connection.select connection type as pppoe,encapsulation--LLC,make this connection as default route.enter your bsnl username & password(without @bsnl.in i think) & enable DNS.set it to automatic but if you have to enter use these servers(open dns)---208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.also enable DHCP.first connect to bsnl & then you may want to ask about port forwarding.

    thanks whitestar-999. It worked like wonders. I believe that the DNS parameter was only missing link to the nirvana. Anyway my iPhone and laptop are able to connect through wi-fi. Thanks again. The port forwarding is still not required, so my requirements ends here.

    It is 1.1.3. No customised application. However, no security protocol has been setup in the wireless network.

    be careful about your wifi network if you are not using any security(WEP etc).keep an eye on your usage as someone else can connect to your wifi.its better if you turn it on.try it & if everything works fine then keep it on.if not then post whatever problems you faced.

    If its unlimited connection plan then as though the security will not mean anything for the usage.But security may help u to reduce threats to ur network.

    I purchased it at Nagpur, Silver Palace, Yashwant Stadium for Rs. 3800. The Modem is ADSL2+, Wireless router. In Mumbai, Lamington road, it can be had at Rs. 2900.

    once you set it to bridged mode, you need to create a dialer. hope this gives you an idea Prashanth Speaks-Technology and Life: How to Setup bridged mode in UT300R2U,WA3002G4

    i can not find info on this modem's settings page and i dont have this modem either.......
    it would be gr8 if u could upload screenshots of every settings page here.(or make a rar file with those pics, upload it at any filehosting site and give the link here)
    or u can wait 4 someone with knowledge of that modem too.

    D-Link TechSupport - Choose Your Country

    1.Take screen shots of present router settings and SAVE to your hard disk.
    ( In case you make some mistake/s in settings: for future use. )

    2. Open WAN page and uncheck pppOE/PPPoA etc and
    Select "BRIDGED"
    Apply SAVE reboot.

    3.Use a dialer to connect.

    4. Down load manuals QUG ( Quick User Guide) if Not available in CD.

    5. Post screen shot of setting pages, if still having problem.
    for comparison with other familiar Dlink routers

    but is the bridge mode possible in wireless? I have configured my desktop to use bridged with DSL 2640 T using dialer, but my laptop which uses wireless LAN cannot connect. although i can connect a lan with my desktop + DSL wireless modem + wireless lan enabled laptop i cannot enable the dialer in the LAPtop to recognise the internet connection. Is there anyway we can set username and password inside the dlink modem?

    Question

    I have the same wireless modem D-Link 2640-T and was hoping to set it up for accessing Wifi on my phone and laptop. I tried the above given Guide, but still couldn't manage to get it working. I just noticed that its 3 years old. Can someone please give me an updated guide? I would be grateful. Thanks in advance

    @prottotype
    Your PM ( private message)
    confirm you are not using "Dialer" mode.
    (userId/PW entered in window of computer )
    If so In WAN settings select PPPoA/PPPoE and edit
    enter/record userid/PW in routers wan page.
    http://www.indiabroadband.net/attach...-wan-pppoe.jpg
    2. In LAN settings Enable DHCP.
    Give a range say 192.168.1.3 to 192.168.1.15
    3. Wifi : try without security key.
    If MAC filtering option is available Disable.
    4. Also enable UpNp box if seen .
    Feedback.

    I do not use dialer mode. and no, I"m not able to access it via LAN either. With my current UT300R2U modem, it connect automatically the moment it's powered on. Regarding the other settings you've mentioned. I'll try it out now.

    And should I use the wizard to configure or enter the details manually?


    [Edit]
    Hey, never mind. The issue got resolved. Thx a lot for all the help Truly grateful
