    Lightbulb Setting Up LAN (using wired and WiFi) under BSNL broadband

    Dear Friends,

    I am back again...

    Anyway, recently I have set up a home LAN using WiFi Router. Previously, I was using wired LAN (those craps, connected with ethernet cables, etc....).

    I faced several difficulties to configure the LAN in WiFi mode but finally, by God's grace after facing hardships, I came out with one of the easiest way to configuration. I thought to share with you, the PDF files, which I have prepared.

    My hardware configuration:
    • D-Link ADSL 2+ Modem & Router (model no. GLB-502T)
    • LinkSys Wireless-G Router (model no. WRT54G firmware v7.0.0)
    • A desktop (Windows XP Pro with service pack 3)
    • A Wi-Fi enabled laptop (Windows Vista Business with service pack 1)


    Kindly revert me back with your comments/suggestions/feedback regarding the manual. I seldom visit this forum. But when I am technically screwed up, I know India Broadband forum is there to help me out... Long live the forum...

    I can be contacted at drsougata.banerjee@gmail.com

    your guide will be useful to vista users as most of the laptops now-a-days comes with vista pre-installed.
    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?

    Dear "whitestar", thanks for the feedback. But in my guide, I have used machine from both the platform Windows XP Pro (sp3) as well as Windows Vista (business).

    I hope the guide will serve the purpose for the users of both the OS.

    I request to go through the PDFs before commenting. Thanks dear.... take care...

    you already said it in your 1st post & anyway most people have difficulty connecting XP & VISTA running computers.if both are running XP/VISTA then there is almost no problem.btw you used dns servers as 4.x.x.x(universal dns) are they more reliable/fast than open dns servers?

    Boss,

    This DNS server I was using without any glitch for these many days, as long as I was using wired LAN. But as of now, as long as I have been using WiFi, things are assigned automatically, whether it is the IP address or the DNS server address.

    And as an answer to your curiosity, none of my machines are dual booting.... (Let me tell u that I am now experimenting configuring LAN under UBUNTU and FEDORA, but with no luck, mainly due to the hardware drivers non-availability)
