    Default Configure Utstarcom WA3002G4 modem for beam telecom

    Salam/ Greetings of the day!!

    Dear All:

    I had a BSNL modem ( typeII) but now I have switched to Beam telecom.

    My beam telecom internet allows me to access their connection only when I enter my user name and pw upon landing on their portal page ( I don't know what type of ISP/ connection would you call that) - either broadband/ dial-up or what, please tell me that.

    Please tell me how to configure my modem so that I create a wifi connection and use internet over my laptop.

    Also, I want to know if it is possible to use that some wifi connection for more devices including my laptop @ the same time. Thanks.

    Beam telecom is a cable connection is it not?

    If it is a cable connection and not an adsl connection then you cannot use that adsl modem with it. You would need a wifi router to create a wifi network and be able to use multiple computers.

    As you said Beam telecom required you to login using a browser, You would need to set up our computer to acquire IP and DNS automatically and whatever settings you got from Beam would go into the wifi router. You would still get a login page on anything you connect but once you connect one machine by entering user name and pass then all the other machines connected to the wifi network would have internet access and wont have to login individually.

    This is what I understand and I might be wrong. Some one please correct me if I am wrong

    Default I did connect it previously.............

    Salam!!

    Brother:

    I did connect it previously and it did work.

    I was able to use my laptop individually with the beam login.

    At least if you show me that way, I can do it in sha allah.

    I have fading memories of using MAC E R for this connection.

    Could you please confirm that Beam telecom is a cable connection that gives you a RJ45 cable and not a telephone cable? I may be misunderstanding the whole thing. To use the modem you have you would need an adsl connection which I believe Beam telecom is not.

    Brother:

    The connection which I use comes with one RJ45 CABLE and not with a telephone cable. I just plug that cable directly into my laptop and then I get a LAN connection access.

    After this, I am redirected to www.portal.beamtele.com and then I have to enter the user name and pw to start browsing.

    With my UTSTARCOM WA3002g4 modem, I have another cable ( probably called ethernet cable), which can be facilitated to connect the modem with the laptop.

    My modem also have wifi capablities, which enable me to log in directly into the 192.168.1.1, once I switch on the router and connect to it through the wireless means.

    I hope I haven't confused you or me

    So thanks a lot and whether we solve this issue or no, I really appreciate your forum and its team in helping people for the sheer joy of sharing- knowledge in this case.

    Masha Allah!! Tabarak AllaH!!

    I dont know a way to use this modem as a router for a cable connection. I am sure there must be a way and some techies may be using it as a router or switch somewhere as I type this but to be honest its just not worth the effort and time.
    A new router would cost you some Rs800-900 may be even less. If you do find a way to use this modem as router then please do not forget to update this thread so anyone looking for this solution could use that info.
