    Question How to make Wi-Fi connection with D-Link DSL-2640S Router on MTNL broadband

    Hello Guys,

    I am new to this forum.

    I currently have a MTNL broadband connection with wired router GLB-502T ADSL2+ Router. Now I bought,
    D-Link DSL-2640S Router and tried to make a wireless connection with this router. However, the "" @ "" symbol light on the router is amber colour (not green) due to which there is no wireless internet connection.

    Can any1 please help me with guidelines or steps what I need to do to make this router work on my MTNL connection as a Wi-Fi connection.

    All help is much appreciated. Thank You.

    Kind Regards

    Rohan.

    Keep Dlink GLB-502T as standby.

    You can use Dlink 2640U unit directly as an adsl modem +wifi router.
    Confirm internet connected in Ethernet mode Rj45 cable connection.

    Confirm SSID as entered in router appears in Network WLAN window.

    Not connected; (PPP down )

    Did you enter VPI/VCI 0 and 32 for mtnl.? Select PPPoE.
    First try LAN mode ( ethernet rj45 connection.
    see thumbnails in reverse order.
    Can you attach as screen shot the connection status ?

    Sorry to reply soo late Essbebe, I did not have internet connection at all for couple of days, as my normal ADSL router got bust and I tried all d options provided by you. However, there was no edit option on the set up page of the router as it is locked by the SKY provider from whom I had the router.

    Newaz, now I got a new D Link 2750-U n 300 router and started my Wi-Fi connection.

    Thanks for your help !!

    Regards

    Rohan.

    Even with the locked up moderm in"Bridged"mode
    you could try in wifi router
    :Select Dynamic IP ( or even auto dhcp)
    enable DHCP give a range.
    rest as usual.
    Only problem you have to first log in with Sky modem.

    For cable Isp's giving just a RJ45 cable we connect wifi router in this mode, and log in.
    usually to WAN port. if not available LAN1 .

    I remember A set up like above discussed By @just4Kix in one of his guides.
    ( broadband How to .... "sticky" post on top ).
    All above just for information.

    Presume Sky modem is beyond repair.or wifi router 2640S ?
    Thanks for the update.

    Hi,

    Any solution to this? I have got the same D'Link DSL-2640S router from UK which is locked to SKY and am not able to configure my Airtel broadband with it. Can't find the setting for VCI/VCP. Is there any solution for this? Or is there a link to upgrade the router firmware with an unlocked one?

    Thanks
