    Default Reliance Broadband Web login

    Hi all,

    This is my first post to these forums.

    I have 2 broadband connections in Pune currently, one from Tata Indicom Broadband, and another from Reliance Broadnet. I have a 256 kbps unlimited connection from Tata Indicom (its really a strech of imagination calling 256 kbps broadband, but beggars can't really be choosers). From Reliance I have a 2mbps connection that is limited to 1GB of data transfer.

    I use a Xincom 502 dual WAN router to hook up to both my broadband accounts, and this in turn feeds into a Netgear wireless router. On my network I have a number of computers (Macs and PCs) and standalone IP devices (for audio, video, voice, etc).

    The router is designed to provide load balancing, QoS as well as automatic failover redudancy in case one broadband connection should go down (which happens far more frequently than I like).

    I have setup the Tata Indicom connection to be my primary connection, with the Reliance one kicking in only if I need the additional bandwidth or if the Tata one dies. In general this setup works pretty well ... the one major drawback is the pesky login that the reliance network needs. If I am at home using a computer it is a relatively simple matter to click on the login button. However if its only the non-computer IP devices that are running, or if I am accessing my network from outside, it becomes rather inconvenient.

    My questions are:

    1) Is it possible to circumvent this need to login? Is it possible to get into the administration page of the Reliance UTStarcom UT-300R2 ADSL Modem?

    2) If it isn't possible to circumvent this login, how long does the login on the Reliance connection hold if no packets are being sent through? Can it be left always on?

    2) If this is not possible, are there any other broadband providers that can provide similar throughput without need for a web login? (PPPoE authentication is fine - my router can do that automagically)

    Thanks in advance!

    Cool Login Page Bypass

    have the reliance broadnet in 3 different location for work and home.

    And successfully installed the Linksys WRTGL wireless router and a home grown linux based router.

    In all cases the WAN (internet) connection is DHCP. On powerup the router acquires the external IP address and DNS information using DHCP. The lan side is using NAT where the subnet is 192.168.1.0. As long this is setup correctly all the computers on lan should theoretically be able to connect to internet.

    Reliance connection scheme.
    DSL-- > [Modem]< -- DHCP --> [Router] < -- NAT/DHCP --> [Workstations]

    Now there is just one more step to connect workstations to the internet. The reliance broadnet connection page. The first workstation wil see this page and has to login. Other workstations wont have to repeat this. It's pretty annoying as the connection times out in 15 minutes. The fucker who thought of this is pure idiot. We have a static ip and need to provide incoming access and the stupid network is timed out.

    It is a non standard way of authenticating, no router in the world supports it. The standard ways are PPPoE, PPTP, LT2P, Radius etc. After some digging around I found that the login page is posting "username" and "password" to this url
    http://www.reliancebroadband.co.in/user/refresh/home.

    So to make a workaround I wrote a script that makes this submit with the reliance username and password. And run it as a cron job every 10 minutes on one of the servers. Now the session never times out and no one has to see the dumb login screen. Of course I use linux machines so it's very easy to do it. If someone is interested I can share the script.

    Peace

    Its not possible to circumvent the need to login. You can get into the admin page of the ADSL modem though. Reliance customer care dont even know that there is a login page for their router :-)
    Heres how - Remove the internet cable from the modem. Switch on the modem and wait for it to boot completely. Then connect your laptop/PC to the modem. Go to the browser and give the URL - http://192.168.0.1. The I think the username is admin or administrator with the same password. Check that in the modem user guide.
    Though I wonder what settings can be changed there.

    2) If it isn't possible to circumvent this login, how long does the login on the Reliance connection hold if no packets are being sent through? Can it be left always on?

    There is some default time out period.....I have seen different people report different time limits from 15 mins to 24 hours ! So cannot say. I think it is 2 hours but not sure.

    Hope this helps.

    cheers.

    Yes it not possible to circumvent the login page, yet !! However you can let a script keep logging you in every few minutes, so the connection is always active.

    BSNL does PPPoE

    Interesting ... I will give this a shot when I have a bit of down time. I will report back if it is possible to modify anything here.

    I wonder if I can construct a POST (or GET) request using the URL you have provided (along with my username and password), and have that submitted at a predefined interval by my router's HTTP alive indicator (via its connection health check feature). I will try this when I get a chance.

    Hi WTF,
    with reference to the above article you have posted, I would be interested in knowing the script you have made to stay logged on to reliance and not let the connection time out. Also I would like to know, would I need to log on once initially, or do I not need to see that login screen ever again?

    Awaiting your kind response.
    Thank you.
    Shiva Saigal

    Please reply to my email if that is the most convenient for you. grenades911@gmail.com

    Default Script Login

    This command will log you in

    curl -F username=myloginname -F password=mypassword \
    http://www.reliancebroadband.co.in/user/refresh/home

    you can put this in a cron job that runs every 10 minutes. If you are not comfortable cron jobs, then use a loop in a script with sleep.

    I think curl is also available for windows.

    Hi wastred,

    can you post the solution you found?

    Is there another option for automatic login, for example using nc instead of curl?
    Reason for the question: my router (AVM Fritz Box) has nc installed, but not curl.

    Thanks and Regards, Markus
