    Lightbulb Reliance Wired Broadband - Wifi with ADSL modem+router guide

    Hi,

    It looks like there is lot of inaccurate information on connecting Reliance Wired Broadband connection for Wifi. It is possible to do this and here is a quick guide on doing it using an ADSL modem+router (BSNL's DNA-A211-I is illustrated, you will need to adapt if your router is a different make). This should help you to connect multiple wired and wifi devices at the same time via the router. Note that if you want to use a wired modem + a broadband router, this procedure does not hold good. The assumption is that your broadband input comes in a cable similar to a telephone cable.

    Step 1: Physical Connections
    Remove the non-wifi router Reliance supplies. Replace it with an ADSL router+modem such as BSNL's DNA-A211-I. The cable coming from the Reliance splitter should go into the slot named 'DSL' and a LAN cable should be connected from any of the 'Ethernet' slots on one end and to the PC's LAN slot on the other end.



    Step 2: Computer LAN settings
    Right click on the network properties icon in system tray (in windows) - it should normally read Local Area Connection.



    Click Properties - Internet Protocol and set up the values similar to this. Click ok and repair connection by right clicking on the system tray icon and choosing 'Repair' to be on the safe side.

    Step 3: Set up the router
    Open the browser and type 192.168.1.1 and enter with user id 'admin' and password 'admin' or 'password'. It should open the router settings page. If it does not, the router password or settings may have been changed before. You can reset the router by pressing and holding the reset button with a pin for a few seconds. Some routers also have different user id and password - consult the router documentation or website.

    In the set up screens, go to WAN - Add - and set up vpi/vci as 0/35 as below.



    In the next screen, choose 'Connection Type' as 'MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER)' (it is called 'Dynamic Mode' in some routers). Leave other values as is.



    In the next 'WAN IP' screen, set the following selections: Obtain an IP address automatically, Obtain default gateway automatically, Obtain DNS server addresses automatically.



    In the next 'Network Address Translation Settings' screen, check the options Enable NAT, Enable Firewall, Enable WAN Service. Save settings.




    Then go to 'LAN' in the router menu and set to 'Standard mode' and 'Disable DHCP'. It is also possible to have DHCP enabled so that each device you have is assigned an IP automatically, but I prefer to set up each device manually with an IP. This is particularly handy if you use torrents and need to forward traffic to a particular machine.





    Go to the 'Routing' menu and check 'Enable Automatic Assigned Default Gateway'.



    Go to Wireless - Basic page and 'Enable Wireless' if it is not already and put in a name for the wireless connection.




    Save and reboot and you should be able to connect from your device.
    You will need to repeat the network properties setting with a different last digit (we used 2 above, so go for 3, 4 etc.) for each device for the device to be able to connect. You will need to key in your reliance broadband login and password on the first device you connect - it can be a pc or even a mobile phone. That means you can put the router on and connect from your mobile without needing to put the pc on. On a computer login can be automated using a curl script etc. too.


    Once you are able to connect your devices, the following security is highly recommended. Login to the router again and go to Wireless - Security screen and set authentication and shared keys, that you will need to use from your device to connect. Typical settings are as in the screen below but you might need to adjust based on what your devices support.
    You can also hide the access point if your devices are all connected properly. MAC based filtering of devices can also be set, but I won't detail that here.




    Cheers!

    A quick clarification.

    The above setup is with an ADSL modem+router. I.e., it is one single box that does both the functions of a modem and router, that replaces the non-wifi router Reliance supplies.

    It is also possible to set up wifi over Reliance wired broadband using a broadband router. In this case, you will retain the non-wifi modem/router Reliance provides and additionally connect a broadband router. I.e., two separate boxes for modem and router functions. I have used this setup before and it works equally well; however I don't have a broadband router with me right now to post a guide for this setup. Just note the input for the box would be different in each case - an ADSL modem+router's input looks like a telephone cable, while a broadband router takes a LAN type cable for input.

    Thanks guys for the reps.

    Cheers.

    Default Not able to access from multiple systems

    Hi,
    I followed your instructions, however I can access the net from only one computer. When I try to access it from another computer/mobile, I am getting the reliance login page. But can't login as I am already logged in.

    That indicates you are not on MER/dynamic mode. Your computer than the router is getting the Reliance IP.

    When you are connected to internet from one system, can you check and post what is the IP you have on the computer and on the router? Your router should have the 123.xxx.xxx.xxx and the PC should have 192.168.1.x if you followed the above procedure correctly. Also check the network properties for all the other PCs/mobile to make sure they all have 192.168.1.x IPs.

    The objective is for the router to get the Reliance IP and all PCs/mobiles to share the connection.

    got the idea. however Unless I keep the settings under obtain IP address automatically, I am not able to get to the reliance login page. I have set the router ip as 192.168.1.2, but I cannot access the router, apparently I am getting connected to reliance. Let me try doing it all over again.

    Under WAN, the router should have 'obtain IP automatically'.
    Under LAN, the router should have IP 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0

    Are you sure you have the network properties correct in your PC? The gateway and DNS should refer to the router LAN IP, and the subnet should be 255.255.255.0.

    I checked everything. last time, i had default gateway as 192.168.1.2. changed that to 1.

    When I check my router WAN page. this is what I see.

    Ok, your router is not being assigned an IP address - you should see an IP address than the DHCP message. Maybe you are being affected by the issue that used to happen to me once in a while before - the pc gets an IP but router doesn't some times. I have written about this on my other review thread, and I am not aware of what can be done except wait for a few minutes, when it gets assigned. What city are you in?

    Just to be sure this is the issue and we are not missing something, can you post your router settings pages?

    Please mention the modem/router/model/make/number.
    seems to be 450BXI.

    2.
    Also post ipconfig /all
    when connected to Reliance in usual manner for analysis by @glass.
    Mention if different modem is used.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back. Was busy with work. I am currently using WA3002G4 ADSL router provided by BSNL. I think that might be the problem, because it does not have MAC cloning facility.

    Should I look at other routers?
    Any suggestion on router that would work out well for me?

    Was thinking about LINKSYS WRT160N and changing the firmware to DD-WRT.

    Do I really need an ADSL modem? Will I be able to change the firmware on LINKSYS WRT160N and still connect to reliance?

    Any ADSL router should work, and MAC cloning is not necessary unless the issue I mentioned about getting IP for the router exists.

    I think if you have a broadband wifi router, you can use it along with the modem/router Reliance has provided. I don't think firmware change are needed either.

    @suniljoseph
    Good work.
    Please confirm whether you could connect to Reliance in multiple systems. ( wifi etc )
    If not ( as earlier set up )
    in Tcp/Ip properties select Obtain Ip address automatically and also DNS.

    I am 99% sure you have not set all the network properties in the mobile similar to the PC. I know it is not easy to get to these properties in a Nokia, because I remember I had found them after quite some searching.

    Of course, I may be wrong.

    I am using Google Nexus One.

    But when I configure my network manually, I am not able to connect to reliance at all, not even from my computer. The WAN status shows obtaining DHCP address.

    To isolate the issue, can you try connecting a second PC and see if that works? If two PCs can share the connection, that certainly would mean it is the mobile settings which will need work.
    I guess you should try that after a fresh start, since the DHCP error as I understand takes a good amount time to go away once it sets in.

    Please confirm whether you get Reliance web page to "log in "
    If you enter again id and PW what is the result ?
    2.
    ipconfig /all
    Please copy/paste data here.

    The issue is clear - the router does not get an IP but a PC does. Not much that can be done since it is a Reliance issue, except trying a different router to see if it works.

    My 2 cents.

    I see some guys selling the bsnl/mtnl router on ebay at 1100 (it looks like semindia make):

    eBay India: BRAND NEW MTNL DNA-A213 ADSL WIFI MODEM ROUTER iCOD (item 320610742759 end time 29-Nov-2010 22:05:42 IST)

    In the market, I think you will need to shell out a little more for any other brand. If you have some broadband subscriber of airtel buy you one, it should cost 1000. But before you buy, do test out with someone else's, to be sure you don't run into the problem that suniljoseph has.

    On my N97 mini, it is in settings - connectivity - Internet
    The phone should detect the wifi access point and then you need to change the settings depending on whether you use DHCP and security password for wifi connection. Once done with regular connection settings, you will also need to adjust the Advanced Settings - IPv4 for the network properties just like you would do on a PC.

    I see they are certainly more than 1100, so I don't know if you have a way to get them cheap. That said, I don't think these are adsl routers - you can connect them in conjunction with the router Reliance has provided - but it is not exactly the steps in this thread.

    If you already have a broadband router, then you should use it rather than buy an adsl router.

    I don't have the steps listed on this thread, but there should be a few threads on the forum on how to connect a broadband router that you will find with a search. The steps should be the same more or less.

    If you buy a three in one router and select "MER"
    you may connect in wifi , other devices. (price quoted Rs 1100/= Post no 32))

    Using Adsl modem(billion bipac 5200)+ wifi router ( minimum Rs 1000/=to 1600/=) also same result expected.

    Feedback please.

    I haven't been able to get my hand on a router yet.

    I am thinking about getting the following router.
    Belkin - F7D4301zb - Play Max Wireless Router
    Do you think i will be able to use it with my reliance connection?

    I prefer to buy a router without ADSL. Im planning to flash it with DD-WRT

    It is also possible to set up wifi over Reliance wired broadband using a broadband router. In this case, you will retain the non-wifi modem/router Reliance provides and additionally connect a broadband router. I.e., two separate boxes for modem and router functions. I have used this setup before and it works equally well; however I don't have a broadband router with me right now to post a guide for this setup. Just note the input for the box would be different in each case - an ADSL modem+router's input looks like a telephone cable, while a broadband router takes a LAN type cable for input.

    Thanks guys for the reps.

    Cheers.
    hello Glass,

    I am thinking about getting the following router.
    Belkin - F7D4301zb - Play Max Wireless Router
    Do you think i will be able to use it with my reliance connection?

    I prefer to buy a router without ADSL. Im planning to flash it with DD-WRT
    Sorry, I don't have experience with that.

    Well, the configuration is going to be quite different from what is on this thread. I don't have this setup handy to post details, but you should easily find a guide for that kind of setup on this forum and it should be no different from any other ISP as long as you have the dynamic IP/MER mode selected.

    I have some latest modem - Binatone 815.
    Can you post screen shot of the modem's device info ?
    may be similar to Beetel 220 BX.
    Also mention your wifi router's model/make/number.
    confirm you are not on "Bridged" Dialer mode. (userId/PW entered in computer window)

    I found out from a reliance guy that the prob is with the ADSL router. So I guess I will have to get a wireless router and connect it to the modem provided by reliance.

    If it is land line based Broadband connection , use VPI/VCi 0 and 35.
    Check my signature link/s in BSNL forum for screenshots etc .

    Exclamation Elephant is through, its the tail which is troubling me!

    After following detailed description ...I believe I am 99% there!
    I am using Beetel - 450BX1 ADSL 2+ Wireless Router.

    After rebooting, I am able to get the runtime 'Default Gateway', 'Primary DNS server' and 'Secondary DNS Server' in 'Summary' of my Modem's Device Info. as seen in pic attached.

    When tried accessing google.com, I got Reliance Login page. I logged in it.
    So far so good.

    Now the problem is:
    1) I am not able to connect other laptop in wireless mode.
    2) In my laptop, When I serch wireless networks around me, and in 'Select a Network to connect to' shows all other wireless routers around me except mine!
    It says - "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network"!!!

    I entered every single config carefully. Still..what is missing?

    Mention the model/make/number of reliance supplied modem ?
    Try in WAN page of Beetel450BX1 "BER" instead of 'Bridging' or PPPoE.
    Mention OS used: Windows 7/VIsta/XP Sp3

    Please give the correct model number of billion modem.

    Same device info as in post No1 with Beetel 450BXI ? when connected.

    Did you enable DHCP in either model ?

    Did you enable Wireless Box in beetel 450 BXI ?
    http://www.chennai.bsnl.co.in/BBS/WA...s/image024.jpg
    WA3002_g4 sig link : same for DNA A212 widfi model etc.

    If same BER option available in it, try that.
    Connect the rj45 to Lan 1 of Beetel Lan 2 to desktop
    Presume you are now using Beetel 450BXI, by connecting the RJ11
    cable.
    After making each change you should post the result also.
    Now I have to presume no wifi even when BER was selected in Beetel.

    Back of the Billion Modem says:
    Billion ADSL2+ Modem/ Router with Single Port
    Model: BIPAC 5200S
    -----
    The options my Beetel 450 BX1 supports are:
    PPPoA, PPPoE, MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER), IPoA and Bridging.
    -----
    If I understand it correct... by "Connect the rj45 to Lan 1 of Beetel Lan 2 to desktop", you mean I should 1st connect Reliance 1-port router...and its RJ45-out to Beetel's Lan-1?

    Exclamation

    Back again as I got my second laptop back to try configuring + connecting wirelessly.

    As you suggested, I tried following things to connect my both the laptops in wireless mode:
    1) Connected RJ-11 to Reliance 1-Port modem
    2) Connected RJ-45 from Reliance's only Port to LAN1 port of Beetel.
    3) Connected RJ-45 from LAN2 port of Beetel to My Laptop-1.
    4) On Laptop-1, changed the TCP/IP setting for LAN as shown in attached image.
    IP-Address: 192.168.1.2
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

    Preferred DNS server: 192.168.1.1
    Alternate DNS Server: 8.8.8.8
    -----------------------------
    With Laptop-1:
    A) I entered into modem page through 192.168.1.1
    B) In Modem's Device Info page, its showing correctly following things:
    Primary DNS Server: 192.168.1.1
    Secondary DNS Server: 192.168.1.1
    C) In Modem, I enabled 'Wireless' settings and provided 'Security keys'.
    D) Then I removed LAN cable from my laptop and tried 'wireless connection'. It got connected.
    E) Tried with google.com it diverted me to reliancebroadband.co.in.
    F) Provided UName + Pwd, and started surfing net properly.
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    That's the story till y'night. Now as I got my second laptop(Laptop-2) back, I tried following settings to connect it to Secured Wireless network.
    With Laptop-2:
    1) I was able to connect successfully to Wireless Network with Laptop-2.
    2) As I wasn't able to surf net, I opened 'Control Panel\Network Connections' and changed TCP/IP settings of 'Wireless Network connection' ditto as of wired LAN settings of Laptop-1 (as in attached image).
    3) With Laptop-2, TCP/IP property's IP-Address: 192.168.1.2 tried surfing... got an Error saying "IP Address conflict".
    4) Then I changed TCP/IP property of 'Wireless Network connection''IP-Address as: 192.168.1.3
    5) Now tried again. Though I didn't get any error message, but wasn't able to surf net on Laptop-2!!!

    Now what's next?

    <Essebebe> Many thanks for your quick responses and sorry for replying late as I got my 2nd laptop today only!

    Question Only 1-laptop can access Net at one time! :(

    Hi,

    Configuration:
    Beetel 450BX1 ADSL 2+ Router
    Billion - Reliance ADSL 1-Port Router
    2-laptops.

    Somehow managed to connect both my laptops. But the problem now is...
    1) With my 1st laptop, I logged in via reliancebroadband site page and can surf the net easily.

    2) Now with second laptop, though I am able to connect to router in wireless mode, when I try to surf net... it diverts to reliancebroadband site. When I provide the login credentials... it says - "Your connection was terminated abruptly. First terminate previous connection!"

    Bottomline is... at once, I can use only one laptop to surf net at given moment. To surf using another laptop... I have to 'log out' from the first one!!!

    F1...F1...F1!

    I have read that technically the incoming LAN cable can go into one of the four LAN ports of the ADSL modem/router, and the other three ports and wifi should be able to share the internet. However I have no idea if that works in practice.

    A regular broadband (non-ADSL) router should work out of the box, though.
