    Question Tata Broadband & DSL-2640T Router Problem

    Hi All,

    I have wired tata broadband connection with me.
    They have provided me a DSL Broadcom Modem.

    Since, i wanted a wireless DSL modem, i purchased a DLink DSL-2640T Router..
    Now, the big problem is, this router does not have a PPPOE Service Name Field available in the configuration.
    Screenshot: img580.imageshack.us/img580/7964/dsl2604t.png

    The Tata Engg are saying PPPOE Service Name is compulsory else your login will keep failing :-(

    Any workarounds for this?
    Any suggested firmware upgrades?

    My current firmware is: V3.02B01T01.ME-A.20070521

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Regards,
    Zooom..!!

    The DSL-2640-T 3in 1 adslmodem/lanports/wifi router.
    Task is to connect to tatata Indicom BB connection.
    1. Use dialer mode
    or
    2.
    PPP/PPPoE mode.
    3.
    You have to create a "dialer " in Windows.
    4.
    Confirm model number of adsl modem supplied by
    TataIndicom. or post as Annexure Device info page.
    5.
    Feedback:
    Copy/Paste ipconfig /all
    when connected with Tata supplied modem.

    My requirement is to connect singly through the ADSL Wifi Router instead of using Tata Supplied Router with a separate Wifi Router...

    1) Use dialer mode -? I didnt understand
    2) PPP/PPPoE Mode - Not connecting as no PPPOE Service Name option available to be passed while connecting
    3)I do not want to create a dialer in windows as i have multiple devices which will connect over Wifi... My 4laptops, Cell Phones, PSP
    4) Tata ADSL Modem/Router Manufacturer: Broadcom

    1.
    Keep Tata Broadcom model settings as standby.
    same as in link wa 3002_g4 below.or beetel 220BxI.
    Save/Backup present settings.
    2.
    . Dialer mode was suggested, to check whether other settings are correct. and you get connected. "Bridged" in WAN page.
    External dialer to get connected.
    Reset dsl2640T to factory settings and try.
    3.
    You may have to post as annexure ALL screen shots if you
    cannot connect in PPP/PPPoE mode.
    4.
    See the screen shot of U.k ISP. no need to enter isp name.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your vital tip to set it up in Bridge Mode to verify the router settings.
    After doing that and multiple rounds of testings, i found the correct set of settings for Tata Broadband.
    This indeed does not require the service name 'tata' to be passed along with the PPPoE Login Details.

    In order to help everyone struggling with this, i have wrote a comprehensive article on my blog which everyone can refer.

    1.
    vpi/vci for bsnl 0 and 35 dns use 8.8.8.8 and 208.67.220.220
    2.
    If you cannot access the modem ask Tata indicom for password
    .( or reset the modem to factory settings and try default ID and PW )

    3.
