    Thumbs up TATA WIMAX BB FEEDBACK and Request for router configuration password !

    Hello All,

    I am using TATA WM BB (256Kbps unlimited postpaid) for last one week in bangalore. I did bit of searching before choosing my ISP. Most of the forums suggested me not to get TATA. But, only very few posts supported to buy. Later I found that, it is the case with all other ISPs. So, I registered for TATA and got connection in 3 days although they said about 15 days. So, far the connection is good with out any server down. Regarding the download speed, sometimes I used to get >30 KB. I think it all depends on your signal strength and signal strength is around 23.

    I would like to request the existing TATA postpaid subscribers to provide me the default user name and password for router configuration web interface. Please let me know if you know the details. I tried with admin but no use.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Bala

    Usually it is admin/admin for most routers. But WiMax routers may be different. What router do you have?

    hello,

    How can I manage the StarMAX 2150 subscribers station? Do we have a telnet login or any management (either GUI app or HTML based GUI) software to login to the subscribers station and test the performance and signal strengh?

    Default Tata Wimax Beware

    VSNL may be the first to test wimax but my experience has been very bad ,

    The starmax device used for this service has gone through many bugs in its software. They claim the latest release a M version is a stable one , I dont think so .

    When the Signal is good its speed as good as wireline .

    VSNL / TATA call centre and complaint mgmt process is pathetic , you have wait for 16 mins to talk to agent

    The field team is not capable to troubleshoot the issues effectively

    I have tried using it for past one month , it worked well for 1 day till now , the field team has come to my place 3 times , no resolution yet ,

    In all if you want to try Wimax from VSNl , take a chance on your luck & fate is in God's Hands!!

    Take a postpaid connection , they dont attend well to prepaid customers

    They dont provide a recipet for connection payment unless you demand , so I doubt they are doing some fishy bussiness . I have not got one yet , The sales person doesnot attend your call after he takes the sale from you,

    ALL Together VSNL / TATA Wimax is not yet a stable matured service in market , Ask them a wireline solution & if you are in Banglore there is no option for it , so better solution is a Airtel Broadband ,

    hi usually the Starmax SS has a mgmt Ip

    Put 192.168.1.10/24 on you PC ethernrt

    telnet 192.168.1.1

    there are many usernames admin/admin support/support

    But the one u can use to configure is root/telsimawl . You can try to add BS etc

    some commands

    configure bs add <freq> <bw> <bsnmae>
    ex : configure bs add 3316000 3000 bs1

    sh bs - for showing bs status

    The values should be be around -23 and 44 with qam16 modulation

    sh ip wimax - to see if the ss is recieving DHCP mgmt IP

    sh conf -

    copy run start

    reboot

    Thats much I know , Dont try to tweak much as the SS box is a piece of scrap and there is no point playing with it . Just dump Tata connection and look for a wired connection for now , Thats the best that ISPs in India are used to and can troubleshoot rather than with a suckign WIMAX moot !!

    Thanks for reply.
    I am now trying to configure the router to enable DHCP to share the internet connection.
    Need to check whether the router is capable of running dhcp.
    I request all of you to share your experiences.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Default WiMax + Wireless Router Configuration

    This is only a basic Setup. You can change the values according to your wish and for more security. I have Initially tried with a Dlink router and it worked fine...The configuration is simple and straight forward in Dlink Router but I preffered a Cisco Router and purchased a LinkSys WRH54G model.

    Follow the instructions from the router manual to change the Router Settings. Connect the cable from the PoE box "Data IN" port to the routers "Internet" port (Blue Port). Connect the LAN cable from the Ethernet Port (marked 1 - 4) behind the Router to your PCs network Card (RJ45 Interface). Once your Wireless link is UP you can remove this cable. Change the computer IP to 192.168.1.20 with default subnet mask. Open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 (this is the default IP address of Linksys router)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Click WAN icon
    Enter the username and Password (refer the manual for Username & password)

    Select "Setup" from top Left corner

    Enter the Values given by the service provider for the "Basic Setup"

    INTERNET SETUP (e.g.)
    Internet Connection Type : Select "Static IP from the drop down list"
    Internet IP Address: 121.243.x.x (your Static IP provided by VSNL)
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.x
    Gateway: 121.243.x.x
    Static DNS 1: input the first DNS IP address provided bythe service provider
    Static DNS 2: input the Second DNS IP address provided by the service provider


    Optional Settings
    Leave this field as it is


    NETWORK SETUP
    Router IP
    Local IP Address : 192.168.1.10
    Note: remember this IP address. Next time you have to type http://192.168.1.10 to access the router configuration page.
    Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0

    Server Settings (DHCP)
    DHCP Server : Select "Enable"
    Starting IP Address : 192.168.1.100 (Select Default Value - Avoid starting from 192.168.1.1)
    MAC Binding : Dont change anything here.
    Maximum Number of DHCP users: 50
    Client Lease Time : 0
    Default gateway : 0.0.0.0
    WINS : 0.0.0.0

    Time Settings
    Don’t change the default settings

    Don’t change the default values of "DDNS", "MAC Address Clone", "Advance Routing" and "WAN Port Configure" unless your are familiar with these settings.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From the Top Select "Wireless"
    Basic Settings
    Wireless network Mode : Mixed
    Wireless Network Name (SSID) : MyNetwork
    Wireless Channel : 6 - 2.437GHz
    Wireless RF Control : Standard
    Wireless SSID Broadcast : Enable
    Wireless RF Scheduling : Disable
    Wireless Security
    Security Mode : WEP
    Default Transmit key:1
    WEP Encryption : 64 bits 10hex digits
    Pass phrase : leave Blank and input a valid Hex key in the key 1: field
    key 1: abcdef1234 ( Dont put this value - Jumble the characters and remember this value)

    Leave MAC Filtering and Advance Settings

    -----------------------------------------------

    Leave "Security", "Access Restrictions” and "Applications and Gaming" with the default values.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Click on Administration from the "Management Option" and change the Router Password . Enable Wireless Web management Access and disable Remote management. Leave all other settings with their default Values.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Click on “Save Settings” at the bottom. This will save the configuration and will reinitialize the router. You will loose the connection to the router at this time. Take the TCP/IP properties of your computer and change the settings to “Obtain an IP address automatically” and “Obtain DNS address automatically”. Reboot the Computer and verify the computer has obtained an IP from the router DHCP Lease.Type “ipconfig /all’ at command prompt to check this. To access the Router configuration page again type http://192.168.1.10
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If your PC/Laptop is not configured for a wireless connection, install the appropriate driver and enable the connection or take the help from the vendor. At this time you can remove the Input the key which you have entered in the router configuration page (Under Wireless security - key 1: ). To configure the Starmax box, refer to some other links given elsewhere in this thread. If you experience any problem, Switch off PoE, Router and computer. Reboot PoE first, Router second and computer third

    This is a 256kbps plan and on an average I am getting 230kbps. It all depends on the signal strength and quality of the signal at your place.

    Hi Ganesh,

    Sorry, I just saw your reply.

    I dont have any contact details, you can get one from the tata indicom site.

    price: I paid around 4.5K as advance payment for 4 months and got free 3 months offer. IIRC the monthly amount is 1000 + tax.

    now that 3 months free offer is not there any more
    you pay 4 months advance and the installation change is waved off

    Hi,

    I need to setup the PPPOE mode and connect my wireless router to the modem. I too am not able to connect to the starmax modem. Telnet says "could not open connection on the port 23". I ran a port scanner on the box which found that both port 23 (telnet) and SSH are blocked. How to login to the modem now?

    Please help ASAP.

    Thanx !!!

    To login to configure the Telsima antenna do the following;-

    1. set pc ip to 192.168.1.10 (anything but 192.168.1.1)
    2. Open a browser type http:\\192.168.1.1
    3. ID root and pwd is telsimawl

    Let me know if it works.. It does for me .. I Got a Telsima 2105 antenna and a Power-Dsine POE box... POE and PPPOE are 2 different things so pls confirm.

    Cheers
    Nik

    Thank you for giving such a detailed explaination...... I could complete all steps of Router Configuration as you mentioned...... My connection is a Reliance's WiMAX with a PoE box...... So your description exactly matches my case.......

    Now after having configured the Router, my Laptop gets an IP 192.168.1.100...... Is this IP ok??? and if it is, then still my Internet is not working...... The WAN icon in the Router Setup page shows my ISP's IP...... (123.xxx.yyy.zzz)..... So is it ok for my Laptop to have a different IP like 192.168.1.100....... (I understand that the Network Address Translation servers should do the job of Local and Global IP mapping/translation, is that right...??).... But finally the internet is not working..... Where could the problem be...??

    Plus, my laptop has a Intel Pro(R)/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection hardware...... There's a big Red cross on that icon..... Seemingly to suggest that there's no wireless connectivity present..... Do I have to configure anything for this hardware item to detect & establish Wireless network connectivity....?? When I check its properties, it shows that this hardware is running ok...... Currently, I have only my laptop getting connected to the router...... I did all the configurations with the RJ45 Cat 5 cable connected between the Router and my laptop....... When should one remove that cable and go wireless.....??? How should I find out whether the Router is transmitting wireless....??

    I have a Telenet FSL8313 Wimax Modem in delhi and i access the modem page by entering
    192.168.0.1 or 168.254.1.1 and username and password are admin/admin.

    The speed is good and about signal strength is 23 and anything above 21 is good

    Default Hi here is the answer

    If you want the admin privileges of the ss do not use admin/admin as user name and password instead use the following credentials

    User Name:root
    Password:telsimawl

    With above credentials you will get the RWX permissions

    Hi,

    TATA Wimax are using two types of modem one is from Telsima/Starmax whoes IP is 192.168.1.1 & username password is root/telsimawl.
    Other modem they use is from USI whoes IP is 169.254.1.1 & username password for same is admin/admin. to connect telsima modem u need to configure lan ip as 192.168.0.10 (Otherthan 192.168.1.1) & for USI lan ip may be 169.254.1.10 (again other than 169.254.1.1).

    Please do not change anything as both the modems configuration are not user friendly as ADSL/Wifi Modem. U can not configure DHCP/auto login unless & untill TATA people configure from their server side.

    Enjoy,
    Pratik
