    Default Connecting Tikona from WiFi mobile

    Hi,

    I have MTNL Triband and planning to switch to Tikona 150 KBPS unlimited plan. I have a WiFi enabled cell, i asked their demo ppl if i could connect my cell as well. Looks like they didn't have much idea on it. They mentioned that there is a dialler software that needs to be installed to which we connect, but there is a web login as well. If there is a weblogin i would think that connecting thru mobile should be possible, but don't know for sure. I don't think they have a dialler software for cell.

    Has anyone tried connecting WiFi enabled cell with Tikona? If yes, pl let me know how.

    TIA.

    If you don't have a problem with Triband then I suggest you stick with it and attach a wifi router to modem if required. Moreover unlimited plans from MTNL are pretty competitive today (MTNL have launched some new unlimited plans this december).

    Web based dialers many a times have issues while using multiple PCs on same connection and compatibility issue sometimes. I have had some difficult experience with web based dialer in the past when I used cable internet.

    Web based dialer for mobile (I guess you mean windows mobile), well that would most likely will not be available soon.

    I too was considering Tikona but found my existing Triband with wifi router is a better no-nonsense fit.

    Hope this helps.

    Clarification: I experienced Tikona in action at a friends place, he is using Windows Vista on laptop. He keeps tweaking the placement of the Ruckus Box to get a better signal, otherwise no problem with software on his PC. Plan subscribed FUL599 @ Bhandup. He was told by the sales rep that multiple PCs can be used after informing the call center so that the ID is configured for additional MAC addresses.

    Tikona does not support wi-fi phone's but there's a work around:
    Connect the router provided by tikona to you computer/laptop using the cat5 cable.
    Now, create an ad-hoc wireless connection on the pc/laptop, this will enable you to start your wi-fi phone.
    The only catch here is that your pc/laptop has to be turned on all the time.

    @aasheeshl
    Great!

    1. Hope , just setting up wifi connection in laptop
    will give WIFI connectivity to Your Phone.
    I think, you have to enable WIFI mode in the modem/router ( Rufus) also.
    Please correct me.
    Tikona==>Rj45==>Laptop on Lan mode.
    ( wireless signals will be picked up by Phone ?
    or any other laptop also? )
    2.
    If you can access the modem/router settings
    of TIKONA ( Rufus Mt2211?) and make the changes suggested by you, and post it here.
    You will get 13 reputation points from me !
    IP address to access modem say 192.xx.xx.xx
    User ID
    Password.
    Step by step instructions for wifi mode. etc.
    3..
    I use Airtel/BSNL BB service at 2 Mbps speed .
    UPDATE:
    Tikona does not support wi-fi phone's but there's a work around
    Please check their FAQ page.WIFI mode available..
    http://tikona.in/faq.html#
    Also send email to their Nodal officer.
