    Default Unable to connect thru Netgear.

    So, Here is my Step-By-Step guide to configuring a Wi-Fi network with BSNL DataOne. NetGear comes with a wizard that never works with BSNL broadband connected via HUAWEI SmartAX 880. follow these steps.

    NetGear WGR614v5

    you have to configure the NetGear Router to talk to the modem.

    Keep your modem, wireless router and your username and password from BSNL handy before you proceed to the next step.

    If you want to change your existing configuration, take a backup of your configuration. This guide is to build your network from the ground-up.

    Configuring the Wireless Router and enabling the WPA security

    · Connect the network cable from the NetGear wireless router to the machine.

    · Open the IP Properties of your Network card and Enable DHCP. Select the following on the IP properites dialog.

    Obtain IP Address Automatically

    Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically

    · Open the browser and type

    · Enter ‘admin’ as username and ‘password’ as the password

    · Click on Wireless Settings link on the navigation pane and configure with the following values

    Wireless Network

    Name (SSID) - <YourSSID>

    Region – Asia

    Channel – 11

    Mode – g and b

    Security Options

    WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

    Security Encryption (WEP)

    Authentication Type – Automatic

    Encryption Strength – 64bit

    Security Encryption (WEP) Key

    Passphrase - <YourPassphrase>

    &#183; Click on Generate

    &#183; Record the value of Key1 – This is required when you log on to your Wi-Fi network the first time.

    &#183; Click on Apply and wait till the router reboots

    (Wireless will not be enabled till you complete the next step)

    &#183; Click on the Basic Settings link on the left side navigation pane and configure the following

    Does your Internet connection require a login? – No

    Account Name – blank

    Domain Name – blank

    Internet IP Address

    Use Static IP Address

    IP Address –

    IP Subnet Mask –

    Gateway IP Address –

    Domain Name Server (DNS) Address

    Use These DNS Servers

    Primary DNS –

    Secondary DNS –

    Router MAC Address

    Use Default Address

    &#183; Click on Apply and wait till the router restarts

    &#183; Connect the Network Cable coming from the ADSL Modem to the Wireless Router

    Few things to remember –

    &#183; Don’t connect the ADSL Lan Cable to the Internet Uplink port of the Wireless Router. It never worked for me. Always connect it to one of the 4 ports excluding the designated Internet port.

    &#183; IP Addresses can be anything of your choice. But it is a good idea to follow the 192.168.x.x convention

    &#183; If you get lost any time, feel free to reset the configuration by poking a pin into the reset slot on the modem and the router.

    &#183; Don’t compromise on the security. Always enable WPA and save your key. Don’t let your friendly neighbors ride on your network!

    Have a happy Wi-Fi surfing and drop a comment in case you want more inputs
