    Post Configuring Belkin Wireless Router for Reliance Wimax Connection

    Hello

    I have just got a Reliance Wimax Connection here at Bangalore. My apartment is in Whitefield, Bangalore. As Reliance has a tower near ITPL; I have not encountered any problems with the connection so far and the connection is very fast.

    The problem is configuring my Belkin Wireless router to this Wimax connection. I had gone through the other thread and tried to follow the instructions given for configuring the wireless router for D LINK, Linksys and Net Gear routers; but did not get any success. I gave the Dynamic IP address for the WAN connection and hard coded the DNS servers. I found four DNS servers when I gave Ipconfig/all for the connection. However, there was only provision to provide two in the router settings. I gave the first two and later on tried different permutations and combinations but to no avail.

    I appreciate if anyone can help me in this regard.

    Default Reliance wimax with Vonage wireless router

    I am also having a similar issue, I came from the US and got Reliance Wimax installed at my parent's house, I am not able to get the wireless router working. For some reason, reliance internet needs us to enter userid/pwd at www.reliancebroadband.co.in and then the internet works on a PC/laptop, but with this I am able to use only one PC at a time, I need PC and wireless router and possibly another laptop to be all on the internet at the same time. How do I get this in order? In the wireless router, the only place it prompts to enter a userid/pwd is when you select a PPoE account, that' didn't work. I selected Dynamic IP address option, but that doesn't have any user id/pwd option in the router.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Sujay, Reliance folks are not allowing sharing of the 'Wimax' connection. Pl. note that this applies only to Wimax connections. They allowed it initially and later stopped. And new development is that they are blocking even Linux boxes. I tried to use a Linux box as a Wifi router (I had a spare laptop which I converted into a Wifi router). Now the Linux box too doesn't get DHCP address.. I am planning to modify my Linux DHCP Client to fake that it is a Windows box. Will post you once I am done..

    In the meantime I begged my neighbor to open his BSNL wifi to me so that I won't lose my job.. You can't depend on Reliance connection for anything serious like connecting to your office VPN etc.. Their customer care told me that they provide internet connection to the consumers for 'entertainment purpose only' :-)

    Coming to the Login part, in the good old days - i.e. a few months ago - when they were allowing Wifi routers, you could login from any of the workstation behind your wifi router and that's sufficient. There is nothing like router authenticating as in PPPoE with Reliance Wimax setup..

    Best solution : Somehow go get an Airtel or BSNL connection so that your parents will be happy forever.. so, go get it by hook or crook - after all "Ends Support Means" !!

    BTW: I am almost close to getting my BSNL connection. I will still retain my Wimax since speed is good to download podcasts.. - As reliance said, this connection is only for entertainment :-)

    Hi Bibek,
    I tried doing the same but am not sure of what option to put in the type of connection. I tried putting PPPOE but wasnt sure of what service to put in there.
    I am not a expert in configuring a router doing it for the first time, so would be good if you could explain in simple words the options you selected for the auto setup.

    Help from any one else would also be welcome.

    thanks
    Rahul

    You need to select something like DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address) as the connection method. Your Router will get ip from reliance.

    Lightbulb Here are the steps.

    Hi,
    This is piyush, i am staying in Whitefields area in Bangalore.

    The steps to configure your Belkin router are:


    1) Ensure that Modem's out has been put into router's "Internet" input and power chord inserted. Insert the additional CAT5 cable into your laptop.

    2) Insert the installation CD into your laptop and follow the instruction (Click Next).

    3) This router setup will ask for the network name, provide any network name you like and then go to the company website mentioned in the manual to configure the password protection for your network.

    4) Restart you MODEM after 6-10 sec and then check for your network name.

    By the end of this you'll find that you have logged into the net.

    It worked for me, hope it works for you too.

    Cheers,

    Piyush

    guys I am in the same soup. I have searched alot and was not able to find a solution as ur posts are dated I was wondering if there was any new update to this old problem.

    One additional thing I have noticed is that the modem and internet light does not come on when i plug the modem in the router.


    Cheers,
    Vishal
