Moreover sometimes the connection does not come back, and it makes me to use static DNS ip address like ( , to get connected. And in that case some sites does not open also.

    Hi Sujith,
    Where can i find the username and password(BSNL)
    is it usuly the Lan phone number or something else?


    • Sujith 04/02/2013, 8:10 PM Reply

      Default password is “password”.
      Username conventions changes as per city/circle. If you forgot your username, just submit a written application, it will be resolved withing a day.
      However you can do some guesswork.
      in some circles the username is like this.

      in some places it suffixes some city/circle identification code also at the end. In that case it will be
      Another option is your broadband bill. In bill details (Attached with the main bill) on top right corner you can see the username.

  • Manoj kumar shelford 04/02/2013, 9:31 PM Reply

    Hey Shyam,

    There is no need of guesses, you can get you user name from the landline/broadband bill

    alongwith the bill comes the second page, which has details of the charges, there in the column of the details regarding the broadband charges (Phone number/Service Id), is mentioned the user name in the form of Service ID, the service id is the username and the default password is “password” itself it looks something like


    the text quoted as xxxxxxx varies according the circles…

    hope it helped you out…..

    Hi Sujit,
    i am the owner of the paying guest. I am providing internet connection to my guests ( 100 people). I taken Airtel 1Mbps internet connection and two Dlink DSL 2730U N150( two antennas router+modem).
    Now every one in my paying guest complaining that internet speed not getting. Few guests alerted that, some one using Bit torrent application for downlaoding movies, files ..etc .. by this application more bandwidth is consumed. is it true. if so i want to block that services fromt he router itself, how can i do it.

    i am waiting for your reply.

    • Sujith 05/05/2013, 10:56 PM Reply

      This router doesn’t provide individual user bandwidth restriction. However you can block the ports used by bit torrent clients (1024-65534).
