Now you have to configure the Modem as per your requirement. The Modem may be preconfigured with Multiple Virtual Circuits as per the ISP. You have to edit/delete the preconfigured circuits according to your ISP. Click the PVC summery button to get the Service Information summary. In this popup window you will get the pre configured circuits.

If you want to configure your Modem for BSNL select the PVC which is configured with VPI=0 and VCI=35 (In this screenshot it is PVC2). For MTNL go for the PVC which is configured with VPI=0, VCI=32 (In the screenshot it is not present . In this case you have to select any PVC and edit it). For Airtel go for the PVC configured with VPI=1, VCI=32 (Here it is PVC0)

Close the Summery Popup window and select the required PVC as specified in the above mentioned step. Now here we have selected PVC2 for configuring the modem for BSNL broadband connection (Remember we selected PVC2 because it is already configured with VPI=0 and VCI=32 which is the settings for BSNL)

Wireless MAC address filter

Mac filtering will give you additional foolproof WiFi security. MAC (Media Access Control) address is a unique number of each network hardware. This is the identity of a machine . There will not be two network cards (Any type) with a same MAC address. This is the manufacture set hard coded one.

Through the MAC filtering you can optionally allow or deny a particular WiFi device on your network. You have to enter the MAC address of the client machines in the Modem to allow or deny a particular machine. For example – You have four laptops in a network and you want to enable MAC filtering. For this the MAC address of each machines to be entered in the Modem for connectivity, means you have to save the addresses of all four machines in your Modem.

How to find MAC address

  • For Windows PC go to start > Run ant type cmd
  • Then type ipconfig/all and you will get some values as displayed.
  • Note down the physical address of WiFi adaptor – This is your MAC address.

Important: You might have noted down the MAC Address like this 02-14-C4-C2-98-26 but if you enter like this Modem will display an error message “invalid MAC address”. You have to replace the “-“ with “:” means to enter the address like 02:14:C4:C2:98:26

  • To enable the Mac filtering Set the Mac Address filtering to “Activated”
  • Set the Action to “Allow association”
  • Enter the MAC address of your devices in the Mac Address fields

Save the settings and Reboot the Modem. Then connect your PC, Laptops or Smart phones using WiFi.

      Hi Rahul,
      I guess you need to downgrade your firmware version if you are not able to select WPA-PSK type authentication for WiFi. Refer to the post I have written on Dec 29, 2011. I have written step by step instructions. If you can’t locate my post, send me your email ID, and I’ll send you the instructions.
      Peace,
      Vikram Chugh

    How to see all the devices connected through Wifi?

  • Nitin 07/25/2013, 1:27 AM Reply

    I did reset my Airtel Beetel Modem, now trying to connect with BSNL broadband. I followed absolve steps, selected PVC2 with VPI/VCI as 0/35. But unfortunately it’s not able to connect. Giving me status Connected but also saying invalid PPPOE password. As far as I know I am using same credential provided by BSNL when they installed NSN modem few years back.
    I can use NSN modem without any difficulty. But unable to find UserName/Password from 192.168.1.1 with NSN.
    Please let me know how can I see username while using NSN modem with BSNL.
    Thanks

    dear sir, last week my modem packed up and i got another one from MTNL. they configured the modem at their site. now, everytime that i try to connect to the internet i am unable to do so though the DSL light is steady and all other lights are normal but the Internet light does not come on showing no internet connectivity. i think the modem has not been configured properly. if i switch the modem on and off and remove and reconnect the adsl wire i can get connected. can you suggest to me what the probable cause of this problem is. i never had a problem with my previous modem but am having it ever since i replaced that one with the 450tc1 modem.
