Netgear: Configuring for BSNL Dataone

I had no choice so I had to take BSNL (as stated in the previous post), but when the supplied modem broke (and also since I wanted an wireless router which they never seemed to have in stock) I chose to buy a separate router instead of waiting for BSNL to fix it.

The modem that I bought, is actually an ADSL router from Netgear. Model number is DG834G v3, but as I bought it about 6 months ago, if you buy one now you'll most likely get a future version. It has a wireless port, as well as 4 Ethernet ports. Also Netgear, unlike UT Starcom (the brand of modem that BSNL provided me), has an active website with support, documentation, and firm wire updates. And needless to say, I didn't face any problem from it. It is a hell of a modem. If you don't believe me check out some of the reviews in Google.

Here are the configurations for BSNL Dataone connection. This configurations are mentioned for Netgear, although it should work with any other modem too - only the order and the naming may not exactly match.

1) Basic Settings
Does Internet connection require a login? Yes
Encapsulation: PPPoE
Login: [your username without the '@bsnl.in' part]
Password: [your password]
Service name: [you may choose to leave it empty, or optionally put 'bsnl.in' here]
Idle timeout in minutes: 0
Internet IP Address: Get dynamically from ISP
Domain Name Server: Use these DNS - choose any two from the following list of DNS
BSNL DNS: 61.1.96.69, 61.1.96.71, 218.248.255.145, 218.248.255.193
Alternatively, if the above is not working for some problem you can choose Open DNS which is slower, but sometimes more reliable - 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220. However it is advisable to switch over to BSNL DNS whenever possible, as it would be much faster for a BSNL connection.
NAT (Network Access Translation): Enabled

2) ADSL Settings
Multiplexing Method: LLC-BASED
VPI: 0
VCI: 35
DSL Mode: ADSL2+

After these your Internet connection should work. To change any other configuration of the modem, and also for help on the configuration options mentioned above, you can scroll through the Help section that comes in blue on the right side of the page as you adjust the settings.

  1. How did you configure the RJ11 input from BSNL line to go into the RJ45 input port of NETGEAR router?
    Or did your router really have an RJ11 input option?

  2. The one that I am using is Netgear DG843G, which is an ADSL Modem + Router. It has an RJ11 input, but no RJ45 input. The one that you have is probably a WG model, with a router only. You will need a separate ADSL modem that will convert the ADSL telephone signal. You can attach the output of the modem to the input port of your Netgear router.

    can u help me??

  5. Hi Shareef,
    I think you are having a configuration issue because the C2110 and NETGEAR router (and any other router for that matter) will have IP address set to 192.168.1.1 by default and these will conflict.

    I connected to my NETGEAR router (C2110 is disconnected at this moment from both the laptop the netgear router) and changed its IP address to 192.168.2.1. DHCP is turned on now.

    C2110 continues to be at 192.168.1.1.

    Connect NETGEAR router to C2110 and laptop to NETGEAR (you can test wireless later...). Now turn both routers off and turn them on.

    Hope it works...

  12. Shaik, if it is a problem with the DNS then the settings mentioned in the blog on OpenDNS will sove it.

    But since you can't open some sites, and (I presume) you _can_ open some, it could be a problem with your ISP. You will need to speak with them to understand what is wrong. Meanwhile you can try to browse with an online proxy or anonimizer (search in google, there are many) if it is not blocked. If you use this method you should be careful about filling in any private details, eg. your password etc.
