Making the​ BSNL DataOne Wireless Home Network Guide
So, Here is​ my Step-By-Step guide to​ configuring a​ Wi-Fi network with BSNL DataOne .​
Though many wireless routers claim that it​ is​ a​ no-brainer setup to​ configure the​ wireless network, I​ found it​ to​ be not as​ easy as​ it​ looks to​ be .​
For example, NetGear comes with a​ wizard that never works with BSNL broadband connected via HUAWEI SmartAX 880 .​
For those of​ you desperate to​ take your BSNL DataOne broadband wireless, follow these steps .​
It took me more than 2 days to​ figure and​ come out with these configuration details.
Before I​ start, let me share what I​ have:
1)BSNL DataOne 256Kbps connection.
2)HUAWEI SmartAX MT880 (The modem supplied by BSNL).
3) (configuring netgear dg632 for​ BSNL)NetGear WGR614v5
There are 2 steps to​ configuring your wireless network .​
First, you have to​ change the​ default settings of​ the​ SmartAX MT880 modem and​ configure it​ to​ enable
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.
1)Configuring and​ testing your Broadband connection
·Setup the​ modem as​ per the​ instructions mentioned in​ the​ manual .​
Ensure that the​ RJ11 (thin) cable from the​ splitter is​ connected to​ the​ ADSL port and​ the​ RJ45 cable connects your machine to​ the​ Ethernet port of​ the​ modem.
·Change the​ IP properties of​ your Ethernet card to​ the​ following:
192.168.1.2
255.255.255.0
192.168.1.1
·Open the​ browser and​ type 192.168.1.1 to​ go to​ the​ HUAWEI configuration tool.

PVC Number ? PVC 0

·Click on Apply and​ allow the​ modem to​ restart.
·Close the​ browser window
·Open the​ browser and​ type 192.168.1.1

·You should see the​ Summary page .​
The Status is​ normally Red indicating that the​ connection is​ not ON.

Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway ? 192.168.1.90
Preferred DNS server ? 61.1.96.69 (BSNL DNS Server IP)
Alternate DNS server ? 61.1.96.71 (BSNL DNS Server IP)
·Open your browser and​ type your favorite URL .​
You should be online by this time!
2)Configuring the​ Wireless Router and​ enabling the​ WPA security
·Connect the​ network cable from the​ NetGear wireless router to​ the​ machine.

Select the​ following on the​ IP properites dialog.

Passphrase -
·Click on Generate
·Record the​ value of​ Key1 ? This is​ required when you log on to​ your Wi-Fi network the​ first time.
·Click on Apply and​ wait till the​ router reboots
(Wireless will not be enabled till you complete the​ next step)
·Click on the​ Basic Settings link on the​ left side navigation pane and​ configure the​ following

Secondary DNS ? 61.1.96.71
Router MAC Address
Use Default Address
·Click on Apply and​ wait till the​ router restarts
·Connect the​ Network Cable coming from the​ ADSL Modem to​ the​ Wireless Router
Few things to​ remember ?
·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.
·IP Addresses can be anything of​ your choice .​
But it​ is​ a​ good idea to​ follow the​ 192.168.x.x convention
·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.
·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.
