Configure Beetel 450BXI wiFi Modem with BSNL

Initially I had Airtel Broadband connection with Wired Modem (Beetel 220BXI). AT that time I had 2 PCs. Later when I got my Dell Lappy, I asked Airtel to get me a WiFi Modem. They had two options, either purchase or take it on rent. I purchased it. So I had another Modem, Beetel 450BXI.

Some time back, I removed Airtel and got BSNL broadband connection, and they gave one Wired Modem UT300RTU. I had asked to BSNL Technical person who had connected this modem in my house about my existing Beetel Modem, He said, he needs to change the Firmware (?) and which can be done by written application only. [Believe me, to change my Broadband Plan, I had to visit BSNL office and submit an application for that, whereas with Airtel, it was just one call to customer care]

Well, after few days, I thought, lets try to configure WiFi Modem. It was so simple.. below was the steps ..

1. Connected The BSNL Line cable to 450BXI, and connected network cable from port1 (This modem has 4 ports) to my Laptop.
2. In Browser, Open 192.168.1.1 [Catch, BSNL default credentials are admin/admin, whereas Airtel has admin/password, and I had to use admin/password]
3. Click Advanced Setup -> WAN. Delete all the rows by selecting all Remove option and clicking Remove.
4. Click Add. Enter VPI=0, VCI=35. Service Category= UBR Without PCR Click Next.
5. Connection Type : PPPoE, Encapsulation: LLC/SNAP , Click Next ..
6. PPP username= hk80XXXXXXXX@bsnl.in [80 is Bangalore STD code, and XX is my landline number], Please ask to Customer Care for ur username, But ideally, It should be same. Password is password. Service Name = DataOne . Authentication Method = AUTO MTU=1492 , Nothing else to select. Click next
7. You may/may not Enable Firewall. Enable NAT. Enable WAN Service. and service name = pppoe_35_1 Click Next. Save.
8. Now in Left side pane, Click Wireless. Select Basic. Check Enable Wireless only. Give SSID name as your name or something [When ur wifi device will search, u will see this name listed as available wiFi network.] Country India. Max Client 16 or less. Do not check Enable Wireless Guest Network. Click Save/Apply.
9. Click Wireless->Security. SSID=as mentioned above. Network Authentication=Open. WEP encrytion=Enabled. Strength=64 bit. Current network key=1 Network Key 1= Your Password. This will be asked, If u try to connect to this Network using ur WiFi Device. Save/Apply
10. Click Advanced Setup. Click Save/Reboot.

That's it !!! .. Now after Modem Reboot, You will be able to use WiFi.

It worked for me, and I thought to share this with world Hope this works for you as well..

Also, I believe, the default firmware supplied with any Modem should work with any Broadband service provider. Only their configurations are bit different.

Keep Spreading Unconditional Love !!!

Ashish Kumar Jha said...

@Smruti WiFi modem will have small antena. 450 BXI is most probably WiFi modem. Steps to configure this modem with Reliance broadband should be similar, though I have not done that.

Hi, I have a beetel 450bxi ADSL2+ modem given by Airtel. I was using it for my BSNL. About an year ago I configured the wifi using the same steps you mentioned. It was working pretty well until last week. My laptop was showing the wifi connection but no internet. I checked the router using the site 192.168.1.1 its not opening. Then i connected using a network adapater cable and tried setting up wired internet connection, then also no luck. With power and network adapters connected, the router shows an orange LED blinking. no Internet or LAN LEDs are on. What could be the issue? Please help.

it might b a issue for the factory reset
you shul reset the modem configuration to factory settings by simply pinning /triggering the button located in the bottem of your beetle wifi device.
it will held you . press it for atoung 30 seconda and then reboot your modem.
after that put 192.168.1.1 on internet explorer.
username ... admin
passwors... admin/password.
hote it will resolve your issues.

Do the following steps, in order to use your NETGEAR/BEETEL ADSL2+ Router as WiFi Router for your FIBRE connection (FTTH)

1. First switch off your FIBRE modem.
2. Switch on your ADSL2+ ROUTER (NETGEAR or other)
3. Connect your computer through RJ45 network cable from Ethernet 1
(i.e. first port - as number mentioned in your router)
4. then login into - router
(i.e. http://192.168.0.1 for Netgear, 192.168.1.1 for Beetel or whatever default provided by router company)
5 Go to "Advanced" tab --- connection settings (of your WIFI Router / NETGEAR )
There you can find "LAN Settings"
6. LAN - Disable DHCP Server. (i.e. DHCP Server Off).
7. Save & Exit
8. RJ45 connection CABLE from AONT modem to your NETGEAR -- RJ45 (Ethernet 1 & not other Ethernet ports)

Other WIRELESS settings - same as whatever you have already. Then just restart - your NETGEAR & swtich on your FIBRE.

Your WIFI is enabled.
