How to Configure Broadband On BSNL Teracom Modem in PPPoE Mode

To configure BSNL Broadband Internet on Teracom modem, we don't need to run the setup CD. We can manually setup broadband Internet connection on Teracom modem if you have the Internet Username and Password provided by BSNL. In manual configuration, we should login to the Teracom modem by typing the modem username and Password(Teracom username and password is not the same BSNL Internet account username and password ). Since BSNL is a DSL broadband ISP, we need to configure Teracom device in PPPoE mode. If we configure BSNL Teracom modem in PPPoE mode, we can connect more computers to it and share Internet. If we configure it in bridge mode, only one computer can access Internet.

Good. That was a nice modem configuration. I think teracom modem is good one from BSNL. After all how can I configure multiple computers in this modem . I have a version of this teracom modem with just one lan port

Siju George said...

You can share your Internet connection among multiple computers even if your Teracom model has just one LAN Port. You should configure the Wireless LAN and connect multiple computers.

I got one call from BSNL they said to follow some instructions to update modem.

telnet 192.168.1.1
login admin
password admin
system set serial-number 002

any one know what all these is that real procedures or any trap is there.thanks for reply

Siju George said...

May be they want you to update firmware of your BSNL modem. Anyway if you are not sure whether those guys are from BSNL or not, I recommend you to don't follow their directions. If you are not having any issues with accessing internet you don't need to follow what they say.

May be you can contact your local BSNL Engg. for more help.

Malik said...

How many types modem supplied by BSNL ? Is BSNL ADSL connection or Cable Internet connection ? I have a coaxial cable modem, can I connect it with dataone?

karan said...

hii,
i m using teracom(type 1) modem provided by bsnl on my desktop. Now i want to use it with my laptop also using USB.
please provide me step to proceed.

thank u

Admin said...

You cannot use both Ethernet port and USB port of a modem to access Internet at the same time. If you have only one LAN port on your type 1 modem supplied by BSNL, you may have to use either a switch or ICS(Internet Connection Sharing) to share Internet between your PC and Laptop.

Parandur B Krishnaswamy said...

My terracom modem supplied by BSNL,Chennai gets internet connectivity through the LAN port using a data cable. However, some glitch has occurred in the wireless settings with the result that I am not able to access internet on my smart phone. I wanted to get on to the config. link to check entries. But every time I try to log onto the config. page using default user name and pwd, they are rejected and a message comes saying it is a protected content. Pl. advise me as to how I can get over this problem and recheck the wireless access settings. Thanks.

Alex said...

Have you changed the Teracom modem default username and password ? If yes, you must use the current username and password to login modem setup page. If not just clear the browser history and cookies and try to login back.

Hi Dalip,

You can follow the same steps provided in this tutorial. You might want to call MTNL tech support and ask them the VPI and VCI values to complete the procedure.

inGen said...

Hi. I did all that u said in the above steps but here's the problem :

When I change the "internet" setting to PPPoE, I can connect through wifi but not through LAN, and wen i select bridge mode" instead of "PPPoE", i was able to connect through LAN but not through wifi. Please help! Its been a month since I've been trying to connect through both LAN & wifi !!! :( i'm pretty sure that they are correct (when i input through the PC or laptop). If u may please e-mail me the solution to this problem at prajithpillai@gmail.com.

Seems a very strange issue. I hope you have configured the BSNL Teracom modem according to the steps provided in the tutorial.
