Hi Purushothaman,

If you forget the BSNL modem password (where default password is admin), you need to reset the modem. There is no way to recover your previous password (password which you forgot).

siju George said...

What I understand from your message is:

You have BSNL wifi modem WA3002-g1 type 2 modem and 3 laptops.

You want to connect 3 laptops at the same time where you have one LAN port on modem.

You can share your wireless network and connect 2 other laptops to it.

hokka said...

Can this modem be used with MTNL network? Also, I want to connect 2 laptops and one mobile and one iphone 4 such a way that anyone can be used anytime irrespective of other laptop/mobile is switched on or off. Is it possible?

Siju George said...

Hi Hokka,

In order to clarify whether WA3002 -g1 UTStarcom ADSL modem is compatible with MTNL network, you should contact MTNL tech support. If the modem is compatible with their connection, you can configure this modem according to MTNL modem configuration guide.

SK GUPTA said...

Hi Dear,
there is one site "www.jkbankonline.com" which is not opening through my BSNL Dataone modem Model WA3002 g-1.Please help me if you can...

Alex said...

Hi SK Gupta,

Seems the specific website is blocked by firewall. Can you access the website "www.jkbankonline.com" though a proxy ?

May be this article may help you.

SK GUPTA said...

Dear Alex,
Thanks for the interest.When I use my modem in "Bridge mode", all sites open but when using in "PPPoE/LLC mode" the said site not opens.Please suggest me trouble shoot because I have to use PPPoE only.

SK GUPTA said...

Dear Alex,
Tor Browser works great even in PPPoE modem mode.But I am in doubt,is it safe to lonin banking sites through Tor browser.Please clarify.
Can it made possible to open all sites in PPPOE/LLc mode but not in Bridge mode ? So that I am not forced to choose Tor Browser.

Alex said...

Hi SK Gupta,

Tor is a reputed proxy but I recommend you to go banking websites directly (without any proxy).

Since you have performed most steps provided on my article, I suggest you to try one workaround found in the web.

Change current MTU value to 0

Source: http://www.computing.net/answers/networking/cant-open-certain-websites-with-pppoe-but-with-bridge-is-ok/49808.html

Check the step and let me know.

SK GUPTA said...

Dear Alex,thanks for further step.
I already read the link u have just given.I set MTU to 0(default)but this also not solved the problem.Please look ahead....

Alex said...

Hi SK Gupta,

There are some workarounds I recommend are:

1. Update the modem firmware

2. Try different MTU values

Try different values of MTU starting from 1440 to 1452

3. Disable BSNL firewall and check for the issue

SK GUPTA said...

Alash !
All done nothing positive....

Alex said...

Hi SK Gupta,

Seems you have tried most of the workarounds and the issue persists. What message you get while trying to access "www.jkbankonline.com" ?

Since you can access the website when the modem is bridged, you cannot blame the ISP firewall too.

I strongly believe NAT is the culprit. You may perform port forwarding on NAT or make your computer as DMZ(Demilitarized Zone)

SK GUPTA said...

Dear Alex would you please guide me to perform port forwarding on NAT or make your computer as DMZ.

SK GUPTA said...

Hi Dear,
After a lot of work-out I reach to a conclusion ----
(Microsoft.com and jkbank.com were not opening through my WA3002 g1 modem if it configures in PPPoE/LLC mode, but the said sites opening if Modem is in Bridge mode.
While checking from TCP Optimizer the result comes-
"Pinging [50.63.202.63] with 1500 bytes -> ..fragmented
Pinging [50.63.202.63] with 750 bytes ->Request Timed Out
The host you've chosen does not accept ICMP Pings, please chose a different one."

Now the question is that how to configure my modem in PPPoE/LLC mode so that the modem uses other ping rather than ICMP Ping ? because the sites which have restricted ICMP ping are not opening through my modem.


Please help.

Alex George said...

Hi SK Gupta,

I too get request timed out when I ping microsoft.com from my computer. Many discussion forums have this question and the conclusion is that microsoft.com is not responding to ICMP requests.

If one particular website is configured not to respond ICMP requests, it doesn't mean you cannot access that website though your modem.

For your specific issue, I recommend you to contact BSNL technical support and I am sure they can help you to resolve the issue.

Have you disabled the firewall on BSNL modem and checked the issue ?

SK GUPTA said...

Hi,
I tried after turning off firewall
but the result is negative.

Alex George said...

Hi SK Gupta,

Perhaps by converting your computer as DMZ host, you may be able to fix this issue. This tutorial will help you.
