Nokia Siemens Residential Router is for broadband DSL connection. You need USB modems to connect to 2G and 3G connections.

I have a Nokia siemens 1600 model router.will it a hybrid one?. it has 4 LAN ports.i want to make a small network using this and internet sharing. will it be possible?. if so can u plz tell me how to do?

Siju George said...

Yes you can use it to expand/create a network.

If you enable DHCP, your LAN ports will give unique IP addresses to the computers connected to it.

You have to get the modem configuration details like VCI value, VPI etc from Reliance technical support. After that you can follow the same steps.

Do you wish to connect your laptop with wireless or with Ethernet Cable ?

You can connect your laptop to another LAN port of the router using an Ethernet cable.

Have you checked the wireless network availability with another wireless device (laptop or smartphone ) ? If there is no wireless network from Nokia siemens 1600 router, perform a firmware update on it. Also check for any possible wireless interference with another wireless devices.

Seems strange, are you sure your Windows Phone/laptop is connected to the right router ?

To check it, change the SSID and try to connect and access the Internet again.

If it doesn't have Wireless tab, I believe you have a type 1 modem without WiFi.
