Asianet Dataline Cable Broadband Modem WiFi Connectivity Issues

I have been using Asianet Cable broadband connection for more than a month without any issues. They provide Cisco DPC2320 Wireless Residential Gateway as modem and it has both routing and WiFi feature. Everything was fine but very recently I was facing connectivity problems on my computers which are connected to the Asianet WiFi network. I was a little disappointed while checking up for help tutorials because there is not much resources available. Perhaps I called at wrong time, whenever I called the technical support, it said either the user is busy or no one is picking the call. Fortunately I could fix the issues by myself without extra information. This tutorial tells the steps I have done to fix the Internet connectivity problems I faced with a normal guide about how to manage the Asianet Cable modem hassle free.

My Experience With Asianet Broadband
After paying the full amount in advance, I had to wait at least a week before getting the connection. They said it was due to the shortage of cable to my home from the nearest connection. I called them multiple times and after one week one technician came and activated the modem. Major problem I feel is, Asianet wants me keep one tab open by login in to their website whenever I want to go online. If I close the tab, Internet connection will be disconnected and I need to log on to their website again with the username and password provided by them. So far I am happy with the speed they provide but I must say I am not fully satisfied with their technical support. another disappointment is about Asianet modem lease agreement which I feel not so customer friendly. I really suggest a new user to read their modem lease agreement before applying for their service because I smell it really bad and my review will not be completed without specifying it.
