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 the manual configuration, we should log in 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 the Internet. If we configure it in bridge mode, only one computer can access the Internet.

Configure Internet Connection on BSNL Teracom Modem

    Type on the address bar of your browser and press enter to access the modem login page. You will be prompted to enter Teracom modem username and password to access BSNL modem.

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
Alex 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.

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.

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.
Unknown 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.

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.

If you are using Android Smartphone, you can create a WiFi network without going for unnecessary troubles by simply enabling WiFi Hotspot feature on the phone.

I'm using Teracom Type II ADSL2+, What is the use of USB in it?
Can we use USB Dongle in it and share the Wifi?

Alex George said…

The USB port is for the use of connecting your PC to the modem using a USB cable to get Internet in case if you don't use Ethernet cable or WiFi. You cannot connect USB dongle to it.

Thanks for your reply. Can we use USB Dongle in the modem to share the internet.

My ISP is apptel broadband,for access internet i should provide login credentials.If i connect to one device over wifi through login credentials and connect another to wifi it asks login credentials if i give login the first device get logout of isp. Thanks in advance.
Alex George said…
Have you properly reset the modem ?
Type ipconfig on command prompt and check the default gateway address.

Also try hard reset by following the link below.
Alex George said…

It seems your modem is configured in bridge mode. You must configure the modem in PPPoE. Try follow the guidelines in this article and if it is not working ask the ISP customer support to configure your modem in PPPoE mode.

Hi I contacted customer care but there is no use. .. they don't know abt vci and vpi.. how to find it right for my isp (apptel broadband). What they stand for?
Alex George said…
Hi Naveen,

I have no experience with using apptel broadband and I do not know how to configure their modem. All I can suggest is to send an email to their technical support wing using the email address

VPI = Virtual Path Identifier

VCI= Virtual Channel Identifier

These two are important values which enables connection between Service Provider and modem at customer place.

dear sir,kindly look the matter as we having a modem teracom configured with bsnl conn. for broadband as we are able to surf internet facility only via wire but not working through wireless wifi
plz reply sir

Alex George said…
@Ganderbal Indanegas,

It seems either the Local Area Network (LAN) is not configured properly. Could you answer the following questions ?

1. How many devices are connected to the modem via Ethernet cable ?

2. Are you sure you are connecting the correct Wireless network with correct password

3. Make sure there is no MAC address filtering is enabled in wireless network.

4. What is the IPv4 address you are getting while typing ipconfig on the command prompt on the computer which is connected to modem using cable ?
Unknown said…
When I connect my BSNL Teracom modem wifi with my mobile it will show "obtaining IP address" and not connected. But If I select static in setting it will ask for IP address and after entering IP address it will connect. Is it possible to not entering any IP address and only entering my wifi password to connect to internet. Please help me.
Alex George said…
You must be able to connect to the WiFi automatically after you enter WiFi name (SSID) and password. However, your computer connects to WiFi once you use static IP address and I suggests you to keep the same IP address as long as you are not having any issues to connect.
