    Well , is there any way to use Asianet modem to connect Reliance broadband ? I have been using Asianet DataLine for my home Internet but now shifting to different location. I purchased the modem offered by Asianet DataLine service. so I can keep it with me. I wonder if the same modem can be used to Connect Reliance cable broadband ? BTW which is faster Asianet Internet or Reliance Internet ?

    Hope I am not disturbing you.

    Easy and Simple. Thanx


  5. @Bino

    The configuration step provided in the article is general for all modem versions provided by Reliance broadband.

    @ Mr. Nair

    If your Asianet modem supports PPPoE configuration, you can use the modem for Reliance broadband.

    Speed of Internet service can vary with plans and it is difficult to say about Speed difference between Asianet Internet and Reliance Internet.

    The IP address you have mentioned is a public IP address not the modem IP address. Login IP address of your Reliance Modem is

    If you have changed the modem login IP address, following link will help you to find it.

  17. @ Jaibhim

    Do you have Reliance modem already ? Before planning to buy a router for your reliance connection you must consider your needs. How fast wireless network you need ? How many computers you want to connect etc. If it is for business needs I recommend you to go for business class routers.

    I am not able to access the settings page of my Binatone DT815 Reliance BB Modem, I tried all the combinations.

    I tried to replace the reliance modem with cisco modem+router but it is not working.

    I heard that reliance BB needs some special configurations in the modem to be worked.

    Any help?

    Do you mean the login IP is not allowing you to enter the Reliance modem setup page or the username and the password ?
