Easy and Simple. Thanx

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

I have a Reliance Wired Broadband Connection. Can anybody tell me that, which brand of Router can work best for Reliance Broadband???
Alex said…
@ 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?
Admin said…
Hi Sujith,

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