Asianet Dataline Cable Broadband Modem WiFi Connectivity Issues

I have been using the Asianet Cable broadband connection for a while without any issues. Everything was fine till the last week.

Last week I faced connectivity problems on my computers connected to the Asianet WiFi network.

I was a little disappointed while checking up for help tutorials because there are not many resources available.

Ironically I received no help from their technical support. Every time I received either a busy tone or no answer.

They provide Cisco DPC2320 Wireless Residential Gateway as a modem, and it has both routing and WiFi features. Fortunately, I could fix the issues by myself without extra information.

This tutorial explains the steps I performed to fix the Asianet Broadband WiFi connectivity problems.

My Experience With Asianet Broadband

I wrote this review in 2014. Asianet support is so better now.

After paying the full amount in advance, I had to wait at least a week before getting the connection. They said that the delay was due to the shortage of cable to my house from the nearest connection.

I called them multiple times, and after one week, one technician came and activated the modem.

The major problem I feel is, Asianet wants me to keep one tab open by login into their website whenever I want to go online.

If I close the tab, the Internet connection will disconnect. Then I need to log on to their website again with the username and password provided by them.

I am happy with the speed they provide so far, but I must say I am not fully satisfied with their technical support.

Another disappointment is about the Asianet modem lease agreement, which I feel not so customer-friendly.

I strongly advise a new user to read their modem lease agreement before applying for their service. I smell their modem rental policy really bad.

My Asianet Broadband review will not be honest if I don't mention it.
