    Hello i have purchased BSNL Wimax Soma 400. An ethernet cable from device to my computer is connected. I need to access net on muliple computers, i have a switch DLink but it does not work.

    The router its WAN port is it RJ-11 or RJ-45 and any idea its price in India?

    BTW i called a BSNL tech and he tells any wifi dsl router will do, a cable from the soma network device (ethernet ) has to fit in a wan port of the router (so its RJ-45) and all computers can connect via LAN, Laptop can connect to it using wifi.

    Any other routers which can do the job as in name brand, dont want an expensive one to buy

    (* my ref page 15 annexures)

    [​IMG]1.
    ALWAYS RJ45 for a wifi router.
    You can try Netgear wgr614V9 wifi router with 4 lan ports.
    2.
    Usually the Rj45 carries some D.C in addition to signals
    PoE ( power over ethernet ). for a Wimax setup.
    3.
    I am not sure , where the modem is installed.
    At the Mast head ( antenna outside ) , or in your room.
    4.
    If in your room ,a coaxial cable may be connected to the modem
    and the lan wire rj45 can connect to computer (or WIFI router WAN port ).
    5.
    If you can access the modem menu pages
    Annex as screenshot(jpg) Device status or connection status.
    6.

    Also confirm whether you use a dialer ,
    ( userId and PW entered in a window in computer )
    or the internet connects automatically.

    Feedback item wise please.

    You can try and test
    with a borrowed WIFI router such as
    Netgear wgr614v9 and connect the Rj45 cable to its WAN
    (Internet port ).
    I am not sure this will work.
    Anyway please copy/paste following data here.
    ipconfig /all
    Procedure:
    In computer
    START RUN type cmd
    OK
    New window
    typeipconfig /all
    Para two:
    Which one you purchased?

    Para three:
    Not much information here.
