    :) there everyone,
    I recently purchased the Dlink DSL-2640T ADSL 2 Modem, Wireless b/g Router. But unable to set it up on my computer. However, UT300R2U modem router works fine. Please help :D. I need to connect my laptop and mobile phone using wireless connectivity to net. Some of the posts listing automated connection of UT300R2U didn't help. Thanks ;)

    first of all go to connection settings & see if any connection has VPI/VCI values 0 & 35 respectively.if not create one such connection.select connection type as pppoe,encapsulation--LLC,make this connection as default route.enter your bsnl username & password(without @bsnl.in i think) & enable DNS.set it to automatic but if you have to enter use these servers(open dns)---208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.also enable DHCP.first connect to bsnl & then you may want to ask about port forwarding.

    thanks whitestar-999. It worked like wonders. I believe that the DNS parameter was only missing link to the nirvana. Anyway my iPhone and laptop are able to connect through wi-fi. Thanks again. The port forwarding is still not required, so my requirements ends here.

    Hey hi ....
    well that was good u could connect ur iPhone to the wireless .....
    Can u let me know which firmware version are u using on ur iPhone?
    And if u have used the customised app?

    It is 1.1.3. No customised application. However, no security protocol has been setup in the wireless network.

    be careful about your wifi network if you are not using any security(WEP etc).keep an eye on your usage as someone else can connect to your wifi.its better if you turn it on.try it & if everything works fine then keep it on.if not then post whatever problems you faced.

    actually I am using three dataone connections all connecting through a single unlimited plan, the other two just the basic one to keep the DSL activated. Anyway hardly any house is within 500m area. I shall introduce the same once free for a day.

    can u guys please tell me where one can purchase Dlink DSL 2640T Wireless Router. and the cost of the said product

    shriniketsarkar New Member

    If its unlimited connection plan then as though the security will not mean anything for the usage.But security may help u to reduce threats to ur network.

    Well it depends on how u want to purchase it.I mean whether u want to purchase it online or u need any shop address......?
    Well if u think of purchasing Netgear Wireless Wrouter WGR614 then it will cost u something around 2k or say 1900....depends.

    I purchased it at Nagpur, Silver Palace, Yashwant Stadium for Rs. 3800. The Modem is ADSL2+, Wireless router. In Mumbai, Lamington road, it can be had at Rs. 2900.
    To SriniketSarkar: Now introduced WAP protocol 10 bit security, no problem.

    i can not find info on this modem's settings page and i dont have this modem either.......
    it would be gr8 if u could upload screenshots of every settings page here.(or make a rar file with those pics, upload it at any filehosting site and give the link here)
    or u can wait 4 someone with knowledge of that modem too.

    but is the bridge mode possible in wireless? I have configured my desktop to use bridged with DSL 2640 T using dialer, but my laptop which uses wireless LAN cannot connect. although i can connect a lan with my desktop + DSL wireless modem + wireless lan enabled laptop i cannot enable the dialer in the LAPtop to recognise the internet connection. Is there anyway we can set username and password inside the dlink modem?
