    Hi all,

    Does anybody know how to setup WA3002G4 for "always on" internet connection.

    BSNL personnel have installed it in Dial up mode and hence WAN does not work. I tried setting up WAN after saving dataone user name and password in modem setup but then it does not work.

    I think this is a new modem and hence I could not find any old posts on it.

    some progress...

    I was able to set up always on connection with this modem. With this method I do not need to dial the connection every time I boot the PC.

    Mind you , this was done on a Desktop with an Ethernet connection to WA3002G4. I am yet to test this with a Wireless Laptop although I have enabled and encrypted WAN. I "think" this should be a multiuser setup.

    Here is what I have done.

    Go into modem setup from browser (, admin/admin)

    Click Advanced Setup> WAN Setup
    Click "Edit" on First Row showing 0/35 under VPI/VCI column.
    Uner ATM PVC Configuration
    VPI: [0-255]=35
    VCI: [1-65535]=35

    Enable VLAN Tagging = do not select
    Service Category: = UBR without PCR
    click next
    Select "PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)" and Encapsulation Mode = "LLC/SNAP-Bridging"
    Click Next

    Under PPP Username and Password
    PPP Username: = <Your Dataonne UserName>
    PPP Password: = <Your Dataone Password>
    PPPoE Service Name: = Leave this Blank
    Authentication Method: = Auto
    Do not select anything else on this page.

    Enable NAT = yes
    Enable Firewall =yes
    Enable IGMP Multicast = yes
    Enable WAN Service = yes
    Service Name =pppoe_0_35_1 (or anything else)
    Click next

    Now "WAN Setup - Summary" should look like this
    VPI / VCI: 0 / 35
    Connection Type: PPPoE
    Service Name: pppoe_0_35_1
    Service Category: UBR
    IP Address: Automatically Assigned
    Service State: Enabled
    NAT: Enabled
    Firewall: Enabled
    IGMP Multicast: Enabled
    Quality Of Service: Disabled

    Click "Save".
    Click "Save and Reboot" on next page

    **Restart your PC and WA3002G4**

    Go to "Network Connections"

    Select "Local Area Connection" and "1394 Connection" at the same time (hold down control key)
    Right click and select "Bridge Connections".
    Let windows Create Network Bridge. After few seconds it will shows status as "Connected".

    how to have an network key protect my network


    I have the same modem and i got it configured just yesterday, i have it on always on mode now and i am looking forward to have some protection like a wpa or network key protect it everytime someone wants to connect to the network.

    Also i have a dialup on the desktop configuration with an ethernet card, and i have wireless enabled , to use on a laptop, now i want to eliminate the desktop completely and just keep the laptop on wireless...

    how can i do this...any suggestions..

    I have included the WPA setup for Linksys router in this thread:

    The WPA setting for your router may not be much different. Give it a try ...

    for dummies...

    Step 1:
    Download "backupsettings.conf" (see attached)
    Open "backupsettings.conf" in notepad.

    Do following changes in it.

    Find "" and change it to "<your username>"

    Find " " password="password" " and change it to " " password="<your password>" "

    Save and Exit.

    Step 2:

    Log in to your modem at with admin/admin.

    Click on "Management" on left hand side. Then click on "settings" and then on "update" .
    Now browse previously saved file "backupsettings.conf" on your PC and upload it using "Update Settings".

    Click on "Save/Reboot"

    Step 3:
    You may have to ensure that your password is accepted. I am not sure if this method will accept yor password.
    So just to make sure re-enter the password again.

    Log in to your modem at with admin/admin.
    Click on "Advanced Setup"
    Click on first "Edit" button in the list. Which should be next to
    0/35 1 UBR BSNL_Dataone ppp_0_35_1 PPPoE Enabled Disabled Enabled

    now click "Next" twice.

    Reenter your broadband password at PPP Password.
    Ensure your user name is correct.

    again click "Next" twice.

    and then "Save"

    Click on "Management" and then "Save/Reboot" on the left side.

    Forgot to attach the file.

    Save this file as backupsettings.conf

    (change the extension to .conf from .txt).

    Please note with this configuration I have added WLAN password as "AAAAAAAAAA"

    i am facing the same problem as Sarath (Kingfisher11111)....WiFi connects fine but eth cable does not and get the nesg "phone line is busy"...line man says some server issue but i never will belv them....any ideas???

    you can reset the modem by taking a match stick or safety pin and putting it inside the hole which is there in your modem.. hold the stick or pin for atleast 20 seconds.. when your modem is on...this will reset the modem
    @abhayk - since you are saying wifi works fine.. i guess you are using a laptop... so is the laptop dialing the internet? or does your internet work as soon as you switch on the modem!!!

    Hi i do know how to reset the modem but then that will take away the configuration i have done after which my WiFi is working like editing the settings in WAN config ( i can do this after reset) but the thing is after i edit'ed WAN settings under Advanced Setup tab this problem with LAN started to happed "phone line is busy"

    on my laptop it connects automatically, no dialing. Also, i think i am sure if i reset my modem it will work :)

    it means you are using pppoe mode in which as soon as modem is on you are connected.if after this you try to dial using windows from some other computer you will get the "phone line is busy" error.

    once your modem is set to ppoe mode you DONT have to dial on your laptop or computer!!!
  14. abhayk

    abhayk New Member

    Yes it is set to pppoe mode, can you elaborate more on what you mean by saying that " would not have to dial on my laptop or computer" ?? as per my understanding Wifi there is no dial up as in how i connect with my laptop....but in case of desktop i would have to connect to it using connection profile....
  15. superprash2003

    superprash2003 New Member

    no you dont need to dial even from your computer.. just connect to the LAN port of the computer!!

    hi all

    i have a weird problem

    i am unable to log into the UT Starcom router when i am connected thru LAN... I can do it when i connect to the wireless network...weird eh??

    but here's the kicker...

    i decided that i wanted to secure the wifi network, so i logged in and selected some wpa-psk2 ir something and entered what i thought was the security code..


    got d/ the network says security i'm like woohoo..

    i entered the same code and it says some ascii/hexadecimal stuff..

    now i cant log into the wifi network...

    and as a result, since i log in anyway on the LAN, i cant even get into the router to disable security..

    i tried to locate the reset button, but could not...

    please someone help me

    ok all done...i can breathe easy..

    i found the reset button...

    it's obviously on the bottom side of the router, but in the front right corner, under the wlan LED..

    the bottom side has all squareish spaces, but there is one round one on the side, out of alignment...

    happy resetting :)

    now ofcourse the net is not working (i'm piggybacking :) lol ) so i cant check if i can access the router through LAN..

    will keep you guys posted
