    try this changes

    Modem must be connected to the pc,and the lan card is to be configured with the ipaddress 192.168.1.- ,since the default ip address of the huawei is,make the ipaddress of the nic as say for eg.

    try type in browser ie or firefox ,

    you will be prompted to a login page,enter as

    password :admin

    go inside as you said the connection is bsnl,so the protocol pppoe is activated,inside the settings check connection settings ,make it as automatic,
    and save changes , and restart the modem


    when ever you switch on the modem it will dial automatically

    Hope fully it will help you
  4. Pls tell the overall settings of the MT841 HAUEWI Modem (from first to last)

    ^ Did you enable DNS entries in the modem ?
    primary dns address :
    secondary dns address :

    and select always on for Max Idle Time

    setting changes should be saved in modem
    after changing any values in the modem ;
    then restart modem ...
  8. it set correct values for DSN.where i can set Max Time property

    ^ :eek:oops: Max Idle Time setting is not in MT 841 ...

    Links are given to configure MT841 instead of
    copying & pasting the same setup information .

    If the instructions are followed correctly and still you
    face disconnection problems then there might be a
    problem with your phone cable . And you have to give
    a written complaint at the Local BSNL Exchange .

    Can you connect to Internet with MT841 ? ( Is this the wireless model ? do you have the wifi card for this ?
    How you connect "Dialer" or "Always On" ?
    How many computers you intend to use . Any LAP top wth Wireless Lan card?
    Will update later on your feedback.

    I connect to Internet from my desktop using the SmartAX MT841 modem. It is not wireless. I want to connect my laptop using the Linksys WRT54G wireless router through the MT841 modem.

    firstly ensure that your are in ppoe mode(always on) .. if thats the case, then connect a cable from LAN port of modem to LAN port of wifi router.. disable DHCP in the wifi router and it should work..
