    Did you scroll the AUTO mode ?
    What other Options available ?
    Try this
    192.168.1.1/main.html
    Do you get extra menu options ?
    Now type 192.168.1.1/look.html
    Copy/Paste the data here ( ignore fonts )
    to check your Firmware version.

    I will post later a FW downgrade application ( automatic via command window )

    Test stability menu items etc.
    and then access the modem page to upgrade to latest available in WIKI here.

    Well, you have successfully bricked your modem. I think it's dead forever. Now if you could somehow reflash the firmware, your modem could breathe again. Let me know if you're successful in doing so. I have 2 BSNL bricked modems lying around at my place. I'm thinking of selling them in scrap if reflashing firmware ain't possible.

    1.Confirm , whether you can access 192.168.1.1 admin PW password .
    As the Upgrade tool is for Airtel ISP PW could be password.

    2. What was the message at the end of command prompt upgrade
    process ?
    3.
    Or Run the FW again.

    You might need access to an external universal flasher. This would entail opening the modem, desolder the flash rom, connect it to the universal flasher and then flash with the correct firmware. And then resolder the flash rom back to your modem pcb.This process can be done by BIOS IC repair guys who have access to the universal flasher (It's an expensive machine for hobbyist use). Do check out people in your area who repair motherboards and ask if they have access to one.This could be your only respite if the modem is working but doesn't allow access to 192.168.1.1. One more reason why newbies shouldn't venture out into modding, because they usually cannot put back things in order in case they screw up!

    Hi,
    I'm also facing the same problem what supernova is experiencing...

    I have noticed that the browsers displays "Page cannot be displayed" some times,
    i thought of upgrade the firmware as it was 3 years old Beetel 220 BX1 modem.
    Now I'm having BSNL so thought that it is not so compatible, let me upgrade.
    I used the Beetelupdradetool.

    It extracted well and logged in to the model copied the flash and displayed message "Firmware upgrade successful, please wait while modem reboots...
    I waited for 10~15~20 min..but it did not come up...
    press ctrl+c it asked "Terminate Job (Y/N)?...i said N
    but it did not resume and the cmd window got closed automatically.
    after this again i waited for about 10min...then i power cycle the modem...
    Now.....
    1. Modem LED status
    Power-ON
    ADSL-ON (without cable)
    DATA-OFF
    PC/USB-BLINK

    2. DHCP not working
    3. Even with Manual IP, unable to ping 192.168.1.1
    4. No Web access / Telnet

    Anybody have solution for this issue :huh:

    Good News!!!
    I cracked the problem...:thumb:
    I have upgraded firmware again with latest...

    Board ID: 96338L-2M-8M
    Software Version: 3.12L.01.A2pB023k.d20k_rc2
    Bootloader (CFE) Version: 1.0.37-0.7
    I made a electronic serial2TTL circuit to access the modem via serial interface.


    While booting it stuck in selecting right Board id, i have selected "96338L-2M-8M" and it is started booting with SW ver 3.0
    so, I upgraded EW thro GUI 3.12

    If anybody need help, please PM
