i have taken BSNL dataone connection home500 plan ( 256 kbps, 1 g.b download),
the mistake i did was to buy my own modem.
i bought a utstar-300r modem,
i have searched hard to get the settings on the net, since the BSNL people
couldn't help with the modem.
i have set the modem to
1) routing mode,
2) vpi = 0, vci = 35,
3) commit and reboot.
then, the home screen of 192.168.1.1 came, it showed
dsl status: startuphandshake,
i have waited for hours for that to glow green,
nothing came to my help. so kept it aside and called the
BSNL techincal people on phone, asked for the settings,
they said everything was fine from my side, and from their side,
and they couldn't help me until i buy a modem from them,
i have waited for a month, and in the process, it connected very rarely but for
less than 10 secs.
they have already sent me the bill which i don't think is fair, as
they said the billing will start from the moment i log on to the net.
