Ok. Im in Delhi & i got TRiB 590NU plan. Earlier had ADSL 128Kbps 750Mb Limit-wala Plan.
Issues that im having:

1) It disconnects. A lot. Almost in every session!! Dunno y it happens.. Earlier i used LAN for connectin Router & PC. Was havin this prob so connected thro USB. but prob persists!! Any ideas ppl?? ( System format done b4 changeover)

2) In d Router Configuration page, there's a " Obtain Lease for" Option. Its set at 3600Secs. Shud i change it to longer?? Tho i hav noticed that d Lease is automatically renewed for another hr...

3) Wat d hell is wrong wid MTNL's usage billing ??! c d attahced screenshot!
My pop's gonna kill me if he sees d 9500 Rs. bill !

there's not much to worry dude...u can ignore that amount...even MTNL ppl don't have any idea what exactly that is...i tried to enquire, but no help...u're safe till u're "ADSL MB" is "not zero" and if u don't do much once it is "zero"...if u've done heavy downloading after it's been "zero" in the past, well, then i can't say much...regarding ur first point, i'll always suggest u to use "ethernet" port than USB...secondly, i don't have my router accessible right now, so can't say much...but as far i can recall, there's some option like "always connected"...select that and see if there's any change...

Thx for d reply dude! That "always connected" option is already selected in my router..
Im sticking to USB for now coz it lets me know d Data Usage details as "bytes sent/recd" instead of "packets sent/recd." !!

Also, one more thing.. i just cant access some sites, no matter wat! the sites are:

www.filemirrors.com
www.thinkdigit.com

I always get timed out on these.. while other sites open up normally..!

yes me too, I was not able to even open eBay at times but crrently able to open it,
also www.zdnetindia.com this one isn't opening the list can be long though.
My local friends using other internet connection (one is using Tata Indicom and other one using Airtel) are able to open them all.

Moreover even on complaining 3 times to their CC I got no satisfactory answer, this really hurts... perhaps there is no one who can help we MTNL users.
