uh...what is the problem? Just connect it to your comp using cat5 wire. Ofcourse you will need a NIC in the computer first! Then you can use web based admin panel to login / logoff and set other prefs ;)

There is nothing to elaborate. Just get a cross over LAN cable with both sides crimped. Get a NIC and plugin one end of the wire into your comp and the other end in the router / modem. Then access the router using its IP from IE / Mozilla Firefox. Set your prefs and start using it!

Duh! How should I be? I thought it was an ADSL modem! :confused: Why did you post it in "Airtel Broadband" forum? Try http://www.linmodems.com They might have a driver for your modem. Personally, dump that piece of shit! Use a REAL modem (a.k.a. Hardware modem).

Thanks Maxie!

Btw from the pages of this forum, it seems I should shift to Beetel 220 BX. However, I had a word with an Airtel Engineer and he claims that this particular modem creates a lot of problems like repeated Login auth problems or disconnections and similiar. Requesting clarification from my fellow 220 BX users plz.

Regards,

Dhum.
