Strange!!! I think only BSNL cc can help you. Get the modem changed, I had some trouble with mine and I got it exchanged.

First Of all please be more detailed about the modem.Furthermore be more specific about your location ie the place where you stay.The reason i ask your modem details is a fact that if its a BSNL modem, there is a good chance that it might be faulty. Afterall its all the chinese junk that gets dumped in India.Mention the following in special:Modem type and modelLan card(Inbuilt or external) Answer us these and we might be able to help.

Well sir,honestly speaking i have to give your modem the benefit of doubt.Because i just cant point out the finger at it over the net,yet i would like to just point out the fact that High speed internet speeds put quite a load on the modem.Its always recommended to either go behind a powerful router or at least class 3 modem.But as i said above...i really am not sure of the problem and i really wouldnt want to screwup ur problem to more devastating extents.

MT880 even i had disconnection problems with that one. I think the modem is faulty. Do not go for another MT880 go for MT882 instead. I got my MT880 replaced by MT882. The guys in my exchange told me that people using MT880 were complaining the most about disconnection issues. btw MT880 is not a type 1 modem. Type one should also have a USB connectivity, MT880 does not. Another reason I got my modem replaced by MT882.

Then an hit and trial explanation of ur problem could be a case of faulty supply of modems to the BSNL in your area.Try talkin with another guy around your location who might be having a bsnl connection and their modem.If he is facing the same problem then its a fault at BSNL's end.If he is not, then i guess you have to talk to a professional.
