Apart from the superficial difference in the LED button, can anyone inform me what the difference is between UT-300R and UT-300R2 modems? I could not get any reference to the later one on the internet. Now BSNL is giving the R2 modem in the eastern region and I want to know what I am losing by having the earlier version, as I intend to purchase the modem outright. The spec sheet of the UT-300R modem is available at http://www.utstar.com/Solutions/Document_L.../SS_UT300RA.pdf . Can anyone give me a broad comparison of the details? Also, does the R2 modem support ADSL 2+ technology by any chance?

sitardivine owns the R2 modem. there should not be much diff. betn. the two. i think they have changed the button layout, look and a bit of firmware upgrade and made it look like a newly launched product...

A buggy one for that matter.In my 300R2 box, I tried configuring it to dial automatically, from the modem.No use, it doesn't even tell me that there is an error. :( I probably found another interesting bug. Posting in a separate thread. ;)

That's why I didn't go for those cheap utstar/huwaei modems from BSNL...Bought my own D-Link DSL-502T and am a very happy user till date ! :lol:

Thanks for the info. In case my modem which has been purchased from BSNL collapses then I can buy the D Link one from Mr Vikas. As also friends in those exchnages which dont have Modem to sell but only for rent, can buy the modem from D link now after I email them the details.

Here's how you enable the dialer for PPPoE in the UT 300r2. In the web interface, go to the Setup menu and delete all the connections you see there EXCEPT the pvc_0_35. Select the pvc_0_35 connection and modify the Type option on the right side of the screen to PPPoE. Enter in your user id and password. Now go to the Tool menu, choose System Commands and select Save All. After this, choose the Restart button. Once the modem restarts, the dialer should automatically connect to the internet and the PPPoE led should be green.
