Hi essbebe,
I am unable to open some sites like yahoo,gmail,hotmail,naukri&google (upto now).I tried changing MTU from 1500 to 1492&1454..still my problem didn't get fixed.I also tried giving static IP & DNS(which are recommended by you).I also tried changing my modem..still the problem persists.disabling AV & firewall... all possible troubleshootings I have done still no use....Actually I want to know what is "opendns"..? how we will do that..? even my google is not working to google it...Will reinstalling my OS will fix the problem?

/members/khanna16/ Modem UT300R2U
Mention your modem model . see below
1Check DNS page and enter Opendns given below.
Start/Network/LAN/properties/TCP IP
2check Obtain IP address automatically.
3In DNS enter 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222
( you can enter BSNL DNS as alternate ).
Para Two :
PPP adapter. Same: TCP/IP properties Advanced look under WINS
select check/enable Default for Netbios over IP.
Subnet mask 255.255.255.255 doubtful. How you entered it ? I think end entry is 254.
Default Gateway usually the IP address of modem viz 192.168.1.1 and Ip address will be different . say 192.168.1.11 etc ( depending on the range you have entered in modem/router)

REF: calcuttatelephones.com/dataoneinstall/menu.html Select your modem.
There are two models.

I'm having the same problem. Sites like bwt and wikipedia and this site don't open, but when I reboot the router I'll be able to access the above sites, but not others before the reboot and the same vice versa when I reboot again. I've checked if I get the same problem on another computer and another account and it's the same. Something's really screwed with bsnl...

Hi folks,

My modem is UTStar 300R (Black). How can I set MTU in bridge mode? MTU=1490 works for me well on Router mode. In Router mode I used to set MTU in WAN->ppp-> Add (here I used to specify MTU, along with uid/pwd). But this steps aren't required in bridge mode.

Also, for the last few years my modem was always configured in router mode (as per this doc). But this days router mode don't work at all. Only Bridge mode works...really weird.

Thanks.
