Hi,I am about to get a DataOne connection with the Type IV modem and I want to share it with 4 other people in my block. So I have some questions:(1) The Type IV modem's model name is MT841, right? Is the plugged WiFi card 11b or 11g compl.?(2) Anyone knows if the modem supports multiple WiFi users? Or just one user? (question might be stupid)(3) Anyone has experience with the range of the WiFi modem? what about indoor with appr. 3 walls between router and pc?(4) Does BSNL allow multiple users on home plans?(5) Is there a way to log the internet usage (Up/Download, usage time/date) per IP adress within the network. *rtfm..i know*Thanks for any help!cheers,Martin

No 1. depends on what card u are given (it is an external card).There just might be a possibility that u dont get the card (Happened with many).

No. 2 is a go

No.3 Almost every one has droped conec. and speed droping and with three walls in b/w i doubt its ability.I use it in the open with out any thing in b/w. Iget around 25 MbPS @ 10Mtrs (Max i ve been,go further and i m outside on the road).

No.4 Modems are NAT devices BSNL wont have a clue on what ur doing with ur connection Share it with the entire city.

No.5 You want to monitor data transfers beyond the modem but that will not be possible b cos even you system will be beyond the modem.The data others use doesnt even come neard ur sys so u cant monitor it


The only way to do it is bring in the meter b/w the useage and the modem.So u need to put in a monitor after the modem

BSNL does allow multiple logins at the same time.

Really?? Is the WiFi card a 802.11b or g? Stinky BSNL...with a proper WiFi router one should have at least 25m indoor. *beingpissedof*
About monitoring:

Yes, I know. But are there generally some statistic features in the router panel? I am asking because I share the connection with 4 other people and need this in case we exceed the Up/Download limit. A server between the modem and the computers would be cool, but this would be a cannonball on a fly in my case.

I know, I know...I just don't want any surprises from BSNL, cause they won't be nice ones, I guess.

Well, thanks for your post, you helped me a lot!

Cheers,

Martin

For monitoring MT 841 does not provide you with any assistance.it ont even blok trafic to a specific ip (tried it).It does not log trafic requests and will not log any trafic details all it logs is amount of data trnsfer on the ADSL,LAN,& USB line (in packets).Which is reste when pwer is switched of.To check the total Data trnfer you can use the bsnl portal and do it but individual useage would be ?????????
