Hi Friends,
Continuing with my quest to connect using Triband. I FINALLY got my Triband ADSL Modem. Now here is the progress in Timeline format.

3:15: Lineman comes to fixthe modem. Like I said in my previous mail http://broadbandforum.in/index.php?showtopic=2290 titled "No triband connection even after one month", The lineman wanted me to fork money for nothing and he says "Sahab, Nay Wiring karna padenga paisa...."

Around 4:00-4:30: My connection is setup, BUT I am not able to connect to the Web. I tried on Windows XP assuming it wud be simplest to get started on then wud do it myself on Linux. The Lineman obviously knew nothing about Computers. I asked him is the account activiated from Prabhadevi Main Center He replied "Pata Nahi, hum to sirf line lagate hai yeh kamputer bamputer hamko malum nahi".

No matter hom much I try, I just cannot connect my PC to the router. Just for ur info. The power light on the modem is stable, Status is blinking, ADSL, Ethernet is also Stable. I field compliant on 1504 twice said someone will get back but noone did.

Around 7:00: Got an idea, maybe DHCP Client is not active. I started it and got connection to Router. IPConfig says eth0 has so and so IP, Lease Start time etc etc.

Wow, that means I should be able to surf. But wait how can I be so lucky. I am still unable to get online though all lights on modem are proper.

Now my question is, unlike the DLink claim on their Modem box for Plug and play connectivity, Do we have to run some Setup etc for going online?

What could be the problem. What are the setting required for Mumbai. Now that I have come uptil here. Please help me jump the last leap to Nirvana.

I have tried setting my username/password in modem to my telno and CA no. I also tried running the setup wizard and selected connection type PPPoe/PPPoA etc. But still no vain.

My second query is My firmware on the modem is V2.00B01T01.DI.20050121. Is this the latest Firmware with issues fixed. Should I return my hard earned modem to ask for some different one.

Please guide.

Yahooooooooooo!!!!!!!! Dude u know what. My luck took a tumble today as everyday and guess what happened. For one week I am waiting for Triband to work(Got modem on monday). Today morning, my modem conked off :angry: I called up 1504 and was in queue forever. Called up many other phone nos given to me but no avail. Got very angry and went to MTNL with my modem. I don't remember who but someone on this forum had advised talking to MTNL guys firmly in such cases and phones won't help. Did the same and got a new modem. The modem is currently not configured properly it is currently showing PVC as pvc1, ATM section on Status tab shows connection type as "bridged" and has no IP Addresses in any but Status is shown as Connected. If I change to pvc0 then ATM on the Status tab shows connection type "pppoe", but status as disconnected. Logs show PAP authentication failed, disconnecting, invalid PPPoe packet received blah blah. In both cases(bridged, pppoe), no internet access
Ok now here was the Blessing in Disguise. The new modem is "of the same firmware version u mentioned"!!!!!!!!!! The label below says "Firmware Updated on 30th May 2005" and the version is V2.00B01T01.ML.20050530 Hurray :) Lots of good settings are there in it. But still unable to connect :(. All lights show as proper but the Web Interface shows no IP Address. Least I care only if I can connect o the web. But the search is still on. If anyone or their engineer friends remembers some "Jadui (Magical)" setting please do let me know.

WooooooooooooHooooooooooooooooooo!!! Finally managed to get my Triband account activated. Today I personally went to meet the DGM since these people were not helping me go online for the past 2 weeks since modem was installed. Due to some problem in MTNL, these crooks lost my Workorder and each dept. was putting blame on the other that they have already sent it to the other dept etc. I was persistent and thus got them create the account for me NOW. I verified by logging in via Modem at their place. Works!. Checked register.mtnl.net.in and shows the details.
Hope it works at home too :)

Thanks everyone who helped me(Directly/Indirectly) in these 2 months by guiding me.

Thanks.
PS: Do not log in tonight on ur Triband from today. You all know why :)
