Hi Richie
As far as I know, it is not possible to connect ADSL with an input from another Modem, in this case it is ONT.
I too have FTTH connection, took it 18 months back, that time I was asked to by wireless router (Without Modem), first I purchased Dlink, somehow it did not work for me and for my friend too. Now we are using Cisco without any issues, for some Netgear is also working fine.
By the way in which area you are using FTTH, since 3 months their service is good, anyways FTTH is best in Vizag.

Yeah, I just got BSNL FTTH MODEM ONT-404i.
I bought a D-Link DIR-600M and its been 2 days since, there is no possible way to get the router to work.
I connect both the PC and the FTTH modem to the router, configured it @ 192.168.0.1, alas no dice...
Please, someone... HELP!!

It is very simple. Do the following steps, in order to use your NETGEAR ADSL2+ Modem + WiFi Router for your FIBRE connection.

1. First switch off your FIBRE modem.
2. Switch on your ADSL2+ ROUTER (NETGEAR or other)
3. Connect your computer through RJ45 network cable from Ethernet 1
(i.e. first port - as number mentioned in your router)
4. then login into - router
(i.e. http://192.168.0.1 or whatever default provided by router company)
5 Go to "Advanced" tab --- connection settings (of your WIFI Router / NETGEAR )
There you can find "LAN Settings"
6. LAN - Disable DHCP Server. (i.e. DHCP Server Off).
7. Save & Exit
8. RJ45 connection CABLE from AONT modem to your NETGEAR -- RJ45 (Ethernet 1 & not other Ethernet ports)

Other WIRELESS settings - same as whatever you have already. Then just restart - your NETGEAR & swtich on your FIBRE.

Your WIFI is enabled.

Hi Guys,

I bought BSNL FTTH (AONT 100C modem) and have ADSL Netgear N150 already. I am trying to use ADSL as the wireless router.

I am trying to connect the BSNL modem to ADSL with DHCP and NAT disabled mode. However, I am not able to successfully connect as it shows only limited connectivity.

I have "IP automatically set" option on WLAN in my computer.

I suppose this is some IP config problem. I am not able to find the default gateway of the BSNL AONT modem. I am not able to access the modem through 192.168.1.251 (which is the default in most cases). I guess it is in bridge mode.

When I connect RJ45 cable directly to the computer and access "ipconfig", it has the following details for the connection:
DHCP enabled: NO
IPV4 Address: 117.247.116.36 (Preferred)
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.255
Default gateway: 0.0.0.0
DNS server: 218.248.233.2

Can someone please help if you think you have a solution.

Thank you.

Hi Richie,
from where did you buy the ONT Modem? From BSNL or some other store?
if other store please tell me the price because BSNL charging INR 12K for ONT and 150 rupees per month rental if taken as rent.
