How to Configure beetel wifi(ADSL2+Router) to use tikona(wiMax)


After turned down two time by Airtel, for new broadband connection. I opted for tikona, without wireless router. As, I had beetel ADSL2 + wifi router with me, from my last airtel connection. I thought of using it. It turned out to be real easy thing to do. Only 4 steps and wifi setup was done.

1. See the under of the router, you will find a reset mark, just insert and press button, to reset your router to default factory settings.
-or-
1. Open 192.168.1.1 (link to acess, settings page of router), and from there also you can restore to factory settings. I prefer first option as it was fast.

2. After resetting the router to factory settings, open the link 192.168.1.1 to configure it.

3. Click on “Interface Setup -> Internet -> Encapsulation -> ISP -> Bridge Mode.”

4. Now to configure for wifi acess, select “Interface Setup -> LAN -> DHCP -> Disabled”. Or else you can use, router through LAN (Didn’t tested it for more then one system in LAN, as I had only one lappy).

5. Next step is to configure router to be secure, password setting, mac association etc. Read this comment by Rajat Gupta, it tells you more about mac address and it’s coloning, Thank you Rajat for it! :) Never thought that, tikona can use MAC to keep system count.. :D

6. Final and important step is to restart the router for changes to take place.

Hope, it was quite helpful to you all. And i think, you will be able to use these steps to configure your ADSL wifi router with any ISp

    Hi Buddy,

    I tried this however unable to connect. can you help ? I am fed up with this and there is no one from Tikona to help me. I would appreciate your help if you can guide me on this post or by calling +91-9999975277. Else send me your mobile on my email – gupta.kosh@gmail.com.

    Thanks

  2. dude i also have a same modem with me but the problem is with port as beetel router works on small port and the modem with tikona has big port any solution dude

  3. enitinkumar says:

    @Abhishek.. My airtel modem is (450TC1 ADSL2+Router), what I did is.. from tikona machine.. I connected the lan out into one of the lan ports in the modem. And that worked for me.. And my lappy to other lan port on my modem.

  4. enitinkumar says:

    @Kaushal … sorry for late reply man!! I didn’t noticed your comment before. You still facing the problem?? if yes, then we can try to find out the solution.

  5. hryata says:

    can you show me the image of the router cable connected to the modem..??our cable have 8teeth /cable points in one pin…

    • enitinkumar says:

      I have added the images, what I have done…
      From tikona adapter, LAN port Connected LAN port on my airtel wireless modem.

      • hryata says:

        ive seen the images thank you……can you tell me the details of configuring this modem. We have been connecting these pins/ports,but the internet signal in the modem has not been flash,and cannot browsed….??we do not know how to configure….

      • enitinkumar says:

        internet signal in the modem won’t flash, coz, it’s ADSL modem, and cheks for DSL signla.. which is not present.. that’s why we are just converting it to a router… only as connection between tikona and system.

  6. hryata says:

    we have connected bt it requires username and password……..??

  7. can u please help me ut with the wireless part and how to configure the mac add etc…

    • enitinkumar says:

      For wireless MAC address filter : enter the mac addresses of the devices you want to connect through wifi, to know mac address.

      1. In windows on the command prompt enter command : ipconfig /all
      this will give output something like this :

      Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

      Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
      Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
      Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter
      Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-00-00-00-00-00
      DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
      Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes

      Enter the physical address without ‘-’ in the MAC Address in the way it is mentioned.

      2. For Linux, you can run command : ifconfig, to get MAC or Physical Address.

      3. For phones, look for mac address in wifi settings.

  8. Nirav says:

    Good to know this…. I will try it today for my ADSL router and will let you know.

  9. Amit Kumar says:

  10. Rahul Mathur says:

    Hi Nitin, I have Beam connection and Beetel 450 TC1 . Please tell what should I do so that I can use the same beetel device as router only?

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Rahul, what ever I have configured is on the side of wireless router only (Beetel 450 TC1), so you can try the step and, then try connecting it to your Beam connection. Best of Luck!!

      • Rahul Mathur says:

        But same result “No Internet Access”… Can you please help me ?

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi, if you are able to connect to the wifi router after following the above mentioned steps, then you have followed the correct steps. And configured it right. And that’s what was my aim while configuring beetel router, just to provide wireless connection to my devices, for connecting to internet from tikona side, nothing changed for me..
      Now, if beam has some issues with it, like it doesn’t recognizes any other devices, other then you registered pc mac id, or something. I don’t have much

  11. Kishore says:

    Hi Nithin,

    How to configure the Beetle 450TC1 ADSL2+Router for both desktop and laptop at a time. i followed your steps and configured,But it is working for either desktop or laptop at a time.could you please help me to connect both desktop and laptop at a time.

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Kishore,
      Can you elaborate your problem more?
      because, with my tikona service I am allowed to access internet from two system at a time, after logging in through tikona portal. But, there is no limit to connection to the wifi router, I have connected my phone, 2 laptops, ps3(both wifi or via lan) all at the same time, with the present configurations.
      So, please check if the problem is with the service provider that it allows only 1 system to be connected to internet.

  12. arthaf says:

    HI
    Noble deed you are doing Dude.. Big respect… I could not utlize my 450TC1 ADSL2+ Router for a long time since I got a new Tikona number. after following the steps you said connecting via lan cable after resetting the router I opened the link at http://192.168.1.1/ it asks for username and password.. I dont know how to get past this I tried Admin Admin, Admin Password User Pass combo .. to no avail… Please Help me ….

  13. enitinkumar says:

    Hi Arthaf,
    Thanks for your nice words.. :) I just shared my experience, and it’s great to see it’s kind of useful to many!
    try username : “admin” and password : “password” , after resetting this is the password for me!

  14. arthaf says:

    Password worked like a breeze… after I pressed the reset button for 15 secs….. then followed all the steps you mentioned…. But now it asks for a network security key . I have no clue what it is..

    • enitinkumar says:

      arthaf, I think it’s asking for network security key when you are trying to connect to the wifi network, then it’s asking for the WEP Key#1 mentioned like this in the http://enitinkumar.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/wireless.png pic.. check what you have entered there.. and if you want to change it.. you need to disconnect from tikona.. restart your router and then again login to it using lan cable and open 192.168.1.1 again and configure that password. Hope this helps you!

  15. arthaf says:

    :( now am not able to connect the router via lan and connect to 192.168.1.1… the browser does not show anything. not able to connect. . . . Help

    • enitinkumar says:

      try removing tikona lan cable from the router, then again restart the router, this time it won’t take ip address from tikona, and you will be able to access 192.168.1.1.. :) and if this too doesn’t work, just start from beginning.. means.. from resetting your router!

  16. arthaf says:

    Dear Nitin,
    My WIFI is ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable…. :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
    Cant thank you enough for having helped me out. Had almost dumped the router which I was so used to due to the connection change after the tikona and airtel guys dint bother to help.
    Like you said I restarted the process just like you had advised. Every step you described was crystal clear and worked so well. You are a true savior.
    Thank God for having sent people like you to us mortals.

  18. rraiidensh says:

    Hey Nitin,
    I have got another connection(spectranet) not Tikona, but again is through LAN. Here I got a static IP, subnet mask,gateway and a DNS server. Could you tell me where exactly should I put those values, while configuring the router, so that I can use my beetle adsl router to good use?

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi,
      Can you let me know ;
      1. What steps you have tried??
      2. And after entering values of static IP, subnet mask etc, do you still need to sign in?

      • rraiidensh says:

        Hi NItin,
        I tried giving IP, subnet mask, dhcp(i gave it same as dns) and dns in the LAN section.
        Still no change.
        I tried your way of disabling dhcp also with no benefit.
        I tried putting the values of IP etc. in “internet” tab. that too did not work.

        My connection when connected directly to the comp via lan port needs me to change the ip, gateway, subnet masks of lan adapter and further I need to login to spectranet page which will be auto directed when i type any link in browser.

      • rraiidensh says:

        While changing the router IPs, I am not able to get that login prompt in browser, but it just says no internet

      • enitinkumar says:

        Hi ,
        I think disabling dhcp and bridge mode, should have worked in your case too. But, if it didn’t then sorry man, I don’t know what else to do, that can work!
        Other things like configuring it with static IP address won’t work, as it requires you to sign in from portal. I don’t remember properly, but I think with the case of airtel we used to save airtel’s username and password to automatically sign in, may be you can try it the airtel way, reset your router and send static IP, and username password there.
        Just try once more disabling dhcp + bridge mode + configure your system with static IP etc values given to you. But I feel it won’t be of much help as at a time only one system can have that IP. No multiple systems won’t be supported.

  19. Rajat Gupta says:

    Dear Nitin,
    Thanks a lot for the information above. After following the steps , i am able to use tikona connection through wi fi and LAN but there is one problem, every device which i use to connect through my modem ask for login information of tikona and i can’t use internet on more than two devices at a time. One thing more does mac filtering ( under WAN) help in anyway except protection ? Can you please help ????

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Rajat,
      That’s the problem with tikona, I too have to sign in from every system, and max two is supported so have to logout from one to connect to some other.. :(
      Yes, you are right MAC filtering is only for protection, nothing else.

  20. Rajat Gupta says:

    Thanks a lot Nitin !!!
    But i have a good news…you can connect more than two device using tikona and TC450. GO to your network connection in Control Panel.
    Now right click the LAN or WAN connection through which you are connected.
    Now go to Properties> configure > Advanced > Network Address ( it may be by a different name in some cases) .
    Enter the same MAC address (12 digits- B8-xx-xx-xx-xx-EC) in all your devises like this. N you are all set !!!!
    Log in from as many Laptops or Desktops as you like just change your MAC address like this.
    Note : you can get the MAC add of your device by going to command prompt and enter the command :
    ipconfig/all
    or
    getmac

    Enjoy Everyone !!!!!
    By the way this is called MAC cloning.

    • enitinkumar says:

      Thank you Rajat, never thought tikona might be using mac address!! will try it.. :)

    • AnkurGoyal says:

      Hi Rajat,
      I really appreciate ur effort and i guess,i am having the same trouble so need ur help.
      As u know that tikona is using MAC address for filtering and with my plan at max 3 device can login simultaneously .
      i was already using 3 laptops but need to connect the 4th one also. so i tried to use MAC cloning of the 4th one with one of the laptop. cloning was successful but not able to access the net on both the systems simultaneously.
      1. both systems are taking the same ip after cloning
      2. both systems are taking different dhcp server address.
      when i connect with cloned system,proving the mother system not connect,net is accessible.
      but when i connect mother system,cloned system starts reacting otherwise means net is
      unaccessible.

      Awaiting ur kind response.
      ##thanx in advance.

      • Gaurav Gupta says:

        You can statically assigned IP to your systems. Since you have upper limit of 3 Mac address, use 2 as normal and clone one for all desktops which are supposed to be connected with same network.

    • Manoj says:

      Hi Rajat,

      I am stuck with MAC cloning part. I have already mapped 2 pcs and 1 laptop mapped to Tikona. Now I configured router and trying to access the same laptop from wifi but it is giving me mac connections not more allowed.

      Can you please help me here in mac cloning. I tried giving my laptop mac ip to the WAN connection network address but still getting the same issue.

      Kindly help me in MAC cloning part.

      Thanks in advance,
      Manoj Kumar

      default username and password for the router is admin and password respectively, I don’t think it’s something different!

    • Rajat Gupta says:

      did u reset the modem correctly. u hv to hold the reset button for 10-15 sec.

    Hi Nitin
    i have the same router Beetel 450 TC1-ADSL2. i want to make wifi connection with TIKONA ISP.
    initially i tried my own methods but failed then i saw your blog and start following your steps but not able to connect.i tried your steps 4-5 times from beginning.

    tikona customer care and beetel care both are not assisting me on this.
    i am using Dell-Latitude model laptop with windows-Xp service pack-2.

    can you please help.??
    After seeing above comments,my only hope is you.
    ## humble request.

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Ankur,
      surely would try to help you. can you tell me, where are you exactly failing in getting it done?

      • AnkurGoyal says:

        After following all your steps,i put in the tikona lan cable in lan-1 port(actually tried all the ports) . after all this i am able to connect to wifi with system getting the IP address.
        but not able to browse internet.
        i tried to open 1.254.254.254(tikona’s user home page to login) but not getting results but i am able to open 192.168.1.1 when connected to wifi.

      • enitinkumar says:

        After following the steps, you won’t be able to open 192.168.1.1. And system will get IP in series 1.x.x.x. Then only you will be able to login into tikona’s user home page. After configuring the router, don’t forget to restart it.

      • AnkurGoyal says:

        I tried this 10-12 times already but getting the IP address like 192.168.1.2
        any other method to set the desired ip and able to open tikona home page?

  28. Nisarg says:

    Hello Nitin.
    I am able to configure and get Tikona IP from Router, however I am not getting Ping response or for that matter open any website’s. Not even Tikona’s login page. I am running on windows 7

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Nisarg,

      Try connecting directly through the tikona lan wire, see the IP series, and check while connecting through wan too you get the same IP, if it’s so, then there should not be any problem while getting tikona login page. I use, windows 7, so didn’t configured it specially for tikona~!

  29. Randheer says:

    Hi Nitin,
    I have Airtel LAN connection and I wanted to make it wifi. I called Airtel and they said they dont provide wifi routers. So I bought Buffalo Airtstation router. Now I have Airtel modem and router. Now Airtel guys say that they cant configure Buffalo router. Please help I dont know how to configure this router.

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Randheer,

      Just connect the wifi router to the Lan port of the airtel modem. I don’t think you need to do anything extra!

      Airtel guys provide wifi routers too, but don’t go for it, as you will have to configure them again for any other ISP.

  30. Randheer says:

    bro cant configure it. It seems like I have to buy a new Beetel router and throw this Buffalo router.

  32. Arun says:

    I was able to proceed till disabling DHCP after that what we have to do to set MAC address. Because I am setting my laps WLAN Mac I’d there and it’s conn but not able to get tikona login page could someone pls help

    • enitinkumar says:

      Setting MAC address is not so important, if you want to keep your wifi more secure then only go for it, else not needed.
      Compare the IP addresses, in case when you directly connect the lan wire from tikona modem to your lappy, and when you connect through wifi. They should belong to same ip group. if that’s not the case, try again all the steps, and don’t forget to restart your wifi router.

      • ARUN says:

        thank you so much nithin i got the wifi on my laptop, I checked the IP on the LAN connection which was in the format 10.192.xx.x, and when trying with wifi is like 192.168.xx.xx, so i went inside the router page and after that i chaged router ip from 192.168.xx.xx to 10.192.xx.xx, after i am able to login and use wifi on my latop. but i am not able to do the same on my iphone and the other lap its giving the tikona log in page on the both but its telling on both authentication failed as number of maximum allowed of session reached… and also i am not able to access the beetle page using 192.168 nor 10.192. and what should be done in this case. if you could help me i would really be greatfull.

        Thank you once again for helping me to set up wifi atleast in one laptop

      • enitinkumar says:

        Hi Arun,

        Just confirm once, if tikona has given you access for one system or what? if it’s so, then you will have to try MAC cloning, though it didn’t worked for me, but you still can try.

        Other than that, I didn’t configured my router with any IP, I just selected dynamic IP, try it! not sure, but configuring IP from your side might be the problem.

    Today in afternoon i just ordered for Netgear router coz Tikona engineer said that the MTNL 450 TC1 router can’t be used as a WIFI router and will have to purchase a new WIFI router.

    I tried once from my end but failed then after a long time today I finally searched for best WIFI router and placed the order on Flipkart.com, still somewhere I was unsatisfied…. it was just where I googled and found your blog.

    I read your whole blog but unfortunately couldn’t try it out as I was in office and even didn’t cancelled the order from flipkart.com as I was little sceptical. Just now I came home and did step by step the way you have explained… I must say you are truly genius and like Amitabh says in kaun banega corepati “Gyaan Hi Appka Haq Dilaati Hai” which u had shown by proving all worn whoever said that 450TC1 WIFI+ADSL Router couldn’t be used in Tikona Broadband.

    Hat’s off buddy….. and appreciate your knowledge and moreover your kindness by sharing your knowledge with us.

    Thank You Once Again 

    Hi Nitin,
    Nice job by the way. its hard to find hack support on indian devices.
    i have the same prob as Arun.

    thank you so much nithin i got the wifi on my laptop, I checked the IP on the LAN connection which was in the format 10.192.xx.x, “”

    not able to connet the phone to wifi. tried cloning the mac. no luck.
    also i am not able to connect to the adsl 2 page. 192.168.1.1.
    checked the default gateway. gave a 10. series ip.

    i have connected the 450tc1 to another router (belkin). both routers are allowing access to the net.
    but not able to connect anything apart from 1 laptop.

    please advice.

    • enitinkumar says:

      Sorry Arun,
      I have posted, the problem I faced, and it’s resolution!! But, I didn’t faced the issue in connecting multiple devices. to my router, I can connect as many as I want. But, tikona has given me internet access for just two devices, so, other devices are just connected to wifi network!
      Didn’t faced, problem that you are mentioning, am also not very clear what went wrong at your end. So sorry! no idea on how to resolve it!

      • suraj says:

        looks like we have to clone the router mac to match the system. and enable the dhcp in the router and then we can connect multiple device.

  37. Abhay says:

    sir pls help i cannt get into the configuration for the givn ip address 192.168.1.1.. pls help…

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Abhay,

      what is the issue that you are facing? not able to access 192.168.1.1 ?? if it’s like then, then try resetting your modem, you need to press the button till all the lights on the modem don’t go off!
      Then, connect to the modem through lan/wifi you will will be able to access 192.168.1.1. And don’t forget to remove all other lan wires, except the one connected to the system through which you are trying to configure it.

      • Abhay says:

        it is showing that firefox cannt find server. when i connect the net via 3g dongle and then try to access the ip it prompt for username and password. and when i entered admin and password it promts again… pls sir help me out….

    • enitinkumar says:

      I am not sure, by 3g dongle, which IP you are trying to access.. :-o

      you need to access 192.168.1.1 for your router, and 3g dongle won’t be able to connect to it.. reset will work, once you reset, you will get 192.168.1.1 page. Try properly resetting your router.

  38. sami says:

    can we use th beetel router after all settings done to use wifi on mobile

    • enitinkumar says:

      yepp, it works for me.. :) bt, keep in mind, tikona has something device associated list too, first it allows you to connect through limited number of devices to internet at a time, like for me it’s just 2. Secondly, if you have tried to access internet through multiple devices, after some time it tells max limit reached for associated devices.

      No, idea about it Sunny! I some time too face this issue, internet goes for some time and automatically it comes back, through out the time am remaining connected to the wifi, it’s something to do with tikona only!

  44. Arunav says:

    Hello NItin,

    Good to see that your post helped people a lot !!

    I am also planning to take Tikona. What I do not understand is the fact that Tikona already provides us with a wireless connectivity which helps us to connect our devices (wireless-ly)

    So what is the use of configuring the Beetel 450TC1 to give wifi connectivity, when wireless connectivity is already provided by Tikona ?

    What I understand from your post is that you are using a Ethernet [LAN] cable, to connect Tikona’s modem’s Ethernet Port (as you have shown in figure) and to the Beetel’s Ethernet Port. This way you are getting the Internet connection on your Beetel Modem, which can then be used by other devices connecting to your Beetel Modem. Is this correct ?

    If yes, then I would say that this way you are just extending Tikona’s wireless connectivity.

    What I want is that, I don’t want to use Tikona’s Modem, as I have a Beetel Modem with me. So, I don’t want to purchase their modem, thus saving installation cost. Now, what is the way to configure my modem ?

    Remember, Tikona is not giving modem since I am not asking for it. So your diagram of LAN to LAN connection will not work.

    I would be really helpful if you can guide me on this.

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hello Arunav,

      Tikona gives both type of modem wireless and lan based, mine is lan based. And for wireless modem they ask for around 1.7k extra. But, from my previous connection I had beetel ADSL modem, so I wanted to use it, and succeeded in doing, so I shared my experience how I did that here.
      Am not extending tikona’s wireless connectivity, I just made my wired lan to wifi lan.. and this wireless lan is connected to tikona’s lan. Hope I made my point clear :)

      There will be a base installation cost, that you can’t avoid, only using your beetel modem you can save what they charge extra for their wifi modem which is not default package part. In the base installation, they will put a wireless receiver on the roof, and connect it to an adapter cum modem inside your home. Now, in the pic the modem you see which is connected to beetel modem, is the adapter that does both supplying power to the wireless receiver on the roof and also giving a lan based connection.

      The LAN to LAN connection will surely work, as they will give you a LAN connection to connect to your system, if they don’t then think how you will be able to access internet in your system. If you have planned to get tikona, then let them do there part, once their configurations are up. Then try the above mentioned step to get a wifi connectivity… :)

      • Arunav says:

        Oh… that was indeed an information for me. I was not aware that Wifi is not the default installation option for Tikona.

        Thanks NItin.. and thanks for quick reply too… !!
        I too have same modem as yours and will use the steps you mentioned to enable Wifi :-)

        Thanks !!

  45. akula2 says:

    Anyone tried/trying the same device with Beam?

    PC connects to Internet via Router (Bridge + DHCP disabled) as switch. IP config:

    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 183.82.xxx.xxx
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.192.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 183.x.xxx.x
    DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 183.x.xxx.x
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 123.xxx.xx.xx
    123.xxx.xx.xx
    Whereas on Laptop, I’m able to see and connect to Wireless SSID. But when I open any website, it says:

    “ADSL Modem link is down!”

    Laptop, IPconfig I see in this fashion:

    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.3
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
    DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
    192.168.1.1

    Is this because laptop can’t get DNS Servers? I don’t get what’s happening. I could only access the Internet from Laptop just for once. Next day, it’s gone. I could only connect to the SSID but no Internet!

    IMO, this device acting strange with Beam network.

    • Arunav says:

      Hi,

      The method which Nitin has given to us is generic and not bound for Tikona. This is what I believe. He has given us a way to make your Internet connection, which is wired over LAN, go Wireless [WiFi] by using the Wifi Modem of your choice.

      So, if Beam provides you with the Lan wire, just connect your Beam’s LAN wire to your own Wifi Modem’s Ethernet port and follow the steps NItin provided.. They are really helpful.

      And don’t forget to share the feedback.. :-)

      Thanks
      Arunav

      • akula2 says:

        I tried a lot since last week:

        #Beam fiber cable goes into Router’s LAN1 port (RJ-45)
        #From Router’s LAN2 port, Ethernet cable goes into PC (RJ-45)

        I tried a lot of settings. Only once I could able to access the internet on Laptop, also on PC. Of course, Beam doesn’t web authentication allow multiple logins – yet to test Mac address solution to over come this. What’s puzzling is Laptop connects to the SSID but no internet!

        Internet on PC works (bridge mode) fine but this isn’t not the priority. I’m looking to find a way to provide internet on my Moms laptop through my PC beam connection. So I need this Router to do the job. Previously with the same Router, we used to connect on multiple machines using Airtel broadband.

        Do I need to enable any service on Windows XP? I’m not really sure.

  46. Ankit says:

    Hi and thanks nitin kumar,it all worked like charm but i am only able to connect 2 devices at a time and not more than that. A solution would be appreciated.(Tikona engineer came to my house to fix my line, he said port forwarding might help but i did not get that ,of course he did not do it for me)

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Ankit,
      Sorry, I haven’t tried connecting more then 2 devices. and also I don’t have idea about port forwarding. I ll try sometime and if I find solution then would share here. If you come to find any solution, do share with us.

  47. Hi Nitin,
    I have a question for you.

    I am using Tata Photon+ with a TPLINK 3G/4G Wireless N Router TL-MR3220.
    I have a spare Binatone 4 Port ADSL2+ Router with Wi-Fi(DT850W – 150Mbps).
    The TPLINK WIFI-router is attached on 1st floor of my house and on the ground floor
    I am not getting good wifi signal. I am thinking of using the Binatone Router to
    extend the wifi to ground floor. The Binatone Router does not have a WAN port.

    Can we connect TPLINK and Binatone routers through a LAN cable and setup
    Binatone router to take input from TPLINK throuch LAN and act as a wifi
    router for ground floor?

    Is this possible? If so, what settings should be done.

    Thanks,
    Gaurav

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Gaurav,

      as I feel, you just want to use your Binatone ADSL2 router as a bridge. So, you can try the settings that I have done. Interface would be different. But, you should be just looking to configure your Binatone router in bridge mode, and also dhcp disabled.

    the wifi even works fine when i insert my office LAN cable where internet is available through a proxy address

    But it does not works at my home where i am using a cable net from Intech Broadband. ISP has provided me internet using 2 pair cable though a RJ45 connector. he has provided me an dialer which i am supposed to dial after inserting LAN cable. in my case wifi connects dialer dials ocer wifi but after getting msg of “verifying username password” connection gets denied. also system shows IP conflict error when tried to connect/ after some time

    ISP has mac control at their end of which i have taken care of

    Plzzzzzzzzzz
    help

    • enitinkumar says:

      hi Aftab,

      go for a wifi router,, as it will work!! This post helps out to reuse adsl2 router, in case ppl already have it. If going for new one then always better to buy a wifi router, as it can be used with any ISP.

    Hey eNitin,
    gr8 job bro..!!
    just a prob.. my beetel 450tc1 admin & password options are not working. tired all ..
    & also reseting nthng happening.!! pls suggest..!

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Vaibhav, there should not be any other password then what we all have tried with, i.e., admin/password. Hope if nothing wrong with the router, then resetting it will always work!!

  88. Rajiv says:

    Hi Nitin,
    Thanks for the help. Your guide worked as mentioned. However 2 out of 4 LAN ports in my beetel modem are labeled as iptv and VoIP. The other 2 ports are labelled NET.
    I use one NET port as LAN in and the other as LAN out.
    However the iptv and VoIP ports somehow are not being recognized as lan out and don’t allow me to use for my other devices. I need to switch ethernet plugs manually each time I need to use a specific wired device.
    Any suggestions. I got my modem from mtnl.
    Cheers.

  89. Ghosh says:

    Hey Nitin,
    Can there be some solution to 450BXi to be used as a “repeater” or in wireless bridge mode?
    It can probally be used in wired bridge mode but I need A wireless setup or I will have to buy a new repeater or a router with repeater or bridge function which can be used as acess point.

    • enitinkumar says:

      This setup works like that only, just give it a LAN input. It will work as wifi access point or repeater you can say.

      • Jay says:

        Hi, Can you please suggest what were the IP address assigned for the internet wire connected to LAN port and personal modem connected to Lan port ?? I suppose the latter will have private ip.. how did the router manage to do mapping or did you assign a gateway on your PC.. network connections… ? Can you please help me know the exact ip address (Except some octet of public ip) to understand how the setup works. Thanks for posting the details anyway.

    Hi Nitin,

    I am using BEAM connection. The wifi device provided by BEAM is not worth. low range and much ping time.. I have one old TIKONA wifi device. both the BEAM and TIKONA device have input of RJ-45 cable. I tried using the Tikona device in replacement of BEAM device. But am unable to use it.

    Please can you help me with the same. When I replace the beam device with Tikona device, though my laptop can find the wifi connection. but am not able to connect to it. password is not matching for the device. i tried resetting the password by manual switch below the tikona device, but its still password protected. Tried reaching to the device via browser by 192.168.1.1 .. But still am not able to connect.

    Please suggest what can be done.

    Thanks in Advance
    Rachit.

      Can’t believe a company Tikona is tracking the comments and offering to provide service.. The best I’ve seen. However, I navigated to tikona tariff page.. The charges are too high than what my cable broadband asks for… I suppose I’m getting a connection of 10mbps for Rs 500 with unlimited usage.. Tikona gives around 8800… 9900 with tax for 1mbps. Although I don’t think practically speeds can range to 10mbps.. but it’d still be over 2mbps. I’ve called for a demo .. lets c.
      Anyway, kudos for your service centers.

  96. Jay says:

    Sir, Are you trying to connect ADSL router to cable broadband ? In case that is the case, I’ve a beetel router and subscribing for cable broadband from local cable tv company. They said they will install a modem at my place that will connect to the tv set top box (digital) at one end.. and they will give me an ethernet connection to connect to my laptop. Can I just plug in that ethernet connection to my router, connect my laptop in wireless mode to router, set interface to bridge mode and browse internet ???

    Some queries are:
    do we have vpi vci settings in cable based broadband… ?
    Will I have to disable DHCP ? And the IP for cable LAN will be assigned by cable operator.. for my machines I can configure a static IP for my devices.
    Even with bridge mode connection , how would the router know which port is it supposed to forward the data to ? because I will not have any wire plugged into the Line port on the router.
    I’m having beetel 450bxi adsl2 router+modem

    • Jay says:

      Do Cable broadband connections have any of the following values port, vpi and vci ???

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hello Jay, the configurations that I have mentioned, converts adsl modem to a dumb router, just converts your lan to wifi. I don’t have idea about vpi and vci setting, never came across anything like that.
      about anyone connecting to my router to get access to tikona network, they must know password to connect to my router, and for mac cloning my mac addresses, so we are safe here.. nothing to worry!
      Tikona is good, but yes costly, and the bad thing is their call center ppl will keep you calling for the payment. So, choose wisely.
      And if the router is configured properly, it will work with any ISP.

      • Jay says:

        THanks for replying..

        >>about anyone connecting to my router to get access to tikona network, they must know password to connect to my router, and for mac cloning my mac addresses, so we are safe here.. nothing to worry!

        No.. no.. not about someone connecting to your router over wireless medium to get access to tikona.. that would be difficult. I’m talking about someone trying to connect to your router from tikona.. lets say I’ve been assigned IP 15.1.1.1 and you are at 15.1.1.2 both assgined by tikona. Will it not be possible for you to connect to my router, since my WAN connection is now connected to my LAN port, and go to router configuration page and modify the settings there ?

        Also, I don’t see that option of Network Address in windows 7 for mac cloning. Further, is my understanding correct in: the mac address from any one of the device connected to the router over wire/wireless should be assigned to all devices connected to the router.. ?

        Can we not configure NAT in ADSL router to achieve direct access ?

        Thanks,

  97. Jay says:

    One more question dude, don’t you think this setting will give anyone in tikona network access to your router.. 192.168.1.1 as they are directly connected to your LAN port now ?? And if they use mac cloning.. how do you secure your router ?

  98. vikas says:

    i had configured the modem earlier and it was working fine .. but suddenly today it stopped working .. i access it thru my mobile .. the mobile keeps showing “obtainin ip address”.. when i tried to configure the modem again i cannot connect it to the system only .. and the modem is not resetting .. pls help me thank u :)

    • enitinkumar says:

      “obtaining ip address” error for me used to come, whenever tikona service wasn’t working. But, resetting also not working.. then, no idea. might be your hardware is gone.. :(

  99. ViCk says:

    Thanks for the help @enitinkumar..
    i configured it and now my wlan modem is working like a charm… thanks to you.. you save my 2k.. as i was about to buy a new router for tikona but thankfully you saved my savings..

    just have one query.. are you able to access internet access on the rest of the 3 ethernet ports…??
    as my router is working fine with wifi… as my tikona plan allow 2 users at a time..

    out of the 4 ports.. 1 port is occupied my tikona..

    nd rest 3 r free.. but m not able to access internet through it…
    plz help me out regarding this… thanks in advance :D

    • enitinkumar says:

      most welcome.. :) feels great that my post is so much of use to everyone !! :)

      regarding usage of ports, yes you can, but the number of internet connected systems, that depends on the plan which you have taken, for me it is 2.

  101. Pradeep says:

    Hi Nitin,
    Need your help. I have Beetel 450TC2 modem + Wi-Fi router and Airtel Connection. The Wi-Fi was configured by the Airtel representative. I am facing an unusual problem. The Wi-Fi once configured is detected in all devices at home i.e. 2 personal laptops and 4 mobile phones. But once the modem is switched off, the laptops are not able to detect the Wi-Fi network. I brought my office laptop to check the problem. The office laptop detected the Wi-Fi network every time after switching off the Modem. One of the personal laptops have the windows 7 and the other laptop is a brand new laptop from HP with Windows 8. Please suggest what should I do

    • enitinkumar says:

      hi Pradeep, sorry couldn’t understand your problem. I guess you want to say, is once restarted, your devices are not able to find the wifi-network. If it is, it’s quiet weird. I haven’t seen any configuration to make router’s ssid hidden. So, sorry I don’t have idea about this problem. :(

    • enitinkumar says:

      can you check, what is the IP getting assigned to you in your laptop ?? if it’s not similar as what is assigned to you in your android devices, then check by mistake static IP is configured in your laptop.

    Is there any possibilities connecting beam fiber with beetel 450tc2

    • enitinkumar says:

      it should be, these configurations converts 450tc2 into a dump wifi access point. so it should work.

      • Anil says:

        Thanks Nitin for quick reply.
        Let me tell you what i have done so far…
        Reset the router
        Changed setting in router
        Beam broadband connection to router lan1 port.
        Ethernet cable into lan2 port of router & that goes into laptop.

        But nothing worked.

        After sometime if i try to connect broadband directly to my lappy …no internet connection.
        Port blocked.
        I have to wait for few hours to get back to network.

        Can you please tell me what exactly need to change in router and laptop settings.

  108. enitinkumar says:

    Anil, I have never seen how beam connection works. So, won’t be able to guess what to try out.
    These settings have worked with tikona, ACT, lan network.

    You need to check with beam, if you want to add your router what should you do.

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Lohit.. I don’t think we can do it wirelessly, a lan wire is required to be pulled from your hathway router into beetel router. Other than that.. i don’t think any possible way is there.

      SSID – name for you wireless connection.
      Key#1 – you are correct, it’s password.
      MacAddress filter – is extra support for safety, you can put your devices mac address here. To get mac address of device like phone check in network connection. for windows you can check on cmd using ip \all and put wireless adapter mac address, in linux it’s ifconfig.

    Hi,
    I have a problem related to beetel ADSL2+router. When I tried to configure my BSNL broadband I found out that It is by default configured for Airtel broadband & wifi settings.

If required I can also send the screenshots of setting pages.

  121. Hi Nitin,

    Using the above guide I was able to configure my TP-Link router with Hathway (where a dialer is created with id and password on the PC).

    My questions are :
    1) I am unable to connect my wifi devices such as phone as the router does not send the traffic to Lan Port 1 from wifi devices. This is not a problem with my PC. How to I set up a wifi route to connect wifi devices. Hathway has provided me a dynamic IP via DHCP.

    2) How do I connect to internet directly from the router without dial-up from the PC?

    Thanks and Regards,

    • enitinkumar says:

      Hi Rohit,

      regarding 1 – I am not able to understand what is the problem.. ” router does not send the traffic to Lan Port 1 from wifi devices.”
      regarding 2 – I don’t think it will be possible. as it’s airtel which would have put there firmware for the router.
