Just not we finished publishing unboxing pictures of Belkin N150 wireless modem-router and here is a quick guide for those who are trying to configure their Belkin N150 modem-router with Airtel broadband connection.
I bought this device from Thailand and it comes with a handy template which shows the settings of popular broadband connection in most of Asian countries, so you can use the same guide to configure it for Reliance, BSNL or MTNL connection too.
Getting started with Belkin N150 Modem-Router With Airtel Broadband connection:
Airtel Broadband settings:
And your password would be: your account number. Which you can get it from your Airtel broadband bill at the top. You can also get your account number by login into your current Airtel modem by typing: 192.168.1.1 in your web browser field, and try login in with default username and password, i.e:
- username: admin
- password: password
If you have forgotten your Airtel modem password, you can try password as your account number which can be retrieved from your Airtel broadband bill.
Apart from this, there are 3 settings which you need to remember:
- Connection type: PPP0E
- VPI/VCI: 1/32
Connecting your Belkin router:
Connect your Belkin modem-router with power connector and in ADSL line, plug in your Airtel ADSL cable.
Now, you can either connect to router from laptop using Wi-Fi or by Lan cable. I simply connected using Lan cable, by default it picked the I.P from DHCP.
Setting up Airtel broadband:
Now, open 192.168.2.1 in your web browser, it will prompt for password, and if you have not changed your Belkin router password, simply hit next.
On the next field, it will ask you to enter the connection type as shown in below image, select PPP0E and click Next:
Enter your Airtel broadband credentials, as I have mentioned above. So your final output would look something like this:
Click on Next/Save and it will restart your router. It might take 60 seconds, so be patient. Once your router is restarted, the light on your modem-router will turn green and it indicates that you are connected to internet.
Alternatively, Airtel also suggest you to add the DNS field manually, though I leave it as default and use Automatically from ISP. Though if you wish to add Airtel DNS, you can add these DNS:
