Making the BSN DataOne Wireless Home Network Guide

Author: admin

So, Here is my StepByStep guide to configuring a WiFi network with BSN DataOne. Though many wireless routers claim that it is a nobrainer setup to configure the wireless network, I found it to be not as easy as it looks to be. For example, NetGear comes with a wizard that never works with BSN broadband connected via HUAWEI SmartAX 880. For those of you desperate to take your BSN DataOne broadband wireless, follow these steps. It took me more than 2 days to figure and come out with these configuration details.
Before I start, let me share what I have:

1)BSN DataOne 256Kbps connection.

2)HUAWEI SmartAX MT880 (The modem supplied by BSN).

3) (configuring netgear dg632 for BSN)NetGear WGR614v5There are 2 steps to configuring your wireless network. First, you have to change the default settings of the SmartAX MT880 modem and configure it to enable PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet). Second, you have to configure the NetGear Router to talk to the modem.
Keep your modem, wireless router and your username and password from BSN handy before you proceed to the next step.
If you want to change your existing configuration, take a backup of your configuration. This guide is to build your network from the groundup.

1)Configuring and testing your Broadband connectionSetup the modem as per the instructions mentioned in the manual. Ensure that the RJ11 (thin) cable from the splitter is connected to the ADS port and the RJ45 cable connects your machine to the Ethernet port of the modem.
Change the IP properties of your Ethernet card to the following: the browser and type to go to the HUAWEI configuration tool.
Enter ?admin? as username and ?admin? as passwordExpand the Home node and select the WAN SettingUnder this web page, configure the following:PVC Number ? PVC 0Wan Type ? PPPConnection Type ? PPPoEVPI/VCI ? 0 / 35Default Route EnabledUser Name ? Password ? Use DNS ? EnabledMax Idle Time ? Always OnClick on Apply and allow the modem to restart.
Close the browser windowOpen the browser and type ?admin? as username and ?admin? as passwordYou should see the Summary page. The Status is normally Red indicating that the connection is not ON.
Click on the Plug icon in the Note column to connect.
After the Connecting message, you should see the summary page again with the Status turning Green. Notice the IP Address and the Gateway Address.
Expand Tools node and click on Misc.
Type and click on PingYou should see Ping Result: SuccessfulClick on the an Settings link under the Advanced node.
Configure the following:IP Address ? Mask ? Domain Name ? BlankClick on Apply and allow the modem to restartOpen the Network properties of your Ethernet card and change the IP properties to the followingIP Address ? Mask ? Gateway ? DNS server ? (BSN DNS Server IP)Alternate DNS server ? (BSN DNS Server IP)Open your browser and type your favorite UR. You should be online by this time!

2)Configuring the Wireless Router and enabling the WPA securityConnect the network cable from the NetGear wireless router to the machine.
Open the IP Properties of your Network card and Enable DHCP. Select the following on the IP properites dialog.
Obtain IP Address AutomaticallyObtain DNS Server Address AutomaticallyOpen the browser and type ?admin? as username and ?password? as the passwordClick on Wireless Settings link on the navigation pane and configure with the following valuesWireless NetworkName (SSID) Region ? AsiaChannel ? 11Mode ? g and bSecurity OptionsWEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)Security Encryption (WEP)Authentication Type ? AutomaticEncryption Strength ? 64bitSecurity Encryption (WEP) KeyPassphrase Click on GenerateRecord the value of Key1 ? This is required when you log on to your WiFi network the first time.
Click on Apply and wait till the router reboots(Wireless will not be enabled till you complete the next step)Click on the Basic Settings link on the left side navigation pane and configure the followingDoes your Internet connection require a login? ? NoAccount Name ? blankDomain Name ? blankInternet IP AddressUse Static IP AddressIP Address ? Subnet Mask ? IP Address ? Name Server (DNS) AddressUse These DNS ServersPrimary DNS ? DNS ? MAC AddressUse Default AddressClick on Apply and wait till the router restartsConnect the Network Cable coming from the ADS Modem to the Wireless RouterFew things to remember ?
Don?t connect the ADS an Cable to the Internet Uplink port of the Wireless Router. It never worked for me. Always connect it to one of the 4 ports excluding the designated Internet port.
IP Addresses can be anything of your choice. But it is a good idea to follow the 192.168.x.x conventionIf you get lost any time, feel free to reset the configuration by poking a pin into the reset slot on the modem and the router.
Don?t compromise on the security. Always enable WPA and save your key. Don?t let your friendly neighbors ride on your network!
