BSNL Broadband UT 300 R modem configuration

Hi, in this blog i have provided as much details as possible for the modem configuration. Use this info with your own risk. Dont blame me if something wrong happens. I cant take any responsibility. Note that bsnl does not support config thru modem - correct me if i am wrong and they support windows directly, you have to hunt for linux configurations. ( do they give support?? ;-) ). However, you can drop a comment saying that it worked.

This configuration enables you to work in any distro in Linux (which can connect to a LAN and all distros do provide such facility) or say even in windows. You dont have to dial, nor install pppoe or rp-pppoe. It just works out of the box. Sriram Karra in that thread ([Ilugc] BSNL Broadband connection not working in Linux(Debian Sarge) ) @ILUGC gave most of the details, i have just ksnapshotted it. For more details about the modem, look here. the pdf is here

BTW read the blog from last to first post. I should have published the last one (this one first), made a mess (does anyone have an answer to, how to correct this mess?)

One advantage of trying this out is that if something goes wrong, just reboot using the default settings and the mess u made, if u had wrongly configured is all gone :-). (for details about how to wipe out ur mess, check out the posts below)

Jus' now I joined the Bloggers' group by registering.
I have a problem.
Two days back I re-installed Windows 98 in the PC of my friend since he had some problem with the display . I re installed the latest driver for his motherboard too ( P2 processor with 810 series chipset ). The system started functioning properly but since then the BSNL Broadband connection could not be accessed. They are getting the Error message "Error 633... The Modem is not connected properly .... bla .. bla... bla...."
The matter was reported to BSNL but they have said everything is hunky dory with their exchange.
So I happened to see your blog report through Google Search but unfortunately, the step by step procedure for configuring their UT-300R Modem of UT Starcom could not be accessed as you have promised. Where is it? Can you favour me with a reply and send me the step by step procedure for the configuring / trouble shooting et al.?
My e mail ID is :
Why don't you oblige me and make me get my peace of mind?
With best wishes,
Yours sincerely,

Hi there,
it seems to be some(i don't exactly know) JavaScript +HTML combo error. I would recommend you to right click the tab link and click on "open in new window", it opens the target screen in new window, but atleast it shows what we expect it to show.

Reply back if it works.
