      • I have the same modem and have connected 3 laptops but am not able to connect my iphone and ipad via wireless.. Is there a limitation on the number of connections (both hard wired and wireless) this modem AR800V V3 can accomodate.. Any help is appreciated.

        Some wierd reason BSNL_AP shows as connected when I put in any password other than the one that I know is the right password. However, when I try to browse on the phone or iPad it does not work and says no connection to the internet

      • Thought it says unlimited Wireless, I think 3-4 is the max it can support..

  10. dear – my problem is very simple.

    AR800v is working good. user/pass saved into config console. Problem is – until i switch off the modem internet connection remains on. i ve connected modem to lan port of pc.

    CAN i make a dialer type login from my PC so that modem is ON but internet is only connected when i wish to connect ??


    • Hi aman,

      The modem is connected to the Phone line and when you turn ON the modem it will establish a DSL connection between your ISP (BSNL) and your Modem.

      I do not think there is a settings which we could change to Turn ON internet only when we need it. Supose if you use Internet explorer and do not want internet, then just enter some fake proxy address in IE options->Connection tab->LAN settings->Check mark “Use proxy server for your LAN”, also check mark Bypass Proxy serve for local address. Now enter some address you like. example:, port 8088 (ANything you like, i just typed what came in my mind).

      Next time when you need internet, you would need to uncheck these options in IE.

      Not a solution, but it may work.

  11. Just helped a friend re-setup her connection setting on the phone, thanks for this article. Great help!

  20. Can I used BSNL UTSTarcom WA3002G4 ADSL Modem as Access point or Repeater for expanding range of signal of my root router in house as I have set up my BSNL Router on first floor. I got weak signal from UTSTarcom WA3002G4 ADSL Modem in summer many times. I think about to purchase new BSNL Router from BSNL Customer care. Is it possible to use my old BSNL router (UTSTarcom WA3002G4) as access point or repeater with other router provided by BSNL. I have read about 802.11n router on Website. Does BSNL provide any router based on 802.11n to latest customer? If I purchase 802.11n router from market or BSNL, does it will improve signal range in my house. I have now 802.11g wifi card in my two computers. But Router provided by BSNL broadband is based on 802.11b. So, I want to upgrade my network to 802.11g or 802.11n. Can you suggest me latest Wi-Fi router which are provided by BSNL Now.

    Please help

    • Sorry, I do not think you can use it as a Access point. These modems does not come with all the features of Routers (Dont campare with Linksys (cisco), dlink ). :)

  21. Hi,

    Nice doc. Saved lot of time..

    Thank you.

    • Glad that it helped

  47. Hi Siru sir, Fortunately, I happened to visit this webpage only today. All kudos to u for the nice explanation. I have the same AR800V v3.0 ADSL Modem for my BSNL internet connection installed by the techies of BSNL. It is working fine for my desktop (with wired connection) and for my laptop (wi-fi). This wi-fi works well with other laptops too. But it is not working with my iPhone 3GS and iPod 3G. They recognise the modem (wi-fi icon and tick mark appear on the mobile), but it does not get connected to internet; says “Cannot connect to ……”. I tried with other iPhones and iPods, but the same result. To other wi-fi networks, these 2 instruments get connected automatically (without any entry in the iphone settings). I reported this to BSNL, but they are helpless. Could U pl sort out my problem, which’ll be highly appreciated. T’you in advance. –MS Ramakrishna

  48. Great work..thanks
