They have managed to provide blazing fast internet connections at rates affordable to an average middle class Indian. Although they provide top quality connection speeds with very little down time, their technical support leaves a lot to be desired. More so when it comes to configuring connections in Linux. They just mention Linux as "other operating systems" in their help guides. This article covers the configuration of the BSNL Dataone broadband connection over a Dare Global DB108 modem-router on Ubuntu. Although we have tested it only on Ubuntu the steps should more or less apply for other flavours of Linux as well. There are two ways of configuring a PPPOE connection - one is using the pppoeconf command and the other by configuring the router directly. The former requires you to log on an log off from your pc while the latter lets you have a full-time-up connection which lets you go online the moment you turn on your PC. We are covering only the second strategy in this tutorial.
  1. Connect the BSNL DB108 modem/router to the BSNL line and the power supply
  2. Connect the modem to the computer using an ethernet cable
  3. Power on the modem and the computer.
  4. Go to System/Administration/Network and ensure that the network card (most probably eth0) is the default connection and that it is active.
  5. In the properties dialog for eth0, change the IP address to static IP and set the IP to 192.168.1.2. Set the DNS servers as 61.1.96.69, 61.1.96.71, 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222; Leave the other settings as default.
  6. Check if you have connectivity to the router by running 'ping 192.168.1.1' in a terminal.
  7. Open firefox and go to http://192.168.1.1. This will bring up the authentication dialog. Enter user-admin and password-password to log into the router administration system.
  8. Click on WAN in the left menu.
  9. In the WAN setup page identify the row with VPI/VCI value as 0/35 (probably the third row) and click on the Edit button.
  10. In the wizard that follows, select PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) as the connection type and enter your BSNL broadband connection username(eg: anoopjohn) and password(eg: asdf123). Leave all other settings as is and save by clicking next.
  11. Reboot the router by clicking on reboot in the left menu.
  12. Test the connection by pinging some public IP address (eg: 208.67.222.222 of the OpenDNS.org). Also check your dns settings by pinging www.zyxware.com. Verify this by trying to open www.zyxware.com in your browser.
  13. If all goes well you should be able to access internet on your system by this point.
In step 6 if you dont have connectivity to the router then you have to check if your ethernet card is up by running 'ifconfig -a'. If the card is up then you should be able to ping 127.0.0.1. If both card and cable are up then you should try resetting the router and see if it is working fine. Normally there shouldn't be any problem. In step 12 if there are problems accessing internet sites but are able to ping public ip addresses then check your DNS server settings in /etc/resolv.conf. This file should be of the format nameserver 61.1.96.69 nameserver 61.1.96.71 nameserver 208.67.220.220 nameserver 208.67.222.222 If you have any questions you can contact us by commenting to this article.

[body] =>

Computer prices have dropped almost 80% over the last 5-6 years. From around 50-60 thousand rupees for an entry level system, prices have gone down to around 13k-15k. Parallely laptop prices have also been going down proportionately. However laptops are still being tiered, though in the lower rungs, in the luxury item range. This is reflected in the premium people are being made to pay when buying a laptop. Inspite of this, the laptop market is a booming market and more and more people are considering a laptop as their first computer. As with any growing market there is an opportunity for businesses to exploit the lack of information available for the customers. Through this analysis we would like to present before you aspects you have to consider before deciding to buy a laptop Do you really need a laptop?

  1. Do you travel a lot and does your work require you to access information or applications from your personal computer?
  2. Do you travel a lot and do you have to access internet while you are travelling?
  3. Do you carry your office work back from home or the other way round a lot? Do you require more than just the files which you can carry on a thumbdrive?
  4. If you donot use the internet as part of your work and if you carry your work between your office and home, then do you use any other application other than a document editor (eg: OpenOffice Writer/Microsoft Word) or a presentation editor (eg: OpenOffice Impress / Microsoft Powerpoint) or spreadsheet editor (OpenOffice Calc / Microsoft Excel) as part of your work?
  5. Does your work require you to conduct presentations/seminars in different locations?

If you answer yes to any of the above questions then you probably require a laptop. Even otherwise in some specific situations a laptop becomes a more apt choice than a desktop. Say for example you are a small business owner and you would like to go for a business meeting with a friend. It would be much more advantageous to have a laptop which would be much more convenient. You should not buy a laptop just because someone else told you that it is much more comfortable to use. On the contrary a desktop is actually much more comfortable for working for longer stretches. You should not buy one just because your friend has one. An apt statement here would be - "We have no authority to use more than what is required at minimum cost be it energy, materials, or money", Laurie baker. Just because you can afford to buy a laptop you dont need to buy one. Advantages of a laptop over a desktop

  1. Mobility - You can work from anywhere
  2. Single profile - Single profile and environment at all places where you work
  3. Higher Security - You are the only one who has access to your system.
  4. Easier for Presentations - You dont have to worry about compatibilities if you carry your laptop

Advantages of a desktop over a laptop Cheaper - No luxury premium in the cost

  1. Lower price performance ratio - You can get a PC at almost half or less for any comparably powerful laptop
  2. Easier to use - Keyboard and mouse bigger and easier to use
  3. Larger Screen Sizes - You can have a desktop with even 21" monitors
  4. Flexibility in components - You can customize a desktop computer with just the components you require
  5. Longer warranties.
  6. Lower cost of maintenance.

One of the pieces which had been the stumbling block till now had been the internal modem. We had tried all the internal modems available in the Trivandrum local market and we had failed, ... well not all. We have found the missing link! We recently tried out the WeP (Wipro e-Peripherals) Spider 56K V.92 PCI Modem with the Conexant HSFi CX11252-412 0610y1DB chipset (PCI ID 14F1:2F30 - from running lspci from Linux). This modem is supported in Linux and it costs only around Rs. 375. Up till now we were hesitant in offering to install linux on PCs with internal modems because of the dreaded unsupported winmodem issue. No longer so. New PCs are seldom bought with an internal modem but there are quite a lot of people with PCs who still depend on dialup as their primary means of accessing the internet. So this has opened up a whole new market for us and Linux. The Conexant HSFi CX11252 driver installation is pretty straigtforward and is given below Setting up Conexant HSFi CX11252 on Linux Linuxant.com provides drivers for modems with conexant chipsets. They provide two versions of the driver one is a fully free version and another is the paid version. The fully free version works perfectly fine but the modem speed will be limited to 14.4kbps. The paid version costs only around 19$ and those of you who can afford it should just go ahead and buy it. Linuxant is following a model that should be a good example for other driver development companies and hardware manufacturers. The driver installation has been simplified through an easy to use installation program. The installation is available at http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/downloads-installer.php. Just download the application and follow the instructions. If you are already connected to the internet through a DSL or a Cable modem connection or through your LAN then the installer will automatically detect your chipset and settings and download the required driver and install it for you. Otherwise you will have to download the driver from http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php and set it up manually using instructions in the following page http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/install.php.
