How To Configure “BSNL” Nokia Siemens Router 1600 For Always ON with a secured WIFI Network

Recently I have configured my BSNL connection to always on for a secured WIFI network. In process I have learn that if you set "Network Authentication" to "Open" & "Enable" the "WEP Encryption" you can set a password to prevent unauthorized access. Both WPA - PSK, WPA2 - PSK are considered to be better than WPA & WPA2 encryptions as they were created to overcome the loop holes in WEP Encryption but, be advised that even they can be hacked in a matter of minutes.

To avoid entering user id & password on a Nokia Siemens Residential Router 1600 every time you connect do the following steps.

  1. Open the browser and type in the address bar, on being asked type both user id & password as admin, by default it will be admin/admin
  2. Now click on ADSL >> WAN
  3. In the 35_1 line (usually the first line) click on Edit
  4. Click on next, leave default
  5. Select PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) & then click on Next
  6. In the page that appears next provide the user id & password you use to connect to the internet
    PPP Username: ((Type your user id in this field))
    PPP Password: ((Type your password in this field))
    leave the other options at default settings.
  7. Click on Next
  8. Ensure that Enable NAT & Enable Firewall are checked.
  9. Click on Next
  10. Click on Save

Hopefully this should do the trick Smile
