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

RockMelt, the Social Savvy Browser

RockMelt, a new browser that lives in the cloud and uses Facebook authentication to synchronize a user’s browsing experience across machines, went into limited public beta today.

It was built around the premise that the browser is busted. The thought is that older browsers aren’t made for the way we now use the web, and maybe it’s a solid way of thinking. After all, browsing is a passive activity, and the Internet is increasingly about interaction.

There are some unique concepts here, namely the fact that RockMelt lives in the cloud. This allows your “browser experience” to be, in a way, profiled. Your settings, bookmarks, etc., are all backed up online.

Using Facebook for authentication, your user environment can be replicated anywhere RockMelt is installed. And really, that’s what RockMelt is all about: The user environment.

Users of Google Chrome will feel at home, because RockMelt is built on Chromium, the open source project behind Google’s browser. The major differences are columns running down each side of the browser.

The left side depicts your favorite Facebook contacts. When a contact is listed on the left bar, you’ll be able to quickly initiate Facebook chats with them or post content to their Facebook walls. You can also easily send them e-mails through the seamless contact pop out.

Straddling the right side is your bookmarks — and here’s another area where RockMelt’s cloud is put to clever use. Bookmarks are updated from the cloud, so content is cached and waiting for you when you log on.

All in all, RockMelt is an interesting twist on the browsing experience. The social elements of the browser make for a compelling and streamlined online interaction process. And because it’s powered by Chromium, it not only supports Chromeextensions, it’s guaranteed to support the latest and greatest aspects of the web, like HTML5 and CSS3.

Browser : Epic

Bangalore-based startup, Hidden Reflex, has developed a browser for the Indian audience called Epic, thanks to Mozilla’s popular open-source platform. Though made on lines of the Firefox browser, it has many firsts

It’s the only browser that has an in-built anti-virus scanner and other unique privacy features like the flash cookie deletion.

Epic also has a side-bar with shortcut icons for frequently used applications and websites – all of which are a part of the 1500+ apps that ‘Epic’ boasts of.

Epic provides a uniquely Indian browsing experience. Epic's India sidebar supports Indian content by providing users access to the latest national and regional news from popular publications, live television channels, videos, stock quotes, live cricket scores, top music albums, and local events

My favourite, however, is the ‘type in Indian languages’ widget that can be done using the English script, which the browser instantly converts into the regional language chosen.

Users can choose from 1500+ customised Indian themes and wallpapers ranging from freedom fighters to famous Bollywood and regional film stars. Writing in Indian languages is supported throughout Epic. Users can instantly write in Indian languages on any webpage or in Write, Epic's free built-in word processor. Twelve Indian languages are currently supported. Free antivirus scanning and healing is built into Epic

Download Epic from here.

HTML 5 is the next major revision of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web.

HTML 5 is the proposed next standard for both HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0, as development on the next version of the latter has stopped. HTML 5 was initially said to become a game-changer in Web application development, making obsolete such plug-in-based rich Internet application (RIA) technologies as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX. Such applications would be made obsolete by specifying a standard video codec for all browsers to use. However, in December 2007, the editor of the burgeoning draft specification dropped the recommendation of the free software Theora and Vorbis codecs, after opposition from Apple and Nokia. This means HTML 5 does not currently specify a common video codec for Web development.

The ideas behind HTML 5, originally referred to as Web Applications 1.0, were pioneered in 2004 by the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG); HTML 5 incorporates Web Forms 2.0, another WHATWG specification. The HTML 5 specification was adopted as the starting point of the work of the new HTML working group of the W3C in 2007.
