Question about Cell Phones
I use MTNL broadband on my PC through a Huawei modem(no wifi) rented by mtnl. I wish to upgrade to wifi version for with I have got a Belkin 54G wifi Router+Modem from a relative. I called MTNL helpline and got the ip/gateway/DNS settings. But with these settings I am unable to connect to the internet. It shows the "Received Packets" as 0 while "Sent Packets" keep increasing. I cannot access 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1! Are a separate set of ip/DNS/Gateway settings required for Belkin as compared to Huawei? I can access the internet on my Laptop with the Huawei modem by using the settings provided by MTNL person but cannot access internet with my Belkin router. Is my router fault? Do I require separate DNS/ip/Gateway settings? Currently I use ip 192.168.1.*** Gateway 192.168.1.1 DNS 59.18*.*.**

Try geting a routher that featres wirless and eathernet so you do not have to have two boxes. You will have to know its ip adress enter it internet explore and then you will be able to protect it through there.

SOURCE: switch off modem on belkin 54g
I'm guessing DSL to CABLE switch? Most will tell you no but it can be done. ISPs commonly use dual modem/router type devices in order to charge some sort of fee every month to the consumer.
Essentially what you're going to be doing is running a line from your wall to the modem. Now instead of running a line directly from the modem to the PC what you're going to be doing is I believe plugging it in to the 4th position on the back of the combo device. 1st you may have to reconfigure the device for your new ISPs information ie. DNS SUFFIX, IP ADDRESS, etc. Don't quote me on this but I believe to do that you'll have to connect the ethernet line directly from the PC to the combo device via port 1 on the device. That will enable you to configure the device as you would any other router.
It's all a bit of a pain in the rear but it can be done. I've noticed forums around the net describing the process in further detail but without model specific information the best I can say is yes someone somewhere would know how to do it so don't let anyone especially your ISP say that it can't be done.
Best of luck!

If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.
