Tips & Tricks: Troubleshooting BSNL Broadband 2022 (FTTH) - No Internet


For many years we have used, Tata Photon, Airtel Dongle, Act Fiber, Hathway in Hyderabad. We were very pleased with Hathway services in Hyderabad since we had zero connectivity issue. Since we had to change our apartment to outskirts of Hyderabad, none of the private players were offering their services. Hence we had to migrate to BSNL FTTH Broadband plan. Gradually we moved to higher plans thanks to OTT usage & COVID19 work from home requirements.

So far the experience with BSNL has been good. BSNL technicians installed the connection in less than 24 hours and this definitely reinstated faith in govt. entity like BSNL. Due to monsoon rains, connectivity problem is quite common. We recently an issue where we got in touch with BSNL spoc for our township. He helped us with the steps despite being on a Sunday holiday over call. We would like to share those troubleshooting steps with you all.

Tips & Tricks: How to change/ create Facetime ID on Mac OS High Sierra

Step by Step Guide to make BSNL Broadband work:

Step 1: Check the lights of your router. See if the data light is blinking.

BSNL ONT - Usually placed outside your premises

Step 2: If the data light is not blinking, check the main board (BSNL ONT box) to see if the data light is on or not? If the data light is not blinking – there could be two scenarios i.e. backend connectivity issue or the fiber connection has been ruptured somewhere (i.e. may be a pole is broken etc.). In either situation of no data lights – simply raise a ticket with BSNL customer care. Also check if the data lights on your  home router is blinking or not.

Very important check: See if Data Light is blinking

Step 3: If the Data light is blinking – but you are still not able to connect to the internet, that means some of the network setting has been refreshed and you need to reconfigure the BSNL ONT. 

Step 4: Refreshing Settings of BSNL ONT

a. Connect your laptop/tablet to your home wifi
b. Type
c. Pop Window appears asking for username and password
        Username: root
        Password: admin
d. Click on Network Setting and then click WAN
e. Check internet connection type as PPPoE (Status: connecting) – allow 60 sec and the username and password window will get activated
f. In Username (your BSNL username):
        Note: 2988XXXX is your landline number, 40 is STD code
In Password field type: password
g. Click on apply and refresh

Step 5: Disconnect and restart your home router.

Step 6: You are now connected to internet

In case these steps doesn't fix your problem, it's most likely that the link is down from the backend (from BSNL side).You will have to flag it with BSNL Customercare.

You can immediately flag a ticket on following link:

Or you can tweet to BSNL team, they are quite efficient in their response:

10 Reasons to update to iOS 10 Beta on your iPhone/ iPad without Jailbreaking


iOS 10 will be releasing this fall. This does not mean you cannot have your hands on it early. The beta 2 release is out and is quite promising. We have updated 3 devices to iOS 10 and using it for a week now. 5S and iPad mini 4 were running smoothly without any evident bugs. In 5C,  8GB variant, we ran of storage and there was  slight lag while hovering over to the notifications section.

Nonetheless iOS 10 Beta is something worth trying. iOS 10 has a big visual design change as compared to earlier releases.

Also Read: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus (Leaked Details) - See what to expect

Build & Quality:

1. Apple says they have “redesigned the experience of the lock screen". This a single biggest design change we have seen to the notifications and lock screen.

2. The widgets now appear on the lock screen as cards. You can tap on the widget to open it. iPhone 6s and 6s plus have 3D touch options now.

3. The notification screen just like the lock-screen has a light crisp feel. You can feel the notifications floating rather than it being published on the wall.

4. The Photos app has an overhaul with a Memories section which picks the best of your clicks.

5. The much needed upgrade is in the mail app. The mail's default mode is now oldest on top. Mail chains are easy to handle with mails not merging and cramping. The mail appears as cards and looks quite sleek. You can just swipe each reply to the left to archive it.

6. The clock has a new feature which alerts you when its time for you to sleep and wake up. It monitors your sleep pattern and provides you with analysis.

7. You can just let your feeling show just by tapping back message with the feelings responses. You can send messages in your handwriting and this would not appear as an image to your friend. It would rather animate how you write it on your paper.

8. Tired of looking for an emoji. Just type in the emoji and tap to send it.

9. The music app is redefined and has a quite a fresh and light feel.

10. iOS 10 beta 2 is released for download. This means iOS 10 beta 2 is a version or two behind the main iOS 10 release. This OS is stable and no bugs encountered in this release so far in 5S and iPad Mini 4.

Review: 9 Best Features of iOS 9

Apple engineers are believed to have done a major overhaul to the new OS & is expected to take Apple loyalists by a storm. In this post we shall give you a quick summary of what are the top 9 (official) features one can expect from iOS 9.

Getting to know about iOS 9

In iOS9 while some new features are up-gradation of existing apps like Siri, Pass-book, Notes while there are some new features altogether like Gestures, App-thinning technology, Transit etc.

Lets look into its hood for broader overview of these features:


Siri is going to undergo major revamp in iOS9. Its going to be more predictive i.e. it will forecast what you want to know even before asking, a feature similar to Google Now or Cortana.
Siri will display pertinent info based on ones’ location, emails, calendar, search history and habits.


The iOS9 will also showcase Apple's new Flipboard-like personalized news reader called News app aiming to replace Newsstand store.
News will be driven by 20 publishers and 50 titles with visually rich layout of a magazine with the immediacy and customization of digital media as stated by Apple spokesperson.


Public transit information was deficient in Apple Maps so far. Now Transit directions will make it’s debut to the Apple Maps app with iOS9. As a kick-off it will start in 12 cities & will expand to other cities in next few months.


Apple's Wallet is the new app which is a re-modification of its Passbook app. In iOS 9, Wallet will hold securely the information on discover credit cards, loyalty cards & store credit cards in addition to the MasterCard, Visa and American Express cards, Apple Pay.


Turning the keyboard into a trackpad? That’s right, the new iOS9 will introduce gestures for the iPad by using two fingers to select text and move the cursor like a mouse.


With the new iOS9, iPad users will be able to run two apps at the same time on the same screen via a split-screen function. It will also include new app switcher, picture-in-picture video and keyboard shortcuts enabling word-processing much easier.


The new Notes app will now let you drop in photos, draw sketches, maps & links and add items from other apps.
You could also now create an instant checklists and take photos from within the app.


Expect an hour more battery life every day with new iOS9 by virtue of adding a low-power mode to squeeze out three extra hours by App-Thinning mechanism.


iOS9 is compatible with all iPhone 4S and above models. This is a significant move as the penetration of this OS will be widely felt. This also exempts existing iPhone/iPad users from upgrading their phone by simply free upgrade of OS.

General Observation & Verdict

iOS 9 is definitely aimed to take on Android & Windows 10. Apple OS is well regarded in the market for very stable & subtle operating system which hardly crashes compared to Android & Windows. The display & sound quality is simply incredible in all iOS devices.
