How to configure PTCL DSL router over ethernet

After writing an article PTCL broadband internet DSL service“; lot of ptcl dsl� subscribers are asking about “Configuring DSL over ethernet” so I decided to write a detailed article.

Please note that, this configuration is only applicable to ZTE ZXDSL 831D modem which is provided by ptcl (in white color). I am not covering the ethernet installation and DSL cable connections in this guide because I assume that it is already installed and configured.

Please follow the instructions for step by step configuration.

  1. Point your internet explorer or firefox browser to 192.168.1.1
  2. Login using ZXDSL as username and ZXDSL as password
  3. Click on “connection settings” in left menu
    • Delete all connections except default one named “rfc139
    • Click on “create new connection”
    • Choose “PPP over Ethernet”
    • Press “goto next step”
      Connection settings are as follows:

      • VPI: 0
      • VCI: 103
      • QoS: UBR
      • Authentication: NONE
      • username: 042XXXXXXX
      • password: XXXXXXXXXXX
      • Click “Create this new service”
  4. Click on”Advance Settings” in left menu
    • Then click on security in sub-menu
    • Look for the “Security Interface” and then click on add interface
    • Select ppp-0 and then click on Apply
    • Click on “Enable NAT to Internal Interface”
  5. Click on “Maintenance” in left menu, choose”Save” and press the save button
  6. Click on “Restart” and press restart button (do not check reset to factory default)

For Windows:

  1. Right Click “My Network Places” on desktop and select “Properties”
  2. Right Click “Local Area Connections” andselect Properties
  3. In the General Tab; double click on”Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and made the following settings:

    PTCL DSL settings

Press OK and enjoy the broadband experience!!

For Linux:

edit /etc/resolv.conf and write:

nameserver 203.135.0.70
nameserver 203.135.1.117

Save, exit and enjoy!

Your internet is NOW working every time you restart your computer, no need to dial in.

    Step 1: Connecting to the Splitter, Power Connection & LAN cable.

    1 Line hole connects to PTCL wire or Wall phone Jack (RJ-11 Jack).

    2 Modem hole connects to the DSL jack of the ADSL CPE (Customer Premises
    Equipment).

    3 Phone hole connects to a telephone set.

    4 Connect the Power Adapter to the AC power plug and attach the connector of
    adapter to the CPE and switch it on.

    5 Attach one end of LAN wire (RJ-45) to the LAN interface of CPE and the other
    end to the LAN wire to the LAN interface of computer’s LAN card.

    6 Link Indicator lights will lit up and show the connectivity. ADSL light will start
    blinking and soon will be static as a sign of connectivity with our system, if the
    line is properly jumpered in PTCL premises with the DSLAM (Digital
    Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer).Joint less and direct cable line from the
    nearest PTCL pole or cabinet must be connecting to your splitter and then all
    the phone extensions must be taken from the phone hole of splitter. The Drop
    wire distance from PTCL pole or Cabinet must not be ideally more than 50
    meters.(Twisted pair wire can be longer)

    Step 2: ADSL Configuration in CPE and Computer

    Hi any 1 knows how to config linksys adsl over ptcl
    _______________________________________

    Which modem are you using?
    Anyway, change the PPPOE settings to Bridge connection.

    And Make sure you’ve have the following Connection settings

    * VPI: 0
    * VCI: 103
    * QoS: UBR

    And do not choose obtain IP automatically as it didn’t work for me, but do manually write DNS server address.

    For Router:

    Choose PPPOE and rightly enter your username and password…
