    • DIR 605L and DIR 615 both are not compatible with BSNL Broadband and must be connected via modem provided by BSNL. Both the routers donot support dual WAN connectivity so you cannot use both alliance and bsnl at the same time with it.
      I can guarantee you that DIR-615 and DIR 605L fully supports alliance broadband (tested personally).

      In you you want to use both ISP with single router then buy router with dual WAN port or go for a Mikrotik Router (www.routerboard.com). Model : RB951G-2HnD. Feel free to contact me for any further queries.

    hello Srijit, just came across your blog while searching…. I recently bought 605l wifi router. i am trying to connect it to the BSNL broadband modem. but the internet doesnt work. it shows as connected but doesnt open website. directly using bsnl modem works fine… Can you help me regarding this?

    • Did u set ppope as connection type in WAN? try to ping your modem from router console.

      • NickS.

        i think i figured it out with some hit n trials…. i had set MTU settings to 1500 changed them to 1460 and it solved the problem… 😀 thanks Srijit for the reply

  • Savya Swaroop

    does this router support cable broaband & as well as bsnl broaband?

    • Yes it supports BSNL too but obviously you need a model for that… 🙂

      • Savya Swaroop

        does it support all cable broadband ?

        • As far as my knowledge is concerned, it supports al most all popular cable broadband like Alliance, Meghbela (PMPL), Wishnet, Siti Cable etc.

          • Savya Swaroop

            Dlink 600L & 605L router both are same right ?

          • No not same at all. 605L is more advanced with respect to speed and coverage.

          • Savya Swaroop

            NetGear N150 wireless modem Router DGN1000 supports cable broadband ?

          • No.

  • Mitesh

    Hi Srijit,

    First off a great blog … really :). I have a bsnl broadband connection and hence am connecting to this router using a modem. I have configured the modem in (PPPoE mode) and am able to connect to the internet using a lan cable (modem – Dlink GLB-502T).

    Then I connected my PC to the router, and the router to the modem.
    When i tried following the instructions in the video, after entering the url and logging in I get internet connection status as Disconnected. I restarted the modem and the router but still am unable to configure.
    Where am I going wrong ? Do I need to do any additional setting before connecting the modem to the router ?

    Thanks a lot

    • Thanks for the complement..
      When you connected the router to the modem, what type of connection did u use? It should be PPoPE for the router. Then connect it to PC directly. Now dont set up PPoPE again on PC. Connect directly to internet.

  • Manan Bhagat

    hi Sriijit Bannerjee,
    i want to configure my router
    ISP: GTPL
    ROUTER:DIR-605L

    • What type of internet service do they provide? Cable or DSL? If its cable follow my video. If its PPoPE type do the needful.

      • Kalpesh

        Hi Sriijit,

        Mine is also same Using GTPL [PPoPE] and Dir-605L.

        For me internet didn’t gets automatically connected, when i power on router. I have to manually login on router inferface, where i can see internet status ‘Disconnected’.

        Once i press button ‘Connect’, it works like charm.

        Please suggest a way to get internet connection auto connection from ISP.

    • What type of Internet service do they provide? If its cable broadband then follow my video. If they provide DSL type connection then use PPoPE connection.

  • Saptarshi Bagchi

    just a question, how does it bypass the username password that we need to enter to enable the internet from the web browser..

    oh and after configuring the router, should i change the IP address of the host and the client? since i use the cable internet, i had to change the ip and the rest of my pcs 😀

    thx for your videos 😀 i am getting the dir 600l from D link

    • You cannot bypass that. Why do u need to change all IPs? Router should allocate IPs for ur pcs via DHCP

  • Piyush

    Hi, I am unable to configure my d link -605 on my hathway broadband
    . I am not able to access 192.168.01 page , it is showing Shared WAN Miniport
    (PPPOE) , on network connections page.
    please help

    • check ip of your pc. it should be in the range of 192.168.0.X. Then access router admin panel.

  • Crenshaw Cool

    hi. i have a very unique problem. please help me .
    i have a bsnl modem. to use wifi on my laptop i installed this d- link router, all connections were right. my net get connected but the problem is i can open only extratorrent site, when i try to open google, gmail, yahoo or any othr site it doesnt. can u tell me wahts wrong in this, if i use only modem ad connect in my pc net wrks fine ut when i use router both my pc and laptop cant open anysite other tahn extratorrent.,

    in the router i didnt mdified anything. sipmly connected wires and net get connected,
    please tell me what i have to do.

    • Donno what is your router’s settings. It’s best press that reset switch on router and reconfigure just with the IPs, pass and all. leave any other settings to its default. See if it works or not.

      • Crenshaw Cool

        i didnt touched any settings. resetting the modem is safe?

        • Reset the router. Not the modem. Ya its safe

          • Crenshaw Cool

            thank u sir g. 🙂

          • U r welcome bro. 🙂

          • Satender Singh

            have a bsnl modem. to use wifi on my laptop i installed this d- link router N300, all connections were right. my net get connected, when i try to open google, gmail, yahoo on wifi only …while when I connect laptop with lan all sites work… I have tried resetting the modem..it did not work the problem persists

          • There is some problem with your DNS Settings. Uncheck Enable DNS Relay in Router config and use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as dns servers.

          • Satender Singh

            Thanks Srijit for the prompt reply did the same.. did the changes but no result. its working while I am connected with Lan but not on wifi…

  • Aniruddha Mukherjee

    Hi Srijit….I got the entire process…but my only question is while using alliance broad band do i need to keep my host machine (desktop) ON at all times? Then I will have replace my desktop every 6 months!!!. Is there any way that after setting up router ….i need not switch on my desktop only switching on the router would be enuf to access via wifi for my mobile devices.? Also i do not authenticate via portal….i use ip connector provided by Alliance…please guide

    • If you keep ur router 24 X 7 then you will not get disconnected or logged out provided there is no glitch on alliance part. No need of keeping desktop on all time. Just keep router on

  • rajit

    Hi Srijit,
    I have bought a Wireless D-link N300 ASDL+Router can i configure it for a cable internet…presently am directly plugging in network cable and using internet …i have a static IP configured in my laptop so is it possible to configure my N300 and enable WIFI..?

  • Vangala Manoj

    hi srijit,
    I have a D-Link dir 600l n150 cloud router, i want to get a new router which increases the range by about 10 meters because with this router iam getting an unstable connection at the boundaries of my house, can you please suggest a proper router for me, i heard that the N300 router only gives higher bandwidth but has same coverage an N150 is that true??
    Thank you.

  • Sourav Kundu

    Hi Srijit, I hv just bought a Dlink dir 605L router & a new Alliance Broadband connection. There is no modem. Alliance has provided a long cable that looks like a LAN cable & that’s all i’ve got. It would be of great help if u give me a step by step procedure. Tried 2 follow ur video bt cdn’t set up d router.
    Thank u

    • Insert the cable in the WAN/Internet port of the router. Then connect the patch cord provided from the lan port to the router. then assign static ip for ur pc 192.168.0.100 and gateway 192.168.0.1. then follow my video.

      • Sourav Kundu

        i did it exactly as u said but in spite of trying many times 192.168.0.1 did not open up the setup wizard page. I don’t understand if anything’s wrong. Being a novice, it’s turning out 2b very tuf 2 do d installation.However i cd connect my phones 2d router, signal strength is excellent. But all efforts at trying 2 open d Alliance login page or even d D-link setup wizard failed miserably. I changed d static ip too but no result. Please help!!

        • Sourav Kundu

          But when i connect only d Alliance cable 2d RJ45 of comp, ev’thing is fine & i can use d net. Now this is a peculiar problem. When i insert d cable in router’s WAN port, internet & wifi LED indicator is full green but it can’t access Alliance. Kothay thik gondogol hoche bolte paren? Is there a mismatch in the IP addresses b/w d computer & router? what do i do with d subnet mask & gateway addresses? A whole day wasted

          • Configure the router’s WAN ip according to the IP given by alliance.
            Configure your pc’s ip to 192.168.0.2 and gateway to 192.168.0.1 where 192.168.0.1 is the ip of your router

          • Indranil Bhanja

            Can you pls elaborate this step. I am having exactly same problem described above by Mr. Sourav. Not able to open 192.168.0.1 from my PC where as router is already configured and other devices are usable.

  • Èma Dûla Ralte

    Hi Srijit,
    Right now, I am using Netgear N150 Wireless ADSL router and used BSNL broadband DSL line to connect to the internet. And then I bought this DLink N300 Cloud Router but I cannot connect to the internet using this DLink router. This router cannot be used as a modem or what? Or is it can be used as an extention? I need your help. Otherwise, this Dlink is just a waste of money for me.

    • For BSNL u need a modem with router. But for Alliance or local cable broadband u need ether port enabled routers

  • Heramb Patil

    i have bsnl broadband . i connected the modem to the router .

    please help me.

  • Shashikanth.G

    Hi,

    I have purchased a D-Link Wireless N 300 Cloud Router and set it up according to the instructions given in the quick installation guide. I was able to connect a laptop and a desktop to the wireless network of the router and everything worked fine.

    I have two Android smart phones. When I try to connect any of these phones to the wireless network of the router, the router just restarts. I tried doing a factory reset of the router and set it up again but the problem still persists.

    Looks like there is a defect with the router as it shouldn’t crash/reset when trying to connect a phone.

    Can you please let me know what the the next steps I need to take?

    Regards,

    Shashikanth

    • Nilesh

      Please help me with this prob Srijesh

      • Create an online account at DLink’s give site. Then use that user id and pass to configure the cloud.
        As per my opinion it is practically of no use.

        • Nilesh

          Don’t understand it. Could you please elaborate more. I am novice for this activity,

  • Samit Bhowal

    Hi, Srijit, I have bought an WIRELESS N 300 CLOUD ROTER DIR-605L of Dlink.
    I am using BSNL broadband connection with Siemens C2110 Modem.
    i installed the router according to the process through my laptop with windows 7.
    The router is working fine. i can access the net via laptop using ethernet port of router as well as through wi fi using android mobiles.
    my problem is that some websites like google is not opening through router.
    but facebook or yahoo mail is OK.
    when I only use the modem without the router everything is alright.
    same thing for laptop and mobiles.
    can u suggest any reason why I cannot open certain websites through router?

    • I think there might be problem with DNS Servers. Set it to 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4 in your laptop. and in router untick Enable dns relay option

  • Anirban Mitra

    Hello Srijit, I have a BSNL Broadband connection. I wish to by a router (with modem). Will the same router work if I use Alliance Broadband instead of BSNL? Also do I have to log in to the Alliance page everytime I switch off the modem? Please enlighten me. Thanks, Anirban.

    • A router with a modem will not work with BSNL. If you switch of the router ehile using alliance, u need to log in again.

      • Anirban Mitra

        Then what does a router with modem work with?(My BSNL connection is via modem).Please suggest me routers which are compatible with both BSNL and ALLIANCE, if there are such routers.

  • Moin Bhavnagri

    Hii Srijit,
    Recently bought dlink 605l router. When I try to open gateway 192.168.0.1 from Pc after connecting with lan cable the portal doesnt open.
    When I tried using wifi it opened and asked me to change the administration password, i did so. When I tried to open it again through wifi it says “Enter username ‘ while I cannot enter it.
    Please help me..!
    Thanks

    • That is a bug in their software. Connect from PC after u change PC ip to automatic.
      Also, check if firmware update is available or not for the model. This might get fixed.

    You are amazing brother… I just bought this 605L router.. I was facing some difficulties regarding the installation. Alliance was going to charge me Rs.500 for a technician. Then I came accross this blog.. This happens to have solution for every single problem I faced during installing.. You are amazing sir. I don’t know how to thank you..

    • I’m glad it helped you. This is the main reason of my blog, share the knowledge and empower others. 🙂 Don’t ever pay so much to any technician for just configuring a router, lots of cheaters are out there..

  • Sourav Sengupta

    Hi,
    While setting up of DIR 605L I am facing this problem.
    After I had input 192.168.0.1, I was prompted to choose language option. thereafter i was prompted to choose whether i was to setup the router manually or automatically. I chose manual. ThereafterI have been allowed to put in SSID, IP Address, Subnet M, D. Gateway, Preff. DNS, Altern. DNS, allowed to choose whether i wanted a secure connection or not…thereafter i was allowed to put in password….then the problem arose for which i have attached the print screen….
    the username : admin is inactive; only password is active
    when login is pressed…it is showing “Please input the User Name”

    Please help.

    • Do a reboot, if that doesn’t work hard reset and re configure. Make sure you check if any firmware updates are available.

      • Sourav Sengupta

        i did the same…no do
        firmware update is not available

  • Deepak Sarathy

    Hi, I know this is an old thread, but I hope you can help me. I’m having the same problem as a few others here, where the ISP’s connection directly into my PC’s Ethernet port gives me access, but not so when I go through the router.

    You’ve said something about assigning a static IP and a gateway and configuring PC’s IP to 192.168.0.2, but as a layman, I don’t know how to do that.

    Would really appreciate a step by step walkthrough.

    Hope you can reply.
