WiFi setup with wired Reliance Broadband

Quite a few of you have asked me how to setup WiFi with a Reliance broadband connection because the login portal seems to give some issues with WiFi router, so I made a video guide to show you how to setup the same.

Please note that this procedure works for wired reliance broadband connections also know as Broadnet, I did not test this setup with a Reliance WiMax connection as I don’t have access to the same but it should work on the same, for this to work you would need a Normal WiFi router which has a standard Internet / WAN port not the ADSL type WiFi router.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure you have properly logged out the reliance portal before disconnecting the modem and before you start this procedure.

    can i get both LAN and wifi caonnection from a same router??
    because my PC does not have a wifi reciever and i want wifi for my mobile and ipad…

  2. Ranjit

    Sure Rahul why not I have a similar setup my desktop has a wired LAN connection and my laptop / iPad using WiFi…. to answer your question yes both of them can function simultaneously.

  3. Ranjit

    Hi Rahul normally all WiFi routers generally have 4 LAN ports apart from the WiFi functionality, the cheaper routers have 100 Mbps ports and the higher end have a gigabit 1000 Mbps Lan ports.

    Hey i have one problem i took reliance broadband n then connected it with apple airport wifi device i am able 2 connect my laptop but cannot connect my iphone 4 with the wifi .please help me

  5. Ranjit

    Sarthak as you have a apple airport WiFi setup it is most probably set on dualband 2.4 and 5 Ghz setting try setting the router to single band 2.4Ghz and see if that solves the problem.

    I have set up the wifi setting like you have mentioned in the video. I use Linksys E1000 modem. I use laptop and galaxy S mobile to connect to internet. But the problem is again with the web login system. I have to login with my laptop to use internet even if I intend to use internet via mobile. Or else my broadband would not connect in mobile.
    So I have to run my pc. connect to the internet via their webportal and then use internet in mobile.
    Can the router be configured to automatically enter the credential and hence we just need to connect to the modem to use internet?

  7. Ranjit

    Rahul you need to login to the web-portal via a computer….. BTW no you cannot configure your router to auto logon to the reliance portal.

    Hi Ranjit,

    I use a reliace broadband (wireline). I want to connect my wifi mobile (micromax q7) to my wifi modem to use internet. Though I have located the network and paired it with the mobile I cannot open any website. I says “connection failed”. do I need additional settings in WAP profile ? how can I solve this problem? How will the login page appear automatically on mobile browser just the way it appears on your laptop when you are logged on to the network?

    please help.

    Hi Ranjit,

    I have ready many threads but I cdnt still find out how can share my Reliance Broadband connection on multiple wifi enalbed devices simultaneously.

    I have setup Like…. REliance RJ-11 >>> UT-300R2>>>>>RG45 Cable>>> Belkin Wireless f5d7234-4hv5( simailar to what you have shown in ur video but without antenna).

    I can use wireless to connect or to reach reliance page, get authenticated on the single device but can’t use on two difft laptops or Galaxy Note +Laptop, I have to logout from first device then only can login to the second device.

    Any suggestions ???

    hi Ranjit

    1st of all, thanks for the video. It was really helpful.
    Ok now to the point. Earlier I was having a broadband connection from Airtel. They provided me a Beetel 450 TC1 ADSL router+modem. Now I am switching over to reliance. Can you tell us step by step or make a video how to setup wifi with ADSL router for reliance broadband.
    U did mention about ADSL router but didnt tell the detail in this video.

    Thanks in Advance

    Dear Ranjit,

    Thank you very much. I tried the steps you mentioned worked beautifully with a Linksys router. Really appreciate the good work you are doing.

    I also tried to configure it with a Apple Airport Express without much success.

    Warm Regards
