Steps for troubleshooting

1. I am not able to Browse.

a) Check that ADSL line is properly connected, CPE is powered on and ADSL link LED is glowing in stable condition.

b) Check that LAN cable is properly connected to PC and LAN link LED is glowing in stable condition. If LAN LED is not stable then check that LAN cable is connected properly or replace the cable and check. In case the LAN cable is connected to LAN switch or HUB, you have to use a cross cable. If the LAN LED is still not glowing, then veify that LAN card is properly installed with suitable driver or get the help of your computer service person for doing so. If you connected USB port, verify USB port LED.

c) If all the physical installation is correct but still you are not able to browse. Then check that- i. The TCP/IP setting are configured as desired with correct gateway address and DNS server IP addresses. To verify open the DOS window and type ping it should give output ‘Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms ttl="64’.">

d) If still it is not working, then login to CPE configuration page ( through Internet Explorer.

e) Observe the information displayed on Home page. Note whether DSL status is showing as connected. Click on Status->Modem status and verify the US margin and DS margin, the values should be more than 10.

f) Click on Status->Connection status and verify that the PVC0 is in connected state and IP address is allotted. Verify the disconnect message displayed and inform BSNL.

2. I am not able to send the mails using Outlook Express.

a) Probably you have not coinfigured dataone email in your Outlook Express.

b) You have configured multiple Email accounts ( e.g. VSNL mail account) in your Outlook Express and default account for outgoing mail is other than Dataone Mail account. Some ISPs do not allow their SMTP access from network of other ISPs. Therefore you should make Dataone Mail as default account for all outgoing mails.

c) Our SMTP server needs authentication. Make sure you have ticked the ‘ My server needs authentication’ in account properties while configuring the Outlook Express.
