    Hi Ravi,

    I am using BSNL modem for surfing using Airtel connection.
    Though I configured it, whenever I power it down..the configuration settings get reset and again I need to restore it.

    Do you have any idea why it gets reset whnenever modem is powered down?

    • Admin says:

      Sounds like hardware problem. Reset your modem to factory default, and then apply new settings. After you have applied new settings, save and reboot modem.
      You can also try upgrading firmware of the modem.

      You can also cal Airtel customer care at 198 and ask for help. I must admit, Airtel has good customer care service.
