Speed up your BSNL BroadBand [Guide]
1. For Reliability & Speed, Use following DNS Addresses:
A) On Dial-up or Bridge mode Broadband connections.
B) Automatic or Multi-user or PPPoE mode Broadband connection.
Login inside the Modem or Router Interface and enter the following DNS address
Primary DNS – 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 (Use any of these)
Alternate DNS – 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 (Use any of these but it should be different from Primary DNS)
3. Check Attenuation Value:
Attenuation value at Downstream must be less than 43 dB. See DSL Line Parameters in Modem Interface Page under the heading Overview or Device Info or Status or Statistics. If value is greater than 43 dB then insist for Change Phone Line (Drop Wire), Jumper, Vertical, DP or Pair. Broadband may work higher than 43 dB Attenuation but
affected speed, frequent disconnections and time out. Practically it’s not possible to provide a line with exact values of SNR & Attenuation. So variations could be there.
4. Choose Right MTU Size (Maximum Transmission Unit):
5. Always use ADSL Splitter:
6. Right Physical Layout:
8. Use Good Quality Wires:
For a Telephone having a Broadband connection, avoid PVC wires & other non-Telecommunication wires. Instead Use Drop Wire (Copper) supplied by BSNL.
9. Keep the line path away from any Interference:
10. Keep Connecting Terminals Clean:
13. Choose Right Media:
For faster speed, LAN (Ethernet) Cable should be preferred over Wireless medium & Wireless (Wi-Fi) should be preferred over USB Cable for Broadband connections.
14. Avoid Joints/Cuts:
Check Telephone Line/Drop wire for any Cuts & Cracks and replace the same. If possible Use single wire without any Joints.
15. Noise free Line:
17. Use Proper & High Quality Modem device:
Modems of different Companies or different Models of Modem have different Internal Circuitry and they read line parameters differently. So if Line parameters are not at recommended levels then change Modem to see the difference.
The Modems like Teracom, Huawei, UT-Star, TP-link, D-link, Netgear and Link Sys perform exceptionally well even in poor signal to ratio conditions also. That means if your house is at considerable distance from nearest BSNL exchange, naturally the line attenuation will be more and the cheap quality Modems would fail to perform reliably or read line profile.
18. Use UPS for Stable Power Supply:
20. Prefer PPPoE settings over Bridge Mode of Connection:
21. Check Line Profile:
The default Line Profile of a broadband connection (DSLAM port) is generally 2 Mbps (2048kbps). But sometimes speed problem comes in case of a 4 Mbps or higher plan & the speed does not cross beyond 2 Mbps. Then one needs to check whether the Line profile configured correctly as per the selected Broadband plan, as the wrong profile freezes the speed at certain level.
Always Enable NAT, Firewall and Default Route check-boxes (features) in the Modem configuration/interface page.
24. Remove unused Software Applications:
25. Install Good Anti-Virus:
26. Choose a better browser:
27. Install updates on Time:
28. Only one ADSL splitter per Line:
Never use Two ADSL Splitters on same line for any parallel phone connections. Instead use phone extensions for using multiple telephone connections.
29. Secure your Wi-Fi connection:
30. Keep a Tab on Torrent or Hidden Softwares:
