Yes you can use it with your another dsl modem .default lan subnet of ptcl modems have 192.168.1.0/24.

Steps required for wifi card:

1. go to your wifi modem page 192.168.1.1 then username=admin pass=admin or whatever you set.

2.then disable the DHCP server in wifi modem.

3.Go to lan setting then change its lan ip to 192.168.1.3 .

4.Now use an ethernet cable connected with lan port of dsl modem connect another end with lan port of wifi modem.

5.Now connect the telephone rj11 wire to only dsl modem(without wifi) only .

6.connect your laptop or wifi dongle with wifi modem by searching .

No with ptcl firmware router it is not possible but in routers like tplink or tenda there is a function of wireless bridgein it. By using that function you can bridge your wifi modem to nearby any wifi router for the internet if that is unprotected (with out wep or wpa…etc).

U CAN! EASILY!

just confirm me the items you have with model numbers!

@james... sorry for hopin in ur conversation!

Ya !

Giving general Idea This is how u would go about it

Ph. Line--->(PTCL DSL Modem) --------> Witribe Wirless modem ----))))) Any WLAN device

_______RJ-11_________________ RJ-45 ______________________ Wireless

Ip addresses:192.168.1.1 ____________ 192.168.1.100 ______________ Dynamic IP

Turn on DHCP on PTCl Modem Only.

Enable NAT.

[/quote] Modem is : An1020-25 and when i enable the NAT wireless become off.by the way what will happen if i configured the NAT ?

First phase::

1.First connect your pc or laptop with a wire to the lan port of ptcl modem.

2.now chek if internet is working fine.then open browser and write 192.168.1.1 in the address bar then username=admin paswd=admin or whatever u set.

3.Go to left side menu To The advanced setup then in LAN chek whether your dhcp is enable or not .if enable then write as start ip=192.168.1.2 end ip=192.168.1.254. then go nat option chek it enable or not if not then enable it.

4.now disconect the wire from ptcl modem . connect wire from lan port of witribe device.

Go to control panel then metwork and internet connection then double click on local area netwk then click on support at top and then click details then chek if you are getting ip from same subnet i.e of ptcl modem 192.168.1.x or not if not then just not the gateway of this device and place it in your browser .by default it should be 192.168.15.1.then write password wimax or witribe or whatever u set.

5.then go to Lan setting type option then please change its lan ip=to 192.168.1.4 subnet mask=255.255.255.0 then

6.now go to Dhcp option of the device and just disable it .

Second phase :

1. Now please turn on ptcl DSL modem . now take a patch cable rj-45 if u have otherwise buy it .it is easily available from computer accessories shop .Then connect it from lan port of ptcl modem to witribe device lan port.

2.Now turn on ur laptop and search wireless connection . Now u will find ur witribe device connect it and ur internet will work

thats all!!!!!!!!!

its done.

its done.

hope its working :) Gr8

AN 1020-25 and witribe both have built in wireless options, what the benefit using two wireless modems..he can use just one as for wifi connectivity.

or i am getting it wrong.
