  • Hi
    i am using BSNL Penta and but unable to set the APN setting and failoure of net connect using Reliance Gsm Sim

    can u help me.

  • Sir,
    I hope you can help/guide me to use BSNL 3G(ZTE 180 model) data card for my Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7.0.
    My data card works fine on PC.
    While it was running on PC, I used dos command ipconfig/all and got the following out put.
    “Windows IP Configuration

    Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : personal-246f57

    Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :

    In order to configure my tablet, I need to fill in following information:

    Network SSID : bsnlnet or bsnlwap ?

    Security : None



    802, 1x EAP

    -which one

    ( If I select None, it doesn’t show window for password;Password window appears for other three alternatives- my difficulty is how to enter [BLANK] — just press a space and save?)

    If I create Wi-Fi connection using Network SSID ,security None, do I need to Modify network configuration?

    If I do, I get following windows to fill in:

    Proxy Setting :

    IP setting : DHCP


    If I select DHCP then there is no further settings.Otherwise I get

    IP address :

    Gateway :

    Network prefix length :

    DNS1 :


    Am I correct in filling these using data obtained by ipconfig/all above, with subnet mask giving network prefix length as 32 ( as gathered by Google search) ?

    Thanking you


  • I have a Karboon A92 with android jelly bean 4.2. It has 900 and 1800 MHz band. It works on 2.5G EDGE network. I can connect a OTG cable because it has micro USB socket. I have a Airtel (HUAWEI Mobile Broadband E1731) 3G USB modem . Can I use this on my A92 to get 3G internet speed just as I use it on a Tablet.

  • Sir,
