Default Anyone tried connecting both USB and ethernet interface to Beetel 220 modem ?

Hi Techians, Has anyone attempted to connect both the USB and ethernet interfaces on the Beetel 220 modem for accessing internet ? this way, you can connect 2 PCs without going for a router.

Yes, you can.
If I remember right, you just need to fiddle around with the DHCP to assign the IPs.
But I guess this is seriously OT though.

I have a Beetel 220BXI modem. The ethernet cable is connected to the desktop and the USB is used to connect to my laptop. No change in anything. Just plugged and browsed. :-)

Now I have got a long term loaner on a wireless BSNL modem - need to figure how to set that guy up...

Default @joecherian

@joecherian: I agree this is the wrong section but here is the answer.

Yes you can do what you are trying to. I also had the same issue a couple of days ago when me and my wife both needed to login to the office networks at the same time using our lappies.
All you need is the USB modem driver's disc and to make you access safer you can get a static IP assigned to your system from TCP properties and enter the prefered DNS Server as given by your service provider.
Once you have all this, enter the network setting like IP and DNS in the Network Properties->TCP Properties and then check the LAN connection. Then the USB conenction will need the driver to be installed. So connect the USB cable and then install the drivers using the disc and you are done. The same TCP settings will hold good for both USB and LAN.
Hope this helps cheers:.

Now for the answer, Yes you can. Just configure it as PPPoE and not bridging.

That way ADSL will connect on its own and each PC will be assigned IP by DHCP running on ADSL modem.
