Lightbulb Airtel Broadband Query


I need some help

I went in for airtel broadband connection since bsnl service was non existant. I have a few questions. Can somebody help

1. The duffer who came to install (i was not at home at that time), has not given the login and password. He has configured it to be connected automatically. How do i get the login and password and more important, how do i change the password.

2. The modem/router they have installed is 450BX1. I have set WPA key. I am able to connect from both my mobile (E51) and office laptop. I gave the key first time but subsequent times it connects automatic. How do i change this so that i am asked to enter the password each time i login. i would want to change my WPA key often and hence the question.

3. Where and how do i check my broadband usage.

thanks for your help. mods, if there is any other thread on the same topic, please do merge

1. Usually the user name is "City STD code" + "Phone no" like 01141511234 in case of a user from Delhi and password usually is "Password". Try it, it should work

2. Change you password in router, both will ask password once they'll not be able to connect via old password

3. You need to register with MyAirtel, register page link is at homepage.

1) Call up the duffer and find out, account password change will require login into airtel site (atleast thats the way it works with bsnl), then the same password has to be entered into the modem, settings saved and modem restarted.

2) All this is done through the modem set up utility/web page, type in on your browser you should get a login window, and once you enter the user name (admin) and password it will open the modem settings edit window. In this window you can make your changes.

3) Not sure how it works for Airtel.
