Some Tata Indicom Wimax BroadBand Tricks & Tips

Hi Guys. I have been using Tata's wimax connection for a while. Many people said they had horrible experience with this connection. I too had Frequent disconnection,Slow speed,Downtime for days,etc on the beginning. But now its running so smooth and i never had a single minute downtime for almost 3 months. May be they might have improved their service OR the customization i did worked better than their default settings. I really dont know. So try this with your own risk if you have bad internet from wimax connection.


Remove unwanted Base stations:

This is the most important thing. I belive having more than one channel confuse the device to select which one is best :D. Some times i saw it selecting a channel which have less CINR value. So i figured that this could be a MAIN factor to slow the internet.

To login to your antenna, Set your Local area connection settings to

IP : 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1

After changing your LAN's TCP/IP settings , reconnect the cable from your antenna to your PC.

Now open http:\\192.168.1.1 in your favourite browser.

You will be prompted by a login screen. login using

username: root
password: telsimawl

Now u will see telsima wilan2010 Homepage. Click Advanced settings--->Scanner Channel. Notice the page carefully for 2minute and find out the best station by the CINR value(If the best CINR is below 15,Contact Customer care. 20+ is fine). Keeping that, delete the rest base stations.

Just in case you messed up, these are the default values for bangalore. You may write yours down before deleting.

Name Frequency Bandwidth
bs1 3316000 3000
bs2 3366000 3000
bs3 3319000 3000
bs4 3369000 3000

If Rs 200 Per month isn't a big deal, Apply for Static IP:

Ya. With static IP , Tataindicom enables you to port forward which helps increase speed in torrent,etc. Also as static IP customer, you get prior support.

If you using router,

If you using router , make sure the Smart QOS is disabled. [This Smart QoS improves your VoIP voice quality or streaming by ensuring that your VoIP or streaming traffic is prioritized over other network traffic, such as FTP or Web.] For best performance of surfing,downloading, Keep it disabled. You may find this settings under advanced tab. Refer router manual for more info :)

Sort out the wires once in a while:

Just make sure the wire from your antenna isn't twisted and messed with power wires. Keep it neat without knots,twists,etc.

Note;
Use http://www.speedtest.net to check your internet speed if you want to know the speed of your internet. Its the best one i ever used.

If you have any doubts , Post it in comment (with your email id if possible). I will assist you if i can.

My result on 384 Plus plan. [384kbbs with Static IP]

  1. Web casting, or broadcasting over the internet, is a media file (audio-video mostly) distributed over the internet using streaming media technology. Streaming implies media played as a continuous stream and received real time by the browser (end user). Streaming technology enables a single content source to be distributed to many simultaneous viewers. Streaming video bandwidth is typically calculated in gigabytes of data transferred. It is important to estimate how many viewers you can reach, for example in a live webcast, given your bandwidth constraints or conversely, if you are expecting a certain audience size, what bandwidth resources you need to deploy.

    To estimate how many viewers you can reach during a webcast, consider some parlance:
    One viewer: 1 click of a video player button at one location logged on
    One viewer hour: 1 viewer connected for 1 hour
    100 viewer hours: 100 viewers connected for 1 hour…

    Typically webcasts will be offered at different bit rates or quality levels corresponding to different user’s internet connection speeds. Bit rate implies the rate at which bits (basic data units) are transferred. It denotes how much data is transmitted in a given amount of time. (bps / Kbps / Mbps…). Quality improves as more bits are used for each second of the playback. Video of 3000 Kbps will look better than one of say 1000Kbps. This is just like quality of a image is represented in resolution, for video (or audio) it is measured by the bit rate.
