How to setup or Configure ZTE ZXDSL 531B Modem for Reliance Broadband
Few days back i applied for the Reliance Broadband and they provide me with the small ZTE ZXDSL 831 Modem with only one Ethernet Port and without WI-Fi.
But this single Ethernet can not provide me with my requirements as in my office i have 3 laptops, 2 PCs and 3-4 Wi-Fi enable Smart Phone. So i think of using my old ZTE ZXDSL 531B Modem for this purpose.
I searched a lot to confiqure my ZTE ZXDSL 531B modem for Reliance Broadband. But after a 2 day search, i did not get any perfect solution. After two days of working on this modem, i finally confiqured this modem and now running internet using it on 8 devices with both WI-Fi and LAN.

This configuration will work on all modems. You just have to configure your modem with the same configuration that i have done on ZTE ZXDSL Modem on this article.

So I thought of sharing the same confiquration to setup ZTE ZXDSL 531B Modem for Reliance Broadband.

  2. Dharmesh,
    I have the same ZXDSL 531B, but I am unable to configure this with reliance. My problem is the default ip of this modem is and I guess reliance uses the same. So, when I access my modem I have to take out the reliance cable from the modem to reach to the administration page of my modem. So I can’t get the broadband login page ( of reliance while configuring the modem and vice versa.

    So I Changed the default ip of my modem in order to have access to both at a time but so far I have been unsuccessful. I have changed the ip and subnet mask in almost all possible ways. What really happens is I can access the broadband login page from multiple systems ( but once logged in, the other system doesn’t connect to the internet but redirects me to the broadband login page again( So If I login here I get the typical error of the session being not disconnected yet and force me to have access to the internet from only 1 system.

    Please help me out and do let me know if you have additionally configured any DNS,DHCP or anything else. Thanks!

  10. Hello Dharmesh!!

    I have set this modem for reliance broadband in jaipur as per your steps. It works fine both on lan and wan.

    Problem comes here that I have one more modem and me using it in Hyderabad location for Beam fibre broadband, which is as same as reliance, it also needs a user id and password to enter for internet. I have done the same setting for the same modem as one working with me in Jaipur. As you have said many times that the login page asking braodband provider setting will be same for all. But I am not able to access internet here.

    When I do enter the cable directly in my lappy it works, but when I do same via modem, it doesn’t and via wifi it shows connected but that yellow triangle comes. Got fed up of this. Now please tell me if you could do something in this case.

  11. As you have asked for the modem manufacturer and model i.e. ITI DNA-a211-i is the modem in Hyderabad which is not working as it should be. Please let me know how to make it work for wifi uses.

    And the one, working fine in Jaipur is ZTE ZXDSL 531B.

    • Did you configure your modem correctly ? If you are able to access internet on LAN.

      Then you must try to enter IP and DNS , this may resolve your problem.

      Go to network and sharing center>> Click on your connected network.
      Go to properties >> TCP IP4 >> Properties. Enter the following IPs

      Ip :
      Subnet Mask :
      Default Gateway :
