Setup Singnet 2 Wire Modem

Singnet does not provide a detail instruction on how to setup the Singnet 2 Wire 2701HGV-E Modem. I am providing you a detail explanation on how to setup your modem for Broadband Connection. It is specially created for all novice Singnet Broadband users. You do not even need to use the CD they provide as you will need to disable your anti virus and firewall program in order for it to work.

Setting up 2 WIRE Modem(For First Time User)

You will need to start with the hardware setup first.

  1. Connect Power Adaptor Cable to the Power Port on the Modem
  2. Plug your telephone cable to Phone Line Port on Modem and to your telephone socket point
  3. Connect LAN/Ethernet/RJ45 cable to LOCAL ETHERNET port (can plug to any port) and the other end to your computer
  4. Power on your Modem

You need to wait for it to load up and the Broadband Light turns Stable. If the Broadband light is blinking, please contact Singnet. At this point, the Internet light will still be RED .

The next step is to setup the Modem so that you can start surfing the internet.

Modem Setup Configuration

  1. Modem and computer is now connected via LAN Cable
  2. Open your browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Opera
  3. Type 192.168.1.254 in the URL Box
  4. You should see INTERNET CONNECT/DISCONNECT on the left hand side
  5. Click on the link

    PASSWORD: broadband password (provided by Singtel)
    CONFIRM PASSWORD: broadband password (provided by Singtel)
  7. Click CONNECT
  8. Internet light should turn from Red to Green

You should be ready to start surfing the internet once you got the Internet Light turn to Green. If Internet light is still RED, it means broadband password is wrong.

Singtel Multi Sim Card FAQ

Singtel has launched a multi sim card function not long ago. Many users though they can combine different numbers to be use on one sim card but this is not the fact. You can only use one mobile number only but it allowed you to use it on different handsets, blackberry and laptop at the same time.

The definition of the Multi Sim card is as follows:
Multi-SIM service enables you to
have just one mobile line and multiple SIM cards (up to max. 4 SIM
cards). Now you can enjoy the convenience of using one mobile number
across multiple handsets or devices to make simultaneous data transfers
while talking on the phone.

You will be issued multi sim cards up to a max of 4 sim cards. At any one time, all Multi-SIM
cards can make outgoing voice calls/video calls/SMS/MMS. Only 1 of the
Multi-SIM card (term as Preferred Card) will be able to receive voice
calls/video calls/SMS/MMS. ALL the Multi-SIM cards@ will be able to use
data simultaneously. So, you can make a voice call while working /
surfing using a PDA/laptop/Blackberry.

Broadband on Mobile Data Limit

There is a 50GB limit on most of the Singtel Broadband on Mobile Plan. But I assure you that most users will not be able to hit this 50GB limit unless you downloads 2 movies everyday. After using for a few months, my highest record is only 12GB. There has been no drop connections during the downloading of data or usage. You can also use the software provided by Singtel to monitor your data usage.

The Broadband on Mobile is service by Singtel Mobile and not Singnet. For assistance, please call 1626 and not 1610 which is for Singnet.
