SingTel DSL Broadband settings

If you’re a heavy internet user connected with SingTel Broadband via the supplied 2WIRE modem/router, you probably already know that the hardware is crap and tends to spaz out when you open too many connections. Getting your own ADSL modem/router is an ideal solution, but unless it auto-configures to the network like SingTel’s does, you’re looking at some lengthy trial and error while trying to get it connected.

I had that experience myself a few months ago, and had to look all over the net for the settings (on my iPhone, no less) because SingTel’s helpdesk wouldn’t “support third-party hardware”. That’s funny, because when I called to ask for the admin console password on the 2WIRE router (to enable Modem Only mode, which I could use with my previous Linksys router), I was told that they couldn’t give it to me, and I had to call 2WIRE’s distributor in Jurong or something. In the end, 2WIRE told me to get the password from SingTel. It was hopeless.

I’d be satisfied if this helps just one person out there.

DSL connection settings from my 3com modem/router:

Protocol: PPPoA

Username: xxxxx@singnet

Connect Type: Always Connected

Idle Time: 20 (min)

MTU: 1492

VPI/VCI: 0/100

Encapsulation: VC MUX

QoS Class: UBR

PCR/SCR/MBS: 4000/4000/10
