    Its not 6 month old thread! Its hardly two month old. I usually close the thread if I get the solution. Since I had not got the solution, I was waiting if someone can come up with something (just as you did!).

    Btw, you have a valid point there-firmware upgrade. May be even I should try the same at my end. Will get back to you.

    Cheers!

    Hi Saivin,

    Issue for me on windows stands resolved
    First for me as I told I had the BSNL UTStarcom WA3002G4 modem .
    So when I see the datasheet on the site of utstar for this class of modems,
    I see that this modem mentions only 64 or 128 bit WEP as security standard.
    Highly possible that your modem too is not supporting WPA/WPA2.
    I would say try WEP and form most practical purposes it should be ok.
    Also after you establish a WEP connection if your connection keeps dropping then as I did on windows I dropped the router SSID named wireless connection and reconfigured the same again and after that voila I have no such problems . True wireless across rooms.

    Hope these tips solve your problems too .
    Cheers !!

    Oh yes, I should have mentioned, WEP works for me too. I just was trying WPA/WPA2 coz, it was advised that WEP is not very strong and that we use WPA/WPA2. But as you said for our day-to-day home computing, WEP should be ok. What can we do if our hardware is not capable of implementing certain standards.

    Earlier, I had googled for firmware upgrade after your advise but only found from forum discussions that UTStarcom is not very customer-friendly company (like many others)...

    Anyway, thanks buddy. Hope our discussion would benifit someone.
