As an online shopper you might already know that flipkart doesnt provide coupon codes. Buts they have an affiliate program. I just thought of becoming one so that we can both benefit. As a user you get 50% of what I get. Just search for the product that you want in the toolbar widget on the right of this site.(Note it doesn’t work with Ad Block Plus enabled) and buy the product from Flipkart. Current commissions for May are as below. Please send me your order id and email address using the contact form. Once my account gets credited, I’ll send you flipkart vouchers equivalent to 50% of the percentage that I get.
My post at https://sunish.net/2007/10/25/bsnl-gprs-configuration seems to be one of the most popular pages in spite of the fact that the site was not updated for a long long time.
The most important parameter to be set is the APN or Access Point Name.
The settings are as follows
APN : bsnlnet
Username : Not Required
Password : Not Required
Dial up number : *99#
If you are using the software provided by the phone manufacturer like nokia suite and if its updated it will automatically update the settings with the correct apn which is now bsnlnet and earlier was bsnlsouth for southern states.
On windows to connect to the internet using bluetooth or usb drivers has to be installed and configured. Once the drivers are installed, going to device manager(type devmgmt.msc and click OK at the run prompt obtained by pressing Win+R ) will show the corresponding modem installed under modems, similar to Standard Modem over Bluetooth link shown in the screen shot below.
Click on Properties of the Modem, click on advanced tab.
Enter extra initialization settings as AT + CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”bsnlnet”
The above steps are required only if you get a PPP link error message with error code 734.
Now create a new dial up connection, on windows 7 open Networking and Sharing centre
- Click On Connect to the Internet and click next.
- Select Dialup in How do you want to connect and click next.
- Enter *99# as dialup number and leave username and password as blank.
Use this connection to connect to the internet.
I have a HP dv6395 laptop (should be applicable to the whole HP dv6000 series) and it comes with a remote. Once in a while it just stops working. The ultimate problem solving technique of resatrting windows doesn’t solve this problem. Usually whenever there’s a problem with any IR remote, I use the digital camera technique to ensure that the IR light actually comes from the remote. In this case the RC was actually woking and I couldn’t find anything else wrong. The related services were working, but none of the functions were actually executed by the OS. Powering off and removing the power supply too didn’t work.
Finally I had this logical intuition, where I thought that since the remote can power on the laptop even if its powered off, unless I remove the battery the IR sesning circuit will not be reset. That worked, removing the battery and then inserting it back restored the IR functionality.
