Hi guys, today i am going to share with you the most important and useful information regarding PTCL DSL modem configuration. This is a common problem that our internet stops working and we have no knowledge about what to do. There are two methods of configuring PTCL DSL router.

1. Call 1236 Helpline:

One method id to call 1236 PTCL line anf ask them, they should configure you DSL modem remotely and the other method is to configure you modem manually.

2. Manual Method:

2nd method is to do manual configuration. First of all open Internet Explorer and write “” in address bar and press enter. There must not be any proxy setting in the internet Explorer. This will open a login window and will ask for username and password to access the router console. The default username and password for router is admin/admin. So write admin in username box and admin in password box and click on login button.
