Configure a NETGEAR N300 wireless ADSL2+Modem Router- Model DGN2200v3 with Airtel in India

After hours of hundreds of blunders, I managed to configure the Netgear N300 which was brought for Rs3300 and came with a 2 year warranty(The box price was Rs5600). I am uploading 30 pages of the snips I took to save the setting that were configured. Hope this helps. Call your airtel customer care-18001031111 and ask them for your username and password.

This is the modem + router-
The make-
Key in the username and password the customer care gave you.

Don't forget to backup your settings in the backup option, if you need to reset your device, just upload the saved settings file and your good and ready.

Life with its eternal wheels decides to smite you down with experience and you age in wisdom. The mind grows heavy and your eyes look out with the weariness of an old women. The parts of your body have started to age unevenly and you look chaotic, like a child's caricature. Nothing in the world permeates your empty soul. You try playing roles, giving yourself ambitions, applying red rouge to look alive, making it seem like your walking the journey with all the reverence of a pilgrim. The burden of existence, when experience has taught you well about the parched wall at the end of the tunnel. You reach it and your skin crack like parched earth, slowly you cease to matter anymore and the smell of burnt flesh dies out. The earth receives you in her cradle and the trees sing their lullaby.

Commercialization is a new way capitalists colonize our minds. We strive our entire lives towards acquiring luxuries that become out of style in a year. Quality of life is diluted and human beings are looked upon only as consumers or as potential untapped market. It is very easy to acquire things to consume, this makes us hold only temporary value and a fleeting sense of appeasement leading to existentialist depression. Excessive commercialization has made human beings indifferent and numb to humanistic values. If a person decides to be revolutionary and not give in to commercialization, is such a stand possible, whether we like it or not we are constantly being bombarded by consumer advertisements. Human beings are becoming a monstrous presence on earth, being driven by commercialization, we seem unable to give Nature, Animals and minorities like Tribals, any place to call their own. We grow and grow like a cancer cell only consuming and not giving much to sustain the planet we live on. Our own vices have started to kill us and limit out life span in the form of non- communicable disease. Because of the damage we do to our environment, nature will fail to sustain us one day and the human will become extinct, making the world a utopia again.

Blue as can be,
Why does one feel blue...
Dug myself into a pit of dark blues...
I aspire to articulate better,
but speech now comes to me only in fragments.
Why does one's bones become weary,
Why do the young stagnate?
Why do i seclude myself from everyone?
Is the walk through life's roads this tiresome and meaningless...

Masquerade to the sounds of the night, when eternity holds endless power and bliss as bountiful as the skies.... Being the many that you are...

''“I surround myself with silence. The silence is within me, permeates me, my house, reaches beyond the surfaces of the outer walls and into the bordering woods. It is one silence, continuous from within me outward in all directions: above, beneath, forward, rearward, sideward. In the silence I listen, I watch, I sense, I attend, I observe. I require this silence. I search it out.”
-Alice Koller

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster,

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

-"One art"- Elizabeth Bishop

Have you ever thought about how insane it must be to be one of those characters stuck within a book, or a work of art like the mona lisa who had to look enigmatic forever. What a prison to be caught within a canvas never being able to change or come out. What madness to play the same story over and over again to every reader, being a slave to their subjective imaginations which twisted, dissected and interpreted in every direction.

Human relationships kills innocence- mans relationships are also doctored towards a manipulative goal- this gives man too much sight into the aspects of human relationships which was before not too superficially cognitive- thus giving man the ruthlessness to manipulate his relationships towards only production and gains- this alienates him from the people he manipulates- and also alienates him from himself by undermining the mysteries of human relationships and interactions- thus making him assume an existential view of life assuming that all in life is known and that his search ends...

On why christianity is a bliss?

This world often disappoints individuals in their quest for bonds, soulfulness and meaning. But when one turns to Christ he/she is able to feel the everlasting love and bond god shares with man and so even when there is nothing else(which is the case in most realities), there is god, this somehow gives man an illusion to live on inspite of the pathos of his existence. In this way, Christ is merciful, as it atleast gives hope for passions to live on, and this hope keeps the core of the soul alive.
"Selfishness and Selflessness exist hand in hand"- Selflessness no matter how pure will always be a pleasure giving mechanism. There's another kind of selflessness, the superficial selflessness derived purely for public exhibition.
Man's mind and nature is fickle, thus a government is necessary- institutions and objectivity is essential- subjectivity will lead to chaos- because man and his generations are fickle...

it is nicer to feel silent alone, than to feel so in a room full of people, i prefer the former.

“Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torment of man”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

Wisdom doesn't come without the heart... wisdom is humane, the heart is a representation of humanity... the heart that goes along with real wisdom is not materialistic, nor is it materialistic in an emotional way, it is patient, kind and humane and a true index of what we are in the purity of our souls and beings...

maze of nothingnesss...


Forgot there was an eternal up in an abyss... *shivers*... maybe if we all got used to space, and didn't have the intellectual arrogance of wanting to know everything and comprehending it, the up or the down wouldn't be that eternal... would the sky seem eternal to a tiny bird?... wonder why human beings feel a sense of angst, maybe the materialism of happiness, sadness and a million other things enslave us into searching for a million destinies... But materialism doesn't mean not buying the shoe, materialism is buying the shoe and still feeling empty... you could buy a million things but at the end of the day if you feel a sense of fulfillment and meaning, then you have archived being non materialist, the true point lies in feeding the soul i suppose... we always starve it... whats the point in being a Gandhi, we cant fool ourselves for long as hypocrites... infact in today's world we are better off being ourselves, going on our petty quests and having our petty falls, than trying to renounce the world and go into a state of whateverness... When i think of abyss, i think of being underwater, in a deep sea, standing on the edge of a mountain top, and looking down, the gorges in seas are very deep and dark... Abyss (from Greek ἄβυσσος = "bottomless", "the bottomless pit") Nietzsche said, "When you look into the abyss, the abyss looks back into you." very deep, this quote... if you understand the spirituality that nature offers, the way a trees bark breathes and the way leaves talk and the way birds listen and look into your eyes, when you have enough silence in you to listen to those things around you, the world becomes blissful... If you ever understood the travelogue "The snow leopard", you can get this quote... And if you get this quote, you get god, and the way the god that we see in the old testament of the bible used to talk to people... But there's one thing, the western concept of existentialism is pessimistic and one of doom... My abyss is not one of fear of the dark, I guess I comprehend darkness as light too, l love the abyss just as I love god, nature and life.. The Indian understanding of maya and existentialism is one of hope and optimism, and its one of beauty, a way to comprehend every essence in life that is real... But i think there is no purpose to life, seeking for a purpose is seeking for materialism, maybe life is a journey, a journey where we make the best meaning out of sights, sounds and experiences... I mean once we leave this body we are just souls isn't it, souls whizzing by in eternal space, breathing...

This abyss falls endlessly...
God looking upon man with a smirk as man waits with eternal patience to see the bottom..

and we all wait...

Optimism is what makes the mind and heart weary, not pessimism..

When one settles one isn't exactly settling for a secure future, after endless wanderings, and the dreaded finding that in the end meaning doesn't exist outside or within oneself, one decides to go into a trance like state of lights and visions, as much as this could sound pessimistic, it is the ultimate state a being can enter in its existence... The eternal search for meaning and change becomes into a heap of ash once all the disillusion of new beginnings ends, and all what you are left with is existence, like the drop of fire hanging from the end of a wick...

Pessimism is the luxury of the powerful
