Secure your NTC ADSL, how to tips

Last weekend some guys here at TechSansar.com were trying to fool Nepal Telecom’s ADSL Broadband Internet Services and we all are still surprised how easy it was to hack NTC’s ADSL. Though we are not going to teach you how to crack or hack or guesstimate ADSL username and password, we are surely going to tell you to strengthen your ADSL internet connection so that others would not be able to connect via your credentials.

Nepal Telecom has implemented a port or line binding feature so that the ADSL username is tied to the particular telephone number being subscribed to.

Hence, even if somebody knows your default username & password of ADSL (which is, again let us say, anybody could guess & call it ADSL hacking!) can not use in their own telephone number HOWEVER they can alter your details at ADSL customer self-care called UshaComm Web Services at https://192.168.117.7:8443/ISCare/NewAge/H_home.jsp

There are enough proofs for hacking NTC ADSL, not only we (guys at TechSansar.com) but also few technocrat and computer crack(as they liked to be called as) visitors have shared their views. So, it’s time to safeguard your ADSL connection. Don’t let you pay for your ADSL line while you can’t use it yourself. There might be so many blunders that you might be committing unknowingly.

The first time we experienced the ADSL connection from Nepal Telecom, they give the same username and password to all of their visitors. And changing the NTC ADSL password is not that easy stuff, one has to go thru a lot of steps in Telecom’s site. Create a new a/c into their online customer center (which rarely worked for us, the page was never opened in fact), fill up all requirements (most of which are so confusing ones) and others to complete the steps.

So, TechSansar Team suggest you to change your ADSL password as soon as you feel like you’re unsafe or just for a fun.

The other problem might be with the Router which connects the two networks ie the NTC’s server and Your home computer network. Ensure that you are safe with your Wi-Fi connectivity. Encrypt it or allow certain MAC addresses or devices which you want to. (More on this on later articles with video)

Is your Wi-Fi unsecured? The Homegroup or Workgroup in Windows can bring you a lot of jeopardy if your not password safe. Change or ensure them to be @#$%*.

Another one is with your landline or PSTN telephone number. Always register to NTC ADSL broadband internet service with the number that is least know to others, in case if you have more than one landline numbers. You’ll know that you’ll not repent on doing this later.

We have a lot of security related and ADSL optimization articles undergoing and already published. So, visit them to help yourself or write to us.

    I am afraid why Nepal Telecom is not serious over its users data.

    They should have dedicated support and service. Myself face lots of problem with this service initially, but now I am conscious.

    lol, so did u guys really fooled NTC, coz’ it sounded that way.
    Hacked into their server or just messed with the subscribers router with easy guessing username and passwords..

    i think the problem is with the customers unaware of these things and not wih NTC. They should secure their routers them self.

    and what is another problem u stated..

    “The other problem might be with the Router which connects the two networks ie the NTC’s server and Your home computer network.”

    Through This Page I want to share my bitter
    experience in regard with ADSL that is being provided by NT.I am using
    ADSL 128kbps internet.Before,internet was quite good,but now it has
    become really slow.I tested my bandwidth speed with many speed test
    websites (like speedtest.net).all i found is that,the result of the
    s…peed test did not hike more then 92 kbps(its download speed,well i
    actually didnt care about upload speed).

    I dont know what is the main reason behind it.So i want the related
    personal eye upon this .ARE WE BEING CHEATED??Why arent we being
    provided with actually speed?

    I want to request all the member(ADSL users) of this page to once test
    their bandwidth speed.

  • suman

    ya man..same thing is frm here ………iam frm parsa n my connection speed is 128kbps but download speed is only 14 kbps we should say NTC people for that

    • rojesh

      actually its not hack….we donnot need to write a code for hacking and cracking ….juss social engineering will work…he he …
      @ nepali hero and suman 12 kBps is little less and 14 kBps is good speed cause 128kilobits only gives(128/8)= 16kilobytes max of download speed……( 1 bytes=8 bits ).. and 128kbps and 128kBps are different…………ntc is offering 128kbps and your are downloading at kBps…

  • niraj

    yes its in kilobits that NT is hooking up us to the net…..actually the d/l speed should go upto 16KBps (kilobytes) per second the speed is about 20% less because of QoS which makes the router or your computer reserve some bandwidth.

      Dear Roshan, Please contact with the NTC office where you pay your ADSL subscription fees, tell them to change your default password. It is very easy to guess your default password once your phone number is known. Change your password ASAP.
      Regarding your router configuration, also change the password of the admin in your router. And put some encryption over air (ie wireless). If you still need help tell us.

      well to stop hacking just change your default password. and well if you leak your password then some may wait till you switch off your connection.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002760066363 Ajen Dongol

    do you guys really think that this is a hack.??? well then just change the password .. its really easy to change the passwork. just open site ntc.net.np and click on change passowrd. you will be transfer to ntc personal site. there type in username and password and sign in. under the service click on your adslusername . under service detail  click change password and change your password.. its. easy.. but remember if you forget your new password only way to get it back is to contact ntc it self.

    note: for login username and passwords check your payment bill of adsl and check for wsc id ie username and password will be something like wsc_****** where * are random numbers. and remember after you click change password you have to add exception if you are opening for the first time..

    well i think it helps with changing your adsl password

    Ajen Dongol, Thanks a lot for your explanation!

  • vivek

    Ntc adsl is also slow here at butwal…though they call it 192 kbps package,the download speed is very much fluctuating..it rarely hooks up at 21 kpbs which is its actual speed.else it is always lower than 16..i found utl to be better than adsl cuz the download speed was mostly constant @16 kbps..adsl is a fail and just not worth money…

  • Ikiller

    When I see the security behind NTC adsl Username and Password, It makes me laugh. The worst security.

    Pathetically NTC. They cannot handle technologies. Somebody else comes and deploy services like ADSL, WiMAX even old PSTN; and NTC is no more capable to handle them in a couple of years or so. It is seriously our leadership and management lackings.

  • pramithas

    hello i have couple of questions… expecting for your help…

    (1) is it possible to access a same landline connection with 2 routers?

    (2) how to change the adsl username and password we enter in our routers?
    help would be appreciated..

    • http://ekendraonline.com/ Ekendra

      (1) is it possible to access a same landline connection with 2 routers?
      Landline telephone or PSTN is splitted onto a regular telephone service and ADSL data service by a splitter. The data part of the cable is to be inserted onto your Router. Hence, it is not possible to access a same landline connection with 2 routers, however you can connect another router to your first router either to extend the connectivity area or act as a bridge.

      (2) how to change the adsl username and password we enter in our routers?
      By default NTC’s ADSL username and passwords are same. One can’t change username but we suggest you to change password right away, by visiting ADSL’s self-care support page. If you find it difficult, you can visit the nearest NT counter to change it. The following links have a complete tutorials on that:
