Using BSNL DataOne Type-2/4 Modem with Airtel Broadband

I had a tough time configuring my BSNL provided type-2 Modem with Wi-Fi, to use it with Airtel Broadband. So I'm posting it here, so that others don't have to go through the pain.

All these settings should work with Model No. WA3002G4, Dataone Modem, manufactured by UTStarcom.

The key is in setting the WAN setting correctly.
