    Hi friends,

    Many of us here have BSNL Home 500C plan which boasts of unlimited data during 2:00 am to 8:00 am.
    So many people would like to know how to automate downloading during this time.
    This is what I do to automate connection/disconnection on my BSNL Home 500C Plan on Windows Vista!

    Remember you can additionally schedule your Downloader app or Torrent client.

    Step-Step tutorial by a_to_z124:-

    1-a) Open Notepad and paste the following code into it:-

    e.g rasdial "BSNL Broadband" a_to_z123 pass123word

    1-b) Save the file as "connect.bat". Make sure the extension is ".bat"

    2) Create another batch file named "disconnect.bat" in the same way and paste the following code into it:-

    e.g. rasdial "BSNL Broadband" /disconnect

    3) Open Task Scheduler by going to All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Task Sceduler

    4-a) Click on 'Create Basic Task' in the Actions pane on the right.

    4-b) Type a name for the connect action, e.g. "Connect at 2:00 am" and click 'Next'.

    What I'll suggest is that better to defer the connecting time by 1-2 mins due to issues with BSNL server not registering your connection in the free slot. Yes, believe me BSNL is dumb! They don't automatically stop counting data at 2:00 am instead you have to disconnect and reconnect yourself after 2:00 am to be on the safer side. It has happened with a lot of customers across India.

    4-c) Select 'Daily' from the Trigger list and click 'Next'.

    4-d) In this section just select the time when you want to connect to the internet (i.e. 1-2 mins after 2:00 am). Leave other values as they are.
    Click 'Next'.

    4-e) Select 'Start a Program' and click 'Next'.

    4-f) Browse to the 'connect.bat' file in the 'Program/Script' text-box and click 'Next'.

    4-g) Click 'Finish' and you task is created.

    5-a) Create another Basic Task in the same way for disconnecting at 8:00 am.

    5-b) Here just browse to the "disconnect.bat" file where it asks for the 'Program/Script'.

    6) That's it! You're done scheduling your internet connection.

    7-a) Additionally if you want to Shutdown your PC after 8:00 am then just create another basic task.

    7-b) When it asks for 'Program/Script' browse to "C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe"

    7-c) In the 'Add Arguments' box type "/s /f" without the quotes.
    Click 'Next' and click 'Finish'.

    8) Now you've also scheduled your PC to shutdown at a particular time!
