    Default Wireless router for BSNL SmartAX 882 Type I modem

    Hi,

    I have a BSNL SmartAX 882 Type I modem and I need a powerful wireless router to go with that. I am looking for a best possible match. Budget max limit 2500 rupees.

    Please suggest my options.

    Thanks,
    Aritra

    You can get wifi modem + router for Rs. 1800 + tax from BSNL. You can also avail it for rent for Rs. 80 per month. If you use a third party wifi router you won't get support from BSNL in case of repair. If you are particular about a new router, try one from Netgear.

    Mention the range ( radius) of wifi facility, and height/s involved.
    ANY N type wifi router with twin antennae should work for reasonable distance.

    I used one netgear DG 834G(Wireless 1x) before. My experience is pretty bad, I was disappointed with its broadcasting capabilities.

    Also, I should have mentioned explicitly, I do not intend to buy BSNL router/modem, I just want to use my SmartAX MT882 Type I and plug it with a powerful wireless router to go with it.

    So, please suggest based on these requirements.

    Radius would be 5 - 10 metres, I live in a 3 storey bldng, the router will be located at the ground floor and I need to access it from 3rd floor or roof(4th).

    I guess I'm being a bit naive about the specification
    So which N type router with twin antennae you think I should go for, my budget is max 2500 rupees.

    Default Need Range Extender, help!

    Hi guyz,
    Thanks for ur support, I ended up with a Belkin N 150 router, but the problem is, the router is located at the basement and my room is on 3rd floor, so the signal is pretty poor(always). I need some way to boost the range so that I can access it from 3rd or 4th floor.
    Please suggest a list of possible range extender for wireless N network.

    Thanks,
    Aritra.

    Thank u all
    I finally have purchased a Belkin 150 N Wireless router

    I am planning for a router too because my MT882 is not working with Windows 7.

    Do I need separate drivers for that or is MT882 not compatible with Windows 7 ?

    1.
    MT882 may not work in USB mode for which drivers may not be available for Windows 7.

    2
    You can try the LAn port and check up the drivers for the ethernet card in your computer.
    Update drivers , or get a lan card compatible for windows 7.
    Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
    Device Type - Network Adapters
    Manufacturer - Intel
    Location - PCI bus 6, device 8, function 0
    Device Status - This device is working properly

    Default Huwaei Ax MT 882 USB drivers for Windows 7.

    Why revive an old thread when the subject/title does not match ?
    You could have opened a new thread:
    No member/user will be happy, if USB drivers are discussed in this thread!

    Huwaei Ax MT 882 USB drivers for Windows 7.


    (1)
    Usually Windows 7 will search for the drivers .
    Just connect the modem "usbport cable to Lan Port of computer.
    correction as pointed out in post No.9. Error Regretted.
    goes to USB PORT of computer.
    What error message you get ?
    (2)
    If you are willing to spend $5 or $10 ( about Rs 250to Rs 500) for ONLINE download, search in drivers.com. etc.
    Para two:
    For wireless mode:
    Do you have a WLAN adapter installed in your desktop or laptop?
    (3)
    Check application "Connectify " for Windows 7/Xp/Vista.
