    Question Best ADSL Modem Router in Market??

    Hi All,

    Just curious which ADSL Router is best in market??


    I tried Netgear, DLink & Huwai...Netgear provided gud service for more than a year but now its dead, Dlink is also not that reliable and in last now just using BSNL provided Huwai MT882.

    Huwai is OK types, but after an hourn so it gets hang & than I need to restart the router, its cauing me this sort of crapy problem for last 2-3 days!!

    we've 9000 Buisness plan and we're using it in office where we've 10-15 pc in LAN, all connected.


    I wud highly be grateful if anybody suggest any gud & reliable Modem!!



    thanks in advnce!!

    Linksys indeed makes the best routers in the consumer (home) segments. Cisco makes routers that are meant for the business segment. Linksys is a company aquired by Cisco. Cisco does not make Linksys routers. In fact Cisco or Linksys do not make the routers at all - the manufacturing is completely outsourced. But they have stringent quality checks.

    The downside is that Linksys routers are a bit expensive and in India even more so (because of duties, taxes, dealer margins, etc.). WRT54G is about $50 in USA and around Rs. 2500/- on eBay India.

    Note that WRT54G is not an ADSL modem; but a pure router.

    I have BSNL provided ADSL modem/router (UTStarcom UT-300R2U) and Linksys Wireless Router WRT54G.

    The query is for ADSL modem/router.

    I am pretty happy with UT-300R2U as it does the job. BSNL also provides Type IV modem/router (wireless) - Siemens SL2-141. It is priced at Rs. 1800 which I think is a pretty good deal.

    Some other facts about BSNL supplied modem/routers:

    a) BSNL modem/routers are not expensive.
    b) Consequently they are not the best. As I say myself quite often:

    *** When you shell out peanuts, you get monkeys ***

    c) They are usually discontinued models. It is very difficult (if not impossible) to find drivers and latest firmware for the routers.
    d) Ditto for guides
    e) So if you loose your CD, you had it.

    So why buy BSNL modems? Three reasons:

    a) BSNL does not support modems purchased indepnendently
    b) They are cheap
    c) They do their job well

    Well said just
    well i bought a connection & modem from BSNL in july 06 named like DareGlobal (DB 108) ADSL Modem. (rather i was forced to accept the modem coz they were having the shortage of modems & for that reason they were postponing my connection....so no clue)its on off switch lost its spring action in 6 months or so........hence i always tunr on-off modem with the help of the adapter.....rest everything is ok with the modem....

    & on u r last sentence "They do their job well",only if ur luck is on ur side

    If they do not do their job, you can go back to BSNL and ask then to repair or replace it free of cost (if you are within one year).

    After one year: If the modem has worked for one year without issues it is likely to work for another three years at least, unless:

    a) It gets 'fried' by electrical surcharge. Even in this case, it is likelier that the power supply will burn out rather than the modem
    b) You keep it in very dusty and unventilated environment and so not clean/vacuum too often
    c) You try unknown firmware updates. Firmware updates should never be attempted by non-technical people. Also never try to fix something that is not broken.

    Please note that most small electronic gadgets has a lifespan of 3/4 years. Do not expect that it will work forever, especially cheap modems. You may be lucky but have pragmatic expectations.

    Dust!!!!! In India DUST is everywhere dont forget that in fact the modems provided by BSNL gets heated up so better to keep them in freezer

    modems from Linksys and Asus are good atleast they have good reputation in the market rest is upto your luck!!!
