    Exclamation To get wireless - HOME 500

    Hi friends,

    Im thinking of subscribing to HOME 500 plan,
    but this is a wired connection,
    As my usage is for Laptop, i want a wireless connection, USB modem sort of thing.. something like wat TataIndicom,Relian.. provides...

    Can anyone suggest.. getting a router will suffice.. ???
    Will the same speed (256Kbps / upto 2Mbps ) be maintained..??

    Are you asking whether BSNL provides datacards?

    Exclamation

    hmm.. i need my laptop to be connected...
    Obviously.. i would prefer wireless..
    Datacards from Tata, Reliance.. offer only 144Kbps..
    but im intrested in high speed plan,... like HOME 500 in BSNL.

    Can i have a facility wher this HOME 500 can be made wireless with a Router?

    If at all, Do you suggest??

    Will the speed remain same .. 256Kbps / Upto 2Mbps ???

    Is a Router from BSNL ok !! OR any other .. like verizon,etc is recommended

    Yes BSNL also provides datacard but some story 144kbps. You can visit here
    Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited - BSNL Data Card - High Speed Internet - Anywhere - Home Page

    But EVDO Card is available from BSNL (Internet speed up to 2.4 Mbps), but i am not sure its response.

    Go for Type IV modem, which supports Wireless + 4 LAN connections, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd.. (i am using one)

    I am looking forward for response from other users whose use different modem models specific to BSNL connection.

    EVDO is not available everywhere. My suggestion is go for a Type IV ADSL modem which has wi-fi capability.

    the difference between type2 and type 4 is

    type 2 : it has wi-fi but has only one LAN port

    type 4 : it has also wi-fi but has 4 LAN ports

    rest of the features are same

    if you purchase in between these two ADSL modems there will be wi-fi connection obviously

    and yes ofcourse speed will be maintained who told you that your speed will be hampered .........besides transmission losses in case of wireless

    yes you can use this router with any ISP.

    you see the type4 modem is damn cheap i.e. for rs1800 and if you are willing to pay more then you can buy some good ADSL routers from brands like Linksys,Netgear or Asus these brands are the best of the best. Try to buy a router which sports Range Next technology besides regular a/b/g technology.......so the choice is yours

    it is just a newer protocol just like USB 1.1(12mbps) & USB 2.0(480mbps).802.11 n or N-range is faster with typical transfer rates of 74mbps & max rates upto 300mbps with a range of upto 70m(twice that of b/g standards).here is a detailed link---
    IEEE 802.11 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    modems/routers having this technology are latest & as such will be costier.you have to decide if you can afford one though older b/g standard routers will also work fine & if you don't want to spend a few thousands more to get extra range in meters you will be fine with b/g routers/modems.
