    Default WIFI connection for MTNL Broadband

    Dear Sir,

    I am residing in Bandra, Mumbai. I am using MTNL Broadband internet connection. I would like to make my house WIFI connected. My budget is till Rs. 2,500. Can be extended if it is worth doing so. Area of my house is 745 sq. feet. I have a desktop, an iPhone and a Laptop which I would like to connect with WIFI. Also, I would like to connect my TATA Sky set top box to WIFI to avail VoD service. Can you please suggest me few good modem+router for MTNL ADSL+2 connection? Also can you please explain the procedure to install the WIFI router? If I can also connect my Reliance 3G USB dongle, that will be great. I think, I will require a WIFI dongle for TATA Sky set Top box. I heard that, few WIFI routers also support torrent download applications, but this is not mandatory.

    Thank You!

    Best Regards,

    Kunal Rane

    D-Link ADSL 2+ Ethernet / USB Combo Router (DSL-2520U) should suit u just fine with less than half the cost

    Dear Amey,

    Thank you very much for your reply. Just one month before I bought D-Link DSL-2750U Wireless N 300 ADSL2+ Modem Router. It is working very fine. I am happy.

    I bought it from Lamington Road for Rs. 2100. Configuration is very easy, it will take just five minutes. Just put in the CD and follow the instructions step by step. If you are a MTNL Broadband user then your telephone no. is your user id and CA no. is your password, check your MTNL phone bill, you will find it. I have not surrendered my old wired modem given by MTNL. I plan to use it as backup.

    This D-Link modem actually works better than MTNL modem, no fluctuating signal, no interruptions and gives faster speed than MTNL modem.

    I don't know why but MTNL doesn't charge me for any rent for modem.
