    Lightbulb Recommended wifi modem for MTNL Broadband

    Hi Folks,

    I want to replace my existing ADSL modem provided by MTNL with a wifi modem.

    Could someone let me know the brand name and model number (and may be the price) of some wifi ADSL modem which I can use with MTNL (Delhi) ?


    Thanks in Advance,
    Chihu.

    Just a moment. WRT54G is an excellent router and I have it myself but it does not have a built in modem. So it cannot replace your MTNL ADSL modem router. What you need is an ADSL modem + wireless router.

    I do not have specific models but you cannot go wrong with Linksys or Netgear. Just make sure that there is a built in ADSL modem inside.

    No one knows what wifi modem MTNL provides.
    Went to a nearby comp shop and the vendor is asking Rs. 1950/- for a D-LINK router. Not sure whether it has a built in modem or not. The person was not sure and also it was to be made available only on order.

    Question price of Dlink DSL-2640T

    Hi,
    Could you please tell me the price of Dlink DSL-2640T modem+router that you just purchased. Also please let me know how it worked for you.

    In US I am getting it for around $80. Just thinking if it is better to boy from India itself or should I get it from here itself.

    Default You can buy NetGear Wireless Router

    Hi,

    I also had ADSL modem router for broadband. I purchased an additional netgear wireless router and made the connection wifi. If try to buy ADSL + wireless broadband router it will cost u around 5000+. Just wireless router will cost u only 1800 rs. As you have adsl router, I would advise to buy just the wireless router.

    One more benefit is if in future u move to cable net ADSL broadband will not work. The wireless router can be attached to any type of broadband router.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Rakesh

    Smile must buy

    Dlink DSL-2640T present prices are approx inr4000 the best part is you have lot of features in this and also what is the need of buying seperate adsl modem and wireless router when you can have this in one composite device. i am using it for past eight months and find it the best.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    All,

    Thanks for your feedback. I think I should buy DSL-2640T in India itself as the price difference is about only Rs 800/-. In India, I will get warranty too and no incompability issues or power adapter/ voltage etc.

    Regards,
    Anand

    Can you tell me the range of the 2640T? I saw a belkin router without a modem which supports upto 400ft. I am thinking whether to buy a modem and wireless router separately or as a single one??

    For wireless router only, with my experiend over last 4 years with wifi routers including Liksys, DLink and some others...Netgear WGR614 is one of the best...very easy to setup and mantain...

    And also, as suggested above, it is a good idea to have a separate Router and Modem...gives yout the flexibility of moving from cable to dsl broadband or vice versa...also if something goes wrong...only one of the 2 machines would need replacement...thereby giving you a cost advantage in long run...

    the coverage of the router is not as much as wide i thought, i'm having a small house saw abt 100feet in radius and the signal is good enough....

    if belking can support 400ft then go for it, if you want wider coverage

    i have local cable internet connection which connects directly to my lappy rj45 connector. the cable wala give me a static ip address with all details. its "24online" provider. everything is static. they also provide a software to install and connect using that (cyberoamonlineclient). i have recently bought a d-link 2640T wifi+modem+router. what i want is, if it possible....

    connect that 24online's rj45 to my wifi router (it has 4 rj45) so that i can connect to internet through 24online wirelessly. got the idea. so i need to know how do i setup my router for that.

    thx for ur help

    Nikhi, with reference to your message. I want to use wifi and if i use it with any router with inbuilt modem, do i need any kind of activation from MTNL. My concern is why does MTNL ask for extra charges for wifi.

    I have the settings for wired one, and i guess same can be used if wifi also. Only hardware is the requirement.

    Correct me if i am wrong.

    Nikhi,
    If i get a wi fi enabled router with inbuilt modem and configure it the way wired modem from MTNL is done; Will it work?

    MTNL asks for extra monthly charges for wifi, do they really make any change at their end for activating wifi.

    I think its the only wifi enabled router with inbuilt adsl modem; which is needed.

    Please revert.

    Thanks,
    Joy

    I m Ashwani From Delhi. I am using a ADSL wired modem at my home. I am also interesting about using MTNL's wifi modem for my laptop. Today i am going to book my wifi modem at the Sanchaar Haat near my home and then after using that wifi modem i will share my thoughts about that wifi modem.
    In Addition, i want to tell that my ADSL modem cost the rent of Rs. 50/- per month and that wifi modem will cost me around Rs 70-75 per month. So i think its not a bad deal for getting that new wifi modem with ADSL+.

    why not you go for Beetel 450TC1 adsl wifi router. It has both adsl modem and wifi in a single pack. and if you are ok with refurbished there are many ads on quikr.com or olx.in where you can find it on very cheap rates.
