    Smile Help me select ADSL+Wi-Fi Router

    Hii all ! I went to fill the form for Dataone connection and I was told that BSNL is no longer offering any modem. I knew that they had some wrong info , so I just checked the checkbox in the form, NO for modem from BSNL. Now please recommend me a good wifi enabled ADSL router. I also require more than one ethernet ports. U can suggest me a cheaper model from some known brand . And also if there is a tutorial available for connecting using that router then it will be of great help. So please let me know some model numbers and if possible comment about how that router performs.(within Rs.2000-2500). I want a router with ADSL modem built in. Please pour in your suggestions :14:

    There are at least a couple of thread on this topic. Just have a look at them (use Forum search function).

    Or

    You can go back to BSNL and tell them that you wish to buy/rent a modem also. In that case go for a Type IV modem. The fact that BSNL is not supplying modem is wrong.

    Thanks for the reply. I have searched most of the forum, but what I found was that most of the questions asked were that they require a Wi-Fi router to connect with the modem they already had. So if you have some models in your mind please share. Thanks

    No models but rather brands - Linksys or Netgear. Visit their websites for greater details. You can look up on eBay India for prices.

    Hey friends I did some searching and even found these to be in my range...
    1. Net Gear Wireless Router (WGR614) - Rs. 1650
    2. D-Link Wireless Router (DIR-300) - Rs.1900
    Source - computerwarehousepricelist.com
    I feel that they have quoted the price too low... also another query do the above mentioned routers have ADSL support, also Linksys WRT54G has ADSL support?
    Please give your inputs.

    1. Net Gear Wireless Router (WGR614) - Rs. 1650 is too high.. You can get this one for 1200-1250 in shops anywhere in Delhi.

    I dont know the price of the other one.

    according to me price for Linksys WRT54G is about 1500-1600 INR.
    you can check it with any local computer vendor.
    I like Netgear and D-Link routers

    WRT54G is a wireless router only. It does not have a built-in modem.
