    I have BSNL broadband connection and BSNL ADSL Modem UT-300R2U. It has got two ports ethernet port and USB and Ethernet port. I want to know that is there any facility or a dongle available which can be connected to USB port direct on modem and I can convert the signal to Wi-Fi as then I will have the facility of using my Iphone from anywhere in the home.

    Laptop : Ethernet port
    Iphone : Wi Fi

    can i use both at the same time??

    i dont want to buy Wifi modem and WIFi Router

    and my laptop dont have built in wifi.

    Today I talked to one of my friend who is in networking field. He said, it is not possible because how will you set the address and how to install the drivers and other things.

    But still then I think it is possible. Anyone here please help.

    just simply purchase a Cheap VFM Wireless Router - such as TP LInk 740N (online --- 1050/-) and u just need to connect cables --- and it will start working out of the box --- and if u come across any HASSLE - community is here to sort it out.

    Believe me --- GO for Wireless Router rather than Wireless Adapter - for the purpose of Sharing INTERNET

    You can not use Wireless and Ethernet simultaneously, its not allowed on BSNL home planes. Which modem you are using, I could have told you details if I knew the modem company name.
    Open firefox or other browser, go to 192.168.1.1 it will ask a ID and Password. Give the ID & pass.

    id: admin and pass: admin
    and then you will see the modem config page. Don't mess with it unless you know everything, just find the wireless option and check on it. thats it.:wink:

    Type2 I guess, do as I've said. Find the wireless option by going to 192.168.1.1 and CHECK ON it. :wink:
