    Hi guys,

    I need to get a new wifi modem for my BSNL broadband. I am on 512 kbps unlimited plan. Should I get the one being supplied by BSNL or should I get a better one myself? I am thinking of getting D-Link GLB-802C router ADSL2/2+. My budget is 1.5k. Thanks in advance guys :)

    I also would like to know about warranty.

    Stay clear of D-Link routers. They aren't good. I suggest you to look for an OpenWRT compatible Linksys router (Wireless Access point)

    Isn't it possible to get a normal LAN wifi router and use old modem's output to route it ?

    If u want that, go for netgear modems... Go for N+ modems as they got the best range.
    But they are costlier.

    And Dlink is not gud..

    I dont know any specific models dude..
    Sorry.. But i know that for best signal range ,u need to buy the N+ type routers. I got an internal wifi card of Netgear. It gives me range problems..
    It is of 'g' type.
    And my bro bought the D-Link router and he is always having problems with that...

    Costs have greatly reduced in the last six months..

    For your budget u will get low end modem/routers
    IBall is low priced modem.. I cannot give a review about that..

    Routers Price List India: Network Components: Flipkart.com

    select a modem from here and post your selection. If possible i will check that out and let u know..

    Up ur budget to 2500 and get a netgear.
    Cisco(WAG120N) one is costlier..

    Flipkart: Cisco Linksys Wireless-N Home ADSL2 Modem Router: Router

    this is the WAG120N that i was talking about.


    I know its too late to reply.. but i have been offline for 6 months..
    using GPRS so not much activity :p
    If u still need the clarifications please mail me on busymaverick@gmail.com
