Adls Modem with Asus Rt-N13u B1

Ideas are Bulletproof
Hi,
I want to buy the cheapest and stable modem available to be used with Asus Rtn13u b1(DD-Wrt installed).
I've mtnl 599 unlimited plan, so it'll be rarely turned off.
My budget is 1.4k but want to spend as low as possible.

I've shortlisted TP-Link TD-8817, Flipkart link.
But is have only one RJ45 Port, what if the port went bad, then I'll have no other port to connect to.
This model have the same "configuration interface" as of my MTNL modem, so it'll be easy for me to configure.

Here is another modem with 4 RJ45 pots- "TP-Link TD-8840T", Flipkart Link,
but it's configuration interface is same as Beetel 220bx, which i was unable to configure with my net.(A friend have the beetel modem)
I will be using the modem in bridge mode, with PPPoE settings configured in the Asus Router.
Which one should i buy?
With the first modem i'll only get 1 RJ45 port, but it'll be easy for me to configure.
And the second one have 4 RJ45 port, but not easy to configure for me.
Thanks

I don't know what problems you faced in configuring Beetel modem, as PPPoE is mostly easy to configure.

Coming to modem selection, choose the later one due to obvious benefits, though RJ45 ports going kaput is something rare to happen, still opt the latter, just a matter of 400 bucks.

PS: You don't necessarily need to configure your router in bridge mode. At least, I don't find any need of it.

i configured the beetel model, but it didn't connect, the PPPoE status was down.(my net was having some issues at that time, maybe that was the reason.)
anyway, is there any other modem i should consider under 1.4k?, or the "TP-LINK TD-8840T" is the best one i can get?
And on the TP-Link site it says that the 8840t has multiple revisions-
TD-8840T - Welcome to TP-LINK

which one are these-
TPLINK TD-8840T ADSL2+ Modem Router 4 ethernet ports TP-LINK | eBay
TP-LINK TD-8840T DSL2+ Wired with Modem Router - TP-LINK: Flipkart.com

Those are just hardware revisions, just like N13, then N13U, then N13U B1; so unless you're looking for specific hardware support, which is not the case here, you should not worry.
