Hi,
I need to buy a router. Is there any router that can work on RJ45 connections (DSL broadband) as well as RJ11 connections (RJ11 ADSL eg. BSNL) so that I won't need to buy another router if the connection type changes?

Thanks.

any adsl modem with more than 1 lan port is also a router so you can use it on both rj45(by using one of the lan port) & rj11 connections.

Oh really... I didn't know. Let me try this. It has 4 LAN ports.
BTW it is Beetel 450 BX1

So with LAN, will it work as a WI-FI also?

Thanks.

yes.in connection settings select connection type as dynamic ip.

Tried a lot but couldn't setup it. I plugged both RJ45 cable (broadband connector and desktop connector) into 4 LAN ports and opened the modem settings. But couldn't configure it. If you can provide any link with detailed explanation then it may help.

Thanks.

select ISP as dynamic ip address & save & reboot.it should work.W8968 has 4 lan ports out of which one is "EWAN" port which is similar to "WAN" port in routers & this will be used for rj45 input.

Don't know what setting I selected but this time when I plugged my desktop cable and DSL connection in model, internet worked on desktop. But when I inserted laptop cable, internet didn't work on laptop!!!
Somebody told me that I need to start Internet services.

Are there more models like this W8968?

Thanks.

many cable broadband providers restrict no. of devices connected to one so you have to use the clone mac/mac spoofing feature in connection lan settings to copy the mac address of your desktop into router & then you will be able to connect as many devices as you want.there are no other models like W8968 in similar price range which have adsl modem+usb port+3g usb modem support.
