Buying a Wi-fi router (with modem) for Home use

Hi Guys,

I am using Airtel broadband and using the same Wifi router that comes when we buy the connection. It seems to give problems these days. So thinking of buying a new one (with modem).

Did some R&D by reading reviews on flipkart and amazon but i am bit confused. Been some time since i kept track of what has been coming and going from the market in this segment. So thought of asking you folks who for sure are going to be much more informed than me.

My first confusion is about the brand. Which one out of D-Link, Netgear and TP-Link is better ? Product quality wise and service quality wise.

Search tells me that D Link DSL-2750 is one of the most popular ones. Is it good enough ? My budget is between 1500-2500 (or little plus minus). It has to be used in a 2 BHK house (not very big). And will be placed almost in the center.

What is the best in this range that i can get ?

Thanks.

Regards,
Amardeep Sidhu

I recommend tplink w8968 because it is cheaper & offers more features(EWAN port & 3g usb modem support for many models).

Thank you for the suggestions. This one is costing around 1500. If i want to spend little more like upto 2500 or so is there an even better option that i can pick ?

Otherwise will go with this one.

Thank you.

Go with the TP-Link as suggested in previous comments.
Very easy to set up(easy to configure) with multiple options for that model.

My only worry while buying online is that there is no way to make sure that they are shipping the version 4 of the product. So confused whether to buy online or should try Nehru Place where i can take a look at the box.

that is only a router,it will not work without a modem for internet connections given using telephone line(like airtel,bsnl,reliance).
