i am looking for wifi connectivity at my place & a substitute for my existing beetel modem.

i have shortlisted the following modems
dlink 2750u
tplink 8961nd (3db dual antenna)
asus n10 (5db single antenna)

which one is best value for money & which one will give me the best wifi connectivity upto 2 or 3 floors?
also give me the street price of the above 3?
how does this antenna power effect my wifi connectivity?
any further suggestion is welcome

d-link is just name & nothing else.for any modem/router costing less than 7000 only good options are asus & tp-link.i myself have seen people here having problems with 2750u.

ok thank you so much...that's the only reason i was looking for experience guidance before buying it.

tell me last thing,just now my friend suggested me to simply get a good wifi router & use it with my existing beetel 400BX1 instead of changing the modem as my existing modem is totally fine.
he said i can save on money as well as get a better wifi connectivity at my 3rd floor too.

i didn't wanted to get router because of the reason of adding one more modem which will run almost 15-20hours a day drag more electricity as well as cover some space on my computer table which is already full of my stuff ;) but i dont think the modem will drag much power so i think i can leave that point.

what is your opinion on this?
i mean...should i go for this tp link w8961nd modem+router or get a nice router & add it to my existing modem?

i have 3 floor 750sq feet house. & the modem/router will be placed on the ground floor & i will be using wifi on all the 3 floors.

841N has fixed antenna while 941D has 3 antennas that too detachable(denoted by D in model number).what this means is if for some reason in future you need to increase the strength & range of your router signal you can replace the detachable antenna with something like this to boost your router signal:
TPLINK TL-ANT2408CL 2.4GHz 8dBi Indoor Omni-directional Antenna TP-LINK | eBay

as for actual performance i am not sure but 841N or the W8961ND(it also has detachable antenna) should easily cover 2 floors assuming they are on ground floor & should cover 3rd floor too with some difficulty but this also depends on factors like construction of your house(design,material used,presence of glass doors/windows etc).

in my opinion you should get w8961ND & if you feel its range insufficient then buy the external antenna to boost its signal.
