it means your modem is already set in bridge mode(where you have to use userID/pass from pc every time to connect) & it is a good thing because now you just have to add wifi router & enter your bsnl ID/pass in its settings.for details see this:

see article no.10.procedure is similar.

some good wifi routers are:
TP-LINK TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless N Router - TP-LINK: Flipkart.com

this one is a bit costlier but it has better range:
TP-LINK TL-WR941ND 300Mbps Wireless N Router - TP-LINK: Flipkart.com

1. How about switching to PPPoE (Always ON) Instead ?
and +1 for TP-LINK TL-WR941ND as suggested by Whitestar_999

can't say how much but 941ND has 3 antennas & they are detachable(denoted by D in model no.) meaning you can replace them with more powerful antenna in future to further boost signal so in a way it is kinda like a desktop pc which you can upgrade.841N has 2 fixed antennas & if i remember correctly @dashing.sujay posted that it works well across 2 floors & with some difficulty even at 3 floors but range also depends on design of house/nature of obstructions/construction material used etc.you can ask him about details of 841N or similar model.

edit:see this about range from someone who just bought 841N:

see my above reply.it has a link to a user experience about 841N range.btw stick with bridge mode setup of modem because once you bought wifi router you can configure it in pppoe/dial mode so as soon as you turn on your modem & router you will be connected on any device connected to router(wired & wifi).

I got Modem in PPPoE and router on static IP (of modem) :confused:
if it works then good but i prefer 1st setup because it allows greater flexibility in opening ports on individual machines & hardware firewall of router.
