PPPoE Query?

I currently have a BSNL Wifi adsl Modem situated in my father's room and 3 PC's connected to it via LAN with one PC in my room. The modem is in always on mode and there is no Wifi Signal from the modem in my room. I have a Wifi Tablet and planning to buy just a router for making my room wifi. So if i get the router the previous Lan coming from modem will go into the WAN of the new router and from their another LAN to my PC right?

My query is whether I'll have to change the PPPoe settings of the BSNL modem or it stays as it is ?

no the PPPoE settings stays as it is..

just connect the network cable coming from the modem/router to the new router and connect your PC to the new router.. you just need to set the Router IP, the default gateway, DNS and DHCP settings in your new router.

Nope.. i'm unaware about the current router market.. but from what I have read TP-Link is preferred, Try to sat away from Low end/low cost DLink routers.

Well I had a DLink DIR 524 with horrible range and speed, and it burnt out a few days ago. I have ordered an ASUS RT-N12 LX and just hope it will be better than the previous one

PPPoE is for modem only. you just need to follow the steps I mentioned in Post #2

Belkin Basic N150 router is one of the many potential choices.
Personally, I use Belkin Share N300 router as a repeater and never faced any connectivity issue.

Do give a review of the asus rt n12 lx :)

Well, the router is awesome, configuration was a breeze, and I upgraded the firmware and set up my android with it via WPS. Range is awesome. You wont be disappointed. But my question is when my Xperia P connects to the router, it always shows 56 Mbps even in "n only" mode while the router supports 300Mbps connection...

Can anyone help me here?
