get version 3 of w8968. check that in specifications. i am using the same since march without any single problem so far though i was told by the airtel service engineer that there is problem with it every month. i have version 2 of it, bought from snapdeal. if flipkart sells version 3, get it (preferably from ws_retail)
-Hi vidhu it seems that this tp link model is no more in production but snapdeal is still selling it-can i buy with them-are they reliable. i believe you brought from them.the usb version(version 2 ) has what advantages over version 1-sorry for repeating my query. i only use bsnl bbnd on landline

what the fuss all about v1, v2 and v3 ? :D If a person got the v3 version just by ordering 1 month back 99% chances are andy_65_in will also get the v3 from FK or at-least the v2. Most sellers do have only the latest version.

D-link 2750U also works ok with BSNL so either way Op can't go wrong.

fk had a lot of stock of version 1 & less stock of 2 and they told few people (including me) that they have version 1 only or at times told that it is a mix and they will not select by checking so it depends upon your luck. snapdeal had version bought by many. some time back fl sold version 3 also but it seems right now its again back to same old mixture :D

No It has not been shipped. I ordered yesterday though. They customer care can't answer me about the version or manufacturing date of this model. On the official website it is clearly written connectivity strength is 5 dBi but on flipkart 3dBi and customer care saying you will get the product as mentioned in specs of flipkart.
Should I cancel this TP-Link and order D-Link model? You too facing problem in this model. D-Link and Netgear are bigger brand I think.

flipkart says that they don't take returns for this product as it doesn't comes in 30 days return policy. Maybe because a lot of people returned their version 1.

- - - Updated - - -

Thanks for giving me hope that I will get version 3. So not canceling order.

They send me mail last night:
We are happy you have chosen to shop with Flipkart.com. We regret to inform you that our sellers have a mixed stocks of version and hence we cannot confirm on the version you would get during delivery.
Should I cancel or not?

3dbi means it is version 1

Version 2 has 5dbi.

snapdeal has Version 2. and flipkart sometime back had even version 3 but the Intelligent guys have mixed up the whole thing and they say "We don't know what you will get." and they also confirm (told me and few others) that "we have version 1"

flipkart says that they don't take returns for this product as it doesn't comes in 30 days return policy. Maybe because a lot of people returned their version 1.
