WI-FI router with modem or w/o modem confusion !

Hello TDF,

I am currently using a wired "pronet" ADSL modem for my BSNL BB. What I wanted to know is that I want to set up a WI-FI hotspot in my room so that I can use net on my droid.
SO the real question is do I only need a router without modem [as I am already having a wired modem] or do I need a router + modem ??
Whats the diff, it's confusing for me.

Or is there any thing like wi-fi splitter/spreader - which can distribute my BB connection to my room with some wi-fi device ??
Plz suggest me a router based on my need.

Thanks.
 
You just need a wifi router. The wire from the modem that goes into your pc will now be plugged in the router. Thats it.

So basically that small wifi usb will transmit my already connected wired broadband to my room?
you mean a wifi usb adapter used to convert a desktop to a wifi device?if your desktop has usb wifi adapter then you can connect your desktop to wifi router using wifi just like a laptop.

One query that usb wifi adapter that come for around 500 bucks will only work if I have already a wifi router in my home ??

If you already have a modem, why are you thinking to go for modem_router combo ? Just get the router. Actually, configuring latter is much easier and compatible with any type of connection.
