Wireless Router(s) for BSNL Boradband for two storey building

Ground floor : three rooms (L-shape) (3 laptops,4 mobile phone)
First floor : three rooms (L-shape) (6 laptop, 7 mobile phone)

Total : 11 partners
Usage : Internet Surfing

My plan : ADSL router for first floor(more devices) and connect this router to simple router(less devices) on ground floor. Is this configuration suitable ?

Which routers do I need to buy ?
Rooms are L-shaped so where do I place the router for equal signal strength ?
I am in Rural area, somebody knows the EXISTING plans available ?

Any ideas ?????

Is it possible to extend the range to ground floor via a cable ( i.e. remove one antenna from router and using some cable place it on ground floor) ??

can SMA cable be used ?
Upto what length of the cable will there be less loss ?

then get W8968 first.maybe it will be sufficient for your needs but if not then buy another wifi router.even apple make their products in chinese factories.tp-link is one of the biggest networking equipment companies in the world & you don't get to that position by selling poor products.

yes but needs a bit more configuring settings.W8968 also has an EWAN port(similar to WAN port of router) which makes it work/configure just like a router too.

Friend,you are misinformed.
Almost all Hardware components/peripherals/products are manufactured and come in from China.
TP-Link is a good company with good quality of network devices. They have a large user base here in India.

Ultimately,luck factor(only a part) has to be considered when buying and using electronics hardware products.

why buy two routers? buy this TD-W8970 - Welcome to TP-LINK, which has three 5dBi Antennas and can support more than 25 users. We use this in our firm and the signals are very good up to second floor.( the router is placed in ground floor).
