ok so i opted for the 1500 box and to my surprise this doesnt come with wifi .

called the dude and he told me that nothing can be done now..

am i screwed ?

i do have a router lying around

D-Link DSL-2750U Wireless N 300 ADSL2 + Router

this one, it has wifi

can i connect the old router using the ethernet cable and get wifi working ? idk if thats possible..

any help is appreciated ..

EDIT

the wifi is working as of now,

had to tinker around a bit , change firmware etc. :p

thanks for all your support

Yes, it's possible. Just connect it to LAN and assign DHCP. Shouldn't be hard. However I am not sure how Jio login works, if you can enlighten me their auth process, I can help a bit better. but get a router which supports 5.0ghz , as you won't be able to reach 100mbps with this router on wireless.

that d-link probably would not work as it is a adsl modem plus wireless router. so it would be advisable to get a high performance dedicated wireless router if you are on a high speed plan (above 100mbps).

update. i guess i am wrong based on above comments. from my understanding, most adsl combo devices do not work well as wireless routers. plus i imagine wireless performance would be shit.

@Sushubh it would work. adsl or not, it doesn't matter, all is needed is to assign dhcp. I have 2 modem router and I have one rj11 bsnl connected to one adsl modem router and have connected LAN to the other modem router to it and works fine. Yeah router is shit and won't be able to reach the speeds that Jio can deliver.

i dont really need uber fast wifi tbh, even 40mbps would be good enough for now

you should see upload images option below the quick reply box. just use that to upload photos taken from a phone perhaps?

personally i think it is better to have a separate wireless device as it gets you more flexibility. you can get a much more powerful device with better functionality.
