Guys i need your suggestion.

I have a BSNL connection which is in my bedroom. I am using DSL-2570U modem router. Now i want to extend my net connection to my living room, so should i go for a wifi extender(if yes, which) or a wifi router(if yes, which, need a cheap one around 800 buks). Also i need LAN ports also, for my TV and XBox setup.

I am currently using my old bsnl modem cum router AN-1020N for it. But when i switch it on, my D-Link wifi gets unsteady and drops NET connection and not LAN connection. If i keep old BSNL modem switched off, then wifi works fine. May be my old modem is buggy or wifi freqs of both modems are getting mixed.

Please need a technical answer for this as i am planning to buy a router or an extender or a switch as per the answers.

Thank You

D-Link 2750U is a modem + router by itself as I believe. If not mistaken a dual antenna one and can give you a good range. Take the BSNL modem out and use Dlink 2750U . That will meet your needs in my opinion.

i am using just D-Link only for now, but one room is getting very weak range(due to walls), so i am looking for a solution.
