Well you can buy a D-link router or a netgear router.. both work on Airtel.. The difference between the wifi router of Airtel and BSNL is really 2 much..But they are not selling the normal ADSL modem, costing around 2000 rs.. in punjab now.. in most plans the modem is coming free, (the owner of the modem is airtel, but you can use it for free, and in case any thing goes wrong with the modem, you will get the replacement free of cost at your doorstep).. so try to choose a plan , in which you donot have to pay the modem rental..
