Hello guys,Sorry to be a noob here. I got a bb connection from bsnl. But they were telling that they don't have a modem in stock now and asked me to buy one from outside. I don't know which one to buy. I went to a shop and checked a few - Becklin, dlink etc. But I don't know what kind of modem i should buy. I need a wireless enabled modem. Will router alone work for me? or I've to buy modem+router? is ADSL2+ Router (wifi) is modem+router.? Please advice me I'm totally confused about buying a modem for my connection.Thank you.

(a) I think BINATONE DTW....3in1 ( adsl modem+4lanPort+wifi) , is available
for about Rs 2200/=
or
VMC AN 1020 ( 3 in 1 )
( future use/reference;

or
Beetel 450BXI
OR
(b) buy ADSL modem ( price less than Rs 1000/= beetel 110TCI etc ) only,
and later add a wifi router such as Netgear WGR614V9 ( starting price Rs 1500/=).

List availability in local computer shops. Model numbers / price. 3 of each type above.
Check models listed in this thread also.

D-Link ADSL2/2+ Modem with Wireless Router seems OK.
price ... seems Ok.
An option WDS enables us to connect TWO ( same models preferred ) wifi routers in wifi mode.
( No cables ) to increase wireless range.

wifi router1 (WDS) ~~~~~ say distance 30/40 feet ~~~ wifirouter 2(WDS)~~~~~~~ another 30 to 40 feet.
( distance given approximate . Only for example. can be less or more ( *conditions apply )
