obviously. when you input your own user data, it will work on your line also.

You can test it and buy . Check my sticky Post Wa33002-g4 quick referencefor details/settings of the modem/router.If he had used it in Dialer Mode of BSNL BB connection, you can use your ID/PWin the "Dialer" in Computer and connect .If he had used it in PPPoE ( Always On") mode enter your USERid/PW in theWan page.Mention present modem number /make ,and details of proposed purchase of WIFI model.

----------actually from couple of days m trying to make my laptop a wi-fi hotspot

Yes, any BSNL WiFi modem will work in your connection. All you have to do is to change the ID and password to your's. As essbebe mentioned, take it to your place, check it and see if it is working before you pay.

You can also do it without using any app. just make a new wifi access point, and bridge it with the broadband LAN connection. It worked perfect for me till the time I purchased a wi-fi modem.
