i have a linksys router. i couldnt set it up with the CD it came with so it was very troublesome to set it up manually... and one day it just didnt power on. So to get it replaced i had to wake up early morning to go to the customer centre take a token and wait for 4 hours for a replacement.

If you want hassle-free configuration router get the Belkin. And if you need more features and extensive setup options go for a Netgear. Both of them with 150mbps speeds should cost around 1300 or so. Good luck.PS- i am using Netgear JWNR2000.

Belkin setup is very easy. I did that on my friend's place. Just run the CD and follow the instructions. It just takes 5 mins and the router is ready. As far Netgear setup goes, it was a real pain. I just called up their customer care and they helped me very much setting it up.

Just call up MTNL people and tell them to help configuring the router.

Thanks. Which Belkin Wi-fi Router would you recommend for MTNL? I'm from Mumbai.

Well that depends on your usage and budget. Belkin basic wifi router(150 mbps) will cost 1400 and that with 300 mbps will cost around 2300 bucks. If you want just basic functions then get the basic router.
PS- Both of them are just routers and do not have inbuilt modem
