Hy guys could any one please give me details about how to set up this connection. I did not get a modem from Youtelecom, just a wire coming into my PC. I have dataone UTstarcom router+modem. I wish to use the bsnl equipment as a ROUTER for my you broadband connection.thanks

I think RJ45 cable is coming. Right?If RJ45 is coming u cannot use ADSL router. U don't need modem. U have to connect to a router which supports RJ45 cable.

In short, you can't.

If you plug the cable in to any of the 4 ports on the back of this router, it won't perform the desired function (routing, WiFi, sharing with multiple PCs etc).

Ugh. Don't buy anything with the word "link" in the brand. A-Link, D-Link, TP-Link - just avoid - most of what's on offer will give you nothing but grief. Spend the extra 300 bucks and get something halfway decent.
