I was thinking of sharing my MTNL Triband NU at home (between 3 computers, desktop requiring wired connection and two wlan notebooks). Currently on MTNL supplied DSL-502T; using the connection in bridge mode (with scheduled rasdial).

Can anyone suggest a modem-router combo since I'm rather clueless in this area. What do you think about these two? Any issues with Triband in bridge mode?

Please let me know your opinions on these and also any other modem-router that you may have in mind. Thanks.

Thanks Arnav. Could you please ask him if he can reboot it via telnet or use it in WAN Setting set to Bridge Mode. Come folks, help me please.

I recently purchased the same modem for 4150 from lamington road mumbai...that was the cheapest price i was getting...

i have two questions:

1. can u tell me the detail steps for configuring this modem including screenshots if possible...as i want to be prepared when mtnl guy comes to my place for line testing....

2. the adsl phone line splitter was not present in my package though i purchased a sealed box.... shall i contatct my dealer or you have to purchase it separately....
thanks

Regading ADSL line splitter, you need not worry as MTNL should be providing that.

mtnl don't provide splitter as they say that splitter comes with router... u can buy one yourself.... Netgear is really nice and best peice that is available at the moment, thats what i've been reading over the net...Do post your experience with it...
