bsnl appears to have ftth in very limited regions. fuckers have all the raw material for my area but they have not bothered to lay down the fiber.
i am not sure we have many people who are using bsnl ftth. so it might get igored. or not!

No. ADSL 2+ modem router will not work. Buy a regular standalone router. Budget?

You will have to buy a separate standalone router. Later if you get comfortable with BSNL provided FTTH modem, then you can enable bridge mode on it and let your main router do the pppoe connection dialing.

Hi Richie
I posted in another thread "How to connect adsl+Wifi router to Existing BSNL FTTH ONT" started by you.
Pls don't by Dlink, it is not connecting automatically, every time we have go to settings and connect manually. We tried with Cisco & Netgear, both are working.

Wrong. Pl see post of Niva dtd 01.10.204 -

It is very simple. Do the following steps, in order to use your NETGEAR ADSL2+ Modem + WiFi Router for your FIBRE connection.

1. First switch off your FIBRE modem.
2. Switch on your ADSL2+ ROUTER (NETGEAR or other)
3. Connect your computer through RJ45 network cable from Ethernet 1
(i.e. first port - as number mentioned in your router)
4. then login into - router
(i.e. http://192.168.0.1 or whatever default provided by router company)
5 Go to "Advanced" tab --- connection settings (of your WIFI Router / NETGEAR )
There you can find "LAN Settings"
6. LAN - Disable DHCP Server. (i.e. DHCP Server Off).
7. Save & Exit
8. RJ45 connection CABLE from ONT modem to your NETGEAR -- RJ45 (Ethernet 1 & not other Ethernet ports)

Other WIRELESS settings - same as whatever you have already. Then just restart - your NETGEAR & swtich on your FIBRE.

Your WIFI is enabled.
