Hello folksFinally getting a 'broadband' connection after years of waiting :D BSNL has a franchisee who is handling installation, support etc. Deal looks OK, unlimited 128kbps @ Rs. 600/- p.m.They are suggesting a Beetel ADSL Modem 110BX which apprarently costs approx. 1000 bucks. Just needed to confirm a few things about this modem1) Does anybody have experience w.r.t quality, warranty and compatibility with BSNL. Are there any other better and equally affordable options that I should look at?2) Can this modem be configured to be kept 'always on' by a wireless router that will enable me to have a VOIP connection (like Vonage) or accessing the net from my laptop; without keeping my PC/desktop on3) Any other pitfalls that I should look out for - not just limited to this modem but while going about the connection in general .....Many thanks in advanceCheers. Srini

1) Does anybody have experience w.r.t quality, warranty and compatibility with BSNL. Are there any other better and equally affordable options that I should look at?
2) Can this modem be configured to be kept 'always on' by a wireless router that will enable me to have a VOIP connection (like Vonage) or accessing the net from my laptop; without keeping my PC/desktop on

The beetel modems does not seem to have Advanced Setup/DiAGNOSTICS/MANAGEMENT OPTIONS.
MY bEETEL 220bX HAS only DEVICE INFO/DSL/WAN/LAN/PASSWORD/DSL SETTING/REBOOT.
I CANNOT USE IT FOR PORT FORWARDING ETC.
Better to buy UTSTAR -300r2 ( only single RJ45) or higher model. having usb output also.
