Hello Mahendra....I am also thinking of to buy UMG 1831 or E173..but still cant figure out what to choose. This Forum have a lot of discussions about both of modems but It would be helpful for most of the guys (just like both of us) if any SENIOR or EXPERIENCED MEMBER will help us to find out any good choice.I am still wasting my time with GooooooGling
