I'm a very tricky situation,i'll break it up to make it understandable...1.I've been using BSNL Broadband from around 6 years and that is why i've got a very old model of modem (R.B.Comtec X7005Q).It is a DSL modem that requires user/password.2.It came with an installation CD that works only on Windows XP (not in Vista..not in 7). I've tried o search for its newer drivers but its not available at all.3.Now i'm thinking of switching to a Wifi modem but i'm afraid because of my outdated connection that won't work on my PC...any ideas on whether i'm right or wrong...its very urgent...!!

R.B.Comtec X7005Q USB PORT ONLY
You modem is USB type and speed is slow 11Mbps data transfer
compared to 100Mbps for an ethernet port connection.
Now almost obsolete for connecting to ADSL broadband.
If interested in finding drivers for new OS, will try.
One advantage. Internet connection is not lost, if laptop is on Battery power.

Para two:
Confirm how you access the Internet now.

Check sticky thread "wa3002-g4" above.
Option (A)
ADSL modem with/without USB Port
Option (B)
a standalone wifi router + (A)
Option C)
a three in one model same as A+B
Option D:
3G wireless router + Option A ( for adsl BB connection )
Usb3G modem or USB datacard.

Para three;
(a).Mention present tariff plan /speed , and nature of surfing

Reply item wise.

If RBcomtecX7005Q is working .
IF YES Option B.
Netgear WGR614 V9 cost about Rs 1500/=
But Option (C) preferred. cost starting Rs 2000/=
Mention range of Laptop use ( radius of activity) ground floor/first floor etc.

If RBtech model working now Option B suitable.
Depending on radius of activity wifi router to be selected
Say 30 feet radius in ground floor or ground floor + 2nd floor ( height involved )
Search web site for standalone wifi routers Cost approx Rs 1500/=
Netgear wgr614v9 etc.
Advise Option (C)
TP LINK
