Buying a Wifi router for bsnl broadband

So I got a new bsnl broadband connection recently. The next step was how to use this. I was confused whether to go for a wired ADSL modem or a wifi. Though Bsnl offers both, the modems provided by bsnl have never pleased me. I’d been using UTSTARCOM modem from bsnl previously a few years back but the experience has not been good. These modems get heated up and have poor performance. So now for this new connection I decided to buy the modem myself. Since I have a laptop and a desktop, along with a few mobile phones that support wifi, I rather chose a wifi connection. I’m not as tech savvy and I really didn’t know anything about networking. After surfing a bit, I came across a few points that I would like to share. Firstly for bsnl, where an ADSL modem is required, you need to have both, the modem and a wifi router. Since these cost around 1300 and 1600Rs separately, I preferred a 2 in one modem and after extensive surfing, I found the following options which were the cheapest and of good quality. The model names are

  1. D-Link DSL-2730U Wireless N 150 ADSL2+ 4-Port
  2. Belkin Basic Modem Router (N150) (Black)
  3. Netgear DGN1000 Wireless-N 150 Router

These modems cost around 2200-2500Rs and I found these really satisfied. These are some points that you got to look for before buying a wireless modem

Firstly speaking of the bands, The 2.4 and 5 GHz bands are the frequencies in which wireless communications operate. 802.11 B and G devices use the 2.4 GHz band, while 802.11N can use either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band. Since much of other wireless communication takes place in 2.4 GHz band,  802.11 N is always more preferable.

WLAN and LAN ports.

Some routers come only with a single WLAN port. Make sure you have LAN ports too, so that you can connect a desktop which doesn’t have a wifi device unlike a laptop which has one built in.

Talking about speed

Speed is decided by bsnl or your ISP. Modems like 54mbps, 150 Mbps, 300 and even 900 Mbps are available. Don’t ever think that a 900 Mbps would give a better speed than a 150 one. It depends on your budget and even a 150 Mbps would work fine.

Coverage

I’ve heard from friends that they didn’t have a good experience with Bsnl modems. I’ve tested these myself too but didn’t find it satisfactory. While companies like Belkin, Dlink and Netgear have a high built in quality and can satisfactorily serve a two storied house. The range of most of these modems is around 300m

Connectivity and security

I was pleased with belkin’s. Network Address Translation (NAT) technology it saves the cost of adding IP addresses per computer within your residence. This enables you to share a single IP address across your network which is also available with net gear.

Netgear has Denial of service, intrusion detection and WPA2 technology which is pretty standard for wifi modems .

These are some of the important prerequisites for buying a wifi modem. Other features depend on personal choice. So its up to you now to choose the right one!!

    Nice review
    I already had a Dlink ADSL2+ modem router, using BSNL 499 UL connection.
    So i went for TP-LINK TL-WR740N 150Mbps Wireless (without Modem) Router
    Great product and experience so far!

    Hi,

    @Hari : Dlink works well with bsnl but quite often we have to reset the settings which at times might be very frustrating. Netgear has no such problems at all. I use one at office and one at home. But bsnl broadband performance largely depends on your area of residence, as what our readers have to say

  7. Sai

    Do I need a wifi router with MODEM for my bsnl broadband ?
    Wifi router without modem doesn’t work ?

  8. mahesh

    yes, you’d need a modem to access internet. but if your Wi-Fi router has an in built modem then there’s no need of a modem.. the devices described above have inbuilt modem

  9. Ritvik Jadon

    please !!!
    Cn u tell me that Belkin Basic (n150) router will work as a wifi through BSNL modem>>>.
    Plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz make it quick….
    and if nt plzzz advise any other wifi modem >>>>>>
