I'm kind of looking for a replacement and am really confused of the options available so I need suggestion from experts out there!

I've a Linksys WAG 200G ADSL model which had a 54Mbps wifi speed and a fair range.

Since there are a fair number wi-fi devices including 5 network cams, I'm looking for a good modem with nice range (to cover approx area of 750 Sq Ft) and equal or above wi-fi speeds of 300Mbps. I have a 10Mbps ADSL+ Intrenet connection from state owned BSNL India.

I'm looking for a combination of a good ADSL+ modem and Wi-Fi router. Thanks for all the suggestions.

  • Welcome to Hardware Recommendations. What kind of walls do you have? What is your budget? Are you open to the possibility of having separate modems, access points or routers?

  • Thanks. I have conventional 14 inch brick walls and a lot of open area with 2 different building blocks. Initially I do have a netgear wi-fi router as well but I was kind of looking for a single device to handle both internet and network.

  • I'm looking for a mix of performance and cost effectiveness, Can spend up to INR 7000 to 10000 for a good device. Thanks

  • Are you sure there's only 750 square feet and not 7500 square feet? That's a radius of less than 9 meters, which seems a bit small to fit 2 buildings into. For 2 buildings, I think I'd recommend multiple access points, connected by Ethernet. I'll have to get back to you later though.

  • Ok, yes may be I'm wrong about the area, what is the maximum range I can get from a single modem+wifi device? Just curious.

1 Answer 1


I recommend the TPLINK AC1750 ARCHER D7, INR 8,529.00 and free shipping from Amazon.in. The CNET.au review shows that it has a real throughput of more than 300 Mbps total. However, much of this bandwidth comes over the 5 GHz band, so you still might require your old router for extra range (run a Ethernet cable across)

It integrates a ADSL 2+ modem, as required, and should be able to cover most of your property.
