can anyone tell me if the modems used on ptcl line are cable modems or standard copperline modems.
i will be in pakistane(dina town) in 2 weeks time and require internet connection. Since i will be using my laptop i need a wirless router/modem. I have seen the list of routers provided by ptcl since none of them are wirless i would rather buy a modem with built in
can i use linksys WRT54G2 , Netgear DG834PN orr the WAG160N as a modem router.
Also the should be a thread for a list of third party compatibale modems.
Linksys WAG160N is your best choice. It is a ADSL modem + 4-port switch + wireless-N access point all-in-one router/gateway. It should be compatible with PTCL as it accepts VCI/VPI settings, as explained in its user guide. Since, I do not own it myself so I can not be a 100% sure but it will most likely work fine with PTCL. It also has wireless-N which should give you more range and higher data transfer rate and security then a wireless-G router.
The only issue is the price. If you can get it under $100 then it is an excellent choice.
