I'm just now ordering VDSL internet service from BSNL India, and they are not giving me much help on modems / wireless routers. They don't seem to offer any equipment for rent or sale with this service, so it looks like it's up to me. I'm digging for more tech support from them but right now I've gotten the "whatever you choose will work" line, which I know is not true because ADSL and VDSL modems are not compatible (as I understand it).
I know I need a VDSL modem or all-in-one modem and wireless router that supports VDSL/2. I've found some from D-Link and Linksys, but none that are available in India. I'll also be administering it from a Mac, so I do want something with a decent web interface or (less-preferable) Mac software. So, my questions are:
Once I find a VDSL modem, assuming it's not an all-in-one, then I will need a wireless router that supports more than 1Mbps upstream speeds, as my plan (supposedly) offers 10Mbps down and 4Mbps up.
all-in-one modem + wireless routers, like the D-Link DSL-2750U WIRELESS N ADSL2+ 4-PORT WI-FI ROUTER, is first of all ADSL2+ and second of all advertises upload speeds of just 1Mbps, so this isn't going to broadcast the speed my service is giving me, isn't that correct?
will a 300Mbps wireless router easily transmit the upstream speeds of 4Mbps that my service provider is giving me? I presume it will, but I'm still not clear on the download/upload speeds and what the advertised speed actually means.
or should I consider a 600Mbps or above?
I'll connect my main work computer via ethernet straight to the router, so will Gigabit ethernet make the internet connection snappier or is 10/100 way faster than the service anyway and I wouldn't feel any difference?
