Re: setting up a lan and internet thru MTNL triband
I suggests you to go for Linksys. It's a good product when it comes to wireless internet. Linksys router must be plugged in to the modem. On the back of the router, you can plug the vista on port number 1 then your win XP machine can go wireless at the same time.

You should reset your router to clear all information from it. The best procedure to fully clear your device would be to press the reset button with power on for 30 seconds; while continuing to press the reset button, remove power from the unit; and while continuing to press the reset button restore power for 30 seconds.
You should now be able to access the menus after the unit boots up with the default user name/password for the unit. If you do not know them, just Google [your router name] default user name and password. You can now set up the router to meet your requirements. There is a lot of information that will help you on the Internet, but having a clean booted router is important to start with.
1,there is a reset button
2,press this using any pin with power
4,connect your router with pc
5,type 192.168.1.1 on the browser
password:admin12 or admin
You have to take a pen and hit the reset button, and hold in on it for about thirty seconds to minute. Be sure to re-secure your wireless internet after that, so your neighbors can't use it, by using a personal password. It is located under basic wireless setup on the router page. 192.168.1.100 is the default after the reset of linksys been pressed.
Since your ISP provided you a username and password when connecting to a broadband connection, you have to setup the router's "Internet Connection Type" to PPPoE then you need to enter the username and password that you are using to connect to your broadband.
Once you do that, the router will obtain an IP address from your ISP(MTNL) then it will give connections to your computers
