I have just bought a NetGear 108 Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Router DG834GT for my sify broadband internet connection (256Kbps) in Mumbai. However on my checking with a local technical assistance for using the same for my laptop/desktop, he said the same would not work and I needed a Broadband router! I would appreciate if anybody could help me with this and let me know whether this router works with the Broadband Connection from Sify in Mumbai or I need to change this router.
Also if it works how do I set it up to access my laptop for the SIFY Broadband connection? Since I am a novice at this, would appreciate if someone can help me on this...Thanks...

The router you have is for an ADSL connection. If your broadband is delivered via ADSL (over a phone line) then it should be OK, if it is via ethernet or cable, then you will probably need a router without the ADSL modem built in.
