    You'll need a wireless router for that...

    What type of modem do you have ? If you have taken the modem from BSNL, then it should be either of type1, type2, type 3 or type 4 out of which type2 & type 4 has Wifi. (see if your modem has an antenna in the back)

    Else you can get a cheap router for about 1.5k

    You can get a cheap Belkin wireless router for around 1.2k in local shops. On ebay, it is available for Rs 1065 with free shipping -- eBay India: Belkin G Wireless Broadband Router - 54Mbps - 5Yrs Wty (item 150559788086 end time 09-Mar-2011 15:18:13 IST)

    It is relatively easy to set up a router. I use a wired Reliance broadband connection. A year ago, I got a router so that I could share internet another laptop and an iphone.

    Google it... You will find all the tips you need...

    Cheers!

    My PC doesn't have a WIFI adapter. Should I buy that in addition to the Wireless Router ?

    ^^ You just need a wireless router. You can connect your PC via Ethernet (as it is now connected). No need for a Wifi adapter.

    1. Can I use a wireless modem instead of adding the wireless router with the exisiting wired modem, so that I can use the Dataone wired broadband as well as mobile WIFI at the same time ? [Kindly note I don't have a WIFI adpater in my PC]

    2. If yes, is it better to buy the wireless modem from BNSL or a 3rd party ?

    3. What did you mean by Type1, Type2, Type3, Type4 ? Please explain.

    There are two things which you can do.

    1) Get a Wifi router and use your ADSL modem with it. The Ethernet cable from your ADSL modem goes into the Wifi router which shares the internet through Wifi. Wifi routers also have LAN ports so you can connect your PC through LAN too.
    Spoiler:

    [You used two devices here]

    2) Get a Wifi router with built-in ADSL modem and ditch your current ADSL modem. Telephone line goes in your Wifi + ADSL router, Wifi network is created and once again connect your PC with LAN.

    [You used a single device here and this is what I will suggest to avoid hassle]

    I will not suggest to go for a Wifi + ADSL modem from BSNL. They are subpar in performance.

    Linksys WRT54G2 - only Wifi router with 4 LAN ports. It will cost you 1.5k
    Linksys WAG54G2 - Wifi + ADSL router with 4 LAN ports. It will cost you 2k [I use this at home]

    3. Those are just types of modems (+router) supplied by BSNL.

    Type 1 - 1 Ethernet port + 1 USB port + no Wifi

    Type 2 - 1 Ethernet port + 1 USB port + Wifi

    Type 3 - 4 Ethernet ports + no USB ports + no Wifi

    Type 4 - 4 Ethernet ports + no USB port + Wifi

    No it doesn't. Infact I have never understood why people use USB with their routers. Ethernet is the best.

    I called Golcha Computers, SP Road now. They said those models are not available now. But these are the ones available [Wifi + ADSL router]

    Linksys WAG120N - Rs. 3000 Excluding Tax
    Dlink DSL-2640u - Rs. 2000 Excluding Tax

    What do you suggest ?

    Linksys WAG120N is Wifi-N which is 104mbps WLAN.

    Dlink DSL-2640u is Wifi-G which is 54mbps WLAN.

    The choice is yours.

    Regarding Linksys WAG120N, Liverpool_fan has one and he isn't satisfied with it due to firmware glitches. No idea if they are sorted or not. But personally, I am more than satisfied with my WAG54G2.

    BSNL charges you 1.5k for the Wifi version iirc. It is better to shell out 0.5k more and get a proper router from outside. The BSNL ones have really bad range.

    will take BB in a few days & most probably will take the modem on rent. so buying a router doesn't seem to be the best idea. if i do go for a router, it'll be after a few months.

    Do this.

    As for WAG120N, great reception and performance as a Wireless Access Point.
    Sadly for WAG120N the downsides are:
    - Firmware issue regarding ADSL Gateway, ADSL sometimes/sometimes not automatically connects and this frankly sucks. Could be the case that my piece is defective, haven't bothered with RMA.
    - No DHCP Reservation. i.e. can't bind IPs to a particular MAC address.
    - No telnet into the router host.

    Apart from that now I have connected my WAG120N to my ADSL Gateway router (Betel 220BXI) on LAN port 1 and PC as wired on LAN port 2. Works really well for me, the reception is great all over my house.

    I would suggest you to get really separate ADSL Gateway (or even use your existing modem) and Wireless Access Point (they'll cost 2k or below, get an OpenWRT compatible device).
