Hi,

I have a Beetel 450BX1 ADSL2 + Modem (it
has 1 adsl port, 4 lan port and a wifi antenna)
from Airtel. Now I have changed my
broadband provider to SITI Cable. They provide
direct RJ45e cable to be connected directly to
the computer. I want to understand how I can
use ADSL + Modem to surf internet on wi-fi on
my laptop.

If you can use it at all, the cat5 cable from SITI connects to the WAN port. Otherwise, you would need to buy a different router.

It Worked !!!

1. Configure your ADSL modem with no IP or DHCP
2. Configure laptop's wi-fi IP as provided by SITI
3. Connect SITI cable to ADSL.

Bingo ! It works :) Essentially speaking, the ADSL is now
working as mere switch.

Limitation - I can connect only 1 device, but its some thing I
can manage for now !

Why only one device?

Only one device as SITI assigns its users only one IP, which I
have configured on my laptop. Say on my phone, even if I
configure the same IP, it will create conflicts in network.

Hope this clarifies.

That's why routers have LAN ports & use NAT.
