I am planning to buy a WiFi router but I am confused with all the options available. When I look at Amazon, I see many different products:

1. ADSL router
2. ADSL2 router
3. Wireless router
4. Ethernet Router

How are they all different? Which router should I buy to make my home internet wireless and accessible in all the rooms?

It's popular among home users or between those user who prefer more downloading rather than uploading.An ADSL modem do not require dialing to telephone line to initiate the connection rather it's a plug and play device.In ADSl the number of connection that are allowed are often limited.An ADSL modem needs a power supply.

ADSL2 router is a just a revised ,enhanced and updated version of ADSL router that provide you higher data speed.
