How to easily convert any non-wifi router into a wifi router? So that one can easily get wireless internet access from the non-wifi router onto mobile phones?

    I'm confused, are you asking if it's possible to add a radio controller and antenna to a router without WiFi and transform it into a WiFi router? Because if so, I'm going to say there's little chance it will save you money – and a huge chance it will take a you a long time. Just buy a WiFi router – there are many affordable models out there.

      Thanks

      Yes an antenna to make router wifi capable
      I agree that it is tedious and would involve almost equal expenditure as a new wifi router

      But the ISP does not have it's own wifi version of router and does not allow it's technicians to configure the ISP settings on wifi router.
      Other technicians to configure the ISP settings are not easy

      Still, it's going to be easier to plug a WiFi router into that. You can configure it to not conflict and just act as a WiFi relay for your primary router. It's going to be much easier for you.

    The simplest is to use an a dedicated WiFi access point. There are many models available for sale, and you connect them to the router using an network cable.
    There are also some routers, network bridges and other WiFi devices that can be used as access points, but the details vary from model to model, and often the configuration is not self evident.
    Given the low price of standard WiFi routers, you should should consider simply replacing your router with a WiFi-capable one, it may be no more expensive, and will save you the hassle of having an extra box, power supply etc.

      I agree that using a wifi router is logically correct

      But the ISP does not have it's own wifi version of router and does not allow it's technicians to configure the ISP settings on wifi router.
      Other technicians to configure the ISP settings are not easy.

      Can you pl reference and recommend such devices ( to plug and wifi-enable ) from http://www.ebay.in?

      Well, any of the following should do the job: Netgear WN604, D-Link AirPremier DAP-2310, TP-Link TL-WA901ND, Buffalo AirStation WLAE-AG300N. There are many models from those makes, and other makes that make good APs. The most important thing is to match the WiFi standard to the equipment you use (e.g. 802.11n), and if you can afford a MIMO (multiple antennae) model, your indoor range may be improved.
      Once you find a model that seems right, look for a review on the internet to make sure it's decent - the electronics will not vary a lot, but the user interface will!
