Under your wirless tab. Make sure Enable AP is ticked. You have named your SSID, usually the same name as your workgroup network.
In windows your workgroup is called WORKGROUP.
Chanel is set from 1 to 13
Security is set to WEP
Authentication Type is set to OPEN
Encryption key password is set to a 10 hexadecimal code.

ie: abcde12345 ( choose something you will remember)
On the device you are recieving make sure you have the same password, SSID, Same chanel as router and is set to WEP. If they are not the same then the units will not connect.

This should resolve your connection. When you first connect have the two units close to each other and reset the router. Then reset your other device. If it does not connect chect the antenna is screwed in firmly but not too tight to the router.

If it still fails then change your chanel up or down on both devices. Does not matter what channel you choose just as long as they are both the same.

Low signel strength


Common with single antenna routers and adsl/router boxes, i use a zoom x6 adsl with wireless and i was having similar problems , it also has a single antenna so i disabled its wireless feature and got a linksys rangebooster router dedicated to my wireless needs, has good range and its durable, Im basically suggesting that you get another wireless router with dual antennae and use that for your wireless needs, hook that up to your DLINK modem via ethernet cable and disable the dlink's wireless feature...Hope this helps..

1. You should better check the power supply if it is plug on, properly on a 220AC Voltage. 2. After installing your disk suppose to be you should reset the configuration of your DSL 2740B so that it will restore back to the main configuration of the system. (to reset your DSL 2740B try to look for a small button on it. then press according to standards then your done. Good luck and i hope this steps will help you accurately. God Bless.

Driver


not sure why you will need USB drivers for your adsl2+ modem/ wireless router and 4 port LAN switch. It would help you had provided the model number.

The device uses a LAN ethernet port to connect to the computer. You will need atleast one computer to be on the LAN port for setting it up. Once setup is complete you can use wireless connection for every computer.

The user manual & drivers or the DSL-2740B which appears similar to your product description
http://www.dlink.com.au/tech/Download/download.aspx?product=DSL-2740B

Not sure if you need these. Your computers will need LAN or wireless drivers to connect to this DLINK modem/ router.

Good luck

With an Ethernet cable, connect your computer _directly_ to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem), bypassing the D-LINK router.

Wireless router


Yes, you can use wireless router with the modem. I guess the actiontech DSl router that you have is also Wireless one. If so, you can use just the DSL router for wireless connection. If you really want to use Dlink router with it, Connect the ( WAN port ) of the Dlink router to the ( LAN Port ) of the Action tech modem [ modem(LAN)-->Dlink(WAN) ]. Once you do this connection, better to do power cycle ( unplug the pwr to the dlink first, then, disconnect the pwr to action tech - wait 1min and plug the pwr to modem, wait for DSL light to be solid , then put the pwr back to dlink ). Make sure DSL light on the modem solid, internet light & WLAN light on the link glowing.
- Make Hardwire connection between the computer to Dlink and check the ip address on the computer whether it acquires the ip address from Dlink and then check the internet connection on the computer, it has to work. if computer not getting ip from dlink, try restarting computer.
- If hardwire connection on the dlink works fine and check the wireless connection.
