Since your using an adsl modem, possible that is a problem with your adsl box or your adsl line. I would suggest you to call your ISP so they can further check your line and also your adsl modem .

You may also contact dlink so they can perform a firmware update to your modem , below is the link for their website.

SOURCE: Need latest firmware file for

It is responding... you are probably suffering the same issue as me. For some reason the MTU setting is causing issues with accessing the D-LINK website. The 2730B however does not allow you to change that setting anywhere (how ironic).
Your option is to use something like DrTCP (assuming you are using Windows) to change the setting on your local machine. Suggest changing to 1492 for the adapter you are using to connect to the Net (should make sense once you run the application).
This is what I did, and worked for me. Hope this helps you.
P.S. I'm about to throw the thing in the bin. It's got so many issues, the last D-Link product I ever buy.

First:
In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.

Second:
There a great article at General Router Setup.

Internet signal keeps dropping


There's a lot of possiblities here.If you have a DSL/dialtone lineshare,listen for noise on the line(humming,crackling static,dropped calls).If you have a dry loop(DSL only),connect a phone in place of the modem and see if it has an "intercept" message(like "you have tried to call a number out of your service area" or something like that).If it does,you can use a phone to check the line when the DSL drops(don'touforget to put an inline filter on it).If the DSL light doesn't go out when the Internet light does,it is NOT a problem with the physical line.This would be an issue with the modem or the equipment at the serving end.( I am a DSL tech,and spend lots of wasted time diagnosing and trying to fix problems that are beyond my reach(central office server issue) or that I didn't need a dispatch for(it is cheaper to send a new modem than to send a tech).

When using the internet quite regulary the dsl connection keeps dropping out it says thomas thompson gateway error cannot connect to site it doesnt matter wether you are playing games or just on the net...


It could be the dsl line or the router. Someone would have to physically run tests of sit and ask you a lot of questions while you did what they asked to determine the cause. It sounds "just a guess " like a signal is getting dropped, perhaps an inline amp would help

I've problem with my ADSL i can't access by wireless??? i don't know why???


Some DSL Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Authentication to establish Internet connection with their end-users. This article will guide you in setting up the router's PPPoE feature.
NOTE: This article assumes that you already have the username and the password for your DSL Internet connection.

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here

NOTE: If you're using a Mac, click here for instructions.

Step 2:
On the Setup tab, click the drop-down arrow for Internet Connection Type then, select PPPoE.

Step 3:
Enter the Username and the Password for your DSL Internet connection.

Step 4:

The internet connection is fine (DSL AT&T).


1. You may have a an IP address conflict.
2. check the device connected to the router
all computer need to be connected at the same time.
3. Bring all the computers up one at a time and this should resolve the address conflict.

Internet connection keeps on dropping


Can't seem to find the manual on it but....
Most DSL/Routers have a connection setting in them with 2 settings.
1) On demand (Connects to internet as needed)
2) Always on (Stays connected to the internet)

Sounds like your DSL/Router is set to option 1

My linksys BEFSR ver.3.1 S/N C2140DA22073, constantly drops my internet cinnection after a few minutes of none activity.


Do you use DSL for your connection?

DSL uses a phone line for the connection, and therefore if your ISP doesn't detect activity after a few minutes, it will drop the line. There is a setting called "keep alive" in your router which will automatically either redial or 'ping' your ISP to make sure this doesn't happen. It's in the basic setup screen; if you're using DSL enable it and set it to 1 minute.
