Try "admin" as name and blank password. If this won't work, your router might have a set username and password and if you don't know it, You might need to reset your router then try the credentials I gave you.
Be reminded that if you reset the router, you will lose all current settings you have and it will revert it to factory default settings.

Hope this helps.

Internet light on modem is solid red

How about the DSL light?
If its solid green then your problem could be a mistyped ISP username/password in the router, or your subscription expired.

Dsl-2740b router connections freezes

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can set-up form scratch.

Setup of d link dsl-2740b on my computer

the dsl connection is your broadband signal. check the router box. if the dsl light is off or flashing on the front, the setup will not work. this light needs to be solid. remove all devices from telephone sockets in your house, connect just one filter and your new router to it. check the dsl signal, if the light is solid green. the problem is with the physical setup in your house. If the dsl light still flashes contact your isp or broadband supplier.

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

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

Good luck

My wireless doesnt broadcast. im using a dlink dsl 2740b router

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.

Where is the 8-Digit PIN from the router label on a D-Link DSL-2740B? I've looked all over the device, and through the papers in the box, but nothing?

This 8-digit number is displayed on a label attached to the bottom of the router, but might also be determined using simple brute-force.
