    Hi,
    I have a broadband connection of BSNL connected to my desktop through a modem supplied by them which works fine on my desk top. I have bought a D_Link DSL-2730-U model wireless 150 ADSL2+ Modem Router. I have connected it to LAN port 4 of BSNL modem. Though the wireless signal from the D-link is shown as strong in my laptop or nexus-4 phone. It displays that it is not connected to internet. When I tied to follow the instruction manual for installation on inserting their set up wizard CD in the desk top, the screen do not go beyond the page where it keeps repeatedly ask me to ckeck that ethernet cable is connected and modem is power on. How can I activate the wireless router function of the D-Link modem connecting it to LAN port $ of BSNL broadband modem? Raghuram

    Sri Videshi Rawat Ji as well as Divyaiji I’m sure your problem concerns non working of OTHER WiFI devices like laptop(usually wifi provided),smart fones, phablets etc.wirelessly for net connection with wired Broadband of BSNL.
    From my personal experience U will definitely find result if U follow the process described in the write up above. I have tried it on DLINK2730U MODEM and it worked incredibly good on first attempt.Of course I didn’t try for Mac filter for addl.safety.
