  • 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

    • You should use only one modem. Connect wireless modem to the CAT5/6 from the LAN card of PC to any of the four outputs from the wireless router. Go to chrome or any browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press enter. The router setting page will open. Default user name and password both are ‘admin’ follow the procedure given above and you can connect.

    also tell me whether i can use by bsnl 3g data card as an input source with my dlink 2750u or not so that i can use it as wifi.

    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.

    The name of my previous modem is BSNL ADSL 2+CPE/Wireless Router. It supports 4 fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) Interface. But I was facing some problems with its Internet speed some days ago, so when I saw the new D LINK DSL 2750U modem at amazon I decided to buy it. But before buying it I’am confused with it that it will provide connection in my desktop computer as well as provide a WIFI network to my android phone simultaneously or not. I would also like to have an advice from you that like my previous modem this new one supports 4 fast Ethernet Interface or not ? So please give me a perfect answer for my questions.
    What are the difference between dlink DSL 2750U & DSL 2730U modem ?
