to clarify some information

Techie with a problem., Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: It should be noted that there are two 2740b based types the n615 and n300. I noticed that several people mix up the two that have almost identical specifications. However the 615 is not so hot on the wireless side where as the 300 is. The N300 has better ADSL 2 & 2+ abilities but less accessible features. If you are not into configuring a large amountof features or go as far as DD-WRT features then the n300 is fine.

Great range booster

Henny Reichman "shelly", Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: D-Link DSL-2740B D-Link jumped on the draft-802.11n merry-go-round a few months ago with its RangeBooster N650 router which offers a good range of features but ultimately failed to impress in the wireless performance stakes. The DSL-2740B represents its next stab at the high-speed networking market and adds an integrated ADSL 2/2+ modem and a few extra features to the mix.

Garbage

Volio, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I been a D-Link user all my life, and needless to say I always been happy with the quality and functionallity . But not with this product. I bought this item thinking I would get the one on the picture which seems well build, tough and of good quality which I was used to by D-Link. But for my surprise I got this item [...]B, which at first sight looked ugly, simple, light and build cheap in general.

Proceed with Caution

J. Asch "jasch", Amazon

  • Summary: Please be aware DLink changed the product. You're no longer getting the one pictured above (alluminum). Now you get a cheap-looking black plastic one. It seems that D-Link decided to lower manufacturing costs as well as quality. Mine worked for 4 hours, after that all lights went out, and it never powered up again.

POS

TechnoTired, Amazon

  • Summary: I used the older 2640b for several years. I also used them and the 2320b for some of my DSL clients. I decided to upgrade and bought 2 of the 2740b. They worked fine as a modem and wired router. But, I never got either of them to show up as a wireless device on my older laptop. They were supposed to be compatible with all wifi standards.

DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM IT IS NOT WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE

George Jones, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to get the RangeBooster DSL modem with all of the features that are mentioned on this page and was willing to pay more for it. However, what I got was the "DSL-2740B" which is a much lesser product than what is advertised here. If you look up the "DSL-2740B" you will find a two antenna dsl modem/router, not this three antenna unit that is being advertised here for HALF THE PRICE - 55 dollars!!!!
