The D-Link ADSL2/2+ Modem with 4-Port Ethernet Router (DSL-2540B) is a 2-in-1 device that combines the function of a DSL modem and 4-port 10/100 Ethernet router. The DSL-2540B supports the latest ADSL2/2+ standards to provide higher performance (up to 24Mbps downstream and 3.5Mbps upstream) and longer reach from your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM). You can also create a wired network to share your high-speed Internet connection, documents, photos, music, videos, printers, and Network Attached Storage (NAS).

Unlike a dial-up Internet service, a DSL Internet connection is always on so that you do not have to wait to access the Web. Setting up the DSL-2540B is simple since it automatically detects your DSL settings to quickly establish a connection to the Internet. With support for TR-067, compatibility with your ISP's infrastructure is ensured. This device also supports TR-069, which automatically updates the firmware and other settings when they become available from your ISP.

The DSL-2540B includes a built-in QoS engine that helps prioritize Internet traffic to enable smooth Internet phone calls (VoIP) and lag-free online gaming. In addition, this device includes Dual Active Firewalls (SPI and NAT) to help protect your network from potential attacks from across the Internet. With a built-in 4-port 10/100 Ethernet router, up to four network-ready computers or devices can simultaneously be connected to the DSL-2540B.

Whether it is for a home user who wants to share high-speed Internet access or for a small office that needs Internet access for conducting essential business activities, the DSL-2540B ADSL2/2+ Modem with 4-Port Ethernet Router (DSL-2540B) is the ideal all-in-one broadband and wired networking solution.

The D-Link ADSL2/2+ Modem with 4-Port Ethernet Router (DSL-2540B) combines the function of a high-speed DSL modem and 4-port router. With automatic scanning and detection of your DSL settings, the DSL-2540B quickly sets up your Internet connection. Easily create a wired network and share a high-speed Internet connection while allowing access to shared files, music, photos, and printers with multiple computers.

This D-Link ADSL2/2+ Modem with 4-Port Ethernet Router (DSL-2540B) is TR-067 compliant, ensuring that it will work with your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) infrastructure. It is also TR-069 compliant, which automatically updates the firmware and other settings when they become available from your ISP.

Duane from Georgia

Strengths: Lightning Fast!!! Works great with Bellsouth DSL service. Automatically downloads the correct DSL settings from the provider, Inexpensive

Weaknesses: none

Summary: This is a great modem by D-link. Setup was easy(install software first)and this modem is super fast. I have Bellsouth DSL-Lite service for $20/month which is only suppose to give me up to 768kb/s download and 128ksb/s upload. I have gained an extra 300-350kb/s download about an extra 75-100kb/s upload. This is a superior upgrade from the old, slow, dinosaur of a modem provided by Bellsouth. Save by buying it at CostCentral!!

Strengths: Easily installed; compact; awesome, reliable and STABLE connection

Weaknesses: none

Summary: I recommend this modem / Ethernet router. Have used D-Link in the past with other systems. I really like not having two separate units.

Fritz

Strengths: Full-featured DSL router provides far greater configurability than most units shipped from the DSL service provider

Summary: We bought this to replace a Netopia DSL modem provided by Bellsouth with our DSL line. The interface on the Netopia didn't provide the configurability we needed (you couldn't even set an administrative password, thus allowing anyone on the LAN access to its settings). This D-Link modem/router does everything we need.

packet man

Strengths: Easy to configure and get up and running. Good manual on CD. Good firewall, lots of config options for experienced router jockeys.

Weaknesses: None that are obvious in the time I've been using it.

Summary: Great DSL modem/router. Firewall works great, port testing software could not find any open ports. Supports Qos.
