D-Link DSL-2640T Wireless G ADSL2+ Router: Detailed Review



Decent for a small network

The D-Link DSL-2640T is a three-in-one device—an ADSL modem, a 4-port router, and a wireless access point all packaged in stylish silver-grey plastic.

The D-Link DSL-2640T is just what you need if you have more than one computer and need to share your ADSL broadband connection. It is ADSL2/2 compliant, and is therefore capable of theoretical download speeds up to 24 Mbps. 802.11 b/g wireless capability allows it to transmit data at up to 54 Mbps. The 4-port fast Ethernet switch lets you connect four computers to it, and you can also add a few laptops to your home network using the integrated Wi-Fi access point.

You can set up the DSL-2640T in a jiffy. The easy-to-understand browser interface has a Wizard that puts you in the driver’s seat and lets you configure the router the way you want. Security has not been neglected either, with support for enhanced wireless security using WPA and WPA2. The integrated firewall with NAT, SPI, and DoS capabilities further strengthen the safety of your PC from hackers. You can even block out offensive URLs or complete domains.

Though we could not test the ADSL performance, we tested the Wi-Fi capabilities of the device. Scores were average compared to the other two ADSL routers we tested earlier this year. It could transfer sequential files at a rate of 1.22 MBps in the closest zone, while it managed 0.55 in the farthest zone, putting it a shade ahead of the ASUS WL-600G but a step behind the Netgear DG834G as far as overall performance is concerned.

D-Link has provided an ADSL splitter so you can connect the telephone line to the router and still not miss a call. The accompanying CD contains a manual and a Wizard that are good enough to ease any of your worries about installing the device. In sum, this is a decent ADSL router for setting up a small office or home network.

          Ok I got a hold of several things. The problem is that the HFCL Connect has done the MAC address binding of their modem with my account. That's why I am unable to connect to internet, even after applying the settings correctly. Anybody knows a method for MAC address cloning of TP-Link TD-W8951ND? Because I am not able to find anything related to...

          Well, the card did use to work before. It stopped working just one fine morning. So don't think it's a driver issue. I install drivers from the official cd which came with the card. :( I will try to find alcohol to rub it with. Will nail polish removal work?
