Wifi and ADSL work as advertised, but the admin page to set them up is horrific... settings are not where you'd expect them to be, and the forms you fill in details for your ADSL settings are an absolute mess. It works, but took more than an hour to configure ADSL and Wifi. Wish I'd spent a little extra for the Netgear setup.

Paul, South Africa. 23 November 2017

Lasted under 18 months...got itself just out of warranty and gave up the ghost. would not recommend.

Fahiem, South Africa. 17 March 2016

My old router finally gave in and I settled for this unit. Man was I in for a treat. It's well priced, Wifi signal is strong, ADSL seems more stable now and had no fault for the last couple months. I'm happy.

Alan, South Africa. 18 August 2017

works as expected.

Henricus, South Africa. 28 October 2015

Does the job

Jade, South Africa. 2 March 2016

So far so good regarding the router and setup. As I've come to expect though, once again, fast and efficient delivery!

Rinette, South Africa. 9 January 2018

Works great...good price too

Eduan, South Africa. 23 October 2017

Easy setup, great price, good range.

Barry, South Africa. 27 October 2015

Decent, stable and reliable router with very good WiFi range for 5dBi antennas. Note the latter are non-removeable. Easy to setup even without the CD-Method suggested by the vendor. Reasonably customisable, especially given the price point.

Vicky-Lee, South Africa. 21 August 2017

No CD in my box, also the power adapter is faulty, needs to buy new one that works. Could not do set-up because of power adapter issue. So will see how it works once everything is working

Ashley, South Africa. 30 July 2015

10/10 works like a charm. no issues thus far besides the fact that the high gloss black plastic can attract finger prints extremely quickly.

Chris, South Africa. 24 October 2017

Have to reset the router every three days

Fahmida, South Africa. 21 July 2015

excellent router. setup easy and router range is pretty good.

Cameron, South Africa. 2 May 2016

It works very well except the wireless connectivity is very bad, you have to reboot it every time you want to connect to the wireless or it doesn't give you access to the internet

Chris, South Africa. 2 November 2017

Great product for home user ADSL access & WiFi, has all the features a home user would need.

Ahm3d, South Africa. 21 April 2016

The Wi-Fi won't work mostly every Mondays or more often but the LAN still works. No USB. Delivered on 2nd day. seems to work with VPN. 3 weeks in

Chris, South Africa. 7 November 2017

Works as advertised - no hassles.

Willie, South Africa. 18 August 2017

The router is being sold with a power adapter that is based on the United States standards, so it doesn't work in the South African power sockets. It comes with a 2 point adapter (those round ones), but it is also useless because it doesn't fit.

The only way you would be able to user the two point power adapter is, by cutting out certain bits in the rounded two point power socket.

So by the time I realized I couldn't power the router without cutting one of my two point power sockets or by buying a USA to ZA power converter, I was already so frustrated to the point where I just returned the router.

If you buy the same router at Matrix Warehouse, like I did in the past, it comes with the South African standardized power adapter, with a lightning protector that is worth mentioning.

Can't believe that the product is being sold to the South African market as is, and no where in the product description it is specified what power adapter it uses. What a waste of time.

Sean, South Africa. 13 August 2015

Great extended range on this router compared to other ones I have had. Great value for money.

Nated, South Africa. 4 December 2017

have to reset periodically due to wifi malfunctioning

Walter, South Africa. 12 July 2017

I am happy with my router and the delivery was prompt!

Peter, South Africa. 8 December 2017

ADSL account limited to 30 characters so long Telkom login details cannot be configured

Martin, South Africa. 21 September 2017

Works fine, absolutely no issues with performance or build quality as yet.

BUT I have a gripe...

The power adapter supplied is not a standard South African plug. It consists of two parts: a European/UK 3 prong plug that does not fit South African 3 prong plugs and a 2 prong adapter (the fat and round kind) that the 3 prong can plug into. The 2 prong adapter does not fit in the usual sockets you can buy in the shops because the ground from the 3 prong plug gets in the way of the little plastic tabs (the ground protrudes a bit). Your options to fix this are a) buy a South African to Euro converter or b) hack off the tabs on the round 2 prong sockets or c) snap off the ground on the 3 prong plug, which is the reason the round 2 prong doesn't fit in the socket in the first place (not recommended because I'm pretty sure this voids the warranty). Personally I think this is really silly and whoever is supplying the product needs to address it.

Thankfully I just happened to have a converter lying around but for most people the incorrect power adapter plugs are going to make turning this thing on rather difficult.

imraan, South Africa. 6 November 2017

Great product

Noel, South Africa. 17 September 2017

Delivery was quick as is the standard with Takealot, but that is where it ended. Unboxed the unit and tried setting it up as per the instructions with absolutely no success. Spent at least an hour with my service provider going through the setup (which turned out to be totally different to any other router I have setup in the past) only with their help was I successful in getting it to work. After all this I could not get my smart TV to connect to the router. No way does the auto setup work. Was able to eventually get the router and TV to work with the help of an IT expert.
Must say that after all this grief it has turned out to be a stable unit with good coverage.

ELV, South Africa. 6 March 2016

When the router stands idle for a long time it requires a remote reboot from my Galaxy S6 or power cycle since loading web pages becomes very slow.
After rebooting its speed is back to normal. This now happens daily. My daughter experiences the same issue with her connected iPhone 6 and my wife on the computer. I previously had a cheaper Chinese Tenda which did not have the same issue. I expected a lot more from D-Link.

Jonathan, South Africa. 18 May 2017

I just ordered one of the DSL 2740U I just want to find out if it can use the SIM card or it only using line

ozayr, South Africa. 8 September 2017

tried setting this up with my Telkom ADSL line doesn't work any feedback?

Ziyaad, South Africa. 10 January 2018

Great Product had it now for about a month and works great no issues
only 4 stars because of the short adapter

Chantelle, South Africa. 24 July 2017

Great device

Nokusa, South Africa. 7 December 2017

This is the best and affordable router. I love it!

Tom, South Africa. 17 July 2017

Solid router. Does everything a consumer or small business may need.

Order was ready for collection on the day

Shanice, South Africa. 6 November 2017

Its perfect, router runs smoothly, and fast.

Andre, South Africa. 12 October 2017

Haven't unpacked it yet.

Murtaza, South Africa. 28 December 2017

Excellent product. Super easy to setup. Called telkom to ask for the specific dsl tech details and they knew the product also. So super simple

Linda, South Africa. 11 October 2017

Very happy with this little router. Works as it should, easy to set up.

Brad, South Africa. 24 April 2017

Great product. I've had this, the Dlink 2750u, and the asus n14u all within a few weeks of each other. The coverage was better with the dlinks, and from the initial tests, the 2740 seems to be slightly better than the 2750. The units look exactly the same, except the 2740 is a little smaller, doesn't have a USB port, and the aerials are bigger. Unlike the 2750, these aerials cannot be removed. Over all I'm very happy with it.

David, South Africa. 1 May 2015

This router has performed well so far!
Setup was easy with the supplied DVD, all the steps were included without having to go through a manual. It has worked flawlessly since then.
I haven't had a chance to test out the extended range, advanced features or long term reliability yet, so a tentative 4 stars for noe

Justin, South Africa. 28 May 2015

Great modem for this price, basically the same as a 2750U without the USB port. Wifi signal is very strong with the dual antennae, rock solid adsl connection which is why I changed modems. My line conditions are extremely poor, and this holds connection well (at 2Mbps). If you prefer the web setup option without the CD, the router setup page is which you can change at a later stage. Interestingly this is the UAE model, but it works fine in SA. Build quality and looks are great, hi gloss piano black finish.

Great modem all in all!

Michael, South Africa. 14 May 2015

Wifi signal on this device is extremely strong. For the price, the capabilities and build of the device is brilliant. Its user interface to setup is not that great, but certainly does not lack options.

AHMED, South Africa. 18 June 2017

Wi-Fi cuts out/switches off completely after ±4 days. and ONLY works after a power reCycling.WiFi repeater won't help here, No Firmware fix updates seem to have been made, No error light for this WiFi & so most downloads would stop
Site domain blocker/filter does NOT work at all. does seem to be a update of their older models.
Works with my Remote Cctv viewer port forwarding seems to work still. could try adding another WiFi access point to bypass this problem

Jean, South Africa. 25 June 2017

Worked fine for a week. Cause MASSIVE packet loss and latency at 19h00 to 23h00 every night. I switched between this and 2 routers in 20 minutes in the problem time. The router is the cause. Proof from my ISP and Ookla. Somehow it builds up after time. can only be fixed by reverting and updating firmware to have a 24 hour solution. Rinse, repeat. Bottomline, it wont work for gaming. Will work fine for small home usage to download and email. Just expect 1/2 DL speed after a week. Bunch of trash.

Alan, South Africa. 9 May 2017

Amazing experience for the cheapest solution. I plugged it in, went through the easy wizard setup, connected to my line, and it never stopped working. I share the router with others on a large property and the signal is great...better than expected. Thumbs up so far.

Dylan, South Africa. 13 May 2015


Marco, South Africa. 23 February 2016

1 week in, happy with the product.

Trevor, South Africa. 7 May 2015

Affordable and reliable.Solid router for next to nothing.

Louw, South Africa. 20 February 2017

Great ADSL router

Johann, South Africa. 17 February 2017

Very disappointed with this router. Used for a couple of days and already lost connection where I had to do a power reset to get it going again. Not good at all !!
