FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — D-Link today announced its ADSL2+ Modem with Wireless N300 Router (DSL-2740B), providing ADSL subscribers the ability to upgrade their existing Wireless G device to a high-performance integrated modem and Wireless N router. Featuring 802.11n wireless technology for increased range and speeds of up to 300 Mbps, the DSL-2740B significantly outperforms previous-generation 802.11g wireless devices, allowing consumers to enjoy streaming multimedia content and VoIP calls over a fast, high-quality wireless connection.
“Many current ADSL subscribers suffer from a slow and restricting broadband connection due to their old Wireless G devices,” says Eli Gavra, general manager and vice president, Service Providers Business Unit, D-Link North America. “With the new DSL-2740B, users can increase the speed and range of wireless bandwidth in their homes by upgrading their existing broadband connection to a Wireless N device.
