D-Link DSL-2740R review

There’s a big sticker on the DSL-2740R that says: “Stop! Insert CD First”. So we did as we were told, only to discover that the Set-Up Wizard on the CD doesn’t work with Macs. Instead we had to read through a long PDF manual that doesn’t include even a single mention of the Mac.

Thankfully, Mac users can still configure the router using its web browser interface, and we were relieved to see that this includes pre-programmed settings for most of the UK’s main internet service providers. As a result, we soon had it up and running with our BT Internet account.

OUR VERDICT

The router itself is small and neatly designed, with four additional Ethernet ports for wired connections. It’s quite well priced too, coming in at a little under £80 from a number of online retailers. However, D-Link could still do a bit more to cater to Mac users who don’t already have some experience of setting up routers.
