Connecting a D-Link DSL 2640T wireless router requires more work than setting up a D-Link router for cable Internet. The biggest difference is the DSL authentication process. In order to connect a DSL wireless router, you must obtain the username and password for DSL authentication from your DSL provider. This ensures you are authorised to broadcast wireless Internet. Once you have the username and password, the process is not much different than any other router.
