Product Overview
Product Description
The Verizon® D-Link® DSL-2750B Wireless Gateway provides reliable, high-speed, Internet access to your
existing small office phone line and is capable of data rates hundreds of times faster than a traditional analog
modem. But unlike analog modems, the Gateway allows you to use the same phone line for simultaneous
voice/fax communications and high-speed Internet access, eliminating the need for dedicated phone lines
for voice and data needs. In addition, it supports a variety of networking interfaces along with the following
optional features:
• Four 10/100 Ethernet Ports
• 802.11n wireless technology to provide the best wireless performance
• Advanced firewall features including parental control, access control, and content filtering
• Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Push Button/PIN setup
• UPnP Support
• USB port for sharing music/video/images using a thumb drive or external hard drive
Safety Instructions
• Never install any telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet
locations.
• Never touch non-insulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been
disconnected at the network interface.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
WARNING: Risk of electric shock. Voltages up to 140 Vdc (with reference to ground) may be present on
telecommunications circuits.

Installation
This section will explain how to configure your computers to connect to the gateway, configure the gateway
to connect to the Internet, and set up your wireless clients.
DSL Filters/Microfilters
ADSL signals must be blocked from reaching each telephone, answering machine, fax machine, or any similar
conventional device. Failure to do so may degrade telephone voice quality and ADSL performance.
Install a microfilter if you desire to use the DSL-equipped line jack for telephone, answering machine, fax
machine or other telephone device connections. Microfilter installation requires no tools or telephone
rewiring. Just unplug the telephone device from the baseboard or wall mount and plug in a microfilter and
then plug in the telephone device.
You can purchase microfilters from your local electronics retailer, or contact the original provider of your DSL
equipment.

WPS
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) System is a simplified method for securing your wireless network during the
“Initial setup” as well as the “Add New Device” processes. The Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) has certified it across different
products as well as manufactures. The process is just as easy, as pressing a button for the Push-Button Method
or correctly entering the 8-digit code for the Pin-Code Method. The time reduction in setup and ease of use
are quite beneficial, while the highest wireless Security setting of WPA2 is automatically used.
Push Button
Step 1:Select Push Button from the drop-down and then click the Go button to start the WPS process.
Step 2: Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your wireless client. Some clients may require you to launch its
software utility and click a WPS button. Please refer to your wireless client’s user guide for more information.
Step 3: Allow 1-2 minutes for the devices to communicate. Once complete your client will connect to the gateway.
Client PIN Code
A PIN is a unique number that can be used to add the router to an existing network or to create a new network.
You will need to get the PIN number from one of your wireless clients. Please refer to your wireless client’s user
guide for more information.
Step 1: From your wireless client, write down the PIN and activate/start the WPS process.
Step 2: Within 2 minutes from the Gateway, select Client Pin Code from the drop-down, enter the PIN number
in the box, and then click the Go button.

computer/device. You must specify the starting and ending address of the IP address pool (refer to the next
page).
DNS Server: Select DHCP Server from the drop-down menu (default setting) if you want the Gateway to
automatically assign your wired and wireless clients their network settings automatically. If

Firewall Settings
Overview
This section explains how to configure your Router’s firewall security features. The Router’s firewall security
settings allow you reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your network by prohibiting certain types of
inbound and outbound network traffic and by allowing you to configure specific firewall rules.
To change your firewall security level, click the option next to the desired security setting. Next, click Apply to
allow the changes to take effect.
Maximum Security High security level only allows basic Internet functionality. Only Mail, News, Web, FTP, and
(High): IPSEC are allowed. All other traffic is prohibited.
Typical Security Like High security, Medium security only allows basic Internet functionality by default.
(Medium): However, Medium security allows customization through NAT configuration so that you can
enable the traffic that you want to pass.
Minimum Security Low security setting will allow all traffic except for known attacks. With Low security, your
(Low): Gateway is visible to other computers on the Internet.

Port Triggering
The Port Triggering feature allows you to forward a range of ports to an IP address on your local network (LAN)

ports.
IMPORTANT: Using various Internet applications depends on the Router’s firewall settings. Make sure that the
Router’s firewall is set to Medium Security or lower to take advantage of all the port forwarding features.
Firewall settings take precedence over port forwarding services configured in the Router. For example, if the
firewall is set to Medium Security, this will block ICMP packets even if the ICMP service is enabled. If a port
forwarding service is not working, try setting the firewall to a lower setting.
