Answers :

Yes d link ndsl 2740R is good router.
Also you can change channel type if you get poor signal.
For that connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then access it with following link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then click on wireless then change channel type 4 , 6 and 11 are best try all 1 by 1 and set which give best signal.
Save settings and restart router to take effect.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.
