This is the only method that DSL modems can be used in a different configuration:
Turning a router into an AP.

Thank you sir for your reply. I want ask for the 1st step "Plug the power into the router" that mean just plug in direct to the AP router? Meanwhile host router plug off? According for 7th step IP address on the computer turn to route ip http://192.168.#.1  or still use AP route ip? For host router channel it's better set for 1 or 6 or auto? because for now i just set auto channel (Host Router)

Yes.Turn it ON.

IP address of the PC should be 192.168.#.49 as a temporary IP address. I think in your case, use 192.168.1.49 since default IP address of the DSL modem is 192.168.1.1.

Use channel 11 higher for the main host router, For the wired AP, use 1.

Ok already setup AP router 192.168.#.49  and hosted modem is 192.168.1.1. but there's internet connection when connect the router (LAN port) using an Ethernet cable from hosted router to AP router. Want to know where can i find this "Recommend using Mixed G and N or Single G or N modes" (Dlink DSL 2705E)

Log into the 2750s web page and look for wireless settings there.
