Check that its firewall is on before connecting to phone line!

Summary: It works as it should and is easy to configure using the wizard utility. Simply set an access password, enter your country, ISP username & password. That's it! it tells you, and you are tempted to connect up and leave alone. However... My one has its firewall *off* and remote access enabled by default! You will only discover this by checking under the 'advanced' tab. Most consumers don't expect to have to do this if a wizard is supposed to set it up for you!
Summary: Bought this to link to my Asus RT N66U router and have spent a week trying to get it to work in bridge mode without success, the Asus simply does not see it. Now biting the bullet and coughing up the cash for a Draytek Vigor 120 which I know will work. The D Link is cheap for a reason - don't buy it.

Summary: Working perfectly in bridge mode using PPPoE Enabled Bridge mode, configured appropriate ADSL settings, then disable DHCP. Connected up like this ADSL Socket --> DSL-320B --> Router (or some other PPPoE supporting device). Ignore the bad reviews, if you have some idea of what you're doing then this rocks.
Summary: I read the comments and thought well it seems that it does the job. I couldn't be more wrong. I installed the gui interface decent but that's kind of standard these days. The rj45 cable got stuck on the port and took me ages to disconnect it; I even thought well maybe and I installed it wrong. I tried again, it click; it looked good. Tried to take it out, no joy. The rj 11 cable that came with the modem didn't click and was therefore loose.

Summary: In some ways I can understand the negative reviews this (and most other) modem and routers get from frustrated owners - it's one of the few areas that hasn't been made plug-n-play easy and it's difficult to avoid struggling with passwords and obscure networking settings to get things going right. Just to confirm, this modem is what you need if you've got a separate standalone router and want to connect it to a standard phone-line to access standard ADSL broadband.
Summary: The D-Link DSL-320B is cheap - and it's definitely a gamble if you have Airport. In fact it's because it is so cheap that my curiosity overcame me and I thought I'd buy one just to have as a backup modem. The bad reviews didn't bother me as I'm network savvy with 20 years' troubleshooting experience, and rarely do any issues come along that I can't resolve. However, this thing really has got me beat. It works a treat connected directly to both Macs or PCs via ethernet.
