Excerpt: I would recommend this router to anyone, whether it is for home or small business use. This is why… I bought the router a good 12 months ago, as of yet, I have not been able to report any downtime what-so-ever that is due to the router. It's so easy to use - straight out of the box, plug in, enter your ISP connection settings and you're ready to go!
Summary: I believe that this router is a fine product. like others i also had problems entering a username. This can be solved easily: 1.back up config.xml to your pc 2.find and edit the username part and other parts (if need be) within the config file 3.reload the config file The router only accepst a 32 char input for username but doesn't mean cant use a longer username
Summary: The first major problem with this unit is that with the shipped firmware, the maximum number of characters you can enter for your adsl username is 32 - ours was 33 characters long! I therefore swapped it with a Netgear modem/router which we used on another connection (with a shorter username!) and it worked fine for about 2 days and then the dsl carrier was reported as being down.
Summary: I've been using this router for a couple of months now, and, so far, I'm happy with its performance. Set up went smoothly - taking only minutes to do. The Web interface is okay. You can also telnet to it if need be, although I couldn't log in as the "admin" user like the browser. I had to log in as the "root" user. Looking at /etc/passwd only "root" exists. I stick to the browser.
Summary: I got my D-Link 504T router with my new PC last October. Yes, it is very easy to set up. And, yes, I might have had no hesitation in recommending it to anyone thinking of buying one but, sadly, I can't. You see, after just a couple of days it started dropping off-line (Log records 'DSL carrier is down'). So I phoned D-Link support and, after waiting over an hour before they answered, they fobbed me off with a small configuration change.
Summary: This Router is a really great product. I'd recommend it to anyone. From taking it out of the box, it took me literally 6 minutes and 37 seconds (I timed it, :D) to set up 2 Computers and an XBox, and get them all to connect to the internet. Very reasonably priced, and a very well, quality built, router.
Excerpt: With my last hardware review (of an 802.11g card) I realise I may have lost many readers by simply going in at the deep end… it was appropriate for that review (where only users familiar with wireless networking technology would even consider the purchase) – but the same can’t be said for this bit of kit which represents one way to take advantage of broadband internet over a standard BT phone line.
Pros: Router & Modem in one box .
Cons: User interface, documentation, functionality .
