Summary: I need this router to keep my old laser printer in operation. Historically the life expectancy is about 2 years of light to moderate use. It does work well and I have had as many as three computers linked to the internet (router) and my laser printer.
Second one I bought; power surge KO;d first 1; makes fine printer-server

Summary: This is one of the few wired routers that has a parallel printer port. This comes in very handy if you still have such a printer (inkjet or laser) that you want to share with your computers, especially Macs and Linux but also any Windows flavor. It also has a WAN port (this would be your ISP - cable or DSL - but you are not required to use that port. I use mine as a standard 4 port Ethernet LAN router/switch (plus providing printer access).
D-link DI-704P-out of support, but works & inexpensive

Summary: This is an obsolete router. However my network uses static IP addressing and a print server for the platemaker. This router fits the bill very well. They do have a heat problem (some of em) as I always keep a spare on hand. My first one died (heat problem)and was replaced by #2 from ebay which is working fine. Just got #3 (ebay) as next backup unit.
Summary: What can I say I paid .99 cents for a D-link router. Works great. It's tough to go wrong with D-Link if there is one thing I have learned you need both a Hardware Firewall and a Software Firewall. It's easy to use, If you need basic security this is the way to go.
Summary: These are fantastic. Very straight forward and easy to use. They're built like tanks and I just bought a second one for backup. There are always a couple are more availble on ebay at great prices. These are now discontinued so get one while you can.
Conclusion: Um bom aparelho, embora já existam opções mais novas e modernas. Um bom roteador, mas abandonei a porta USB para compartilhamento porque não consegui fazer funcionar com o Windows Vista. Com o XP funciona bem com a maioria das impressoras.
Pros: Rápido, Fácil de usar, Interface web para gerenciamento
Cons: Compartilhamento USB requer software especial, Fora de linha
