Works well, linited life expectancy

walterp2567, Ebay

  • 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

chandollar, Ebay
15 July 2010
  • 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.

D-Link DI-704P

halfbreed!!, Ebay
16 August 2009
  • 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.
