Summary: This router has been nothing but frustration; I bought it because I thought the idea of two computers sharing a printer through one router was a great idea; and it is....a great idea that is. I have to reboot the router at least once a week, frequently not having access to the internet and/or printer. Frequently I get LAN errors; when I bypass the router everything works great.
Summary: ok, so the thing has all the features in the world except a programable firewall. Competition for the feature set (8ports, firewall, router, and print server) is NIL. Great feature set for home networkers (Hint to NETGEAR and LINKSYS.) It would be very nice if they would make it so it lasts longer than 1 1/4 years. Yep, bought September of '04, replaced the super-cheap cHINESE transformer at about 6 months. Now totally dead at 15 months of age.
No Firewall Administration Options as showed in DLink Page

Summary: I recently purchase this item, I found that there is no Firewall Administration Options in the menu as showed in the DLink Product Page Manual (Everything else is good). I'm talking with the Dlink support and have no solution. DLink support team says "There are no firewall options on this router. To open ports on these routers you will use vserver and applications. Thank you for networking with D-Link.
Firewall support is not like like D-Link Advertises

Summary: All the features work well and are a breeze to setup, except one. This router does all the things you would expect it to in a very stable manner, except one. If you check the D-Link Web site for the manual of this exact router model. You will find some rather nice firewall features (My whole reason for getting this router actually). When you set up the router, you will find that there is no firewall button. It absolutely does not exist.
Summary: My new 707P, in operation over a month, seamlessly replaced separate a SonicWALL SOHO firewall and 8-port 10/100 switch for less than the cost of Sonic's annual support, plus adding network print server capability for my HP LaserJet 5MP. I didn't need all of Sonic's extra-cost features (VPN, virus, content filtering, etc.).
Excerpt: Vor gut einem halben Jahr hat unser wunderbarer, alter Router das zeitliche gesegnet. Also musste ganz schnell ein neuer her, ohne Internet wird das ganze Haus ziemlich schnell nervös =) Mal kurz zur Situation: In unserem Haus müssen ganze drei Rechner, über zwei Etagen verteilt mit der DSL Flatrate versorgt werden. Als wir das damals eingerichtet haben, gabs noch kein Wireless, zumindest noch nicht zu einem Preis, den wir uns leisten konnten.
