Great device for small business or home.

Rotimi, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: This is such a great device for what I like to do with my router giving me good control. It has died a few times but the customer service has been wonderful. Each time I called them up they promptly RMAd me without charge. I am afraid what will happen now that I think its been phased out.

Phone Dispair

Irish 555, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: I search in vain for polite words for this product. Still in warranty, it died. Three and one half hours on hold and being sent from one auto system to another, finally connecting with a human "Oh no, that is not handled by us. You have to call this other number.

Older product but still useful

T. Williams, Amazon
9 January 2011
  • Summary: After using a D-Link DIR-655 as my primary router for several years, I purchased the DIR-130 to add IPsec tunnels between my network and a couple of friends' networks for whom I provide remote technical support.

Can't specify a hostname for VPN endpoint

Pete99, Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: It won't let you specify a hostname (e.g. from dyndns.com) for VPN endpoints so if the remote site has a dynamic IP address then you have to type it in manually every time it changes. That's a shame.

Does most of what is should...

Nabidavid, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: As far as a router/gateway goes, the device performs properly with a good set of features, including logging and diagnostic features uncommon among other low-cost routers. The router's built in VPN server functions well with PPTP/L2TP, although authentication is a little slow if you are used to the...

Wish I would have believed the bad reviews

jywmpg, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: Even after reading the poor reviews, I bought two of these because they had the set of features that I needed and I figured that D-Link would have worked the bugs out after a year in service. I was wrong. Both units had trouble simply storing port forwarding rules!

frustration

Roger G. Lindley, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I replaced a DI-808HV with this DIR-130 thinking it was a newer model of the same. It is not. DIR-130 documentation and HELP files do not match menus. HELP files seem to be for DIR-330. HELP files refer to settings which are not available on the DIR-130.

bad replacement information from linksys

Auto parts, Amazon
1 January 2011
  • Summary: We were very unsatisfied with this product. Linksys claims this product replaces the discontinued DI804HV, but it is lacking programming features of the DI804HV. In setting up the VPN's between our locations, there was no way to add an IP address to ping our remote locations.

Locks up unexpectedly

rjd444, Amazon
1 January 2011
  • Summary: I would wake up to the internet being down 2 - 3 times per week. I couldn't access the router's administration page either. I power cycle the router and be back in action until the next time. Couldn't find any other reports of this, except when using VPN, which I'm not.
