Useles piece of ..... Garbage!!

Andrew C5, Amazon
3 October 2014
  • Summary: Useless... Stay away from it. This is a hardware update from the old DIR-412-W but this "hardware update" adds compatibility for newer 3G modems (modems that are not available in most areas) and because of this the hardware update is not compatible with the old 3G modems (the ones used in most areas). DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS "ROUTER"!!, Its useless!! Get the old model.

Outdated 3G Modem Router!

Rodger C., Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: This is an outdated device, last firmware release was in 2010, so that means only datacard sticks from 2010 will work, any brand new datacard stick will not work on this device. I would only recommend buying it if you have old datacard that is compatible with this router.

Doesnt work in any other country...

christiaan, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: This router doesnt contain any setup selection for any other country except USE & canada... I traveled to South-Africa, & tried setting up there, but was unable to due to the setup not having the ISP selection for south africa. Had to purchase a new one there... Definitely not recommended for anyone traveling.

I would not recommend this item. It does not work as described

Tom R, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: This product does not work as described. It will not work with the UMW190VW wireless adaptor. I spent 3 hours on the phone with D-Link tech support and even spoke with a supervisor. They all could only read from a pre-typed script and troubleshoot in this way. They were not able to tell me why this adaptor would not work with their product when it was tested. I even had Verizon on the phone with them and got nowhere. I would not recommend this product.

Wasted money - do your research first

OKCanant, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: The device turned on and I was able to make a wireless connection between it and my computer but my AT&T modems would not turn on. The Amazon advertisment clearly stated compatible with various large carriers including AT&T. The AMAZON statement is an extreme exaggeration of reality. Perhaps some few AT&T modems work. I have Sierra 3G wireless Shockwave and the newer Sierra wireless 4G Momentum. Neither of which will work with this device. Wasted Money.

DIR-412 Has outdated firmware!

A. Talbot, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: The firmware on this router was last updated in 2010. That means if you happen to have a more updated 3G stick (like a E303 Huwawei) that it won't work. It didn't work in Costa Rica with a new ICE 3G stick. After literally hours of troubleshooting by multiple people and with NO HELP from DLINK we found that an old 3G stick would work but a newer one would not. It is appalling that D-Link has chosen not to update the firmware so that it will work with more recent sticks.
