Didn't work for me.

ManuelGarcia, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I have ordered two of these and neither worked.. When the first one wouldn't bring up the configuration screen, I call DLink support. After a support person had me do a bunch of tests, they decided the unit was bad and told me to return it.

Terrible company, products, documentation, and support!

Not for me., Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: I tried several times to set up this product with the enclosed instructions. I then tried several times after reading and view on-line help pages or videos. I then called their tech support number. After over an hour on the phone, Dlink could not get their product to work right!

Unreliable

Gunther Arnold Retz, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. I get stressed and upset everytime I have to change configuration. As a repeater I gave up on trying. Really useless. It worked only in hotspot mode at home, I am trying to set. up it as a hotspot on another router for hours... now I am sad and miserable.

Didn't Work

wishin, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to pickup wifi in areas around the property where the signal was weak. Contacted seller who promptly told me that's not the intended purpose despite what the literature states. Called the toll free number, but signal was still inadequate.

  • Summary: My product came with a error to install and the answer of the D-LInk System (Case ID is C6431665) was that the suport is not valid for outside of USA, even bought in the country. Try another brand.

These things are terrible!

Brent Orford, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I got one of these to give as a gift, and another for myself as I liked the feature set so much. It's pretty cool to be able to use this as a Router, wifi hotspot or repeater. It's small size was ideal for travel - being able to turn your hotel room's wired connection into wireless sounded pretty...

802.11G only

cnconan, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this item a couple of month ago to use in a hotel. It was used to broadcast the wired connection. However, the 802.11n wireless signal was so weak that all my devices can only connect to the router via 802.11G. The loss of connection speed is obvious! Had to return it.

Sick of Impossible to Set Up Hardware

Martin Focazio "Marty", Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: There's not much more to be said than this product did not work for me at all. The instruction sheet, which includes a whole lot of words and pictures, but precious little in the way of information, was useless in every way in debugging why I could not ever get to the router setup page, despite...

Incompatibility with the D-Link router

Marcelo, Amazon
22 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this device to operate as a wireless signal repeater. I have a router D-Link Dir 645 that provides my wireless network and the D-Link DIR-505L simply does not recognize your signal. It detects the other networks, but not the one I have.
