Expert Review

  • Summary: You’ve probably never heard of a Cloud Router before. Neither did we, that is, until D-Link came along to introduce the DIR-605L Wireless N 300 Cloud Router. To clarify on the term, a Cloud Router essentially lets you access and manage the router over the Internet. Yes, other routers can be configured so, but the process to do so is severely cumbersome. The Cloud Router, on the other hand, makes it easy to a fault. The Cloud Router looks just like any router does.
  • Pros: Easy to use and configure, Remote management, Affordable
  • Cons: No Gigabit Ethernet

D-Link DIR-605L Cloud Router

4 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, I would recommend the DIR-605L to people who are willing to sacrifice some performance for the ability to monitor network activity from afar. The router’s lack of 5GHz support, in particular, is disappointing for city dwellers, who often knock each other off the narrow 2.4GHz band that the Cloud Router supports and the 2-by-2 antenna array supports theoretical top speeds of only 300 mbps (new routers with a larger number of antennas are rated at up to 600 mbps).
  • Pros: Remote monitoring and control via iOS or Android; option to hide geeky networking options
  • Cons: Limited to 2-by-2 antenna array (300 mbps max); switch is 10/100 ethernet only; no support for 5GHz band
