D-Link DIR-605L Cloud Router

MacWorld
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

  • Pros: The entry-level D-Link DIR-605L Cloud Router is affordable and easily manageable via the Internet, using a browser or mobile apps. The networking device also offers decent performance and a stable wireless signal.
  • Cons: Apart from the cloud-based novelty, the DIR-605L is a frills-free wireless router that lacks many common features found in others, such as Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band, the support for the IPv6, or guest networking.

Expert Review

PC Advisor
5 April 2012
  • Excerpt: As Wi-Fi routers go, the D-Link Cloud Router (DIR-605L) isn't a top performer--it has the basic 2x2 antenna array required for 802.11n certification, and its LAN ports support only 10/100 (not gigabit) ethernet. But it boasts some easy-to-use remote-access features that should appeal to small businesses and consumers who want to keep close tabs on network activity without spending a lot of money.
