Excerpt: Set up wi-fi for my inlaws using DIR-605L as wireless access point. Tip: to set it up as an access point (i.e. not a router, just adding wireless access to a router) you have to select it on the wireless menu. Only then can you set a different ip address than default. It works fine.
Summary: Picked up this unit after MANY outages at our home in the mountains. We had been experiencing frequent outages with our old router. We've had this one up and working for about three weeks with only one outage! Just hope it continues on the positive track!
Summary: The setup instructions seemed simple enough but I'm having trouble and unfortunately their tech support is online only so I'll have to start email communication for some assistance. I even tried calling my internet provide. After being on the phone with them for 2 hrs still no luck. If I cant figure it out within the week I'll just return it and get another Belkin which was my first router.
Finally called DLink technical support got a very nice young man

Summary: I purchased this wireless router to use with my new Hughnet Internet service. Well I got it to work sorta with my two Mircosoft Widows laptop and tablet, but would not connect with two Kindles or two Android cell phones! Worked with it for two-three days. Searched the Internet for solutions, emailed DLink with no success. Finally called DLink technical support got a very nice young man.
Summary: Worked awesome for the first 30 minutes... until I tried to set some firewall settings and create rules for internet access times for various PC's around the house. Upon every reboot to change/keep settings, the D-Link would go into a "busy" loop and would not come out until I did a full reset and started from ground zero on install and re-input all settings. It got old real fast..
Summary: For me this is a great item, have a great price. Nice signal, Its working very well, the only thing i dont like so much this have not a turn on/off botom, you have to take it from the outlet but this is an small difficult.No problem about it.
Summary: I knew that opinion was split, but I took a chance, and I lost. Although setup was easy, the device could not maintain a steady internet connection over wifi. If you plugged in to the back, it acted as a fine router, but it would just randomly drop the wifi connection. I replaced it with a Linksys router and it worked fine.
Summary: it is powerful and very fast speed for my family including one tv box, about 5 cell phone and pc. our house is 2 floor and we can get strong and fast speed any where. i am using d link for more than 10 yeras and be very satisfied with its excellant quality and technical service.
Summary: This router was super simple to set up to my internet modem. It was simple to connect it to every device I need for wireless internet throughout my residence. I am considering recommending this router to a friend who needs a wireless set up for her apartment. I and most of my friends are apartment dwellers and the signal is decent in our apartments, but I cannot speak for a home.
