Not rooting for this Router

John Pfeiffer, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • 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...

Works good IF keep working

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I had really good D-Link experience but this is my second D-Link router being returned due to connection drop. I work remotely most of the time and need something reliable. Not recommending to anybody who cares for permanent connectivity .
  • Pros: Good Range , Easy to Set up. Cheap.
  • Cons: Keep dropping connection. All lights on but no connection. I tried using switch functionality only by connecting Access point to it but when stops everything stops. Requires reboot sometimes once in couple days and sometimes several times a day. I switched to back to my old Linksys .

The range is awful

Nathan Jackson, Amazon
19 June 2013
  • Summary: Signal starts to get weak when only about 20-25 feet away from the router. I guess if you only need wifi in 1 room it would be ok but not for a whole house. When I go to the next room over from the den, even with the doors open, the wifi is almost unusable.

Big-time set-up hassles

Brian S., B&H Photo
2 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I don't know how long this router sat on the shelf, but as it turns out the firmware was 2 version out-of-date and the router would not connect to the internet until a firmware update was performed.
  • Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

DIR-506L, its really not the best.

Michael S., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Summary: Thanks to Newegg, this router was updated to the newest firmware by Newegg before being sent to me for testing. I am in their Eggxpert Reviewers program. The routers inability to transmit more than just a short distance away prevented me from doing more serious testing, as there was several people...
  • Pros: Once connected to the device the router control page is nice and simple to use with a pretty nice set of functions. Built in Firewall Very simplistic to set up and use port forwarding All the needed options for setting your wireless channel Wireless security is simple to set up and use on WEP, TK...
  • Cons: This router has a few problems that could keep people from wanting to use it. First, the router setup is not very easy. Most routers I have used before were very simple, often needing just plugged up and it would work. This one is different. I had to plug my computer in directly by cable to acces...

Meh

Kyle C., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Summary: It doesn't seem to like doing heavy streaming/activity for longer than an hour, which really sucks, because everything else about this router is great. It has great range and holds connections well, but doesn't want to work hard for long.
  • Pros: Great range High bandwidth Lots of UI options Easy setup
  • Cons: The UI options aren't always clear. For example, when trying to set up Firewall settings, clicking "save" after making a rule simply loads you to a Schedule page with no explanation or confirmation that your Firewall rule was saved. Making a schedule for the Firewall rule still doesn't save said ...

Impossibly complex to install

Charles E. Bowers, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: After three sessions and 8 hours with a DLink tech, I finally gave up. I have hired a wireless tech to get it working. The meager installation instructs that come packaged with the router are laughably inadequate.

Bad Choice if you use Local Cable Internet

Brijesh Tanna, flipkart.com

  • Summary: This router is not compatible my ISP(HomeNet) which results into frequent auto resets. ISP Comments on frequent resets were "D-link routers are not Compatible with our network" Also tried with Different ISP (5net) but gives same issue. Otherwise product is good.

It's as cheap as you think it is.

Brandon, Amazon
20 January 2015
  • Summary: Was looking for something cheap when switching ISP's. Wanted my own router instead of renting. Saw this on sale and grabbed it up. Started having issues though with devices connecting over wi-fi though.

Not worthy

Anindya Sundar Mallick, amazon.in
19 January 2015
  • Summary: Not so satisfied. My previous 150mbps TP-Link modem has given me 11 mega byte/sec file transfer speed over lan to wifi. But this D-link co-called router which demands it is a 300mbps router gives me only 6 mega byte/sec file transfer with the same devices. It not worth buying it for me.
