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 started from ground zero on install and re-input all settings. It got old real fast..

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  • Excerpt: I don't know how long this router sat on the shelf, but as it turns out the firmware was 2 version out-of-date and the router would not connect to the internet until a firmware update was performed. And this took a couple calls to D-Link tech support in India I'm guessing (they wouldn't say) and after much trial and error with tech support in getting the router on-line.
  • Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

Impossibly complex to install

Charles E. Bowers, Amazon
15 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. Then, if one tries to use the online manual, its length and complexity are also daunting.

It's as cheap as you think it is.

Brandon, Amazon

  • 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. There would be a device using wi fi on the network and meanwhile I'd be sitting there with my laptop unable to connect. Contacted D-Link support and got some sort of robotic answer in return. Unhelpful.

Not worthy

Anindya Sundar Mallick, amazon.in

  • 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. The only reason was to change was I've changed my ISP and the previous ISP provides rj11(adsl) line and the current ISP gives me rj45 line.

I expected a much bettter product.

  • Summary: Automatically logs off after 60 seconds if you have logged in the admin page. You need to use IE for proper functioning. User interface is horrible. It can do little to prevent DDoS attacks.

Would not recommend.

Andrei Curelea, Amazon
24 October 2014
  • Summary: Speed is much lower than advertised, getting only 30Mbps on WiFi on a strong signal. Also, it will just periodically stop working and require a reconnect. Would not recommend.

not happy

S RAJESH MENON, amazon.in
27 July 2014
  • Summary: The router is working fine since it's been hardly a month that I bought it. The disappointment is that onvthe site It claimed that the router can easily work in a 1000 Sq feet house with walls and can send strong signals throughout the house, cause of which I bought a twin antenna than single, but it doesn't work in main living room which is the biggest space in the whole house. Any suggestions pls!
