Good router for good price

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • 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 think there are better products for the price if you don't need the cloud.

  • Summary: The font in the booklet is far to small is almost unreadable. The unit took a very long time to determine my internet setup. Just a basic home ADSL modem should have been easier for it. When it finally set itself up it auto selected chan 1 which is no good because my iPad does not work on chan 1.
  • Pros: Works fine when finnally setup correctly.
  • Cons: Took forever to determine my internet connection. Hard to change Chan.

Envio super deficiente

garvelopucpr, Ebay

  • Summary: El articulo me resulta normal nada del otro mundo, tenia otro de otra marca al cual se le rompió la antena y escoji este ya que en una pagina de WEB lo recomendaron por su valor vs eficiencia. Muchas veces no tengo señal en la Laptop y si en el celular. Bueno me imagino que es normal.

Okay - Eggxpert Review

Allen S., Newegg
31 July 2013
  • Summary: I received this router as part of an Eggxpert review and after using it for months, I can finally write the review. In my opinion is router is average to above average, but the reliability is a concern.
  • Pros: Setting up an average network is very easy. Good antenna and range. A pretty cool iPhone app that I downloaded that can send notifications. Fairly low priced and lots of features. 300N bandwidth and is plenty fast. Good security setup.
  • Cons: Dropped connections once in a while and sometimes requires a reset. My Trendnet router could run for months without needing a reset. Although it has good range, the speed is significantly slower the further away you are. In addition, to access the router up you will need to have a wire connection.

If you are a newbie to networks, then this is for you. Want to hack it, forget it.

TravelNut101, Amazon

  • Summary: I screwed up buying this router. I am used to building and running my own networks and perhaps I did not see the info, actually it isn't there but for those wanting to hack or do anything constructive to this router, forget it.

Mine was faulty

granfury77, Ebay
14 June 2013
  • Summary: Basic router with added ability to access controls remotely via Web. If you get one that works, it's probably fine but mine would only intermittently 'see' the incoming Internet service coming out of my DSL modem.

Not the best router I've used

Greg V., Newegg
9 April 2013
  • Summary: Its a decent overall router, But at 59.99 there are too many issues with the firmware.
  • Pros: I've been using this router since March (solid month). The set up was fairly easy and straightforward. The online interface is pretty easy to use. I'm coming from a buffalo router with ddwrt so I've gotten used to that, so it did take a few minutes to find all the options that I wanted to use. As...
  • Cons: The speeds that this router can push are less than impressive for me. On my buffalo router with ddwrt I was easily pushing 30-35mbps consistently throughout the day and night. On this D-Link i'm lucky if I get 20mbps during the day. I've also been having to reset the router constantly. The speed ...

Newegg EggXpert Review

ALBERT K., Newegg
8 April 2013
  • Summary: I went ahead & turned WIFI off on my iPhone & tried logging in to the dlink Lite app. When I went back to the app after going to 3G it took a few seconds longer to log in but it did work.
  • Pros: *CONTINUOUS REVIEW FROM PROS TO CONS TO OTHER THOUGHTS* Unpackaging The router comes in a standard box w/ the router antenna cables power cord approximately 3’ Ethernet cable. The router is enclosed in a plastic bag w/ a red label advising of the importance of securing wifi networks from unauthor...
  • Cons: Next to all the connected devices I mentioned theres an iPhone style switch that allows you to block the internet connection to that device despite it knowing the password to the wifi signal etc. To try it I blocked both laptop connections & tried to use the internet w/ the ethernet cable connect...

Overall not a bad router for those starting out in Networking

Bernardo R., Newegg
20 March 2013
  • Summary: In the end, it still is a nice router for those who don't do much over the internet. It offers great ways to monitor your network, but needs a bit of upgrading to make it perfect. Me being a gamer, I require a bit more in my dependability in my network.
  • Pros: This is a great router for those who are starting out setting up their first or second network. It offers a lot of utilities that help you keep your network safe and secure. Some of the neat features of this router are: -Has awesome range due to its big antenna. -Has an iOS/Android apps to help y...
  • Cons: This is a great router for those only using it for web surfing and video watching, but not that great for gaming and large file downloads. One thing when I received this product, I learned it already had a firmware update...luckily D-Link updated it for me, but for those buying new, I am sure you...

EggXpert Reviewing

Brian B., Newegg
16 March 2013
  • Summary: It's a nice router, all 6 of my devices would connect easily and all could run at the same time on the wireless, just could not get Xbox Live working. I went back to my Rosewill RNX-Easy N4, XBL is back online. I think I'm going to try and turn this D-Link into a repeater.
  • Pros: Great range, no drop in speeds, lots of different options for security and firewalls.
  • Cons: Could not get Xbox Live to connect! Severely frustrating! It would connect to the router, and connect to the internet but as soon as it tried XBL...it would fail every time! I tried numerous ways of trying to fix this, opening the specified ports, putting my Xbox in the DMZ, disabling the firewal...
