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 and most of my friends are apartment dwellers and the signal is decent in our apartments, but I cannot speak for a home.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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. 1) NOT at all compatible with DD-WRT (yes, I should have checked the database first) 2) Antennas are permanently attached, so I cannot hook up my parabolic dish, which is a prime reason I wanted this.

Mine was faulty

granfury77, Ebay

  • 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. I think it was a bad solder joint because one time it started working after I slammed it sharply down onto the table. Probably indicative of the quality control on the low end of the router market.

Good router, terrible customer service

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not a tech guru- just know if something works or not. The router functions very well. I'm using this in an adobe house with thick walls, in a climate with extreme weather. Neither construction nor weather help the wi-fi, yet this D-Link functions quite well. Signal carried through walls, to outside, into another structure- not strongly, but enough to use for limited-bandwidth applications.

Not loving it yet

  • Summary: This replaced my Cisco wireless n that got zapped by lightening. I am not a tech guy by any means, but the cisco was my first wifi router and I had it up and going in maybe 5 min. This d-link, well, spent an hour trying the step by step in instructions provided. No luck. Called their tech support and spent an hour on the phone before I could get properly configured and connected, but....the network name I entered would not show up...just "d-link".

No IPV6 !!!

habanero, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I just raised the rating from 1 to 3 because its been a trouble free device for 18 months even though I was really miffed when I first got it. The antenna is kind of flimsy and flops around now which is why I didn't give it a 4 but still works fine. I just received this and plugged it in and it seems to be working OK. But I was looking for an IPv6 capable router and contrary to the vendor marketing blurbs on Amazon, this device does NOT support ipv6.

  • Summary: We just installed cable/broadband internet and had to order a router since the supplied modem only has one lan connection. I had tested the speeds prior to switching from dsl to broadband, then with only the cable modem, and finally with this router and 3 pc's + a Wii. The jump in speed to broadband was outstanding, then we added this router.
