Summary: I will add some things to my review others have not stated. The ease of use of this router compared to my old linksys is really nice. I play a lot of video games and the port forwarding on this router is super easy. It has a large list of common applications that you can pick from where it knows what ports need to be opened. Then it gives you another list of devices on your network, so you don't have to find the specific ip-adress of the device in order to select it.
Summary: i do not usually write bad reviews on things but this item deserves it. This thing didn't work correctly from the start. the Disk that comes with it to help set it up Didn't work. i had to do it manually. which wasn't a problem for Me being an IT guy. so i got it working. about 30 mins later i noticed My aim kept getting booted offline every time i tried to send something. ok fine i switched to pidgin and it stopped. i assumed it was aim that was the problem.
Leverage open-source DD-WRT firmware and not D-Link one
10 September 2014
Summary: Updated March 29th 2012 - I have been working with D-Link development team and review an updated firmware that is supposed to eliminate a lot of the problems we see today, and mentioned below. I will update this review after testing. I have quite a few end-user devices in my house (nearing 25 at last count) and some of them require Ethernet connectivity.
Summary: I'll start by saying that I have several Windows 7 and several Mac PCs in the house. I had been using a Westell wireless modem/router provided by Frontier DSL (Formerly Verizon DSL in Washington State). The Westell was starting to have problems with one of my Macs (The IP Address kept dropping or some such thing) so I needed a new router.
Summary: What can one say about a piece of computer equipment? Unless one is a geek, not much. We want it cheap, to be reliable and to be easy to use. What can we say about the D-Link DIR-632 router? It is inexpensive (manufacturers hate the word cheap), it is reliable and mostly easy to use. We'll get to that mostly part in a moment. For an 8-port router, the price of the D-Link is very reasonable. That is a lot of ports for the price. Throw in N wireless and it is a bargain.
Disconnected a lot, but was able to work out with customer service

Summary: I got this router because it has 8 ports. It seems like a good router, but it disconnects a lot, like at least 2-3 a week I have to restart it. I very rarely have to restart it now. I called the D-Link customer service, and they walked me through step by step how to fix it. Took maybe half an hour tops, and now I only have to reset it like once every few months.
Summary: This router has worked flawlessly for me. I have several systems running all the time as I do "Folding at home" Which is a study of blood proteins for fighting breast cancer, mad cow, Alzheimers and many other diseases. When your computer is done with a packet it is shipped off to Stanford University. I have 5 systems hard wire and three running on wifi. It works flawlessly. Great Router!!
