Overall this router and the seller were both nightmares.
15 August 2013
Summary: I'm flat out calling this router a POS. The router is/was supposed to factory refurbished. I think not. The first router I got you could not ping it, connect to it in any way shape or form. Didn't matter what PC I used, what OS I tried. I was forced by the seller to call D-link so I could get a case number so I could get a replacement.
Summary: I needed three things out of my new router 1 DD-wrt compatible 2 External antennas i could upgrade 3 USB port for shared storage This router fit the bill for my needs and was a great price i loaded dd-wrt on it and it was very easy only took a few minutes. I was able to get more than a 10 percent signal increase from the 2nd floor of my home with the router on the first floor.
Summary: I needed an 8 port wireless router to handle my hardwired equipment as well as my smartphones and tablets. The D-Link DIR 632 appears to be just what I was looking for. Having used other manufacturers equipment without being satisfied I converted over to D-Link routers and I have had less problems and more satisfaction. It is not too complicated to set up, it is reliable and provides the functionality that I need to keep my network running.
Summary: The unit was listed as a refurb. It already had a username and password assigned to it. While the username was visible by my computer, no clue was given as to the password. Can't believe that part of the refurbishment did not include resetting the device to factory defaults. I had to call D-Link and go through the arduous process with them. A couple hours of my life that I won't get back.
Like all refurbished units, update them as soon as possible

Summary: I purchased a factory refurbished unit. The DIR-632 was easy to set up once I did a factory reset on the unit. Apparently it is not common practice to reset the unit to factory presets at the factory(?). The unit worked fine for about two weeks and then started dropping the internet connection at random. I have since updated the firmware and have had no issues to date and is working as it should.
