Summary: I found the wireless capabilities of this router to be very weak. We are sometimes unable to get a useable wireless signal in our home just one floor below. I have ordered another router and hope its performance is better. Otherwise, the router was easy to set up.
Summary: Got it because it was the only 8 port router I could find with wireless. Saw the reviews and knew it had issues, but I needed those 8 ports. Removed the D-LINK firmware and flashed it with the DD-WRT firmware. Have it configured to reboot at 12:00am everyday and I haven't had any issues since I installed it in late December.
Summary: The DIR-632 wireless router is the best product of its kind, hands down, at this price point... IF you replace the firmware. Pro: 1) DD-WRT compatible with an EASY flash. No hacking, no hassles. 2) Eight (8) ethernet ports! I needed more than 4 and there is nothing else on the market at this price point 3) USB port for NAS / NETwork Printer! While other routers have this, I have NEVER been able to get the software loaded.
Summary: I purchased this router 35 days ago. Installation was easy, and it worked. Today, on the 35th day, it died, with no connection to Internet. I called D-Link Support, and stayed on hold on the phone listening to D-Link music for two and one half hours! Never did get an answer. Called back, wasted another 45 minutes with no support. Their support department is not only pitiful, it is non existent.
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.
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: This router is junk. I bought it because it had 8 ports and saved having to use a switch. The setup was easy/simple, life was great. Two months later it stopped working, I continually disconnect the power cord to allow in to reboot.....pain. There is no firmware or any other upgrade for this router; I reset factory settings, does not help. Today I have reinstalled my Linksys router and the switch.
Summary: Horrible horrible router! After using it for only 5 weeks the router needs to be reset almost every day...Huge waste of money. Its a great idea though having 8-ports and wireless but unfortunately it doesn't work.
Summary: I was really looking forward to getting this router, having waited a long time for someone to finally offer an 8-port wireless N router. I have a D-Link DIR-600, which has been very reliable for nearly two years. I hooked up this router and the wired connections began working immediately. I had to call tech support to get the wireless working. We have computers running Windows XP, Windows 7, and Mac OS 10.5 on our wireless network.
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.
