Summary: I have always used d-link routers. My last router lasted me 3 years before i decided i wanted to upgrade. I bought this because it had everything i was looking for. Ive had it for a little over a year now and have been having issues for about 6 months now. Its wireless power has greatly dropped. It is very slow. If i have multiple items running at the same time it boggs down. I am considering getting something new that isnt d-link.
Summary: One of the best routers ever have!!! Es el segundo router DIR-645 que he comprado. El primero se dan~o por descargas electricas, pero nunca tuve problemas. El alcance y la velocidad del WI-FI es en toda la casa, inclusive en el exterior. El precio en eBay es el mejor, comparado con las tiendas de electronicos en los centros comerciales.
Summary: Prior to acquiring the D-Link Whole-Home Router 1000, Wireless-N (DIR-645) I was using a D-Link Extreme-N Gigabit Wireless Router (DIR-655). For casual use, I have found that the DIR-645 compares favorably to the DIR-655. Both models have a large array of configuration settings that can be tweaked to optimize performance, but fully utilizing them requires more than a passing familiarity with computer networking and router functionality.
Summary: I wish I had the same experience with this router as other reviewers here have. It started out great. The setup seemed easy, and I was getting a signal, though a weak one, in areas that I had a hard time getting any signal in. Then, about a half-hour later, I was getting no connection at all. I re-booted the router, still nothing. I then re set up the router using the method I had used initially, but no joy. Finally, I called tech support.
Summary: I resell D-Link product, and I've watched the quality of their products slide over the years. Sadly. Because they used to be great, and now it's a race for the bottom. Having installed several of these, I've replaced just about all the ones we sold because I wasn't happy and neither were the clients. Firmware updates, re-jiggering settings...this unit is just terribly unreliable.
Summary: This is my review of the D-Link Whole Home Router 1000, Wireless N Router (DIR-645). I will be comparing it to my D-Link DIR-655, which currently serves as my primary wireless router, and which has been working well for over two years now. I consider the DIR-655 to be one of the best routers for wired or wireless networking. I was pleasantly surprised that the DIR-645 was on par with many features, better in some yet lacking in others.
Summary: Before getting this we used a DIR-655 and had constant issues with wireless dropping and speed slow downs. It had to be rebooted constantly. How to solve the problem? Get The DIR-645. This little cylinder can handle all our devices, has not needed to be rebooted once and we now get the full extent of our internet speed. A great thing is that it actually has a power button and a refresh button so no more unplugging and re-plugging cables. It is sleek and fits in well.
