Worked great... For one day.

Kimberly C., Newegg
28 February 2014
  • Pros: Worked great for the first day I had it. Shareport worked well (for the time I had to test it). QoS seemed decent.
  • Cons: Manually set up the unit (as per most routers). Came home the next day and the wireless stopped working. I figured a simple power cycle would fix it. Power cycled the unit using the front power button (power off - 10 sec - power on). Only power LED came on after that, and have not had any other lights since. After this, my ISP recognized a new MAC address, my PC's MAC address. Seems like the unit is forwarding all information from my computer instead of acting like a ...

Awesome router

Ericson M., Newegg
18 January 2014
  • Pros: Pretty long range, It works for a long time. I've had this on for over a year until I had to unplug it for upgrading network. It litterally said 300+ days in up-time.
  • Cons: In the "outskirts" it sometimes seems to get low speeds and/or disconnect. Maybe it gets confused by obstructions and bouncing that is caused by chance interferance making it "smartbeam" to the wrong place. Then I turn on another device, in the same area and then it re-finds the disconnected device. But I guess this is better than it not working at all.

User Review

  • Pros: Less expensive after instant rebate
  • Cons: Keeps Disconnecting very frequently, causing lot of frustration. Replaced my old Cisco router for the same reason. Now I feel the Cisco router was functioning better than this router.

Pretty good, after some work

John C., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Summary: But, on the 3rd day, I had a wild hair and decided to update the firmware. It didn't auto update, kept saying I was current at 1.01 but after going to the D-Link website, there were several revisions after that.
  • Pros: Good range. Can't say it'd be "whole home" for most, but it still gives excellent coverage across the house, and even towards the end of my backyard, but gets spotty there.
  • Cons: Only nitpick I had about this product was its initial status on the first 2 days. Constant disconnects from WiFi. No matter what device used, internet connection would just drop and I'd have to software reset the laptop/tablet/Roku just to get it going again. After large data transfer or ~30 mins, it'd just drop any device, pretty much guaranteed or your money back. I was debating between a return or RMA, but didn't want to put up with the hassle.

Does what I needed it to do

Moongirl, Staples
10 October 2013
  • Excerpt: My old router wore out and would disconnect me repeatedly. This D-Link Router was a nice mid-priced solution for my house and home office. So far it's worked well, has a quick connection and hasn't blinked yet. I haven't strayed too far from the router with any device yet, so I'm not sure how it's overall range will be.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Reliable connection, Secure Connection

Worked fine for 1 month

Leonard H., Newegg
16 May 2013
  • Pros: Good wireless range while it worked
  • Cons: After 1 month, wireless disconnects sometimes multiple times per day. Had this problem with initial purchase. Replaced via RMA and replacement had exhibited exactly same problem (fine for 1 month, then continuous disconnects).

Very nice unit for the money, and improved range over standard antenna type

seanzilla_bassman, Ebay
22 April 2013
  • Summary: Almost seamless set-up, right out of the box. Software allows user to unplug old router, and set up new unit, simultaneously; with little time or interruption. Standard features of most routers with WEP and WPS security. Pros: Easy to set up. Takes up less space than traditional antenna-array routers. Soft glowing indicator lights. Sends a more "focused" signal to WiFi based units, and with a much longer range than D-Link's predecessors. Sleek black design.

Great router

David S., Newegg
10 February 2013

  • Cons: Has dropped in price since I purchased it.

D-Link DIR-645 1000 Whole Home Router

MisterTickle, REVIEW STREAM
27 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I upgraded my wireless G router to a 300 MBps wireless N router by D-Link. I chose this one mainly because I think that the antenna is straight up rather than angled. The design looks very nice. It isn’t the usual box shape with two or three antennas sticking out. This one is different with the antennas on the inside. I usually don’t like the ones where the antennas are inside because it usually means weaker signals.
