Summary: Pro: Works just fine Cons: Setup was a little tougher than expected. The instruction manual could have been a bit more helpful. Was really lacking in instructions for the "average" consumer and they would most likely need more assistance to get this setup.
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
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

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.
Excerpt: I find that the fan on the router is very small and is not efficient enough to clear away the heat. My suggestion is probably just to turn on the router when you are using it. I have an automatic timer that turns the router off at night and back on in the morning when I get up. This way, the router has a whole night to cool down to be used the next day. If I don’t do this, I’m afraid of possible problems.
Pros: Signal goes where other routers haven't. I like the guest network feature so visitors can go online but not get on my home network.
Cons: Only worked for 8 months. No internet. The radio still works, I can connect to the router but it does not connect to the internet. The internet light is out. It was treated well, it was not dropped or even used for shocking content. The d-link site does not seem to have a link for warranty claims.
Cons: The range which is touted on the site is less than the prior dlink I replaced. The connection also is flakey. I think even on the wired side there are problems but of course they are intermittent so you don't know if it is the router or something else. But I do know I didn't have connection problems with the dlink 614+ that I used prior.
