Summary: I've been very impressed with this router. I pay for 25mb/s download and for some reason this router gives me 28mb/s wireless speed on a consistent basis! Every room in my house gets at least 20+mb/s which is amazing. I had a brief issue when my router stopped connecting to the internet. I called tech support and in less then 20 minutes we were back online again! I must've had a power surge that wiped out the mac address from the router.
Summary: Plaster and lath is just horrible for wireless and I had three routers previously that still had dead zones in important spots. I wasn't holding my breath that this would work but it does the trick, by itself...
Summary: My old router was causing drops in the internet, was looking for a new one and for a camera where I could monitor the house, D-Link had both and the camera links up with no problem and the router solved the internet drops, couldn't be happier with the purchase.
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
Seems to work OK BUT...must be reboot after power-on

Summary: The setup wizard isn't as easy as some of the other brands but it was OK. I have setup various routers before. The user interface is not as clear as most but it is complete. The reason I knocked off a star (I was generous) was because it will default to an IP address of 192.168.0.1 This is normally reserved as an address for a Microsoft server. That would have been OK but the computers I was setting up were running Win 7 (I can't speak for other OS's).
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.
Summary: I got this for streaming video from Netflix in our back bedroom. Works well with a 4 bar signal no waiting for it to buffer. I have a three bar signal in the garage which is a separate from the main house. Use with all my wireless devices laptops, kindles and directv devices. Also was very easy to setup.
Summary: Revised review, now the sucker works & has been working w/o fail for 6-9 months. Like the round shape as it doesn't fall over easily. Purchased to replace the older (& very reliable) Dir-655 which was moved to another location. From the start the Dir-645 has been extremely troublesome and simply refuses to connect. The 1st Dir-645 I rma'd back to D-link. The 2nd (replacement one) had the same problems. Was unable to get it to work.
Very fast home networking for HD contents sharing - with a glitch

Summary: I use AT&T U Verse and the Residential Gateway did not provide sufficient wireless speed for HD contents for multiple computers/devices - I have about 9 devices in household including iphones, kindles, macbooks, gaming pc, media pc, and a printer. Many times I got frustrated that HD streaming to multiple devices would stutter. Also copying large files among computers wirelessly would take longer than necessary.
