D-Link DIR-657 HD Media Router 1000

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: D-Link's DIR-657 HD Media Router 1000 is marketed as a router built for multimedia streaming, but lower-than-average throughput will disqualify it for high-definition streaming for many users.
  • Pros: Unique features such as IPV6 firewall and CAPTCHA login. USB printer and device sharing. Fairly easy setup.
  • Cons: Expensive. Mediocre throughput. Too few LEDs.

D-Link DIR-657 Review

  • Excerpt: D-Link markets this single-band (2.4GHz) router as particularly well suited for gaming and media streaming, and it is endowed with very good quality-of-service features, but QoS can’t magically render the 2.4GHz frequency band any less crowded. And given our relatively pristine test environment, the best word to describe the DIR-657’s range and TCP throughput is pathetic.
  • Pros: Ubicom QoS engine; DLNA certification; SD card slot; USB port.
  • Cons: 2.4GHz radio only; very slow TCP throughput; terrible range.
