With a few modifications, it can be an amazing router for the price.

  • Summary: I got this router for a steal at $20.00 but, it does have it share of issues. The WiFi would be visible, but wireless devices were unable to connect until the router was restarted. This happened about 4 times a day. I was able to fix this by installing firmware 1.2 beta form D-Link's website. This router doesn't support DD-WRT. Another issue was that the router had a pretty short range. My garage was a dead zone.

  • Summary: Great value, runs well, does an awesome job. I would recommend it to everyone who wants faster, more readily available access to multiple devices and looking for speed. Same equipment at Best Buy or Office Depot over $100. Great savings at less than half the cost.

"This wireless router has been our worst nightmare."

  • Pros: Well ... it is a wireless router. When it's working it does do what wireless routers are supposed to do I guess ...
  • Cons: This thing drops connectivity to everything many times on any given day. That is the only consistent thing about it.

Does not get Netflix!

  • Summary: I purchased D-Link because the box said "lets you watch Netflix and Vudu" because of HD Fuel Technology blah blah. Very misleading because the company and my cable company said not so. So......I have a 'tried to hook up D-Link' back in the box wondering what it's good for. I replaced a blu-ray wih a smart blu-ray for 5X as much which accomplished the Netlix thing. I also purchased a high-end wireless router for the wireless capabilities.

Works great, no hiccups yet. Using for wired and wireless.

  • Summary: Offered this on a buy of the day. Good price. Didn't realize it was wireless at first (should have read more carefully) but is fast and dependable. Setup was not easy, but not impossible. Could do better second time around. For some reason will not connect to the i-phone. ON reading it may be a phone issue and I may have to reinstall the wireless. Overall, fast, handles several computers and wi-fi blu-ray.

Major disappointment. Will not buy D-Link again.

  • Summary: Out of the box, this item had difficulty setting up. After a call to support it was up wired but there were problems with wireless. 2 additional days of support, updating firmware, changing settings, etc. support told me that the item will not send wireless signal through interference. Their definition of interference is sheetrock, glass, air, etc.
