Just Don't

Jon W., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: A generic TRENDNET N150 that I bought at the same time at 1/4 the cost has proven more stable than this one has.
  • Pros: I got it on sale. That's about it.
  • Cons: This router is a glorified paper weight. It is purported as being an HD Media streaming router but struggles to maintain any wifi connectivity for a sustained period of time. It usually drops hard-wired connections too and has to be rebooted several times a day. When it does work, the speed is OK...

  • Pros: ahhhh???

Blake Q., Newegg
24 August 2014
  • Pros: Theoretically good specs.....
  • Cons: This thing just doesn't work. after a day or so existing devices that could connect wirelessly will not be able to, looks like the IP address doesn't get assigned correctly. Spent multiple hours on the phone with Dlink tech support, finally got them to RMA a new one (after I had to follow up afte...

A potato coud route better than this

Brice J., Newegg
28 May 2014
  • Summary: I could have bought a 4$ potato at the grocery store that emits a stronger signal than this sh|t. furthermore, you can't load a jpeg without the thing dropping you.
  • Pros: It was on sale? makes great firewood. That's a pro I guess
  • Cons: -constantly drops signals -does NOT stream media faster -firmware upgrade does NOT help. -tech support did not help whatsoever.

ABSOLUTE GARBAGE

Martin S., Newegg
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Please, save yourself the headache and time and stay away from this defective product. If I had known about it being this problematic, I would not have accepted it even if it was FREE.
  • Pros: It's not edible. You wouldn't want to each trash anyways.
  • Cons: Wireless drops every few hours, requires a router reboot to temporarily get a connection again. I can go on and on about all the things I've tried, but that won't matter.

Extremely poor performance!

A. Funamori, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: Very limited range, less than 20 ft! Within 5ft the router works great, 15ft it is very slow, 25ft I cannot pickup a signal with a Kindle or laptop. I made four calls to D-Link technical support, the last call was escalated.
