"This wireless router has been our worst nightmare."

BonkersTheClown, CNET
19 June 2013
  • 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!

1hulagirl1, Ebay
9 June 2013
  • 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.

BUYER BEWARE

Martin J., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Pros: Aesthetically, it looks pleasing. That's about it. Although it has many features, you won't possibly be able to make use of it because of the numerous disconnection you'll encounter.
  • Cons: I have never done any product reviews, and never intended to, but I felt compelled to warn would be buyers of this lousy product. As others have mentioned in their reviews, this is a very unreliable product. The first week was like a honeymoon stage, where everything seemed fine. After that, sudden D/Cs became an incessant habit of this. Also, this thing does poorly in streaming HD quality videos. My Airlink Super54g did (and does, as I went back to it) a superior job...

Don't waste your money on this faulty product

Zeshan, FutureShop
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought this product a month ago. This is not a suitable router for any sane person. Had to reset the router every 1-3 days. Dlink helped with some troubleshoot and told me my router was faulty. Won't make the same mistake again. Avoid this router at all costs.

D-Link DIR-657 Wireless-N HD Media Router

notebooksbilliger.de
16 November 2013
  • Summary: Der Router ist absolut billig. Die Geschwindigkeit im Wlan-n (150Mbit/s) bereich ist schlechter als mein alter Wlan-g (54Mbit/s) Router. Angeschlossener Drucker meldet fehler, wenn ich in an den Router anschließe und drucken möchte. Das geht übrigens nur über die mitgelieferte Software von D-Link. Nur Anschließen und drucken geht nicht. Und das waren auch schon alle Punke, die dieser Router für mich erfüllen sollte... Es aber nicht tut.
