  • 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.

Price was right, but not worth the headache to reset it all the time.

  • Summary: OK so I was like WOW a $175 D-Link for $20!! Well there is a reason. I had mine for about a week, up and running, until I ran into weakend WiFi signal. Then for some odd reason the WiFi stopped connecting for any wireless device. A month after issues with the WiFi, after tweaking it with new firmware and deep setup techniques but still weakend signal, the ethernet ports gave out. Now, this I have never had happen. Troubleshoot did nothing.

  • Pros: Price ($19.99 when I purchased) and feature set; usb port, SD slot, media sharing.
  • Cons: Speed and range of signal are nowhere near N300 spec and are actually below that of my previous N150...

  • Excerpt: Po precitani recenzii som sa nakoniec rozhodol pre kupu tohto routeru. Zlakal ma najma USB port a pomerne nizka cena. Bohuzial ale musim povedat, ze som si vybral zle.
  • Pros: Pekny dizajn bez anten
  • Cons: USB port sa takmer neda vyuzit, potrebujete na to aplikaciu, ktora ale dost dobre nefunguje, napr. pripojim tlaciaren ale ta vytlaci asi len pol strany a potom napise chybu, Slabý dosah, vedla v izbe uz je signal slabý, router sa obcas sam restartuje, media server nepouzitelny, trvalo mi cca 3hodiny kym som router spojazdnil, nakoniec som zistil, ze to nefunguje preto, lebo prilozeny ethernetovy kabel bol nefunkcny, sietovy adapter vydáva nejaké bzucivé zvuky.

  • Excerpt: Záměr nákupu - nejlevnější IPv6 router - s tím jsem byl spokojený. Gigabit switch je jako bonus (a za tu cenu celkem dobrý). DLNA server je velmi pomalý, ale pro někoho bez vyhrazeného serveru pro sdílení asi dostačující. Sdílený USB port se musí použít přes aplikaci SharePort - opruz, ale je to použitelné. Wifi je VELMI nepoužitelná - slabý signál, pouze SINGLE BAND 2.4 GHz (mají špatný popisek ve specifikacích).
  • Pros: nativní IPv6 router, zabudovaný IPv6 firewall, gigabit switch
  • Cons: IPv6 router sice funguje, ale moc věcí nejde nastavit pořádně, v podstatě pouze SLAAC (u stateful DHCPv6 nelze přiřadit MAC/DUID k IP), lesklý porvrch, který jednou otřete kapesníkem a hned je poškrábaný, VELMI slabý dosah wifi (antény jsou integrované), druhý kanál WIFI se kvůli interferenci nikdy nesepne -> max rychlost 150Mbps (no museli byste žít na vesnici či co)
