  • Summary: It's okay. We have to keep restarting the router every couple of days. Since we are in an apartment, it's only a room away, so it's not a big deal.

Finally got around to using it.

John M., Newegg

  • Summary: I got this router for free when I purchased a Motorola cable modem from Newegg. It sat in the unopened box for well over a year before I found a use for it. I put it in our son's bedroom so that he has his own wireless access point and enough ports to plug his stuff into.
  • Pros: Price was right (free) Does what I need it to do.
  • Cons: Older product, limited support from D-Link. Newest firmware is beta and it's from July of 2013.

Not satisfied

Beth LC "Beth", Amazon

  • Summary: I used this router several months but had trouble with the wifi signal dropping and having to restart the router at times more than once a day. I didn't know if it was my internet connection or the router. I switched routers and haven't had to restart it yet.

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.

Mitchell A., Newegg

  • Summary: I purchased the router on a shell shocker deal for around 20, and for that price I got at least what I paid for. When the router arrived I had no issues at all, but now there have been a lot of letdowns and I am looking for a new router.
  • Pros: Wireless N Gigabit Speeds Sleek design Plenty of options, some beyond what I will need to use.
  • Cons: This router started out nicely, but now almost a year in, I am discovering a lot of issues, such as constantly having to reset in order to restore internet connectivity.
