Decent Device

Sergey K., Newegg
17 March 2015
  • Pros: I would say this device performs fairly well but doesnt quite deserve 5 stars. Its fairly simple for a regular user to setup etc... Range also seems good and travels pretty far through floors and walls in a 3 story apartment. Decent administration options for a device in this price range.
  • Cons: None for the price.

Streams movies good.

Randy P., Newegg
21 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought it a long time ago from here on a fire sale. Never used it, bought it for the price. Is working so well I've left it in-place. Seems to stream the HD movies better. I'l like to buy a better one but now-a-days you don't know what you'll get no matter how much you spend.
  • Pros: Streams movies from my plex server better that my $200 1inkxxs router. A little less range but not bad.
  • Cons: Had to apply the "beta" firmware for it to be stable.

Now that the firmware has been updated.

SHERMAN H WATTERS, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Initially it was requiring rebooting at least once per day. We called in D-Link support, they walked us through the download/update, and as of this morning, no more rebooting it. Pretty sure we'll be keeping it.

Not Bad for $20

Jeremy M., Newegg
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I only use the wifi for my moblie devices. Havent gamed or streamed hd over wifi. But for what i use it for, hard wired gigabit gaming and mobile wifi. Havent had any problems. this maybe better as a AP for most. I dont know the longivity of the router. Only time will tell. But at $20 free shipping.
  • Pros: Gigabit wired for $20...and free shipping. Has worked fine so far... upgraded firmware.Run 3 andriods and 2 iphones off wifi with no dropped signal. Have my gaming computer hard gigbit wired. Fast shipping for me... I ordered on a fri and it was at my home mon night.
  • Cons: Poor signal strength. Not very far range. Most changes to settings require a reboot. Which is annoying. Says it's open source, but isn't.
