Now that the firmware has been updated.

SHERMAN H WATTERS, Amazon

  • 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.

One of the Best D-Link Routers I’ve ever had...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: There are many bad reviews for this product and I'm not sure why. The only things I can think of is firmware, configuration errors, or using it behind a 2Wire/U-verse type of Modem/router and loosing traffic thru multiple NAT and Multicast packet loss because of not configuring both to work together.

D-Link Systems Gigabit SDIO 802.11n HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657)

Onarum, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: I've decided to pack this thing and send it back to Amazon after having it up for less than a day. I was just tired of the constant rebooting, and it even disconnects at one point while on the phone with Dlink support which terminates the conversation because my VoIP runs through the router. I went back to my old DIR-655 router which works great except for VoIP latency issues That I have been experiencing...

Works well enough

Ke Xu, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, I think a lot of people who give negative reviews are novices, don't have the patience and don't really understand how routers is suppose to work. I don't claim to be an expert but I certainly have the patience and the desire to figure out why it's not working like it's suppose to. Price: Because of the all the negative reviews and maybe some instability, they really dropped the price. I paid around $20 for it. Can't beat that. 5 Stars.

  • Summary: Day one was to forget, I spent 3h trying to set it up to work and nothing, day two was almost the same, but had wireless internet connection stable, wired not so much... Not until day three came, when I managed to make it work at almost it's full potential. My opinion, now that's set to work is that wireless connection is good in short range, but put some walls blocking the signal and you'll lose connection for good.

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

notebooksbilliger.de
16 September 2013
  • Summary: Von den Möglichkeiten des Gerätes bin ich begeistert. Ich nutze es, um zwei Laptops mit dem Internet, einem gemeinsamen Drucker und einer gemeinsamen Festplatte zu verbinden. Alles problemlos. Die Beschreibung könnte für Nutzer, die überhaupt zum ersten Mal einen Router einrichten noch optimiert werden, aber nach gut einer Stunde lief auch so alles.
