Summary: I did my research by reading the reviews both negative and positive. I sifted through them all and I STILL bought the thing. I couldn't be happier. After reading the installation notes and removing the data label for safe keeping, I just plugged it in and turned it on and entered the address from the data label, set the network preferences and it was done. Two to three minutes hookup time.
Summary: I needed a solid router after my other one would randomly drop connections with devices. I liked the design and features this router had to offer. It has overall been a solid router. I have yet to have a disconnect from any device using it. I cannot get the speed my ISP is allotting me but the stability is nice.
Summary: The range on this device is horrible! On a wired connection I get around 150 Mbps. Standing directly in front of it on WiFi I get around 52 Mbps. One room away I goes down to 30 Mbps. Two rooms away it looses signal regularly but when it does connect its around 10 Mbps. I have a rather small house and when I bought this router I was excited about the 600 Mbps but over the last few months I have realized what a waste of money this device is!
Works Great, if you don't smash it while setting it up!

Summary: When it comes to routers, I Always buy D-Link, especially as they are the only brand that has LAN IP address reservations, in most of their models. Once in operation and set-up, this models daily useage would qualify for 5 Stars: * No overheating, or too warm problems (constantly running for about 8 months now) * consistent gigbit wired network, that works well with a gigabit switch * dual band N network works very good, and I have not experienced any drop offs (that I...

Summary: The router arrived in good condition. I was unable to get it up and running, it is not "plug and pray". Calling the help desk was a challenge, with a string of selections to make and guess what, when you talk to a live person you are in the wrong dept. and get dropped and have to start again. Third try I got through to a service desk after refusing to give credit card number as it was a new purchase.
Summary: I replaced a refurbished Netgear WNDR3400 (DO NOT BUY THIS ROUTER) with this D-Link. There was some improvement, but the customer reported even better WiFi performance from an Apple Airport Extreme.
Summary: I had been looking for a new router after buying a Smart television. It would make it about 20 minutes into programing, then say I had no internet connection. I was hoping 600 Mbps would be enough. It was not. As long as you don't need to stream HD video on the other side of a large home, you should be fine. Easy set up and such.
Summary: Complete waste of money. Hooked up side by side with my cisco router. Dlink broadcasted 12mbps. Cisco 79.3mbps. Not even close. Also drops signal every 25 min like clockwork! Keep the router you have and just open up ports for "cloud" access. This is a huge POS!
Summary: I bought this because I trusted that Amazon would not be handling it if problematical. It then never worked without connectivity issues. I did what I could to troubleshoot it, but gave up in June and contacted tech support, only to reach someone who spoke fractured English and mostly could not be understood. All he offered was to change wireless channels and upgrade the firmware from 1.02 to 1.04.
