Summary: This unit is performing well and has good range and the two bands makes it a steal for the money. It does not work well with Vista, (only allows WEP). Set up instructions are ok for the basic functions but the more advanced set up takes some work. Also the My Dlink set up is not easy. I have had to use tech support to make it work and I am an above average user.
Summary: Got this to replace old router that does not power on anymore. Easy setup and DIR-826L has been up and running without dropping a signal in over 2 weeks. No plan to use for DLink App at this time. All & all, this is a good buy.
Summary: Setting up the DIR-826L was fairly easy and simple. It took only 5 minutes to setup this router. After that, it is pretty much plug and play, any devices can now be connected wired or wirelessly. It is dual band router which supports both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz bands. The 2.4 GHz wirelessly connects to five devices in my home and gives me full bars everywhere. Streaming HD without buffering over 5 GHz band is now a breeze with this router.
Summary: Range not as good as advertised but better than what I had which was an 6 yr old G d-link router. I do like the feature of being notified when someone is on the network and know what websites my kids are visiting. I know when someone is trying to access my network and has been stopped. The booster doesn't seem to extend the range in my house any better then before though. But have no problems accessing my wireless network actually works better than my old one.
Summary: Just you average user, with just enough knowledge to be dangerous. I found it very easy to set up, though it was annoying that it wouldn't take my custom key/password, but only seemed to work with the default/generated onme. This was no big deal.
