Complete junk.

meadowsdad, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • 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!

Never worked without issues and effective support

Amazon Customer "Tablet Enthusiast", Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because I trusted that Amazon would not be handling it if problematical. It then never worked without connectivity issues.

11 Months of Network Issues before things got so bad I called tech support

CMT, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I have had the DIR-826L for 11 months. There is only one month to go on the warranty. This DIR-826L would periodically drop the network connection and I would reset it. The drops have continued to get more frequent such that I had to reset it almost daily.

Buy A Different Brand, Major Setup Problems

P. Daniel, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: On time delivery, came in good condition. Now the bad, If you try to use it as an access point forget it, when you change the routers IP and turn off the DHCP server the primary router does not see it nor can you address it with a direct NIC connection from your computer.

Buyer Beware - D-Link does not honor warranty

Eric L Barth, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Worked fine for the first few months, then, like other reviewers, the router started lagging; video started stuttering; downloads started pausing on both wired and wireless connections. Then it started becoming completely unresponsive - only coming to life after hard resets to factory settings.

Lewis Coulson, Amazon

  • 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.

Does not support XBOX

JohnFromElginIL, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I paired this with a Motorola Surfboard eXtreme Cable Modem for use with Comcast ISP at 30mbps in Elgin IL. The cable modem seems to work just fine. I have my primary PC connected to the router via Ethernet cable. We also have another PC and a laptop (all 3 Windows 7) connected wirelessly.

Wifi disconnects constantly

Joel, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: As others have stated, the wifi continually disconnects and reconnects. I also get several errors in the syslog. Do yourself a favor and visit their forums, as many other people are experiencing this issue. I was using my old Linksys router and it was completely reliable..
