D-Link unresponsive to security vulnerabilities

Colby, Amazon
18 March 2015
  • Summary: Router worked pretty well for us up until I found out that there were remotely exploitable bugs found in D-Link's firmware. D-Link refused to acknowledge said bugs for months until details of the vulnerability were released publicly (see "D-Link and TRENDnet 'ncc2' service - multiple...

Horrible range and output speed!

Nate, Amazon
8 August 2014
  • 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.

The router arrived in good condition. I was unable to get it up ...

Lewis Coulson, Amazon
5 July 2014
  • 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.

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. 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...

JUNK AFTER 1 WEEK

Glen Beach "Glencho", Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Didnt believe the other reviews and went and got one. Seemed great on initial install, nice strong signal etc. 1 week later, cant get a consistent strong enough signal to see the 5 ghz upstairs in the bedroom, but basically DIRECTLY OVER THE ROUTER.

Piece of junk

Heriberto H., Newegg
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Buy the cheap stuff, most of the time are better.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: work for about 3 weeks, then it locked itself, could not get it to work, loaded new firmware 104, and nothing, did a reset, connected by Ethernet but not wireless had to dig out an old Linksy that never failed, got this because of the gigabit and never worked.

Firmware version?

Master S., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: LOL; I just wait for next gen. AC then grab one not with D-link as well; thank you to offer, but I've to pass it. GL
  • Pros: um... read my previous review...
  • Cons: my previous review got manufacture responded and asked me to update to "the latest firmware (1.03)" My router came with 1.04, do I have to "down grade" it to make it works? I can see that whoever responded to my post may not really know the product issue as well.
