Not even six months later and jabber jabber jabber <connection lost>!

alexander750, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: I haven't had this beast very long, and already I have problems. Out of the box Gigabit worked fine with wired connections, but Wi-Fi was spotty at best. A firmware update was available that helped the wireless somewhat, but... Jabber jabber jabber jabber jabber jabber.

Fine For The Money

plainandtall, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • 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.

Better hope you're in a cooler climate than San Francisco.

Chaz Anthony, Amazon

  • Summary: The router worked fine for the first few weeks. At some point, I started noticing severe lag when transferring files to and from my Network Attached Storage. I originally thought it was because I had my NAS plugged into my cable modem/gateway directly, which I've had problems with in the past (hence...

WAN port isn't gigabit

Damian Harouff, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Despite being labelled a "gigabit router", the port where you connect your modem isn't gigabit. I have 150mbit service at my house, so I would have been losing 1/3 of my speed if I had kept this router.

Lost 5 GHz band after few months

Daigo I., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Probably my last D-link router unless CS steps in and set things right. I emailed the support but havent received reply so we will see....
  • Pros: Everything was working fine but after about 1/2 year of use the router lost 5 GHz band. Similar to another reviewer's experience here, I can only get weak signal if I am with in like 1-3 feet from the router. Reset the router, updated firmware, changed channel, played with settings, but no go. Th...
  • Cons: This appears to be common issue with these DIR routers from D-link. People are upgrading firmware, playing with setting, only to find out that the hardware gets faulty after few month of use.

Great when it worked!

Russell D., Newegg
8 September 2013
  • Pros: Great Range (When it worked) Easy to setup Dual Band 5Ghz
  • Cons: After about 5 months, it suddenly drops all 5Ghz communications, I reboot the device, and still cant find a signal, only when I bring my laptop, phone, and tablets within 3 feet of the device do I get a weak signal. Factory resetting the device didn't help. I emailed a detailed explanation to DLI...

Pray you don't need tech support

P. Roos, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this router and it worked great for about a month. Then one day, it started having problems: my Xbox360 wouldn't stream videos or download games (and it's wired to the gigabit port instead of wireless). The 5GHz band would hang and not load pages.
