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 am not a professional, but, i am pretty good with tech, not networking. Anyhow, set-up was very simply, I mainly purchased because i upgraded my cable internet to a higher speed and wanted something that would support the speed upgrade, and it has, just by installing this router, my throughput doubled/tripled in some instances.
Excellent router - but beware...attached USB drive is no NAS!

Summary: This router is excellent in terms of range and functionality. Setup was easy enough to enable me to connect to my ISP and I was able to use the router to effect DHCP reservations on my network, as well as to set up port forwarding to enable access to devices over the Internet. The range is excellent and I was able to see this router from parts of my house, previously impossible with the D-Link DIR-615 that this router replaced.
Summary: After doing tons of research because I didn't know anything about routers before I settled on this one. I needed a simple router for a small apartment and settled on this one, seeing as later on I would get one of the more powerful AC routers. I'm currently using my phone, and PS3 and PS4 and have no issues at all. Sometimes when I go to other rooms the signal isn't as strong and slows down a bit. Overall if you need a simple wireless router I would recommend this one.
A Great Little Wireless N Gigabit Router for the Price

Summary: This router has worked well so far. I replaced a cheaper Belkin router that was having to be rebooted once a week and really wanted USB connectivity with Gigabit ports without spending $200.00. This has really fit the bill. I didn't really need the 5 GHz as most of my devices don't recognize it, but streaming Netflix to my HDTV or Video to my phone it has been great.
