Summary: I purchased this product for the dual band, and for the USB 3 port. After months of changing settings, the 2.4GHz band is finally no longer kicking my older devices offline every 20 minutes. When they say "Shareport technology", what D-Link means is that you will have to download their Shareport software if you want to be able to access the USB drive from anything but a full PC.
Summary: When it works it works great, but don't count on it being consistent. Tolerated it for about 9 months, will be calling in under warranty, but from what I see from other reviews it is par for the course. Loses connection and you either wait or have to reset it. Have the latest firmware, doesn't help.
Don't buy even if cheap! Unstable even after firmware upgrade.

Summary: OK, I'll admit it, I bought this router because it was cheap. I found it for about half price as an Amazon Warehouse Deal. I only read the first few reviews and certainly didn't do enough research since the problems I ultimately experienced were shared by many others. Router setup was relatively easy, especially since I had been using another D-Link wireless router for several years. The problems began when I attempted to add the kids' iPod Touch devices to the network.
Summary: This D-link never worked properly over the months that I had it. I used tech support on two occasions; wasting hours on the phone. Also spent hours with my son who is a computer geek and has an IT Bachelors Degree and still it would not connect on most occasions. Poor product.
