  • Summary: Seven months later, the wifi randomly just turns off every few days. Rebooting restarts it, but who wants a router this flaky?

The router disabled his automatic qos as soon as it detects a faster upload than 2mb/s witch is bad since this's router MAIN feature s its...
  • Pros: Nice Form factor Sd reader speedy wireless and wired

Not for the faint of heart

Steven J. Burican, Amazon
17 March 2013
  • 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.

Worthless

Anonymous, Newegg
11 June 2012
  • Summary: i bought this as an upgrade for an earlier model D-Link 802.11g router (DI-624) that I've had for nearly a decade. I was hoping to increase the range of the network by moving to an n router. Since I was impressed with my old D-Link, I decided to stick with their brand. Wow, am I underwhelmed.
  • Pros: Easy setup Highly configurable Good throughput when you're in the same room as it Looks nice
  • Cons: Range (or extreme lack thereof)

Constant Reboot (Dir-827)

MADMAX "alvarr", Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: I received the first router and all I got was a constant reboot. I upgraded the firmware thinking probably need it. Nope, still the same issue. I figure must be the cable company for the constant lost of Internet service. They told me I had low signal to the cable modem coming from the splitter.
