"HD Fuel" or QoS not ready for prime time

Ryan, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: "HD Fuel" or QoS doesn't work with an internet upload connection speed above 2 Mbps. This has been confirmed by' D-Link engineers. Efforts are being made to get those responsible for writing new firmware to change this upload rate limit to 10-15 Mbps, or even to eliminate the speed limit altogether. I gave this router a 3 star rating that hinges on them coming through with new firmware that fixes this issue.

Strange problem with wireless

J Yeung, FutureShop
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I have used this router for 2 years. Set up was not difficult and both wired/wireless performance are good. I also like the Shareport utility, which allows me to use a USB drive as file server (serving 3 PCs). The printer sharing is far from being stable and I don't use it. Recently, whenever I turned the router off and on again, the wireless part will be disabled. I need to reboot the device to enable wireless. If I leave the router on always, this is not a problem.

Changed my mind eventually

Chris, FutureShop
7 November 2011
  • Summary: Finally 9 hours to get it reconfigured for 1 Xbox, 1 Vista laptop, 1 XP desktop, 3 ipods 1 Yamaha amp. Setup is not a breeze, and I know what I am doing. My other review is still partially valid. Once set up it is really nice router. But custom setups may put you over the edge. To get this finally working had to tweak almost half the "auto settings", do 2 firmware upgrades and reconfigure almost every piece of hardware that worked fine for 4 years.
