Summary: I have Vonage as my home phone service and had difficulty setting up the router myself. However, I called D-Link and tech Henry was EXTREMELY patient and took me step by step on how to set up my modem, router, laptops, and Vonage phone.
Pros: Had it for 8 months now. Have only had to re-boot it twice. Very quick even with 3+ cell phones on Wi-Fi, two computers downloading (also via Wi-Fi), and streaming HD content on the Smart TV (Smart TV running on 5GHz, all others on 2.4GHz)
Cons: Gets really hot! I have a special table that hides the router between a hidden shelf under the top surface. The top of the table gets *hot* from the router, even though its a 1/2" piece of wood! This may cause issues in the long run...we'll see.
Summary: I bought this router for use with two xbox consoles on the same network. One wireless and the other wired. I also connect to the wireless with a two laptops, as well as two phones. My smart tv and computer connect via wires.
Summary: Im giving this thing 2 weeks b4 i decide to keep it or not. Because i bought the #1 rated router for a reason. It better live up to the hype
Pros: Good sysytem, works very fast, set up very easy
Cons: You have to figure a way to have it suspended in mid air or get a fan to it. The 1st day i had it set it up and had it siiting there the way it was advertised on the box "sitting flat on an upper shelf with nothing around it so it could breath. It got so hat that it turned off and i couldnt use i...
Summary: D-Link just put an updated Firm Ware (1.02) for this router today 2-29-12 which does NOT fix the QoS issue. Now, instead of the Advanced / QOS Engine page measured uplink speed saying "Not Estimated," it now says "Your broadband internet connection has surpassed the uplink measurement requirement.
Pros: USB 3.0, Ubicom processor for great QoS for juggling todays bandwidth hungry services like FTP servers, streaming TV through providers like Hulu or netflix, online gaming, etc.
Cons: Yeah, the QoS doesn't work if you have a upload connection over 2Mbps. I've followed Gitsum at smallnetbuilder.com and D-Links support forums with my own comments and questions about this issue.
Summary: With a name like "amplifi" in the product description, you would think this thing would have a much better range than it does. Most reviews of the router point to a weak firmware which I hope D-Link addresses since this really is the best dual band router for the money.
Pros: USB 3.0 enabled, Share Port for USB devices on network, Upnp server, this is a solid networking device.
Cons: Needs a firmware update for better range. 5 Ghz is generally not as long range as 2.4 and that is true for this device for sure.
Summary: pretty good router. i m no techie but a fan of electronics and want my stuff to be decent and best. this is my fair and best advice for amazon buyers. the good: 1)dual band 2) USB 3.0( my selling point, more and more people have a 3.0 drive now) 3) range decent not excellent 4)sleek look 5)...
