Good customer service experience

LM, Amazon

  • 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.

Good Router

Liam B., Newegg
2 June 2014
  • 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.

It works fine. Lots of options.

  • Summary: If it lasts less than 5 years then I will be sorry I spent so much, but maybe it will last longer.
  • Pros: Works as advertised. lots of options.
  • Cons: Expensive. Not sure it really does much more than my $40 Linksys router that I replaced.

Not Impresses

Phillip L., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • 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...

lovin the dual so far

SEAN F., Newegg
5 March 2012
  • Pros: Lots of options, rock solid so far, numerous parental controls options, decent build and looks, decent web interface, auto setup worked well out of box when i actually followed their directions
  • Cons: not cheap, 5GHZ coverage seems a bit weaker than the 2. almost overwhelming possibilities for config if you are not a networking guru it can seem daunting at first. no wall mount options.

2nd for Needs firmware update

Ryan B., Newegg
29 February 2012
  • 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.

DIR-827, As good as it gets.

George D., Newegg
18 February 2012
  • 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.
