Its an ok router.

Ryan R., Newegg
21 March 2015
  • Pros: It was cheap when I bought it. It was selling for 179.99. Not sure why its not considered an over 289.00 dollar router. I dont get it. Why did this thing jump over 100.00 in price? It is a fairly fast router Ill give it that. Design isnt too bad either. Dlink setup is its usual easy to handle aff...
  • Cons: expensive. There are much better options out there for the money. It runs HOT. I added a retired pc case fan that I spliced into a former AC adaptor outlet plug.

Giving Up

14 January 2015
  • Summary: This is an update to my August review. This situation is irritating because I still have a D-Link AP and a pair of switches in my configuration. I tried to stick with this since I am an OCD techie and a cheap skate but I can't spend 30 minutes every two days resetting a router, fiddling with...
  • Pros: This ran excellently for a few months...
  • Cons: I am finally giving up. This was D-Link's top router for a while but it is too much of a headache. Besides the inability to connect to Apple products, now the 2.4 Ghz band is becoming erratic with laptops as well as the phones and iPads. I must constantly (every two days or so) disconnect and rec...

Difficult to install properly.

1thecountrygirl, Ebay
21 August 2014
  • Summary: I always bought a D-Link router since needing one because it always worked well and it was easy to install BUT I won't ever again purchase another D-Link. First of all my last D-Link router lasted less than 6 months. It was great while it lasted. I have tried 3 days to get this one to work.
