Summary: Got this for my daughter's apartment, needed a high bandwidth WiFi router for school and play. easy set up (daughter did it her self) her and room mate both use Apple laptops, iPhone and Android cell.
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. I am so disappointed and frustrated. I wouldn't recommend D-Link Dir-857 Dualband HD 900 Mbps 4-Port Gigabit Wireless N Router(DIR-857)to anybody in good conscience.
Summary: Had to replace my relatively new (one year old) Cisco (Linksys) router after it kept losing the connection and having to do a hard boot on the router every day. Decided to upgrade to the 900 dual band router to compete for bandwidth with my gamer son! I've been quite satisfied on it's performance thus far. Not locks, lag time, buffering, etc. when I watch Netflix through my wireless Blu-ray on TV. It is an outstanding router, and I will never use all of it's features.
Great router for the money I couldn&apos;t beat it.

Summary: I bought this router to replace my older dlink dir-655. What I like about this router is that it has a much further reach than my older dlink and the added band allows for faster video processing when watching Netflix and Hulu. No more interruptions just smooth streaming. How this one compares to others out there... It ranks amongst the top 5 routers currently to include the newer AC1750's that are out now.
Don't like this router, going to get rid of it and go back to Linksys

Summary: Hard to set up, keeps dropping the signal on the 2.4 ghz band. Have to reboot the router to get it working again. This happens several times a week. Tech support was not able to cure the problem. Read a review on Cnet that recommended it but it has not lived up to their recommendation.
Summary: Paid $100 with free shipping for a manufacturer refurbished unit. For home use this router is excellent. Range is superior, antenna power dialed down to low and still have wi-fi from the street curb. Hardware and software are easy to install. Only two drawbacks - the WPS function is hard to configure, actually easier doing the traditional manual syncing and lastly there are a lot of features to this router and you will have to read the manual to navigate through the...
Summary: We are a very heavy internet using family. 3 XBOXes, Netflix streaming, plus our smartphones, regular internet browsing and Ooma Telo VOIP. I also have a wireless N print server (Zonet ZPW4000)that's very finicky about the router it connects...
Excerpt: пользуюсь пока всего день, пересел на него с Zyxel Keenetic Giga II у которого все было хорошо. Субъективно DIR-857 заметно резвее открывает странички (провайдер МТС). Обновил прошивку на 1.03 - как висла web-морда, так и виснет. С прошивками конечно беда. Светодиоды приходиться накрывать листом бумаги, иначе комната ночью озаряется голубыми всполохами светодиодов) Скорее всего снова перескочу на Zyxel Keenetic Giga II.
