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.
Pros: Streaming video like Netflix seems to work well and I can still use two additional computers at the same time, most of the time, but of course they are slow.
Cons: Streaming video works well through wired connection while using one computer on the 5ghz channel and one on the 2.5ghz channel. Then the low frequency channel just drops out and I have to reboot the router to get it connected. Happens often.
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...
NAT Loopback with DDNS and Inbound Filters not supported like before!

Summary: The Router is great except for one major feature that I have come to love in D-Link routers -- NAT Loopback with DDNS and Inbound Filters. Theoretically, everyone should care about this and here's why. DDNS is a feature supported in the router, which enables you to create a hostname to access your IP address. For instance, you can have [...] go directly to your home's IP address.
Summary: I think the range and speed of this router are more than acceptable, but setup was not as easy as expected. It took some research on the internet, and a couple of phone calls to get it operational. Now that the router is up and running, I like it very much. The router has features like port forwarding, Quality of Service, and Web filtering. It also comes with some impressive D-Link's features, like SharePort Plus, and OpenDNS parental controls.
Summary: After plugging into my network that includes some tablets and three Mac I had no problems at all getting it to go. The speed seems fast enough to give me HD Streaming on Netflix and Amazon on my PS3. It was easy to go in and change the password to more of a personal one you can share with the family so they can get all their connections going. It's a nice slick design that don't really stick out while I have to place it it in the living room.
Summary: Nice unit, and nice performance so far. I initially had some wireless issues, and had to do some tweaking here and there, but have not had any dropped signals since. I have the unit placed on the 2nd floor directly connected to a desktop, and the speed is blazing. Hard wired Netflix in the bedroom next door, is excellent, 2 wireless laptops down the hall, and wireless internet radio in the bedroom, all great.
