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. 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.

Terrible

  • Summary: D-link makes a terrible router. Don't connect more than a couple devices or it will perform poorly. I would buy anything but this router again.

The worst D-link router I have ever had!!

Judy L., Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: I have used D-Link routers exclusively for at least 15-20 years. The last two that I had were the DGL-4300 and the DGL-4500. With both of these, they almost never had to be restarted and worked flawlessly. Since I had the DGL-4500 for over 5 years, I had been told that they eventually wear out, so I decided to get the latest and greatest HD router from D-Link assuming that it would work as previous router had. I am so sorry that I did.

Ouch

Mark Czerniewski "Mark5575 Orlando", Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: What a pain in the a... This first order came and just from the start router did not work. 2.4Ghz antenna did not sand signal. Called D-Link tech support, talk to Indus tech support, got my RMA to get new router, receive new router and you would think that's over? Wrong! When I open a so call "new replacement", the replacement was all damage, scratches everywhere, simply refurbished.

WARNING - Do not buy this product

MM (Cary, NC), Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: I am going to do my best to be short and sweet: -- I used to have a DIR-655. It served me well for years until it died. It happens. By the time an AP dies on me, I'm fine with the excuse to upgrade. That router sold me on D-Link. -- I bought the DIR-857 September 2012. After about a month, I noticed that although 2.4 was broadcasting, I could not always connect to it. So, I would connect to 5.0. Fine with me and did not think anything of it.

Dlink needs work in their customer service department

Elizabeth T. Whitney "Lizard", Amazon
6 November 2012
  • Summary: Bought this router because of the good reviews. It worked great for about a year then it suddenly dropped one hard wired line out of the three. I spent a great deal of time trying to fix the computer that had the dropped line since none of the other two had a problem. After two calls to tech and about three hours, customer service condemned my ISP's modem. I have had problems with other Dlink products in the past so this will be my last.

Don't like this router, going to get rid of it and go back to Linksys

deegee77476, Ebay
14 October 2012
  • 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.

Durabilidade baixa

paulo cuellas, Bondfaro
7 April 2014
  • Summary: Comprei esse roteador para a empresa e no início foi bom. Acabei comprando para minha residência também. Após um ano de uso, ambos começaram a apresentar problemas de não passar adiante a velocidade de banda que chegava no cabo do modem. Coisa absurda, eu media a velocidade no cabo do modem antes do roteador e marcava 10Mb, quando eu conectava o cabo no roteador e media por ele, estava transmitindo wireless a menos de 0,5 Mb isso estando do lado do computador.
