Don't like this router, going to get rid of it and go back to Linksys
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.
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: For the price of this unit I cannot possibly recommend that you buy it. I got this unit and the installation was very quick and easy. I had no trouble with that part whatsoever. After setting everything up in my multi-computer home (several laptops and a desktop), everyone's internet worked just fine at first. In fact, I was shocked at how quick my internet was moving compared to my old router, and very pleased.
Unstable Data Rates Not able to compete against WRT54G

Summary: Did benchmark testing at 30 locations in my home (same channel assignment at 2.4 GHz) 1) Ultimate range was reduced approx 30% 2) Even at 10 feet range couldn't provide the 20 Mbps provided by the WRT54G 3) At short ranges the connection would jump around stalling for a few seconds at a time 4) Turning on 5 GHz radio didn't improve performance (if anything more the performance was more eratic) Notes: A) no interference sources at my home B) Only using as a WAP (Router...
Summary: Thinking of plugging in your thumb drive or external harddrive to stream media (DLNA server)? Think again! Mine did work, marginally, for a while but has stopped now. When it did work, I had to reboot it everytime I added a file to the harddrive otherwise my DLNA clients would no be able to access the file.
Summary: Installed this router to replace a linksys. had issues with youtube videos and streaming content on any computer i had. returned it to the store and purchased a netgear model and no issue with streaming.
Summary: I was very disappointed with this. I bought this to upgrade to the dual band. Coverage is worse than my old router. I've had it for 3 months, and now it won't connect to the internet. Trying to get resolution through D-Link. I don't know why i keep trying D-Link. I am continually disappointed with their products.
Summary: You WILL need to upgrade the firmware on this router. However, it still gave only mediocre performance at best. After 5 weeks (just long enough where I couldn't return it to the store), I noticed I couldn't access some websites and throughput degraded substantially. My problems went away once I bypassed the router completely. I ended up buying the Netgear Wireless N Dual Band Router (WNDR4000-100PAS) to replace it. No wonder the D-Link N900 is on sale.
