Works great, awkard install

Gordon, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: The wireless speed is very good as well as the hard-wired connections. It has two wireless options the fastest option's range is very limited, but it lives up to my expectation. The installation is a bit convoluted if you select "replacing another router".

Very good product - but maybe not for the novice

J. B. Kraft (Died 8-8-2013) "Country-lawyer", Amazon

  • Summary: If your networking needs are modest -- gigabit backbone, and wifi to a few electronic appliances and computers, this is a great product. I pluged it in replacing a DIR-657, and it recognized everything immediately. Subjective network performance went up immediately.

Good range

  • Summary: This was to replace and old g unit, the new features are great and the range is much improved. I have a harddrive connected it and it works well. My only problem was a Western Digital media player could not see it as it did not allow me to enter the harddrive address but this was not the routers...

D-link router

Harold Frelix, Amazon

  • Summary: Very good router. I use it primarily for gaming but fairly consistently I have a laptop, 2 iPads, and multiple devices networked like blu-ray players and what not and the connection is always pretty good. Good investment.

Good wireless router - just make sure you have the latest firmware!

Richard C. Drew "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.", Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: There are other reviews here with some fantastic information and troubleshooting help - if you're having problems, read them (I did!) After updating the firmware this works flawlessly. Setup was easy. The DIR-857 was designed for anyone to use and install.

Great Router

Christopher, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: Great Router, loads of functions and easy to use. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is for 2 reasons. First if you don't keep the router in an area that has good air flow the unit will heat up and cause a need to reboot the unit on a regular basis.

  • Summary: so far this is the best router that I have owned in years. I especially like being able to use SD cards to store small data. The USB 3.0 is very fast and accommodates my NAS disk for network backup.
