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 have had this router for 9 months without complaint. After the ninth month it stopped working so I called the help line and Carlos (agent# AR00429) was able to walk me through the steps to get the router back up and running. I am not clear why it stopped working but it now works again and it is as fast as ever!
Summary: This has been the best router I have had to date. I have gone through several brands including D-Link before this one and they all have lasted a short while. I kept having to reset them. This one I set up one time and have not had to mess with it since. Great wireless reception, excellent band width. Would highly recommend.
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.
Summary: Couldn't get 3 phones, 2 dish hoppers, 3 joeys, a desktop, 2 laptops, 1 tablet, and 1 kindel to consistantly stay connected with my old D-link router. This set up quickly and everything works perfrectly now., with strong signals. What else can I say.
Summary: I purchased this router to replase a DIR-601. My old router worked wonderfully; however, the range was not as great after I moved office location. I have always had a great user experience with D-Link products; therefore, I chose this router over the new Netgear R6300 even though the later has the new 802.11ac draft technology. I am not a fan of Netgear after having one that always dropped the signal.
Summary: I have had extensive use of this product for over a month and I am impressed! It was sticky initially configuring the device. I ended up having to update the firmware on the router before I could get anywhere with configuring the device to work. After that I have no complaints. You can configure this router using your android phone! The app is called QRS Mobile and it works great! I highly recommend this product as it has doubled my internet speed online!
Summary: It's easy to get lost reading reviews of routers these days. For every positive review you read on a router, there are just as many passionately negative reviews for that same router. Eventually you just have to pick one and hope for the best. I narrowed my choices down to this router and the comparable Linksys EA4500 N900 which a friend of mine reported great results with. The DIR-857 won out because it has a USB 3.0 port where the EA4500 does not.
