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: Truly a remarkable product, no lag whatsoever and instant connectivity. Blazing speeds and amazing coverage, no more dead spots in my house. However, when I first installed the router, my old 2005 Windows XP laptop could not connect to the router. After the firmware update, it connected instantaneously! WARNING: MUST DOWNLOAD FIRMWARE UPDATE FROM dlink.com! Instructions are also posted on website under the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
Summary: Upgraded from DIR 655, tried Amped Wireless High Power Wireless-N 600mW Smart Repeater and Range Extender (SR10000) but it kept on getting disconnected. Returned the Repeater and went in with the DIR-857. It has been working superbly for multiple laptops, multiple tablets, Apple TV and three PS3. Cannot go wrong with this product, also it is IPV6 ready.
Summary: I've got nothing but good things to say about this router. I upgraded from an WNDR3700 that I have had for the past 3-4 years, and this was a welcome upgrade. Setup was easy, and I get constant speeds in the 20Mbs-23Mbs range, which is much better than I was getting with my Netgear. I'm a little surprised the wifi range isn't a little better though. I've never gotten close to losing the signal, but when I move around my 2200sq.ft.
