Summary: I wanted a wired router for my house because of the lack of wireless radiation. So I bought this DSR250, and right out of the box, I just plugged the modem output into it, and hooked up the computers too, turned it on, and it worked.
Summary: With any router the absolutely first thing to do is update the firmware. The latest for this router has a nice GUI but is way different from normal D-Link GUIs. If you know what you are doing this router rocks.
Pros: 960 Mbps WAN throughput True VPN Router that works well with Win 7 IKE v2 VPN Client Can handle many users at once Good price for "commercial" router - Luxul XBR-2300 is $270 online and isn't anywhere close to this one.
Cons: Except for basic set up, it requires knowledge to set it up. Not sure this is a con since it is commercial and not consumer. SSL VPN not so good. D-Link is working on it. PPTP and L2TP work very well if you set them up right.
Summary: I had great hopes for this router. The specs and features looked great. The GUI interface was relatively easy to master and configure. Even the VPN worked first time. I began to notice some strange interruptions with some web services.
Summary: Very good router for home use, it can sustain the high session rates of bittorrent clients, but it has some flaws with firmware 2.01 - If you set dhcp ip reservations you break the LAN page. You must configure LAN by CLI.
Great for small business with small existing Ethernet network
2 May 2015
Summary: Working as advertised. Small compact WiFi Router. Great for small business with small existing Ethernet network. Allows to expand network to locations that are not physically feasible for ethernet via Wifi.
Pros: Used to work for SSL. Works perfectly as a router.
Cons: The SSL Portal does not work with IE11 and Win 7. Does not work with the most up to date Firefox either. Says so in the most up to date Release Notes (1.09B32). Just chatted with tech support - there are no plans to update it, so it is now useless.
