Above My Expectations.

  • Summary: ** Updating to latest version cleared that up **
  • Pros: I would like to give this product a fair review. Explanation: I've had a lot of complications with different routers lately, which prompted me to give this router (DSR-500) a try. So far I'm very satisfied with the product. The through-put from WAN OR LAN is above acceptable. Also, I'm very pleased to find the rack mounting hardware (Standard 1U / 19") is included. Luckily you can configure and manage the device with out the need of a console cable. However the consol...
  • Cons: A) The original firmware contained options for all of the DSR devices. Including Wireless. Despite the DSR500 does not contain wireless hardware.

  • Summary: Came across this site while looking for help with this model. I’ve been an IT tech for almost 20 years and was not impressed the other day when I installed one of these for a customer who loves D-Link. LOTS of problem with SSL VPN, least of which was it only works with 64-bit IE. WTF D-Link?

Why Would You Think About Load Balance?

  • Pros: For the price, this is not too bad of a device.
  • Cons: No POE (IEEE802.af) but it does not cost that much.

Are you kidding me?

  • Pros: Uhh the UI is pretty thorough and straight forward to configure mostly. Some really nice add-on features around vpn etc... if you care. Documentation is pretty thorough.
  • Cons: Why have 2 WAN ports if you can't load balance across them, and the best you can do is failover, and that is wildly erratic? I just read the D-link site, and they claim that outbound load balancing will be available in a FUTURE feature. This is a major FAIL in my book. I only bought it to do outbound load balancing! BTW this thing is so HOT that I am buying an additional external fan!

Great Small Business Router

  • Summary: We needed to setup VPN and connect two remote offices. I can say only one thing, this device works like a horse and was a good replacement to our old D-Link.

D-Link DSR-500N

  • Conclusion: Взагалі девайс дуже хороший, при завантаженні домашнього сервера через цей роутер пройшло 1.5 терабайт інформації, і він навіть не нагрівся.
  • Pros: Працює без переривно 3 місяці, без єдиного збою.
  • Cons: Єдиним недостатком є те, що зразу після покупки його прийшлося перепрошивати на саму новішу версію прошивки, тому що стандартна була майже не працездатна, а так небачу ніяких недостатків.
