Wished the actual picture was larger

Sincerely Yours, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: Bulky for what it is worth and the actual picture window is really small. Easy to load up pictures and to use, but there are better functioning products out there for the money!

Nice little NAS box, Good for general Internet and Some gaming

e38Bimmer, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this to try it out. Disappointed that DHCP and QoS didn't get enough Development and QA. Reserving IP addresses causes the router and device not to work. IP addresses reserved ON the router fails to appear correct on the clients. This causes the router and DHCP services to stop working.

Where to begin...

Xev, Amazon

  • Summary: I will start by saying that if you have a setup hitch, D-link's tech support is about as bad as they come. The Level 1 techs do not know anything. They are completely useless and shouldn't be employed by anyone ever.

Drops connections, mediocre NAS performance

Adam Moreno, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: Brought home the DLINK DIR-685 last night. At first all seemed to go well. Initial configuration was a breeze. Was able to quickly connect several PCs, NAS & VOIP devices. Right away I noticed that two wireless PCs were dropping their connections intermittently.

Lacks DSL modem functionality!

Sanjiv Jain "Sanjiv", Amazon
29 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this product hoping to replace my current ADSL modem/router by one device that also adds USB network devices, and a Network storage. But due to my ignorance, I realise that this does not replace the DSL modem! Pity, I still have to keep two devices ON all the time.

Swiss Army Knife of Routers

Susan "minniesm", Amazon
18 August 2009
  • Summary: Unfortunately, not all of the blades are working. I think this is because I had to use this router as an access point. I have an AT&T 2wire modem/router, so this was the only option I had.

Not "plug & play"

J. Green, Amazon
7 August 2009
  • Summary: This is a pretty cool router - not only wireless connectivity but also with a hard drive (which is *not* included, please note!) that can be shared for storage and USB ports for sharing other devices. It also has the picture frame feature which is kind of a nice (if a bit odd) addition.

Excellent router - easy setup - great features

TheTerrorBeyond, Amazon
22 July 2009
  • Summary: EDITED 07/23/09: After using the router all day, I have noticed that the wireless connection speed to my laptop is not consistent like the router I was using prior to this one. The speed constantly changes and has gone from 54mbs to 11mbs repeatedly. The previous router did not do that.

  • Excerpt: Пустая трата денег, лучше купить модель дешевле, а если хочется фоторамку или сетевое хранилище, или принт-сервер - купите отдельно! Это устройство даже танцы с бубнами не позволили настроить по-человечески.
  • Pros: Большая дальность приема-передачи по сети Гигабитные порты WAN Красивый корпус, очень стильно выглядит В режиме роутера работает крайне стабильно, ничуть не хуже старого D-link,хотя иногда SAMSUNG Galaxy S2 и Айфон, чаще самсунг, отваливаются от Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: 1. Отходит разъем питания. Убогий выключатель девайс на проводе питания, как на советских лампах. 2. Ничего кроме роутера нормально не работает. вставил хард, 3 часа танцев с бубнами, никакого нормального хранилища не вышло (руки прямые), приентер пытался подключить 3 дня подряд. Плюнул) 3. Нереа...
