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
27 July 2011
  • 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.

1 problem developed

Richard L., Newegg
11 July 2011
  • Summary: After 6-7 months it began rebooting itself several times a day. At inconvenient times of course. It has the latest firmware and I never used a hard drive in it. I tried the tip in the knowledge base about turning off upnp but it didn't help.
  • Pros: All the features. Works great when it stays on.
  • Cons: Sending it in for warranty leaves you without a unit. Going to see if they'll ship a refurbished one but not holding my breath.

Acting up now

Richard L., Newegg
23 January 2011
  • Summary: Going to be contacting them about it. I would recommend a seperate NAS and a different router.
  • Pros: It has lots of nice features. I wanted the NAS just for backing up stuff and having it easily accessible on the network. Didn't carabout the screen but it is handy to see it when the unit decides to reboot regularly. Has latest firmware and never even put a HD in yet.
  • Cons: The price is a bit high. It has begun rebooting itself whenever it feels like it, regardless of use. Happens when streaming movies or just surfing.

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.

Good Router, Bad NAS

Josh L., Newegg
31 March 2010
  • Summary: all in all this is a great router, just wished the nas speed was a little faster but still good feature to have no matter how slow
  • Pros: Lots of features and network info on screen. Built in ftp is great. ability to transfer files to the router/ftp from windows is easy and care free
  • Cons: The Nas feature is not speedy at, in fact it is the slowest I have ever seen, it feels like an after thought.

Swiss Army Knife of Routers

Susan, 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.
