not bad

Mark "Flyfisher", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: router works great...I am basically just using this as a wired router, I don't use the screen or the network drive. The routers performance isn't bad...I'm getting 94 Mb/s out of the 100 Mb/s bandwidth that I've subscribed for. There are newer routers on the market now with much better performance ([...] But if you are getting under 100 Mb/s service...this one isn't bad !

  • Summary: It works. It's easy to set up. The menu could be more intuitive. I had one at my previous home and was satisfied enough to buy another. I've never used the photo feature.

Great box

C. Remes, Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: Solid little box that delivers tremendous performance in a very tiny and cheap package. I have this unit connected to a 60Mb metro-ethernet circuit (gigabit hand-off from the carrier). During testing when the carrier had rate limits disabled I was able to push this box to download at a rate of 500Mb and upload at 400Mb (using the default 1500 byte MTU). On LAN-to-LAN transfers it also performs extremely well.

Bells and Whistles Galore

B. Braithwaite "B", Amazon
18 November 2009
  • Summary: The DIR-685 is numerous products in one compact router. I like the router's capabilities, ease of setup and configuration as well as it's range and speed. It uses all the latest innovations to allow it to compete against the best routers on the market. The compartment for a hard drive and the USB ports allowed me to set up my printer without having to use an additional wireless print server and now I have additional storage within the unit.

A Unique Product

Raven Wilder, Amazon
18 November 2009
  • Summary: Where to begin? This product is just so many things at once, that it's hard to be sure what parts are most important in a review! Perhaps the best thing to do is to first consider the D-Link DIR685 as a wireless router? Or perhaps as a NAS? Maybe as a digital photo frame? Or should I discuss the FrameChannel features? OK, first, as a router this is top-notch once you get it going.

The 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. It has been about three weeks since the rep at D-Link told me that the team who developed this router would contact me and see if we could resolve some of the issues. As of yet I have not heard from them. If I do, I will update this review.

At the right price this is a good solid router with some advanced features.

jamesm28us, Ebay
16 February 2012
  • Summary: Reasonably good router - range matches netgear DGN2200. Only has 2.4 ghz band. Easy to set up, however Wireless security is not enabled as the default setting. Good user interface with plenty of advanced features. Screen is a bit of a gimmick, used it for the first day and then that was it. Internal HDD is a great feature, however the fan can be noisy when it runs (which isn't that often)Access speeds are slow but that is to be expected as it is not a dedicated NAS.

User Review

globendi, Yandex

  • Excerpt: Отличный роутер, не для рядового пользователя. Если нужно с работы включить домашний компьютер или скинуть на фтп файл, поставить на закачку торрент, и т.п. идеальный агрегат. Однако, морально устарел. Современные скорости уже не держит, а менять не на что, так как сменив на более производительный роутер, придется отказаться от ряда полезных (по моему мнению) функций.
  • Pros: Очень симпатичный. Поддерживает большое количество ценных функций:1)NAS (FTP) сервер, 2)WOL (большинство домашних роутеров запрещают рассылку широковещательных пакетов), 3) расшаривает 2 USB порта, пусть хоть и через утилиту (отлично подошел для сетевого сканера), 4) все типичные для российских роутеров «плющки»: DDNS, VPN through VPN, L2TP. 5) Всегда-точные-комнатные-часы!
  • Cons: 1) Внешних антенн нет - сигнал слабоват, 2) хоть я ими и так никогда не пользовался, но сервисы экрана больше не работают.3) традиционная беда Длинков - потолок восходящей скорости в 20 мегабит.
