Summary: This is a review of the D-link DIR 601 wireless router. This router is probably fine for surfing the web, however, it periodically drops ssh connections. I am using ssh secure shell on a windows machine to log into remote linux servers. This program has no capacity to send keep alive pulses across the wireless link. After a short period (~15 minutes), the wireless router will time-out the tcp ip connection and drop the ssh connection.
Summary: I am a Mac user and could not use the disk that came with the wireless router (minus 1 star). Got it up and running in about 15 min. Did look over the PDF file on the disk. Has been running for 60 minutes without any problems. However, the Wireless Network is WPA, not WPA2. It also has WEP. Overall, for the price, it seems to be a good wireless router and it replaces my Belkin router. Virtual servers are available and will set up next.
Summary: I never write reviews, but was so impressed by the bang for your buck with this little router, and its ease of set-up, that I decided I would for this product. First off, I'm a mac user, so I was totally prepared for this to be a nightmare for me to set up on my parents' PC. Seriously, I don't know the first thing about PCs, but thought I'd give it a try since I needed a wireless network so I could use my ipad when visiting, and the router was so cheap.
Summary: I was just moving out of my DSL to Cable to get better bandwidth, I was looking for a new wireless router and found DLink DIR-601 with mostly positive reviews and decided to go with it. Used the CD came with the box and the setup was complete within 10 minutes and I was able to move away from my old linksys router to this one.
Summary: I gave the D-Link DIR-601 router a 4-star rating based the three most important attributes: Price, ease of setup and performance. It was only $20 at the time I purchased it, which seems less than the cost of the materials to make it(!). Since this was my first experience with a router in my home, I did a fair amount of research and found a lot of not-so-good reviews on many more-to-MUCH-more-expensive routers.
Summary: Reviews. from people like me don't really help you consumers much, as I am a tech freak, so I come on here, already knowing what I want to buy, all I will say is that, if you are looking for a wireless router that has great strength over a moderate distance, then the D-Link N150 is for you. It works for just browsing, and gaming alike. I have yet to lose a connection with the massive use I have going on with it.
Summary: Unfortunately, this router suffers from intermittent lapses in broadcast. I have not had a problem with the hard wired desktop attached to it but the wireless cuts out when using my laptop and Roku player. Both are stationary and all are in the same room as the router. Online and phone support were great but could not fix the problem. Went with a N300 Belkin for ten dollars more and have had no issues. You get what you pay for sometimes.
Summary: I have used many bargain & a few name brands of wireless equipment over the years. I bought this D-Link because it is almost as inexpensive as the bargain brands, some of which worked, some of which didn't & all of which lacked helpful software and instructions. I'm using 2 of these DIR-601's a Wireless Access Points. No interference with each other (BTW, 2.4 GHz portable phones interfere with all wireless network devices, so we switched to Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones).
