Summary: I start college this fall and just ordered a MacBook Pro. I have never had home wi-fi and knew I would need it for my laptop and also for my iPhone. My dad was out of town when I recieved this router in the mail (which shipped in only 2 days!) So I had to install it by myself. I am computer savvy - but NOT tech savvy. However, I installed the entire thing by myself in about 10 minutes and it was unbelievably simple!
Summary: I've owned this router for about 10 days now. So, it works great. No issues except one. Good reception in all places in the house. I bought this, since my Linksys wireless router stopped working after about 5 years great usage. I had good reception in the garage with the Linksys router, so I cheked and it's the same with this D-Link router too. One problem is with my Microsoft Lync "soft" phone client. This needs to connect to my office network Lync server.
Summary: Bought this router for use in room set up for the Grandkids. They all have smart phones and tablets with Wifi. Great little router, works super in my home which is about 1200 sf single level. It doesn't come with any paperwork or quick start up disc but that is no problem. All you have to do is call Gearxs and they will email you the link to get the manual to download. There customer service is great to work with.
Summary: bought unit to watch netflix on 360 box to tv. unfortunatly when i turn on computer with wireless hooked up internet goes down. think it is because of slow speed thru att dsl. am going to upgrade, and try again. nice small unit. comes on right away. seems to work, just think is on my end.
Excerpt: We have had nothing but problems with this device since we got it. It will just lose signal or reboot itself whenever it wants. After numerous phone calls to dlink tech support (in which I was hung up on). i was also told they would call me back when going from one tier of tech support to another and never getting a call. They finally gave me a rma which I have to send the unit back so they can fix it and send it back to me.
If you need a home network, this is the one to buy, great price also

Summary: I bought this product to network my desktop and laptop. I needed a way to connect desktop (wired) and laptop(wifi wireless) to the internet at the same time without having to switch cat 5 cable all the time. I love that this router was way too easy to set up. I had it set up and running in less than 3 minutes. It was so easy I was like, wow is that it.
Excerpt: The low price, and the promise of reliability for the home attracted me.... this time I was wrong.....not a deal. I'm returning it and for approximately $10- $15 more, I'll have a product that runs circles around this. Cheap ? INDEED, in the worst way.
Summary: I bought the D-link to establish wireless internet connection in my house, after buying a laptop computer. This product was not just affordable, but also very convenient, as in addition to providing the wireless conection, it also has outlets for additional computers that require a ground connection, which enabled me to also connect my son's computer, the reception that we get with the D-link is excelent.
