Great for the price but...

L. Anderson "Classic Computer Fan", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: Great router for the price but last one I installed had connection issues - ultimately had to reload or update the firmware (not sure what version was on it) Dont hook in the internet, just to a computer use a paperclip to reset and get to the firmware update screen, upload the firmware you downloaded and unzipped from the support page and let it do its thing... after that it was blue skies... Wasn’t expecting that but was able to roll with it.

Excelent router for students

Imelda, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this router for me and my 3 roommates on housing at the college since we were tired of not having internet. The Shipping was really fast (because of the 2 day trial of Amazon Prime), The installation was kinda hard (because we got confuse in one of the steps) but once we finished installation, the router worked like a charm! it has great signal around the apartment, and it is fast! excellent for its price too!

Drops Connections all the time

M. S. Anderson, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I have been wrestling with this DIR-601 for about 6 months now. I have moved it all over the house to try to improve signal strength and yet I still get multiple drops on a daily basis. We have 3 computers and a squeezebox all running off of it and unless we are in the same room it seems to hang and drop connection. The squeezebox seems to be better now that I have given it a big buffer.

Works great but not with stock firmware

Ashwin Kamath, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I had a lot of issues with dropped wireless internet connection. The wired internet used to work great. I was almost on verge of buying a new router when I noticed the dd-wrt firmware available for this router. Now, there is no looking back. Router works great. I just completed a 5 hour maintenance window for work using my laptop over wifi on VPN and not a single time did the VPN connection drop. So, a great router but with dd-wrt software and not the stock firmware.

Difficult to set up.

  • Summary: Setup is difficult, why because after trying to setup for many, many times as instructed I could not get device to work at all and tech support could not find a solution either.
