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.
Excerpt: The D-Link DIR-601 is a great enry level Wireless Router and provides all features one may wish from a hoe home-ofice network router. It supports 4 Lan ports in adition to the Wireless N connectivity and has a in built firewall. the admin interface for configuring the routher is easy an i like the wizard based approach for configuring Wireless security (WPA or WEP), keys and the lot.
Excerpt: I'm not a techie, and actually am quite the simpleton when it comes to technology and networking. So this review is for others like myself! This router was actually recommended to us because it would provide what we needed -- no gaming. We actually got this for a really good price too. it is rather simple to set up, since I was able to do it myself without additional help.
