Cons: Interface. I just don't get it. When you set up your security settings, you can put in your pre shared key. BUT, the key is always blacked out with asterisks. You cannot change this. So, lets say you decide to use WEP encryption. You will put in the top key, blind, and then the system will genera...
Summary: My parents used a Belkin router for a couple of years. It kept dropping their internet connection so they purchased another one. It gave them similar problems. Then I installed this router (flashed with DD-WRT) and I haven't gotten a phone call about "computer problems" (internet) in months!
Pros: This is a sturdy little router. Got it for free with a modem purchase and I haven't been disappointed. Its compatible to flash with DD-WRT which was a huge plus for me.
okay when it was $20, I guess it's a bit more popular now

Summary: Had this router for a few years, it worked well for about a year and then started to degrade in quality. It would stutter every 15-20 seconds, spike to 1000 ms ping - very noticeable in games. I installed DD-WRT firmware and this solved the problem.
Pros: Works well with DD-WRT
Cons: Stock firmware is quite terrible. Started dropping signal (wired), even with DD-WRT after 2 years
Pros: Great router, very easy set up. Few to no issues. I feel like if I ever had issues, they were through my internet service provider. I've called D-Link customer service a few times, and they've always been quick to help solve my problem, whether it be a router reset, or directing me back to my ISP...
Cons: None I can really think of. I've had problems with my internet connection, but could never deduce whether it was my ISP or my router; either way, they've always been solved with a quick phone call.
Cons: Very bad signal ranging. I can only get a good and fast enough signal within the same room or without any blocking wall. So, it is not good for a house, which makes this a piece of junk. I have to buy a better ranging router.
Summary: Wireless router work satisfactory, additionally the 4 eports provide easy access for units that do not carry wireless capability. Previously own one and know that this brand is easy to set up and install
