Think twice before purchasing a refurbished item from this seller.

Summary: This was a horrible purchase that ended up being a return. I've purchased refurbished electronics before and never had an issue. This item was missing the power supply and still had the return sticker on it saying why it was originally returned.
Summary: The router was purchased by as a refurbished unit. It would light-up but it was basically dead. I tried to follow the directions from the CD provided. Checked online with D-Link nothing there. Tried to ping the 192.168.1.1 and EVERY other possiable IP in between...Dead!
Summary: I normally do not write reviews but feel I should say this.. I received this router which had a broken antenna on arrival.. It isnt refurbished.. It's USED! It still had the previous owners info saved to it so I was unable to access it at first..
Summary: What a piece of junk! Couldn't get it to work and by the time I finally got a good number for D-Link customer service and actually got a agent on line the thing went completely DEAD!!! A lot of wasted time and now I have to go through the trouble of returning this turd to Amazon.
Summary: I can not configure the router. The login webpage keep telling me your password is wrong. This is very stupid as the instruction asks the user to leave the password blank. I tried to do this many times. I think they give me the old one that have already been configured.

However one I bought in January is a different model (DIR-601 B1) with an entirely different platform (AR9330 chipset), and all I can...
