It is a wireless router

MasterCard, Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Pros: It is a free decent router that I hope I never need to use. Ie, it is a backup for the regular router. When Cisco routers work they for the most part work exceptionally other than random disconnects. Cisco Linksys routers are supposed to be really good from what I hear.
  • Cons: I have had issues with Cisco routers in the past. They seem to only last 2 years. There customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. Darn things disconnect randomly for no reason. The next time my router dies I will use this router long enough to get a different brand.

Bad egg

Anonymous, Newegg
17 January 2014
  • Pros: Easy to install
  • Cons: Loses connectivity, both wired and wireless. One day, I have the full Mbs, the next day, it's 50% lower or cutting out based on speedtest.net. Lowering speed is bad, but cutting out and losing connectivity (again, both wireless AND wired, is) is unacceptable. I purchased another D-Link wireless r...

User Review

Jack L., Newegg
26 April 2013
  • Summary: The reason that I gave this item 2 eggs instead of one is because when it is working, it is very quick. First initial setup was simple and it was up and running in less then 1 min. I currently have 2 Wifi routers on the same network.
  • Pros: Fast and easy to set up
  • Cons: Wifi cuts out every week which requires a hard reboot of the router

What the?!

C.Ho "hohoho", Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: After about an year of running without problem. All the sudden, it won't connect anything no matter if I restart or disconnect power or even factory reset. It just won't come back. So at the end, I spent half a day on it, I almost gave up and just buy a new router.

budget router, budget performance

Jesse C., Newegg
23 November 2012
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Great for those who do not have high bandwidth needs.
  • Cons: Very inconsistent download speeds and horrendous upload speeds with this router and it is no faster than a G router. If you play games, download, stream etc, I would not recommend this router. Okay for a small apartment.

Decent Features but Lacks Interface

Joshua S., Newegg
13 October 2012
  • Summary: Overall, I think this part could be improved by Dlink (see cons). I appreciate the cheaper price but I paid $29.99 for this router plus shipping. This just goes to show that Dlink is currently under the current competition.
  • Pros: The router was a very nice addition to my current living place. It transmitted will through thicker walls and was able to keep 5 bars of WI-FI throughout my dorm. It passed out IP addresses very quickly which is a plus for today's very quick attention span of users. I really enjoyed being able to...
  • Cons: The router failed in under 2 weeks of use. Yes, I understand that things happen. However, that is not the only reason that I gave the router only 2 eggs. The web interface is very clunky, especially during setup. I really dislike the fact that the initial setup doesn't allow me to set up the rout...

Mediocre

Anonymous, Newegg
6 September 2012
  • Summary: If you want purely a cheap router because its cheap, then get this. It'll do what you need it to but probably annoy you. If I were you, I'd spend a little more and get yourself something that won't be bothersome.
  • Pros: Was easy to setup. Pop in CD, follow prompts, there ya go. Really cheap, was on sale. Smallish unit, doesn't take up a lot of room.
  • Cons: Okay, I actually reviewed this once at 3 stars when I only had it for a a few days. Now I've had it for awhile so: You will need to restart your router every so often. If you need a steady connection (lets say gaming) it won't handle it on the wireless. You'll need to hardwire via ethernet. Even ...
