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.
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...
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
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.
Summary: Ordered these refurbished D-Link wireless routers which I've used in the past. Buying refurbished is really a good money saving way to enjoy technology and save a few dollars. I've purchased refurbished DIR-601 routers before and they were factory certified refurbished.
