Frequently drops ssh connection

  • Summary: This is a review of the D-link DIR 601 wireless router. This router is probably fine for surfing the web, however, it periodically drops ssh connections. I am using ssh secure shell on a windows machine to log into remote linux servers. This program has no capacity to send keep alive pulses across the wireless link. After a short period (~15 minutes), the wireless router will time-out the tcp ip connection and drop the ssh connection.

What the?!

  • 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. And my last attempt is re-install the firmware and it comes back life. I almost lost my mind of what could have happened. But at least it is back to normal now. But it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Extremely unreliable

  • Summary: Every two or three days it seems to not be able to talk to my cable modem any more and the only way to get it up and working again is to factory reset it and set it up again. I've looked around and it seems I'm not the only one with this issue.

An awesome deal may not be a deal after all.

  • Summary: The router worked well for about a month. Then, as I moved the unit in my office, the antenna fell off. It looked as if it had been broken off and just stuck back in its slot. I have since had to purchase a new one, with a full 2 year warranty.

User Review

  • Summary: Bought this product a few days ago. It provided 100 Mb/s on direct connect, but only 56 Mb/s for laptop with wireless connection and only 11 Mb/s for a desktop with PCI card. I could not install it by myself, needed to call DLINK help desk. Then I tried to printer sharing. (Printer was attached to my desktop), but could not access from other computers. Tried to fix it for 2 days, called DLINK help desk.
