  • Summary: I wanted to use the router as a range extender with an external antenna but the antenna isn't removable. It works so I can't rate it to badly. Should have done more research.

Worked fine but...

John from Richmond "J", Amazon

  • Summary: ...my unit was missing the installation CD that would have made network installation easier. The price was outstanding and the unit performs flawlessly. I would only recommend for users who are experienced with setting up home networks without the installation CD.

Thought refurbished meant like new

s.frisby, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this router to replace a wireless modem from my cable company. I was tired of paying an extra $10 a month to "rent it." This router works just like it's supposed to. That's about the only good thing.

Ok for general use but not good for VPN

P.Review, Amazon

  • Summary: I have this item for about 4 months now. This is a good router if you use it for home i.e., browse, watch videos and so on. But if you want to connect to work using VPN, this is not a router for you. There is some unknown issue with the router that causes the VPN to gets disconnected.

Poor availability of information

Andy, Amazon
14 May 2012
  • Summary: Bought this, since I had a good experience with D-Link in the past, but the main drawback with D-Link as a company is the lack of available product information. I was buying this for a home in Asia and I wanted to know if the voltage rating on the adapter is global or US specific.

Does what it says

Me, Amazon

  • Summary: Not a top of the range router but it does the job it was created for efficiently and consistently. Great price too! But...I'm pretty sure the router I got was either refurbished or re-used as it has slight signs of scratches and use (I know when something has been used/refurbished as I fix laptops...

Works great for the price.

Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: I had this router for six weeks and so far it has been working good. It did not work right out of the box though. I bought this router knowing it was refurbished. I spent about 45 min on the phone with D-Link Tech Support trouble shooting problems.

  • Summary: definitely not the best of the router, i keep losing my wifi connection frequently, i also have 1 computer which is connected via the LAN cable, which never loses connection, so i am pretty sure the loss of wifi is due to this router....when connected, the speed is good..

great, after the horrible setup.

Tyler, Amazon
3 June 2011
  • Summary: I tried 5-8 times to use the user-friendly setup system by logging into the router and going through the wizard. After the wizard was done I could see the wireless network but could never connect to it. Though I'm no expert, I have successfully set up wireless routers several times before.
