Works great but not with stock firmware

Ashwin Kamath, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a lot of issues with dropped wireless internet connection. The wired internet used to work great. I was almost on verge of buying a new router when I noticed the dd-wrt firmware available for this router. Now, there is no looking back. Router works great. I just completed a 5 hour maintenance window for work using my laptop over wifi on VPN and not a single time did the VPN connection drop. So, a great router but with dd-wrt software and not the stock firmware.

  • Summary: I start college this fall and just ordered a MacBook Pro. I have never had home wi-fi and knew I would need it for my laptop and also for my iPhone. My dad was out of town when I recieved this router in the mail (which shipped in only 2 days!) So I had to install it by myself. I am computer savvy - but NOT tech savvy. However, I installed the entire thing by myself in about 10 minutes and it was unbelievably simple!

  • Summary: I've owned this router for about 10 days now. So, it works great. No issues except one. Good reception in all places in the house. I bought this, since my Linksys wireless router stopped working after about 5 years great usage. I had good reception in the garage with the Linksys router, so I cheked and it's the same with this D-Link router too. One problem is with my Microsoft Lync "soft" phone client. This needs to connect to my office network Lync server.

router

Kathey, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: This is my first experience with a router or anything like it! Since my PC doesn't have a DVD or CD drive foe the install CD I thought I was lost! The phone number for customer support on the enclosed pamphlet was wrong, but once I went to their website and got the correct number and called all was well. After a 19 minute wait on hold, the tech quickly and efficiently walked me thru the setup. I don't know if it's fast or not, but works great with my cable internet.

Good simple router

  • Summary: The only hiccup I had with this router is that I had to restart my computer and power cycle the router and modem after setup. After that, everything worked great. Cheap, great range.

  • Summary: You really get what you pay for. Not the best range, some connectivity issues with iPhones but it's still a decent router. If you're close by, the speed is great.

  • Summary: I have satellite net, this product works fine with it. I did have to change its IP address, because they were the same. I'm able to get a signal anywhere in my house, my yard and to my barn. So far so good!

Adequate performance for small areas

NGEG,, TigerDirect.com
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Pros: This device has adequate coverage for small areas. Seems to have good build quality even though it is plastic.It is being used as a range extender for the second floor of my home. Cons: Very basic software without ability to set-up options as a repeater or range extender via a choice in software. I was surprised that it doesn't have a detachable antenna, as other D-Link models have. So, you cannot add a hi-gain antenna to extend range.
