Summary: Pro: + Works great. Using a laptop, I noticed no difference between doing a speed test connected directly to my cable modem versus going through the router. + Very easy to setup. At the simplest level, it can be setup by simply plugging your modem into the WAN port and your devices into the LAN ports. + Worked fine for my XB360, PS3, P2P, and media LAN traffic. + It can be found very cheap. I paid less than $30 for mine off of Newegg.
Summary: If you are a heavy user and/or have quite a few devices on your network, this router will drop packets. It will look like you are losing internet connectivity for 5-60 seconds occasionally. If you look at the router's log, it says it is dropping packets when the load gets heavy. This is a known problem with this product, and they have not done anything to fix it in year. AVOID. Mine is going to the recycle bin.
constantly loses connections. Testimonials from others included. Do not buy at all costs.

Summary: This router works great when it works. However, It would lose connections every now and then and you have to wait a couple minutes to 10 minutes for the router to come back. When it's lost connections, you cannot use the internet. It might go a whole week without losing connections but sometimes(like today) you can lose connections a couple times a day. Today, I lost connections 5 times and that motivated me to write this.
Summary: I've had this router for just over a year, and finally got so fed up with its constant problems that I replaced it. I should have known from the start something was wrong when after implementing this router many sites became flaky, such as Google Maps in Satellite mode. Pages would stop updating, only to work minutes later. At the time I suspected the computer, but then things got worse. I like to open lots of tabs in the browser.
Summary: THis product is perhaps the most horrible thing I've bought from Amazon, and especially from DLink. I googled this router before buying, and the internet is FULL of issues about it, but for the low price, I figured I would take my chances. MISTAKE. Router works for 5mins, then fails. Reset, it will work for 5mins, then fail. Firmware is up-to-date. Other routers on same connection do not duplicate this issue. THIS PRODUCT IS FAULTY.
Summary: Actually as far as a straight-through connection it worked - but there was a fatal flaw. I could not access the configuration page, which meant I could not do the IP assignments, Port Forwarding etc necessary to actually allow it to be useful in my environment. Instead I just got an error message when I tried to access the configuration page. D-Link Tech "Support" was a joke. They were overseas and clueless, and could think of nothing.
Poor Mac Documentation : Mac Installation Guide Below

Summary: I'd give this 4 stars but I've deducted 1 star for the bad Mac setup documentation. GRIPES FIRST: Right out of the box some of the router ports are covered up telling the user to read the documentation first. If that's so critical, why is this setup poor for Mac users? The set-up wizard on the CD-Rom DOES NOT work for Macs. The CD-Rom sleeve tells Mac (and Linux) users to find the documentation in the bin\docs folder of the CD-Rom.
Summary: I was using a Linksys wired router/switch for a few years. I was constantly losing VPN connection and having to re-connect. I put in VOIP (Vonage) phone and had to restart every 3 hours. I thought I had cable modem problems, network problems, config. problems on router. Finally, I ordered the D-Link EBR-2310 (because it was very inexpensive). I took it out of the box, plugged it in, connected my (4) network cables including a wireless connection.
Summary: Although the box doesn't say so, this unit does set up and run with the Mac. Just ignore the Setup Wizard on the CD and most of the 66-page manual on the CD. To set up the router, connect the unit to your Mac using the thoughtfully included Ethernet cable, be sure you are NOT connected to the Internet, power up the router and your Mac, [...]. The router will self-configure, asking you to change the password if you so choose. Piece of cake.
Summary: This router might make a good frisbee, but as a router it is an unspeakable piece of dog doo. Right out of the box, it intermittently dropped Internet connections for minutes at a time. Going through the installation process with the included CD, it informed me that I did "not have the correct router". Silly me. As for tech support, you would be hard-pressed to find support as bad as D-Link's.
