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.
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.
Poor Mac Documentation : Mac Installation Guide Below
Arnim Zola, Amazon
15 February 2014
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'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.

This router is JUNK!!!! Don't waste your time & money...
8 June 2012
Summary: This router is JUNK!!!! The only thing it will do is the green power light will turn on but that is it!!!... My wife spent a couple of hours on the phone with D-links customer service & the piece is still just a DISCONTINUED paper weight & it doesn't even do that very well, maybe that is why D-link has DISCONTINUED the piece... I definitely would not & do not recommend this product to a ANYONE!!!...
Summary: All i can say is find out if the router has to be setup or if its plug and play out of the box. I did not set my 2wire dsl modem/router to a standalone modem so i dont know if it will work at times but only time will tell as it might have ip conflics and if so will need to find out more info on how and where to change it so it acts like it should.
