Okay for ethernet, but wifi terrible

Ol' Dan "ExTexan", Amazon
5 June 2012
  • Summary: I've been struggling with this modem for over a year, and it has finally gotten so bad that I've had to convince my company to get something else. Wifi drops erratically, and at best it has poor signal strength. Also, this thing gets hot enough to cook eggs on! I have taken to using a small fan blowing on it in an attempt to keep it cool. I have a Netgear router on my home network, and it has worked well for a long time.

Pretty Unreliable

Amazon Customer "Shane Rimmer", Amazon
11 December 2010
  • Summary: This router works okay for devices that maintain their wireless connections, but it is terrible for things like Apple laptops or game consoles. About once a day, the device ends up in a state where nothing can connect to the wireless connection. Anything still on wireless will continue to function, though. I've tried everything from changing channels to turning off Wireless N support to no avail. The biggest laugh was the last firmware update promised more reliable WiFi.

OK at Best; Wireless Weak; Lasted Only One Year

Fr. Charles Erlandson, Amazon
8 December 2010
  • Summary: When I was looking for a new modem router in one, I wanted to find something that would work well but was inexpensive. After going to Best Buy, this is what I came up with. It seemed to be exactly what I needed. The good news is that for the first year I had it, when I used it with a wired connection, it worked very well. But there are 2 downsides to it.

Horribly performing device, even worse support

Morgan Rich, Amazon
26 November 2010
  • Summary: For reference, I live in a 1 bedroom apartment that's essentially shaped like one large rectangle with one wall to separate the bedroom from the rest of the apartments. I purchased this router in September of 2010, set it up next to the TV in the living room, and throughout the year I'd had problems with the wireless connection disconnecting or simply not working in the bedroom.

poor

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Was provided with this DGN1000 as an "upgrade" with my broadband speed upgrade. I was having complaints from the off with all the household complaining of slow connection, very weak or no signal in some parts of the house, drop outs etc. After compliants to the BB provide thinking it was the upgraded connection. Following them making changes at their end slight improvement of the dropping connection but still very much worse that before the upgrade.

Unstable Connectivity

18 December 2014
  • Summary: Its been few months and have tested this from 3 different geographical locations. All the place its having problem with connectivity. Sometime I was unable to browse even one webpage! If its connected, many times I get DNS errors for many sites & it will never resolve that address and page will not be displayed. I tried updating firmware, configured different settings, but none worked!!
