Summary: This router has made my gaming experience that much better. I can't wait to try it out on my other games. The router communicates quickly with my modem, and I have been very pleased with the performance. The options inside the router give the user the ability to personalize and protect his or her computer. I have enjoyed this router so far, and I hope to get many years out of it.
Summary: Had some problems at first but it turned out it was just the hardware i had thru the cable company, but once i got my cable company to bring me a new plain cable modem I hooked up my new DGL-4300 router and setup was a breeze. With my old router I had a lot of connection issues when trying to play games online, especially xbox live.
Summary: After being a fan of the Linksys brand (exclusively) of routers and switches for years, how is it that I could be instantly turned to the "other side" so quickly? Because this is simply the best router I've ever owned, that's how. Quick Review: I won't drag on with a long boring review (you can find those elsewhere), instead this is just a quick summary of my feelings of this router after using it for the past 8 months.
Summary: I agree with all the preceeding reviews. This router is extremely stable, has a fantastic range, the blue LEDs and black chromed finish are beautiful too. Best router I've ever owned. I'm posting here to add that (once you upgrade to the 1.5 firmware) this router works great with BOTH X-Box Live and Nintendo Wi-Fi with no additional setup.
Summary: We had 3 desktops, a laptop and a TiVo all wirelessly connected in our home using Linksys adapters and a WRT54G Linksys wireless G router. That router was the bane of my existence--it dropped signal constantly, at least 3-4 times per day, for no explicable reason. Numerous calls to Linksys as well as warranty replacements and firmware tweaks did nothing to fix the issue.
Summary: This DGL-4300 is the nicest router I have owned, in looks, features and reliability. My previous routers were an SMC, Microsoft MN-100, Microsoft MN-500, Linksys WRT54G. I've owned this router for over a month now. This router basically is everything I want in a router, minus a few bugs. Such as if I uncheck one of the logging options, and then it will email me a blank log file instead. The log file btw is detailed, and holds many log entries (350 or more)....
Summary: D-Link only made one mistake with this router, and that was bad marketing. They shouldn't market this as a 'Gaming' router, but more as their premium brand router. The real option that makes this router shine is that it just works. I had initially bought a linksys WRT54G seeing that Cisco bought linksys and I thought it would be great but it was bad news. It was slow, had poor signal strength compared the 4300 and wouldn't 'just work' with the PSP and the Gameboy DS.
