Summary: This router says it's for gaming, yet every time I would try to play games online it would block the internet IPs trying to connect so I could play. I wasted my money on this router and suggest you don't waste yours too.
Summary: All I can really say is even after a firmware update this thing never worked properly. Extremly happy with Amazon's return policy! Ordered a Linksys and waiting for it to arrive! My advice is to research this product for problems before you decide to buy it.
Loads of features, only runs for 3 days before needing a reboot

Summary: After my DGL-4100 gave up the ghost after 5 years, I needed a replacement. The DGL-4100 was a great router and ran consistently so I looked for one in the same line. Unfortunately the quality of the product I saw in the 4100 is lacking in this relatively current model.
Summary: I purchased this router to improve the range and response time of our internet signal. The router was relatively easy to set up. I use a MAC filter for security and noticed that the administrater application would properly provide support for it.
Summary: [...] Visit the the DGL-4500 message board using the link above and see for yourself! This router barely works for about 1-3 days tops with speeds that should be an embarrassment to Dlink and there HORRIBLE customer support. This router has more problems than you can imagine.
Summary: *I highly suggest not buying this router until firmware issues are fixed!* I bought this router as my previous D-Link was becoming unreliable. I read the reviews (this was before the firmware fiasco) and everyone was raving about how great this product was.
Summary: When this router worked, it was blazing fast. With any firmware beyond what it came with (1.02), it wouldn't save settings beyond a few changes. Also, it would lock up under heaving gaming load (hosting a Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 PC coop server). It would also randomly reboot.
Great when it worked but died four months after 1 year warranty

Summary: I was reasonably happy with this router until it died suddenly, mid-raid last night (we play World of Warcraft). I was sorry to discover (a) it has only a one year warranty and (b) that warranty expired barely four months ago.
