Crap router

Steve, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • 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. I just went ahead and bought the Apple AirPort Extreme which has way better range converge throughout my house and keeps my DL/UL rates rather high. Don't waste money like I did. You get what you pay for!

True enthusiasts should avoid at all costs.

27 February 2013
  • Summary: Where to start? I've had this thing for over a year now and today was pretty much the last straw. Sometimes it works exactly as intended for a good week or so, and then other times it will drop out and completely restart itself a few times a day, usually RIGHT when you start browsing for the day.
  • Pros: Looks nifty, A lot of useful features and options
  • Cons: Constantly drops connections, Gamefuel is a gimmick (duh), Terrible and I mean TERRIBLE range

Reset, reset, reset!

JScott, Amazon

  • 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

Aaron J Dykstra, Amazon
14 September 2010
  • 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. It has what looks to be the same software, so everything is familiar. It is also feature rich. However I noticed that every 3 days or so, I would lose connection to the internet.

This product is trash

  • Summary: It worked good for about a week. Then after that, you have to reboot it every other day. Not worth the money.

Really bad service and product reliability

Denise Dyck "Technology savy", Amazon
19 December 2009
  • 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. After navigating through a very bad phone experience, I ended up talking with support people who were unable to speak even basic english further exacerbating the experience.

Worst Router Ever Made

S. Rawal "The Computer Guy", Amazon
9 October 2009
  • 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. So I decided to splurge and get the router. At first it worked great...reliable and fast. But after updating my firmware to 1.20, it has required reboots daily.

Was once a fantastic router...but what happened?

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I've had this router for over a year now. I had some minor issues with it throughout the year, but ever since the latest firmware upgrade, the connections have been choppy and laggy. The "Shareport Utility" program used to connect several USB things (i.e. printers, external hard drives, etc)and was once very useful and reliable. The newest firmware 1.21NA has been getting an endless amount of complaints about the inability to downgrade the firmware.

Great hardware, horrible firmware

Eanna, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • 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. The router LED seems cool at first, but then you long for standard router activity lights.
