Router that fails to do it's job.

C12ASH, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: My experience with this router has been an awful one. It constantly drops connection and randomly reboots. I couldn't host any games online and was always getting dropped from MMOs as well. The display as I see it is completely useless and will most likely be rarely used, its a novelty at best.

  • Summary: picked this router up for gaming. first off, unless your a extremely cpu savy which i am not, i would not recommend this product. you have to set the unit up for gaming which they call game fuel. just using their preset game fuel settings, my connection did not improve.

Sketchy reliability

Daniel J. Givens, Amazon

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this router. Even though I got disconnects when doing big file transfers across the wireless. Even though the port forwarding configuration is way too convoluted. I wanted to like it. It looked pretty. It has the neat display on the front.

Fails every 5 minutes under heavy traffic

Maskoficarus, Amazon

  • Summary: This is supposed to be a gaming router. However, it seems to fail on me most often when I am trying to play PC shooters. There is nothing more infuriating than being disconnected from a BBC2 server every 15 minutes. It makes the game completely unplayable.

  • Summary: Set up was absolutely horrible. I put the installation disk in my computer and fallowed the instructions to the T. Somehow my computer couldnt find the router. After an hour of messing around with it I called customer support.

When it works it is great.

Northlander, Amazon
23 April 2010
  • Summary: When this router works, it really is an excellent router. The problem that I have had is that when this router is pushed, it locks up and NOTHING gets through. All of a sudden you are unable to do anything on the web, not even browse. Soon as you reset the power on the router, it works great again.

Absolutely Pitiful - Laptop adapters connect at 54Mbps ONLY! Confirmed by Tech Support!

J. Dash "Benchmarker", Amazon

  • Summary: Everyone checks the wireless signal strength when using a wireless connection but I'm not sure if everyone checks their connection speed. I've used Netgear and Linksys N routers in the past and I've never had problems.

Started out strong but ruined by firmware problems

  • Summary: DLink started out phenomenally with this router. It was fast, stable, and received rave reviews almost everywhere. Then it came time to update the firmware, and things started going down hill.

Flash in a pan... Save your money.

Wesley Fowler, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I bought one of the D-Link DGL-4500 Routers when it first came out. This router was the most expensive one I've ever bought that was a non-enterprise router. The Gigabit Interface, OLED display, and the "Dual" band support for Wireless draft N was more than I could resist. At first it seemed great.

Does not work as advertised

J. Fleegle, Amazon
22 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this router because I wanted one that will also act as a server for a USB hard drive and a USB printer. I was also in the market to replace my Linksys WRT54GL because my bandwidth was starting to exceed the capacity of the chip that powers that unit.
