stable connection, easy to use. need some knowledge for set up.

Excerpt: I got this at a dirt cheap price last year with a notebook adapter as well. The router works perfectly although it needs some knowledge to set up the network. but once it is on, I don't need to worry about it any more - I did not reboot it for at least 3 months ...However, the notebook adapter is not working at all. It will detect the signal and then refuse to work.
Excerpt: We recently had Sattellite Internet installed. My husband wanted to network his laptop computer with the new service. We used the D-Link DI-524 Router. I was surprised that I was able to get networked fairly easy using this router. The instructions were simple and everything worked great. Only problem I had was that the dial up connection he had installed on his laptop kept popping up a box saying connect or stay offline. This was resolved as soon as I deleted all...
Excerpt: Got this router free after rebate a few years ago at an after thanksgiving sale. I purchased it with low expectations, and three years later it's still running and running well. This is a basic router that I use to connect both a laptop (wirelessly) and a desktop (wired) to a cable modem. The router is fast, easy to set up, and reliable. I would highly recommend.
Excerpt: We bought this router to hook up a second computer in a house with a rather spread out floor plan. We were worried that the second computer would be too far away but this D-link router works great. It was a little challenging to hook up. I build my own computers so I consider myself fairly tech savvy but getting this to work took a bit of trial and error. One thing we did have problems with was securing the network. We never did get that to work, but it was unclear...
Excerpt: We bought our D-link wireless router at Best Buy 4 years ago. We have never had a problem with this router and we have always had great internet service for both our desktop and laptop computers. We take our laptop all over the house. In fact, we even take our laptop outside on our deck and we get perfect service. This router is about 4 inches long and 3 inches wide with 1 inch in height. The router is silver and grey so it is small and subtle.
Excerpt: Entry-level router, even though not always the cheaper. Netgear and TP-Link offered better solutions to basic users whom look for an affordable wireless solution. Not much to say about this particular model. Have been using DI-524 54 Mbps for a while, and now DI-524 150 (150 Mbps), both use the same old silver case, just like my former 2001 DSL Modem (Dlink too). And unfortunately it is just not appearance that is poor.
Excerpt: I want to believe it’s the house structure though, since the wireless signal has to go through so many walls and floors sometimes. We use the basic encryption for the router and have not ran into any problems with setting that up or accessing it. The DI-524 is also a nice size, as the rectangular shape allows it to stand up freely or lay on its side.
