Old Technology, But Stll Works

Scott Worthington, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: I have had this router for 7 or 8 years. I had it disconnected for a few years, then reinstalled it a year ago after getting my first WiFi device. I have only had one problem, recently I had to reset it because my wifi was really slow. Powering down and resetting took my download speed (apeedtest.net app for iPad) from 0.5 M to 3-6 M. Plenty fast enough for a single device to stream video.

8 Years and no problems

VioletSkye, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I used this router for over 8 years with no problems. I also purchased one for my mother-in-law about 8 years ago and she is still using it with no problems. I recently replaced the router, because I needed a router that supports N and parental controls. I am kinda sad to see it go, because it has a nearly perfect form factor, easy and useful web interface, and is extremely reliable.

Solid

Ryan K., Newegg
21 August 2011
  • Summary: For every day traffic, its a good router. For torrenting or heavy traffic, you'll need something better.
  • Pros: I've had this thing for about 6 years. It's been in service as a Switch/WAP only. I use Smoothwall to handle all the DHCP and firewall business. Only have had the wireless lock up and stop functioning once in that period of time.
  • Cons: The current one I've been using over 6 years was my second one. First one was RMA'd as it eventually stopped communicating. D-Link honored the RMA even though I didn't have the original receipt (I paid with a gift card and mailed in for a rebate, never made a copy). Doesn't handle torrent traffic that well. Would lock up after extended periods of heavy traffic

  • Pros: Cheap, good connectivity,* Last forever it seems. Purchased it in late 2004 and it still works to this day.
  • Cons: Its never been that great for gaming. *I tried to get it to work for lan parties back when I first got it but under load it would reset itself constantly.

Really bad *AVOID*

NonTech guy, Amazon
6 August 2011
  • Summary: This router overheats everyday and twice on Saturday. Requires constant reseting. If you want a router that you have to mess with every time you want to get on the internet buy this one. If you want a router that WORKS I suggest you keep looking and buy a different one.
