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.
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.
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 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: We purchased the D-Link DI-524 wireless router when Best buy had it on sale awhile ago, I believe it was under $40. It was equipped with everything we needed, wireless access, and 4 ethernet ports. Our current setup includes 2 wireless laptops and 2 wired desktop computers, and the D-Link DI-524 appears to handle the traffic load very well.
