There are better options out there

  • 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.

Garbage.

  • Pros: Small footprint, easy setup, many useful configuration options
  • Cons: Broke after three weeks, impossible to diagnose problems

Revision D is a Piece!

  • Summary: Don't bother. If you end up with a Rev. D, you're boned. Not worth the headache. Get an OpenWRT supported router so you aren't stuck with a company's crappy firmware.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Unreliable. Poorly Supported. Not worth the hassle!
