Unreliable

Nate, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: It of course always hard to say whether you got a bad unit or whether all are bad. I know for sure that my router is unreliable and conclude from the other reviews that at least the quality control in the production of this router is very poor.

Not worth the money

Niner, Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: I have used this router for over a year now, and I have finally had enough of the darn thing needing to be unplugged for 5-10 mins after any power hiccup. I've never tried the 'freezer method' that Uwe uses (see below), but I have the exact same issue on a Rev D product.

Not for permanent connections

Uwe R. Kackstaetter, Amazon
15 July 2007
  • Summary: I bought a DI-524 about 2 years ago for our home network. We are connected to a microwave link, so it is an ALWAYS ON connection. The router works... most of the time. Sometimes we lose the internet, usually after a power outage. The problem is the router.

The Product had Two Faults

Alex. Robertson, Amazon
29 January 2007
  • Summary: Marked as new; the WAN port was faulty (unable to receive the internet, I had to use one of the other number ports for this) and I also spent 50 minutes on the phone with D-Link customer support, who deduced that the wireless was also faulty (no matter what it would not transmit).

be prepared for reboots/freeze!!!

Dinesh, Amazon
13 January 2007
  • Summary: I totally agree with frustated people who bought this after reading other's good reviews. This product has many revisions. Atleast do not buy Revision 'D'. You can have a look below the product for revision number. It SUPPORTS :) multiple freezing and it does it without any known reason.

Don't Buy This Router!

Wyatt J. Thurston, Amazon
23 August 2006
  • Summary: I bought this router after a friend reccomended it to me. I followed the instructions exactly yet the connections kept resetting continously. I contacted the manufacturer three times and they were unable to solve the problem. I also called my Internet Service Provider and they were no help.

Cheap, effective router. But buggy.

Mike, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: This router has a great price, especially when on sale. The firewall (built in) is pretty good as well. But the problem with D-link, with their 500 series is that it disconnects you from the internet occassionally.

Fast and unreliable

Pace Ripley, Amazon
19 June 2006
  • Summary: I got this router free from Verizon with my FiOS broadband service. Performance-wise, it offers very fast connectivity, whether wireless or wired. The wireless range is more than decent, althouh I am not using it in a multi-story environment which normally provides the most challenge to wireless...
