Summary: It was ok for the cost, but really tired of it.
Pros: With it being on sale and rebate it was free, with shipping. It got us by but it's going to the recycle center soon.
Cons: Freezes up a lot, DHCP server stops working when you go from Linux to Windows or visa versa. Sometimes when you put a new machine on you need to unplug it for 15-20 minutes before it will give an address.
Summary: I previously had a D-Link DI-713P 802.11b wireless router which worked very well, and I got this one to have the higher speeds and extra firewall features (and the low price). First of all, to get it to work at all with my cable modem I had to do what others said here (and boy am I glad they...
Summary: When it is transmitting, I have a strong clear signal and fast service. But it frequently just stops for no apparent reason, requiring me to go back to the other room and reset it - again, and again and again. The receiver is only about 15' away on the far side of the next room.
Pros: Fast delivery; cheap price; rebate at time of my purchase (I even got it); removable antenna. The wired part of the router works great.
Cons: Wireless signal frequently cuts out requiring a reset (unplug-replug power) as often as every 5 minutes, but sometimes good for up to an hour.
Summary: Overall, this router is fine for people who want a cheap, basic unit for general network setup and wireless within a single room. For anyone with slightly elevated needs however, spend your money elsewhere.
Pros: For basic wireless and routing capability, this router seems to work just fine, and isn't difficult to configure. A lot of people also have them, so there's quite a lot of information on the web to help a new user configure their router to work with most DSL or cable modems.
Cons: First, the range on the unit leaves a lot to be desired. Wireless strength is weak at best from one or two rooms away. Second, the router needs a reset after nearly all minor configuration changes, disrupting network communication. And third, worst of all, the router crashes regularly when downlo...
Summary: I've had other D-Link products taht worked fine, this is the first time I've had one of their wireless routers. So, I'm not sure if I just got a bad one or if they're all a little flaky.
Pros: Relatively easy to install. Compact design that can mount on the wall.
Cons: This device stopped working after being installed for one week. It actually sat idle for a week and on the very day we cut the office over to the new wireless network, the box locked up and would not ever reset properly.
Summary: The wireless range just defeats the purpose of being wireless.
Pros: Easy set up and works as a wired router.
Cons: I recieved one of the Rev A's and its wireless range is ridiculous. I upgraded the firmware but it had no impact on this. I'm "using" it with D-Link DWL-G122 USB 2.0 High Speed 2.4GHz Wireless Adapter and it will not stay connected one room away.
Summary: Believe what the reviewers are saying. This product is not worth the hassle. I'm sure some of them work just fine but it's not worth the risk or time.
Pros: When I first reived the product i was happy with how easy it was to set up.
Cons: After working with the device after leaving it on for a week i would freeze during a reboot which is required to change most of the settings. After working with it for a few hours like this I had enough. I returned and am buying a linksys.
