Not as good as my last D-Link router

notwarrenbuffett, Amazon
9 September 2007
  • 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 reported it), which is to throttle the WAN port down from 100 to 10 Mbps. Then I wanted to use MAC address filtering, a really good security feature, which I'd used with the old one.

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 routers. That said, compared to my older SMC Barricade router, this D-Link unit suffers from a bad management user interface and worse than all, reliability issues.
