You must use old firmware to make this router work

Dakota Kid, Amazon
13 April 2006
  • Summary: The newer versions of the firmware destroy performance and make this router virtually worthless. I found that out the hard way. I had to go back to factory settings, then install firmware 1.03 from January 2004 and I haven't had a problem since. It sounds crazy but there are well documented problems from the firmware upgrades with this router. I'd give it 5 stars for performance and 0 for tech support / product support for the unusable firmware upgrades.

Good wired router, not wireless

  • Summary: Cheap, but you may just want to get the router and ditch the wireless card or hope you get a WPA-compatible card.
  • Pros: Cheap, wired part works fine.
  • Cons: WPA encryption is dysfunctional; hot card; iffy build quality; adapter too wide.

The D-Link DI-524 is a low-cost low-horsepower entry level wireless gateway.

  • Summary: Buy the D-Link DI-524 if you can get it cheaply and if you intend to use it for light workloads. Use another product for heavy workloads.
  • Pros: The DI-524 is inexpensive and compatible with most wireless clients.
  • Cons: The DI-524 is unsuitable for intensive applications like gaming, torrents, and service hosting.

Pense antes de comprar um roteador D-LINK

e-bit, Bondfaro
12 February 2011
  • Summary: Assistência técnica muito longe. Fui informado pela D-link que deveria levar o produto para reparo até a assistência técnica da Santa Efigênia, Moro em Santo André e descobri que tinha uma assistencia em São Caetano do Sul más só foi possível usar a assistência de São caetano do Sul após contratar a Garantia premium no valor de R$ 49,90. (Tremenda sacanagem).
  • Pros: Quando não dá problema até que funciona bem se não tiver barreiras
  • Cons: produto apresentou problemas no décimo primeiro dia de uso.

Deixa a desejar

alexandre, Bondfaro
6 November 2010
  • Summary: O produto é bom, quando funciona, funciona bem, mas o descaso da empresa para com o consumidor faz com que eu não o indique para ninguém. Melhor comprar de outra marca, pois senão quando precisar trocar por algum defeito, o consumidor vai ficar na mão. Já faz 26 dias que estou sem o aparelho esperando a troca por outro. O antigo estragou com 2 semanas de uso.
  • Pros: Sinal excelente, fácil de configurar e conecta pelo menos 2 notes ao mesmo tempo.
  • Cons: Durabilidade baixíssima, com pouco mais de 2 semanas estragou. Levei na assistência e não teve conserto, tem que ser realizada a troca. Porém já faz quase 30 dias que estou esperando outro pois a D-Link não manda os aparelhos. Conforme funcionário da assistência, tem vinte e poucos para trocar.
