Pros: i bought this with my friends help years ago when i had no computer knowledge.
Cons: worked well for a year or so then started dropping connection. you can restart your comp/router then it may start working again but why should i have to do this? makes no sense. def not a long term item.
Summary: I had this router for a year and a half. It will work fine when you first get it. But it will get problems like disconnects and reboots. Then you have to either reset or reinstall the firmware. It can work fine for a year or a few days and it will start disconnecting. It's really unreliable.
Pros: I got the router without the card for under $30. It's good when it works.
Cons: This router is now bundled with an adapter I see. The router is cheaply made. It will work for a while then it will start disconnecting and/or rebooting. You have to work to get it to work right again. Thing is you never know when it's gonna go out.
Pros: Very good price for this router. Worked great out of the box, no issue, until I had owned it for a year (see cons).
Cons: After about a year, I noticed it was dropping the PPoE connection ever 5-10 minutes. I had already done all the firmware upgrades, and a few hard-resets. After trying another router, I confirmed that it was indeed the router that was causing the problems.
Summary: Bought because it was cheap 2 years ago after rebate. Mine was hardware revC1, firmware updated to v3.23. Newer versions out there which may fix the reliability but you will still get the same Dlink Tech service which from my experience makes your warranty worthless.
Pros: Worked great for a year until it started dying. Used as wireless (w/wpa-psk) and hardwired router. Straightforward setup, got along well with my cable modem,good filtering (IP, MAC), no problems with intermixing b & g modes for wireless.
Cons: Started to die a couple months ago. Would randomly drop the connections and reset. Every few minutes recently. Called Dlink tech to RMA under the 3-year warranty ... they had me on the phone for an hour during which several times it would drop the PC. I gave up, hung up, and ordered another from ...
Summary: had one router that had poor signal all the time even when the computer was a foot away.ive updated the firmware and still poor signal. then moved in with someone with same router and theirs got an excellent signal.
Pros: router works great when you get a good one. easy to set up
Cons: wireless home telephones constantly drops the signal when the telephone is being used by the router.
