Small and good

MarriedRhombus, Amazon

  • Summary: I got DI-524 when I bought a D-link package that included this wireless router and a wireless notebook card. My only reason I bought this was the price ($80 for the whole package). The installation of the DI-524 was supposed to be straightforward because of the installation wizard. The browser-based wizard detects your broadband connection and launches the appropriate means to configure a static or dynamic IP address or one that's PPPoE - or PPTP-based.

Nice little wireless router

Eugene Mah "physics geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not sure if the other reviewers have problems reading instructions or if they just skipped steps. Had no problems at all getting this unit set up and establishing connections between my desktop and Inspiron 5150. Take it out of the box, connect an ethernet cable between the desktop and router and plug it in. Use your favourite browser to connect to 198.168.1.1 and run through the setup wizard.

  • Summary: I recommend this for its affordability and flexibility. However, you should not rely on this as a sole source of security. Firmware upgrades recommended.
  • Pros: Logging, traffic stats, client info, and firewall enforcement (with ZAP). Stable, functional, low priced.
  • Cons: Admin login name cannot be changed, making it easier to hack. Firewall is buggy.
