8 Years and no problems

VioletSkye, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I used this router for over 8 years with no problems. I also purchased one for my mother-in-law about 8 years ago and she is still using it with no problems. I recently replaced the router, because I needed a router that supports N and parental controls.

Solid

Ryan K., Newegg
21 August 2011
  • Summary: For every day traffic, its a good router. For torrenting or heavy traffic, you'll need something better.
  • Pros: I've had this thing for about 6 years. It's been in service as a Switch/WAP only. I use Smoothwall to handle all the DHCP and firewall business. Only have had the wireless lock up and stop functioning once in that period of time.
  • Cons: The current one I've been using over 6 years was my second one. First one was RMA'd as it eventually stopped communicating. D-Link honored the RMA even though I didn't have the original receipt (I paid with a gift card and mailed in for a rebate, never made a copy). Doesn't handle torrent traffic...

  • Summary: This is the second of these that I've purchased. Its a good router, especially for the price. Beware that its "G" and not "N" though. It gets the job done though

Happy to have found one!

Haleygirl, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: My original router went out and I really wanted another one just like it (I am not technology saavy). I just wanted something I could just plug in and use when it came without having to go through a lot of set up stuff. I was very happy when it arrived and it was exactly as advertised.

It works, it works.

Huawen j., Newegg
24 November 2008
  • Summary: I use this router as wired switch only because I distrust wireless. Besides the wired Gbit Ethernet is way faster! To prove the concept, I did use the laptop card to hang to other nets around me! The card works great in grabbing SSID signals.
  • Pros: It works great.
  • Cons: Maybe the slower speed but not at the time I bought it.

Awsome router

Javier H., Newegg
6 October 2008
  • Summary: - needs more ports :-D - needs to cook and clean.
  • Pros: - This is to date the best router I have ever owned to date. - Router + Gigabit switch - Relatively easy interface to use, however it does require some knowledge of routers. (You don't build a computer without some knowledge of how to install the components)
  • Cons: - NONE!

Great router

Lisa C., Newegg
14 February 2008
  • Summary: If you're not very tech savvy, don't buy something from D-link. I can't ever get a straight answer and the few times I've called, they just blamed it on my isp when they couldn't figure it out.
  • Pros: This thing lasts forever. I bought it a few weeks after release in 2004 and its still running. I wish I could find an N just like this thing. I rarely have to cycle it and I play on live more than 15 hours a week. Usually about once ever 2 months I need to cycle it at most. It has survived my sma...
  • Cons: On the few times I've had to call support, I've had a hard time with their lack of knowledge. Google is a much better bet for getting an answer as most of their support team knows nothing. If this router actually needed a ton of tech support that couldn't be found on google, it would get a 1 egg ...

Installed 4 of these!

Brad H., Newegg
4 June 2007
  • Summary: D-link’s tech support is decent and has helped me solve my issues quickly. They helped me disable DHCP at the office to avoid IP conflicts with our main router.
  • Pros: I have installed 4 of these over the last 2 years. The first one ran for 2 years w/o incident but recently upgraded the firmware to solve a connection problem. I installed the 2nd ~ a year ago and started using the wireless about 6 months ago w/o any issues using WEP 128 bit. The last 2 that I in...
  • Cons: 3 out of 4 have needed firmware updates.
