D-Link DI-524 Router Easy To Use

opalhen, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: We recently had Sattellite Internet installed.  My husband wanted to network his laptop computer with the new service.  We used the D-Link DI-524 Router.  I was surprised that I was able to get networked fairly easy using this router.  The instructions were simple and everything worked great.  Only problem I  had was that the dial up connection he had installed on his laptop kept popping up a box saying connect or stay offline.

Inexpensive and effective.

  • Excerpt: Got this router free after rebate a few years ago at an after thanksgiving sale. I purchased it with low expectations, and three years later it's still running and running well. This is a basic router that I use to connect both a laptop (wirelessly) and a desktop (wired) to a cable modem. The router is fast, easy to set up, and reliable. I would highly recommend.

Reliable router for a great price!

  • Excerpt: We bought our D-link wireless router at Best Buy 4 years ago.  We have never had a problem with this router and we have always had great internet service for both our desktop and laptop computers.  We take our laptop all over the house.  In fact, we even take our laptop outside on our deck and we get perfect service.  This router is about 4 inches long and 3 inches wide with 1 inch in height.  The router is silver and grey so it is small and subtle.

Great Value Router with a Surprise!

  • Summary: The Dl-524 is a terrific buy for the $20-30 after rebate it's selling at and an insanely terrific buy if you buy the C1-version since it's upgradeable to a Dl-624.
  • Pros: Possible to upgrade to Dl-624, price, general performance, amount of options
  • Cons: Input/Output limit, newest firmware is very unstable

worked for me!

  • Summary: Cheers D-Link !
  • Pros: There are four hardware releases of this product. I got the "D" release. I got it up and running and have had zero problems. Working perfectly with no disconns or reboots. Maybe the "D" release is the one to get? This thing is way better than my old SMC which had to go through 3 firmware updates to be stable, and it still lost connectivity once a week. Well worth the low price.
  • Cons: Not any really. Maybe the cheesy web interface that looks like it was developed by my grandma using some AOL web design tool.

Solid Performance

Derek S., Newegg
6 February 2006
  • Summary: You must take the time to learn how to configure ANY network router manually using the router's IP address. It will save you alot of time and effort during initial setup and when troubleshooting. I have never seen a router that worked out-of-box using only the installation the CD.
  • Pros: Runs 2 laptops, and a pocket pc with no issues. Also, Have 2 network hubs for a total of 8 wired connections. I use DHCP, Static DHCP, and IP filters to block several computers from accessing the internet. Speed on all connections are solid. Range is similar to any other wireless router.
  • Cons: When first set up, it had drops every 15min or so. I went into the router configuration and modified a few settings and that eliminated the problem. For the life of me I can't remember which settings.

Excellent, solid, cheap -- what more could you want?

Pete B., Newegg

  • Summary: I've installed more than 40 of these routers for friends and family and haven't had any problems at all.
  • Pros: Incredibly easy setup. You can go from a sealed box to a functional and secure home network in 15 minutes if the cables are already in place or you're using wireless. If you want an inexpensive router (which you do) that just works (mac, PC, linux, etc), this is one.
  • Cons: I've thought about this, because I don't like to say that something has no drawbacks, and the best I can do is that it doesn't fix me sandwiches when I'm hungry.
