Summary: As with anything that is outdated almost daily, the Dlink DI-624 still has what it takes to set up a home network. Only drawback is that on will have to do some online research for installation and troubleshooting. Dlink has all manuals available but little else for this outdated model.
Summary: Its a simple router that my daughter was able to set up with no previous experience. Everything came with it except the Ethernet cable, Well it was a used device. The price was right in fact it cost more to send it than I think I paid for it. It worked right out of the box.
Summary: Nice wireless router, a little old - but can support all modern protocols of data transfer & encryption, can bring it up both PPTP and PPPoE connections. But - first I`ve done when it arrived to me - is upgrade firmware and replace standard 2 dbi antenna with more powerful 7 dbi.
Summary: I personally have the D-Link DIR-655 router, but bought this for my GF for her new apartment. Only had it for a short time so I can't give any long term assesment. However, it was purchased "used" on ebay and it works perfectly now. Nice looking router and very easy to setup.
Summary: After reading over 100 reviews on this router, I basically starting fudging my Huggies thinking that installing it was gonna be some kind of total nightmare. But it turned out to be a total no-brainer... in fact, I'm sure my mom could do it, no problem.
Pros: - No brainer installation (even for total newbs) - Cheap with lots of advanced features (although there's definitely a learning curve involved in order to acquire an appreciation for them).
Cons: - Help file for 'web-based configuration utility' needs a rewrite (and some serious fleshing out especially with regards to how to configure the firewall).
