Summary: Worked fine for me out of the box (firmware was already most recent version). Easy to configure and has worked flawlessly for me for three weeks now. Print server is a wonderful feature. Although d-link doesn't document it, linux machines can use the print server by simply using an lpd queue named 'lp' at the switch's ip address (192.168.0.1).
Great value, solid performer, with some room for improvement

Summary: Pros: reasonable price; three ports for wired connections; reasonably simple administration procedures and usable interface; integrated print server (parallel connector) Cons: no support for bi-directional communications with my HP LaserJet 1200se (e.g., it no longer tells me I'm out of paper, etc.).
Summary: I wanted a DSL/Cable router with wireless access point, 10/100 switch, and built-in print server, and only 2 products fit my budget: D-Link and SMC. I picked D-Link primarily because one of its product had a pretty good rating in PC Magazine wireless testing. I first attached my desktop through a standard ethernet port, and it worked like a charm. The installation was no more than 10 min - really!
Summary: I spent several hours online, exploring various wireless network hardware specs and reviews before finally deciding on a D-Link wireless system. This DI-713P Wireless Broadband Router had both hardwire and wireless ports. This allowed me to continue using the wired Ethernet card already installed in my P3-800 Windows-Me PC, yet also install wireless networking for my wife's P2-400 Windows-Me PC (located about 25' away) and for our P2-233 Windows 98 SE laptop, no matter...
Summary: I had problems with my first D-Link DI-713P wireless broadband router, because it wouldn't stay up for more than 20 minutes. I brought it back to the store and exchanged for another one. Everything is fine with the second one. It's been up and running ever since.
Summary: I got the DI713-P and a Dlink DW650H card from Amazon, at great prices ... . Prices have gone up quite a bit after that. Delivery took longer than usual about a week. First of all, set it up with an access readily available to the net. Check inmediatly the firmware level (in my case I upgraded the unit from 2.57 as shipped to the latest 2.60) and upgrade it to the lattest, from the D-Link site (either www or ftp).
Very satisfied except for an issue with running ftp server

Summary: Overall, I am very satisfied with this product. It has been working uninterrupted for a week now. It doesn't get very warm either. Oh, yes, I like the style and color of the new version of the product I received too. The setup wasn't as easy as I had expected. I noticed two problems: one is that the quick start guide pretty much assumes you are doing the setup on a Windows 9x machine by instructing you to run "winipcfg" in configuring an IP address.
Summary: The unit is very easy to install via the web browser, accessing the router's own setup software (there is nothing to install for the router, except for the printer server!) My configuration is for 1 wired XP pc, and 3 wireless DWL-120 USB adapter-connected ME pc's. The wired setup was a breeze with internet connection 10 minutes into my install at a fast 1.6 Mbp/sec communication speed.
Summary: I ordered this with some apprehension given some of the comments from others. I set up the unit in my office and the installation went quickly and without problems. The primary reason for doing this is that I was running DSL off a phone line in my home office and I have another computer in my study on the other side of the house where we do our personal stuff.
