Summary: Up and running in less than 10 minutes without reading any manuals. First, I am replacing my Linksys BEFSR41 in order to go wireless. I have had nothing but a great experience with my Linksys. I had a hard time deciding between the D-Link product and the Linksys product. But I choose the D-Link because of the Print Server Feature and Price.
Summary: We bought a new laptop and wanted to share our DSL, but didn't want to string wire all over the place. The DI-713p and a DW-650 PC card did the trick. The hardest part of set-up was plugging it in. (The AC converter is a little boxy and I had to move some other plugs to make room) The manual looks intimidating, but the quick-start guide is all most people will need. It failed to tell me to re-start my computer after connecting the hardware.
Summary: I had broadband access at a satellite office between my desk and the main office. We decided to use an instant messenger service on all PCs to allow our employees to get messages to one another without having to tie up the phones (and in our case, to avoid long distance, interstate calls). I bought this D-Link (plus their wireless cards) and set it up myself in less than 10 minutes.
Summary: I spent 2 months researching my first networking purchase. I looked on Amazon, cnet.com, and epinion.com for input from others and Dlink consistantly received high marks. The only concern, and it involved all of the wireless mfgrs, was involving documentation. I read all of the enclosed material (very light reading) and spent additional time on D-link's FAQ before installation. I was able to get my hub and a wireless card installed within 1 hour without a hitch.
Summary: I suppose the technology inside is generic enough in these routers that there will be not much difference between one manufacturer and another, but having had an awful experience with an Addtron WAP product (customer support that wilfully lied to wiggle out of supporting their product), I decided to go with a company that had some customer support (as I could make out from Amazon's customer reviews).
Summary: My setup is as follows; 713P connected to a DSL Ethernet Modem (Alcatel) with two Dlink DWL-650 Wireless PCMCIA Network Adapters (one in a WinME Laptop, the other Win98). I have no "wired" PC connection to the 713P only wireless via the DWL-650's. I had the 713P and both laptops up running within an hour, the 713P pretty much worked out of the box, requiring only a couple of configuration changes which were clearly covered in the installation instructions.
Summary: I received this as a wish list gift after buying an 802.11b card and being blown away by the speed at the local Starbucks. With little to no technical expertise, I installed this in 20 minutes and have turned my ATT Broadband connection into a multi-computer wireless network. It works in all corners of my rather small two story home, and is very fast. Has printer connection for network as well.
Summary: We have a three computer network that (one laptop, two desktops) that shared our DSL connection (through Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing) and a HP Inkjet printer attached to one of the desktops. This was cumbersome, requiring one of our computers to be on all the time. After much researching I decided on the D-713P because 1) it offered wireless networking, 2) had the added feature of a built in print server, and 3) had received great reviews from several web sites...
How I got the D-Link wireless router to work on XP - Comcast

Summary: How did I finally get it to work? I followed the setup guide carefully. I did everything the manual said to do, step by step, in the proper order. But that didn't work. I would get no Internet connection and the cable modem would reset itself every 5 minutes. I read the reviews here and followed the suggestions. I updated the firmware. I rebooted the computer. I reset the cable modem. I rebooted the router. I repeated the above a bazillion times in different orders.
