Summary: I've had this router for ONLY 30 days, and already I will NEVER ever buy another D-link. THAT's how bad it is. I've tried everything from changing channels to static IP's, to dd-wrt. NOTHING saved me from this piece of garbage router.
Summary: dont waste ur time if need anything other than inet access. forget the ios apps, they are window dressing only. on rare instance few worked, cannot reconize dlink product, etc
Pros: none, as it just burns time
Cons: too many to list ios apps not work,! cannot sign in via web and laptop either, drops signal, poor documentation, 5th grader grammar, crashed 2x needed number of resets, performs like a no brand product but priced at high end, for a paper weight
The router looses the ability to forward wireless pkts.

Summary: Don't buy this router but other dlink products are good like the 655.
Pros: I think this router might have worked before I upgraded the firmware. May work as a wired only router.
Cons: Fails to work as a wireless router after a few hours. This router caused a lock up on my fixed wireless modem. Time cannot be set beyond 2012. After replacing this router with a different model my network worked fine.
Summary: Buyer beware! High chance of getting a lemon.
Pros: Price & IT comes network cable and power brick ;-)
Cons: Using as switch on internal network. Disconnects wifi/Lan ports every 30 minutes for about minute. Previous firmware was worse. Have configured 100's of routers without these issues. Maybe high lemon count (why some seem ok?). Maybe go with DD-WRT?
Summary: The DVD with the set up instructions do not mention crucial points in the installation process and I had to guess. It didn't work the first time so I had to call technical services which helped get it working.
I'm taking this back. Worst router I've ever used.

Summary: This is a piece of crap disguised as a router.
Pros: - Cheap, - Ok wireless network
Cons: - Bundled installation guide did not work., - Disconnects several times per day., - Had to call customer support to change language to English., - After trying to change its IP address from the default, I can now no longer connect with the router.
Summary: Got the DIR-615 to boost range and speed. For three months all was well. Then all (two) computers suddenly, sporadically could not print. The two printers are connected to the router through the ethernet sockets and the two computers are wified.
Summary: Don't buy this product. Dlink's website is as slow as governmental progress, and the support link - takes 30seconds to show up - just has FAQ's. no actual live support. No actual solutions. If you buy this, set it up on a driving range and shoot it.
Pros: Simple to setup, worked in seconds
Cons: Disconnects from the net every few minutes. Has latest firmware. REsets done, power downs etc etc. No matter what you try, this think can't keep up a connect with the net. So every PC - wired and wireless in our home has a constant disconnect.
