I am happy but, not that happy

Dari, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: The router is ok, but I am dissatisfied because every day I have to disconnected and connected twice a day. The reason is that the router loses the Internet signal even though it is directly connected :/ don't know if its this brand in particular or just that my router came with something wrong.

Good hardware shipped with unacceptable firmware.

andrei_ordine, CNET
25 March 2013
  • Summary: Do not expect this device to work right out of box. If you bought it, replace the firmware with DD-WRT.
  • Pros: This wireless router gives a decent performance, but only after fully replacing the original firmware with DD-WRT, a Linux-based router firmware.
  • Cons: Do not expect this device to work right out of box.

Dlink ?!!!

root_ca, CNET
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Come jan2010, another laptop could not connect, i called the support and downloaded the latest firmware. Fast forward to today, the disconnection was to frequent i called Dlink again and verified i have the latest firmware and that i needed to replace it with new one.
  • Pros: I was compelled to create a username and pwd just to give feedback on this D-link product(s).
  • Cons: I had a WBR2310 bought in jan2009, after around 6 mths i experienced disconnection when two laptops are running. Without calling Dlink, i did what maybe a casual procedure- unplugged and plugged the power cable. Worked fine.

Wireless is intermittently horrible

Lewis Cass Dalton, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought the DIR-615 for my main gateway and for an N wireless network. For the most part it works well. The biggest problem is that the wireless connection is horrible. I have a D-Link DAP-1522 that I also bought to connect my downstairs Tivo and Boxee box to the router since there wasn't a way to make a wired connection. I get nowhere near N speeds.

Doesn't work with Polycom VOIP phones

DiverCat007, Amazon
10 February 2011
  • Summary: I was attempting to upgrade from a Linksys WRT54GS (with current firmware) to obtain "n" wireless and perhaps better wireless range. I never dreamed I'd be stopped dead in my tracks hooking up my VOIP phone. I opened all ports per the phone manufacturer's instructions, and even put the phone's IP in the DMZ: no joy. Next, I called D-Link customer no-service: the agent was difficult to understand and could offer no assistance to correct the issue.

Promises Not Delivered

T. Knouf "MoreMoneyMom.com", Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: There are so many things that can go wrong in a network, you shouldn't have to worry about your router being one of them. That should be the stable constant amongst all the variable 802/a/b/n/g drivers, adaptors, certificates, wpa, blah, blah, etc. This product falls short. My son spent 4 hours trying to install this thing until I came home and finally installed it. Complaint 1: While setting it up with the CD, it froze and never "installed.

Solution to damaged and lost firmware

J. Chen, Amazon
1 June 2008
  • Summary: The version A of this router is not stable. If your network streams too much, the router can suddenly drop connection and lose its firmware. How can you configure the router without firmware in it or with damaged firmware? If you connect to your router and it said connection is limited or restricted, and you are not able to get in router's configuration page usually at 192.168.0.1 , which means your firmware is lost or damaged.

Eh, probably not.

Sid Sowder, Amazon
9 November 2007
  • Summary: Hmmm. I don't know that I'd buy this one again. I got it home, didn't read anything, didn't put any discs in, put it behind my Motorola cable modem, cloned my Mac's MAC address, and it more-or-less worked off the bat. You know a few resets but mostly I think it was the modem's fault. I got it set up. DHCP with some reservations for two machines.

Not what it says on the tin

Mattski, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this thinking it would be a new router -what I got what a plain white box with "virgin router" written on the side in biro. I tried to set it up manually, as I have a fairly good knowledge of routers, but hit a problem, but was unable to connect it wirelessly. Called D-Link for support and to my surprise found out that this was a router that was originally supplied by Virgin media for use with their equipment and was never meant to be sold, hence D-link were...
