Drops and Droops

Thomas W., Newegg
28 March 2014
  • Summary: This is my first really bad review of a product. I can usually make anything work good enough. Sorry, this one has got to go.
  • Pros: It was inexpensive and easy to set up with DSL. It generally works if you're patient and using a devices with really good WIFI.
  • Cons: The most frustrating thing is the frequency of drop outs. All of the sudden, it goes deaf. It also always recovers within a minute, but that's annoying. Also, the signal strength is really quite poor, especially for phone WIFI. My neighbor's WIFI has way better signal strength in my house than this box.

Barely functional

Jeremy F., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Mine are DIR-615 I1.
  • Pros: As a router, using the factory firmware, they're fine.
  • Cons: I bought these specifically for the DD-WRT support. I was able to install DD-WRT on both, but both reboot randomly when using DD-WRT with the default settings. I've tried multiple firmware versions with the same result. The reboots are random and there's no logging information available to indicate the cause of the problem. One reboots every 15 minutes on average; the other goes a little longer, about 3 hours between reboots. I've tried other power supplies, settings,...

Not worth it

Ryan D., Newegg
22 January 2014
  • Summary: If this router wasn't free I would be returning it.
  • Pros: It was free. Better than the all in one I had from TWC.
  • Cons: Router loses connection and resets iteslf 3-4 times daily that I notice, could be doing it several more times. This make the internet borderline unusable. I will be replacing it very soon.

You Get What You Pay For

Matthew M., Newegg
23 December 2013
  • Pros: It was free w/ the purchase of a Motorola cable modem during a black Friday promotion. It offers fast wifi speeds when it is working.
  • Cons: I have to reboot the router 2-5 times a day as the connection constantly drops. This is very problematic as I have a home-based business. I have spent nearly two hours total with D-Link tech support who are very nice and patient, but unable to determine the cause of the constant dropping. We also have a small home, and the range of the wifi is very limited between floors (drops from 5 to 2 bars).

Bad Product

  • Summary: After month of using this router it started constantly rebooting by itself, it doesn't work as it should anymore. It feels like I just wasted 40 dollars and now need a new router.

"Good hardware shipped with unacceptable firmware."

andrei_ordine, CNET
25 March 2013
  • 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.

No range whatever

  • Summary: works good as long as you are in the room. But if you go to another room, the signal drops very quickly. No signal at all at the other side of our very modest house.

Do not buy!

j5ive,, TigerDirect.com
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Wireless clients loose internet access and need to log into the router and reset it every 1-2 days. Paid $35 for this after tax & shipping. Not worth it seeing as I am going to have to replace it. Do not buy this router!

Look at other Routers

Robert, TigerDirect.com
27 December 2012
  • Summary: The wireless aspect of this router has been very problematic for me. I have contacted support twice on this router and both times they just have me change some configurations and within a couple of days it fails. Their current solution is to run WEP which is not a very strong security and since I bought the router to gain stronger security, this has not met my needs.

Doesn't work well with Vista

recorey, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Oh where to start.  I had a dlink router because of Vonage - for about a year.  The router conked out already.  I ordered a new pc so I bought a new dlink (only one that supports Vonage!) and hooked everything up (pc and router). Guess what... the dlink router doesn't work on the hardwired desktop (vista).  The kids laptops worked fine, but not the desktop. According to Dell Tech Support, Best Buy Geek Squad, and Time Warner (cable provider) dlink has issues with Vista.
