Good hardware shipped with unacceptable firmware.

  • 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

  • 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.

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.

not good for security....

I am happy but, not that happy

Dari, Amazon
17 May 2009
  • 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.

Solution to damaged and lost firmware

J. Chen, Amazon
17 May 2009
  • 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?

Wireless is intermittently horrible

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 May 2009
  • 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...
