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.
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,...
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).
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!
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.
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.
