Bad Firmware?

I actually liked it until I got a new dir-615

  • Summary: I had a Dir-615 ( revision B2) for about 4 years and I liked it. It only costed me $60 and worked solid for 4 years, easy to setup; unlike my old Netgear, it doesn't require a rebooting for most configuration change, like adding a virtual server.
  • Pros: inexpensive., supported by DD-WRT.
  • Cons: D-link is developing the firmware backwards.

Easy to setup but unreliable connection

M. Cortez "C O", Amazon

  • Summary: This is the first and only router I've ever installed. I found the setup very simple and straightforward. I've had the router for over 2 years now and I used to go 2 or more weeks without any problem and then suddenly not being able to connect until I reset it.

Decent entry level router.

thrilla64, CNET
16 May 2012
  • Summary: It seems to have trouble identifying when a device gets disconnected. This leads to tripping over itself in assigning an I.P. adress to new devices and ones previously connected. I stopped using DHCP and just configured static I.P.'s. No problems since.
  • Pros: Great user options. Really good range.
  • Cons: Loss off internet is frustrating.

Flash it with DD-WRT for stable connection

Giganet, Mwave.com
30 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this router after my Netgear router went bust. The setup was easy. However, with stock firmware, the router was very unstable, and dropped the connection several time a week. The router needs to reboot in order for it to work properly again.
  • Pros: Cheap. DD-WRT compatible.
  • Cons: Unstable, drop connection very often with stock firmware.

Had to use it as a wireless access point

Hector A. Ramos, Amazon
17 May 2008
  • Summary: The router did not work with my Bellsouth Westell DSL modem. Tech support tried but were not much help, only recommendation at the end was to update Firmware. After the software update, still no luck. Then, I found on the internet that it may work as a wireless access point.

Good router, but N mode doesnt work in mixed environment

Andrew Sigal, Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: This is an attractive router. I found it easy to set up, it has up-to-date security features and works well (except for the 802.11N issue) My problem with this router is that if you have any 802.11G devices in your network, then the network will run at G speeds, period (says customer support.

A lot of features; getting a bit long in the tooth

Helladog, Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: I like the ability to connect to wireless IP cam and make a virtual server, I'm not so enthusiastic about the signal reliability of the wireless side of the router. Overall, not bad, but I would but something a bit more powerful next time around.
