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. The access control, to limit kids internet access time, does not work properly, either. Fortunately, this router is compatible with DD-WRT. So I went ahead and flashed it.
Pros: Cheap. DD-WRT compatible.
Cons: Unstable, drop connection very often with stock firmware.
Good router, but N mode doesnt work in mixed environment

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.) I have one network device that is 802.11G and non-upgradeable.
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. Lately, I've been having to reset the router 4 to 6 times a day. I have 2 teenagers at home who have smart phones, an iPad, 2 laptops, a Wii and 2 smart tv's that stream Netflix and other content.
Summary: I have owned and used this router for over a year. This is a good value for price unit, if you do not need to have the latest, greatest wireless router that includes all of the bells and whistles (which most will never reall...
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. Turned off DHCP, and turned it into basically a switch or hub. I am using this way and is working fine. Good signal strength and good throughput.
Excerpt: -It's DD-WRT compatible -Insanely high power requirement out of the box, hugely prone to overheating-Drops wireless connections continually-All indications are that D-Hyperlink has regarded this router a full and utter failure, and are just selling off the excess If you have a DD-WRT compatible version of this router (google 'dir-615 dd-wrt'), then you can make it all greater.
Summary: The price is very reasonable and the speed of delivery excellent. But the router comes with a continental power adapter in a German-language pack (with multilingual instructions). The installation CD didn't seem to work, and when I tried to set it up manually using [...], I got German language only instructions.
Excerpt: Great price and a lot of capabilities for a uncomplicated house network. Range appears quite excellent; better than my old router, but that isn't saying significantly simply because my old router was about 7 years old. Setup was not as straightforward as advertised. It may have been easier had I identified the username and password to my old router. I must have modified it from the default at some point, and I couldn't figure out what it was.
Excerpt: Affordable. Got the DIR-615 C1 version from New Egg for all of twenty smackers SHIPPED a couple of months back! I also bought an older A version with removeable antennas utilized from another on the web internet web page for HALF New Egg's cost of the newer C1 router. The C1 version has no removeable antennas like the A version of this router! Like so many other people say....
