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. 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

Andrew Sigal, Amazon

  • 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.

Easy to setup but unreliable connection

M. Cortez "C O", Amazon
13 January 2010
  • 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.

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. 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.

D-Link wireless router

Philip Barnard, Amazon
11 January 2013
  • 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.

D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router

  • 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.
