Why can't they do a router right?

Johnbythebay, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Cloud feature is hard to setup and really not useful. The router clogs up the network, if you have more than two computers/devices connecting to it, the download speed drops down dramatically. Two thumbs down!

Product was a failure

Charles C., Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: Upon receiving the router, I plugged it in and it started working right away. I was thrilled! Then, within 5 minutes it was dropping connections every couple minutes, and then it just wouldn't connect via wifi at all. Highly Disappointed.

Poor coverage

Danny Khen, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: It is beautifully designed, and has all the extra cloud features for anyone who cares (I don't). But it doesn't have the core essential capability of a wireless router: good coverage. Outside of the room where it is located, reception in my house (average sized house) is anywhere between poor and non existent.

You get what you pay for

  • Summary: This router, although was fairly low priced, has been consistently slow in response time and not worth buying.

Erratic Behavior

Max G., Amazon
18 October 2012
  • Summary: When is works, its pretty fast. Especially the Gigabit Ethernet. However, WHEN is works is more or less up to it. Needs to be restarted at least once a day. Looses connection to internet. Can't reliably handle data passing through it, so forget about using AirPlay or Sonos or anything else that streams from one computer to another. Unless you like your songs to pause and skip ever 5 seconds. I'm talking about components in the same room as the router.

A fast router, with bad documentation and questionable cloud service

R. Hammer "rhammer", Amazon
9 March 2012
  • Summary: I'm not new to the router world and have had many of wireless routers, from the 802.11b's, a's, n's, MIMO, etc. PROS: This DLINK DIR-636L router packs a powerful punch in terms of wireless signal. It's fast and has great coverage throughout my house (compared to some of the 802.11n Linksys ones I have) This is also one of the few routers I've seen with a power button.

"Man får det man betalar för"

Bambie, NetonNet
30 December 2014
  • Conclusion: Håller med ovan person som skrev samma rubrik. Sure, den är smidig och ser bra ut, men när det kommer till prestanda så är den inte att rekommendera. Både datorn, tvn och mobilen tappar anslutningen ca 1 gång i timmen. Datorn snappar snabbt tillbaks, men tvn måste jag gå in och söka om routern igen för att den ska kunna ansluta. (Hände inte med min första router). Vilket är väldigt frustrerande när man försöker kolla film via netflix/viaplay.

Inget för mig

Hussegubben, NetonNet
12 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Säkert en produkt som passar andra, men definitivt inte mig. Att ansluta den med kabel till "huvuddatorn" i nätverket var föredömligt enkelt, likaså att ansluta mobilen och surfplattan. Men att få in laptopen med MS Vista var tji. Kontaktade D-Link som ansåg att jag borde prova lite olika inställningar i routern utan att ange vad som skulle ändras. Lät den gå i retur.

  • Excerpt: динамически IP не получил от провайдера -тупо висит.. с настройками статическими IP и тп- в веб настройке показывает что подсоединен, но вот интернет не раздает (ни по LAN ни WiFI ) ...*** настройки и "американские"прошивки не помогли\ читал про негатив вообщем то по длинку, решил рискнуть _ прошлый dir-300nru, как изначально залил прошивку с какого то форума - ни одного глюка года за 2..
  • Pros: хмм.. наверно внешний вид)
