Good Router With Basic Issues

Roger Fox, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: This router works well. The only REAL shortcoming is the directions, if that's what you call this paper. Written by an English speaker who couldn't translate from Chinese. Be nice to get some written directions in layman English.

Significant Performance Decline after three months

Joshua B. Brackin, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Dl-Link DIR636L for several reasons. One is that it offers 300 Mbps performance over 2.4 Ghz while similarly priced routers only provide 150 Mbps. The other two reasons are that this model offers Gigabyte ethernet ports, which is unusual at this price point, and that it has a USB Port for an External HD. The Gigabyte Ports work very well (as long as you use a Cat6 ethernet cable).

Worked OK Then Went Bad!!!

Ward Wayne, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: This router worked fine for about 6 months. After that, I noticed about every other morning it was down and I had to restart. I have the latest firmware so I am not sure what is the problem. I work from home and Internet access is imperative for me to connect to the corporate network via VPN so I replaced it. I bought Medialink - Wireless N Broadband Router and it has been working for the last 2 months.

Router is okay

J. B., Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: I like the look. The power off button is a nice feature. Allot of power and control for the home user. May be a DDWRT firmware in the making. I really don't like the usb drive net access interface (SharePort). Very poorly designed and coded. Cannot read file to play straight to another device like a Net enabled TV. You must download the file locally to your device first.

Great router but maybe not for satellite modem internet

the Chief, Amazon
8 November 2012
  • Summary: This router was very easy to install and set up. The browser portal to the router is very clean and simple to use. My only concern is the satellite modem to router conncectivity may have some additional advanced setup configuration necessary. Today after I changed my PC direct ethernet connection to the modem to the router, I have had intermittent connectivity.

Not impressed

Donnie,, TigerDirect.com
28 September 2012
  • Summary: The setup was super easy and being able to see this from the cloud is cool. However, I was very disappointed in the performance. My wireless internet slowed down to a crawl compare to the old Linksys that I replaced. This router also locked up 2 to 3 times weekly. I ended up sending it back in for a refund.

User Review

Floppy_63Rus, citilink.ru

  • Summary: К сожалению, нормальных, сторонних прошивок по типу DD-WRT найти на него не удалось.
  • Pros: Мощный процессор 700MHz, который без проблем тянет полные 100 и более мегабит от провайдера.
  • Cons: Как и всегда, это убогая поддержка со стороны D-Link, особенно в России.
