D-Link Xtreme N Networking

16 January 2008
  • Summary: For the majority of the testing of this router, I have it hooked up as a secondary access point in my network.  That is why on the statistics screenshot below you don't see any real WAN traffic.  I connected this router to my Wireless Internet Connection and it worked flawlessly, but it actually serves a better purpose in my house than in the shop where the internet connection is available.
  • Pros: Faster performance than Wireless G networks, Integrates seamlessly with mixed networks, Router has modern, sleek appearance, QoS, Port Forwarding, Virtual Server and Firewall settings in abundance
  • Cons: Performance nowhere close to rated speed, A bit pricey

  • Excerpt: D-Link’s DIR-655 was one of the fastest routers in our Draft-N roundup, and it proved best-in-breed in terms of range. But speed and range aren’t the only reasons to like this product. If you enjoy fine-tuning your network’s performance, the Xtreme N offers more control over more settings than anything else we tested.
  • Pros: Speedy; extremely high range; great QoS; superb attention to detail throughout.
  • Cons: Not the prettiest router we've ever seen. TCP output with WEP slower than expected.

  • Conclusion: Colorful, informative, and detailed product packaging will help clear the air of any potential confusion shoppers may have regarding D-Link DIR-655 when they pull it off of store shelves. The presentation is perfect for retail outlets, and gives everyone from home users to corporate buyers a positive feeling towards an informed purchase. If my Star Wars Storm Trooper analogy wasn't enough to win you over, perhaps the simple black and white design will.
  • Pros: Extremely fast throughput, Excellent wireless range, Gigabit LAN ports, Convenient mounting accessories, Windows Connect Now USB port, High-quality construction, Durable antennas, Attractive black & white finish
  • Cons: Price is above average, Poor cooling ventilation, Legacy 2.4GHz frequency range, Included patch cable is old CAT 5 standard

  • Summary: All up, we didn't have to fiddle with this router's settings at all, apart from entering our Internet and wireless connectivity details. It distributed our Internet connection and streamed multimedia files to various wireless clients without any problems, and its speeds were admirable during our tests. For users who need a new wireless router for the home, or even for a small office, this one is worth considering.
  • Pros: Its 802.11 draft-n performance was fast, we didn't have to fiddle with the default settings in order to get smooth wireless networking performance, it performed well when 802.11g and 802.11 draft-n clients were connected simultaneously
  • Cons: It doesn't have print or file server functions built in, its Web interface could be a little better, it could use more comprehensive keyword filtering options
