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

D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit Router Review

25 October 2007
  • Excerpt: The network router has become as common as the microwave in most households. Especially with such affordable ethernet prices today. These magic boxes have all but become a commodity at our local computer stores, but the quest for more speed and more importantly, wireless connectivity, has led to more congestion on today’s networks.
