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

  • Summary: Set the router to use WEP, for instance, and it warns that your network will not run in 802.11n mode because that standard does not support WEP. This is to be expected, of course, but TCP throughput with WEP enabled was considerably slower on the DIR-655 than it was with competing routers. On the other hand, the DIR-655 delivered nearly three times faster scores at maximum range without WEP enabled than did the next contender.
  • 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.
