Dual Band: useful if your neighbors have overpopulated the 2.4 Ghz band

wrlzz, Ebay

  • Summary: I have worked with D-Link DIR-825 in research on wireless networking / wireless mesh but with rev B1. This one is rev A1. Rev A1 which does not support third party operating systems like openwrt or dd-wrt. However, the router is great for home connectivity. The reason I got this router is because it's dual band, meaning I can setup my network on either the 2.4 or the 5 Ghz band.

The DIR-825 is a great product for anyone.

  • Summary: After some searching I decided to go with the DIR-825. I was not disappointed. I got it out of the box, powered it up. I had some issues while setting up, but after updating my modem from my cable company, all issues went away. I got both bands up and running. Connect my PC and MAC Desktops to the 5GHz channel and mobile, gaming devices to the 2.5HGz. Everyone was happy. I tested the speed and quality of the 825 this past saturday.
  • Pros: The DIR-825 router is a great product and the price point is hard to match for a dual band. Setup was extremely easy, and coverage on the dual bands are excellent!
  • Cons: I think a better design on the antennas is needed. Auto update on firmware would be good as well.

Never ever buy this piece of crap. Ever

  • Summary: Absolute Garbage. Had it for almost 2 years and nothing but problems. I tried hundreds of things to fix the problems but nothing ever worked. I bought a netgear router for half the price i bought this one for and it actually works better than the dir-825 ever did.
  • Pros: It works sometimes. just sometimes though
  • Cons: Lags hard a lot, Drops connections a lot (and never recovers them unless manually restarted), non-user friendly interface, Will drop all other connections if someone uploads anything, Takes FOREVER to reboot when you have to fix any of these problems

A great dual mode N band router for the price.

jgrues68, Ebay

  • Summary: This is a decent router for the price you can get it for on Ebay. It's an economical way to venture into the dual channel arena without spending a great deal of money. If the 2.4Ghz band is all full with your neighbors' access points... you might want to give 5.8 Ghz a try. Chances are there will be much less if any interference in the higher band, since most people are still using 2.4 GHz.

  • Summary: Great router very easy to install GREAT FOR GAMING!!! Very good feature for the price, I cannot say how much I love this router. DLink's QoS feature actually lives up to the claims, I am very very happy. Router is currently running a desktop PC, 24" iMAC, Xbox 360, (and two Windows laptops, and 2 Smartphones via WiFi).
