Unit is already out-dated

Jellum, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: This unit lacks the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) necessary for configuring IP addresses; therefore, it's not acceptable for use on your local network if you desire to access your Smart TV functions. Aside from that short-fall the unit provides average network service.

Mediocre at best

John O., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I live in a 3-story house. My router is on the ground floor but centrally located. Even on the second floor 5ghz reception is terrible; I've long since abandoned 5ghz. 2.4 ghz band usually works fine but why did I pay for a dual-band??
  • Pros: 2.4 ghz band is usually reliable
  • Cons: 5ghz band is awful. General range mediocre.

I expect a product to work for 4 years

Amazon Customer "Jared Barneck", Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: This product died after 2 years and two months. It was great while it lasted. It now continually drops. It took me a while to narrow it down to the wifi too. I will give it a star for each year.

It works....barely

Ted K., Newegg
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Wouldn't buy it if I had a second chance.
  • Pros: Works most of the time. Dual-bands work simultaneously without issue.
  • Cons: 1. D-Link claims that the USB port on this router works with USB hubs, but I went 0/3 trying to connect a USB hub to it. All USB hubs were different makes & models (some powered, some not). Nothing would work and D-Link customer service was almost useless. 2. The SharePort software is touchy (aut...

Keep Looking!

Joseph L., Newegg
24 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my trusty old Linksys WTR54 thinking it was time for an upgrade to wireless n with dual band. Boy was I wrong. The signal coverage in my modest little home was laughable. When it did work it kept dropping off after a short while. This ain't my first wireless rodeo either.
  • Pros: Looks nice and the price was ok. Got it on sale. Somewhat easy to install if you're a noob. The cd is good for beginners.
  • Cons: Horrible signal coverage. Constant signal loss and droppage.

Not worth the Price

Tamazin G., Newegg
5 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for wireless streaming video to my xbox 360 and PS3 it failed in every respect. It does look really nice I really wanted this to work i have a D-link Gamerlounge and it has sporadic dropped signals I think im going to go back to netgear NETGEAR WNDR3700-100NAS sounds like it might work...
  • Pros: Nice Looking, works great for wired devices easy setup
  • Cons: doesnt stay connected to wireless devices my PS3 wont even reconize it

Media devices don't connect to the 5GHz waste of router

Luis M., Newegg
2 September 2012
  • Summary: ASUS router does the same job as this with less money.
  • Pros: price promotion of $64 color white blinking blue lights
  • Cons: Simply a waste of router, media devices cannot use the 5GHz network, ipod touch, xbox 360s, bravia tv, voip. This is just a waste of router and there is no way to tweak it to make use of the dual bands. A regular 2.4GHz is more reliable for current media devices.
