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.

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 (auto-connect and disconnect don't always work) 3. A number of times this month, the router has had problems connecting to the internet even though there are no problems with my c...

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. Steer clear, especially if this is your first wireless experience. My WTR54 was better.
  • 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 better
  • 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.

NOT IPV6 READY!

Patrick S., Newegg
2 May 2012
  • Summary: If you need a good IPV4 router, this is a good one now that it is a legacy product. If you need wireless for more then 25FT or IPV6 support past the very basic, look elsewhere. I purchased this because of it's IPV6 Community Gold Logo Readiness testing/certification trying to be somewhat future proof, now that IPV6 is on, the features of a IPV6 community Gold Logo ready router is a joke, basically it is a IPV6 switch with no more protection from the outside world then a...
  • Pros: Works well once you get the newer firmware installed, fairly descent throughput. External antennas. Gigabit wired ports. Worked well for IPV4 gaming.
  • Cons: Advertised as IPV6 READY, if you consider ready having no firewall or SPI for IPV6, then you are good to go. WiFi range is lacking on both bands. The firmware it shipped with was full of bugs, took several releases before this was fixed. You are basically a Beta tester for a year and once it gets debugged they release a new hardware REV. with new features to debug. Tech support is a joke. If you speak the language they do you may get something resolved. I had a firmwa...

Not worth the effort

David S., Newegg
15 March 2011
  • Summary: Look at the Newegg customers' reviews carefully before buying.
  • Pros: Works OK indoors at short ranges.
  • Cons: Poor range. Firmware upgrade is a nightmare. Poor to non-existent customer support. 'Security features' can leave administrator locked out. Sometimes it resets after power interuption, and sometime it doesn't.

Not as good as expected

hazrovi, Ebay
2 February 2011
  • Summary: It is a good router however, I expected the range to be a lot futher then it is due to the price band. It also locks up sometimes and needs a reset which can be quite annoying.
