Summary: Certainly not plug and play but when you get it right it works great. The caveat is that it is discontinued and the manufacturer will only supply free support thru 09.2015. That s the only reason I did not rate it 5 stars. Full price for a discontinued product seems a little wrong.
Summary: I tried flashing this router with replacement firmware (dd-wrt & open-wrt) but it simply refused to accept the new firmware. Others have had success with this B1 model, but I did not.
Pros: Lots of features: dual band, IPV6, gigabit wired. - Easy setup - Supposedly can be flashed with DD-WRT but I was unable to do so. - Most of the time it works pretty good.
Cons: I've had this router for several years now. It's an older revision B1 model. As the number of wireless devices that needed to use this router increased I started noticing more and more problems. I'd have devices lose connections spontaneously, my Squeezebox started buffering Pandora, I even had i...
Summary: My first D-Link's Wi-Fi died out on it after having it about two years, so I'm hoping this one lasts longer. The "new" one I got seems to be old stock and had to have the firmware upgraded quite a bit and required a call to technical service to get it working right.
Summary: 2nd UPDATE: As it turns out the "restart" option in the Tools section of the router's interface does not actually power down the device entirely. After unplugging the router thereby manually restarting it the wireless signal has become stable no longer failing to broadcast at random intervals.
Either I got a lemon or I configured it wrong or the gigabit switch sucks.

Summary: Like I said in my title, either I got a lemon or I've configured it wrong or the gigabit switch doesn't work. I can plug multiple devices up to it no problem but the moment I try to do any LAN traffic the speeds are horrible to non-existent.
Good Product...Misleading Description of 5.0 gigahertz Band
3 July 2011
Summary: My previous D-link router was a single band DIR-655 and did a fine job. Unfortunately, it was struck by lightning. I decided to upgrade my router to the DIR-825 to take advantage of the dual band 2.4/5.0 gigahertz capability. Supposedly 5.0 gigahertz is good for media streaming devices.
Summary: The features on the router are first rate, very tech orientated which was my reason for the purchase. I question the quality of the engineering behind the router because it gave me issues from day one, granted firmware updates did help...however there are issues that shouldn't be.
Pros: Lets just skip to the cons shall we.....
Cons: Firmware that came with it initally was pathetic, upgraded it and it got better...still dropped connection, poor signal quality at times. Push connect didn't work on a constant bases, which made using a quality encryption key non pratical. Then on the day to it being a year it just fell off a cli...
Summary: I purchased the Linksys E3000 to replace DIR-825.
Pros: Works well, easy setup, good range. I have been a D-Link customer for years and have purchased over 10 D-Link routers and 20-30 D-Link hubs/switches. Happy with D-Link products.
Cons: After 4 months, I called customer service when the WAN/internet port failed. Was on the phone almost an hour to obtain RMA. Make sure you keep the CD eventhough you don't need it. D-Link charges $12 if you don't send the CD with router for the router's warranty repair??? I can understand the rout...
