T. Hughes, Amazon
18 May 2015
  • 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.

This is my second D-link.

Kenny G, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • 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.

Decent, but not wonderful

techie, Amazon
16 March 2013
  • 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.

Good but mixed bag

Kevin R, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: The Good: A wealth of features and pages of configuration options for just about any situation. Manual configuration was easy since I'm an old hat at setting these up (see con below). Firmware 1.01 update required to fix issues and add function of network shareport went smoothly.

Good Product...Misleading Description of 5.0 gigahertz Band

JC, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • 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.

Mac address filtering problem

Justin K, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: If you like to enable mac address filtering on your router and have any device that does not start with a 00: (in my case an ipod touch) do not get this router. It amazes me that such a big company can't fix such a simple flaw.

Great wireless router from D-Link but!

dbnj21, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: Pros: fast and easy setup. dual band SSID is a big plus for me. Cons: USB Shared Port technology only support up to 16 gig drive!!! Make sure you upgrade Shared port utility to version 3.0. the CD will install version 1.0 on your PC.

Firmware Not Ready for Prime-Time

ESVK, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that I replaced my D-Link DIR-655 router with this DIR-825 (firmware 1.01) and combined it with a D-Link DWA-160 USB Adapter (software 2.2). I really wanted to like this router combo, but there are too many issues with the 5GHZ portion to recommend this as of now.

disappointing

blekenbleu, Amazon
29 December 2010
  • Summary: Setup using only the web interface; replacing a Netgear WGR614. The D-Link menus seem poorly organized. With over a dozen networked devices, I depend on reserved DHCP settings, which D-Link does support. Manually configured 5GHz for a+n, 2.5GHz for g+n.
