Subseqent Review After a Few Years with Special Setup Information

Hasan al-Basri "hasan", Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this router from Amazon because two WRT160N's from Linksys both locked up within 10-12 hours of use, in spite of directed cooling fans. This is a very preliminary review that attempts to help solve some problems that might face anyone converting from the popular Linksys routers to this...

Router

  • Summary: Turns out I didn't need it, because Comcast would have put one in with less brain work from me. I don't know how it compares to other routers, but I had a bit of trouble from time to time.

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

  • 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.

Good if you update firmware

Chris G., Newegg
26 March 2013
  • Summary: If you are using even the latest d-link firmware forget it - go with the latest DDWRT one - mine has been rock solid since then. 5ghz has been a little ify and I haven't had much success with that so far - but that could ne my wireless nic or just general home environment issues.
  • Pros: Fast and solid if the right firmware is on it - don't go with the stock firmware get the DDWRT latest version and you can't go wrong.
  • Cons: Dual band 5 gb seems to have issues broadcasting the signal over distances.

D-Link DIR-825

10 January 2013
  • Summary: If you're hesitant to buy this router because of the cons listed above. I would get a friend to help you set it up. Because it really is a good router, hence the 4/5 eggs.
  • Pros: I've found that this router works really well in a home environment. It has a really good broadcast range. I upgraded from a linksys WRT54GL and the difference in the range is what I love about this router. The router is upstairs and I get great signal downstairs whereas before I couldn't use any...
  • Cons: I have a hard time saying anything bad about this router. The only con I can think of would be the difficulty setting up the router at first. The interface wasn't really friendly. But once I got it up and running, there are no complaints.

Good router

John M., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Summary: I needed a good router to provide static DHCP assignments to some network hardware, and provide a good guest internet access point. This router did both of these perfectly and correctly the first time.
  • Pros: Does what the product advertises, has a lot of nice small features for the price, signal is awesome through a 3 story house.
  • Cons: I had some trouble setting the router up on first install. When I swapped the internal IP of the router, it's DHCP died for about 10 minutes. It also stopped responding to any input from a static IP on the network despite resets. After I let it sit long enough, it decided to come back alive and e...

  • Pros: Nice router, I wanted to run DD-WRT on it but the wifi drivers DD uses are not good. I flashed Gargoyle firmware on it which is based on OpenWRT and this thing is rock solid.
  • Cons: None really just didn't care for the stock firmware.
