Summary: Just for the record, Glenn, a D-Link tech, is an outstanding individual. At midnight, local time, my D-Link stopped working. I had never updated firmware since buying the DIR-825 and there were five updates.
Summary: Second time is a charm for this purchase. The first D-Link DIR-825 was DOA, the wall wart was dead. who would think! This second unit worked great. Both the 2.4 and 5 GHz signal could be found all over the huge conference room we were in.
Summary: My D-Link Dir-655 router was going bad (power connector). I have had it for quite awhile, so I wasn't to upset by its failing. I decided on this Dir-825 after researching it. I could tell the difference as soon as I set it up on my home system.
Summary: I had a D-Link 615 that failed after a lightning strike. This was rated the best for what I was willing to spend ($72). I bought it 4/29/2013. I had to tell our service provider, Cyber Broadband, that I put a new router in so they would allow it to be found.
Summary: Smoking hot performance. Have it feeding my Sony DVD player via WiFI and my new Visio TV via WiFi. Handles NetFlix at the same time as my hardwired Dell desktop computer. Only issus is that FIOS does not support this unit.
