Summary: Hardware Version: B1 Firmware Version: 2.02NA In use since Aug, 2009. Bought another for backup at a great price with reliable on time delivery from NewEgg.
Pros: Great reliability and performance. Using both bands 2.4 & 5 GHz the 2.4 for regular laptops, etc and the 5GHz and the 4 1-GHz ports switch for multimedia without any anomalies to report. Using CyberPower UPS for the network switches, router, and a SpeedStream 5100 DSL modem.
Cons: None really (the blue LEDs are a bit bright but some opaque tape solved that).
Summary: This is a decent router for the price you can get it for on Ebay. It's an economical way to venture into the dual channel arena without spending a great deal of money. If the 2.4Ghz band is all full with your neighbors' access points... you might want to give 5.8 Ghz a try. Chances are there will be much less if any interference in the higher band, since most people are still using 2.4 GHz.
Summary: Great router very easy to install GREAT FOR GAMING!!! Very good feature for the price, I cannot say how much I love this router. DLink's QoS feature actually lives up to the claims, I am very very happy. Router is currently running a desktop PC, 24" iMAC, Xbox 360, (and two Windows laptops, and 2 Smartphones via WiFi).
Summary: I went from a Linksys WRT54G to the DIR-825, the setup was very easy, the range seems to be slightly better on the Dlink, the speed of the connection is noticeably faster. These are quite reasonable on the used market. If you see one, grab it.
Summary: Very Nice Router, it hooks up several computers,and your printer. So my stand alone printer is now hooked-up and my laptop works online also. The over all problem, D-Link will not support any of their routers bought on eBay. I don't think that is fair! Most of us buy what we want. The price I bought it for was a lot cheaper than what D-link sold them for.
Summary: I have the A1 revision and I'm running v1.13 of the firmware, but in almost 2 years, I have had none of the problems that others have claimed. I finally got curious after the warranty ran out, because a lot of people said the problems were heat related, so I opened it up with the intention of replacing the flat, ceramic heat sinks with better ones. Lo and behold, the guts of mine look different than the pics I've seen on the the internet.
Pros: Completely stable. Has all the range I need. Antennas are replaceable, although I have not had the need to replace them, yet. Configuration menus are the simplest and most intuitive that I have seen on a networking product. 4 gigabit ports are awesome. Shareport USB connection and utility are a nice feature that I have just now started to use with a Seagate external HDD. Great for storing documents and photos that many people need or would like to have free access to....
Cons: 5Ghz band could have better range. Pumping out 58-62% signal strength through 12 feet of floor and two walls. Had a little bit of trouble configuring it to work with a Cableone DocSis modem since they shared the same default IP address. You can only access the Shareport drive from one location at a time.
