Summary: I tried to read publications on this item before purchasing, evidently, it didn't live up to the expectations this company raved about. I haven't had any luck in getting this to connect to the internet. I tried it with my old wireless adapter and it would not connect.
Summary: You got to get one of these! Even if you have the "N" standard it's going to give you an extra 10mps but if you get the 802.11ac adapter for your computer you are going to see a 400% speed increase!
Summary: Received this today and promptly replaced my failing TP-Link TL-WR941ND. It was dropping connections with both 3rd party firmware and stock. I went though the setup that was extremely easy and great for a novice.
Summary: I am running this as an AP, hard wired to Airport Extreme router which acts as my primary. The D-link's web console does not have a dedicated "bridge mode", but docs suggest just turning off DHCP and UPnP services off. The router works fine, But!

Summary: Old D-link router was not compatible with Google Chromecast. The manual stated this D-link router was one of the routers that would work seamlessly with the Chromecast device. Not only did it work with Chromecast, but it also improved the wireless signal throughout my house.
Summary: Bought it to replace a working router that didn't have 5g. I had to go through the setup several times until I decided to call tech support. They answered fast, I was happily surprised about that. Apparently the IP address needed to be changed because it was the same as my modem's.
Summary: This is a great router, I install internet equipment and can say from experience the range on this unit is excellent. I don't have the AC capabilities yet on my devices however. I went from 3 bars to 5 bars (of range) with this WiFi router.
Summary: If you don't have any AC devices don't get this; I will explain. So the beginning of the review may sound like this is a bad product but it most definitely is not. The wireless N performance is pretty strong but the signal strength is mediocre.
