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: 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: I am technology challenged, but managed to install and set up this router with a minimum of effort. It worked for 5 months until a lightning and thunderstorm caused a power outage. That messed up the router, my modem, and my settings on my internet provider and my television.
which is nice as the cord on the 820L is a bit ...

Summary: I'm impressed. This router replaced a DLink DIR-655. I configured the router manually off-line as a clone of the old one. The AC Adapter is the same for the two models, which is nice as the cord on the 820L is a bit shorter. I was able to hot-swap the routers once it was setup.
