Summary: I like this router but it is not compatible with certain computers especially if there is not a CD-Rom drive because this comes with a CD that has to be used to install the system on the computer.

Summary: When I purchased this router, I was worried about setting up although it says easy to set up. It needs 6 step to set up, but I had trouble on the 3rd step and I called the D-Link customer service. my case number was C6545699 and the lady from D-link who helped me was so kind and patient. I would like to say thanks for her. Her ID number was AR004237. Wireless connection was so fast and good. I am so satisfied with this product.
Summary: Only a few weeks with this router but it s been working great so far. Mine is E3 verison and flashable to DDWART but i decided to go back to manufacturer firmware as it works better for me. Pros: -Cheap & complete wifi solution. -Wifi coverage is slightly better than TP-Link 741nd & 840nd and Netgear WNR3500L that I also have at home. Cons: - DHCP must be turned off if the router is used as secondary router on a network (not the one directly connected to the modem).
You need dd wrt firmware on this router to fix it. Its really simple to use.

Summary: Look up community developed firmware for this router. You are missing out. Before I flashed it to DD-Wrt it would drop packets, now it works flawlessly and the QoS is so much better than the default firmware.
Summary: Works good, only had one glitch hooking it up. It uses the same standard IP as my HughesNet modem, 192.168.0.1, that conflict caused the two not to work together...I changed the IP of the D-Link in the admin console and everything works great. I would imagine that is the problem some others are having. This D-Link's range is lacking a little but it states that it is intended for apartments on the box. It does not however state that in the description on Amazon.
Summary: Bought this when it came up as an Amazon Deal of the Day, and haven't been disappointed. It's not a high-end N router, but then again, for what I paid, I wasn't expecting that. Better coverage than the the failing G router it replaced, easy install and no problems to date.
