Good at first...

Anthony S., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Well it crapped out about 6 months after buying it. The customer service is in India or something and the person I was talking to had an Indian accent that was very strong, as well as poor english. Not the person's fault but it was impossible to get any "customer service". Pass on this brand. Poo...

Would Not Buy Again

Jeffrey F., Newegg
12 February 2012
  • Pros: I did get it to work with AT&T DSL (Michigan). It did work OK for just over 1 year. It seemed like a good price for a combo DSL model / wireless router. Compact size.
  • Cons: Did not work right out of the box but there was enough info available between AT&T and D-Link to configure it. I would not say it was easy to set up. The range seemed low. Spotty signal just 2 rooms over (~25 ft). Laptop and wii had trouble picking it up. The wireless router it replaced had bette...

Would Buy Again, Does connect to AT&T DSL

Derek P., Newegg
16 July 2011
  • Summary: I put a year on this before writing a review so I could give useful information here. This unit will provide you with the home network you are looking for, for the best price out there.
  • Pros: This DLS modem/router is relatively inexpensive, and provides more functionality than 90% or better of users will require. Simple to configure if you have any tech experience at all, and should allow anyone without that knowledge to configure it if you read the documentation. Has transmitting pow...
  • Cons: Heat can be an issue if you use default configuration. Default configuration has transmission power set to 100%. I mounted my unit to the wall with a gap of 1/4 inch to allow ventilation. I also wrapped the cords around the mounting screws under it which decreased ventilation a little. After a mo...

Think again

brian e., Newegg
29 June 2011
  • Pros: Great service from Newegg...... price was good
  • Cons: Doesn't work for AT&T even if you manually configure it.. I spent hours trying to configure this modem/router and even spent time with AT&T and D-Link tech support with no luck. If your buying it for AT&T ISP they wont help unless you pay them for tech support because it's not a product they sold...

Missing DHCP static IP assignment

Richard P., Newegg
27 June 2011
  • Summary: If I would've known this didn't support IP assignment within the DHCP setup, I would've bought a different DSL Modem. I THINK I can make this work but, if I can't for my needs, I may have to return it and get an upgrade.
  • Pros: Appears to have most features that a home user would need. Browser based administration is pretty quick - much faster than the modem it'll be replacing.
  • Cons: Missing the ability to assign specific IP addresses to particular pieces of equipment (preferrably by MAC) - for instance, I have several servers that I want on specific IP addresses to make routing easier. This DSL Modem doesn't appear to have that capability so, I may have to hard code an IP in...

threw me some curves

john t., Newegg
7 June 2011
  • Summary: The slow initiation sequence threw me some curves. I wasn't waiting long enough for it to lock on the dsl line and this caused about an hour of futzing with settings to no avail. This was a case where I should have read the manual rather than making assumptions do to "high" knowledge and experience.
  • Pros: cheap and very good range compared to Lynksys b only router it replaced.
  • Cons: very slow to connect to DSL, about 5 minutes after power up on my phone line...Verizon says the line is clean.

Great Modem/Router Combo for DSL

Leland W., Newegg
6 June 2011
  • Summary: Recently installed a DSL line and needed a modem and router. I did not want to rent or buy from AT&T so I began looking at other options. This was the best priced package for what you get.
  • Pros: Easy set up, works with AT&T DSL service in the southeast.
  • Cons: Unit tends to get warm while operating.
