Garbage

Volio, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: I been a D-Link user all my life, and needless to say I always been happy with the quality and functionallity . But not with this product. I bought this item thinking I would get the one on the picture which seems well build, tough and of good quality which I was used to by D-Link. But for my surprise I got this item [...]B, which at first sight looked ugly, simple, light and build cheap in general.

Worst DLink N300 Router

Anonymous, Newegg
4 January 2014
  • Pros: Easy Configuration
  • Cons: I bought a Dlink N300 Cloud Router just yesterday and configured successfully. To verify the range of it, tried moving my laptop, smart phones, notepad just a 4mtr away and the signal weakend and the devices were trying hard searching the network connection. Called up customer care and they say they cant help in range as it works fine if the devices are near to router. Cleverly answered. To be frank, we had earlier Netgear N150, which was installed in 3rd floor of the...

User Review

Matthew D., Newegg
31 October 2013
  • Summary: I was very happy with this product for a year and a half but then the DSL connection started to drop as if due to weak signal. A reboot would re-initiate the connection but it would then drop again in a couple of days. Warranty was one year. I've replaced this modem with a new one and the problem has gone away.
  • Pros: Good product and features. Plenty of bells and whistles for a standard home network. Web interface was easy to navigate and functional.
  • Cons: Started having problems after a year and a half of ownership.

to clarify some information

Techie with a problem., Amazon

  • Summary: It should be noted that there are two 2740b based types the n615 and n300. I noticed that several people mix up the two that have almost identical specifications. However the 615 is not so hot on the wireless side where as the 300 is. The N300 has better ADSL 2 & 2+ abilities but less accessible features. If you are not into configuring a large amountof features or go as far as DD-WRT features then the n300 is fine.

Great router. Why bad reviews?

carlos f., Newegg
5 December 2012
  • Summary: I play games online (modern warfare 3, etc.), and the game was showing the NAT as being "strict" even when the PS3 was showing a type 2 which should be open. I resolved this problem by configuring a DMZ. Problem solved. Instructions on how to do this can be found online. Overall I'm very happy with this modem router and I have no problem recommending this to anybody looking for an excellent overall product. Recommended.
  • Pros: Easy to configure with the included CD or with the online configuration page. The online configuration page is user friendly and the layout is user friendly. I Haven't experienced any disconnection issues, heating up or any other issues. My experience with the router has been a positive one and since people only leave reviews when they are mad, I decided to write my own so you can make a better decision.
  • Cons: None.
